11  Re: 2009 12" Squares- January in Crochetalongs by silverfisch on: January 19, 2009 11:07:02 AM
I just add rows until it's 12 inches, that way I get the biggest blankie I can. Cheesy I haven't done one of these yet that my square came out to exactly twelve inches, so if it's under I add rows and as long as it's not too much over, I just leave it.

that's a way to solve this! but for now I am keeping the little sizes I get hoping the rest will come out in a similar size, too!

I finished completely  Cheesy it's my first time finishing a complicated granny square pattern and I am SO proud of myself!

I may end up doing two of each of the twelve squares just like you said, Elensule. these are so much fun to crochet!

ok, I tried it... and I like the result, but I know I did something wrong with the pattern  Tongue I didn't understand some steps, so I just made it up as I went

it's a doll-sized hat  Smiley I hope next time I manage to understand everything properly

pinkleo, I can't thank you enough for sharing this pattern with us! I have crocheted a gazillion things but never found any scarf pattern that appealed to me, since I saw your take on this one, even though I'm no HP fan. it was really fun to make and I'm really pleased with the results.

I didn't want it to be too wide so I changed some things... instead of 3 rows of shells it has just one, also the middle section is just one row of (dc, ch1, dc), and the border is just a picot round with noprevious sc round. oh, and it used less than a 6oz skein of caron simply soft brites! in rose violet

I'm making a second one as a present for a good friend's brithday next month

action shot!

thanks again!!

yep, the ch3 are there. I even thought it was the ch3 the problem, that I somehow did the chains too big and they lifted everything up, but tried using a ch2 instead and the same problem was there

I have a closeup, please excuse the bad light  Embarrassed

now I am thinking I may be doing something back when waving in the changes of colors, because I do it as I go, but I can't think what it may be.

oh! and I'm not a beginner, but neither an expert! nobody I know here crochets, so I learn from errors and from the internet...  Tongue

who else is currently working on a blanket? how are you progressing? I just finished joining the 4th section and I am so proud  Grin

but I don't know why my squares don't look right where I join the colors, you can see in the pictures that the end of one row comes higher than the beginning  Sad not that I care a lot, but it's a bit frustrating that I have this little problem with my squares, when I have never had it when joining colors in 12-point and 5-point stars  Huh

for weaving in the ends, I just put a needle on and, on the reverse side of the project, slide it through some stitches. since an image is much better than pictures... you can check these two youtube videos:

I myself have started my own blanket. I decided to do it in the colors of the rainbow, since I had some Caron Simply Soft Brites! laying around and... well, I think I'll have to look at it with sunglasses when it's finished  Tongue

please excuse the foot  Embarrassed

since I need dishclothes for my kitchen, I tried this pattern with some microfibre yarn and I think I like the look Grin I am going to try a second one in orange and with a bigger hook

I am back from my holidays! and my wonderful package from ofenjen was here waiting for me!  Cheesy my cats helped me open it. they had tons of fun chasing the little bows every package had. I love the way ofenjen packed everything so neatly

the first package I opened had a little sachet with these lovely earrings inside. I love them so very much, am currently wearing one on my right ear and got compliments from a friend who came to say hi  Wink

the second package had... Bella's bracelet! with the mandatory copper wolf (so cute!!) and crystal heart.

I'm already wearing it too  Grin

the third package had... Edward!! gorgeous edward, with a pin saying "do I dazzle you?". his skin does even sparkle! he needs a sunny spot on my shelf! he came with a sheet with sayings from the book, so he can whisper them in my ear ^^

and the last package had this great Team Edward t-shirt which, as you see, is already being worn.

I was quite sad because my holidays are off, and this package made my day. it cheered me and it was SO fun! I need to finish my items for ofenjen asap and only hope she will like them as much as I have liked all her things!

thanks a millio, ofenjen!!  Kiss
