1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Has anyone made a Crocheted Nappy Cake? on: December 09, 2007 10:11:06 AM
I saw a pattern online for a crochet nappy cake (also called a diaper cake). It was really amazing, but I am wondering if anyone has made this pattern, or else just assembled their own nappy cake with a strong emphasis on crocheted items. It is such a cute idea but appears to be a ton of work due to all the different crocheted items. I think it's sweeter if it is handmade though. For some reason, that seems more sentimental to me, and would be more memorable in the long run.
2  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / I'm making bedfellows! also need some help on: April 10, 2006 02:06:44 PM
I'm so excited about the pattern for the crocheted bear and bunny. I'm currently making the bunny out of some acrylic worsted that I had on hand. When I finish, I'll update with pictures.

Request for help on pattern:

I'm wondering if anyone else has tried to make the bunny. I'm having a slight problem already with understanding two parts of the pattern. I have already checked the book's errata online and there aren't any corrections for this pattern.

Slst2tog : Under "Special stitches"
under the materials description on page 251, you get directions on how to do what they refer to as "slst2tog".  The directions say: "(Insert hook in next st) twice, yo, draw yarn through all loops on hook".  What do they mean by that? If you read the pattern directions for how to work the body, you are often directed to "dec 2 sl sts". It's only later in the pattern directions, on page 252 under Rnd 29 that you are told to do "slst2tog".

Wouldn't the standard slip stitch decrease be the same as slst2tog?  I tried to follow the directions for "slst2tog" literally, and it worked but it was REALLY hard to insert the hook twice in two adjacent stitches without yarning over at all.

Here's my literal interpretation of slst2tog:
Stick hook in the stitch indicated. Do not yarn over. tilt the hook's head back towards the front of the work, and insert it in to the next stitch. Then yarn over and draw through all loops on hook at one time.

When I did the slip stitch decrease, I yarned over after inserting in each stitch, but the last time you yarn over, then you draw it through all the loops on the hook.

Also: When you are making the head for the bunny, there appears to be mistakes in the first few rounds.  On page 254, when you go from round 2 to round 3, how is it possible that you go from having 9 stitches to having 16 stitches? The directions for those two lines:

Rnd 2: *2 sl sts in next st, sl st in next st; rep from * around -- 9 sts. (<--- this works out right)
Rnd 3: *2 sl sts in next st, sl st in each of next 2 sts; rep from * around -- 16 sts. (<-- seems to be error here?)

I have only made the body so far but it's looking really cute and well made so far. Pictures soon!
