    Wood
  1. I'm using a 16" and I have 209 stitches and that is PRETTY squishy. You could MAYBE fit 230 stitches if you didn't have a lot of colour changes, I think it would probably be too many if you had lots of colour changes. I am looking to buy the hooks with the wire too, but I can't find anyone that sells them in Australia
  2. There are lots of great tutorials online, and heaps of help here in the http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=53040 crochet-along. (It really is quite simple once you get the hang of it.) I made this in tunisian stitch and that had a few colour changes. (Thought you could see how the words turned out.) The only downside is, you can end up with a lot of ends to weave in. Sorry, I don't know how to explain how to do the colour change in words. But it is a great stitch and it looks fantastic when finished.
  3. You could try using the tunisian stitch. That would give it a neat finish and your lines would turn out even whichever direction you chose to go in.
  4. I cut it and continue as if joining a new one, then weave in my ends. It REALLY makes me crazy when I pay a bit "extra" for the "nicer" yarn and to still have knots in it. The should sell these as seconds or something. GRRR! Very annoying.
  5. This is my 1st ever attempt at writing up a pattern. Please let me know if you find any mistakes. PLEASE don't sell my pattern as your own, I'm not fussed about what you do with what you make, they are yours to do with what you want, but the pattern was designed by me, and I would like it to stay that way.

I joined my straps to the 2nd stitch from the end, instead of the 4th, and mine stays on just fine. But the button and buttonhole definitely look better. ;-) Slippers (make 2) Make ring of choice, ch2 1: 8 dc into ring, ch2, turn (8) 2: 2 dc in each dc, ch2, turn (16) 3: 2 dc in each dc ch2, turn(32) 4: Dc in BLO of each dc, join with a slst, ch2, turn 5: Dc in each dc, join with slst, ch2, turn, 6: Dc in each dc, join with a slst, ch1, turn 7: Sc in each dc, join with slst, end off Straps Contrast Colour The straps are joined to the slipper halfway through making the chain Make chain (tightly) as long as you want it to be (depends on how many times you want to wrap it around the leg), 3 sc in 3 st at the back of slipper to join, make same amount of chains again. End off.
  6. I would like to know if anyone knows how to make clickable thumnails using Flickr!. I know that there is an excellent guide for people using Photobucket, but I am currently using Flickr! I know how to make clickable links, but I would love to be able to make clickable thumnails. That way people can see at a glance if they would like to have a closer look. With the link, they have no choice. Thanks heaps
  7. I am currently making this star. I loved the look of it and had to try. I was also having trouble with my definition, (didn't even think to try and contact SamiJo for help, der!) What I am doing, and it seems to be working for me, is I found where the two centre spaces would be, and did 1 dc in the 1st space, then 1dc decrease into that space and into the next, then finished with 1dc. So it still looks like 2dc in each space, and it seems to be making the definition. Hope that makes sense, I have never tried to write down instructions before.
  8. WOW! This is really awesome. Thanks so much for sharing. Will definately be trying this soon.
  9. Darski these are adorable. I especially love the little slippers. Too cute. *runs off to add this to her list of dolls patterns*
  10. Wow, very pretty. Darski where on earth do you find the time to make all these wonderful outfits?
  11. Very cool. Those bell-bottoms are adorable.
