Question for all you crochet experts here--

If I want to make a giant in the round blanket without a pattern do I just keep enlarging the same as the first few rounds? Like if I get to row 22 do I crochet two in the first crochet and then one crochet in the next 21?

I don't crochet, but it can't be too dissimilar to knitting... And it's basically maths too (physics student ahoy!)
I think your method will work!

Your circumference (distance around the circle,) is proportional to pi and the radius (distance in to the middle): so every time the radius doubles, your circumference should double also.
In knitting, the easiest way to achieve this is to double the number of stitches every time your row count doubles. So, row 2 had double the number of stitches of row 1... Row 4 has double the number of stitches of row 2... Row 8 had double the number of stitches of row 4...
(( you don't need to actually do all the increases in the doubling row (row 2, 4, 8, 16, 32) - you just need to have increased that much between doubling rows))

So... Talking specifically about your question: your method has you doing 22 stitches on row 22, then increases one per row to 44 stitches on row 44 (44 being the double of 22) which means both your stitch count.and your row number have doubled Smiley

Hurrah!

If you want to double check, look up some free circular patterns on ravellery and see how they worked the increases

Fab pokecards! What do you use to carve stamps from? The stuff that came in the cheapo-kit I brought was great, but I can't find it anywhere now and the art stores only seem to have stuff for stamping with paint (not ink) Sad



Seeuudee - I didn't know you lead a Brownie troop! That's so awesome! I used to be a Brownie (sixer of the Imps too!) and I seriously hero-worshipped our Snowy Owl  Grin

Patty - what a cool party - I love the make-your-own bookmarks especially!

Jennie - thanks! There were 3 puzzles - a number code based on the digits of e (the same as the stripes on Tom's hat), a complete the quote rhyming couplet, and a Japanese style picross puzzle that revealed a heart when filled in - it was fun, Tom answered then over breakfast in bed Smiley

Eventually they'll be a blanket - all different stitch patterns in yarn left over from other projects... But it's a long way off - I need about 180 squares, I currently have air 35! They are the perfect project for at work as they are small and I don't need to look at the pattern after the first few rows, but I'm coming to the bottom of my stash of appropriate weight yarn ends !

Project: mac n cheese

Wunderniece stayed with me at the weekend - which is great but she firmly communicated to me that she is the fussiest eater on the planet. I tried to keep most of what we are vegan so we could eat together but since she hates anything with "weird" ingredients or any actual flavor... I gave in and made up a batch of mac & cheese! We shared a salad and she at least tried a little of the mushroom pasts.I had Smiley
I've never actually made cheese sauce before, but I basically just melted 30g of butter, added a pint of milk, then about 400g grated cheese (about 3/4 cheese and 1/4 parmesan). Sprinkled in a little plain flour until it thickened, then poured that over cooked macaroni.  Topped with another handful each of cheddar, parmesan & mozzarella - Baked for about an hour on low to crisp the top Smiley
I must have listened well and created something  entirely tasteless since she ate 2 portions (tom put away a fair bit too, but he'd added some lee n perrins sauce!)

I got Tom a voucher for a date at an escape room game - I decided to make a kind of reverse escape room : a break in (to the card!) - each envelope is opened by a puzzle, and reveals another envelope with another puzzle...

There's a new Floo challenge up on the board!

As standard, you have until midnight mistress Jennie time (central time?? Pffft, I live next door to the Greenwich time line and anything beyond that just confuses me!) to hand in projects for the old prompt Smiley

Oh, and happy Valentine's day to all you lovely Hogwartians! Xxx
