1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Intarsia Question (Pretty In Punk Pattern) on: August 14, 2009 02:53:39 PM
Okay so I am trying to do the God Save The Queen hat and I know how to do intarsia in the middle of a piece but I've never cast on with separate balls right from the beginning.  I'm not sure how to keep the colors together as one piece.  For example the red stripe in the middle is practically a separate piece from any of the rest of the hat (no overlap of color), if I were to continue knitting it I think I would end up with a chunk of red unattached to the rest of the hat.  I'm beyond confused but I'm determined to do this hat. I checked all of my books but none of them have a hint for this particular type of graph.  Also the cast on I experimented with was just the basic loop cast on, should I use the long tail?  If anyone has any hints of advice that would be amazing.  I tried to search for help with this but nothing came up so even if you know of another thread that answers this... =]  Thank you so much in advance.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Flapper Style Hat on: March 05, 2009 11:56:55 PM
So i got to go yarn shopping today =]
It was a good time.  I've wanted to make a hat.
This is my 3rd ever crochet project! And first non- amigurumi.

He's a little fat so his jacket didn't fit nicely =[
I need to learn to be more consistent in my stitch sizes.  In due time, I say.

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My first ever crochet project =] on: February 28, 2009 09:34:45 AM
So last monday I taught myself how to crochet using nexstitch... it took about an hour to get the basics down.
I understood some concepts because I learned to knit when i was 9 (i'm 18 now).  I've known about craftster for a while but pretty much just started crafting again recently (I went through some stressful stuff and I kinda lost myself and forgot what I loved so much about crafting).
So I figured I'd join because the community here is so great, and I can't get enough!

The pattern is from creepy cute crochet and the finished piece stands at just under 4 inches high.
I was originally making it for my sister to give to a friend for her bday but i was a little too late (I started it the night before)

I ran into a lot of problems in the process of creating this (my bad for picking an intermediate ami for my first project) but I'm happy with the result.

(I can't figure out how to sew the head on though... so it's currently just resting on the body)

His current state of decapitation =[ :

EDIT- I used Vanna's Choice and an E hook (B for the detailing)
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Creepy Cute Crochet Question on: February 27, 2009 10:57:22 AM
I solved the first question I was asking here, but now I have another.  In some of the instructions it says:
row8 sc19 flip
row9 sc19 flip

Is flipping it just turning it and going back over the 19?

It's in the round so i'm not sure... i'm doing the shoulders for the robot.

Nevermiiind I figures it all out... of course I have one more question but I think i'll just try to tackle it on my own since that seemed to work the past two times.
