This topic kinda died out but was restarted in the "Where did you all Go?" thread.
Here's Kim's idea:
That magazine looks good. I also went to check out garnstudio and they have a TON of crochet patterns for hats, bags, and tops. Most of them are pretty contemporary designs. Some of them are British, though. I'm sure we can figure out the translations as a group, though.Originally Posted by KimPossible
Here's a link to just crochet patterns (9 pages worth):
You can also search by type of garment.
Any other ideas (or specific projects from these two sources).
A while back michelle posted a crochet-a-long ideas thread and it kind of died....i postd a bunch of projects that I liked that were out there on the net....i will go and find them and post them again
(dont' worry it was less than the gillion knitting ideas i had for the knit-a-long )
Ok this is essentially what I posted on the other thread, all compiled into one post...
I'm not a crochet-er but I look at crochet patterns I like all the time Because I keep telling myself that some day I will learn.
I always find myself coming back to this one...
Very baby girly so I don't know if it will appeal to everyone, but remember! Gifts Gifts Gifts!
Also, like I said, i dont' know crochet so I am not going by any skill level, i am simply looking at projects that I like!
Edited to add...
actually the whole ensamble is pretty darn cute...
There's even a pattern for a matching overcoat
I know of a couple of other crochet patterns from blue sky, i actually want the headband, but i'ts probably too small of a project for a CAL no?
THis one is a rug...and I would have a place to put it too
And actually, on the 'purchase' side, they have small handful of crochet patterns that I think are really nice...but I figured if you were going to go the purchase route...someone who knows how to crochet could suggest it
(the crochet patterns are mixed in with the knit patterns)
This something else I actually want to do! Now the picture shows a belt, but I actually want to use them as tiebacks for my curtains in my bedroom! (Our sheetse have bright colored polka dots on them)
The Pattern is for the belt, coasters and pins...any of the 3!
Two Baby Hat Patterns that I thought were cute
I'd love to do a CAL. Here are a few of the things I like from the drops site posted.
I also wouldn't mind doing a poncho or shrug for a child. I'd rather not do a sweater or scarf right now - or anything that is more winter appropriate.
Hotfudge, I liked the first two you linked to, too. I also don't want to do anything warm weather like right now because it's getting to warm to get excited about cold-weather clothes.
Kim, I love the baby hats. Only thing is that they're girly and I don't have many girls that I can knit/crochet for.
Really? I thought the second one was rather unisex...especially if done in certain colors. The first one is definitely girlyOriginally Posted by skat130
Ooh, that htought never ocurred to me...i forgot that crochet is fast.Originally Posted by hotfudge
I tape "Uncommon Threads" on the DIY network and they did this crochet bag last night. It's another small project but so cute (and the pattern is free). http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cr_nee...759_03,00.html
