You may also, before you invest $ into the design to check w/ your local embroidery store that you plan on going to, that this design you want is not breaking any copy right issues too.  I know the store we have here, WILL NOT embroider any copy right logos etc.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP >with a scarf (accomplished a hat tho!!) on: November 16, 2008 09:00:35 AM
Hi gang

I don't normally knit, I am a big time sewer however; winter is here and my kids are just about fed up w/ fleece hats that are sewn... so I decided to get into the groove of things and started knitting again.

I found this basic pattern for a hat done on circular needles, then towards the end you change out to dpn to finish it. My first hat came out great except for the fact ........ OMG it was HUGE!!! it was like a hat that wouldn't even fit George Lopez head! lol.

anyhow, as i was trying to figure out what the heck i did wrong, it ended up that the instructions given were basic instructions but at the very bottom (which i missed) it said that if you are a continental knitter to go down a size in needles. Which i am a continental knitter. So I went down a size in the needles and wala the second hat came out great and my neice was home from a college break and she took it back w/ her so I dont' have it to post a pic. I am now working on a second one for my daughter that will match her winter coat (hot pink)

Huh NOW, i want to make my daughter a scraf to match this hat.............but as i recall years before when i did more knitting then i do now, that every scarf i made alway tend to roll on both sides (edges) how do i avoid that?  Huh I want this scarf to lay nice and flat.........any suggestions?


My daughter's hat i am doing in a basic 4ply yarn, i believe it's red heart or caryon (single yarn) using 4mm needles. When i finish it, i will post a pic (just promise not to laugh!lol)


Thanks for any help or suggestions!  Grin

Oh yes, if you see on the larger one, I had to add sorta like a triangle piece that was opened at the top to fit that 1" strap. Look at the blue'ish dotted one.. I think i took a close up of the handle... I just played around w/ this sorta triangle piece to were it fit snuggly in the top base of the side gusset and tapered to a 1" opening for the strap to fit in and then sewed the strap in the 1" opening of the triangle.

hope that makes sense! Roll Eyes
