932  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Probably a silly question but asking anyway! Acrylic sweater? on: August 18, 2014 04:14:33 AM
A coworker gave me McCall's Crochet Treasury a few months ago and it has a pattern for a crocheted hoodie.
I'm in love with Red Heart's Blacklight yarn and would love to make myself a wild colored hoodie out of it for this winter.
But I've been looking around and most people seem to say not to use acrylic yarn for clothes because it's heavy and gets stiff and scratchy over time.
My question is, have any of you had those issues? I'd hate to put a lot of time into making a hoodie that would only have a couple years of use.
Also, should I just use some of the Vanna's Choice yarn I have? It's an acrylic/rayon blend. Would that be any better?
As you can probably tell, I've never made clothes, just amigurumis and a few wash cloths.

Since I lost my doll's body somewhere in my stash, I figured I may as well start on a new research project. It will help me use up some of my stash and hopefully, I'll find my doll's body somewhere along the way.

Research Project Name: Fighting Tigers Afghan (dad's suggestion)
Team: Fandom
Brief Description: I recently started an afghan that was meant to be a commission for someone but when I quoted the price, they backed out. Roll Eyes But my dad is a fan of the same college's football team so I'm just going to give it to him instead Grin I'm not sure if I'm going to make a 48 square afghan (I have 6 made) or if I'm going to make one with less squares and a crocheted tiger in the middle or just one with the tiger. I'm going to crochet up the tiger using the chart I found and use the squares I've made to see if I'm going to like it with a border of squares or if I prefer the tiger on its own. Either way, this will definitely take a month, most likely longer considering how slowly I crochet. If I don't use the squares for the afghan, I'll make myself a purse from them at a later date.

Just keep buying wool. Lots and lots of wool. You can never have enough wool!
Lol

I second this notion. Hoard it like it's gold.

Old post but if anyone else comes here looking for help: use a larger hook with two strands of yarn held together. You can use the same color or different colors for an interesting effect.

How fun would it be to make some of these to look like pizza slices and sew them up into a scarf?

Woo bringing up an old post Cheesy
As others have said, knitting is probably more common in TV shows because it's harder to fake crocheting than it is to fake knitting. Also, most people see you with yarn, they think you're knitting. I have to correct people about that all the time. Then they're confused because they think that knitting and crochet are the same thing *sigh*

Not in media but weird: I bought my mom a vintage afghan crochet kit (loved the earthy colors) but the woman on the front is holding knitting needles with crochet work hanging off them. Roll Eyes I'll have to see if she kept the box it came in (she put the yarn in her stash bag with the instructions) so I can post a pic of that.
One of the moms in the show "Breaking Amish" crochets. I've never seen the show but I found some shots of it on a blog post about crochet.
Also, don't know if anyone else had noticed, but Molly Weasley's sweater sleeves are crocheted, which is funny because she knits (and even has needles that are knitting on their own in the Burrow).
I think there was a crochet blanket in an episode of "Breaking Bad". It may have been in more than one episode but I only saw it once while channel surfing Smiley

Also, the person wondering about his name's spelling: it's Lafayette (True Blood).

You have to try to balance the stuffing. Also, you have to play with them a bit to get them to stand.
