11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: i need help with symbol interpretation on a european chart for a flower bole on: March 03, 2007 04:57:51 PM
I think you're right, Rina. 

I just ignored the little ring in the center because I had no clue what it was for Smiley  But, yeah, 16 is too many to begin.  You could do 8, join in a loop, then work 16 sc into that loop. 

Then the two half clusters in the two single crochets would eliminate the skipping stitches between the clusters. 

Ta da!  I think we've done it . . .

On a related note--how many craftsters does it take to figure out a pattern diagram?  Roll Eyes

Okay, here's what I think the chart works out to in text:

Chain 16.  Join with sl st to form loop.

Ch 5 (counts as first quadruple/double treble  see this link for how to do this stitch  http://www.weirdmirror.org/instruction/trqu.htm).  *Yarn over 3 times and insert hook into next stitch, yarn over and draw loop through stitch.  (Yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice more.  Repeat from * twice  more in same stitch. Yo and draw through all loops on hook.  Bobble/Puff/Popcorn completed.

Ch 4.  Skip next stitch in round one (base chain of 16).  *Yarn over 3 times and insert hook into next stitch, yarn over and draw loop through stitch.  (Yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice more.  Repeat from * three times more in same stitch. Yo and draw through all loops on hook. Second bobble completed.

Repeat the last step 6 more times for a total of 8 petals.  Ch 4 and join to first bobble with slip stitch and finish off.  One flower completed.

I'm not sure how you join them together as you go or what the bit charted between the full and half circles represents.  I've never made anything like this before.  But hopefully this helps.

Beautiful, as usual. 
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP! How do you measure circular needles? on: February 19, 2007 06:42:05 AM
I think it would be better to go on the smaller side, too.  You can scrunch your stitches together on a shorter needle, but if your needle is too big, you won't be able to stretch the stitches out enough to join in the round.  In other words, you can more easily knit larger circumferences on shorter needles (within reason) than you can knit smaller circumferences on longer needles.

I hope that makes sense and that whatever needles you did get will work out okay for you Smiley

Thanks so much for the tips!  I think the rubber band is the key.  It was impossible to untwist the separate strands without the entire ball rolling away and turning into a jumble of yarn.  Now i have to go try again . . .

Can you do it? Any problem?


I didn't get a chance to work on it yet (too busy shoveling snow out of part of my yard so my little dog can do his business without having snow up to his eyeballs) but I can sort of visualize how you must have done it.  You're sweet for being concerned Kiss I feel confident I can figure it out now, whenever I actually get around to it. . .

It's definitely a flower loom.  I have a couple that my husband's aunt gave me.  Once you get the hang of how to wrap the yarn around them, they're really easy to use.

This is what the flowers look like:

I've gotten them at AC Moore, Michaels and JoAnn's.  At AC Moore they were by the doll-making supplies and at the other two they were with the basic craft supplies, like pom poms and felt and pipe cleaners.

Do you have any tips or tricks on how you split the yarn?  It never occurred to me try it until reading your post, but so far I'm just ending up with a tangled mess.

Wow.  Your cardigan is gorgeous.  I love the subtle cable and the contrasting stitch on the button placket/collar.  You should definitely publish it.
