WHAO!  I haven't been on here in a WHILE!  COOL! I'm awesome!

Sadly I never did get the time to make more skull bowls. Student teaching was crazy! I really really wanted one for myself too.  :-(    Ah well. I have some white stoneware left, I'll just have to wait until I get a job at a school with a kiln.

Definitely practice explaining the steps. Break it down as much as possible. You would be surprised by just how many motions are involved in a single or double crochet.
Handouts with big pictures would be good.

If it's for an art class final/ art show, I would stay away from overly cutesy stuff. Simple is good, make a lot of them (strawberries or acorns) and assemble them in an interesting way. Try making different sized ones by using different gauge hooks and yarn. If you really want them to have faces, give them different expressions based on how you assemble them together. like is a really big acorn squishing a tiny one? are the strawberries afraid because something is about to eat them?     Smiley
Good luck with your final!

I just tried out what you described real quick with some Caron simply soft and a 5mm hook.
It's in between a dc and triple crochet in height. It's definitely different looking. It would prob look cool in a really chunky yarn. Kudos to your man for being creative with a new skill!.  :-)

someone took my hat off the bust and replaced it with a crappy santa hat a few weeks ago. LAME!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tapestry crochet...tunisian or sc? on: December 26, 2010 10:13:11 AM
I prefer sc. If you are making something in rows, it'll be fine. But if you are working in the round, like on a hat, the graphic will look like it leans slightly.
It just doesn't seem practical to me to do anything bigger than a scarf with tunisian crochet. And I also don't care for the feel of the stitch. Embarrassed

That's such an interesting technique! It looks like it makes a thick fabric too. I'll have to play around with this! Thanks for posting it.

There are quite a few cowl patterns on ravelry, but it's also fairly easy to just make one up as you go, with what ever stitch you are comfortable with. If crocheting in the round or joining is confusing, you can just crochet a straight rectangle piece (like a mini scarf) and then sew the ends together when its as thick as you want it to be.
