1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Intarsia? on: January 03, 2007 08:26:41 AM
The only way I can figure out how to do crochet intarsia is by carrying the unused yarn behind the yarn I'm currently using. This is easy but a) it wastes A LOT of yarn and b) sometimes if I'm using several colours you can see the unused strands being carried behind the active strand.

Is there another technique that is more practical than this one? I don't like the idea of just ending off and starting a new strand every time I need to change a colour, esp. if I'm just working one stitch of a particular colour.

Thanks for any help and or tips!

They're made from TSP, I think -- they're sort of spongy, and the size of a cherry. They are not toasted soy nuts. You'll find them in a lot of vegetarian Chinese cuisine. They also come in sort of a 'slice' shape.

I'm going to try and steam a few, and boil a few, to see what gets the best results.

I found a grocery store in town that sells dehydrated soy balls in bulk, and I would really love to cook them. The only way I've had them prepared, though, is battered and deep-fried and I'd prefer to cook them another way. Anyone have ideas? I was thinking maybe marinating them, steaming them...

It's crocheted from several different yarns; I started off with a ball of Noro Kureyon with a rusty/green/pink colour scheme. I used it again a couple of times further down. The bright yellow is handspun yarn dyed with gooseberries. There are a few rows crocheted with banana frond yarn.

Essentially, I started with a small circle and crocheted even for 3 or 4 rows. Then I began to increase very gradually. Once I thought that the little chullo peak was complete, I began to increase a little less gradually until I had a good crown width, then continued even until the hat was complete. The earflaps are just two triangles which I crocheted around to make a rounder look.

Here's a chullo, complete with earflaps for that vicious prairie wind. I made up the pattern -- just started w/a small circle and increased gradually.

I have girlfriends who still refer to it as 'down there.' Ew!

As it stands right now, I've had to put my prices in US dollars, and put a note on each item that if a potential buyer is in Canada, they need to email me so I can invoice them for the cost of the item and shipping. A pain and will likely discourage any CDN buyers from, well, buying!
