  1. Hi there, I have been using this stitch for quite some time. I call it the half single crochet in all of the patterns I have used it in. It creates a stitch that is like the half double but shorter as it also creates that third loop you can work into. Here are two of my patterns that use it: http://www.anniesattic.com/crochet/detail.html?prod_id=84924&cat_id=895 and http://www.anniesattic.com/crochet/detail.html?prod_id=84893&cat_id=897 Also, I have used it in the fish hat pattern that was just tested here at the Crochetville forum. Thank you, Carlinda Lewis, the Hook Hound.
  2. Beautiful, thank you sharing your pattern with us. :dog
  3. Absolutely stunning and great job. Very worth the time and effort.
  4. Thank you for testing, I appreciate it. The hat looks great!
  5. Deb, this one is easier than the owl scarf. If you would like to give it a go and try it please let me know. I would be more than happy to send it to you with no obligations to finish for testing. Happy Holidays, Carlinda
  6. Thank you to those wanting to test, I have sent out emails with the pattern. Anniedo can you please send me your email address so I can send you the pattern. Happy Crocheting, Carlinda
  7. Hello and Happy Holidays, I am looking for testers for another hat pattern done in Cables, but this time the cables make "fishies" swimming all around the brim. Buttons are added to make the fish eyes. Pattern will use a G hook, and can be done in either a toddler/child size or an adults size. Adults hat has 6 fish around, will take 6 buttons and about 5 ounces of caron simply soft yarn. The childs will take about 4 ounces, 5 buttons and has 5 fish swimming around. However, the buttons are optional as they are for decorative purposes only. The pattern is worked in short rows, but requires no sewing up. Even the buttons are put on during the actual crochet work and are not sewn on after. Hat is designed with ribbing on the top portion of the hat and has a rolled edge brim for a finished bottom edge. You will learn a new stitch with this pattern, It incorporates my half single crochet in the ribbing and rolled edge. I would like this tested by the end of the week. A lot to ask with Christmas coming this next weekend I know, but would make a great last minute gift. Please send me a private message with your email address if you would like to test. Thank you in advance. Carlinda. Find me on Facebook
  8. Looks great!!! Again, thanks so much for testing. Your awesome. :dog
  9. Thank you DebraKay, my next in the series of owls is an adult version sweater. It will be a round yoke design with the owls all around the shoulders. I have it mostly worked up. Will look very classy on an adult. There is still room for a couple more testers. thanks to those who have already pm'd me. I have emailed out the patterns.
  10. Hello again, I have finished another pattern in the It's a Hoot Owl series. This time a simple raglan sweater. Pattern is written for 6-12 month baby, 18-24 Month Toddler, and 2-4 Child sizes. I already have testers for the 6-12 month size, so testers for the Toddler and Child sizes are needed. Pattern will use about 2 skeins of Caron Simply soft for the largest size. One 5/8 button is used for a neck closure. The Toddler size uses 16 buttons for the owls eyes, and the childs uses 18. But the buttons for the eyes are optional as they are for decoration purposes only. Pattern calls for a g hook. Buttons are attached during the crochet and not sewn on after. Pattern requires knowledge of Front Post crochet and is not a beginner pattern due to the cabling design. I would like to have this tested as soon as possible, but understand with the holiday coming near that most won't have time to get it done right away. Please let me know your time line, preference will be give to those who can start right away. This would be perfect for a last minute Holiday gift. Please make sure you I have your email address if you would like to test. Thanks for looking and happy holdiays! Carlinda
  11. Now available and a big thank you to my speedy testers! It’s a Hoot!,, A scarf done in beautiful cables to create an owl pattern at each end of the scarf. The “owls” eyes are buttons which are attached during the actual crochet work and not sewn after. So no sewing on later!!! Standard 5/8 Inch buttons were used, but pony beads may be used as well. You can find glow in the dark pony beads inexpensively at Walmart and those could be used for the eyes,, how fun!!! Stylish and classy for the adults and yet very cute and fun for the kids too! Pictured in the Childs size. This pattern was made to match the It's a Hoot! Headband and Hat patterns. Pattern is written in two sizes: Childs Size 4.25 ” X 44” ~ Adults Size 6” X 66” Knowledge of front and back post crochet is required and assumed. This is not a beginner pattern due to the cabling design. Pattern is available to purchase here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/its-a-hoot-owl-scarf Thank you for looking and Happy Crocheting, Carlinda :dog
  12. As soon as it is finished being tested I will put it on Ravelry and in my Etsy shop. Again, thank you testers.
  13. Testers found, thank you. I have sent emails with the pdf pattern files.
  14. It's a Hoot! A scarf done in beautiful cables to create "owls" at either end of the scarf. This scarf was created and made to match the It's a Hoot Owl Headband and Hat Patterns and can be made in either of two sizes: child or adult. Testing is for the Scarf Pattern Only. Either size will use 4 buttons. The childs will take about 4 ounces of Caron Simply Soft and finished size is 4.25 Inches Wide X 44 Inches Long. The adult size will take about 6-8 ounces of Caron Simply Soft yarn. If working the adult size I will require that you let me know the ounces you used to complete the scarf. Other materials are an H Hook and a small bit of dental floss for attaching the buttons. Both adult and childs sizes have one owl on each end of the scarf. Childs size is pictured. I would like to have this tested by 12/8/11. Prior knowledge of Front and Back post stitches is needed. This is not a beginner pattern due to the nature of the crossed cable design to form the owls. Please make sure I have your email address if you would like to test. Thanks for looking and happy crocheting! Carlinda :dog
