tangled up

"snowflake mondays" a past post i had seen UPDATE WEEK #4

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm back from a trip down memory lane with some suggestions for replacement flakes.

If you've read the most recent pages here you'll see we have two weeks links that need to be replaced.

I propose:

Week 36: The second beaded flake from Carla's suggested http://www.daintycrochet.com/Highlightsnow.html - the second (pink) one.

and

Week 37: And an "old faithful" place for snowflake #9 at

http://www.sarahanns.com/crochetworks/snowflakes.html

 

If no one else has a pattern picked out for this week I'd suggest another from http://www.sarahanns.com/crochetworks/snowflakes.html

We've done #'s 3,4,6,7, and now I've picked 9 above. How about #1?

 

Please, if anyone wants to suggest others I won't mind if we use these later. We're getting down there! Aren't we?

 

:fire:fire:fire:fire:fire:fire (can't get much warmer!) regards,

Sounds good to me, Cosmo :)

:coffee

When I've woken up properly (and can then wrest control of the computer from my techno-family), I'll update the list... which should give anyone else an opportunity to second the motion, or third it? :think:morcoffee

Sorry folks... got sidetracked... thought maybe that by the time it got to Friday maybe I'd just wait for the new flake... :2blush

 

Thanks, Cosmo! :hug it looks like you quoted, so it should all be good-o...

 

I joined Facebook this week at my mother's request and have been a bit overwhelmed by that whole deal. I am also waiting in trepidation for crochet class #2 - the first went ok, though I got less in than I'd hoped - we just did single crochet into pre-prepared swatches. Seeing what people manage to get done as "homework" (finishing the first swatch up to square, working on a second one if possible) will help me see what we can actually get accomplished.

 

Plus I am testing over at Lullabies and Lace (like I need to add more crochet projects to my docket :lol - which would be why I joined the bookmark swap :rofl)...

 

Excuses, Excuses, Excuses... not part of the fairy code, I'm sure :D

 

Till tomorrow

Hello, everyone. I miss you all. My daughter is coming for a visit next Saturday and will be looking at my computer while she is here to see if she can get it connecting again. I've got my fingers crossed. I just printed up a bunch of the snowflake patterns so maybe I can get caught up eventually. I've been mainly working on filet crochet pieces for Christmas presents of late. I've got 5 done and 3 to go, one of which is half done. :hug:hug:hug to all.

Hi Linda!! Good to hear from you :hug we miss you, too!!

 

SO, would you like to hear my most recent use for a crocheted snowflake? I'll challenge you all that it is one of the most original uses :lol...

 

On Tuesday, the Melbourne Cup "the (horse) race that stops a nation" will be run here in Oz. Even if you are not attending the races, ladies tend to frock it up with dresses and hats or fascinators. I decided at the last minute to wear a frock, etc. (upon discovering that I fit into one of my favourite frocks again :yay) to teaching my computer class this coming Tuesday and to host a small Melbourne Cup late lunch for a few friends. So I had begun the search for a hat or fascinator. Having looked through one mall and failing to find anything I liked in white or purple (white dress with purple flowers), I thought maybe I'd make a fascinator. I crocheted a purple rose, but it was to heavy :sigh... so I went shopping with my MIL and ended up eschewing the really funky, dramatic purple fascinators in the second (more posh) mall for a smaller cheaper model found in a hair dressing shop in the first mall... so on trying the whole getup, my husband commented that something white might help the purple and black fascinator stand out from my mouse-brown hair... so , to make a long story slightly less long than I might otherwise :lol... I ended up putting a snowflake behind the fascinator and it sets it off perfectly :lol...

 

So, anyone else have a slightly off-center use for a crocheted snowflake?

Thank you Wanda for updating the list. I don't believe I've ever used a snowflake as creatively as that and I'm sure all of us want to see you dressed in your finest (facinator, snowflake and all) on race day. :garden:turtle:rabbit :kangaroo (There isn't a horse smiley! Sorry)

 

Linda,

I'm still doing a "fix it dance" for your computer. I hope you'll be back soon too! We miss you! :hug

 

I was going to post a pic of Wanda and Cosmo from Halloween but the camera wasn't working. Maybe you can't photograph fairies!

There are some attached snowflakes on this Christmas stocking link if anyone is game.

http://www.crochetmagazine.com/newsletters/talkingcrochet/pages/TCNL2708_patt1.html

 

I think on closer inspection, you will find that it is a snowLake... I am not sure if we are in the snowLake making business here... we have to have SOME standards!

 

;):P

 

Maybe for next week...

Hey guys I found this one today wasnt sure if you already had this one or not its from bhg website.

http://www.bhg.com/holidays/christmas/ornaments/make-a-crocheted-snowflake-ornament/

 

Thanks, craziebunny :) We actually do have that as week 10, for some reason the address is a little different, so it does not look like it is the same one when the forum truncates it, but it is :)... that is actually the one I used under my fascinator yesterday. (Pics to be posted when my kids next let me on the computer, with camera in tow...)

I'm not 100% sure I want to join the CAL (too much stuff to do to commit to anything else just now) , but I was trying the first snowflake and got confused on the 3rd round. I know about the dlst --> slst typo, and am fairly fine until it says "ch8 join in 6thdc from hook twice." Now, I've read through the beginning of the thread and no one mentioned a problem with this part, but I can't quite figure it out. The 6th dc is all the way on the other side of the flake, and I've tried replacing dc with ch, but it doesn't seem to be working either... Any help? Also, is the snowflake only supposed to have 5 points?

Hi, Nila :) Feel free to drop in any time, we are a CAL with no real commitments... if you had to commit to doing the flake-a-week, I would have been booted out long ago!!!

 

I think it means chain rather than dc, but I'll pull it out and check on it and should have an answer in about 6 hours, after my kids have gone to bed, unless they give me a chance to hop on the 'puter again or someone else gets in with an answer in the interim :)

 

Glad to hear from you and whether you "join" us or not, always feel free to drop in with snowflake questions or, really, just about anything :lol.

To your first issue:

 

It does mean ch 8, sl st into 6th ch from hook...

 

In that round you are creating 2 different types of arms - 6 triple-picot triangular branches - the main arms, separated by 6 single picot arms that straddle the gaps between the main arms.

 

The first thing you create is the triple picot arm: ch 6, sl st into the 6th ch from hook (first picot (6ch loop) made), ch 8, sl st into the 6th ch from hook (first side of triangle (2ch) + second picot (6 ch loop) made), ch8, sl st into 6th chain from hook (second side of triangle (2ch) + third picot (6ch loop) made) - at this point you have 3 picots sticking out from the ch space you have slip stitched to and sc'ed into, strung out along a line with 2 ch between each - then you sc into the same space you started from. - this makes the string of 3 picots separated by chains into a triangular branch with a picot at each bottom corner and a picot at the top. Then you chain 9 and sl st into the 6th ch from the hook - creating a 3 ch 'leg' with a 6ch loop picot at the end of it - , ch 3 and skip 2 spaces, doing a sc into the next ch sp (which should correspond to the same place on the next 'arm bud' sort of dome as the ch sp into which you placed the triple picot branch) and you start all over again :)

 

You should have six points to the snowflake:

The first row has

*ch 4 - counts as dc, ch1 (running count of:1 x dc, 1 x ch-1)

*dc, ch1 (running count of: 2 x dc, 2 x ch-1)

*repeat dc, ch 1 10 times (running count of: 12x dc, 12x ch-1)

 

I think the first time I tried the pattern it was unclear whether you were repeating to a total count of 10 dc, including the initial one, OR doing the initial ch-4 plus 10 repeats of dc, ch-1 OR (this is the correct one) doing the initial ch 4, doing the dc, ch-1 and repeating that 10 MORE times.

 

You should end up with 12 dc and 12 ch-1 at the end of round 1. Remember to join with a slip st in the 3rd chain of your initial ch-4 to create that first dc, ch-1.

 

It really is not the most clearly written pattern, is it?

 

Enjoy!!

It does mean ch 8, sl st into 6th ch from hook...

 

In that round you are creating 2 different types of arms - 6 triple-picot triangular branches - the main arms, separated by 6 single picot arms that straddle the gaps between the main arms.

 

The first thing you create is the triple picot arm: ch 6, sl st into the 6th ch from hook (first picot (6ch loop) made), ch 8, sl st into the 6th ch from hook (first side of triangle (2ch) + second picot (6 ch loop) made), ch8, sl st into 6th chain from hook (second side of triangle (2ch) + third picot (6ch loop) made) - at this point you have 3 picots sticking out from the ch space you have slip stitched to and sc'ed into, strung out along a line with 2 ch between each - then you sc into the same space you started from. - this makes the string of 3 picots separated by chains into a triangular branch with a picot at each bottom corner and a picot at the top. Then you chain 9 and sl st into the 6th ch from the hook - creating a 3 ch 'leg' with a 6ch loop picot at the end of it - , ch 3 and skip 2 spaces, doing a sc into the next ch sp (which should correspond to the same place on the next 'arm bud' sort of dome as the ch sp into which you placed the triple picot branch) and you start all over again :)

 

You should have six points to the snowflake:

The first row has

*ch 4 - counts as dc, ch1 (running count of:1 x dc, 1 x ch-1)

*dc, ch1 (running count of: 2 x dc, 2 x ch-1)

*repeat dc, ch 1 10 times (running count of: 12x dc, 12x ch-1)

 

I think the first time I tried the pattern it was unclear whether you were repeating to a total count of 10 dc, including the initial one, OR doing the initial ch-4 plus 10 repeats of dc, ch-1 OR (this is the correct one) doing the initial ch 4, doing the dc, ch-1 and repeating that 10 MORE times.

 

You should end up with 12 dc and 12 ch-1 at the end of round 1. Remember to join with a slip st in the 3rd chain of your initial ch-4 to create that first dc, ch-1.

 

It really is not the most clearly written pattern, is it?

 

Enjoy!!

 

Cheers,

:lolyou got me lost on the arms and the branches!! :lol is that a snowflake stuck on a tree?(kidding) I have noticed that some of these snowflake patterns are really confusing!!!:eek

 

I thought you guys most likely have that pattern but thought I would throw it out there just incase!! I havent joined this but always pop on to see what you are doing.Lurker in the door.:lol
