21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Doilies shouldn't curl...right? on: February 11, 2011 06:13:57 PM
I didn't think they would.  Undecided They're supposed to lay flat the whole time, right?

I'm looking at another doily and trying to copy, and I think you're right, not enough chains. I guessed more at the amount of chains, so frogging it is!

Thanks so much for your help!  Grin

It looks like the toe has two separate instructions. One is for the toe itself, and then it tells you to fasten off. Working through stitching around sole, work as many sc around as there are hdc on lower edge of slipper, plus 10 sc for center front. seems like you're doing a border around the entire slipper before you add the sole. So each hdc of the previous round gets one sc, and the toe gets 10.

For the final round instructions, you'll be sc-ing the top and sole pieces together. In my experience, I've never single crocheted pieces together like this, only slip stitched and sewn, so I'm not sure about the final product, but they're basically substituting sewing it together for single crocheting it together.

At least that's what I took it to mean! Hope it helps.
23  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Doilies shouldn't curl...right? on: February 11, 2011 03:52:44 PM
Hello all, I really hope you can help me! I've been wanting to make a doily for a while, but have been more interested in reverse engineering one. I found one and started crocheting it, and everything was going fine until:

it curled. Somehow I don't think in progress doilies are supposed to do that. So I came up with a few possibilities of why, but am not sure which one works. I don't really want to frog it, but I know I have a tight tension, I might not have put enough chain stitches in between or I need to go up a hook size. I also thought about finishing and when I block and starch it it'll flatten out, but I don't have experience with doilies to know.

Can you guys help me? Huh (Oh there's another option: I'm going to test the pattern and was going to do so with a larger size hook and some DK cotton. Maybe if I do it that way I can find the problem?) Sorry if this is a lot of information; my crochet mojo hasn't been the best lately.  Undecided (And thanks in advance.)

I love the addition of the handle, so it's like a sleeve purse. The skulls and aqua is beautiful!
