Q&A with DollmakerAnne

Bluehengirl asked:
Looks great! I'm using the same yarn in a different color palette... Nice to see the finished product...
DollmakerAnne answered:
Post a picture when you're done - I'd lile tp see it!
ivsadsad911314 asked:
I would like to know tunisian crochet but I don't know how to start where do I start?
DollmakerAnne answered:
I learned by taking the Craftsy course - Tunesian crochet: Revolutions in Color and Style. I would only recommend it if you already know how to do traditional crochet.
jclhomer asked:
Love the palette. This is two panels right? Great job!
DollmakerAnne answered:
Thank you. Yes, I connected them with single crochet along the long edge, trying it on repeatedly to find the correct spot to stop and strongly anchor.
Cyn2you asked:
This is exaactly what I intend to do with my project in the tunisian crochet. It is so nice to see what it might look like. You just made two panels and stitched them together with a single crochet. So whan I am buying my yarn would you say just double what the pattern calls for? I haven't made up my mind on the colors yet, but I just discovered Overstock as a great source of yarn. What do you suggest as far as what kinds of yarn to look for, from your experience?
DollmakerAnne answered:
The pattern actually is for two panels. The instructor shows a number of ways to use one or both panels to make different looks. I did use somewhat more yarn because I increased the length of the initial chain (I can't remember details now). I couldn't afford pure silk but found yarns that contain some silk or bamboo in a blend drape well. I joined the two panels with a single crochet but did reinforce the tie off point which gets alot of strain (at the back of your neck). Good luck with your project!
