1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Star Pattern Help on: August 01, 2008 12:29:24 PM
Hello! I just have a quick question about a pattern that I'm having trouble reading. It's the same pattern for the stars made here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205045.0

The pattern is: http://shala-beads.livejournal.com/112315.html

My question is, in round 3, where it says "ch 1, sc in same stitch, dc, tr, dc in next st, *sc in next st, dc, tr, dc in next stitch* repeat**around, slip stitch to join (5 points started)," what does it mean to sc in the same stitch? Is it talking about the stitch you just chained 1 on? Or the next stitch? And is it saying to sc in the same stitch, THEN dc and tr and dc in the next stitch, or is it saying to sc, dc, and tr in the same stitch?

Thanks in advance for any help! Cheesy
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Elyse the Bear Amigurumi! (3 medium pics) on: July 27, 2008 07:59:13 PM
I am studying abroad in Japan and leaving in a month so my boyfriend requested I make him a "cuddle replacement" before I go. I found the cute Beary Jackson pattern by Rheatheylia and set to work. He named her Elyse after my middle name. Smiley

This project contained a lot of firsts for me! It was my first time making an amigurumi that required assembly...you can probably tell from the wonky limbs! Still getting the hang of sewing.

I also learned how to embroider (on felt, no less) so I could make her sweet and crooked face! It took me about 3 tries to get a face I liked, though. Cheesy

Elyse next to Tyler's big head for size reference. She's about 6 or 7 inches long. I only deviated from the pattern a little to make her limbs shorter. (Oh, and Tyler wants everyone to know he's very upset about getting his picture posted yet again on a craft forum Embarrassed).

I used Red Heart Soft Yarn for her body and Sugar n Cream for her ears, "paw palms," and feet bottoms. Thanks for looking and thank you so much, Rheatheylia, for your lovely and easy-to-follow pattern! I learned a lot from it. Cheesy
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 1st Crochet! Beanie + Ipod Cozy (4 pics) on: July 27, 2008 01:03:57 AM
First topic start! Ahhh!  Shocked I lurked for a very long time here, admiring everyone's work, and only now have the guts to post my humble completed crochet.

The first ever "real" thing I've made was a double crochet beanie for my boyfriend from the Happy Hooker book:

Here he is modeling it.

Goof! Notice how the hat color matches his pretty green eyes. Roll Eyes

It is quite wonky and the back part (not pictured) is especially lumpy, but it has seen a lot of good use and love.

3rd Generation Ipod Cozy:

Out of the sock.

In the sock!

I got him an 8gb nano as a graduation present and engraved the back with his name and under it, "A cunning linguist." Tongue Since he graduated with a B.A. in Linguistics. Anyway, I was hard-pressed to find a pattern to fit the new Ipod nanos but eventually I stumbled upon this baby, which gave me all I needed to know. The pattern calls for felting but I used Sugar n Cream yarn so I left it as is.

I am working on a lot of other stuff and will hopefully post again soon, but I just wanted to show off my ultra newbie creations.
