I'm at it again: I am 'accepting' Special  custom ORDERS.
Please note:  "Orders are only taken for the  HUGE "STRIPED AFGHANS (My size is 65" With and approx. 68to 70" in Length !! "  ($110.00 for that size. I can make them smaller for $ 95.00 pls. ship.) & my "BASIC DIAMONDS."($150.00..Because, they take 'twice' as long to create and 'twice' as much yarn !(must crochet with 2 yarns at the same time. IT DOES MAKE FOR A 'RICHER' AFGHAN.)
with 'CUSTOM COLORS' YOU CHOOSE.
Plus ship. ( I do purchase all my yarn from Retail Stores at Retail prices.) & I do  hand-create these MYSLEF)  oh, YES...I DO create Bedspreads too.
(All OTHER AFGHANS..you may write me about creating one for you) price will depend on Design and Size.
(How's that for coming 'back' from that
'mild' stroke' !)

A Peek of 'my jacket/sweaters..more on following pages.
 Here, again, is one I 'love' to wear!! Goes with 'anything' !This is 'finished view'. (I'm in the process 'right now' 4/27/01 in creating a Long Coat just like this.....but 'no' border')
(I am 'sharing' the 'basic' instructions with you........Not 'complete' ones. They are not available yet.(and they will be 'for sale'...(but I'm adding FREE ONES to this site....this is 'my life'.)
If you'd like to 'know' when they will be...ready......Please, SIGN ANY OF MY GUESTBOOKS...... I will write you from there
.
If you'd like 'more detailed instructions....come back to me....future pages will have them!!
I will 'try' to tell you step-by-step ...from casting on stiches to 'finished'  Jacket !!

Now below ....... I will show as many 'views' as possible as I was creating this.
         (view of Body..I crochet in one piece. )                             (see how I end 'sleeve'? to match 'body')
                                     If You have ever 'sewn' it is the 'basic' idea of pattern !
For ALL OTHER INFORMATION..write me.

Here is 'sewn together view'.
I hope you get the idea.....

Notice how you begin crocheting 'border' from bottom..up to around Neck.. then 'Down' again other side !
Nearly finished, note the 'sleeves'....I add 'border to them 'last' ,

Here are some 'completed 'views' of this Sweater/ Jacket........

Border Completed ! Note, Collar is automatically created as well.
(also, the more 'rows' you add to the border the Larger the Jacket becomes, can be 'double-breasted' etc.)
You can create this 'without' any border !   The variations are limitless.  Use YOUR Imagination


Remember ........... You must crochet 'the borders' all the way
AROUND THE WHOLE JACKET...........GO TO MY 'OTHER ' PAGES , on each one there will be just 'a little more' information
for you .   And............ if you crochet, even just a little...........you may be able to figure it out.
