1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / How-to make J.Crew necklace on: January 11, 2009 09:00:45 AM

I don't bead much, so I don't know if this is a simple project or not (but it looks like it might just involve some knots):http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/WomenBrowse/Women_Shop_By_Category/jewelry/necklaces/PRDOVR~11488/11488.jsp.  Does anyone know how I might make this (I have the ribbon and end pieces figured out, just not the necklace part)? What makes the beads turn in different directions? Are there extra knots or is it more complicated than that? Also, what kind of string might be appropriate to use?

Thanks for all your help!
2  Florida / Florida: Central / Sugar Skulls? Tampa? on: October 17, 2006 08:30:20 AM

I wanted to make sugar skulls for Dia de los muertos, but I really don't want to buy the molds online (even though I may have to resort to this if I can't find them locally). Does anyone know of anywhere in the greater-Tampa area where I could purchase some molds?

You look so cute together and I love how you both match with the lime green. Great job on the dress!

They are both lovely---especially the second one. That fabric is fabulous. 

btw, I tried to find the pattern (since I loved it so) but the McCall's website said that combination doesn't exist. Is there another number for the pattern, by chance?

Beautiful dress! You and your man look good together!

Oh! I was thinking that I would add three and only take away two. No wonder it didn't make sense. Thanks!

Thanks for the encouragement...I thought I had been regularly doing the skips, but maybe that's the solution. Will that (the skips) really make up for the additional 3 sc/dc that you add every 20-ish stitches? When I was trying to figure out where I went wrong, I thought maybe it was that, but it seems like you're still adding more than you're taking away. Am I just nuts? Lips sealed

So I thought I'd make my sister a blanket, but I'm having some trouble.  Just for the record, this is only my third or fourth crocheted thing ever...
So the pattern is http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/cja-cray.html and it is a beginner pattern, but for some reason I can't follow it. As far as I can tell, I am following the instructions, but what's happening is the increases are taking over so that I am now crocheting way more stitches than I originally chained.


As you can see from the pictures, instead of the edge being straight, it is getting wider. You can also see that the original 10 stitches leading up to the three dc/sc in one stitch are now something like 15 or 17 stitches. What have I done wrong? How can I fix this? Should I start over? GAARRR!!! (sound of me ripping my hair out)
