Does anyone know how to map out an image into a scarf?  I want to try and do the crochet version of one of the stitch and bitch projects - the sweater with the skulls (but instead of a sweater, it's  a scarf).  Does anyone have any ideas, hints or patterns for doing that?  I'm sort of a newbie, but I pick things up pretty quick like  Wink

Thanks!

Becky

I don't honestly think it's possible to crochet an image into something else. I think that's a knitter's privilege....(darn their lucky faces.) I may be wrong......I've only been crocheting for a year. You could crochet the image you want separately and sew it on...

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

Sure you can crochet an image, but I think it's trickier than in knitting.  Here's some instructions:

http://www.knitting-and.com/crochet/tunisian-intarsia.htm

I don't know how much different tunisian crochet is from regular crochet, but I KNOW I've seen some crocheted fair-isle stuff before (my mother has some patterns) and I believe they are just done in single crochet, so I assume it is possible to do colorwork in regular crochet as well.  I've never tried it, though.

Just do it in single crochet using a graph. It works better if you use thick yarns or yarns that don't show through easily and you just carry the unused yarn along and crochet over it until you need it.
How I did the colour change on this turnip is a way of doing intarsia in single crochet.

Some of it doesn't look that perfect because the lighter yarn is thinner than the purple yarn.

That turnip is completely awesome, though!  Did you have any fate in particular in mind, or is a just-in-case-of-emergency turnip?  and could you post a tute?

I was making some vegetables to make a fruit and veg basket.
I think I have the pattern somewhere.
oh I have the pattern but i've helpfully not described the colour switching completely. basically i did the first round of colour changing as 4purple, 1 white, next round was 3 purple, 2white, then 2purple, 1 white, 1 purple, 2 white (or something like that), then 1 purple, 4 white, then just white. It was something like that anyway.

Warning, I've not completely bothered to describe the yarn colour switching in the pattern. It's somewhat random in any case and that's what helps the effect, I feel.

Hook: F/5 (3.75mm)

with purple: ch 3, sl st into ch-1 to form loop
rnd 1: ch1, s7 sc
rnd 2: 2sc in each st round
rnd 3: 1sc, 2sc in stitch rnd
rnd 4: 2 sc, 2sc in stitch rnd, ending with 2sc in last st
rnd 5: 1 sc, 2scin stich
rnd 6: sc rnd
rnd 7: sc rnd
rnd 8: 5 sc, inc, rnd, 1sc in last stitch
rnd 9: sc rnd
rnd 10: Start changing colour to white/cream radually from this point: 5sc, decrease
rnd 11: sc rnd
rnd 12: sc rnd
fasten off purple completely by this point
rnd 13: sc rnd
rnd 14: sc rnd
rnd 15: 4sc, decrease
rnd 16: 1sc, decrease
rnd 17: 1sc, decrease
rnd 18: sc rnd
rnd 19: sc rnd
rnd 20: 1sc, decrease
fasten off and leave a tail to mimic the root tail.

greens:
with green, ch3, sl st in ch-1
rnd 1: ch1, sc, ch5, sc, ch7, sc, ch5, sc, ch7, sc
fasten off
Attach greens to top, probably best to do this before finishing off the turnip since you have to stuff the turnip as you go along.

You carry it along so you don't have five BILLION ends to weave in later on.
There's a kind of crochet called tapastry crochet where you crochet around a cord. I've heard of someone that does amazing painting-like soft sulpture vase-like things with this method using embroidery floss and carrying all the colours along.

I'm just doing a little swatch of sorts that's like the hello kitty thingies. But I like Chococat better and black works better with this yarn. Both yarns are DK thickness.


Holding the yarn behind(this is how you would hold the yarn when the "right" side of the work is facing you)


Holding the yarn in front(this is how you would hold the yarn when the "wrong" side of the work is facing you)

So the unused yarn is held near the top of the stitches and the hook goes through the stitch and underneath the unused yarn, picks up the being-used yarn on the other side, pull through, yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook. So you're kind of working around the unused part and treating it like it's part of the already completed stuff/fabric.

The flash makes the black yarn that's being carried show up a lot more than it actually looks in real life. But the techinque does work better with low contrast, similar coloured yarns. rather than high contrast (like black and white) or very different coloured yarns (Red and green).
