  1. Hi, My partner and I are going to the Arctic circle in a few weeks and have basically no experience with cold weather - we live in Australia. I was thinking of crocheting some warm accessories using mostly a half double crochet stitch and wool, but I really have no idea if that's my best option. Can anyone give me some suggestions? Cheers, Teresa
  2. Hi, hello! I'm new to the forum in desperate need of help! I'm brazilian and on sunday there will be a very cool event in which people get together to crochet granny squares and subsequently attach them together to make afghans for donation! We get a few very cold days here in São Paulo and a lot of people suffer and even die from exposure every year. Last year they managed to make more than 200 afghans which is already a big help. Every one counts. This will be my first time participating and I wanted to start making them ahead, so I'm looking for a pattern that will meet some requirements: - It has to be 30 cm x 30 cm (11.8 in x 11.8 in). - It has to be simple to be FAST so I can make as many as possible. - It has to make a warm afghan. (I'm saying this because maybe if it has a lot of "holes" in it, it might not make a very warm afghan when sewn together. Maybe?) Can anyone help me with a pattern? Thank you so much in advance!!
  3. So this is an easy beanie I designed really quickly and made because my teacher asked me to make her one to send to someone she knows, and since it's near the holidays, I didn't really have the time to go all out (in other words, I didn't have time to look for an actual pattern) so I just made a simple one, and I figured, "Hey, why don't I post this?" ... so I am I've posted my pattern to my blog here: http://whirlsandswirlsofpurls.blogspot.com/search?updated-min=2012-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&updated-max=2013-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&max-results=1 and ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-easiest-and-quickest-beanie-youll-ever-make if you're interested
  4. Made with Red Hart super saver yarn in Amethyst and Grape fizz, using a Pattern of 8 Grape fizz rows followed by 16 Amethyst rows repeated 6 times stitch is a variation of a Waffle stitch using a half-treble stitches instead of double stitches. (I'm not sure how anyone else does this stitch but this is what I find works best.) The waffle is two stitches wide. and the full scarf is stitches wide. HOW TO MAKE THIS CHEAP YARN SOFT!!!!! Wash with jeans in normal detergent(jean material helps rub against the yarn distressing it without ruining it, I use arm and hammer detergent, eco friendly soaps {especially ones for cloth diapers work well also}) Dry on medium heat with dryer sheets or Balls (instructions to make these are on pintrest) half way through cycle pull scarf out and spritz with Wrinkle releaser (Critical step this relaxes the fibers and help to soften them) this was a lot of fun to make and the wrapping and stitch makes it super warm and comfy
  5. I have a new pattern available for this crocheted knight's helmet that fits most average sized adults. The face shield is adjustable and removable. I originally designed it for my brother who wanted a unique looking beanie to wear when he rides his bike on long distances. He likes that this one keeps his face warm too and when he goes to his classes he can put the face shield up and out of the way. When I decided to start writing patterns I wanted to include pictures of the steps along with the instructions because I am a visual learner and sometimes find just written instructions hard to follow. Hopefully this pattern will be the start of many more to come. It is available in the following places for only $2.50. www.etsy.com/shop/Odatcrafts www.ravelry.com/people/helodat
