Hi everyone. I'm posting this here, since it's not a knit or crochet question, and 'm hoping someone can tell me what tool is being used in the first picture.
You'll see in the final pictures that these are dandelions, but I think if I change the colors they could be perfect thistles...and I love thistles!
and while I'm asking: What kind if thread/yarn is that? I'm a knitter and this looks thinner than yarn but thicker than embroidery floss to me.
This blog is written in Turkish, which I had translated, but it still doesn't read very well.
any help will be greatly appreciated. :0)
This looks like a version of the Hairpin Lace loom--it makes a special kind of lace--u can google it and it will lead u to You tube for instructions on how to make this pattern--good luck--this was one of my mother's favorite types of crochet--
looks like a varity of a Hair-pin lace tool. Love the way it makes a dandylion, agree wtih you that it wuld be a great thistle (would you like the ones in my flower bed LOL)
I have no idea what tool this is, but the dandelion is gorgeous. Thanks for showing it to us. :thumbup:
Looks like a crochet fork for hairpin lace or sometimes called Maltese lace.!
It looks like embroidery floss to me
Hairpin lace tool.Those dandilions are beautiful :-D
The tool is for hairpin crochet and there is a simple idea for a cheap substitute herehttp://www.homemadetools.net/crocheting-loom

So, the dandelion.
For dandelion we need remnants of cotton yarn:
Summer of YarnArt yellow;
Original from green Merve.
Actually, I wanted to make of woolen threads. But those in the house was not there. And I realized that the Summer (or equivalent) is ideal, as It has a separate viscose thread and flower looks interesting, "with the tide."
In addition, the plug will need to knit (I have a width of 6 cm), rugged not thick yellow thread (I h / b Lily YarnArt), thin needle, a needle gypsy, PVA glue, knife, wire (for the stem and thinner - for leaf ).
Thank you..pictures sometimes do speak a thousand words
OMG this forum is AMAZING!!!!! ...all my answers and more! Thank you all.
now gives me an idea or two! thanks!
Wow! That is beautiful... I'm stumped for adjectives...
I use a much longer but similar tool to make yarn hair with a center part for my cloth doll making. Just cut the loops and stitch or glue on head and arrange.
Love the dandelions
the thread could be perle cotton a type of embroidery thread it comes in several sizes
The thread looks more like a size 10 crochet cotton than perle cotton or embroidery floss to me. Just MHO.
