She is adorable!
I have three boys, 21, 19, & 17 years old and I still break out singing that song!

LOL! (Some Sesame Street songs you can just never get out of your head and they will stay with you forever!!!) (Not that that's bad either).

What a great idea to crochet one of the ladybugs!   Grin

I took a photo of my graph for those who wanted to make something using the pattern.
(Click on the photo to embigger.)  Wink

Each puzzle piece is 13 squares across, (minus the "heads". If you keep that number in mind you won't mess up.

The outlined area is what I used for the poncho. (But the third row is really a repeat of the first row).
All you really need to remember is two squares across and two squares up.
(But it does help to draw out more of it to visualize it in your mind better).

I'd love to see the things you all make with it!

shootingstar, my niece is autistic.
She's my baby sister's youngest.
She's really sweet and likes to knit!

PimpernelSmith, even though the pieces are rounded, when you click on the photos and enlarge them, you can see that the pieces are still graphed in the usual "blocky" way.

Thanks everybody for saying such nice things.  Grin
197  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Autism Awareness Puzzle Piece Poncho**NEW**Puzzle Scarf added!!** on: May 28, 2008 07:50:51 PM
Yay! Another project to use your left-over yarn on!
(Please click on the photos to enlarge the images).

(Yes, that's me in the poncho).  Tongue

This was crocheted using a size J cabled afghan hook and left-over yarns consisting mostly of Red Heart and I Love This Yarns.

Here I've put my hands on my hips to spread out the poncho so you can see it all clearly.
(I wish I had a photo taken with my arms at my sides from the back too but I didn't think of it at the time.

The poncho is done Tunisian crochet style by repeating a small puzzle piece graph I made up myself using a pencil and graph paper.
The popular "symbol" for autism is a puzzle piece or puzzle pieces. Especially made with different colored pieces. I thought this would make a nifty pattern.

It is two seperate panels which I joined together after finishing them. The end of one panel is joined to the side of the other. And that panel's end is joined to the side of the first panel. (I hope all that makes sense).

Finally, I trimmed the edges in single crochet stitch with a combo of Moda Dea's Chichi, (mmm, soooo soft), and Fun Fur. This stopped any curling that there was and also filled in the part around the neck to make it nice and toasty.

Now, all I need is a nice cool day to wear it.
(Too bad it's becoming hotter every day).  Undecided

edit: I've added a puzzle piece scarf to the end of this post. I think it's page three. Grin
198  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: The Times They Are A-changin'/ Bob Dylan Afghan on: May 06, 2008 04:57:44 AM

It's tunisian crochet using a size J cabled afghan hook.

After the two pieces were done, I single crochet around them both, and then joined them in the middle. (On the back you can see a crocheted seam.)

Then I single crocheted around the whole thing in black.
Then, there are two rows of 5 triple crochet shell clusters.
The first in blue all the way around, the second alternating red/white shells on the top and bottom and black/white shells on the sides. (I didn't have enough red for the sides but the black works fine).
199  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: The Times They Are A-changin'/ Bob Dylan Afghan on: May 05, 2008 05:41:49 PM
It's 65 inches across and 59 inches high.

I graphed the photos at http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/
I used three graphs. One for the words, one for early Dylan, and one for later Dylan.

I drew a star on graph paper and used that for the stars.
That was really tricky trying to keep the repeating stars pattern behind the Bob Dylan words. As I was doing it I kept saying to myself, "What have you got yourself into now??!!" LOL!!
But I had to put his name up in the stars.  Cheesy

To make his faces really pop out, I made the colors on the faces exactly opposite of the red and white stripes on the background. This makes him contrary. I like that a lot.

200  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / The Times They Are A-changin'/ Bob Dylan Afghan on: May 05, 2008 02:37:55 PM
This is my tribute to Bob Dylan. (Please click on the photos to enlarge them).

It is a crocheted afghan using a size J cabled hook.
The white and red yarn is "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby. The black and blue yarn is Red Heart yarn. (I ran out of the blue and went to every yarn store around and couldn't come up with the match so it gets up to a darker blue near the top.) Oh well.

There are two images of Dylan. One from the album cover The Times They Are A-changin'

 and one from "The Essential Bob Dylan" album.
This way there are two Bobs One for his early accoustic guitar years, and one for his later electric guitar years.

I decided to crochet them seperately and then join them in the center. It was easier this way. All the letters and color changes at the top, and the size of the afghan made this the most logical way.
I graphed the images at microrevolt. The words, (font and all),  are all from the first album cover.

I absolutely love this song. (The Times They Are A-changin').
I heard it for the first time on a Simon and Garfunkel album and I was blown away - it  was so awesome. I have provided links in my blog to some versions I found on Youtube.
This one was a nice version with a montage of photos of Bob.


Also there are a few more photos of the afghan in my blog including the back.

Tomorrow is the Democratic Primary elections here in Indiana. And, of course, the Presidential elections are in November. So I wanted to get this posted tonight for you-all.

Dylan really is awesome! Grin
