I really did not like how my first attempt at baby booties turned out but I intend to try again. I am working on a brimmed newsboy hat at the time and just starting on the brim. The pattern says to sc through both rows 19 & 20? Is there a video that shows how to do this?
I am looking for a easy light cap, head band, big hair pin, hair band which could be used on a bun or model of anything nice which would be able to wear as outside as inside on the top of the head (hair straps usualy dont cover that field). It shouldnt be as pretentious as coctail cap, should look like modest hair accessory and cover top of the head as I have to cover it all the time except when its truly very warm as... I loose body warm via my top very quickly :)
Earlier I dealt with this problem wearing nice crocheted bennies, but I am tired of them, they also make me look bit gypsy hippie and I wold like not to receive questioning glances why are u always with a cap...
thank you for any idea which could lead me further very much.
I have attempted to edge my first panel of seven squares. I ran into all kinds of problems. Lengthwise all squares have ten loops. Across either end I wound up doing twelve loops. I am wondering if I should go ahead with another panel of seven squares. Will I be able to join the five panels of seven squares together? I posted a video of what I have so far on my blog. iweararedhat.blogspot.com
I finally have ten loops going across Afghan Stitch Square (directions highlighted in green, below). I don’t know where to insert my hook (directions highlighted in red, below. what amounts to 1 ½ rows?) across Lace Square.
With loop on hook, st st in first row of afghan st at lower corner of panel, working along long edge ch 4, skip 2 rows sc in next row, * ch 4, skip one row sc in next row; rep from * across Afghan Stitch Square, having ten loops across. *ch 4, skip 1 ½ rows sc in next row; rep from * across Lace Square, having ten loops across. Work edge around 4 sides of panel.
There's always a little bit of yarn left over from projects. Too much to leave around; too little to start another project with. What do you do with it? What are some of the ways to be creative with bits of yarn?
