1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Felted Valentine's Tote on: February 05, 2009 08:59:56 AM
I hope I can post pictures now.  I'm up to 10 posts..

Anyhoo...   I just finished this tote this morning.  Wove in the ends while watching Headline News at 5am.

Hit the Washer at about 8am and was in pictures a few minutes later.



I got the idea from the "Stitch to Win" contest winners squares at www.redheart.com, using the December square designed by Michelle Taylor.

I made an oval base using regular crochet and I think a J hook.  Might have been a K, but either way, a fairly loose sc base.  I used a size N (Bernat aero) Tunisian Hook.

The square is based on 42 stitches across.  I planned to make this in Tunisian, stitching each side separately, then seaming it.. so I made my base to come out at 46 stitches per side.. so there were an extra two stitches on each side of the square.

I also did 10 rows of TKS (tunisian knit stitch) before I started the heart pattern and 10 rows afterwards.

I used two full skeins of Lionbrand wool in the red.  I really could've used a 3rd skein, but didn't have any more in the same dyelot.  As it was, I had to make the handles in hotpink.

There's lots more pictures and more details on my blog.  Direct link is:
