    April 2006
  1. I am trying to figure out how to preven that pesky space at the end of my hdc. I dont' remember what site or book I found it in but I really need it now...I am getting sick of those little spaces!
  2. Thanks! I used Red Heart Super Saver's Brown.
  3. I decided to try making my very own amigurumi without the use of a pattern. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be very easy, very quick and very fun! http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h154/Coco_Butterfly/IMG_0048.jpg http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h154/Coco_Butterfly/IMG_0043.jpg
  4. I'm making an amigurumi and it's been going pretty well these things are really simple...however...I cannot sew to save my life and the face is embroidered on. It kind of reminds me of a satin stitch but I'm willing to use any stitch so long as it gets me a similar look. Please help, thanks!
  5. Do you think I could just reduce the number of pattern repeats?
  6. I decided to make a top from Crochet Today (Lacy Pineapples). I am a little worried about the size that it's supposed to be. The directions say: Sizes: S/M (L/1X, 2X/3X) finished chest: 42 (49, 56)"/106.5 (124.5, 142)cm finished length: 23 (231/2, 24)"/ 58.5 (59.5, 61)cm I am worried that the measurements given are on the large side for the S/M size. A 36" would hang off on me. At first when I started I thought that it was large b/c you need an undershirt on but I don't think that all this excess explains the increased size anymore....Help!
  7. It wasn't very hard. I'd say a 3 (with 10 being the hardest). For me the toughest part was trying to figure out how to shape the twist but the body of the wrap is sooo easy!
  8. Thanks so much everyone it helped out a lot! ....but now I'm stuck again....I've started on the body but have no clue what to do. I feel like such a novice... In This Pic I drew what I think the pattern is trying to say but I'm not sure b/c it doesn't seem to work out. If I work in the established pattern around in this way won't it make the shells come out sideways? I've already joined my yarn and worked across the left front edge; however, I was stumped exactly where you see my hook at. I keep trying to figure out what the pattern means by saying "Dc in first V-st on back" do I do this Click Me and follow either the yellow or pink lines??? I don't know what to do now besides go to bed...I need to stop working on this when I'm half asleep! Thanks for the help!!
  9. :devilMore Questions Added In Other Posts!!! Before I even begin let me start off by saying YES I did check the errata page and I am aware of the corrections !! I have already completed the back part and I usually like to read over the pattern before I begin. I was reading the instructions for the Right front and I noticed it said " Rows 2-5: Work even in established pattern of rows 2-5 of back" I haven't been crocheting long so I'm not to familiar with all the pattern lingo but what does it mean by "working even"?? Does it mean keep doin the same thing as you did in rows 2-5 or does it mean someting else?? Also what is the best or easiest way to reverse these shaping for the left front?? Thanks!
  10. The pattern is from Moda Dea. You might find it in a local craft store but I couldn't find this specific one so I ordered it from Crafters Home. And thanks everyone for all your compliments!
  11. With out a doubt Crochet Today wins hands down!! It has more trendy and youthful patterns that Crochet! If I had the time I would crochet everything that's in the mag!
