2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help with pattern in Crochet! Warm and Cozy Crochet Magazine... on: November 10, 2012 12:09:02 AM
So, I've been working on only the first part of this pattern because I seem to be decreasing. Here is the first part of the pattern:

cable panel (over 42 sts; rep of 24 rows)

Row 1 (RS): Ch 43, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each of the next 19 chs, dc in each of the next 4 chs, sc in each of the next 4 ch, dc in each of th next 4 chs, sc in each of the last 10 chs, turn (42 sts)

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn.

(This is where I get lost)
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in each of the first 19 st, fpdc around each of the next 2 dc 2 rows below, sk next 2 sc on the last row (always skip single crochet behind each front post double crochet), sc in ech of next 2 sc, rep from 3 times, ending last rep at ** in each of last 9 sc, turn.

Row 4: Rep row 2.

So this is where I get lost Row 3 when I fpdc, its not always around a dc since i have to skip 2 sc in the previous row. so its fpdc, fpdc - sk 2 sc - fpdc (around dc), fpdc (around sc). (make sense?) And at the end of Row 3, it is not specified how many sts there should be left because its seems to be decreasing, however, this whole part needs to be repeated 5 more times. I thought I had it, but I dont. Anyone have the pattern? Anyone willing to help me out?
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Purse Organizer on: July 11, 2011 07:26:26 AM
I've been looking at getting one since my hubs says I have so many purses I need something to transfer things better.

I think it might take me a while as I am not sewing machine friendly, but I have some old scraps of fabric I could possibly use.

Thanks for the pattern link!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is acrylic really that bad? on: July 08, 2011 11:04:50 PM
Yes, a $40 skein of silk yarn would be nice, but you can buy 10ish skeins of acrylic yarn. Super Savers run a little less than 3 a pop and those are great for amigurumi! However, I wouldn't recommend it for clothing.

BTW, if there is a Michael's around you, they're having a 2 for $5 sale right now on super savers, Vanna's Choice and Simply Soft until July 16th.

Initially, I thought this post was about acrylic hooks which is what I hate!
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Trouble working in row's instead of spirals....please help! on: July 08, 2011 05:38:28 PM
When I have to work in rows, I count stitches. So if the project I'm doing has 14 stitches across I count 14, chain 1 in last stitch worked and crochet in same stitch (count 1) and then count until I have the correct amount of stitches. I find when I do this, I don't get that wave and it becomes more of a straight line.

Hope that helped, too!

I stay true to my MAC brushes, but I do LOVE Sonia Kashuk brushes. I've bought arts & crafts store brushes. The maxine mops work best and the ideal ones to use for all over are 1/2 and 1/4 inch. As the person above me said, they are very affordable and work just the same.
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Squid Advice? on: June 28, 2011 08:01:23 PM
I found this Amigurumi squid that I think is the cutest that I've found, but I don't quite know how to start it? I think I'm just going to start by the fins (is that what they're called?) and work my way up decreasing though I know its started from the top then making a second piece to the bottom.

Anyone know of a less "cutting & pasting" way? Thanks in advanced.

Since I'm a noob, here is the link to the picture:

I found those cupcakes, too, and I'm DYING to learn how to do that swirling icing. I've tried to figure it out, and while it turns out well at first, it ends up being flat in the end.

Update: I found a SIMILAR pattern which I downloaded and forgot where I downloaded it from. I modified it a bit to give myself the swirl. I chained 4, 6 hdc in 2nd loop from hook, sl st into first hdc, 2 hdc in each hdc backloop and continue to increase until desired size. when you get to that size you want, slip stitch all the way to the top. It turned out well, but some parts of the increase, I sc rather than hdc or dc, so just remember to stay consistent. I hope that works for you.
