1  lap-ghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by lsn_designs on: February 27, 2005 07:02:41 PM
my finished lapghan!

i used 3 or 4 skeins of red heart supersaver in 'ocean'.  i love this colorway!
i used the 'hugs and kisses' pattern from the 'blue ribbon afghans' book, but
modified it a bit to make it more open.  i just added two more rows of the crossed
treble in each repeat.

3  arm warmer flops lead to fantastic shrug ! ~pattern added!~ in Crochet: Completed Projects by lsn_designs on: September 13, 2004 03:41:56 PM
This is my first finished project post.  After many, many failed attempts to make an arm warmer that would stay put through hours of work (as a checker at the grocery store), I finally went for a shrug.  I could not be happier  Grin with the end result.  And the pink ribbons make me feel pretty too! Wink  I have only been crocheting since January and this is the first pattern I've designed on my own.

r2 - dc in 19 st, skip 1 st, dc 1 st, skip 1 st, dc remaining 19 st. ch 4, turn (39 dc)

Joining back:
Join 2 back pieces with whipstich (wrong sides facing, back loops only) along the 9th(shortest side) row, in first 6 and last 6 stitches only. This leaves an oval shaped hole in which you can weave ribbons  Grin
You could also just whipstitch them together all the way down.

Joining sleeves to back:
Whipstitch together through all loops of top of sleeve and long sides(first row) of back

Finishing:
Reverse sc along sleeve openings.  sc evenly around edge of back and along opening of upper sleeve (the ending sleeve rows that you didnt join).

I didnt like the way the back laid, so I took some ribbon and laced up the upper sleeve and tied it shut loosely.  Leaving these rows unjoined will allow you to adjust it, if necessary.

**Please keep in mind if using my pattern, that my arms are "tiny" and my shoulders are a little broad, so you may need to adjust row lengths and amounts to fit yourself! Wink  I made the pattern up as I went by slipping the arm onto my arm to size it and decide where I needed increases and how long to make them.**

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
