Thanks so much!!!  I wasn't sure if there was some crocheting secret I wasn't in on.  Lol- I think I try to make things more complicated then they need to be!

I am on Ravelry- have been for years.  But I always come to Craftster first.  I generally just look for patterns on Ravelry.  That's where I bought the kids pattern  Grin  I think I will swing over there to see what I can find!

Have you tried Ravelry?  There's also an issue of Crochet World (I believe) that's out that has lots of baby patterns in it! I'm pretty sure there's bootie patterns on the Red Heart website.  I'm not sure on the sleeper sack- I've never made one before.  My own little smoosh hated to be swaddled up  Cheesy
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Sizing up/down hats on: October 24, 2011 08:37:07 AM
Just wondering if anyone has any tips or calculations or magic on sizing up and down hats.  I know that using different sizes of yarn will change the size of the hat due to the guage.  But what if I want to use the same yarn?  Specifically, I have an awesome pattern for stocking hats- but the largest size I have it in is 6-18 months.  I'd like to make the same hat in youth and adults sizes.   Cheesy  I'm fairly proficient at crocheting.  I'm even really good at math.  But I can't seem to change up patterns.  It's like a mental block!!!!  I could spend countless hours doing some trial and error.  But I know there's got to be some science to this I can apply!

Thanks so much!!!!!!  Grin

I would definitely start with a basic beanie.  I know Ravelry has bunch of them- or you can even check the yarn company websites.  Just find one for the size head you're warming  Wink  You can even try your hand at a baby beanie first just to get the hang of it- they're quick to make and you can find a home for it somewhere- dolls can wear them, you can donate it, etc.

Hmm- didn't think about that with the Sugar and Cream yarn- cheapy Super Saver it is!!!!! 

I've done the finger chain thingy- I'll have to keep that as Plan #2.  They'll probably like that just as much.  Plus the meeting is only an hour- and they HAVE to have snack- so I'm not sure what kind of time I'll be given.  I guess if they really like it- it will go more than one week.  The girls are kinda excited- my daughter is always coming in with things I've made her.  I think they think they'll be making fingerless gloves and hats too.

I learned when I was 4- which absolutely blows my mind now!  How my mom taught me- I have no idea.  And the first thing I made was a Barbie purse.  I've been trying on and off for a few years with my daughter- but she's a very active kid.  I was always 'give me a book, I'm good to go'.

Now is finger knitting different than finger crocheting?Huh?

Thanks for all the help!   Grin
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Teaching Crochet to Girl Scout Daisies on: January 25, 2011 06:26:24 AM
I know there's already a few threads about teaching crochet, but I was wondering if anyone ever taught it to Girl Scouts to earn a badge?  My daughter is a Daisy- so they are Kindergartener and First Graders- little'uns!  I was wondering what the best project would be.  I want to put together a little kit for them to take home- including a larger sized hook and some yarn, I'm thinking the Sugar and Cream (good color choice, inexpensive, and durable).  If anyone has done this, what was your plan of attack?  I figure just chains and single crochet- but then I think the kit is limited to making a washcloth.  I guess that's not the worst thing in the world- at least they can use it- even as a doll blanket  Grin

I love the Bernat Softee Chunky (not the baby version though).  It's pretty chunky- but comes in some great colors, stays soft, and is fairly cheap (about $3 a skein).  I use it to make hats and baby blankets all the time.

Those are awesome!  I'd love a tute if you could put one together.  I'm not so good at figuring things out  Sad
