1081  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: My CuppyCakes! **Now with a tutorial!** (Pic Heavy!!) on: June 27, 2007 12:36:52 PM
Ha! I get it completely! I was thinking that you started at the bottom of the cupcake and worked your way up...silly me! No wonder I couldn't figure it out by looking at it Wink

Thank you so much for the tutorial!

 Cheesy Yea that's what I thought at first, too. But then I studied the picture harder & figured out that the bottom was crocheted onto the puff. Good luck with your own cupcake ventures! Smiley

I would definitely like to see a tutorial, if you're up for sharing! Those animals are so cute! What a great way to use up scrap material! I'm starting to get the itch to make homemade toys for my little one as well. Great job!

1087  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: My CuppyCakes! **Now woth a tutorial!** (Pic Heavy!!) on: June 27, 2007 08:28:13 AM
Okay... here is my tutorial. I am very visually oriented, so I apologize for the mass amount of pictures. This is my safety net, provided my written instructions are confusing. Smiley

I'm using leftover pink & brown yarn & a size I/9 (5.50mm) hook.

"Special" Stitch: shell= 6 treble crochets in stitch specified.

Ch 15.
Dc in 4th ch from hook & across. (13 dc) Ch 3 & turn.
Dc in same dc as ch 3 & across (14 dc). Ch 3 & turn.
Dc in each dc across (excluding the dc w/ the ch 3 as in previous row). (13 dc)



Here's where it gets a lil tricky for me to explain, so here come the multitude of pictures.

Now we are going to put a shell on the side of the 3 rows. Slip stitch here:
Quality is a lil crappy, I'm sorry.

The shell consists of 6 treble crochets. They go here:


Once you have completed the shell, slip stitch it to the first dc of your beginning row:


Skip 2 dc & put shell in 4th dc, as shown here:


Then, skip 3 dc & sl st here:


Skip 2 dc & put shell in next dc. (don't have a photo sorry, but you'll be able to get the idea from the next one)

Slip stitch around last dc of row:


Put another shell around the dc of the middle row, like you did on the first side (no photo).

Slip stitch in top of "dc of last row" (otherwise known as the ch 3 from the 3rd row...just slip stitch in top of ch 3):


Continue with 2 more shells as stated above. Fasten off.

Now, to attach the cupcake bottom.

Join brown w/ slip stitch in any corner of your "puff" (in the same place where you slip stitched down one of your side puffs).


Ch 3 & dc in same place as where you slip stitched to join.


Skip 1 treble crochet of the shell & sc across the next 4 treble crochets. (once again, I apologize for the crappy photo quality)


Skip last treble crochet & dc in space between shells where you slip stitched down your shell.


Skip 1 treble crochet & sc in next 4 treble crochets of 2nd shell.


Skip last treble crochet of 2nd shell & put 2 dc in corner.


Ch 2 & turn. Hdc across, but do NOT hdc in the top of the ch 3 from the previous row. (11 hdc, do not count ch 2).


Ch 2 & turn. Hdc across, do NOT hdc in top of ch 2 from previous row. (10 hdc, do not count ch 2).

Ch 2 & turn. Hdc across, do NOT hdc in top of ch 2 from previous row. (9 hdc, do not count ch 2).

Ch 2 & turn. Hdc across, do NOT hdc in top of ch 2 from previous row. (8 hdc, do not count ch 2). Fasten off.

There you go! There's my first ever tutorial! Sorry about all of the pictures. I guess I like to be very thorough. Smiley

1088  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: Anymore Beginner Swaps? on: June 27, 2007 07:16:30 AM
Welcome, kbauer! You will have to be a member for at least one month before you are eligible to sign up for a swap, and then you may choose one. Once that one has been completed successfully, you can participate in up to five swaps at a time. Please be careful, though...they are addictive.  Cheesy



Aww crap! I totally forgot about the 1 month rule & just signed up for the penpal swap. Oh well, guess I'll be denied. Shoot! I guess for the time-being, I can just create stuff & put it in a box labelled Swap Stuff...hopefully I will get a chance to use some of it. Thanks for the input!
