21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: New to knitting and have some questions regarding needles on: October 22, 2004 06:49:08 AM
Thanks for your input.  I found a pair of size 2 aluminum needles for $0.43 on clearance, I am betting I won't use them much but I bought them anyway.  I also bought some cable stitich holders for 40% off even though I don't know how to use them.  I bought this stuff b/c I wanted to buy something so badly but I didnt have much feedback here yet! LOL

Anyway, thanks a mill, I am sure I will have many more questions. Smiley
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / New to knitting and have some questions regarding needles on: October 20, 2004 09:52:55 AM
Hello all!  I recently learned how to knit and I was wondering, how do you make huge afghans on those needles?  I know this is a lame question but seriously.  DO you just bunch it all up?  Is it easier to make on circular needles? 

Also, Hobby Lobby has a 40% off knitting accessories sale this week.  Do you think it is worthwhile to buy a whole set of needles or should I buy a few or what?  If only a few, what sizes would you buy?  What are "common"?  I just picked up a pair of size 7 from the Salvation Army and I have a pair of size 13s.  I found a bunch of those "cable knit" needles at a thrift store for $0.25 a set.  Would you buy those?

Thanks in advance!

Does anyone know where a FREE crocheted sock monkey pattern is on the net??  It would be greatly appreciated. Smiley

Any ideas on how to assemble this?

Perhaps into a big rectangle and then stitch that together?  That is the easiest way I would know to do it.  Then it looks like they have some sort of edging.

Hmm, I am getting excited about this pattern.  Perhaps I should try it. Smiley

I don't want to insult you or anything but could you possibly have miscounted on the last row?  Also, I agree with the last poster.  If you have a chain 3, that will count as 1 dc. HTH

I hope you were able to get a good nap in!

Show us photos once you "join them all together."

Oh good lord. LOL I don't know that I will be able to do the whole poncho. ROFL  I was just trying to help a girl out with the flower pattern. Smiley  Although it is intriguing(sp) b/c that is a REALLY cool poncho!! (just not with the yarn I chose this morning) ~twintoo

Hi!  Keep in mind that it is 5:30am.  I have been up since 3:30 when my child woke up screaming b/c her daddy was going to work. UGH Undecided

Don't mind that pattern in the background.  It has nothing to do with this flower LOL  Crocheting stuff has overtaken my home.  Grin

I used a size F hook (first one I grabbed) and some old Bernat Berella Germantown 4 ply acrylic yarn.

Chain 4 and join with a slipstitch to form a ring.  Make 7 sc in the ring and join with slip stitch.  Chain 4(counts as 1st treble crochet), then make a treble crochet where you joined the scs.  Make 2 treble crochets in each sc around, join with slip stitch.  Chain 7 and join to the top of the 3rd treble crochet over (so it appears there is one treble crochet between where your chain began and ended), repeat around and join with sl st.  sc in first ch of the 7 you made, half dc in the next, 2 dc in the next, treble crochet in the 4th, 2 dc in the 5th, hdc in the 6th, and sc in the 7th.  Do this all the way around.  join and finish off.  That should give you an 8 petaled flower. Smiley  Mine measures 3.25 inches across.

Make a bunch of those and join them together like the one on EBay.  Smiley  good luck

Chain 1, depending on your last row, you may have a chain 1 space or 2 stitches.  Whatever you have skip it(2 stitches or a chain 1 space) and go to the next chain one space.  In that chain one space do the puff stitch, chain 1, puff stitch.  Chain one and then skip whatever you have next (a chain 1 space or 2 stitches)...

I hope that helped!

I'm not going to try it b/c then I would get hooked (pun intended LOL) and I have too many other projects to finish!  HOWEVER, *that* is CUTE!
