1  A "what is this stitch?" thread in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by SomethingSweet on: November 03, 2010 10:20:25 AM
So I was browsing through the Top Down Bonnet (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/top-down-bonnet-with-anime-character) completed projects on Ravelry, and I came across this one with a different finishing/edging.  I'm pretty sure I could easily find something similiar to the crocheted picot edge, but I'm a fairly inexperienced knitter, and I can't figure out what is going on with this part leading up to it that kind of looks like a rope (see arrows.) 

Can anyone help me figure out what this is and/or how I might replicate it?

P.S.  I did message the maker on Ravelry a while ago but never got any response.

2  Seeds on a strawberry hat in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by SomethingSweet on: November 23, 2009 12:19:34 PM
Hey everyone,

I'd like to make a strawberry hat like this one, and I'm hoping to get some advice from you more experienced knitters about how to do the seeds.  Since they are fairly widely-spaced, should I just carry the yellow yarn along behind, or do something like sew a knit stitch over the stitches where I want seeds to be, afterwards (as per the "fixing your mistakes" section in the first Debbie Stoller S&B book)?  What would you do?

Thank you very much!

Here's my lattice hat - it looks really great in person, and I'm super pleased with it.  Thank you for this awesome pattern!  I used I/H hooks and added one stitch to the first round to fit my head.  Awesome bathroom shots b/c I just finished it and couldn't wait to share  Tongue

4  My Bunny! With Embroidered Face! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by SomethingSweet on: July 14, 2008 11:06:36 PM
Here is my amigurumi bunny!






I made him from a free pattern on the lionbrand website (my first time using that pattern) and I love it - particularly that he's able to sit up on his own.  The only change I made was that I made the tail a little smaller.  The yarn is some leftover Vanna's Choice I had.

Also, I recently learned to embroider just so I could start making cute ami faces, and this is my first attempt!  I was so intimidated going from embroidering on a tea towel to embroidering on stuffed crochet, but it turned out better than I thought it might, and I'm pretty pleased with the result.

5  Headband and Baby Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by SomethingSweet on: May 20, 2008 10:25:50 PM
Here is a headband made from Paton's SWS in Pink Natural, which is my favorite variegated yarn ever.



And a just-finished baby blanket - the middle is a baby yarn from Bernat, and the border is Caron Simply Soft in Berry Blue.

6  Acorn Baby hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by SomethingSweet on: May 05, 2008 10:08:08 PM

No flash


With flash

The acorn baby hat came about a few weeks ago, when I was procrastinating and decided to have a go at the Post Office Hat posted by myloveasdeep, here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=143420.0, which I'd been wanting to try forever.  I used an olive green yarn I had in my stash because I had most of a skein (bought it for one leaf for something else.) 

I must have got off on my counting, because I obviously ended up with a cone instead of a flat circle.  But I kept going because I thought, hey, this is kind of cute... like an acorn!  In that spirit, when I felt I had enough for the acorn body, I switched to a rust-colored yarn I had around for the puffs, to make the "hat" of the acorn. 

Anyway, I LOVE IT!!! and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out Cheesy 

The picture above sans flash is a better representation of the colors, and then you can see the details a little bit in the second pic, with flash.

7  Red Pikmin in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by SomethingSweet on: February 09, 2008 06:11:54 PM
Here is the red pikmin I made my husband for Valentine's Day.  He's been begging me for all the colors ever since I made him a yellow one a while ago.  I used StarKat98's pattern from Craftster for this one too.  He's made from Sugar n Cream yarn in red (my first time using this yarn, and I love it!)

8  Mustard cabled hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by SomethingSweet on: December 12, 2007 07:28:33 PM
I made this hat from Rheatheylia's pattern, here, using Vanna's Choice yarn.


The pattern was really easy to follow, and it was my first time crocheting anything with cables, so I was excited at how they turned out Smiley

It turned out a little small for my head - that is, it stretches fit over my head comfortably, but then it wants to stretch back, so I had little crochet ribbing marks on my forehead after a few minutes of wearing it.  I'll have to find someone with a small head who really likes yellow to give it to, I guess Tongue

Also, (isn't this always the way of it?) I actually started this in the mustard color to get rid of some yarn from my stash, and then I had to buy a new skein to finish it.  Maybe I'll make a whooooole lot of daffodils or something next time.

10  My Yellow Pikmin in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by SomethingSweet on: November 12, 2007 03:56:21 PM
My very first amigurumi!  I used StarKat98's pattern, here.

Here he is from the front!


And from the side.  Once I attached his leaf, it made the stalk bend back like that.  I kind of wanted to just exchange the leaf for a plastic one, but my husband was all about the crochet leaf.  He thinks this project is the coolest ever, so thanks again StarKat98 for the pattern Smiley


I made him using Yarn Bee: sunkisses and Vanna's Choice: olive.
