Thank you for this Lucy. I've been trying to make a muffin cat bed but the instructions weren't clear, it got very frilly. I'm using double crochet stitches and this went frilly too, I suspect it's because the stitches are shorter than trebles or half trebles. But alternating 'plain' rows with no increasing has sorted it and I'm now producing a lovely flat, perfectly round base! Happy days!!


Thank you so much for you clear explanation. I mentioned you in my blog. I hope you don't mind!

Hello Dear Lucy
I simply LOVE your site! You make things so easy to do with your fantastic explanations. I have crocheted for many years teaching myself as a child. Never imagined I would be able to do all these wonderful things you post!
THANK YOU so very much.
Only found you a few weeks ago, but I think you have a very good heart ,and kindness beyond compare. When I have more money I will send you some more. Thank you, you have made a great difference to my life. Melanie x


Was just wondering what brand of yarn you used for this project. The colours are so pretty. The pattern is so easy thank you so much for posting it


Not sure what I'm doing wrong! But I never end with the right amount of single stitches at the end of each round! I end with singles but not the right amount for that row....would it be too much to ask how many stitches we should have on each round?
Thanks Dawn


I love your blog with all these patterns available. Your use of color is so inspirational! I learned to crochet and bought a pattern the look to see what color yarn, how much yarn and hook. Never thought about changing colors or using different colors or multiple colors. Your blog always makes me smile.


Thanks for your time And patient, from Jerusalem toda raba

Help! My flat circle looks like a Pringle at row 6-7,and by row 11 is some exotic flower, but definitely not a flat circle. I've started it twice in case I'd got it wrong first time ( maybe to much "nattter" going on), but second attempt is the same. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong? I'm using a 3.5mm hook and King Cole Splash dk. Thanks Liz x


can i use this circle for a circular sweater?

Thank you so much for your instructions, so beautifully detailed and explained, I'm a very new crochet lover but I can easily follow this. You've put a lot of work into it and I wanted you to know it's very appreciated.


Thank you this was very useful!


Hi I'm new to the site (and crochet) and I love it thanks, I'm attempting your basket liner starting with flat circle but by row 7 it's going curly? I have the correct number of stitches any suggestions?


Love your site. Have said "thank you" by buying you a coffee! And voted for you in the awards this week. Inspirational!

I love your posts. All the way from South Africa. You learn me a lot how to crochet things. Well done


Hi Lucy I am making a cushion cover using flat circle pattern but it is not flat. I have done 20 rows and it is as if there is a whole extra segment in the pattern. It has happened for both sides and the same thing happened to my sister when she did it. Will it flatten out when the two sides are crocheted together around the cushion or is there a mistake in the pattern? I love this blog!

I am from India. I tried it and it turned so beautiful. I even made a tail at the end as birds have tail and with tail it turned out very fantabulous. U r photo tutorials are great. I made one for me and now making one for my sister. U r simply marvelous lucy. God bless u for showing such great works for free.
