1  Re: Does anyone know this stitch? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Chaychay on: July 03, 2011 08:44:56 AM
It is adorable! And a riddle that wouldn't let me sleep until I solved it. I tried and tried.... and I think I found it! (or at least my results looks similar ^^)

I think goldfishpollywog was right. Its just not number 430 but number 426. I think the center is made with this cluster stitch and the boarder with the same stitch, just not in a cluster. Its basically a halfdouble crochet that is pulled really high.

Here is my result:

The center is made of 4 clusters of 5 stitches each, with 4 ch in between. The "petals" are 10 (really loose and high) hdc in the 4 ch of the row 1. (one petal has only 5 stitches, I hoped that you could see the stitches better that way)
Now I suck at crocheting loosely so its not as neat as it might be and I guess in your example the stitches are pulled even higher then mine (they are about 4 ch high) but they are really fluffy and not twirled like dc or tc would be.

2  How to create a boarder around an object? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Chaychay on: June 24, 2011 06:54:44 AM
I got this little batch made of soft plastic and I want to make a heart shaped boarder around it. The original batch is not exactly heart shaped, so i cant just work around it i guess. The whole thing is maybe 5cm in diameter.
I dont have a camera but I found the same batch on a blog, check here: http://img.blogs.yahoo.co.jp/ybi/1/0c/19/momoca_9/folder/1507280/img_1507280_56612573_0?1221804527.jpg

I figured I could make small stitches around the the boarder and crochet through them. But how to make it heart shaped?

Thanks for your help!
