1  Re: Keeping it Simple.. in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Zoena on: September 19, 2007 08:31:29 PM
It's really actually a very versatile stitch too. I call it the "stockinette stitch of crochet." With a larger hook it can be soft and smooth. However, with a smaller hook and a double strand I made a purse that stands up on its own:

It's nice and tight and doesn't leave a lot of holes, very smooth and flat, and there isn't really a right and wrong side to the fabric, so it's great for double sided things like scarves. Because it's a tight stitch it can also be very sculptural with the right hook and yarn.

In any case, I'll post the scarf once it's done, it's slow work, the silk is a bit slippery and if I'm going to spend that much on premium yarn I want to take my time and not split it. (also I tend to work on 6-10 projects at once, continually rotating through whichever one I feel like working on at the moment)

Aww, that's too bad sunday, I think you were the only one doing it with me  Cry

And the bunny is kinda loosely based on the lavender bunny.. Although everything I make kind of is. That was the project that taught me amigurimi theory. This would probably be a completely different pattern because all the stitch numbers are different, but still based on it. The legs especially are my own invention, I made the feet and then sewed the cuffs of the pants to the feet, then made the overalls, stuffing the legs and sewing the overalls to the body, so both at the cuffs and the bib of the overalls it looks like a separate piece, like clothes.

Oh and if you want to see my old bunny from the lavender bnunny pattern:

Fopr this week currently working on a monkey:
