Ah! I see.  ;D

But, being a slightly pedantic sort of person, surely, daisy patterns made that way are not crocheted in the true sense as was suggested:
Quote
... a daisy maker... that you use to make crochet daisies ...
That form of construction is more like the "pin art" of the 1970s, where pictures were formed by winding thread around small nails / pins hammered through a paper template (which was later removed) and into a wooden base usally first covered with black felt [but not to be confused with the "3D pin art" of the 1980s that appears to be making a comeback in some places].

How could I possibly have missed the development of this thread!?!?!  Firstly, a daisy maker, what a good idea - I need one - that link Rosie gave on eBay - dang it, someone's bought it!

As for the pin-art pictures of the 1960s/70s - I LOVE these - I saw a wicked Butterfly one in a chariddy shop recently but it was a tad overpriced so I didn't buy it (hubby wouldn't let me actually - booo hiss).  They always make me think about a television documentary about the life of George Best that we saw fairly recently.  When he first went to play for Man United he lodged with a nice old lady (I forget her name) and they showed footage of George being brought a cup of tea by his landlady whilst he's sitting in her living room making a pin-art picture!  Those were the days eh - when top flight footballers lodged with old ladies and made pin-art pictures in their spare time...

Hello Pip, so glad you dropped by ;D.......do you take sugar? Do have one of Skegby's biscuits!! :)

Have you got any alternative uses to suggest?......a minimum of three per person is required.

Yes, I had the Daisy Maker on watch, and the next thing I knew was it was gone......I was going to buy it for KevH as a little peace offering!!! >:D

Anne, hide that ring holder, remember, I collect green glass!

Excellent!!!.....have another biscuit Pip!! :clap:

I had thought perhaps a miniature bird bath (prongs down of course!) for one of those little miniature gardens that children make for flower show competitions.

 :o OMG - crocheted hot pants - now there's a thing!  It's a look very few can carry off successfully (not even the alleged 'cute famous model' on the pattern cover!) 

I did joke with my OH once that I'd knit him a suit - now I'm thinking that a pattern for a knitted suit probably does exist somewhere!

Anne, black and white is the new red you know, and soooooooooooooo classic. ;)
 
KevH could always knit a large Afghan to wear over it .........Come on KevH, you know Afghan stitch......a cross between crochet and knitting? (No daisies involved here!).

Ok Pip, here's the challenge.........the first to find a knitting pattern for a mans suit......are you up for it? :clap:
