I want to make that!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: I give up! New here how to search for certain patterns? on: April 12, 2009 09:28:14 PM
I second Ravelry- it is amazing for finding patterns because you can find patterns from pretty much every site and ones other ravelry users have come up with.

On the main crochet page here on craftster there is a tutorial thread where they put all the patterns that have been posted in the forums. I cannot remember if there is one for fingerless gloves or not though.

Also yarn websites usually have a lot of free patterns. Lionbrand.com has a ton- (most of which can also be found on ravelry)

EEEEEEEEEE! I just love macrame. I have a ton of plants sitting around just begging to be hung and now, thanks to macrame.net, I have found my motivation.

Thank you macrame.net.

I have made a few wrist cuffs and my buddy who taught me crochet makes them all the time.  I think they are cute.

That is amazing. I cannot even wrap my head around how you did that so perfectly and intricately. Absolutely amazing.

No problem at all. I am pretty new at it myself. You should also get The Happy Hooker book. Everyone that I know who crochets pretty much taught themselves from that book.

That is really annoying. I don't think shipping should ever be based on price. It should be based on weight or size because that is how postage works. If you want to add insurance that is another thing but basic shipping costs have nothing to do with the price of an item. If you want more money raise the price of the item, don't be sneaky.

Deb- which eye site has the real shipping costs. I need to order some because all I can find around here are basic black ones.

It works the same as knitting- bigger hook equals looser stitches and bigger final product. You can test the difference between two hooks by making a swatch, just like with knitting- it can vary from person to person because of your tension and a host of other variables.

Also, most of the time you can use the same size hook (in mm) as the knitting needle recommendation. Go smaller for tighter stitches, larger for looser ones. Most worsted weight recommend 5.5 but I usually use a smaller one- I mainly make little stuffed things though.

If you aren't already, you should join ravelry.com- they have lots of great tips and free projects, but it takes about 5 days to get your membership information. Also lionbrand.com also has a ton of free patterns. You just need to sign up but it is instant.

Amazing! I was actually thinking about adapting an octopus pattern to make squidbillies but they probably wouldn't turn out this awesome. I love this show. This really needs to be completed with all the characters. If you do Krystal make sure you get her front butt just right.
