Need left handed crochet help
My daughter in law wants me to make her "crochet tie strap crop top" (for the frills.com). The tutorial shows only right handed way to do the foundation half double crochet. Any advice?

Help with seaming knits together
There was a post showing how to knit pieces together without sewing them. It produced a lovely narrow column between the pieces, kind of like a "window frame" effect.

I have searched every way I can think of to find this post. It was relatively recent, probably this year.

I have a blanket with five columns all knitted and want to use this technique to join the columns.

Does anyone remember the post I'm referring to?

Knitting in Tudor England
I know there are hundreds, (thousands even?) of passionate knitters here, but do we have any really knowledgeable historians of knitting?

There was fantastic fine knitting in the Scottish Islands for centuries, and we do have evidence for Victorian times in paintings and the census lists. But do we evidence of knitting in Tudor England?

Bone or metal pins probably, for caps and hose perhaps? 4 ply maybe?

I would be grateful for any information provided.

Basic Number Theory in Knitting
As a math teacher, I have been wondering why some patterns tell you to cast on an 'uneven' number of stitches instead of simply saying 'odd'. Is this a common term in other countries (I am in the States) as we say Math and other countries say Maths?
And why say 'cast on a multiple of 2'? That's just an even number. A 'multiple of 2+1' is an odd number.
I do understand why you need to specify a 'multiple of 4' as not every even number is divisible by 4 or a multiple of 3 as those can be even or odd ....
I was just curious.

Stashbusting
My stash is getting a bit out of control and to add to that I tend to hoard items that I knit or crochet, this house is groaning with the amount of craft stuff I have. I did put a few things up for sale this week but the mittens are going to Dublin with me for the wee ones in the family.

Help regarding a diagram
I have followed this pattern and have been able to successfully make it till Row 9 but I am having problems continuing further.
In Row 9 there are in total (3+3+3+4+3+3+3) 22 stitches
And in row 10 I have to make 9 single sc and 3 sc together and then 8 single sc which means total 18 stitches.
So in Row 9 - 22 stitches
In Row 10 - 18 stitches

Thus, 4 stitches are extra. I do not know where I am going wrong. I would be glad if anyone can help.
