1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: Why is search function so impossible? on: January 04, 2016 11:46:47 AM
This issue is still going on. I tried searching for Adventure Time - themed crafts, but searching the entire forum for adventure time and "adventure time" yields the exact same set of hits--posts that have those two words anywhere, not next to each other in order.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lining a crochet blank: the best way? on: January 04, 2016 11:09:53 AM
This is the way I'm planning on finishing the back of an intarsia-knit blanket:
fold/press under raw edges of fabric used for edging
Use tapestry needle and yarn to hand-stitch to the back using blanket stitch (http://www.holiday-crafts-and-creations.com/how-to-do-blanket-stitch.html)
Then run some tufting loops through it to tack it in place.

Like this:

You can make the loop just barely big enough to fit over the button so that it won't slide off accidentally.

Hmm, I seem to remember that this pattern:

Has pointy ears in it. You could probably scale them up a little for your hoodie.

These are really cute! Love your use of the faux fur (I especially love the wooly bears!)

I've made a few of these cabled bracelets, and I get lots of compliments on them. They might make a neat gift.

I've also seen some patterns for I-cord necklaces that are very cute. Like this:

Ravelry.com has tons of this kind of pattern. I recommend searching there.

Are you on ravelry? If not, sign up. I found a whole bunch of patterns just with the searches "rainbow scarf" or "hair bow"

Help, embroiderers!

I'm trying to figure out what stitch was used to make these pot holders:


I've zoomed in and in, but can't quite tell how she made each of these "squares". Any help is much appreciated!
