A Few Things About Me

  • Favorite projects
    hats, soft toys,
  1. From what I read it's just one strand of 5mm thick cotton 'rope'. You just have to be very sure of where you are hanging it!
  2. Does anyone know if there is a pattern out there for something like this? http://www.craftpassion.com/2016/01/hanging-seat-pattern.html All I can find is this knitting pattern... Many thanks!
  3. Didn't mean to repost your post ReniC whoops! Here she is earlier in the year rocking the sunglasses, not sure she could manage these and the jumper all st once!
  4. My first bigger project complete, not without many small mistakes but it looks the part! Not sure I can get it on her again without many food related bribes!
  5. Thanks very much!! I think I will give it a go with 2 increases from row 5 - 13 and see if it works. I am not sure who the designer is, or where I got the pattern from (somewhere online, but it was a while ago). Hopefully making up to 26 stitches will work. You are right about the counting with hdc!! Ive had a lot of confusion as to whether to count the turning chain or not. The pattern isnt very clear, but I think ive got it now (after a week of messy crocheting!). Thanks very much for your help =)
  6. Hello! I have been crocheting for a little while now, but all self taught, watching tutorials, books or google. However I have realised I always have so many questions and no one to ask when making my projects so went on the hunt for a forum. I am hoping to get a bit of advice and help from other like minded people such as yourselves. Thanks in advance!

  8. Hello, I am currently working on a dog sweater. The pattern looks fairly straight forward, however there are no pictures/diagrams included so it is quite tricky working out what each panel is supposed to ultimately look like. I am struggling on the Tummy Panel. This appears to be triangular in shape but with flat ends (so no point). The smaller end starts at the neck of the animal and the wider end around the tummy. I am not sure whether there is a mistake or mis print on this part of the pattern or whether I have done something very wrong as my stitch count is not the same as that that the pattern suggests. This is the Tummy Panel Pattern Row 1 ch8, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc in each rem ch across, turn (7hdc) Row 2 Ch 2, hdc in each hdc across, turn. Row 3 Rep row 2 Row 4 Ch2, hdc in 1st hdc, hdc in each hdc across to last hdc, 2 hdc in last hdc, turn. (8hdc) Row 5 Rep row 4 (10 hdc) Row 6-13 Rep row 5 (26 hdc at end of last row) Row 14-29 Rep Row 2, at end of last row fasten off. I followed this pattern, without really counting stitches or rows (as I was getting a bit distracted I accidentally kept increasing after row 13, no drama as I could pull them out and go from there). However when I did count my stitches, I wasn't anywhere near 26 at row 13. At row 13 I have 18 hdc. My work looks even, but Its not big enough. Should the pattern actually read on row 4 'Ch 2, 2hdc in 1st hdc, hdc in each hdc acorss to last hdc, 2 hdc in last hdc' Or have I messed up somewhere? My other confusion is that the first panel made works in the back loops only and clearly states this. However there is no mention of working in back loops on the other panels. I am not sure whether to just work in back loops on the other parts to keep the pattern looking the same throughout, or whether there might be a reason not to do this, hence why it doesnt say to... Any advice much appreciated!! Thanks
