1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Two great knit bags, please give idea how to convert to crochet. on: November 05, 2008 06:00:46 PM

I'm a sucker for big slouchy things, hats, bags, etc. So, of course the couple I find are something I can not do. Go figure.
If someone can be so kind as to give an idea of how to convert either of these bags to crochet.
Also, please dummy it up. I'm a newbie at crochet and can not knit.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Keri Russell Sundance Hat, crochet version? on: November 04, 2008 02:10:26 PM
Has anyone made the Keri Russell Sundance Hat in crochet instead of knit?

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=post;board=79.0

It is similar to the Felicity hat knit pattern floating around here.
If someone has been that adventurous and has a crochet pattern or explanation for something similar to it, I'd be gratefull.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I have a sweater/shrug that I need a pattern for. Need brainstorming please. on: October 18, 2008 12:59:36 PM
Ok ya'll, I'm diving into a territory that I know nothing about. I limit myself to the sewing forums so excuse me if I sound naive.
 A lady came into work with the cutest sweater/bolero/shrug that looks somewhat easy to make. Trouble is I don't know what to look for, not knowing anything about yarn and such. I will post as many picture examples as I can find. She was nice enough to let me take a few pictures of the sweater but they are off my phone.
The sweater was a perfect circle with the center circle about 14 inches and the outside ring was 9 inches with the total measurement was 32 across. Where the holes for the arms are it looks like the top of the circle was slightly smaller than the bottom. (if that makes sense.) For example if the top of the flower circle was 8 inches arm hole to arm hole the bottom was 10-12 inches.
Could someone be kind enough to direct me to the pattern or something close.

This is the same manufacturer and the same knit, just different pattern.

I think this might be the pattern, but I don't know enough to tell.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Fancy dog muzzle... on: March 24, 2007 05:57:03 PM
I was scouting around the web for a dog muzzle for when we visit the vet (they don't see eye to eye) and came across this site.

Sorry I can't get the picture, must have a copyright thing.
Anyway it's this adorable Cordura fabric patterned in flowers, cherries or geometric patterns. I can't see the whole thing to figure out a pattern and I'm not that advanced of a craftster.
Does anyone have any idea or link of anything similar?

Canada has a bully breed mandatory muzzle law so I can see a need for something less nasty looking. Might be a money maker for Etsy.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Elvis wig yarns.... on: April 13, 2006 06:00:37 PM
I've come across the Elvis wig pattern and would love to try it. My problem is I'm not familiar with the brand of yarn Sirdar. Does anyone know of a US version of the yarn. I notice it uses a few types (textures) and that's what i'm interested in.  Thanks.
