11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Mega Sock Frustration on: April 28, 2015 07:38:50 PM
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!
13  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.

I found this nalbinding stitch index. Maybe this will be helpful in finding the three different stitches for her shirt.

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tips for knitting a knockoff of this cardigan from Urban Outfitters on: March 25, 2015 08:29:21 PM
I did a quick ravelry search (searched for "hooded cardigan" in knit patterns for women) and came across these patterns:
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/osprey-hooded-cardigan
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hooded-jacket---gracia

It's a little shorter than the Urban Outfitters one, but it might suit your purposes
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: rainbow blanket - yarn suggestions? on: March 25, 2015 08:24:24 PM
If you don't mind acrylic (it's basically all I knit and crochet with), Bernat Super Value has about a hundred different colors. It's a nice quality acrylic that works up nicely and is soft.

you can see all the colors here: http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/yarn-bernat-super-value-solid.html

And good luck on the project! The blanket looks lovely and playful!
19  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Newbie alert--Magic Ring Help on: February 07, 2015 07:23:31 AM
Magic ring completely stumped me for a long time. Here's the guide that finally helped me "get" it:
http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/09/demystifying-the-magic-ring/

Honestly, I think most of the instructions for magic ring get way too complicated in their description of how you hold everything. What you basically just need to do is create a loop of yarn that you first pull one stitch through, and then just create however many single crochets you need. Then just pull it tight.

Apologies, stringsandthreads, I removed the link. To clarify, though, the pattern I used was a modication of an instructables pattern and the rest I drafted on my own, not anything from you.
