1  Handwarmers from wool in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tanna on: October 04, 2008 10:27:01 AM
made this handwarmers lately and wanted to show them. I actually like the pattern, but in wool it's not very flexible all the time, maybe is should make the next ones just a little bit bigger... well here they go:

short tutorial, I hope im clear. I left my pattern for it at my home country, more or less 1500km away from here. I there is intressest for the real pattern i can put it up around december.<
here it goes:

i used 28 stitches with a 5mm needle to can go around my wist and arm (this was a little bit to thight for me, and i have really small hands), You need to make sure that it fitst around your hand when putting them on. I begun in the bottom of the handwarmer, and when i reached the point where my hand starts to be wider (somewhere by the thumb) i started to add on the side of the thum. i just moved and stretched my hand on all possible ways to be sure if it was fitting good and just adding stitches when was neccessary.
than i came on the point that i was above my thumb, and i just joined the parts that was covering the hand with some stitches in between (i think it was 4) to make sure that the thum was still free to move, than i worked to the top again. Increasing and adding when was neccessary.

3  wallet from leftover curtain and old pants in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Tanna on: May 06, 2008 12:32:28 AM
This is my first kind of wallet ever, i just started sewing without a pattern or something and this is what came out! i'm happy with it, and the person i made it for also so it's ok!

I used fabric that was not wearable as pants anymore (really my bf weared it untill it was ripped everywhere but he totally weared it (and i repared it) untill it was not really acceptable anymore by people who love to have clothes with no holes  and even by the people who don't mind a few holes haha), and a piece of leftover curtain wich was leftover because the curtains where to long.

7  simple headbands - with tutorial - in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tanna on: January 12, 2008 03:26:32 AM
well this are my pictures online from what i made, i'll come up with some new stuff later Smiley but i just wanted to show them

edit: here is the tutorial! i hope it make sense because i we other terms in the netherlands and i ad to use an translation! if you have questions then ask them.
- please do not use this pattern for selling, this is a free pattern!!-

In this example the headband is 4cm wide
1 First you have to make chains from something further then you ear to the other side something further than your ear.

2 Then you just single crochet and Increase on both sides untill you think the part is wide enough (because this is one half, so in the example this part is 2 cm and than the whole headband will be 4 cm wide). bind off.

3 Than you start to make a chain of chains, this must be not to short because you have to bind it up to a knot behind your head with the other part.

4 if this piece is long enough you start to single crochet on the headband part and if you are on the end you make a chain of chains as long as the other part by step 3 crochet back on top of this all (also the sticking out chains)and bind off

5. start at the beginning of the headband where the chain of chains with single crochet on top of it ends (just pick a side you like because you have two of them). And start directly with decreasing single crochet to the other side and turn around with decreasing. now you go on untill in this example the headband is 4cm in the wide.

6. crochet around bind off and finished!
