21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / geekmagnet hat ... thick n warm! on: December 04, 2004 12:32:57 PM
uhh ... i hope it's ok that i'm starting a new thread with this pattern because it's not mine.

GeekMagnet posted it on another thread in the future projects section

I have the perfect answer! dont make a hat in the round, crochet vertically.  I searched for the perfect hat pattern for a while befor i found one that i liked.  It's really easy and looks great. You can't even tell that they are vertical rows, everyone thinks it's made in rounds. 
Thick and Warm Hat
Worked with two strands of 4 ply worsted yarn held together. 
Hint: each row will always start in single crochet and end in double crochet. If it doesnt start pulling stitches.

Ch 31- if making adjustments, KEEP THIS NUMBER ODD!! Chain should be around 9 inches for adult hat.
Row 1: sc in second ch form hook, dc in next st; repeat sc, dc pattern to end, ending with dc; ch 1 turn 30 sts
Row 2: Sc in first st, dc in next (pattern made); repeat pattern to end, ending with dc; ch 1 turn
Row 3: Repeat pattern for next 28 sts (or two sts from the end) ending with dc; ch 1 turn- 28 sts in row
Row 4: Repeat row 2
Row 5: Repeat pattern for next 28 sts, drop down to Row2 sc in next st, dc in last st; ch 1 turn- 30 sts in row
Repeat Rows 2-5 until widest end is 21 or to fit, most peoples heads are the same size, so if it fits you it should be good and yarn stretches.
Finishing:  Fasten off and whipstitch back seam together.  Weave yarn through shorter top edge of hat and gather tightly. Knot. Fold up end for brim of hat. TADA! Congratulations, Project complete

and here's mine! early christmas gift for the boy ... i lost his old hat so i couldn't really make him wait til christmas!


i'm going to add a brim of a different yarn because i used a pretty itchy wool. then it will reach over his ears.

this is a really good, really easy pattern that makes a great shape.

have y'all seen this? seems like a quick and easy way to sell a few things for people who don't have a huge business venture in mind. or a good way to test items and pricing.

23  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: Hand warming device Crochetalong (with pattern link) on: December 01, 2004 05:56:57 PM
yay! we are going to do a crochetalong ...
ummm ... i have to admit i don't quite know what this entails, except that we get to all work on this really cool project, and show what ours looks like.

i am going to buy yarn this weekend. the gloves in the picture on that link look sorta bulky, so i might make mine a sportweight instead. which is the first reason will not come out right!

i think i might keep the mitten tops. i think they are kind of cute!

yay! i am excited for this project!

25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / old matchbook = photo flip book on: April 25, 2004 05:41:15 PM
this is a fun & quick thing to do.

tutorial is simple:
1-find a cool matchbook (the hardest part!)
2-take out the staple from the matches, unfold, and measure the size the pictures will need to be. leave a little room at the top for the fold not to interfere.
3-cut the photos (photo booth pictures work best b/c you're already in a series of movements that is flip-book-ey). i found that staggering the thumb end just slightly made them flip more smoothly.
4-re-staple. ta da!
26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / what glue for photos? on: March 24, 2004 03:50:36 PM
i want to make a set of glass marble magnets featuring my friends' heads, using photographs.
before i go ruining all my pictures, my question is, what type of glue is good to bond the FRONT of the photo and still keep it looking perty?
decoupage glue?
27  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / improve your ice cubes on: March 21, 2004 05:02:04 PM
sadly, this is not my idea. oh how i wish i could claim to be such a genius!

when you make ice for a party, throw a little hunk o' lemon (or lime) in each block. give it a little squeeze as you go, but don't mangle it.

then pop one in a drink with the regular ice, and it's extra super!
