1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Pattern for my Crochet Market Bag on: May 06, 2010 05:41:28 PM
I am working on this pattern and have a question on interpretation.

On line 8, it says:
*ch 3 sc into next ch 3 sp; join with sc in first ch3 sp repeat from * around

What I interpreted was to chain 3, then connect into the next ch3 space with a sc, then repeat again with chain 3 to connect in the next ch3 space and so on.

But what I am not understanding is chaining 3, sc in the next space...then "join with sc in first ch3 sp". Huh?  What is the "first ch3 sp"? I really don't get it.

Can someone help me interpret?

I will add to the love. Woot!

I think I would need mine more fitted--I also have Scandinavian calves, thanks to my mother. And to make these work I would need them to fit n' flare, so speak. LOL
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Mr. Bunny (with "pattern") on: January 05, 2008 10:29:26 PM
Okay, so since you asked for feedback, this was the only part I had an issue with:

"Now use Round Heel shaping to get the back of Mr Bunny's head:
P 5, p2tog, p1, turn work
Sl 1, k 3, k2tog, k1, turn work
Sl 1, p 4, p2tog

Now, you'll need to pick up stitches along the side of the flap we knit for the back of Mr. Bunny's head (these are the stitches you slipped at the beginning of each row).
Pick up and knit 8 sts with the needle holding the sts you just shaped. This is needle 1."

No matter how I looked at it, if I ended on the Sl1-p4-p2tog as in the final step before joining the flap, I would have had to purl to pick up the stitches and continue around.  I thought it was me being a doofus, so I looked up several heel shaping tutorials, and one hit on the head what I kinda knew: to start on the joining, you have to have just finished a knit row at the top of the flap.

So essentially, I just turned around after the purl row on the flap and stitched knits one more time, and then continued with the instructions as you listed them.

My only issue I am left with now are the holes at the corners where I joined the flap.  I am sure some sock tutorial covers this, but for now I think I will just stitch it up with some spare yarn and call it good.  But if you have any suggestions on that, I am open to them.

Thanks for this! I will post pics when I am done with him. I was inspired by the rotund "oops" Mr. Bunny earlier in the thread, and am opting to make a very round Mr. Bunny. Wish me luck in finishing!

I am SO IN LOVE. I ran out and got some felt to do some practice designs before I try for a real one with the vinyl. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love love love the fabric colors you chose.

And thanks for the tute link. I made one for myself I just made up in my head, which did turn out great. But this one has more detail, and may help me design future ones.

Looks like pretty much exactly this bag tutorial, unlined, made from corduroy!

Can you scoop on how ya made it? I love this! Many of my friends are moving away from grocery bags at the store, and I think something similar would make a great replacement!

You could laminate them in a heavy laminate, punch holes in the corners, and put four together in a square (one four-card square per side) with jump rings. Then stitch them to the outside of a regular canvas bag...?
