1  CANADA / Manitoba / Re: Any Winnipegers? on: March 08, 2005 08:07:05 AM

Hi everyone,

Yup, I'm a Winnipegger. Southdale to be exact. I've been crocheting since, oh, Dec. 2004. A real newbie. Mostly I buy my yarn at Zellers, but I'm open to more exotic locations! Some of the stores you've been mentioning sound intriguing. I must make a road trip!

Seriously, I've been crocheting scarves, baby clothes and I just started a blanket for my seven year old. Ambitious, right. I'm famous for starting stuff and never finishing! Here's to breaking bad habits.

Nice to meet y'all....

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Making a sweater pattern bigger -- is it possible? on: February 23, 2005 08:27:48 AM

Hi everyone,

I just finished crocheting a sweater for a six month old baby. The pattern, once I figured it out with the help of fellow list members  Smiley was pretty easy.

Question is: Can I adapt this pattern to a much larger size, say, a child's size 10? Do you folks have any expertise with this? Your recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,

Hi Again,

Here is the instruction for joining the sleeves:

Rows 3-13 Ch 3, *v-st in ch-1 sp; rep from * to last st; dc in top of ch-3, turn
Next Row-Join sleeves: Ch3 [v-st in next ch-1 sp of body] 10 times, *skip first dc of a sleeve [v-st in next ch-1 sp of sleeve ] 12 times, skip ch-3 of sleeve, skip next v-st of body *, [v-st in next ch-1 sp of body] 21 times; rep from * to * once more across left sleeve; [v-st in next ch-1 sp of body] 10 times, dc in top of ch-3 ; turn -- 65 v-sts
Next Row: Rep Row 3

Hope this helps,

Hi there!

It's a Red Heart pattern no. 0136-5C* the pattern is called fairytale set

Thanks for your help. I don't know if they are crocheted flat or round. I think it is supposed to be crocheted flat...but I am an amateur, so don't quote me...
thanks again

I am absolutely stumped! I am a beginning crocheter (read: virtually no experience!).

I started a Red Heart pattern for a babys sweater in V-stitches. The pattern said to work the sleeves first, so I did. Then, the body. I am at the row and stitch on the body of the sweater where I am supposed to join the sleeves. This is where it seems to fall apart (well, not literally). I cant seem to understand which part of the sleeve to join (you may laugh here, as I am so new to this, it causes me no end of merriment either) and whether I am supposed to crochet both through the body and the sleeve? The instructions say to skip the first dc of the sleeve, and then V-st in the first ch-1 space of the sleeve, but when I do this, the sleeve is separate from the body. Then the pattern says to continue in V-st for 14 more stitches. This doesn't seem to join with the body of the sweater, though. I just dont get this. Can anyone help? Has anyone ever encountered a pattern where the sleeves are worked first and then integrated in with the rest of the garment as the other pieces are worked?

Thank you,
