1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Q regarding crocheting around the post ?? on: December 18, 2005 12:03:40 PM
EDITTED: i'll keep it up.. maybe someone will answer soon

I don't know how to crochet around a post. Any tips?

the pattern says this:

Rnd 3 Working behind petals of Rnd 2, *ch 4, sc around the post of next sc 2 rnds below; repeat from * around 5 ch4-loops.

here's what I have so far.

throw blanket, took me quite a while..I want it larger though..but I can't find the tweed thread


my beret that i originally messed up like 3 times on. hahha finally. didn't like my face in the pic Tongue

scarf I made up from scratch, it came out really nice =)

sweater shawl I made, it was supposed to be a tunic top, but yea,,it all worked out lol.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / help with a beret pattern on: December 10, 2005 04:06:57 PM
I saw this pattern and it seems easy, but I think I've been making mistakes...patterns are still alittle tough for me lol.

1. I realized way too late that I've been crocheting in the front loop --am i supposed to crochet in both?
2. it looks like a giant pizza and I'm not brain surgeon but I don't think it's supposed to be this huge lol.

this is the pattern from the Lion Brand website


16 sc = 4" (10 cm). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

Ch 4. Sc in 4th ch from hook to form ring. Sc in rnds until piece measures 3" from beg. Inc to 6 sts in last rnd. Place marker for beg of rnd.

Inc 6 sts evenly spaced. Repeat last rnd until there are 144 sts.

Dec 6 sts evenly spaced. Repeat last rnd until 72 sts remain.
Join with slip st, turn work inside out. With WS facing, work 5 rnds even.

Tie topknot with an overhand knot. Tack end in place to underside of knot. Pull beret over 9" dinner plate. Lightly damp, allow to dry thoroughly. Weave in ends.

so....I thought it seemed simple but now I think it's all wrong...
what do they mean by 16 stiches = 4 inches? 16 stitches in a circle shape equals 4 inches?
should I just start over or should I look for another pattern that might be better/easier?
im so lost, thanks for any feedback =)

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / creme colored belt from scratch on: October 13, 2005 07:32:35 AM
I free handed this belt with this plastic type yarn, can't find the wrapping. But I think it came out better than the first one I tried to do lol

forgot to add...for the buckle area (thoigh it's not really a buckle), I crocheted around two hoops that I had laying around from some bangle-esque earrings.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Am I knitting the wrong way? on: October 09, 2005 10:55:43 AM
I picked up knitting maybe 2 summers ago, I learned from websites and never had anyone tell me whether I was doing it correctly...then I started crochetting more..so now that I've come back to knitting scarves...I see that I'm yarning over the way others do nor do I insert the needle the same exact way (I was looking at stitchguide.com) ..Is there a wrong way to knit? I'm wondering because if it'll make a difference in how my scarves n etc look, I'd like to get comfy with the right way.
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / i got rid of my left over yarn - i crocheted a round throw blanket on: September 24, 2005 10:41:35 AM
figured I might as well do something with it..even if the colors are slightly horrendous  and don't match Shocked



a plus is , this gave me and idea fora shrug I'd like to make next week
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I can crochet...but reading patterns is intimidating on: September 05, 2005 10:31:07 AM
I've been crocheting for over a year now but I don't really know how to read patterns or follow them correctly. I do freehand stuff cause patterns look long and confusing. I guess brushing up on abbreviations and stitches will help but how long did it take before you could really follow a pattern?
I was brave last night, and I tried to make this flower pin..and I had no idea what they meant by 'in loop"..so I winged it for round 1 and stopped after round 2 (this looked simple to me..very simple..but I didn't know if I was doing it right so I just stopped..flower is still pretty though lol)
the bolded part was also like chickenscratch to me lol..

Leaving a long lenth of tail for sewing,ch 4,sl st to form ring.
Rnd 1:Ch 1,(sc in loop,ch 3)6 times.Join with sl st to first sc(6 loops).
Rnd 2:Ch 1,in each loop,work(sc,ch 1,3 dc,ch 1,sc).Do not join.(6 petals).
Rnd 3:Ch 2,sl st in back stitches of second dc on first petal of Rnd 1.Ch 5(sl st in back stitches of second dc of next petal,ch 5)5 times.Do not join.(6 ch-5 loops).
Rnd 4:In each ch-5 loop,work(sl st,ch 2,6 dc,ch 2,sl st).Fasten off,weave in end.

any tips would so greatly appreciated!
