1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Baby blanket... now I only need the baby to go in it! on: May 26, 2011 12:08:07 AM
Thank you! I say just make baby stuff and save it for later. Wink I figured green and yellow were pretty gender neutral and "safe". Lol. I wanted him to be able to be swaddled in it as a baby, then wrapped up as a toddler in it.

The scalloped edges are so adorable, you can make more chain stitches to make them more pronounced I think. Thanks for the comment! Smiley
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby blanket... now I only need the baby to go in it! on: May 25, 2011 11:06:04 PM
Finished my first "large" project! Ok, so my little brother is having a baby and everyone has been really odd about it. He's 18, and not married to the mother. But I am seeing it as, HEY i'm going to be a tante again! So whenever I found out, the next day I went to the store and bought some yarn and started working on a blanket. I wanted it to be pretty big so he can grow into it. Finished size is 36 1/2 in by 44 in.
   
Bernat Softee Baby in Mint and Lemon. 2 skeins of each color were used, with a little bit left over of both. I used a Boyle I/9-5.50MM hook.

All laid out.


Up close of the stitches and the colors. Hey look, a toe!


Scalloped edge (I don't know how to do anything other than this honestly....)



The "pattern" is:

132 ch st. Turn. Ch 3, dc into 4th ch from hook and dc in each st across.
With color A, work 5 rows of dc. Turn. Ch 3, dc into 4th ch from hook and dc in each st across.
With color B, work 3 rows of dc. Turn. Ch 3, dc into 4th ch from hook and dc in each st across.
With color A, work 8 rows of dc. Turn. Ch 3, dc into 4th ch from hook and dc in each st across.
With color B, work 6 rows of dc. Turn. Ch 3, dc into 4th ch from hook and dc in each st across.

Repeat until desired length.


I think I shall go ice my wrists now... Thank you DustyChica for the crocheting pattern slang.

I might have to make one. I have far to many iPhone cases already! Darn the cuteness. A hot dog might work too, oh the possibilities.

Oh my goodness. I might have to make a pair of these for my nephew... Do you have a pattern for it by chance? How long did they take you?

I burned it, and after having a sneezing fit, was able to smell it. It didn't smell like anything, but it melted like plastic would have.

So it's a synthetic. Thanks! Smiley

Thanks! I will. I've got 3 different projects going right now. And doing my afghan bores me after a few rows.

Lol. Missouri is misery right now.

Since you introduced yourself, it should count. Heh.

I would actually love to do that, i'm slightly scared of a swap myself. I'm a college student, so I don't have much time on my hands for a time restraint.



Welcome! This place will cause loads of inspiration. Smiley

My name is Tiffany, i'm a full time college student and part time peer tutor in Missouri. Hopefully my paycheck will cover my crafty needs. . .

I normally work with clay, my sketchbook, and paints, however I have gotten into sewing recently. Kidnapped my mom's sewing machine actually. >.> I crochet as well, but I don't knit. Tried it, it isn't for me. I can't figure out the needles for some reason. I'm currently working on an afghan for my unborn baby niece/nephew, and will probably end up sewing a lot for said baby.

Anything else, you can just ask me. ^_^

I don't know where I got it, or what it is. It feels like canvas, but I can see through it, and it's a bit rougher feeling. I really want to use this in a skirt, but i'm pretty sure it's to thick.


Close up of texture.


Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Smiley
