  1. Teresa,
    Thank you for the great instructions. I would like to make this a long scarf would that be possible? Or will it through off the gauge? thank you.

  2. Thank you so much for posting these tutorials! I made a few shell scarves for cousins in Mexico while I was there this past December and one for a cousin in Texas. I also just finished a set of shell hat and scarf for a friend in a very nice sapphire blue. These are easy and they look elegant.

  3. As with many others, I learned to crochet a little as a child and I now want to pick it back up. I can do a chain, sc, and dc pretty well and just finished a blanket. I’m now trying to make a shell scarf for my grandson who is 3. I chained 16 (for a smaller neck size) and followed the instructions for the first row, but at the end, it said to skip 2 chains and single crochet, but I had no chains left – only the three scallops. This was right before it said to single crochet, chain 3 & turn.

  5. I’m pretty sure I’m doing everything right but the first row always comes out curving. It is supposed to be 5 dc in the one chain. Is it just my tension maybe? I’ve tried adjusting my tension but everytime the row comes odd and stretched looking! Help!
    Your crochet videos have helped me learn a new hobby, thank you! 😀

  6. I’ve practiced this, but I think I crochet too tightly, since my shells come out small and the spaces in my chain look huge in comparison… It just looks awkward…
    More practice, I suppose…

  7. Hi, thank you for your time in those tutorial videos for us, iam a begginner. I love your video. Please, explain me if is better to do double crochet passing the hook in one loop or two loop from the chain below. Excuse my english. Thanks from Puerto Rico.

  8. @dancehappy202 never mind! i figured it out. i just did a starting chain of 21 and my pattern is 3 shells 2 shells 3 shells 2 shells. it’s the perfect width for her neck now. BTW… everytime i want to learn a stitch i watch YOUR videos. they are so easy to learn when i can see and hear it very clearly. thankyou so much for taking the time to teach so many people!

  9. if i wanted to make this scarf and stitch for my daughter how long would my starting chain be? she is 2 and it’s a little wide for her neck

  10. Teresa, Thank you sooooo much for your videos. I wanted to learn how to crochet but was being taught by right handers. I didnt catch on until I saw your videos. Thank you! Thanks for doing different things like hats and such.

  11. Teresa: thank you so much!!!! your videos are very clear and wonderfull. I’m starting in the crochet and I’m practing every day, I don’t speak english but I can understand you very well, thank you again and you are the number one , best wishes from Chile.

  12. Thanks Teresa for all your wonderful and clear tutorials. It´s so easy to follow your instructions. I van´t get enough of your videos. Many greetings from Italy

  13. @dskhdjk I always go below the two loops at the top of the stitch. It would not hurt anything if you did go through the front or back only. I go through both because I find that is most secure where, one loop may pull up and create a hole.

  14. Your videos are great! I have trouble seeing if you go under one loop or two loops, the front and back loops. Will it make any difference if you do either one? Which one did you do in this video or do you have another preference?

  15. @urbancyclist1 You can make hats and afghans, just about everything with the single and double crochet. They are the basic stitches.

  16. I was up till 2am crocheting! What type of things can I do with chain, dc, sc, tb… just to give me some ideas of how much progress I am making.

  17. I am working on an afghan pattern that calls for me to do, “v stitch twice”, does this mean that I do 2 v stitches in the same chain or do I do 1 v stitch in 1 chain and the 2nd v stitch in the 2nd chain. It wasn’t very clear, and I’ve taken this down twice now, I’m never ending up with the number of stitches it says. I put 2 v stitches in 1 chain. Thanks in advance

  18. @shampoobla I would recommend between 175-250 chains. It is going to depend on the size yarn and hook that you use as well.

  19. i did 130 ch looks like a scarf and thicker in some areas than others do you think it will flatten out if i keep going’.. looks good tho wit the yarn i have . used an i needle if i change to j will it look funny… just trying to save my hard work

  20. Have you ever did a sport baby blanket. I am having a little trouble with a st. I was hoping you could help me out. I tried to email you, but I was doing something wrong.

  21. I am new to crochet and have read the instructions but am still a little confused. I would like to make an afghan with this stitch but can not figure out how long to make my chain. Thank you for your help in advance!

  22. I am pretty new to crocheting and I have read the instructions but I am still confused. I would like to start an afghan with this stitch but can not figure out how long of a chain I should make. Thank you for your help in advance!

  23. Finally, I found someone who can teach me this stitch. It is so easy to follow. Thank you so much. I am so relieved. I can start crocheting more complicated patterns. I am subscribing.

  24. I am saying thank you for saving me and teaching me all these wonderful new things yeahh who I have been crocheting for years and could never read these darn patterns to learn. I watch you one time maybe two lol and I am doing things i could only dream of.. I just love you…Ravelry girls wait till you see me now lol…

  25. @MrSunsine Köszönöm az észrevételeket. Aki ellátogat a profilom, meglátod sok lejátszási listákat a különböző minták közül lehet választani.

  26. This is so awesome!!! I just learned how to do this stitch in a matter of 20 minutes thanks to your tutorial!! Sure beats reading and following a book pattern any day!! Guess I’m finding out (thanks to your tutorials) that I am a visual learner 🙂 Thanks again!!

  27. Thank you so much Teresa, I learn how to crochet by your video and I done many lovely projects but I got a few questions, how to do half and double treble crochet cluster? Could you please show me?
