Oh, I  too would love a pattern. My seven year old sister wants one of these but of all the patterns I see online, I haven't been able to find a child size one.

Thanks for sharing! It is indeed very very cute.  Cheesy

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Lelah's done! (now with PATTERN) on: May 07, 2005 05:10:05 PM
For mine I just used a cheapie yarn--Caron simply soft in plum wine.  So the whole thing cost about $3!

I love how yours came out. Can you tell me what size needles you used to make it with?

-Wendy

Thanks!  I think I just used size 7s for the whole thing.  So my gauge was totally different than the pattern, more like 5 sts per inch.  I figured that way I'd be sure it wasn't see thru at the top and it'd a little slimmer fitting.


Thank you for the info. I love that you used Carons Simply Soft. Smiley I'm on a very very super-duper tight budget (planning my wedding) and can't really afford any other yarn plus its also my favorite and use it for a lot of things so I was excited to see that your Lelah came out looking beautiful with the Simply Soft yarn.

I can't wait to get started on mine. Thanks again for the info!  Cheesy

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lining a crochet tote bag on: May 06, 2005 03:10:26 PM
I have a booklet about making crocheted bags that require no lining.. you just crochet with the regular yarn and also a matching size 10 thread. The thread doesn't stretch so your loot won't fall out.. a lot better than trying to line something - especially an odd shaped thing..

but if you really want to line it - after you are done, try laying it flat on some newspaper, trace it, cut out two of your fabric, allowing for a seam allowance and then sew it together and tack it in place here or there so it doesn't wiggle about and sew it firmly across the top.

Best of luck with your project! Post a pic when you are done??


What booklet is this? I'm interested in crocheting with yarn and thread but would like some guidance.

I personally wouldn't mind a good sized clear picture of it. I don't need the pattern as much as I'd love to have a big enough picture to see the laced edges and details. But if no picture is available, I'd like a pattern thats similar to it. I live in Florida so I can't buy the magazine  Sad , otherwise I'd have it by now but I would love to own it if even just for the pictures  Cheesy

I would love a translation of that. Its so beautiful Smiley
All I have are the pictures from their website http://www.ingelise.dk/language.3 but its not big enough for me to see how to make it.

I knit and crochet and would love it if you would send me the translation of that. Please??  Cheesy

I thought double ended hooks were for tunisian crochet lol Shows how much I know lol

I watched all your tutorials and love the cluster stitch and the twisted tunisian stitch.

I'm still learning the basic stitches but I can't wait until I get the cluster stitch down  Cheesy

Thank you for the tutorials  Smiley I wouldn't have tangled all my yarn with those double ended hooks if I had seen your post a couple weeks earlier haha

Your local library might have what you're looking for. Thats where I get most of my patterns from when I can't find them online. Its also where I browse books I'm interested in buying. Just an Idea Smiley
