41  Re: How Do I Make A Crochet "P@t Leaf" in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by dansk on: December 02, 2004 10:06:39 AM
Here is a link I found that shows how to crochet holly leaves: http://www.craftown.com/xmascrochet/pat6.htm. I think with some modification you can make this pattern work by making the middle one longer and adding a few more short ones to the sides.

I was trying to make a leaf for a rosette the other day and my experiment looked too pointy for a rose but may be perfect for what you want. Here are some rough directions:

Ch 20, tr in the 4th ch down, tr in next 5 ch, dc in next 5 ch, sc in next 3 ch, sl stitch in next 2 (now you have finished one side and will work down the other)
Ch 3, sl stitch in next 2 ch, sc in next 4, dc in next 4, tc in next 5, sl stitch in the 3 chain of the first side. Done!

I think this would work for the middle leaf. For the other little leaves try chaining 15 and just using double and single crochets. Sew them together in formation on your blanket. For the stem I would chain to the length you want and then single crochet down the chain and back, then sew that down below the leaf to your blanket.

Here is a picture of what the big leaf would look like (obviously yours would be green !)

If you need it to be longer just block it and stretch the hell out of it! Good luck Big_Worm!

And to all of those who might be thinking of posting some nasty response to this thread, give it a rest. I will not respond to that kind of thing.

Here is an overall picture of the cape with approximate dimensions in inches. Bumblebee weighs about 24 pounds if that helps you figure out how to adjust it to your dog.

Sometimes I put it on her backwards from the first photo I posted,with the flap up by her neck folded over, and that looks just as cute. That is how I originally designed it but it looks good either way!

I'm so glad you guys like it!

43  Doggie Cape in Knitting: Completed Projects by dansk on: December 01, 2004 10:58:55 AM
Surprisingly, this is probably the best thing I have ever made. Bumblebee (my black pug) is always cold in the winter and none of the doggie sweaters from stores fit her because of her barrel chest. She also doesn't like sleeves at all! So I decided to knit my own cape for her from some scrap yarn I purchased at a thrift store.

It is pretty much a long rectangle except at the tail end where it is narrower (imagine a long rectangle with a smaller square attached one end). It is garter stitch & I crocheted the ties onto the cape once I was done. There are ties at the neck and another set that tie under her belly. For the collar I just fold the top down.

Everytime I would sit down to work on this Bumblebee sat right next to me watching. I swear that dog knew it was for her and sat completely still when I would measure it on her.

When she isn't feeling well she wants her cape, like today. It makes me feel pretty good that she has become so attached to something so simple that I made.

44  Super Red Mom Slippers in Knitting: Completed Projects by dansk on: November 30, 2004 09:11:49 PM
I just finished these slippers for my mother-in-law. The slipper itself is knitted and the flowers I crocheted and then stitched on. The flowers kind of look like wings or butterflies. I call it the "Mercury Effect"!

Kind of a weird color combo but I am trying to use what I have on hand!

45  Reindeer Puzzle Ornaments (complete w/ photos) in Winter Holidays by dansk on: November 28, 2004 04:50:45 PM
Here are easy ornaments you can make out of that puzzle that is missing a few pieces.

Take three puzzle pieces that are shaped like a double cross and paint them brown. Glue two of the pieces at an angle behind the top of the third piece. Glue on googly eyes, and a pompon for a nose. I used a hot glue gun to attach a green ribbon loop to the back of mine.

I made a set of these for my sister-in-law for Christmas last year. She has four kids so I painted each of their names (mom and dad's too) on one of the antlers of a reindeer. They loved them!

There is a nice pattern for crocheted rosettes on Lion's website. http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/lionbrand/index.fcgi?page=http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/chs-rosettes.html

Here is my first attempt.
