1  Aviator Hat and 2 Scarves (7 pics) in Knitting: Completed Projects by berenicevlz on: January 19, 2008 04:51:42 AM
Hello Everyone!

I know about a million craftsters have done the aviator cap but I wanted to make it too! Smiley
I actually made this hat about 3 times because the pattern (found here: http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt07.htm) called for size 8 needles which made the hat huge, so I went down to size 7 and then finally size 4 needles. I made it with Red Heart Super Saver Worsted Yarn in Windsor Blue. This was actually my first FO on knitting needles.

Here's the one with the size 7 needles (sorry the picture is so bright):

as you can see it was a little too big one me...

For the one with size 4 needles I added an icord to each flap and two pompoms that I made myself.

And Another View:



The two scarves I did about a year ago on a knitting loom.

The first one I made using two different yarns and I added tassels to the end. I found this one especially handy during my trip to Arizona last Christmas, and since it was made on a loom it didn't take long at all to make. It's actually taller than me at about 6 ft! (I'm short though, 5'0")

On me:


And modeled by our snowman:



The second scarf was made for my sister with some fun yarn. She wanted a skinny scarf so I decided to make her one. I knitted this one on the loom as well, but as a flat panel.

Modeled by my sister:


Hope you guys enjoyed this. Comments are appreciated and thank you for looking! Smiley

2  Wrist Warmers and Doggy Sweater on loom! in Knitting: Completed Projects by berenicevlz on: December 13, 2006 04:55:03 PM
I've always wanted wrist warmers and I found this great, easy pattern for making them on a loom here:

So without further ado here they are (sorry if it's a lil blurry)


I also made a sweater for my chihuahua on the loom, as well as a little hat with holes for her ears! She loves it!


and another


Feel free to tell me what y'all think! Smiley

3  First Recon Ever! Shirt to Shirt! LoL :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by berenicevlz on: January 21, 2006 09:54:03 PM
So a few days ago I decided to try reconstruction after seeing all the wonderful stuff on board. I chose a shirt that I use to sleep since I didn't want to mess up any of my good shirts...I made it smaller, made it into a v-neck, fixed the sleeves, and also made it shorter since it was way too long!

Anywho I know its really plain but I'm really proud!

Before:


Me wearing it with my pigtails!:


 Do y'all have any suggestions on making it better?

Thank you so much for this tutorial I finally made my own messenger bag! Even though I didn't really do everything exactly ( I have my own techniques) it came out really well! I even added a little bag inside to put my pens and such!
