I love that blue cloche crocheted hat.. too cute! And it's awesome that you're willing to post these, let alone TRANSLATE them! Craziness <3 Grin

The orange and blue crocheted jacket near the very top looks interesting to me...I agree w/ Lothruin, trades maybe?
Good luck finding that other needle!

I have a whole group of Harry Potter fans interested in the crocheted cloak! Please please translate! (sadly I myself don't crochet, good reason to learn though)

Right, let's start on this Red/gold wrap thing :

Materials: 250 g mohair yarn (french completely unknown brand, try some in your stash untill you can match gauge !), 6 mm needles
Stitch used : garter st, knit all rows
Gauge : 12 st/ 18 rows = 10 cm (4")
Instructions : Start at back. Cast on 3 st, work in garter st, increasing 1st at each end 1st away from side, 53 times every second row.
You have 109 st.
Then, cast off the center 21 stitches for collar, and continue each side separatly, knitting  2st together 1st away from side at each end, 10 times every fourth row. You have 24 st.
Knit another 136 rows straight on those remaining stitches, and cast off. Do the same for other side of collar.

.. and that's it ! (I know, wasn't so much to translate on this one..  Guess that's the reason why I chose it ? Wink )

So now I have to start thinking about what I'll translate next.. Maybe a crochet project ? Have to check how complicated the instructions are..

... So I have checked ! Upcoming translation should be for the blue cloche crochet hat.

And after that... well all the other projects have pretty long instructions, so I guess... Maybe make me  offers for "trade" if you want a special one ..? Tempt me !
