3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Tunisian Crochet - Problem with Squares on: June 15, 2012 05:57:16 AM
Hello everyone!

I have a question regarding Tunisian Crochet. I've wanted to play around with it and I made this pattern:
http://www.haveyoueverpickedacarrot.com/2010/11/its-bird-its-planeno-its-super-mushroom.html

Ok its not actually a pattern, but from what I read about this stitch, it should be more square than simple sc.
So the pattern is 18 stitches wide and 18 rows high. but it doesnt come out nearly square. (Its about 10 cm wide and 14 cm tall)
So the question is: did I do it wrong or is this the way it is?
Do you think I crocheted too tightly?

Thanks for your help!
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Polar Bear pattern on: October 01, 2011 04:55:21 AM
Hallo everyone!
I hope you can help me.
My sister has requested a Polar Bear as her birthday gift (10.10.) but for the life of me I cant find a decent bear pattern on the web. Id like to make a small baby bear, which by itself is no problem, except the bear should look more like a real bear then like a Teddy bear. It should also be a free pattern, as I dont own a credit card, which makes paying for stuff online near to completely impossible.
I would be ever so grateful if you could help me out!

I was wondering the same...
I noticed that my local store has a special section for baby yarns. They seem to be softer then the others, but the color selection seems to focus on pastels only ^^.
I personally would be careful to check what kind of dye and other chemicals are used in the yarn.

How about a scarf? I think one of Twinkie Chan`s cupcake scarfs or a ginger-bread-man scarf would be awesome!

That explains a lot! My guess is, that you have to yarn over, pull through, yarn over a couple of times until you have the required amount of strings (I counted 10 for the first stitch 2nd row). Is the foundation square done with the same stitch?

Maria`s suggestions are very good Smiley

But if you have your stitches down (the most common ones are chains, slip stitches, single, halfdouble and double crochets) you can make anything you want. The most important thing now is practice. What ever you want to do, its important that your stitches are even, not too tight, not too loose.

I started with flowers. they are fairly easy and fast to make, and you get very different results depending on the yarn you use. It also helped me to learn to follow a pattern and count my stitches.

Oh and dont crochet in black at the beginning. it makes the stitches really hard to see (or maybe thats just me ^^)

Good luck!
