1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / triangle used for mounting projects on: March 09, 2012 10:39:40 AM
This is two projects into one.  I needed to mount a 'latch hook' rug that I did centuries ago LOL.  I could not find what I wanted to do. It was not until I saw towel toppers that I was inspired to finish this project. I did not want the rug to be on the floor otherwise would get stepped on.

I mounted latch hook rug using crochet triangle


The triangle mesh:



The triangle pattern, for this project  12  clusters for row 1, 7, 5, 3, 2, 1 accordingly:

the stitch chart



I also had done a trim of single crochet for row one then did Increase of 5 single crochet into each foundation chain.
   

The latch hook is from a kit, i believe caron.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Booties Tutorial on: March 02, 2011 01:53:13 PM
knitted baby booties


1) Knit 2 panels sized 4.5 x 4.5 inches. This fits for a 4month old. Adjust size for the accordingly to the baby's foot length, measuring from (heel to toe) plus seam allowance and room (for movement).   pic has four, but I only needed two.


2) TOE: on the REVERSE SIDE, draw yarn to one end picking up loops (of the ending chain stitch), as shown below


   at the end, pull to tighten, this will make a round, see below:


3) FRONT: fold a panel evenly, so it's 2.25inches in height( or half the width of panel).
    on REVERSE SIDE,  sew(bind using ladder stitch)  from the toe to the ankle, about 2/3 of length of panel or measure (1/2 the circumference of ankle +room(so it's not tight) ) for the OPENING of the babies ankle, then subtract that from length of panel
     so now it should look like a canoe



4) Heel:
     on REVERSE SIDE, sew(ladder stitch) the entire width (should be approx 2.25 inches), from bottom to top.

5) LACE/TIE
    Use yarn of a different color about 12inches, recommend using contrasting color yarn for decorative .
   on the Correct side, use a hemming stitch, starting from the center top front, working all around until reaching center front.


here's the happy customer. I made these for his baptism.

that last chain is the step stitch  but not a stitch to consider for length
if you need 10 stitches , then do 10+1 chain stitch at the end of row

add markers by a contrasting yarn like red or yellow that can pulled out later, say for every 20 stitches ,it's easier to recount to keep track
