1  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: Doll Blanket (with pattern) on: June 18, 2009 08:25:22 AM
No deadline. It's a small doll's blanket, and beginners can join too (I'm a beginner and this is my first CAL)! It uses sc (single crochet), dc (double crochet), sl st (slip stitch, ch (chain), cr st (cross stitch).


If you need help or advice, don't be afraid to ask for it!


Hook: Size H

Yarn: 3 ply Sport Weight Yarn

Stitches used: ch, sc, dc, cr st

Cross Stitch: Sk next st, dc in next st; working over dc just made, dc in skipped st.

Difficulty: EASY

ROW 1: Ch 69, sc in 2nd ch from hk and in each ch across. Ch 3, turn.

ROW 2: * Sk next st, dc in next st, dc in st just skipped [ cross stitch made ].
Rep from * across. Dc in last st. Ch 1, turn.

ROW 3: Sc in each st, ch 3, turn.

ROWS 4-47: Repeat Rows 2 and 3 alternatively.

BORDER: 6 dc in corner, sc in same sp.
(dc, ch 2, dc) around post of dc on each cross stitch row.
Sc in end of each sc row.
7 dc in corner.
Working across foundation chain...
Sc in next st, * sk next st, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next st, sk next st, sc in next st. Rep from * across.
7 dc in corner.
Working up the other side.
(dc, ch 2, dc) around post of dc on each cross stitch row.
Sc in end of each sc row.
7 dc in corner.
Working across Row 47...
Sc in next st, * sk next st, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next st, sk next st, sc in next st. Rep from * across.
Join with sl st to top of 1st dc (beg ch 3) made.

Finish Off.
2  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Cleaning up Crochet-alongs: Thoughts on organization. Feedback wanted! on: June 18, 2009 07:53:00 AM
Yeah, I think "Dormant" would be better than closed, because if it said "Closed" then many ppl would click away from it instead of on it.
"Reopened" or "Reactive" would be cool too because then you would know it was a past CAL and has been revived like a crocheted zombie.
I also like the rough idea on how many active ppl are participating.
Proposed is great too, to let you know it hasn't been started but might.

I LOVE ketchup (or catsup, whatever)!

I eat Lay's baked sour cream and onion chips dipped in ketchup.

And also, mac and cheese with ketchup in it. That one, I should think is more common, but my mom says it's REALLY unusual (she does it too).

Wow, great job! Obvious talent. Have you heard of a Double Viking Weave/ Viking Weave? The Vikings used it for the parts of their armor that touched their bare skin, because it's very flexible and not as hard on skin as chain mail.

PS: it's a jingle anklet.
