511  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I'm worried about size on: August 07, 2007 05:49:54 AM
I'm starting a jacket that's done of crocheted flowers put together. The pattern I'm following says same size fits all, but I'm a bit worried because I'm kinda big. Usually when I buy shirts that button on the front I always have to wear them open, over a tank top, even if it's the large size, so I'm worried that the jacket will gap between the front buttons. At the same time, I don't think extra flowers would fit well, so should I:

1) start assembling the flowers now to compare while I work, or leave that to when I have all them crocheted?
2) try to make some half-flowers to add some inches on the front?
3) just surround everything with sc or some other stitch and add rows as needed?

I really don't want a too tight fit, or something that looks like a longer bolero.
Thanks already.  Roll Eyes

Have you seen diagonal crochet? I've worked it with variegated yarn and it worked pretty well. I followed the instructions on this site: http://mysite.verizon.net/vze8mnnp/diag.html

514  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / my first project ever - fbb on: August 06, 2007 05:56:55 AM
Hello, everybody. This is the first time I'm writing and the first time I made anything wearable.
I asked my mother to teach me how to crochet during Carnival, when I was extremely bored, and she taught me how to dc, but refused to teach anything else until I was good at that by her standards. Then I googled crochet and taught myself the other stitches while she was out. I'm not sure she forgave me that yet... Wink
Anyway, I made a few amigurumis, let it for a few months and just decided to try again.
This time I made a FBB for my mother, after unraveling everything a few times. I'm not too pleased with the handles (one longer than the other, and the shorter one is a bit wider - I'll buy handles for the next one), and the stitches to sew the lining are all uneven, but overall I think it worked.
Pics are here: http://pics.livejournal.com/colorlessblue/gallery/0001h7bk
You can't see on the pics, but the thread is brown cotton with red shiny viscose, and it shines a bit on the sun. The flowers were crocheted using satin ribbon.
