I've never heard of using a different hook for the foundation chain. That's an interesting idea because then the tension will feel the same to me (and thus be more consistent), but the stitches will be easier to work with. I'll definitely have to give that a try too!

I've read about the foundation chain and first row together thing before but never tried it. Maybe I should! Back loop is a good idea too 'cause it's easier to work with and then the fabric looks the same on both ends. I'll definitely try your suggestions on some practice pieces and see how it turns out.
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Folding-Brim Hat with Flower on: March 25, 2013 01:15:29 PM
This didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. It's a simple rib-stitch hat, but I decided to add some fpdc/bpdc ribs in one section. I screwed up the count when I tried to switch back to the rib stitches, so it's a little lopsided. The edge is a hdc scallop/shell. I used Milky Whey yarn (which is a 50/50 blend of milk and soy), which is very soft. It isn't really a warm yarn though, so this hat will probably be better for someone with lots of hair. The yarn didn't act as I had expected though, so the hat is a little limp. All in all I wouldn't say this was a successful project, although I'm usually my own worst critic.

This is lovely! I've made dream catchers out of leather and sinew, and I don't think they were half as pretty as this one. What a great way to use a doily!

I've seen those scrubbies for sale and even recognized that they were crocheted, but I never got around to finding a pattern for them. Thanks for sharing!

I love the way the bottom drapes. Great dye job, too!
28  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Foundation Chain Consistency on: March 24, 2013 04:25:45 PM
I've been crocheting for a few years now, but one thing that's always bothered me is that I have a hard time keeping my foundation chain and first few rows the same tightness as the rest of the project. I tend to keep the chain loose so that it's easier to work with, but then once I get a few rows down my stitches tend to tighten up. Does anyone else have this problem, or have any suggestions on how I can stop this bad habit?

I would never have thought to make one of these. Now I can't wait to go get the right kind of yarn for it! Thanks for the idea!

This is so silly! The Batman symbol looks great. What kind of yarn did you use? I'll bet acrylic undies would be... abrasive.
