I am about to venture onto crocheting. Avid knitter but new to this.

I heard a pattern called Lumberjack only has singles, and doubles...if correct does anyone know of this pattern?

HERE (http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?p=818270#post818270) is a pattern from crochetville.org which is called Lumberjack and looks to use only double crochet stitches. It's pretty cool looking!

I have a few patterns that require only basic crochet stitches offered on my website that you might want to take a look at. The woven stitch (http://www.hookedonneedles.com/2010/01/learn-to-crochet-woven-stitch-video.html) makes a great afghan and only uses single crochet and chain stitch. And the ripple stitch (http://www.hookedonneedles.com/2008/06/how-to-crochet-ripple-stitch.html) uses only single and double and also makes a great afghan.

There are lots of other patterns offered free out there too. Have fun picking the one you are going to try!

As I am not a great crocheter {yet}...singles and doubles, the trouble I have is where to start the next stitch after you turn the chain to start or when a new row to start.

There are various patterns with the lumberjack name, however they all have different stitch combinations. Singles, doubles,trebles, crabs, and the like.

Here is a whole mile long list of patterns where you might find something you like and give you confidence to complete.

... but I figured someone had to post a link to the Monty Python Lumberjack skit.

:roflhard:

:think:
What do you suppose such and Afghan would sing?

I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day.

I cut down breeze, I fluff and plump,
I warm the newly weds,
I cro-chet women's clothing
and hang across the bed.

:shrug: First draft for a singing afghan.
