Fphdc and bphdc!! Arrghhhh
So done the sole of the said booties, and today got up all inspired to get maybe the body of the bootie done .. Only to find the body is made up of fphdc’s and bphdc’s .. Never done that before!?
So I researched, I watched a tutorial and struggled and unraveled I don’t know how many times! But in the end I GOT IT! And I can see now what the stitch is useful for. I can’t believe this hasn’t come up in other stuff I’ve done. But I’m thinking maybe this alternating of the abides stitches gives you a cable effect, so perhaps it’s used on clothes and baby booties etc .. Therefore I have not done stuff like that. So I’m very proud of myself. I’ve learned 2 new stitches and the first row of them looks great! Woot! I really didn’t think I was gonna get .. I kept doing the stitches and then having a look and it was just jumbled up knots lmao!
Now it’s a nice uniformed back and forth edge. Which now I have to do another round putting each stitch above the next. Ie: fphdc’s on previous fphdc’s and bphdc’s over previous bphdc’s. I hope it works .. I can’t wait till I have some more spare time. Cause I’m SO c,one to doing the crocodile stitch, which is one of my fav’s. So I’m looking forward to her TINY crocodile stitch. If you do the stitch with dc’s like normal you get scales that are too big for 0-2. So she does hdc’s instead.
I want to see how this tiny scale looks! :)
So that’s me in a rather large and rambling nutshell for today :p
I’ll post photos tomorrow if I can get the last round of the body in.
