To get the most out of these boards, before posting a topic, we suggest:

Scrolling through past posts to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Postings are in chronological order of the date when the topic was first posted. You can also use the SEARCH function to look for past posts about your question.

If you don't see your question addressed, or if you have additional questions, post a New Topic rather than replying to an existing topic. This will increase the likelihood of getting responses to your specific question. Also, try to describe your specific question in the topic subject line rather than "New Knitter" or "Help."

The more information you can provide in your question, the better the responses.

We hope you enjoy the postings on this board and will come back to share your knowledge with others.

Some of us started posting Q&As way back when the site was relatively new. Since then there have been thousands of topics, tens of thousands of posts. Until fairly recently I would take a couple of days and go through page after page until I found the "new" post on the chance that maybe I could actually offer advice or learn something new. I'll still plow through maybe 10 pages or so, but no more than that.

The best thing was that you referenced the old topic so that it was easy to find. I've written to the webmaster to try to get a link to "new" posts, but there has been no response. I guess it takes something major like the problem we had with offensive spam a while ago to effect change.

By the way, Jan Eaton's Ripple Stitch Patterns has at least three crochet patterns that mimic F&F. This or any of the books mentioned by craftsman could be ordered on an inter-library loan if they are not in the local library.
