You know, I talk about The Animator's Wife a lot and our crocheting adventures together, but it's not often that I mention The Animator. It's not that he's any less interesting--it's just that I don't really do much with him other than sneaking sandwich meat from him in the kitchen or waking him in the middle of the night for a back rub. Oh yes, I've got him wrapped around my paw to the point he won't even yell at me for sleeping on the dining room table for fear of hurting my feelings. Even Osiris doesn't get that privilege! I guess I'm a bit of a "daddy's girl" that way.
Some of my friends at the 'tunisiancrochet' group at Yahoo, were trying to understand some stitches found in various places. The stitches in question were originally published in1886 by Therese de Dillmont in her massive book: The Encyclopedia of Needlework. Rebecca Jones included these stitches in her book: Tricot Crochet-The Complete Book (Lacis Publications 2000).
Tunisian Fillet uses a combination of the Double or Treble Crochet stitch with the same method of creating spaces as used in the eyelet stitch. This creates a similarity in the method and look of the forward and the return pass and allows for much larger openwork. These instructions use the Tunisian Double Crochet with a matching space of two skipped stitches to illustrate how it is worked. To make this taller use the Treble Crochet stitch (with the Eyelet Stitch) to make the spaces wider, all you have to do is match one Yo for every space skipped and return as normal. To begin: Chain in multiples of three to desired length plus four Row one forward : Skip four chains. Yarn over three times (twice for skipped stitches, once for the Tdc), insert hook in next, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through two loops. * Skip two chain spaces, yarn over three times, insert hook in next, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through two loops.
Instructions for this crochet baby hat pattern are given for 3 different sizes that range from preemie to toddler. However, a note is added to one of the rounds that you can repeat for a slightly larger size. For example, if you need a hat that measures somewhere between 12 and 15 inches, then you would do another repeat of the mentioned round for more stitches.
