1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: patterns mess up on: May 18, 2010 10:27:52 PM
Yes, absolutely do a gauge swatch, and *wash* it, if you're having trouble.  Depending on the yarn that you use, your fabric might shrink or grow after washing.  (Generally less of an issue in crochet than knitting, but still a thing to look out for)

Nothing on Ravelry.com suits you?  I'm coming up with about 6 pages of results for a search for "amigurumi doll," availability: free.

Hmm, I've got a basic UK to US, US to UK conversion script available here:


Does that help at all?

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Chain stitch around edge?? on: March 08, 2010 01:06:53 PM
"Chain stitch" as used in Creepy Cute means the embroidery stitch.  (As opposed to "ch" which means the crochet stitch)

see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chain_stitch

If you just sl st around the edge, you'll get the same effect as if you embroidered chain stitch with a needle and thread-- the stitch works pretty much the same way however you do it.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Symbol Question on: August 25, 2008 09:46:26 AM
Yep, it's a chain

Actually, it looks like they tried to give an English key to what the symbols mean, but it's, um, missing the symbols

So, to copy and paste a bit here

US English translations to the diagram:

<description of symbol> = <label given in diagram> = <English translation>

horizontal line = lm =ch
vertical line with two cross hatches = dbl-st = tr
vertical line with four cross hatches = firedbl-st - les Hekletips = triple tr read Crochet tips
star = denne raden er forklart i oppskriften, start pa 2. rad = this row is explained in the pattern, beg at the 2nd row.

rad = row
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Short Rows Knitting Chart on: August 11, 2008 09:11:39 AM
Hi all!

I'm currently writing up a knitting pattern that involves short rows, and I would like to include a chart of the pattern for more visually-oriented crafters.

However, looking around, I haven't been able to find any examples of knitting charts involving short rows-- *is* there a standard way to denote short rows in a chart?

Of course, if necessary, I can just make up my own notation and be sure to document it in detail in the pattern, but, of course, if there is a notation that people are more likely to recognize, I would prefer to use that.

anyway what do you enjoy listening to when crocheting?

Audiobooks.  Lots.  Smiley

...though, that can get pricey, especially if you pay full retail price on books.  I'm a big fan of (free!) lectures and talks through iTunesU as well
