1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / My messy edges on: July 13, 2007 01:50:22 PM

I'm curious to know what technques people like for knitting the edge of a piece.  My edges are always a mess!  When it's an edge that will get sewn to another edge I can hide it but sometimes there are projects that show your edge and mine are embarrasing! 
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lola's First Blankey on: April 16, 2007 08:45:09 AM
This is the first time I've posted an actual finished project on Craftster!  

This is a blanket I made for my new Pug puppy Lola (hence the Laverne style 'L').  It was peed on within about 30 mins of having given it to her  Embarrassed

It's a mix of knit and crochet but since the bulk of it is knit I decided to put it here.  The edging was done with a shell crochet and the 'L' was done the way the anarchy sign is done in The Happy Hooker pattern for the anarchy hat.

3  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Logistics of the Corset Belt on: June 19, 2006 03:34:45 PM
I went out and got some Lamb's pride (I love that yarn!  oh the colours!) and sat down to make myself the corset belt.  I figured out the crossed double crochet I think but I'm a bit troubled about the number of stitches in the pattern.  I'm doing the size 38 (which admittedly I'm not sure of.  I measured my hips rather than my waist since it's more of a hip belt but it does talk about waiste measurements... this is not the main problem though).  So you start with 128 chains, then you do a sc into the second chain from the hook and go all the way along until you are done.  this leaves you with 127 sc stitches.  Here's where I get confused.  From what I see each crossed dc takes two stitches in the chain, but since we have an odd number of stitches (127) won't we be left with an extra stitch at the end?  In fact it says to make 63 crossed double crochets which would only take 126 sc stitches.  Then after the first crossed dc row you are supposed to single crochet into 127 stitches... which means we do still need that odd stitch at the end of the crossed dc row.  I'm pretty new to crochet (so far all I have made is a simple had and a long skinny scarf) so I am probably just missing something!   Huh
