I’ve finally finished capturing the other 123 charts for that rotten project and my brain is goo. So, since Fish of Gold and I started a bit of a conversation about knit frogs vs. crocheted frogs, I thought I’d shared some pics of a few of my favorite knit and crocheted pieces I’ve made. Why not…

This is a knit towel made with yarn that changes color on it’s own. This is a combination of garter and stockinette stitches.

2014-08-18 09.40.01Knit washcloths, my very favorite pattern ever. These are done entirely in garter using short rows to achieve the petal shapes. This is done as a single piece that has one seam.

2014-06-02 20.42.28This little valance bit is a special kind of crochet known as filet. It’s made of size 10 crochet cotton (think kite string) and uses the chain and double crochet stitches. The designs are made by alternating solid and open mesh blocks.

These were crocheted toys I made for the little girls one year.

purplesocksdoneThe first pair of socks I knit for myself. All of those cool color changes are just the yarn. The pattern for these is really pretty basic.

This is a shrug I crocheted for myself that I really love. I actually made another in another colorway that turned out just a nice. This is another really easy pattern. It’s just a big rectangle, one row repeated over and over, and then you tack the corners together to form the sleeves.

Interestingly enough, I didn’t have to upload any additional pics and there quite a few I had in my library that I skipped.
