1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: fan bookmark turn scarf on: July 18, 2008 07:59:12 PM
I didn't change the pattern at all, I used Noro kureyon with 5mm hook, and it will came out to the scarf size fan, don't worried, unless you use very thin yarn. I didn't count how many fan I do, I just keep crochet until I finish 3 ball of yarn.

What yarn you planning to use?

This is so unique! Did it take alot to adjust the pattern to a scarf? I'm not very good with improvising. I need to read it to do it.

I didn't do much adjust except the first set of pattern in full circular instead of half, the rest just follow exactly as the pattern. The pattern is super easy, I am thinking of crochet another one in  Noro silk garden yarn.

here is the pattern link http://crochetroo.blogspot.com/2006/05/fan-bookmark.html

I never know the color will try out so nice when I started it, I used 3 balls of Noro Kureyon in color 215. Wink

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / stripy top "paris" on: December 03, 2007 07:19:48 AM
I found this lovely round button few month ago and I wanted to do a top that will really show off the button, I thought a stripy top with a side button will be perfect. Is a simple top down raglan top, but still I have make a mistake by knitting it open at the button side. At the end I have to seam it back and add on a button loop on each button placement so that the seaming line is less visible.Beside the button open, I have quite a hard time doing the stripe since I choose to knit the top in round. I follow Meg Swansons jogless stripe tutorial however, it didnt turn out as good as I expected, the sts somehow still a bit joggedlucky I done the joining at the side. you can see the awful join on my blog http://windloop.wordpress.com

That turned out SO WELL!  It was worth the extra time!  I like it much better than the original pattern, which somehow looked unbalanced to me.  This version I might make.....

What kind of yarn did you use?

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, I glad how it turn out, the yarn I use is cashmere from China, I don't know the name, is a gift from my mom.

Recently I am obsess about puff sleeve..I turn the Wicked sweater into puff sleeve Wicked. It take me quite awhile to finish this sweater because:
First, I did a wrong size.
Second, wrong gauge( didnt swatch).
Thirdly, added 4 sts on each underarm( trying to avoid the hole)

..so end up I redo the 3/4 of body part twice and I have to decrease about 40 sts right from underarm just to make it fitted.  As for the puff sleeve, I just add 2 sts every 3 row until it puff enough and do a sudden decrease.

WOW!! what type of pattern did you use/yarn? is it like a basketweave with a bunch of cables? you did a great job
The pattern is from the scarfstyle- Lady eleanor stole. The pattern call for 8 square repeats, but I do 5 square as a scarf size. The yarn I use is Rowan Tapestry, actually I dont particular like it is a bit too hairy for me.
