111  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Supermodel Chevron Scarf Needs Help on: November 08, 2004 10:34:34 AM
I found another thread on Craftster that seems like an easy way to avoid a wrong side, and it is the Double Sided Stockinette Stitch Tutorial at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=8542.0 .  The problem is that my brain is having a really hard time trying to combine the stitch pattern of chevron stripes with the "2 sides on one needle" idea.

If you want to make this scarf with only one point, then you will need to do only one repeat of the pattern.  Increase the number of knit stitches (eg: CO 25; Row 1: K2, inc 1 (knit front and back of stitch), K8, sl 1, k2tog, psso, K8, inc 1 (front and back), K2;  Row 2: K2, P21, K2)

If I wanted wider than 25 stitches, say, 50, would I just double everything you told me?  For instance: k16, sl 2, etc.  Or do I still slip one and only always increase knit stitches?

For Christmas this year, I want to do several hand-knit things (I am broke and tricking myself into thinking only shopping for yarn will save money, har!), and among them are the first 2 "boy projects" I will do.   I want to do 2 scarves in a two color wide-striped chevron stitch, but with only one point, like this:
|           |*
|\         /|
|\\       //|
|\\\    ////|
|\\\\\//////|
|\||||||||||||/|
| \|||||||||/ |
|  \\\\//   |
|    \/     |
|           |*etc.
I have already found the free pattern at Straw.com/Crystal Palace (http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/shimmer_chev_scarf.html) but I do not like how it looks.  What I was envisioning would look a lot more, well, professional (one of my friends is a model so the less hand knit it looks, the better).  Is there a way I can knit this without those huge center seams, multiple points, or a wrong side?  I do not have mad knitting skills, but I can figure out most things, I have just never made up a pattern on my own before, and these are important things to get right- even thought they are not boyfriend sweaters- since they are gifts.
Oh yeah, I planned on using Lion brand Wool-Ease worsted weight, unless you have a better suggestion.
Thanks!

114  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / MENTOR(s) WANTED: Starting my own tee business. on: October 15, 2004 08:18:32 PM
I am 20 and am suddenly realizing I should really start my own t-shirt business.  I imagine it would end up something like DSGN or OK 47 (google them).  What I really need is a mentor or few that can help me get started silk-screening my designs and know where to get some really nice blank t shirts (and/or: good fit, high thread count, interesting cut).

 I have a friend who can help me set up a web page, a PayPal account, some friends and local bands already interested, and plan on selling a few designs to VirginThreads.com.  All I have to start with now are some rough sketches and the really strong desire to create what I have always wanted to wear .  If you can help me with any of this, or some advice you have learned the hard or easy way, I would love to hear it.  Thanks so much

115  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Show me your mad hand-dyeing skills on: September 02, 2004 10:19:57 PM
I have been lurking around Craftster for a long time without registering, but I want to know how to do this so badly that I needed to join now.  Please help, as I am in desperate need of not spending $45 on this shirt.  Sorry, there was no other picture.

I want to know how to hand-dye a shirt so it will look this awesome, hopefully without spending too much money.....I use a lot of Rit dye.  I tried to google it but all I found were tie-dye techniques.  Please help a poor student who needs to keep warm in a shirt like this.
