FREE Crochet Product Cheat Sheet

If you’re anything like me, more times than not, you start many projects at once. I tend to keep the projects organized and together, however, what I neglect to do is write down what hook size I was using. This one gets me every time and I will accidentally grab the wrong size hook. Once I start crocheting, I realize that the project is now coming out differently, which is when I notice my mistake.
If I had this handy cheat sheet, that never would have happened.

Do you like the head and body in one piece?

Do you prefer to crochet the head and body in one piece?

Well you’re not alone. I love crocheting those pieces together especially when I’m using chenille yarn. The less sewing that I need to do the better.

I like sewing the head and body together when I’m using thinner yarn, but I find with chenille yarn, it saves my room of extra yarn fuzzies if I crochet them together.

Do you have patterns that you like that you’d prefer had the head and body together?… Read the rest
