I’ve been trying to make a baby pixie bonnet using tutorials from YouTube and a pattern I bought. I’ve finally managed to make it quite cute but it kind of rides up the back of my baby’s head once it’s tied. The pattern is essentially a rectangle of dcs folded in half and slip stitched together. Super simple. I was thinking that it might hug the base of her skull better if it gently sloped upwards. I’m thinking that adding some decreases to make the rectangle more narrow at the end might do it but not sure. Any advice?
I came across this shawl a couple of times on youtube, and can't find it in history. I think it's a half-circle, or 5-pointed "segment" type shawl. Anyway, each segment has a run of double crochets which increase with each row. The difference is that you don't place your new row of DC's directly into the previous row's DC's, but place them in-between the previous row's DC's instead, something I've rarely seen done before. Has anyone seen/done a pattern like this? The effect was really interesting and unusual. Thanks to everyone in advance. Pup
Iam very much a beginner in crochet and determined to teach myself. I have picked up a pattern that said it is ideal for beginners which is a cute reindeer head. I have to make a magic ring which I have looked up and think I understand, I have to work 6dc into the ring. But what confuses me is that the instructions read as follows; Rnds 1-2 2dc in each stitch to end 24 sts I understand dc is double crochet but what is the 2dc? Grateful for any help
Well it has taken a lot of You Tube and a lot of starting and stopping but I got to do a magic ring, crochet 6 stitches and closed the ring ok! What I would like to know is that my pattern says crochet 2dc in each stitch. I find this really difficult, I cant seem to find the stitch again (maybe it's too tight?). Is it really necessary to crochet in dc as I find, at the moment I can manage single easier!! I am just working on a test piece before I start the actual toy.
