Anyone wanna test this pattern? If you forgot what this is, here's a reminder:

[IMG]http://www.inktobark.net/hair1.jpg[/IMG]
If feels kinda weird to call this an original pattern. It's so simple...it should be like copyright free or something. Anyhoo.... Please let me know if I screwed up or you have trouble understanding it. This is the first pattern I share.

I used:

Sugar and Cream Cotton yarn (any worsted weight will do; cotton's just better for summer)

I hook and G hook (for flower)

Stitches used: Chain (ch)

Single Crochet (sc)

Double crochet (dc)

Puffy McPuffpuff* or Bullion (B):
y/o 9 times, insert hook into stitch, draw loop through stitch. You know have ten loops on the hook. Y/o again and draw loops through the previous ten.

Shell:
3 dc ch 1 3 dc in one space.


Row 1: Ch 3. Dc 2 in third ch. Ch 1, skip second ch and 3 dc into first ch. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 3. 2 dc in next dc. Ch 1 and shell in ch1 space from previous row. Ch 1, 3 dc in last dc. Turn.

Row 3: Ch 3. 2 dc in next dc. *Ch 1, 3 dc into next ch 1 space, ch 1*. Shell in shell. Repeat from * to * once. 3 dc in last dc. Turn.

Row 4: Ch 3. 2 dc in next dc. *Ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 1 space,* Repeat from * to *. Shell in shell. Repeat from * to * twice. 3 dc in last dc. Turn

Row 5 – 15: Ch 3, 2 dc in next dc. *Ch 1, 3 dc in spaces, ch 1* Repeat * to * until point. Shell in Shell. Repeat from * to * until last space. 3 dc in last dc. Turn.

[You can change how many rows you’d like as long as you keep to the pattern. Keep in mind that the edging adds about an inch and a half.]

Edging: Ch 3. 2 dc in next dc. *Ch 1, dc-b-dc in space, ch 1.* Repeat * to * until point. Shell in shell. Repeat rom * to * until last space. 3 dc in last dc. Turn.

Ch 3, 2 dc in next dc. Ch 1, shell in space, ch 1* Repeat * to * until point. Shell in shell. Repeat from * to * until last space. 3 dc in last dc. Do not turn. Instead, sc down long edge of kerchief, fasten off and weave in ends.

Straps: Join yarn in one corner and ch about 40 (or however long you’d like your straps to be). Sc in second chain from hook and continue across. Fasten off at corner and weave in end. Repeat on other side.

And yes, I call the bullion my Puffy McPuffpuff stitch. :devil

ETA: I reuploaded the picture. I didn't realize it was down, sorry. Enjoy.

This is so cute!
I printed it off and plan to start it tomorrow.

It looks like it'd be an awesomely beautiful shawl just by adding rows!

Thanks for sharing this!

About the shawl comment: My mom said she wanted me to make her a kerchief. I said "okay, how long?" "Oh about 50 inches. That should cover my shoulders right?" :rofl

ETA: By the way, I make two per ball of S&C but it depends on hook size and how many rows you add on. :)

I did one this morning...or rather most of. I can't finish the endging because I ran out of yarn...go figure! So I'm going to buy more this afternoon to finish it. I didn't have any problems with it. Worked up fast and it's just too easy! lol!! I'll post a pic after I actually finish the edge.

I just made one. I think it's a little too big for me so I'd go with 13 or maybe 12 rows, but it's DAMN cute!!!

Also, you are missing the 3dc in the last dc, turn in Row 4 of your pattern.

I couldn't do the bullion stitch no matter how many times I tried, so I just did the shell edging. I'll get a pic later and post in show and tell. If I ever take it off...hehehe

I made one too, and I love it. I used RH Lustersheen though, and also had to skip the bullion stitch. I couldn't do it no matter what, either. I just did the shell edging like trish. I love it, and will post a pix soon!

Tiggzie,

I really want to make these for my GDs but I'm a little confused:think In reading the directions I came across "shell in a shell". I don't know what that means.:blush :eek

Thanks for your help:clap

"shell in shell" just means to do a shell stitch into the ch1 space of the previous shell.

Also, for those having problems with the Puffy McPuffPuff stitch, cheat. I don't usually pull the hook through all the loops at once, I do them one at a time. Still gives the same effect and it doesn't leave me wanting to yank my hair out.

Thanks for that correction trish. I'll fix that right now. :)

A shell stitch is usually something like 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in one space. I believe I stated in the beginning of the pattern what a shell stitch was. :) If you need any more help do not hesitate to ask. I'll do my best to make is clear :hug
