Crocodile Stitch

Crocodile Stitch I came across a lovely pattern on that included using, what they called, the Crocodile Stitch. Firstly, I have no problem paying for a pattern that someone has created and posted on the internet. I have no problem paying for an item that I don't want to make myself, from the internet.

Příprava Z několika možných způsobů výroby pozadí jsem si vybral výrobu řezáním z extrudovaného polystyrenu a poté jeho natření barvou zdravotně nezávadnou. Velikost akvária měla být 160x60x60cm a podle toho jsem si sehnal extrudovaný polystyren. Očekával jsem, že extrudovaný polystyren nebudou prodávat na každém rohu, ale nakonec byl velký problém v Brně tento sehnat.

Obrázek č. 2 - Oříznuté zámky ze tří stran Na bocích desek jsem zámky ponechal, aby se daly k sobě lépe přilepit (viz.

How To Make A Crochet Magic Ring There is definitely a benefit to using a magic ring, or magic circle, over the traditional beginning chain that you slip stitch into a ring. What is it? There will be no space in the center of your project. It will completely “seal” and leave no hole. Here are the steps to making the magic ring. It may take some practice, so don’t give up! Step 1: Begin by making a backwards “J” with the end of your yarn. Step 2: Cross end of yarn behind your yarn coming from the skein. Step 3: At this point you will need to pinch/hold the yarn together where they cross. Step 4: Let yarn from skein fall behind loop. Step 5: Pull loop all the way through, and up to top of ring. Step 6: Using your middle finger (or any finger that is comfortable) continue to hold the loop you just made, to the top of the ring. Step 7: Chain 1 for sc & hdc patterns. Step 8: Crochet as many stitches in the ring as your pattern calls for. Step 9: Pull yarn end to seal circle. Happy Crocheting!

25 Crochet Techniques to Learn Cro-tatting – learn more Continuing on with the series, here is a list of 25 crochet techniques to learn to help jumpstart your crochet creativity. Some of them are specific techniques for traditional crochet and others are variations on traditional crochet. I’ve included seom information on getting started with learning each of these things. 1. Do you learn better from words and still photos than video? Many people prefer to use the magic ring to start their in-the-round project. 2. I like the tutorial from Stitch Diva that shows the anatomy of crochet stitch and explains where to put the hook to crochet in either the front or back loop only. 3. The best resource for getting started is the WonderHowTo page that shows a variety of different variations of two color crochet including how to crochet using two threads at once. 4. The most common crochet motif is the granny square so you can always start there but there are tons and tons of other motifs out there. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

Joining Granny Squares When I join my Granny Squares together I always choose to crochet them rather than stitch them. Its just the way that appeals to me, although many of my hooking buddies prefer the stitching method. I guess it's a personal preference. And as many of you have asked me to supply this information, here you have it :: my take on joining the Grannies, in usual Attic24 style with waaaaay too many pictures I suspect. But hey, I want you to get it and not struggle with it, and I think pictures do the job better than words. Ok, firstly put your two squares together, Right Sides together. So your hook goes through the outside loop of the square nearest to you.... ...then through the outside loop of the square farthest away. Start at the right hand corner, you are working right to left. Put hook through OUTSIDE LOOPS of the corner stitches, and hook your yarn through both loops. (Note :: I am using a contrasting red yarn here to join so you can see it easily, but best to use a matching colour.

my cool caravan I made one purchase during a girls weekend trip to the beach a few weeks ago. It was this book. And, a new little obsession began. On the beach? I just love this mini green one. This one reminds me of Uncle Rico. Oh, and the interiors. We had a VW Westfalia when I was a youngster. This one is by far my favorite. How about a caravan for the backdrop of an outdoor soriee? So fun. I could spend a week in this on the islands of Hawaii. This is small, I admit, but look how thoughtfully the space is used. Could this be Wes and I, sans the overalls? I admit I've been poking around Craigslist for one of these diamonds in the rough.
