Standards and Guidelines for Crochet and Knitting

Standards and Guidelines for Crochet and Knitting
The publishers, fiber, needle and hook manufacturers and yarn members of the Craft Yarn Council have worked together to set up a series of guidelines and symbols to bring uniformity to yarn, needle and hook labeling and to patterns, whether they appear in books, magazines, leaflets or on yarn labels. Our goal is to make it easier for industry manufacturers, publishers and designers to prepare consumer-friendly products and for consumers to select the right materials for a project and complete it successfully. Included are: We urge manufacturers, publishers and designers, to adopt these guidelines. We received valuable input from allied associations in the United States, such as The National NeedleArts Association, the Crochet Guild of America, and The Knitting Guild Association, as well as designers and consumers.

Knitting Chart Maker - Review of Knitting Chart Maker Program by Jacquie The Bottom Line For a free program, this is a good option for people who want to make charts for their own use and who have a good grasp of what the different symbols mean. I found it a little frustrating to use, but other people might not replicate the problems I had. And even with the issues I had, I would probably still use this program to make simple charts for my own use. Pros It's free.Easy to use for basic designs.Can easily transfer the chart to an image editing program.You can add custom cable patterns and colors for Fair Isle or intarsia.Shows a stitch count so you can ensure you're increasing and decreasing evenly across a row. Cons I had trouble sometimes switching between symbols.I couldn't get tinking to work in the color mode.I couldn't get back to the design mode after switching to color mode without shutting down.The online and downloaded versions have different features and are better for different things.

Segundo Proyecto Tejiendo Juntas Inicio | Blog Acrochet Chicas, aqui iniciamos nuestro segundo proyecto del tejiendo juntas. Esta vez haremos una prenda de vestir para adulto en talla S. Usaremos hilo de algodón, en mi caso he usado colores muy afines. Coral, amarillo y anaranjado. Todo esto irá combinado con blanco, que hace un hermoso contraste. Necesitamos aproximadamente 20 gramos de cada color de contraste y 250 de blanco. También necesitaremos un crochet acorde a nuestro hilo. No olviden de usar una tijera con buen filo y una aguja para meter los hilos. Necesitaremos tejer 18 movitos iguales para toda la prenda. Comenzamos segun nuestro primer video. Como vemos en el video primero debemos trabajar 18 argollitas de un solo color. Paso seguido, debemos completar el trabajo con la siguiente argolla teniendo este resultado. Espero como siempre sus avances a para poder publicarselos. Tags: crochet patrones gratis tejiendo juntas paso a paso
