What does #-#-# in a knitting pattern mean? Answered

I found a knitting pattern I'd love to make real, but I have never knitted off of a pattern. I was able to get the bread and butter of it down, but I'm confused by the #-#-# format I'm seeing all over.  This is the pattern I am using: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/22-23-1-cashmere-dress Thanks in advance!

Cannot download patterns without putting a bug in my computer?

I have tried to download a couple of patterns and when I hit "PDF Download" and another site pops up that says to download pattern, you have to download this other program. I tried to download the program because I REALLY wanted this pattern. It really screwed up my computers- and I STILL could not download the pattern. Is there any other way to print these patterns without messing up my computer?Thank you for your help! June Hearn

Does anyone know where I can find "No-Sew Barbie Doll Clothes Patterns"?

When I was a girl, in the 1970's, my Mom found a series of patterns for making Barbie clothes that didn't require sewing. Now I have several little girls around who want lots of Barbie clothes but they can't afford the prices. It would mean a lot to me if I could find these patterns to help them make their own clothes. As I recall there were dresses, pants, tops, etc. The clothing was tied on in various ways and the items were just cut out and ready for Barbie to wear. If you happen to know where I can find these patterns, please let me know as soon as possible. I would also be interested in really simple patterns for Barbie clothes. It needs to be something that a young girl can make with little or no adult assistance.

Anyone have a tutorial, or good advice for Creating my own Crochet patterns on paper/computer?

I've been designing and crocheting my own items-sweaters, shawls, purses, backpacks, scarves, gloves etc for over 15 years now. I just never thought to write them down. I need help. If anyone knows of a free program, free template, or a free tutorial for how to put a crochet pattern down on paper, I'd be SUPER Grateful! Thanks in advance to anyone who answers!  I'd be happy to crochet for anyone who would like something.  At this point I only sell by word of mouth, which in my way of doing something is that I make the first item for whomever (usually a friend or casual acquaintence) asked me to do it-usually for free.  If someone whom That Person knows now wants the same item in a different color or texture, size, etc...that one I charge for.  I have never used someone else's pattern for sale items.  And, believe it or not, In my 25+ years of Crochet, Knitting, and all other crafting I've yet to make anything for me.  I'm my worst customer, I guess...lol. The list of things I've made for others, just for them to have, birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, baby showers, bridal showers, and a bunch of other reasons for crafting, is Super Long.  Probably in the mid 5,000's.

calculating yardage bench cushions?

I have four slabs of foam about 3" thick,  each: L 32 5/8" X W 14 5/8"  I plan to sew  box-type cushion slip-covers for each. How much yardage should I buy? I figure I should add about an extra yard for errors? Any advice in this regard would be greatly appreciated. blessings

What's a good design program for making clothing patterns?

I was looking for some time and couldn't find anything I liked. I tried google sketch up but that was poopy for what I'm trying to do. I also saw Wild Things (or something like that) but it looked like it only does like hats and stuff. It also needs to be free if at all possible. Thanks!

How do you read crease patterns?

Recently,  I saw a website by Robert J. Lang.  I really like origami,  so I looked up some of his diagrams, and, guess what?  They were all a bunch of crease patterns.  Right now those are pretty dang useless to me.  I was reading some of the entries to the site and i saw this: "A reasonable number of people now have the skill to “read” a crease pattern and fold the encoded form."  The second I saw that, I thought, "Are you mocking me?"   So, in other words, how do you "read" CP's as the great (just kidding) Robert J. Lang said?
