81  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Chunky Moebius Cowl (from a PlanetJune pattern) on: January 01, 2013 05:07:06 PM
I made this as a Christmas gift for a friend, and it whipped up fairly quickly. The hardest part is making the foundation row, which doesn't start with a chain, but makes the chain and first row at the same time. Once I got the hang of it (and kept track of my stitches), it was a very easy pattern. I like it so much, that I'm making another one for myself (I need something that doesn't tickle my neck while I'm shoveling). It fits nicely when it's wrapped twice- snug enough to be warm, but not so snug that it's choking me Smiley

This one is made with Charisma yarn in the Toadstool colorway.

83  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Stationery & Note Card Swap Round 2? on: August 31, 2012 05:53:45 PM



We've just finished up Round 1 of the Stationery & Note Card Swap, and hopefully, a new one will be starting in a few weeks.

Here's the original discussion thread for Round 1: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=407464.0

Here's the swap post thread for Round 1: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410473.0

Here's the gallery thread for Round 1: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=411564.0



Here's a bit of feedback from the first swap:

Quote

Next time we should figure out if there is a better way to create samples. I printed up sample Stationary and no one wanted it so I don't know what to do with my samples. I also had 2 cards printed from my samples that no one wanted, but I found uses for them.

Would it be easier if everyone posted a list of themes you'd like to make (for example, I might post "Trees, Flowers, Insects, Retro Patterns, Books")? Then, people could claim you for one of your themes and whether they wanted stationery or note cards. As a receiver, it would be more of a surprise to see what someone would make using the specific theme.

Or, maybe as part of the questionnaire, you could list themes you'd like to receive, and then your partners could make sets based on your themes?

What does everyone think?

Details of swap:

This is Round 10 of the Grannys Daughters Swap! If you don't know how to make a grannys daughter, it's pretty easy!  A grannys daughter is the first round of a traditional granny square.....that's it!  The pattern can be found HERE.  A child's afghan requires 240 motifs and an adult size afghan requires 720 motifs. As stated in the pattern, each motif should measure 1 1/2" to 1 3/4".  So it's important to check your gauge so that all motifs will be the correct size.  

You will send 40 motifs in assorted colors to 2 partners (for a total of 80).  This is a great project to use up those little bits & pieces of scrap yarn you have laying around. Note: If you would like only 1 partner or would like a 3rd partner (first-time swappers are limited to a maximum of 2 partners), make sure to indicate this in your questionnaire. If you would like a 3rd partner, it may depend on the number of folks who sign up.

All motifs MUST be made in 4-ply worsted weight yarn, or if you're in the UK the yarn equivalent will be 10-ply aran.  Please be sure to check your gauge to make sure your motifs are the correct size.  We wouldn't want to receive some motifs that are 1 1/2" and some that are 2 1/4". Your motifs should measure 1 1/2" to 1 3/4".  Size is important!!!   REMEMBER:  It only takes a few minutes to make one grannys daughter. If you get started when you sign up, youll have the bulk of the work done by the time partners are assigned  Wink

Weaving in the tails: The directions call for a 6" tail to be left at the end. Unlike earlier rounds, ALL OUTSIDE TAILS WILL NOT BE WOVEN IN. All starting tails must be woven in! Please make sure that the starting tails are SECURELY woven in (and not simply crocheted over).

Positive feedback on this swap will be left once your partners have all received, and once you have posted pics of what you have received. You must remember to PM the organizer when you SEND and RECEIVE (a post in the thread is not sufficient)! Poor communication and failure to post pics of what you received will be noted in your feedback. Thanks!

88  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Jacob's Ladder Crocheted Hexagon (with pattern) on: June 09, 2012 05:56:06 PM

Jacob's Hex Crocheted Motif




This motif was created for Round 3 of the Scavenger Hunt Crochet Motif Swap, but was inspired by fantasticmio's amazing Jacob's Snakes and Ladders blanket. And then, when she posted a tutorial for the Jacob's Ladder, and made it look so easy, I decided to give it a try.

Jacob's Hex
designed by craftADDchick (CJ Gould), April 2012

Ch 15

Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, ch 10, dc in last 2 dc (4 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 2: ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in next dc, ch 10, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st (6 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 3: ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st, ch 10, dc in next st, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st (8 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 4: ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next 2 st, ch 10, dc in next 2 st, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st (10 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 5: ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next 3 st, ch 10, dc in next 3 st, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st (12 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 6: ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next 4 st, ch 10, dc in next 4 st, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st (14 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)
   - Put stitch markers at each end of the row

Row 7: ch 3, dc2tog, dc in next 4 st, ch 10, dc in next 4 st, dc2tog, dc in next st (12 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 8: ch 3, dc2tog, dc in next 3 st, ch 10, dc in next 3 st, dc2tog, dc in next st (10 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 9: ch 3, dc2tog, dc in next 2 st, ch 10, dc in next 2 st, dc2tog, dc in next st (8 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 10: ch 3, dc2tog, dc in next st, ch 6, dc in next st, dc2tog, dc in next st (6 dc, 1 ch 6 sp)

Row 11: ch 3, dc 2 tog, ( Follow fantasticmio's tutorial for linking the chains!), sc 1 in last loop, dc2tog, dc in next st (4 dc, 1 sc)

Row 12: ch 1, turn, sc evenly around, putting 3 stitches in each corner and 3 stitches at the marked ends of Row 6.
   - Slip stitch to first sc, fasten off ,weave in ends.


It stitched up pretty quickly, and I think they'd look pretty cool in a bunch of colors all stitched together. I think they'll "tesselate" together pretty well.

Note: The photo is of the first one I made. I made a couple of slight modifications to the pattern to make the border round look neater and to get the side corner "points" more even looking. The pattern hasn't been tested by anyone but me, so if you try it and find any mistakes, please let me know!
