1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lining a crochet blank: the best way? on: January 04, 2016 11:09:53 AM
This is the way I'm planning on finishing the back of an intarsia-knit blanket:
fold/press under raw edges of fabric used for edging
Use tapestry needle and yarn to hand-stitch to the back using blanket stitch (http://www.holiday-crafts-and-creations.com/how-to-do-blanket-stitch.html)
Then run some tufting loops through it to tack it in place.

When adding buttons to knitted and crocheted objects, I have sometimes found that an embroidered button loop is more secure/tighter fitting than a button hole.

Like this:

You can make the loop just barely big enough to fit over the button so that it won't slide off accidentally.

Hmm, I seem to remember that this pattern:

Has pointy ears in it. You could probably scale them up a little for your hoodie.

These are really cute! Love your use of the faux fur (I especially love the wooly bears!)

I've made a few of these cabled bracelets, and I get lots of compliments on them. They might make a neat gift.

I've also seen some patterns for I-cord necklaces that are very cute. Like this:

Ravelry.com has tons of this kind of pattern. I recommend searching there.

Are you on ravelry? If not, sign up. I found a whole bunch of patterns just with the searches "rainbow scarf" or "hair bow"

Pottermouth, it looks like you may have figured it out! Thanks!

Help, embroiderers!

I'm trying to figure out what stitch was used to make these pot holders:

I've zoomed in and in, but can't quite tell how she made each of these "squares". Any help is much appreciated!

I don't have any sock-specific advice, but if that region is always too tight, once you pick up the stitches you could start knitting the stitches with needles that are one size larger.
