InstructionsI made patterns from photos, but they are unavailable unless I am safe from the billions of $ in lawsuits that would surely follow.
Embroidery floss and a 1 mm hook.
What was your inspiration?
Watching "The Avengers!"
What are you most proud of?
Learning a technique that I think I may have invented: 2 colors in a double crochet stitch, made to look like the stitches are all single crochet. However, if someone knows what this is called and how to do it better, PLEASE TELL ME!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be better than me! Improve on my techniques or use better ones (and then teach me how!)
Here is some stuff I learned so far:
1) Strands must be carried across in the lower half, not the upper, or else you get segmenting every place you tie it.
2) My style of stitching is different with tiny string (as opposed to normal yarn); the lower half is longer, so I must pull it tighter to make it square.
3) DONT settle for colors that you have if you can avoid it (and I could have avoided it, but made the mistake anyway).
4) The strand from the top of a multicolor stitch must be wrapped around the bottom of the other color to avoid messy dashes of color in a crisp line.
5) If multiple strands happen to end within a few stitches of each other, they can be tied together rather than tied off individually.
6) With this style of stitching, the project WILL have a back, and the back WILL be messy. Unless you take time to clean it up, but since mine arent going anywhere, messy they shall stay. Single crochet is easier to hide tails and strands.
7) As with all multicolor projects, do not be afraid of tens of working strandsbut have a spool rack of some sort to keep them organized!
