1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is your easiest knitted gift with the best effect? on: July 20, 2015 07:48:18 PM
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!

I don't have any sock-specific advice, but if that region is always too tight, once you pick up the stitches you could start knitting the stitches with needles that are one size larger.

I've mainly used buttons for phone/ipod/gps cases. Those buttons are super cute!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can I get some help with a crochet chart on: March 25, 2015 08:50:25 PM
Here are a couple good links that I found:
http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/chart_crochet.html
http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2014/11/making-sense-of-crochet-diagrams/

As far as number of chains, I think if you can figure out the repeating pattern, then just chain as many as you need to get the right (for example, if the scallop is in multiples of 6 stitches, then chain as close to 40cm as you can and end up with a multiple of 6).

Hmm, the trick will be keeping the scales flat and not pushing upwards on the curve of the shoulder (otherwise it'll look like a pinecone).
Perhaps optimizing/decreasing your hook size so that you have more smaller scales rather than fewer larger scales will help it lie flat.
