It looks really pretty!

Thank you! The yarn has little flecks of black and tan bits, which gives it a nice bit of interest.

I'm trying to learn a few new stitches right now, so I decided to give a corner-start scarf a go. I got the basic instructions for corner start from this pattern here:


I actually looked at a few different blogs before using this pattern. The pictures are slightly blurry, but I found this explanation the easiest to use because it showed the shape of things before you matched corners, and that was a huge help for me.

The scarf is made from mystery yarn and an L-hook, it hits just above my waistband and fits very comfortably into my jacket. I think the yarn is a wool blend.

Getting started was the hardest part; once I made the first few rows, this thing went quick.

They yarn is really pretty, and I love how the puff stitch gives the warmers a slouchy look. They look super cozy!

Aw, those are adorable!!  Definitely going to check out this pattern.

Technically, it's a great pattern. I'm going to be using it to make a lot of booties (I currently have three friends in various stages of pregnancy, so something quick and easy to mail will be perfect for everyone's celebration).
55  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Itty Bitty Galoshes (with link to pattern) on: November 11, 2013 10:18:33 PM

Baby booties designed to look like they're galoshes, which are the perfect baby gift up here in the Pacific Northwest. I found the pattern on ravelry:


It calls for an e-hook with worsted weight yarn, and once I got used to the intentional stitch tightness, they worked up exactly as the pattern said they would. I had some issues with the design of the pattern on the page--the design choices in the written patern; not the instructions--and got frustrated a few times because I found the pattern hard to follow at times because of how it was laid out.

I will say, once I got them done, I was very pleased, and now that I know the design of the written pattern has some visual tracking issues for me (I kept skipping rounds because of inconsistent spacing that made me think certain rounds were the rounds I'd always worked), I think the next pair will be less hook-snapping frustration.

Oh, I used Red Heart soft, by the way, which seemed to work up exactly like the Caron Simply Soft used in the original work.

The pinwheels are beautiful, and your seaming looks fantastic. If anyone notices the edge of the blanket curls a little, they are missing the forest for the trees in a big way. One round in the washer will probably soften it enough that it'll be unnoticeable even to you.

Great color choices! Points to your sister.

This looks great! I love that you had the color progression stay consistent, and it clearly pops out thanks to all the colors.

I'm so impressed that you made this without a pattern, but I guess someone always has to make up a pattern first for everyone to use, and you're that someone.

I'm trying to figure out how to translate for other people, but it's based on knowing my measurements and knowing when to increase and decrease, so it's difficult. The tutorial I posted further up the thread was basically how I started working without a pattern because it's all about using your measurements to get a well-fitted garment. I like it a lot.

I like this so much!! One of my favorite things in the world is to see clothing people design with crochet. This post makes me happy   Smiley

It turned out great, and fits you perfectly. Great job!

Thank you! I've spent a lot of time figuring out how to make stuff to fit, so it's always a thrill to finish a project that does. I'm so glad you liked it!

This is awesome! I love how you incorporated the lantern symbol into the dress in just the right places.

Thanks so much! I was really pleased with how the lantern symbols turned out, especially since I wasn't sure they'd work the way I pictured, but they did!
