I suppose u could just put a piece if yarn down the part showing and that would define your part too but as long as your wig cap is the same color I haven't seen that it makes that much of a difference.
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Any tips on how to increase size of a small Amigurumi from 7 inches to 3 feet? on: June 15, 2012 02:40:04 AM
I just upsized a mlp for my daughter and I found it helped to make a small part like a leg for sizing judge but I added increased evenly into every row and for every row I added an extra 3 rows and she came out about 18 in and the original pattern was for 3 in. The bulkier yarn I tried and it was hard to do small stitches and she just looked funny.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Eeyore ears for a hooded blanket?? on: January 16, 2012 01:52:29 AM
My lil oneloves retire and I made rabbit ears using 2 seperate pieces 2 pink that I jist made by doing a ch of 1 next row increase it til I got to a center I liked then evenly decreased it back down, same with bluish color in 2 pieces for the back then I crocheted the pieces together a row inward instead of on the edge to give it that 3G inner ear look and did one more row at the top (it was a thick row) to make attaching easier and give it the droop look.
For the tail ch like 3 or four (size approp for your blanket) and connect in a circle crochet in the round til you have a good length then taper it to flat increase evenly by one or two and make a few more rows of six or seven across this is actually the top make a separate "button" for the tack at the bottom make a separate ch of about 20ish in light pink tie it in a bow and attach it for my poof at the bottom I used a wool and cut several little strips I didnt sew it flat but instead attached a few pieces of the wool in each stitch and when I got all the way around the center was covered and I had a cute tail.

Sorry this is so log just trying to give the best directions possible Smiley

I Am currently having away at a princess themed Tunisian blanket with a hideous back (too far in to go back now) but on YouTube there is woman who's username is groundhogpeggy and she has a few videos on reversible back crochet using charts that is not Tunisian but so beautiful I am trying to figure it out for my next gift maybe she can help you as well

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / A project in the making (need idea help) on: January 16, 2012 01:08:09 AM
I have this blanket starting princess here is a photo of aurora's square
Each square is roughly going to be 14" across by 24" up I am doing 6 squares and a back piece my question was how to tie it all together, I was thing of doing loops around each square and loops in that shape on the back and maybe braiding the front and back together like a mile a minute or just sew or crochet through both while I'm going to attach or what? And base colors for a border or any other cool ideas are helpful this is my first huge project with no pattern whatsoever
