1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Unisex Jacket Pattern? on: March 18, 2012 07:08:06 PM
My search for an adult sized unisex jacket is not going very well. It's absolutely FRUSTRATING.

It's either vintage, womens, or some pattern that has insane amounts of details and such..

I just want a simple jacket that you can modify yourself to make it look how you want. Single color, one stitch. Not complicated. Pattern not hard to follow at all.

All the patterns I've found were for women and babies. Most of which wouldn't look well on men. And I've tried adjusting the patterns, but no dice.

So, craftser .. Help me out here. What is the simplest jacket pattern out there? And one that's easy to follow. This is just ridiculous. =\
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I need your help, crafsters! Pattern conversion. on: October 11, 2011 09:32:50 PM
So! I've come across a bit of a speed bump in my adventures.

Right now, for all the fitted beanies with designs on them, I use a H sized hook, which s 5.00 mm.

THEORETICALLY, I can make even bigger designs by doubling the size of the pattern and using a hook that's half the size of the one that I'm using now.

Is there any truth to my theory?

I'm currently looking for a hook that's 2.50 mm in size. The smallest one that I currently have is an E hook, which i don't not the size in mm.

Thanks for your help, craftsters!
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Street Fighter 4 Beanie on: October 11, 2011 02:56:35 AM
So, I have returned after not posting for the longest time.

I've ventured into the world o video game art and crafting. I stumbled upon the site called "Sprite Stitch," and realized I haven't done anything geek/video game related in a really long time. So, lately I've been using the time to make some video game inspired hats.

I really love video games, and know there are millions of people who love the culture and the whole community associated with them. So, if you're a gamer, you'll definitely appreciate the things I've been working on in the last week or so.

First on the list is Ken, from Street fighter 4. The sprite that I used is not mine; I just decided to put it on a beanie to see if it would fit:

The beanie is gigantic, unfortunately. I started the actual sprite on the row after I finished increasing to fit the beanie over my head. The back extends all the way to the back of my neck .. Ahah .. But it's still comfy and keeps my ears warm!

Let me know what you think!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Simple jacket pattern? on: September 07, 2011 01:54:15 AM
I've been searching Google, here, and everywhere that I could find that has a base pattern for a simple jacket, or even a coat.

However, all the patterns that I have found are not straightforward single crochet/double crochet stitches. The jackets have intricate patterns along then in the finished product .. However, I want my finish project to be ALL one stitch so I can ebroider my own logos and such onto the jacket when it's finished.

Thanks for the help!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mega Man brimmed beanie/hat! on: October 07, 2010 07:10:08 PM
I'm a huge Mega Man fan, and I'm sure a lot of video gamers here are. So I was a nerd over the weekend, and I created one. =D

I had to fix the brim because it was off center, but here's a good picture of it (I REALLY wish I could learn Tunisian stitching, because I heard that pixels come out perfectly with that kind of stitch):

And here's a video of me wearing it and taking about it (a little bit):

Hey, guys! I know I've commented on some of your guys' works, but now is the time for you to comment on mine!

I've only been crocheting for about a week, but I haven't been able to put my hook down. =D

Here's a two toned beanie I made for my niece as a present:

And here's the latest thing I've made, a two toned brimmed hat! (Please, if someone can confirm, didn't Bart Simpson have a similar colored hat in the series?)

My niece being silly with it:

Side view!

Thanks for looking at these guys! Can't wait to hear what you guys think!
