84  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Flower Child's Sweater on: April 18, 2011 06:50:53 AM


Back of sweater



Front of Sweater with the hyperbolic flower buttons

I found a free pattern by the Double Stitch Twins on the Red Heart website called, Flower Child's Sweater. It called for Smoothie yarn. Not in my stash! I did have several balls of Red Heart Stripes. And since the pattern used several different colors, the Stripes yarn was perfect. I made a design change also. Originally, the front closures had ties. I wanted crocheted buttons instead. The way the pattern was written, both front edges had these oversized buttonholes, but the edges did not meet in the center. I added extra rows, worked just one side of buttonholes and on the other side crocheted flowers to act as the buttons. I also changed the collar. I have a 2 page article with my notes and a also a photo slideshow and a link to the original pattern. If you like, you can read it here:

86  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Turning an image into a tag? on: April 06, 2011 05:23:53 AM
Hello, This is my first post on the board, so "How you doin'?" I'm a crocheter but have a love for paper, too! I recently bought a few cds of images, like old greeting cards and such. I would like to turn some of these images into tags. I know I can print them out and use scissors or a tag punch, but I would like to actually have them look like tags when I print off multiple images on paper. Are there any tutorials or advice that that you can share with me? Is there software that can help? Can I do this in Paint? I would love to be able to add these tag sheets to my free pattern page so that everyone can enjoy them.

Here are some samples:

Using my tutorial for the yarn and a big hook, the P/11.5mm, make a dramatic statement of faith.

88  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet a Head Scarf , Doo-Rag or Chemo Cap---> with free pattern link on: April 03, 2011 06:56:09 AM



You never know when inspiration will hit. I was watching an old movie, really old ,like 1927, titled "The Unknown". A very young Joan Crawford was wearing a side-tied scarf around her head. I fell in love with the look. I re-created a version in crochet. It only takes 2.5 ounces of worsted yarn and an H/5.00 hook. I used Bernat Super Value Yarn from their Ombre line. The color was Fresh Lilac.
This would also make a nice chemo cap if done in a soft organic cotton.

Here is the pattern:

It's Bunny Rabbit Season! What better way to show your love of bunnies than by making a three piece set with a bunny face as an element?
There is a coaster, a tote done in doubled yarn with the bunny face appliqued on the front and a cute purse made with the same coaster pattern but doubled yarn and a big hook. I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn and 2 different hooks, an H/5.00mm and a K/6.5mm. Sizes are:coaster=5x7,tote=10x9, purse=7x8.5.

Make all three items on a free Saturday, that's how quickly they are made.
