What a cool pattern!  I don't think I've ever seen that stitch before, but now I want to try it.  Great job!

Thanks, Alichka - that is very helpful!  That's where I got stuck, when crocheting in the one remaining loop of the chain made things look looser and yes, a little asymmetrical, so I thought it might be wrong.  But I'll just keep going knowing that's correct!  This is a fun pattern - and so quick to make, even for a newbie! - so I'm sure I will be making others as well.   Wink

Hi - I'm hoping one of you more experienced crocheters out there can give me a quick tip!  This is a newbie question that's probably more generally about how to crochet, but I'm running into it on the One-Skein scarf.  After the three rows of double crochet and one row of shell stitch, the pattern calls for you to turn the corner and do the shell stitch back down the other side, which ends up being the bottom of the chain row that you've already dc'ed into from the other direction.  Into what part of the chain do I now do the shell stitch?  Just into the "butt" of each chain that is left over after crocheting into the chain from the first time?  I had tried the project one other time with a different yarn, and stopped, partly because I was running out of yarn, and partly because I didn't feel sure about how to proceed at that point...so any tips from you more seasoned folks would be very helpful.  Smiley  Thanks!

That is really nice!  I hadn't seen the pattern before (guess I'm the only one?) but I actually think I like your version better than the original.  Kudos!
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: continental v.s. English methods? on: November 13, 2007 11:40:40 AM
I've found continental to be a faster method for me, too (even purling!)  I learned English first, got frustrated, learned to crochet, and then came back to knitting continental style; as others have said, if you have the hang of crochet, continental seems easier.  There are advantages to knowing both, though.  One can be that it gives your muscles some variety; I sometimes switch back and forth to give my hands a break from repetitive motion.  Also, if you're doing colorwork, it can be helpful to hold one strand of each color in each hand and knit one continental, the other English.  But in the end, it comes down to what works best for you!

Thanks for the pattern!  I'm going to try it out.   Cheesy

That is really cool!  Can you share any more about the pattern?  I'm a new crocheter, so I can try to deduce how it's made from looking at it, but I don't get very far.   Smiley  It looks so delicate for being made with worsted weight yarn!

That is really nice!  In fact, I think I like your variation better than the original.  I'm a relatively new crocheter looking for my first larger/intermediate project, and this looks like it might be a good one.  Thanks for sharing, and inspiring!

Soozeq, thanks for finding the pattern!  And Grahairedoldlady, thanks for posting your pics - I always feel more inspired to try something if I can see a finished version other than the one shown in the pattern photo.  Helps me visualize the possibilities, I guess.  I think I need to try this one!

This is really nice!  Quite elegant, actually - the yarn really shows off the stitch pattern.  Do you have the name of the pattern?  I might try to find it myself.
