131  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: is it me or the pattern with the problem? (slouchy beret pattern) on: July 30, 2010 04:27:47 PM
I have the opposite problem - most of the slouchy hats I've tried to make usually come out too big to fit my head.

Anyway, I would suggest that instead of starting your decreases at Round 11, work 3 or 4 more rounds even (like Rounds 9-10) before you start your decreases. That way you can just decrease till it's the perfect size for your head, and you won't lose all of the slouchiness. Smiley

Hope I helped.
132  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crocheting with unconventional materials on: July 30, 2010 04:23:43 PM
I've crocheted with plastic lanyard lacing, which is fairly cheap and comes in a large variety of colors, and it will maintain its transparency but it's really difficult to work with if you're not using a large hook. (The smallest hook I used was an I/5.5mm.) If you don't mind using a bigger hook though then it works fine.

I've crocheted with plarn, wire, t-shirt yarn (an old t-shirt cut into strips), sewing thread, ribbon (both the kind made from fabric and the kind made for wrapping gifts), embroidery floss, and elastic. Though for the most part I like to stick to plain old yarn, it's so much easier to work with. Tongue

If you're into crochet/knitting/weaving/other fiber arts, and if your sweaters are made of yarn, you can always unravel them and use the yarn to make other stuff.
