1  Shaker rib gone wonderfully wrong..? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by SpinningNickel on: June 22, 2011 04:14:03 AM
Hullo all,

I've been making this cowl:
http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=4871&cps=21191 at a nice leisureley pace on my morning commute. Having never done a shaker rib before, and with a fairly small photo, I wasn't sure how it should look. I also have a bad habit of not reading patterns thoroughly enough before I begin, causing me no end of troubles!

As such, rather then doing a p1, k1BELOW, I enthusiastically embarked on a pattern of p1, k1BACK. This has created a really lovely, raised sort of twist on one side, and a flat plait-like pattern on the other. According to my more recent Google imaging, this is most definiteley NOT a shaker rib. I love the look of the twists for something like a cowl, so that's fine, but I would quite like to know what it IS. Any ideas?

Just a quick (not-very-good) mobile phone snap of the twists:

2  SNES mini messenger bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by SpinningNickel on: September 27, 2010 01:14:13 PM
Hello all!

First time posting a project here, and first time doing a bag! The husband and I are off to a gaming event in a few days and I've been working my tail off trying to get this finished in time so I could take it with me. I've finally managed it tonight.

The bag is all crocheted in sc. The top, bottom, back, front, and flap are all one long piece; I worked ws when I got to the "seams" to give the illusion of separate pieces, and also to create a boxy, messenger-bag style. The whole thing, including the strap, is lined with plain black fabric, which has been hand sewn as I don't have a machine. (I'm rubbish at sewing, so the lining is by far the most disappointing part of the whole work, but it was necessary to keep everything from stretching out.) The body has also been interfaced with a medium, iron-on interfacing, so it holds the shape really nicely. ^^ Enjoy!
