I've been scouring the web and craftster, but haven't found what I have in mind. I really would like to crochet an open draped cardigan that's so popular right now, but i can't seem to find one. does anybody know where i could find a free pattern for it? thanks a bunch!
for people selling yarn items (knitted or crocheted or what have you):
do you find there is a difference in people wanting to buy your items if you use home-made yarn instead of store-bought? i'm not saying you have to make your own yarn persay, but maybe purchase it from someone who specializes in making their own yarn. (i'm sorry if this is confusing)
So, my boyfriend is a muay thai fighter and has been begging me to make him some boxing glove mittens for the winter.
I just can't decide whether I can take a normal crochet mitten pattern and just modify it to look like a boxing glove (the TITLE/EVERLAST/ETC in black with a white tag on the wrist part etc etc), or that I need to find/figure-out-how-to-make a more "spot-on" looking glove...in which I have no idea how to go about doing so, although i imagine there to be more "padding" or something.
what do you guys think? would it be acceptable to just use a regular crochet mitten pattern? or would i be forever be known as the girlfriend that failed?
any ideas/past experiences/thoughts are well appreciated!
And Bonster - I only covered both the front and the back with paper for the cover and the back. I got lucky when I went to buy cards, I found these special edition cards with a white and black background instead of the usual red/blue. And yeah, the holes are where I put the crochet chain through, on both the top and bottom holes, to make like a little book.
