1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Where to find out of print Simplicity Patterns? on: November 03, 2007 04:10:46 AM
I was looking through all the back-posts in the children's clothing forum here, and a pattern someone used was 3899, which is listed as out of print on the Simplicity site.

They only have 15 patterns listed on their site for children, and I'm wondering where I am supposed to find the GAJILLIONS of patterns I know exist that they say are out of print.

Anyone that can help me will be highly appreciated.



TIA!

Ok...I somewhat picked up crochet. My main point with that so far seems to be patterns that are just plain WEIRD.

Anyway, I really want to try out knitting too, as I like changing between lots of different crafts and projects at once. I currently crochet, cross-stitch, work with wire and beads, and do polymer clay...on top of raising an 18 month old and being pregnant lol.

So, I like to go for sets when I do something...mainly because I like to have what I need for lots of different things. Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what would be best to get. The best set for my money...the best mix-n-match needles...whatever it may be and why you think it would be best for me to get it.

I would really appreciate the input since I really would love to get into knitting. I would LOVE to be able to make socks for the new baby and especially for my daughter cause her little tootsies get cold so easily.

Thanks!

Nevermind, got the first row and the second...then the third one got weird on me. It must be my crochet and not the pattern since everyone else can get it without a problem.

Well, the neck is actually sewn together at the very last, but I'm not sure if I would be able to cut the threads that I sewed the front and back shoulders together with. I suppose I could give it a try at least. For next time I'm wondering if it's able to make a neck stretchier than the rest of the piece.

Thanks for your help though. I get to at least say I finished it.

Husband is currently stationed at Yokota Air Base. Pretty far from everyone I guess, except we come down to Yokosuka Naval Base a couple times a year.

If anyone is ever near Fussa-shi let me know!

Well, I went ahead and did what I thought it was calling for...which seems right now that I'm finished.

Unfortunately the neck doesn't stretch and the neckhole is way too small for my toddlers big noggin. So I made something useless lol. But at least it's my first finished piece besides a blanket.

The part that is confusing me is that there is this 9dc scallop, and it says to put 1sc in between the first 2dc on scallop. Then I ch3 and 1sc into the ch1 space, which is 8dc away...kinda weird to me. Unless they mean to do the 1sc ch3 1sc between each of the dc 7 times since there are a total of 9 scallop dc.

Actually...I think that answers my question...so I'll go and try it.

Thanks!

I am doing the pattern at http://*****************/web/20000510141442/http://www.cei.net/~vchisam/groovy/v-14.html for toddler size 2 dress for my daughter. So far it's gone "ok" as it's only my second actual piece that I'm trying to finish. The weird thing is that at
Quote
All Sizes ch 3, work 1 (1-2-2) dc, ch 2 and 2 (2-3-3) dc in space for first shell, * ch 1, in next ch-3 space work 11 dc for scallop, ch 1, 2 (2-3-3) dc, ch 2 and 2 (2-3-3) dc shell in next shell, repeat from * around, end ch 1, scallop in space of last shell, ch 1, join to ch-3, ch 1, sl st to first space.

I end up with two scallops directly next to each other at the end of the row. I went ahead and went with that since it seems that's what the pattern says to do.

The part that is REALLY messing me up is
Quote
Row 3: Work first shell, ** ch 1, 1 sc in space between next 2 dc's on scallop, * ch 3, 1 sc in next ch-1 space *, repeat from * to * 6 times more, ch 1, 1 shell in next shell, repeat from to last scallop, ch 1, 1 sc in first space on scallop, repeat from * to 7 times, ch 1, join, sl st in space.

I honestly don't have any clue what they're talking about. The row is started off with the 2dc-ch2-2dc shell, and then I am lost. If anyone could clear this pattern up for me a bit I would really appreciate it.

Thank you all!

This will probably work nicely to finish it off and secure it pretty well. You could leave an extra long length at the end and weave the loose end back into the beads to keep from cutting it too short.
