1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Croheting a hat, looking like a mushroom? on: June 13, 2008 07:21:13 AM
Hi all, I'm doing my first crochet project, other than just swatching to try new stitches. I'm doing a hat and I'm only on row 3 and it's looking just like a mushroom. I know there are a lot of "do but not written" things in crochet and I'm wondering if I'm missing something.

FTR, it's done in Dbl crochet. Any takers?

I very badly want to knit this but I cannot afford a high end yarn to do it. Does anyone recommend some cheap *cough* acrylic yarn that will do right by the pattern? I really like Caron Simply soft and it's affordable. Would it do ok, or do you have any other suggestions? Man, being a SAHM sure does hurt for knitting, lol.

OK, I think I need help. I learned how to crochet a LOOONg time ago but never got past scarves. I've been knitting for a bit now and I've realized how long knitting takes. So I saw this tute and got excited.

Lol I can't understand it for the life of me! I understand how to do the HDC stitch but I'm not getting how it joins.

Also, when I'm starting I chain 2 then start doing the HDC. Do I turn it around and start on the active chain I just made, or do I end up making 3 and starting from the 1st one I made? If you can't tell, I'm completely confused! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

One more thing. Could someone explain to me how I'm making this? Where is the first stitch starting (Toe, back, bottom?) and how is my slipper going to come about. I'm sorry if I have too many questions. I'm really interested in learning how to crochet more than squares!

Thanks everyone!

I cannot stand wool on my skin so I guess I would be in the same situation. Are there better acrylics than others? I think I got a Red Heart "thing" of yarn and it has lasted me through quite a few things. Are there any drawbacks to using cheap yarn?

Lol, sorry if I sound like an idiot! All the knitting site tell you about it how to knit, not ALL the other things that go with it!

As of now, the only thing I've completed is a scarf. I've been using Acrylic yarn for all my current and future projects. Hobby Lobby is the closest craft store and although they do have some great deals, I tend to shy away from the more expensive yarns.

I've read quite a few posts here talking about Yarn snobs (lol, that makes me giggle) so I'm assuming there are some benefits to more expensive ones. I know that once I get into felting and whatnot I will need wool or natural.

What's your opinion?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sweater suggestions for a knew knitter? on: September 22, 2006 12:41:56 PM
Hey everyone. I have very recently learned how to knit and I'm already getting too big for my britches. I would like to make a very simple easy sweater. I've browsed many a site and most are too busy for me. I just want a simple V-neck or crew neck sweater, a little longer at the bottom. Does anyone have any patterns or suggest any sweaters they've made to fit what I'm looking for? There have been a lot I've loved but look a little daunting to a new knitter. Thanks so much for your input!

Oh that's such a shame you'll be moving. It sounds like you spent a lot of time and effort on this. Great job. It looks so professional!

That is the most FANTASTIC place. If I could pay someone to decorate my place, it would look EXACTLY like that. I am so inspired now! WOW!

I have been renting a LOOONG time and I never thought to just staple fabric to the walls! Hmmmmm. Ideas are already popping up!

Ooh looks like I've got something else to knit besides scarves! I tried making the easy Mary Janes and the one is taking so long, I don't know how I"m going to make the 2nd! Great knitting BTW!!!
