1  Re: V-Stitch Foundation in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by pfirsch on: June 30, 2018 08:09:30 AM
I want to make the Dark Comfort Shawl, but I don't want to count out 200+ chain stitches.

Last night, I found my photo tutorial for how to make a V-stitch foundation chain.  It was based on the directions at a site that is no longer available.  Check out the archived directions here:  https://web.archive.org/web/20071029220232/http://www.baycrochet.com/foundatn.htm

I still want to figure out the shell foundation though.  If I figure that out, I will share it here.

I figured it out! Cool

My results are here.

4  Pencil Case for RB in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pfirsch on: August 04, 2007 12:35:04 PM
I made my nephew a pencil case using Miss You Sew Much's zipper pouch tutorial.

The black is from a pair of my daddy's work pants and the lining is from a message board I made in college.

For the past week or so, I have been thinking of making a clothes pin bag.  I like yours.
I finally made one! Cheesy

I'm debating whether or not to square the bottom, but for now, it's usable even though I haven't taken care of the strings yet.  It's made from an old turtleneck sweater and roughly based on the clothespin bag pattern at Sewing @ About.com.

Thanks for getting back to me so quick!  That's not quite what I'm looking for. Maybe someone can figure it out and come up with a pattern. This is what it looks like.
   Thanks again!
Well, Cherry Tree Hill Yarns had this pattern as one of their freebies a couple years back.  You can buy it for $5 though.

I know there are some vintagey gals on here, I was curious if some of you had a crochet pattern for a snood?Huh

How about making a tam or beret using mesh/net-like stitches?  You might want to work a piece of elastic in the headband.
