1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / DIY tunisian crochet patterns on: February 21, 2012 07:25:04 AM
Hey there ladies,

I was wondering, how do you go about making your own patterns for Tunisian crochet projects. I'm having problems trying to understand directions online by using either photoshop or microsoft excel.

I'm trying to create a 64x64 8 bit pattern.

Would you guys have your own methods or tips and tricks to share?
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Tunisian/Afghan Questions: Carrying along? on: March 07, 2010 12:42:36 AM
Hey there,

I finally figured out how to change colors, now I"m curious as to carrying along.

I really don't like having those long pieces of string behind my work, but I'm guessing thats how it works?

Would anyone be kind enough to give instructions or examples or a video on it?

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Tunisian Graphs! 8-bit crochet? on: July 02, 2009 06:53:59 PM
Hello there!

I was wondering if anyone could tell me how people are crocheting those awesome NES characters. I have a vague idea using graphs. Could anyone be kind enough to elaborate.

I figured I could use a cross stitch chart to go by, but I'm very skeptical. I've been practicing Tunisian for about 3 days now, and I wanna get my hands on a project lol.

I found this :


Would these possibly work?
6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Amigurumi Designs? on: December 08, 2008 01:47:03 AM
 ;DHello there!

Uh, I wanted to ask, how do you craftsters out there design your amigurumi?

For me, well I look at books and others' designs to get ideas.
Sad part is that I never have the courage enough to make my own. I like to study and try to figure it out, but eh..
I dunno.

So, I wanted to know. How do you guys do it? What tips and tricks do you have to share to amateurs?

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Queen Anne Lace Scarf Help! on: November 16, 2008 12:09:36 AM
Hey there....

Um, I tried to make this scarf from http://1craftyboy.wordpress.com/2007/12/11/okey-dokey/
And well, it didn't come out as well as I expected. Could someone rewrite these or explain. I got lost on the second part XD....

Ah well...

Queen Annes Lace Scarf:

I used 1 skein of Red Heart Super Saver in Shocking Pink and a size J hook

Chain 6 and join into a ring.

1: Chain 3,work 13 dc into ring. DO NOT JOIN! Chain 1,turn. Work a sc into next 2 dc. *Chain 4,sc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * five more times (6 loops). Chain 6,turn.

2: Slip stitch into the 1st free ch4 loop. Chain 3,turn. Work 13 dc into the ch6 loop. Slip stitch into the the 1st sc of the 1st motif,chain 1,turn. Sc in next 2 dc. *Chain 4,sc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * five more times (6 loops). Chain 6,turn.

3: Slip stitch in 1st free ch4 loop of adjoining motif,chain 3,turn. Work 13 dc into ch6 loop. Slip stitch in next free ch4 loop of adjoining motif,chain 1,turn. Sc in next 2 dc. *Chain 4,sc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * five more times (6 loops). Slip stitch into next free ch4 loop of adjoining motif. Chain 6,turn.

4:Repeat step 3 for desired scarf length. I worked a total of 50 motifs and got a 60 inch scarf. End off and weave in ends.

This pattern can be done with just about any yarn,but I wouldnt recommend a boucle or textured yarn,as that would take away from the lacy effect.
9  UNITED STATES / Hawaii / Eyeballs to Spare? on: November 14, 2008 05:56:21 AM
Hey there!

Anyone on Oahu can direct me to a place where I can buy or purchase those eyeballs used in dolls and amigurumi? I don't have a way to buy them online, so I was hoping someone had some to spare.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Looking For Stocking/Japanese Leg Warmer Patterns on: October 25, 2008 06:48:27 AM
Hey there!

I'm looking for crocheted stockings. I saw a really neat thigh high one online somewhere but I can't seem to find it. Every time I try to type stocking or legwarmer, I get the retro 80s versions..
