Reading Patterns: Symbols & Diagrams

juststitched:

Some patterns use symbols instead of abbreviations, and work in a diagram format rather than written out. This can be extremely helpful to include in any written pattern, since crochet is a worldwide craft, and some crocheters may not be able to read your language.

Below is an example of a crochet diagram using symbols. (click photo for link to pattern page). In this diagram, the arrow shows you where to begin, solid dashes are chains, x’s are single crochet, a cross is double crochet, and so on (the full key and pattern are here.)

For this #ThrowbackThursday, why not teach yourself how to read crochet diagram chart patterns!

WIP WEDNESDAY: What’s on your hooks?

I am still working on my Freddy peg figure. I put it aside to make some cute coasters, but I’m thinking about finishing it up. (I just have one arm/hand left to go - and it’s not even the gloved hand!) It won’t take very long to finish!

What are you working on this fine Wednesday?

juststitched Someone on campus asked me to crochet a few tams for him. I’ve done hats before but never long slouchy tams like pictured. I’m worried about getting the tip as well as the length. I’ve looked online and I have yet to find a tutorial for a hat exactly like this. This tam isn’t slouchy like other tams. Please help. Also, I’ve noticed that this yarn is wool-like. Do you have any recs for wool-like yarn? Thanks in advance! You’re a lifesaver.

I’ve never crocheted a tam before, and I don’t have much experience with wool (or wool-like) yarn. But it seems like the trick is to increase enough to make it end up slouchy, then sharply decrease to create the slouch. Is this not the style of hat you’re looking for? If not, could you find a photo of the style of hat you’re wanting to create? Are you looking for something beret-like, such at the Tam O, or Tundra Tam on Ravelry? I’m a little confused as to what exactly you’re trying for, but you can help! Just either reblog to respond, or send an ask or fanmail! I’d be glad to help you figure it out!
