    Fringe Help

    I have made afghans using homespun and put fringe on them. I tie a knot in the end of each piece of fringe, being very careful to include the thin little thread that holds all the fuzzy part of the yarn together. If you don't have that little thread in the knot the yarn will stretch out or unravel. Hope this helps.
  3. I think the "Round 2" part doesn't belong in this pattern. If you look just below where it says "Round 2" it then goes back to saying "Rows 2, 4, 6, 8", seems to me that if you just leave "Round 2" off and continue with the rows that it would work out. Hope this makes sense and helps.
  4. Here is a link with lots of free patterns... http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory.php Check under pineapples in the right column. Hope this helps.
  5. I finished Eva's Shawl this morning. I did 33 rows and used almost all of the 11 oz skein of Sensations Rainbow Boucle. It measure 35 inches long from the center neck to the bottom point (I'm kind of tall, about 5' 10" barefoot). I think it has wonderful drape, yet is nice and warm.
  6. I didn't really have a pattern, just an idea of what my furbaby might play with and not tear apart in the first 5 minutes . Post 7 is a brief description of how I made them, I think any ball pattern would work, just add the leggy things as you make the ball. These seem pretty tough, my furbaby still has the first one I made for her, other than being a little fuzzy, it is still in good shape and not losing any stuffing.
  7. I haven't joined...however, I found this thread... http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=21179 maybe this will help.
  8. :hookI finished up a couple of things last night, so I got to start on this sooner than I thought . I have had to frog it a couple of times because of the yarn I picked, it is Sensations Rainbow Boucle from JoAnn's, probably not the best choice for this shawl. It was looking like a large lump until I went up to a size N hook , at least it is now somewhat lacy looking.
  9. I had printed the pattern out a while back, just now checked it out online, it seems that the pdf is in US terminology , no need to rewrite it. Here is the link for the pdf... http://milobo.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/evas-shawl1.pdf I'm in, just need to finish a couple of projects over the weekend, so then I won't feel guilty for having soooo many projects in the works .
  10. I really enjoyed testing this wonderful set. I found the patterns to be well written and easy to follow. I used red heart ss in linen. Sorry, I didn't have anyone to model the set. :hugNina Kate, thank you for letting me test for you.
  11. Sending Pm. Oooooo, I love your bag. I would really like to test this for you. I am already testing your Ribbed Hat & Scarflette .
