This is kind of hard to explain in words, but I've attached a rough sketch of what I'm trying to make, so hopefully that will help. The project I'm working on is one of those blanket dolls where the "body" is a blanket but there's a stuffed animal or doll "head" on top (sorry, I don't know what they're actually called, but you can see my point in the sketch I've attached). I want the blanket portion to represent the doll's dress, so I'd love it to have a scalloped edge around the bottom/outer portion of the circle. However, all the patterns I've found online are for much smaller "scallops", as opposed to just 7 or 8 around the entirety of the blanket. Basically, what I'm trying to make is something similar to a round ripple-patterned blanket, but with the edges being rounded instead of pointed. I've been crocheting for years and know how to read patterns if anyone has one I could use, but I just haven't been able to find on online. Thanks for your help! Here's a very rough sketch of the final project. I'd like the "base" of the doll (i.e. the blanket portion you can see more clearly in the top view) to be about 10'' in diameter. Sorry I'm not the best artist, but hopefully this gets the point across:
I am looking for a vintage pattern for a shell stitch shawl that I saw in a Good Housekeeping magazine in the early 1970's. It was crocheted in a circle of ever increasing shell stitches. The circle was then folded in half to wear as a shawl. I guess it could have been a table decoration also. I believe that the outer edge grew to be shells made up of 13 double or triple crochets. I'm pretty sure the magazine was 1970 or 1971. It was shown in a multicolor design. I have searched and searched and even emailed Good Housekeeping to find it but all with no luck. If anyone remembers this pattern and can tell me the issue and date I could search more specifically. I would love to find this pattern and would appreciate any help in locating it. If you have this magazine to sell I would be interested in purchasing it, if it is available. Thanks much!! Jan
