111  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: i'm complaining... on: December 28, 2004 03:47:34 PM
Just to warn you... I posted that link up.  Careful with his directions.  They are somewhat vague Tongue  And... he posted these, like, 3 years ago and his email is no longer valid.

But... I love his hats.  I've made two.  just giving the heads up.

What he means is to increase a total of 7 more stitches evenly spaced for
the whole row.
Row 2: 2 sc in each so that the total number of stitches increases to 14
Since I've done tons of these hats and he doesn't explain it well, The way I
do the increases so that you increase equal amounts each row is this:
Row 2: 2 sc in each stitch
Row 3: 1 sc in each
Row 4: *1 sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next stitch Repeat all the way around
Row 5: 1 sc in each
Row 6: *1 sc in next 2 stitches. 2 sc in next st. Repeat all the way around.
Row 7: 1 sc in each
Row 8 * 1 sc in next 3 stitches. 2 sc in next st. Repeat all the way around.
I increase rows until it fits the top of the head.. (Usually these 8 rows)
The next rows I do 1 sc in each until it's the size I want. I usually keep
going enough that I can fold the bottom up to double it up for a cuff.
This hat only takes a couple hours and should look pretty similar to the one
he makes. The problem with his pattern is you have to do the math to figure
out how to evenly space 7 stitches each row for the increase. It would have
been better if he told you how many sc in each and then when to do 2 in one
for the increase.

I, too, get frustrated.  Just seems like there are so many more patterns out there to knit rather than crochet.

But, for now, I really want to stick with Crochet.  It has been strongly present in my Irish family history and also...  the projects work up so fast!
I started a month ago and was able to make an afgan in a weekend, a bedspread in a week (big enough to top a full size bed), 2 hats, a yoga mat bag, several scarves...
and I still have a ton of projects that I want to do!
Most of my friends that knit take 3x's as long as I do to finish a project... and most of them have been knitting for years.

I wish that the Stitch 'n' Bitch Nation book had more crochet in it.
And some of those "hip" crochet patterns are really not hip at all.

Ah, well.
I'm destined to be a different kid.

A friend of mine told me these worked up well... http://www.knitting-crochet.com/crochet/antbalsli.html
she did them all in one color.
These are the ones I'm going to try:

Also, in the completed projects Myloveasdeep just made some freakin' rockin' bunny slippers that I can't wait to try Smiley

I will try both and let you know how it goes. 

Good luck.  Keep us posted!

(ok, yeah... little too excited...)
I have been looking around on here and trying various slipper patterns http://home.inreach.com/marthac/slippers.html
and I really wanted to make my friend some Bunny Slippers.  I was planning on making these:
and just adding a bunny on each one. like this :

But, I'm not very advanced with crochet, so I was worried about making a mess out of it. Plus, your's has cute floppy ears!

I'm really thrilled that you made such a perfectly timed and just plain ADORABLY AWESOME pattern Tongue 
Your slippers are great and I'm really impressed that you just winged 'em!
Yer super-talented!

Take care - and thanks again.  I will share the pics with you when they are finished! You rock!
