11  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / How to assemble pieces neatly and secure? Tips, what's the secret?! on: April 08, 2011 09:50:49 AM
I'll like to make them more secure and less wonky looking. Is there some sort of trick to attach pieces and make it look nice? Sometimes legs/arms come off or the space between the head and body look really weird. 

I found a picture tutorial forever ago but lost the link.

16  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Where did you learn to crochet? And make your own patterns? on: March 05, 2010 12:54:30 AM
I learned from the internet and very little from books.  Just experiment and make swatches of different stitches to compare with.   You eventually get the idea of how stitches will look when you crochet enough. Some people have to use patterns a bunch to understand + have it stick   and some can do it by looking at a picture (me xD).

I thought so. Thanks!

I did some swatches  if someone would like a visual!


19  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crochet through both loops, turning it inside out and looks like backloop sts? on: March 01, 2010 11:52:24 AM
I like to crochet my amigurumi through the backloops for a tight and ridged appearance.

Someone said it looked as if I crocheted through both loops and accidentally turned it inside out  thus- making it look like I did backloop stitches.

I've never heard of this before and I don't remember seeing it in my previous work.
Wondering if someone else had or if it's true.   

Yup, I'm probably going to end up doing teeny swatches but it would be nice to know if it was a well known thing or something. Maybe save the trouble trying to squeeze the hook through one loop?

Probably. I'm printing out patterns and saving it for a binder (dividers!!) .. also including the url/name in it too.  Just in case. I've always had those moments when you think you don't need something, but later you do.

And I just think it's a good idea to save your favorite patterns because you never know how long it will be available online. You might not be able to search for it easily or the website might go down or be unavailable.
