I saw a video from PBS channel that had the thread NOT wrapped over the left finger. I thought that would be a good way to hold yarn/thread. The show is called "knit & crochet today tv show" on pbs. It seemed the thread was just coming out of her left hand. If you bing knit & crochet, it'll get you there.

Is there a way to print the pattern without the 17 pages of junk that comes with all of them?

To member 5384561, RE: your question on how hard it is to crochet with thread. you must have the right tension on your thread, therefore that is why you wrap it around your fingers on your left hand. you control the tension with your little finger. go by an illistration in a how to book. I hold my hook between my thumb and middle finger on the flat space of the hook. I sometimes use the little finger of my right hand to control my work when it is small. I learned with thread over 60 years ago. I had to "learn" not to put tension on yarn. I hope this helps, happy hooking. GVG

I love the snowflake pattern, however, when I tried to print the pattern, all I got was her commentary on how she came up with the pattern. I did not get the pattern. This is not the first time this has happened to me. What can I do about this problem?

I have rheumatoid arthritis. I love to crochet with thread. You have two choices, Use the same pattern and make really large ones using yarn and larger hooks, or do like I did. I took duct tape and slowly wrapped it around the handles of my size 0 and smaller hooks until I had a handle that I could grasp without any pain. Once the handle of the hook was a size that was useful, the thread was no longer a problem. I Love Snowcatcher and all her Snowflake Monday patterns. Thanks for putting her out there for the rest of the crochet world to appreciate.

Hi Mary McLuckie, In 2001 I had surgery on my dominant hand and had to learn to crochet all over again. One of the hardest things for me was to hold my hooks--especially the small ones. One day, My Darling Husband and I were in Hobby Lobby looking around and he happened upon something that has really helped me out. It is made by Susan Bates and Boye. They are a blue sponge and fit on the end of your hook. Want to say the cost is around $3.00 and worth every penny! This helps give grip and better control. As far as using the smaller 'thread' type of working medium, my suggestion is try, try, try. Don't ever give up. Too many lovely patterns out there not to just give it a shot. One thing that I learned on was to start off REALLY SMALL. Sewing thread size. Once you master that size, the number 3's and 10's will look like yarn to you and regular worsted weight yarn will seem like it is gigantic. Hope this helps you and anyone else that might be having troubles with this type of crafting medium. I know it helped me.

Your snowflake design above is so beautiful. However, although I can crochet (albeit a bit rusty) with yarn...I simply cannot crochet using thread. Why is it so darn hard to crochet with thread? I would LOVE to do this snowflake pattern not to mention some beautiful doilies. I'm old-fashioned that way. My mother-in-law had her doilies and figurines all over the place. I loved the comfort of her living room with her old-fashioned decor. Is there a 'simple' way of perhaps holding the crochet needle or the thread to make these beautiful items? Thank you for any help you can give me. Mary McLuckie twstr2u@aol.com
