21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Man's Hat / Neck warmer thing on: February 14, 2006 04:19:49 PM
That pattern from Knitty is way cool, I love it!  For my husband, definitely not the pink, though Smiley.  I want to make one for myself and my two daughters now, too bad we live in Las Vegas and would only wear it the once a year we go sledding up in the mountains.  Maybe I'll make one for my aunt in Maine...

Thank you so much for all three of those patterns, they're all very helpful!  I'm looking to make a somewhat looser version I think, but they will definitely help with my design ideas!  I'll post a picture when it's done.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.  Like I said, I'm not an artist, but I love making beautiful things by whatever means I can.  I can't wait to do my kitchen window now, it faces the side of my neighbors house about four feet away, I've always wanted to plant some vines to cover the window, but that side of the house doesn't get any sunlight, so now maybe I'll paint some vines and flowers!

I can't claim responsibility for the brilliant idea of using crochet to make a nursing cover- I got the idea from a pattern on Crochet me- Just A Little Privacy Wrap (http://www.crochetme.com/Apr_May_2005/patt_privacy_wrap.html).  After making that pattern for one friend, I had the idea of making something that was more narrow in the middle so that it's easier to carry around in a diaper bag.  It's definitely cute enough to just wear, but you may not want to wear it with every outfit every day.  And it doesn't do any good to have this wonderful cover if you don't have it with you when you need it.  I thought it was a brilliant idea, but I tried to sell one like this on eBay twice and got no takers.  Oh well...

I can't find a pattern for what I want anywhere, probably because I can't figure out what to call it.  I want something my husband can pull over his head, that comes down and covers his neck, too, kind of like a long ski mask only with the whole face part open.  Does that make any sense?  I was going to crochet him a hooded scarf, but I got to thinking that the whole long scarf part just adds bulk, and you have to mess with the scarf coming undone, etc.  So why not just the hood part, only connected at the bottom to stay in place around the neck.  I'll probably just end up winging it, but I thought I'd see if anyone else has already invented the wheel.

I made this for a friend who wanted a littke nursing privacy, but wanted her baby to be able to breathe:

Thanks so much for this idea! My budget is really limited and I get so annoyed watching home improvement and diy shows where the materials are SO expensive, this idea is beautiful and cheap and easily changed if you get tired of it.  I don't rent but my husband never wants me to do anything permanantly weird to the house that would hurt its resale value:) So anyway, here's what I did with this idea, I'm not at all as artistic as Aliastriona, I found this template for stained glass making on the internet, blew it up and tiled it in Open Office Calc, then taped it to the outside of the window and followed the lines.  It's in my little girls' bedroom, they wanted something for Valentine's decorations:

I forgot to add, it's 3 ft wide, and a little more than three feet tall, and even with three little "helpers", I did the painting part in under an hour.
