13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Beaucoup de chapeaux pour ma grand-maman. on: October 05, 2007 11:01:25 AM
OK, It's such a boring topic that I decided to liven up the title in french. I know I'm not fooling anybody.  Tongue The purple, cream and yellow hats are all the same pattern. The blue one's a different pattern. My grandma like them so much she asked me to make the yellow on, a black one and a red one for her too. That's me wearing the yellow one so ya'll can see how they fit. Click on any of the pics for a bigger view.

And this is my Grandma! She had a form of cancer, and while she didn't lose all her hair, she says it's so thin she can't do anything with it. So I made her hats. Cause let me tell you, I hate those little turban hats like she's wearing in this pic.

14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / brimmed slouchy hat(6pics) pattern added(pg1) on: September 24, 2007 12:58:54 PM
I made this brimmed slouchy hat last night. I wanted something that i could wear that would fit over my hair. I'm not completely happy with the brim,but I think I'll make a couple more and tweak the brim. but here it is.

It's so sad that I decided to make this hat instead of clean this mirror

here's what it looks like without the brim. I like it this way too.

Pattern is here!

If you have massive tons of hair (for example really long locked hair) you might want to add in multiples of row 10 and it will make the hat more oblong to fit your hair.

Ok, you can start with a joined chain or with a magic circle. I like the magic circle personally, but its up to you.

1.   Ch 3. 11dc in ring join (12 dc)

2.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. 2dc in each stitch around join (24)

3.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next stitch. 2dc next stitch* repeat from *to* around join (36)

4.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next stitch. 2dc next stitch* repeat from  *to* around join (48)

5.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 2 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from *to* around join (60)

6.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 3 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from around join (72)

7.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 4 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from around join (84)

8.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 5 stitches. 2dc next stitch* repeat from around join (96)

9.   Ch 3. dc in same stitch as ch3. *1dc in next 5 stitches. 2dc next 6 stitches* repeat from around join (108)

10.   Ch 3. dc in next stitch and in each stitch around. Join

Decrease begins  here (I didnt count the number of stitches per row for these rows. keep in mind this fits my giant head, so you may need to add in a couple more or less decreases before you do the brim. I'd suggest trying it on after row 16 to see if you need to decrease more. you can do it two ways. #1 add in more decrease rows. #2 change the number of decreases in row 16. Ex. dc in fewer stitches before each decrease.)

11.   Ch 3. dc in next 10 ten stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 11 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. (Youll decrease about 8 times. Just dc in any extra stitches after the last decrease to finish the row) join

12.   Ch 3. dc in next 8 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 9 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join

13.   Ch 3. dc in next 5 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 6 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join

14.   Ch 3. dc in next 2 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 3 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join

15.   Ch 3. 1dc in next stitch and each stitch around.

16.   Ch3. dc in next 9 stitches. Decrease. B *1 dc in next 10 stitches. Decrease* repeat from *to* around. join. fasten off.

Brim starts here! If you stop here itll look more like a giant snood/hairnet.  I double stranded the brim to make it stiffer. If you dont want to you can probably not fasten it off on row 16 and start the brim from there with a ch1. If you read ahead, you can see where I was just making up the brim as I went along. You can choose to use whatever stitches you want for the brim but I think the basic concepts still gonna work about the same. Next time Im gonna do all my dc rows before I start in on my sced rows. As is, I was just trying to make the brim, look visually how I wanted to. I had to go back and count afterwards. If/when I fine tune the brim, I'll come back and repost it.

1.   Join yarn in any stitch on the edge of hat. Slip stitch in same stitch. sc, hdc, dc in next 20 stitches (more if you want the brim to be wider) hdc,sc, slip stitch. Turn.

2.   ch1.slip stitch in previous sc. Sc in previous hdc. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. 1dc in each of the next 14 stitches. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. Hdc. Sc. Slip stitch. Turn. (slip stitch should end in 1st sc of row 1)

3.   ch1.slip stitch in previous sc. Sc in previous hdc. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. 1dc in each of the next 16 stitches. 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches. Hdc. Sc. Slip stitch. Turn. (slip stitch should end in 1st sc of row 2)

4.   ch1. sc in slip stitch and each stitch across ending in slip stitch. Turn.

5.   ch1. sc hdc dc across row. In last 2 stitches of row (hdc, sc) turn.

6.   ch1. sc across row.

7.   ch1. sc around entire hat (brim and all) fasten off and weave in the ends.
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Thong. (Yes, I said thong) on: September 22, 2007 12:04:06 PM
"Ok, what had happened was..."  my friend sends me a text that says "crochet me a thong" that's all it says. I'm sitting there and thinking "yeah right". Turns out she was serious. She needed it for a game at a bridal shower where the bride has to guess who brought which underwear. I don't think she's going to use mine though. Her mom oalo knitted her one out of the evilness that is also knowna as fun fur. (May God forgive her). Anyway, i made this in like 10 minutes, so here it goes. I figured someone should see it since I went to the trouble to make it and you guys are it. lol.

This is just soooo Wrong...
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My slouchy puff/bobble hat of destiny (w/links to pattern) on: September 18, 2007 11:41:25 AM
I found the link to the original version of this hat. The one I found on "Crochet by the hook" I noticed that AargghMatey's patterns not up right now, so I'm adding this link for anyone who wants it. the only difference between the two is one fewer row of puffs/bobbles here. http://bythehook.blogdrive.com/archive/91.html 

here's my slouchy hat. It's a very funny story, at least to me for how this hat came to be. I printed out a bunch of hat patterns about 2 weeks ago from various locations on the internet. Then one day last week, I found the topic posted on craftster here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195823.0 by ArrghMatey   (there's a link to her pattern there). Anyway my friend who I taught to crochet and I were going on about how we were gonna have to make one of them.

That same night I went home, and pulled a hat pattern out of my stack, at random mind you, and started working on it. (you can probably see where this is going) I didn't really even look at it except to make sure I was following the stitches correctly cause I was watching a movie. Anyway, I got to the second row of puffs/bobbles and really looked at it and said to  myself, "wait a minute? Isn't that the hat from today" I dug out the pattern I'd printed from ArrghMatey's blog and, lo and behold, It was the hat, except hers had an extra row of bobbles, which I immediately put into mine! I call it crafting destiny. Its like I was meant to make this hat.

And here it is.

Sorry the front pics a liitle blurry. Sad

17  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Smirkalicious Sarcasti-bear on: September 10, 2007 11:15:27 AM
OK, this bear I made a while ago cause I wanted to try out this pattern. I don't know why I didn't scrap him. I embroidered his eyes crooked (not on purpose) and they are too close to his left ear and too far from his right ear. I don't theink he hears too well on his right side. And to add insult to injury, I sewed his poor mouth on crooked so he has a sort of permanent smirk. Kind of a sarcastic type look. If you want to see any of these bigger just click on them.

18  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Charcoal Tree on: September 08, 2007 12:56:44 PM
I drew this ages ago when i was in college. At least 6/7 years ago. At the time found out that charcoal totally rocks and I can't draw trees with leaves to save my life. The pics not that great, because my mom asked me for it and i had it laminated (seeing as it's on newsprint) cause I didn't want it to deteriorate. It's also in a frame with glass over the front. Can't take it out cause mom got glue-gun happy. (and we wonder where I get it from). I had to take a pic of the whole thing so please forgive the bad photo. Anyway, this is my favorite drawing I've done. click on it if you want to see it bigger.
19  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Yummy Easy Pasta Salad on: September 08, 2007 12:47:16 PM
OK, this is my favorite pasta salad to make. It's massively easy and you can really put whatever you want into it. I like to use this stuff... You really can use whatever kind of noodles and ingredients that you want and whatever kind of salad dressing you want and even however much of it you want to put in. And it's easy to make more or less of it.

Bacon Bits (I like the crumble packs of real bacon you can buy at
                the store. Then you only have to cook the pasta.)
Chopped onion
Sliced Black Olives
Italian salad Dressing
Sometimes Cheese (depending on if and what kind I'm feeling that day)

20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Shirt and matching headband on: September 06, 2007 04:00:16 PM
this is loosely based on the pattern made with some butt ugly yarn found here. I stuck with one color and used some Simply Soft Yarn.  I used 3 skeins and then had to go buy another when I had only 9 rows left. I hate when that happens. So close...and yet so far. Even with the extra set of ties I added it tends to hang off one shoulder after a while, but I don't mind. 

I wanted to make a hat, but realized that I mostly wear my hair like it is in the pics so it a headband would be more realistic in the long run. Here goes...

First on our tour is the shot of the full Shirt!
and even though it's still warm out, I war it to work anyway. Darn airconditioned libraries! The solid line across the front isn't on the back or in the pattern. I only did that so that i could remember which side was the front. Cheesy

Next we have a pic of the sleeve from the top. You can see the ties here. I made the sleeves bigger on purpose. i wanted them to hang.

Now we have my always smiling self with my matching headband on.

And of course, a flat pic of the headband on my handy dandy ironing board that apparently doubles as a prop for photo shoots. Smiley
