1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / What do they want me to USE? on: July 10, 2012 05:30:02 PM
So, I found this vintage baby frock pattern online:
http://www.antiquecrochetpatterns.com/baby-frock.html

I want to give it a go, but I can't figure out what size hook and what sort of yarn they want me to use for it. Any ideas?

Thanks guys!

I was trying out some new things I learned and wanted to make a Pokemon, so I decided on bulbasaur -- he's one of my favorites and #001 so I thought it would be appropriate. Cheesy

I'd like to make many more Pokemon in the future!

I made up the pattern by myself. :]

I'm really impressed by the method you used, haha. And how nice and straight and even everything looks. Cheesy

(Also, that is one of my favorite color combinations, so instant win!)

Wow! I'm really struck by how neat your stitches are and how you've managed to make a crocheted beanie actually look hip. :]

Great job! I'm working on a Slytherin scarf myself in some bulkier yarn.

I actually think the colors you picked out work perfectly.

Holy cow. This is AMAZING. There are no words! It's so nice to see classy looking baby blankets. I ADORE it, agh!

I know you mentioned that other crocheted projects aren't appealing to you, but perhaps some smaller scale ones would just be something nice to show off and perhaps give away while simultaneously forcing you to learn new stitches?

Blankets are fun but take a long time, but maybe a baby blanket would provide the practice necessary in a shorter time span? Scarves with complicated patterns, etc.

And seeking out more complicated patterns for amigurumi, too, obviously. They're out there. :] I suggest thinking of animals that have shapes that wouldn't be very well represented in "balls" and then searching.

I completely agree with the pinning thing -- it's made a huge difference in how I get my pieces to connect in the end -- especially on projects that have a lot of markings or features sewn on after the main body parts are done. Placing the legs and arms on symmetrically has also been positively affected, haha. Shocked)

Oh gosh. This is so beautiful. It's almost unreal.

This is excellent! He looks just like the real (er, you know what I mean) thing. I am on a Pokemon crocheting kick myself right now so I appreciate seeing one so well done. Smiley
