It’s finally finished!! Thanks again to @spockandawe for the pattern.
Ahhhh, that turned out so cool!! I love your color choices and I'm so glad the pattern worked out for you! :D
Not my art, but a wonderful friend of mine crocheted me this gorgeous yarmulke as a present and I need to show it off haha
does anyone know where i could find this stitch pattern as a chart? my eyes turn into little swirlies whenever i try to read text-only patterns.
if you give me a day or two I can convert it to a chart
do you have any preferred symbols for stitches
...dear god these instructions are really difficult to read
these are better I'll try and work off of 'em
okay I think this is right?? odd number rows are either knit or purl, depending
| = knit
\ = left twist
/ = right twist
talking of patterns, does anyone know where I might find a whole bunch of good decorative knot tutorials? I want to make some my granola mother some grass cord jewelry for christmas.
that's really hard to read, sorry. it's easier than text, but kinda hard to tell the slashes apart when they're all together. it goes all op art on me.
maybe use < and > for the twists?
thank you for your effort, btw, i don't want to be ungrateful! i'm just getting old and my eyes are going weird. :P
Okay, I don't personally do Outlander, but I am ALL about scots/irish aesthetic, and this Wrapped in Jamie CAL is my jam
These are about 16 inches across, and the three raised rows are Rough on the hands, and this is for a present and not for ME, so this blanket is going to top out at 3x4 squares. But the CAL is releasing a square a week for, uh, thirty weeks. Plus two big squares, triangles if you want to do a shawl, an eventual border, etc.
I've been buying the pattern pdfs ($1 each, i think?), which are gr8 and include images at the end to help with the tricky bits. The actual stitching isn't difficult, but the ways things go across rows really adds up to a cool-looking whole. Each pattern also includes an explanation of the inspiration for the different patterns, so the twisty one in the bottom right is based on a carved wooden snake Jamie was given as a child, etc.
I'm really enjoying this so far! I'm impatient for the new squares and my hands are le sore, but I like this a lot!
....I may have made the mistake of deleting the page after finishing but lemme see if it got saved somewhere and I can track something down
IT WAS IN FACT SAVED
odd number rows are either knit (in the round) or purl (back and forth)
| = knit
< = left twist
> = right twist
also! the pattern I posted a picture of here has gone live: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/guarding-tree-gloves
PERF thanks so much !!!!
holy moly those are amazing! i never knew crochet could do that!!
i should absolutely NOT start a new needlepoint project when i've barely begun my huge fish-and-lilies pillow, but... i really kinda want to do a lil 'night vale' sampler that says, "Hey! Watch us, moon!" because i think that bit is so cute.
i've finished the first round of baby gifts for my best friend!
it's the same pattern that @spockandawe made a few months back! i have had a really hard time getting photos that really show the texture, which is a lot more visible in person. i had a blast making this, this is exactly the kind of pattern i love in a blanket (ie, different every round and a variety of different stitches.)
bonus pic of Dalton helping to make it:
(see in THIS one you can see the texture! that's what it looks like irl)
the baby's room is elephant themed so i made this and mounted it in a shadow box frame! my embroidery skills are very rudimentary but i still think the faces came out really cute :D
b(ear)flap hat with removable lining! i didn't follow any specific pattern for this, it's just a Basic Crochet Hat with bits added on. (well, technically two Basic Crochet Hats, one of which goes inside the other.) i did look up a few different bear ears patterns and picked one i thought would look cutest on the hat but idr where i found it now.
i went a little overboard, but it's my best friend's first baby so i gotta. i have a couple more things i want to make still but the baby is due in a week and a half so those will probably be christmas presents instead.
to use up the rest of the yarn from the baby blanket, i whipped out a little cardigan this week!
pattern. i tried various fasteners, including a couple different color buttons and a couple different types of ties-- including teaching myself to do a 5-strand braid and re-learning how to crochet an i-cord-- before deciding it looks best as is. (but knowing how to do a 5-strand braid is its own reward!)
Literally exactly a year ago and then today :D I'm gonna try to do all the plying this evening! (My spindle projects are incredibly slow - and even then, I have up and did that biggest storage bobbin on my wheel.)
