11  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / My Benjie and his sweaters (Fixed broken photo links) on: August 04, 2006 06:52:02 PM
These are just a few of the sweaters I've made for Benjie.  I've been so inspired by all of the incredible talent and amazing creativity on this board that I'm already planning a whole new wardrobe for my boy this winter.

Patterns:  Dog Sweaters To Knit & Crochet by Carol Carvalho and published by Leisure Arts.

I designed the matching hat/toque on my own...my fave part is the pom pom and the side flaps.

Bottom Left:  Houndstooth pattern that was supposed to be done in a continuous grey/maroon combination but I ran out of the grey and used the blue as an alternative.

Bottom Right:  Granny square sweater that's literally just a bunch of granny squares (2 rounds with 2 colors) sewn together.  You can't tell from the picture but I sized it a bit too big so the neck is huge on Benjie.  I rolled it up and achieved somewhat of a cowl neck...stylin' pup...yes?  LOL!

I call this his "King Of Hearts" sweater.  I used the "Basic Sweater" pattern in the book that was listed above but the hearts and the red pattern/design at the bottom were improvised.

12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lavender Bolero (Fixed broken photo links) on: August 04, 2006 06:36:59 PM
I made this bolero after I found the pattern on the internet.  The pattern calls for a button to be used but I opted for a brooch instead. 


13  CANADA / Ontario / Where can I buy a dress form in Toronto/GTA? on: August 01, 2006 08:44:48 PM
Does anyone know where I can buy a dress form for a reasonable price in the Toronto area?  I can't afford the ones that are in the $200 to $300 range but something in the $100 range would be great.  I just want to find a store that actually sells them.  Any help and info would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Newbie introduction with lots of pics! **UPDATED: Pattern links on Page 3!** on: July 28, 2006 05:56:08 PM
Hello all!  This is my first post so I'm quite nervous.  My name is Jie and I'm a self-taught, southpaw crocheter.  I joined this community because this is the only place that I can truly indulge in my passion for all things related to crocheting.  There's only so many times I can ramble on and on about the latest yarns, fabulous patterns, current w.i.p without having my family and friends roll their eyes in boredom.  LOL! 

Here are just some of the projects I have finished over the past few years.  Happy viewing!


This is a cardigan/bolero/shrug (can't decide what to call it) that I crocheted using a doily pattern I got from the internet as the starting point.  I just expanded on the size of the doily by increasing the hook size and adding more rows.  I got the inspiration for this project from the circle coat that was quite popular a while back.  I used Red Heart's TLC Baby yarn.

Baby shower gifts for a dear friend:

Pattern:  Soft & Sweet Book 0136 by Coats & Clark from the "Little Cherub Set"

Out of all the baby blankets I've made this is my favorite.  Pattern is called "Sweet Dreams" and can be found in A Year Of Afghans 1999 by Leisure Arts

Booties...both patterns were found on the internet.

Sweater & cap patterns found on the internet.  The cap was my first attempt at knitting.  Not too bad eh?

Thread Projects:

I made this doily as a wedding present for a close friend's mom.  I didn't want my friend's mom to feel left out at the bridal shower so I made her this mother-of-the-bride present...she loved it!

As soon as I found this pattern on the internet I fell in love with it.  Incredibly easy to make with maximum "wow" factor.

Thread coaster...made six of them and gave it as a gift.  To this day the recipient refuses to let anyone use them or even touch them because she's worried they're going to get damaged.  LOL!

My biggest project to date.  The pattern originally called for 117 squares but I increased the size to make it big enough to cover a queen size bed.  The total number of squares came out to 143...not including the countless hours of weaving in ends.  It was definitely a labor of love but I doubt I'll ever make another one again.  Too much work!

Pattern is from A Year Of Afghans 1999 by Leisure Arts and it's called "Daisy Delight"
