1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / yoyo afghan crochet picture heavy on: June 08, 2009 10:30:20 AM









I used my scraps of vintage size 10 and knit cro-sheen thread and size 6 steel crochet hook.  I am trying to use up all my vintage scraps at the moment as we are moving and downsizing and I have way to much stuff in my craft room as the next house is only half the size of this one.  

These are made using a continuous chain method so the entire block only has 11 threads to finish.  I made color changes every round to add variety to each block.  For a size reference the individual circles are the size of a USA dime.  But I could have used any yarn as long as the hook was the right size to keep tensions correct.

please ask questions happy to answer
been asked to post a tutorial there is one on my blog that shows how to do this technique only but you can modify easily it to make scarfs and head bands and things of that sort

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / hex bonnet on: March 03, 2008 04:29:35 PM
Here are some baby bonnets I am working on.  One is using one of the hexes from the afghan I posted about earlier.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=230644.0

I have a few hexes left I think three more I plan to make a few more baby bonnets any suggestions on colors since the hexes are all cream what would be a good secondary color
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A hex skirt from a vintage blanket imag heavy on: February 28, 2008 06:27:45 PM
So I found a half done afghan bedspread weight thread ruffly 1930's blanket at a thrift store.  The original maker couldn't keep the tension even so I took it apart and sorted all the hexes and decided what I could do with the three sizes of hexes.  This is one of the things I have made thus far.  I have also made three size 5 kid shirts and one adult small shirt.  I still have enough hexes to make 1 more skirt and 1 more shirt both adult sizes.  what do you think   I am happy with it and I am happy with the skirt and think it looks real nice on.
Update
there is no lining on the skirt that is just the slip I picked for the day.  I don't like to line skirts that way I have the option of color change.  I wanted graphic patterns that day.  If I want just soft color I would have picked a pink, white, or ecru slip.










this is the large and small size there is one in between too


this is the adult shirt I made took a photo this morning
