Thanks so much guys!
I hadn't realized that there were new comments.
I can't believe that it's been 3 years since I made it.
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 2 sweet purses for 2 sweet girls on: November 08, 2010 11:29:12 AM

I made these two sweet bags for my 2 little nieces who are 2 and 3 years old.
The pattern calls for worsted yarn but I used DK to make them smaller (they are only 6 inches across).
Here is the link to the great free pattern:

Thanks both,
I never thought about the difference in the direction of the lines but
I agree that the lines going around instead of vertically make a nice difference in the look  Smiley
cheers.... suki
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / crocheted elephant pacifier clip made from a knit pattern on: September 04, 2010 12:15:26 PM
I always thought that the elephant pacifier from Itty-bitty Nursery by Susan Anderson was so cute.
Problem is I am a beginner knitter and I'm much more comfortable with crochet.
So I wondered if it was possible to use the pattern as a guide and end up with a decent crocheted version.

This is what I made:

and here is the link to the knitted version:
I'm actually quite happy how it turned out.

I used sc instead of knit stitches which resulted in it coming out the same size.
When it said to cast on 9 stitches I made 9 sc into a magic ring.
I then simply looked at each row's stitch count and made the number of increases or decreases necessary to get that count.
I spread the incr/decr evenly through that row.
Pretty straight forward.
The reason it worked was that I chose a pattern with simple shapes.

I originally tried to work through the actual instructions in each row but that didn't work out at all
since increases in knitting and crochet don't work the same.

I'm so happy and  I already have another knitting pattern lined up.  Cheesy

You did a wonderful job!
Her daughter will get tons of wonderful comments and she will have a really cute one of a kind bag.
Don't doubt yourself for one moment...you did good!

17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: a new cover for an old beatup stool on: September 04, 2010 04:35:16 AM
Thanks guys,
I was really happy that I could use a lot of my stash up and it feels so good
to reuse something that would normally end up in the trash.

littlmissmanics, I've see pictures of the most rickety old stools that have been covered
and they look great. Some of them looked like they were just a few boards nailed together
yet they looked amazing when they were covered in yarn.
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / a new cover for an old beatup stool on: September 03, 2010 07:06:04 PM

I found a stool on the curb which was a bit battered but still in good condition.
I decided to make a cover for it so I crocheted a new top for it.
Here is a closer look from the top.
It's a bit stretched from my cat's claws and my husbands feet :0)

Here is a pic showing the old stool peeking out.

The centre part is from this free pattern
The rest is rows of double crochet.

Thanks nrogers!

Very cute!
I'm wondering how you attached the details so that they are safe?
I've got all the pieces of a bunnyversion made up but can't figure how I can make it safe for little ones.
