21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: 3 in 2 Questions... crocheting an oval ?... chart crochet ? on: August 21, 2008 05:33:08 PM
You're welcome, I'm glad I could help.

1. To make an oval, chain, crochet into your chain, and when you reach the end put 3 sts into the last chain. Then simply continue crocheting into the other side of the chain. Again, when you reach the end, 3 sts into the last st. Just keep going.

2a. Yes, each square on the chart represents 1 sc.

2b. Yes, you should be able to use a cross stitch chart with success.

Here's a quick test I learned today that'll tell you one way or the other: take a few inches and roll it into a ball. Wet it and add a little soap, then rub it together between your palms for about 3 minutes. Rinse the soap, and see what you've got.

You could always add the skirt portion of the dress as a separate piece.

I agree with the alpaca, but I'd be sure to get it in a blend, i.e. alpaca/wool. The wool will provide the memory needed for garments.

Thread the yarn through the last 10 stitches twice, then pull tight. Weave in the end on the inside of the hat.

Nope, it should work as written. My guess is that it has something to do with the direction of the cables.

It was the one I wore every day in high school (we're talking the '80's, folks). I decided to try my hand at painting on fabric, enjoy.

It's only one of many sweaters out there that call for bulky yarn & honkin' needles.
