CLF Flamie Award Best Instructional Technical Book for 2010
Dear Doris, I purchased your book Crochet Lace Innovations.. I was so encouraged by your clear presentation of broomstick lace that I decided to try Melisande Vest. I hit a snag when I got to C row 2. I can’t get past the C Inc-corner. Can you help?
Hey En, Thanks for your interest in this design. I do not give pattern support on this blog. Please join me and the posse at Ravelry.com and post your questions on the forum dedicated to my designs, Doris Chan: Everyday Crochet. If you are not already on Ravelry, it is a free site and it’s where we play! See you there.
I have crocheted for many years and would very much like to do your “Zen jacket” I just can’t seem to get the instructions and want to know if there is a book that features this pattern with more visual illustration. I consider myself a solid intermediate to experienced at skill but once in awhile (like with this one) I just don’t get it. Thanks for any help.
Thanks for your interest in this design. As I have said, I do not give pattern support here on this blog. Please join us at Ravelry.com and we will get you sorted out.
I love your designs! I can’t tell you how many of your free patterns I’ve printed and want to make! You design lovely apparel. Thanks for the free patterns.
You’re my favorite designer. Your instructions are so clear and easy to follow. Started right back into crochet after 4 procedures on my right wrist this spring. Before that all I was doing was baby hats for the hospital. Made one top when I was 22. Now 53 you have inspired me to create sweaters. I made your soft serve in June as a store sample. I am 99% finished with your September Morn. Now I’m drooling over all your books and collecting your patterns across the net. Lipstick and a skirt for my daughter are on the list of Next. Thank you so much.
I love your work, I only hope that I can do one or two of these as well as you have done them. There are a couple of items I would like to try, but do not know which book to buy. Thanks for what you do!! Connie
The mailman just delivered your latest book to my door! Lace wonderful lace! Beautiful
Hi, I love your 53 Squared Off crocheted blanket. Could you tell me how to find the pattern?
Hi Doris! Love your designs and was wondering when your pattern book for your seamless pants was coming out?
I am trying to get a copy in the UK of Amazing Crochet Lace at a reasonable price but not having much luck. Any chance of a reprint?
Amazing Crochet Lace is in a second printing, so copies are available. I don’t understand why the prices are so high, even on-line. I’ll look into it.
Hi, I was wondering if there was any news on this or another printing if the second run is sold out. Thanks in advance
Hello Doris, I’m trying to assemble the Callisto Top from your book Convertible crochet, but I have come to a stop as I can’t make out what your instructions mean on page 27, ‘carina minor pent:last round, round 5: ch 1, sc in the beginning sp; *ch 4 (or join), sc in the next ch-4 sp; (no ch 4 here) ….this last bit “(no ch 4 here)” – what does it mean? I’ve been trying to ignore this inormation, as I don’t know what to do with it. Thanks
Hey Barbara, I don’t give pattern support here on this blog. Please join us at Ravelry.com and post your questions about Callisto on the forum dedicated to my designs, Doris Chan Crochet. The friendly posse there will be along with answers and cheers.
on etsy someone sells the pattern of a top which is clearly cats craddle. Not the old one but the newer one V.2 with the harts, and also offers the pattern in different sizes for about 7 dollar.
Thats not allowed right???!!
