21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Seeking a Sweater Dress Pattern on: September 19, 2012 10:11:42 PM
How about Lion Brand's Side to Side Cowl Neck Sweater, extended so that the garment is a dress instead of a top?  Lion Brand requires registration to access its patterns, but the patterns are free.

Poor couch! I would think single crochet with a worsted weight acrylic yarn would give you a tight, durable stitch and acrylic washes really well on delicate in the machine.

Good point on using acrylic.  In my original message, I suggested thread as a possibility, forgetting that many are made out of cotton.  Cotton will probably shrink when machine washed, leading to washed covers not fitting the cushions correctly.

I think if you want to completely cover the tears using crochet, you should use single crochet with a thin yarn or even thread.  If using granny squares, the rips still may be apparent in the gaps, although they won't be as visible if you use a thin yarn / thread with tight stitching.   Of course, the flip side is that the thinner the yarn you use, the longer it will take to finish.

I agree it's not a good use of your time to hunt down artists that you can't easily identify.  If posting the specific site is not against Craftster's user agreement, you may want to think about notifying the posters on the "Crafty Business Advice" board.

Them:  I understand what you say, but when you have thouthands of pictures is not easy. We dont want to disturb anyone and we write it if we have the original name of the owner of the design. Tks a lot!

Ridiculous.  The burden should be on the posting site to get permission from artists.  The images shouldn't be posted if the site administration doesn't have permission.

I saw three items that were NOT crocheted in Refinery29's listand commented to that effect.

Sorry for the multiple posts in a row, but I hope it's OK since some time has elapsed between each.  It appears crochet is in fashion right now.  Style blog Refinery29 recommends 15 crochet items.  All at pretty high prices--could be good inspiration for our own projects!

Ah, thanks for catching this.  Were some of the shoes among the non-crochet items?  Upon closer inspection, they look like macram.

This quilt is adorable.  Wonderful work.
27  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Other craft sites for crochet? on: September 01, 2012 12:16:59 PM
I second the above poster--Craftster and Ravelry are great sites.

I like Crochet Patter Central a lot, too.  It aggregates pattern links from all over the Web, although it doesn't have a forum feature.

There's Crochetville, although I don't use the forum myself.
28  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone know how to or where I can find a pattern to crochet this? on: September 01, 2012 12:04:13 PM
It's hard to tell in the photo, but the granny squares appear to be linked together at the back post of the dcs and at the ch spaces, perhaps by sc or chain stitches on the inside.  You can sort of see the gaps between front ridges of the dc, indicating that they are separate.  If you're looking for something more secure but still provides a similar look as in the photo, try the continuous join method.

Additionally, the lacy stitching at the neckline and hem look like a shell stitch.  Here are some shell stitch variations from About.com.

OP, what are your skills?  How much time do you have?

Maybe draw a picture of her pets all together?  Then, underneath write "The (her new last name) Family".  That would be really nice as a personalized gift.

This is a nice idea, but the OP should make sure that her instructor is going to change her name.
