1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: It's impossible to find a pattern for a stitch like this! RAWG RAWG! on: December 14, 2007 06:33:21 AM
There are some things that knitting does that crochet simply cannot, and vice-versa.  This is one of those instances.  I agree with the braided cable suggestion of the pp...it would be quite effective.  I think it would be easier to learn to knit it than to try and find a way to force crochet to do it.  Good luck!  I think it's an awesome hat!  It sort of reminds me of the ones the kids were wearing on "Kid Nation"
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can anyone tell me how/what this might be? on: November 21, 2007 02:32:25 PM
I was commissioned by a family member to crochet together an entire storage tub of those flowers a couple of years back!  One of my Grandfather's sisters had made all of the flowers on the loom planning to make an afghan from them (she'd made several others) but started slipping with dementia and couldn't remember how to do it.  I consider myself an intermediate to advanced crocheter...I've never attempted a project that I couldn't do...but I have to tell you that putting those flowers together was a real pain!  The pattern she gave me had you reverse crochet them together, and changing rows was really tricky.  Once you finish several rows it gets easier, and the pattern listed above looks a bit easier than the one I was using.

We had LOTS of daisies leftover after the afghan was finished, even though I made it into a king size, so I decided to use the leftovers as a base for granny squares.  I just did basic shell stitches into the petal loops & added corners...it was SUPER simple!  I wound up making those squares into a baby blanket, and it was much more attractive than the blanket I'd made with the chain stitch joining method.  Just thought I'd put that idea out there!

My favorite fruit hat pattern is by Ann Norling...worth the few bucks!  I've used mine more times than I can count, and it came with color photographs.

Do you sell any of your work?  If not, you totally need an etsy shop.  I think it's all amazing!

Does it come with instructions on how to make that dashing matching hair bow?  Cheesy

As a child of the 80s, I'm horrified to see that 80s clothing is back in style. I spent 10 years trying to forget that I ever wore tapered leg pants with zippers on the ankles. Although, I did rock my neon rainbow zebra-printed bike shorts in '89!

I'm right there with you...I REFUSE to wear those "skinny jeans" that were so popular this past fall, because they remind me too much of the days when I either zippered or tight-rolled my pants around my ankles.  Had to be sure I showed off those three colors of slouch socks & my LA Gears. 

I never, EVER wore any freaking diaper shorts though!

Great stuff guys!  I'm loving all these soft, springtime colors.  Here are my skeins from this week.  They are all wool & mohair blended...I loooove me some mohair!





Have a great weekend Smiley

are you sure that's the right number for the pattern?  I searched it on google & found some reaaallly ugly pattern under that number instead.

I LOVE the top!  You did a great job!  Gathers always give me trouble...I'm still going to try one of these, though!
