Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What is the proper term for the stitch in which you do this: YO 3 times (4 loops on hook), insert hook into stitch and pull through (5 loops on hook). YO, pull through 2 (4 times to complete stitch).

Answer: Double Triple/Treble Crochet

The proper term for this stitch is the double triple/treble crochet. When I first discovered this stitch, I called it the quadruple stitch before I realized it was already a named stitch. It is a taller stitch version than the triple/treble crochet stitch, and it looks very nice in an open afghan.
2. What does the abbreviation "dcfP" stand for?

Answer: Double Crochet Front Post

The Double Crochet in Front Post (dcFp) stitches don't work into the actual stitch, but from the previous row's DC. This gives the pattern a raised and edgy look. This is a great stitch because it is simple but it adds texture to your work without having to do any fancy stitches.

The other stitch that goes with this stitch is the Double Crochet Back Post (dcbP). You can also make a basket-weave pattern with just FP and BP stitches.
3. When you follow these instructions, what stitch are you doing? "YO, insert hook into next stitch, draw up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, insert hook into next stitch, draw up a loop, YO, draw through 2 loops, YO, draw through remaining 3 loops on hook to complete stitch"

Answer: dc2tog

Double Crochet two together (dc2tog). This stitch allows you to decrease the row or round. This is helpful in beanies at the end so that the beanie stays snugly on your forehead instead of being too loose. This stitch can be used to form a variety of patterns.
4. You are finishing an afghan. You have decided that you want 3 rows of single crochet around the edge, but you don't want the corners to become rounded. What would you do to make the corners stay more square-liked, or pointed?

Answer: 3 sc into the corner stitches

To keep the corner shaped properly without it becoming too rounded, you could place 3 single crochet into each corner stitch instead of just 1 sc around like you are putting in the rest of the stitches. You could also put 5, or 7, or 9 etc... 3 seems to work the best so that it doesn't bow up at the edges and it continues to remain in an actual sharp corner shape. Odd numbers are the key for corners {except for 1}.
5. Where was crochet first known to be super popular, and when?

Answer: Europe, 19th Century

Crochet first became widely popular in Europe in the 19th century.
6. What pattern would the following instructions represent? "DC in next 4 st, 3dc in next st, dc in next 4 st, dc2tog over the next 2 stitches... rep pattern to end stitch"

Answer: Chevron

The Chevron pattern consists of increasing & decreasing along each row in a repetitive fashion so that it creates a very unique ripple design. The term "Chevron" means "V," so you are creating a certain number of "Vs" into your afghan by doing the increases and decreases. The increase {or bottom of the V} consists of the 3dc in one stitch, the decrease {or top of the V} consists of the dc2tog OR you could skip 2 stitches. The "dc in next # of stitches" is the length of the V that you are creating. The Chevron symbol, the "V," is an insignia that has been used in police or military uniforms to signify length of service or rank, and also heraldry, and flags.

The Aran pattern consists of various patterns put together into one afghan, often using separate "panels" and sewing them together after each panel is completed, such as using 2 panels of a cable pattern and 3 panels of a puff stitch pattern, alternating the panels so that it gives the afghan more than one unique design. The Chevron stitch could be a pattern used in the Aran afghan, though puff stitch and cables are more likely to be used to create such patterns as diamonds in the work.

The Broomstick lace is just what the name says - using a broomstick {or a broomstick lace "pen"} and drawing up loops along each row of your afghan before completing an actual stitch, then completing the row by using a single crochet through a few of the loops at a time, the amount of single crochet that you would use inside the loops is equal to the amount of loops you have on your hook. This gives the work a more lacy look without having to chain anything as you go.

Filet crochet is most often worked using a chart instead of an actual written pattern, and it can create shapes, words, pictures of animals, or even people, into the work as you go instead of embroidering colors in after the work is complete to create the image you want. Filet crochet is most often worked into doilies and bookmarks than afghans. You can use Filet crochet by using blocks & open spaces, or you can change colors to create your image.
7. If a pattern tells you to chain a multiple of 5+7, which one of the following would be a correct chain count?

Answer: 57

You would chain 57.
57-7=50
So you have chained 5, ten times. 5x10=50, 50+7=57.

You count multiples of 5, then you add the 7, to get your multiple stitch.
You wouldn't chain 5, add 7, chain 5, add 7, etc... That would be a multiple of 12, period, which is not the same as a multiple of 5+7.
8. Which one of the choices below would be the directions to the start of a hat?

Answer: Ch 3, join with ss to beg ch

When crocheting a hat/beanie, you want to start with as small of a hole as possible, which would be the Ch. 3 and join to form a ring, then you would do your normal stitch after your chain up {Ch 3, dc into ring however many times} into the ring to form the first round of the hat. Chaining 20 is not a good start for a beanie because the ring formed is too large for the beginning, but not large enough for a normal size head to be the base if you are going to decrease instead of increase.
9. Which of the following is the correct metric size for the Boye US "I" hook?

Answer: 5.50mm

Labels of the "I" hook.
Metric - 5.50mm
USA - 9/I
UK - 5

This size hook is great for worsted weight yarns, or for adding a lacy feel to a normal afghan when using thinner yarn, without having to use chains to create "holes" in the work for a lacy look.
10. Which color of yarn would you NOT want to use when testing a new pattern? {Normal shades of the colors, not light or dark of any color are instilled here}

Answer: Black

Black would be the hardest to see your stitches when working up a new pattern that you are not familiar with. Any form of dark colors is not recommended to use when testing a pattern. Most pattern examples you see are worked in lighter or more neutral colors.

The best color you could use would be white or a form of white such as peace or light tan, so that it is easy on the eyes and very easy to see where your stitches are going so that you can learn the new pattern. Avoiding dark colors when testing new patterns is ideal.
