wow! great bright colors!
23  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Granny square pillows! on: July 05, 2005 08:37:28 AM
well done! I like the chunkiness of them--what size hook and yarn did you use?  I've been working on some pillows lately too---do you like the button back type or have you figured out a way to make the case zippered?
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / kid's scrap tam on: July 04, 2005 02:34:06 PM

pattern: sorry, in a copyrighted book---I did a quick search, though I found some tam patterns, nothing with this particular design--anyone else know of a similiar freebie to share?
yarn: all left-over wool ends and scraps!
hook: 4 mm

This is a great scrap user! It's a child's size, but could easily be adjusted for adult. The pom is a little weak, because I ran out of yarn, but that's the whole point of a scrap-buster project!
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / mini capelet and hat on: July 04, 2005 02:15:41 PM

pattern: version of 'Round the Capelet' http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/ponchos.php
hook: 5.5 mm
yarn: two strands held together of hand-dyed wool (sorry, unlabeled bargain bin find)

I just finished a mini version of this great, easy capelet pattern. The original, for adults, uses chunky yarn and a huge hook.  A smaller hook and two strands of finer yarn made up for this toddler version.  It was a bit of an experiment, but it worked! 

A basic hat pattern with an added trim (same as last row of capelet pattern) and an added bobble-flower on each and voila!

The hat looks huge compared to the capelet, but this kid's got a big pumpkin.
26  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: I need a blankie! on: July 04, 2005 12:49:08 PM
I distinctly remember my mom convincing my baby sister that her blankie (quilted, in much need of repair) was 'sick' and needed to go to the 'blankie doctor'---it worked, she relinquished it long enough to be fixed up like new!  Maybe that would work again.
Good luck!

Oh, I wish even published books did this!!  Between my US books, my UK books, and all those of both camps just poorly written, I spend so much of my time just deciphering patterns!!

I'm finding that the newest books, with those 'hip' designs, are the biggest culprits. I'm working on a pattern now that reads :  'DC 1' not for Double Crochet 1, but for DECREASE 1!  I had to rip out, ugh. 

Thanks for the reminder, I think I'm guilty of using sloppy abbreviations myself, even with my complaining! Smiley

28  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hooded Baby Blankets! on: July 04, 2005 12:33:47 PM
I've made two of these hooded baby blankets for gifts. I think the first one I did in a medium-weight cotton is nice, but not really used that much with the hood--my friend says she uses it mostly just as a regular blanket.  Though she did use the hood when from time to time when her daughter was just an infant, to swaddle her up in. Once she started really moving around though, the hood was not really popular.

With that in mind for the second one however, I used a washable cotton terry-style yarn, and the now-toddler recipient loves it as a cozy after-bath wrap--- with the hood on!

good luck!

great looking blanket! I love the final edging---do you have a tut for the crab stitch? Couldn't find it on stitchguide...

Thank you!  She's a mystery-mix rescued from a shelter...no idea exactly what kind, but to me, she looks and acts like a Jack Russell Terrier meets a Black Lab (!!).  She's the sweetest thing ever.


Thanks so much for the links--I think there are a few I can work with there! Will post results of course.
