1  Dress up elegant granny square clutch in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by color of your spoon on: January 19, 2010 06:35:29 PM


Frankly, I'm surprised that granny squares were used to make this elegant clutch. I want to make my own version of this clutch but I'm having trouble figuring out what type of thread/yarn used. Is a fingering yarn? Worsted yarn was way too thick and chunky while the thread was too light and thin. I even double the threads together.

2  Help making a pattern for a flatcap in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by color of your spoon on: August 08, 2009 02:58:24 AM


I've seen crochet version of flatcaps on the net but no detail pattern on how to make one. I'm using this pic as a reference to work with. I have an idea

 I thought about working the flatcap in 3 pieces- crochet an oval for the top,crochet two triangles for the sides, then attach a brim. I don't like this option because I'm not a good sewer and prefer to work in the round. Plus I don't know how I can achieve the depth I need for the hat to fit on my head.


Any suggestions? I'll appericate any help.

The bottom chart: you chain two then two sc in 2nd chain from hook. For the second row chain one and turn then two sc in each sc below,etc. I found this cute heart pattern in another Hello Kitty crochet book. ^_ ^ The pattern goes to either a cute towel or a placement. I'm not sure if I four sc then chain and continue with four sc until I chain and turn again. (For the v shape)

So there's just one piece and not two. The top circle with the opening is where the stuffing goes in. Where are rows 12-19 located at? I understand the chart up until that part (Increase of 6 then a decrease by 6).

Someone read my mind! I intended for the black ones to be either Chococat or Devil HK. I haven't made up my mind yet. I might just use the black ones for a pillow.....

Progress picture:


These things are HUGE! It's been a pain in the butt doing the granny square border (kinda regret not doing it whenever I finished a bunch in a day.) But these squares will make a nice heavy and warm throw. Fudge the border pattern but I'm happy that I got the pattern to be somewhat similiar with all the faces. Blocking these will make them look better.

Still got the flower square to do....

This also Hello Kitty related: Does anyone know what these lines mean?


Also last row with the decreases confusese me at the point where you get the v-shape in the heart.

Volia! Here are 42 faces:



I decided to use the N hook in the end. (I got used to handling it). I also did black HK faces since I wanted contrasting colors.

Thank you for the help! Those last two things were keeping me from moving me ahead in the project. Thank you for the encouragement,too. Grin

I've been testing hook sizes for my squares. I tried a N and a K. From the two, I liked the K size hook better. I found the N created stitches too wide for me plus I was having a hard time handling the hook. As for the ears, I decided to make both by joining new yarn. It was easy to control shape of ears.(Working on getting pointed ears.) I liked the perfect oval shape on right HK face. It was almost perfect but the right side is slightly bigger. I haven't been able to work on the project as I like due to testes and family issues. I can't wait till the weekend comes.
