1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help me - what is this fabric and where can I find it? on: January 24, 2008 12:10:09 PM
So I found a coat that I absolutely LOVE. But they are out of stock. OK, not a problem. I sat down and looked at all the photos and figured out the basic pattern for making it myself.

The problem is, I have no clue what kind of fabric to make it out of!

It says it's a wool acrylic blend - and I don't have to find the exact woven pattern this is - I just want something similar, something that will be a warm weight, that will flow and flatter like this stuff.

Any ideas?

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need pattern suggestions... on: January 07, 2005 04:02:59 PM
Ok, I'll admit it. I lurked around here for a while, then finally saw a project mentioned that made me break down and join yet another forum >.<

So I'm making the Happy Hat based on the Fraggle hat, mentioned here previously. I'm making it in a lovely varigated yarn, that I've got tons and tons of. I am also making some funky legwarmers to match, and I want to do a fitted sweater cardigan as well.

Problem is, I've never done a sweater.

I've got a nice double-ended zipper, 29 " long, that I snitched off a different sweater I bought that ended up being deconstructed.

So I need an easy sweater pattern, preferably something that will match the stitch style in the Happy hat (ie, the ribbing for an inch then the rest stockinette) I am also very picky, I don't like fancy junk around the shoulders, just clean lines.

I can totally draw the sweater I'm thinking of, I've just got no clue how to make it. I want it to kind of be my first adventure into shaping.

Free patterns are always preferred, but if you know of a buyable pattern that sounds exactly like what I want, let me know.

And if it's a button front, I can figure out how to put a zipper in instead (I do sew, so some modification isn't a problem).

So pleaseplease help, if you know a great simple clean lined sweater pattern, let me know.

(Also, since I'll be adding shortrows in the bust to fit me better, I think the less ribbing the better, since I don't want to brave shortrows whilst doing ribs)
