1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Whedonverse Swap? on: June 26, 2014 02:51:50 PM
Would anyone be interested in an all inclusive Joss Whedon swap? I know I can't get enough Buffy/Firefly...but I appreciate other Joss Whedon, too.

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Zen/Meditation Swap on: October 10, 2013 04:45:22 PM
The holidays are looming. And we all need as much peace and calm as we can get. Smiley

I wasn't thinking anything too big. Maybe 1 crafted medium and 2 smalls? Or 4 points however you like. Extras to be decided on between partners.

Would anyone be interested?

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Pirate Hat on: May 15, 2013 06:42:37 PM

Im taking part in the summer nerd games and this is my first entry. Smiley Its a pirate tricorne hat like the ones found in Limsa Lominsa in FFXIV

Just a quickie pattern if you want to make one like it! Smiley

Items You Need

Red Yarn -RHSS
Heather Grey Yarn - RHSS
G Hook
Stitch Marker (I use a little piece of contrasting yarn and just pull it out and replace it at the beginning of each row so I dont lose my place when working in the round)
Yarn Needle

I started in the center of the hat forming the "beanie" of it first. My gauge with Red Heart on a G Hook is 4st x 4st gives me one square inch. The drop on this hat is only 7"...you dont want it to come down to your eye brows before you begin the brim or it will look really odd. So the beanie portion is 22" wide and the drop is 7". Smiley

I worked in the round and did NOT slip stitch chain 1 at the end of each row. I used a stitch marker and just kept working in the circle.

The hat only uses single crochet. When I say "sc inc" it means sc two times in that one stitch. Smiley

Row 1) 6 sc in a magic loop circle. Cinch your circle closed and continue to row 2 (6)
2) sc increase in each stitch around (12)
3) *sc, sc inc* around (18)
4) *sc 2 times, sc inc* around (24)
5) *sc 3 times, sc inc* around (30)
6) *sc 4 times, sc inc* around (36)
7) sc around (35)
Cool *sc 5 times, sc inc* around (42)
9) sc around (42)
10) *sc 6 times, sc inc* around (48)
11) sc around (48)
12) *sc 7 times, sc inc* around (54)
13) sc around (54)
14) *sc 8 times, sc inc* around (60)
15) *sc 9 times, sc inc* around (66)
16) sc around (66)
17) *sc 10 times, sc inc* around (72)
18) sc around (72)
19) *sc 11 times, sc inc* around (78)
20) *sc 12 times, sc inc* around (84)
21) *sc 13 times, sc inc* around (90)
22-26) sc around (90)

That was it for the part that sits on your head...we are now continuing on to the brim. No need to fasten off ...just keep working in the round.

27) *sc 6 times, sc inc* around (102)
28) *sc 7 times, sc inc* around (114)
29) *sc 8 times, sc inc* around (126)
30) *sc 9 times, sc inc* around (138)
31) *sc 10 times, sc inc* around (150)
32) *sc 11 times, sc inc* around (162)
33) *sc 12 times, sc inc* around (174)
34) *sc 13 times, sc inc* around (186)
35) sc around (186) Slip Stitch, Fasten off.

Attach Gray Yarn
36) *sc 14 times, sc inc* around (198)
37) *sc 15 times, sc inc* around (210)
38) sc around (210) Slip Stitch, Fasten off.

I made the end where I fastened off the back of the hat.

So now you have a great big floppy disk. Turn the hat inside out so that when you fold the edges up in a "tricorne hat shape" the "right side" is facing out on the sides.

Like this...

I figured it is more important that the sides that everyone can see are the right side of the crochet fabric, as opposed to the top of the hat...fewer people will see that.

After flipping it "inside out" just shape it however want it to look.

Its about personal preference. I did not want my edges to be too sharply folded. I like the rounded corners. Once you find how you want it to look then just use the complimentary yarn, cut a few strands and sew it to keep it that shape.

When you are sewing the outside just enter a stitch and take the working yarn into a hole that is above and on stitch to the right or left. Just like you are cross-stitching. This will make the stitching nearly impossible to see. I learned this by "accident". I sewed the red and then I sewed a few strands through the gray also.

Finished product! Smiley

I hope this made sense. Smiley Take care and arrrrr.

I made this for a swap and it went to Helena Puck. It was a "favorite character swap"

I started by making the panel. Its tunisian crochet. Then I set the panel and I sewed it on to a drawstring backpack.

Here is a picture of the finished bag.

Here is the panel before I put it on the bag.
