31  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: My Granny squares are unraveling...Oh! me! Oh! my! HELP! on: June 24, 2005 07:55:16 AM
Rather than tying knots (that always come undone!), try this yarn-change technique:

http://www.stitchguide.com/stitches/crochet/stitch_pages/cro_color_change.html

Then, leave ends long and crochet right over them. It's a much more secure way to go and with some practice, should work for granny squares.

Good luck!
32  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / cute dog sweater pattern? on: June 24, 2005 07:32:49 AM
Though it's tempting, I'm not looking for a dog-motif sweater pattern..I'm still just searching for a simple crocheted dog sweater..something not too-cutesy or a simple pattern I could manipulate.

Any suggestions?  Size not important--it's for a smallish (22lbs) dog, I can adjust size.

thanks,
ModKatie

Here's pic of my sad, cold pup--we've moved to a much cooler climate, and even in the summer, she could use some added warmth--help the chilly dog!

This entire thread made me laugh so much, I've laughed up my morning coffee!  My grandma made those 'impaled Barbie" tp covers too!  As she really got into it, there were Theme Impaled Barbie TP covers--a little green dress and tam-o-sham for St. Pat's, a witch for Halloween, a Mrs. Claus, the list goes on!  Once, she even made a 'curtains' Scarlet of Gone with the Wind--that was our favorite, get it?-wind?!  Thanks for the memories, and the laughs!

Emma-

Thanks for the stiffening recipe!  I think that's the same method my Grandma used to make her crocheted snowflake ornaments, can't wait to try it!

I love the baby sweater--it looks almost like a mini-version of an adult shoulder-wrap? Is it worked continuously through the neck/front?

A pattern would be great if you can share. well done!

foufigirl--

thanks for the compliment, I just added the edging instructions above. If they are confusing, let me know--it's basically a 'Scallop Edging', you can find lots of instructions for this kind of thing in books and in online tutorials.

cheers,
ModKatie
