1  Re: Anthropologie-inspired capelet + Tutorial! in Knitting: Completed Projects by julsey723 on: March 30, 2008 12:33:48 PM
nice work fenifer! I really like your yarn choice!

Ok, so I joined the bandwagon, and hijacked my old thread back to post an FO (how strange is that?) I decided that the original capelet needed a makeover. In fact, it wasn't really a capelet anyway (by design a capelet is a short cape...since it has sleeves, it is a SHRUG or a BOLERO!)...

Anyhoo,  I gained a few pounds since 2005 (shame on me!), and realized I wasn't going to wear a sweater that showed off my least fave asset (tummy), so I added a LOT of length, and some button bands with the rest of the yarn I bought (in 2005) for this project...

Keep on knitting capelet-sters! FYI, this is the most viewed thread in the craftster completed projects forum (aside from sticky posts)!!!

Yes, that could work! Just bind off all of one color, then all of the other, and you have an oven mitt!

I tried my hand at the pattern offered free on knittinghelp.com to learn DK. I used some kind of Moda Dea yarn I picked up at AC Moore for about $2-3/skein. My next DK project will be a scarf for a friend (who loves hearts).

wow, absolutely EVERYONE is knocking this off...even Daisy Fuentes for Kohl's !!!  (who knew she had a clothing line? I sure didn't!) It was on sale for $25 in the store, but 100% scratchy acrylic.

Hi guys. Here's my finished Wicked. Don't mind the random unwoven end hanging from my arm....I used 3 skeins of Brooks Farm Solana purchased at Maryland Sheep & Wool earlier this year. This yarn was lovely, except where I attached a new ball to the left sleeve - the color difference was noticeable. If it's not too warm out, I'll wear it to Rheinbeck tomorrow!

6  Jaywalker Socks KAL in Knitalongs by julsey723 on: January 01, 2006 02:25:07 PM
Hi everyone! Happy New Year!!!

I noticed there was no craftster KAL for Grumperina's famous Jaywalker Socks, so I figured we need one!

Cara at January One  is hosting a KAL on her blog but there isn't a place to post questions if you need help. Don't forget to stop by and wish her a Happy Birthday!

For those of us (like me!) who've never knit socks before, let's do this thing together Smiley (And I may need help when I get to the heel...)

Here's my progress so far:

I'm using Vesper Sock Yarn on size 1 DPNs.

So, if you haven't cast on yet, what are you waiting for???

7  Anthropologie-inspired capelet - Pattern + Tutorial! in Knitting: Completed Projects by julsey723 on: November 07, 2005 10:21:44 PM
Have you seen this capelet from Anthropologie's Winter '05 collection? I think I figured out the pattern...Here are some photos of my interpretation, and the pattern. It's really easy (I started on Saturday!)




I used 1 balls of Rowan Polar on size 11 needles. (gauge = 12 st and 16 rows over 4)

CO 49 st
1 x 1 rib for 2 inches to create neckline

Raglan Increases: (you will need 4 stitch markers to separate the body into 5 sections: left front, left sleeve, back, right sleeve, right front)

Row 1, RS: k2, p6, yo, pm, p1, yo, p7, yo, pm, p1, yo, p15, yo, pm, p1, yo, p7, yo, pm, p1, yo, p6, k2
Row 2 and all WS rows: knit all stitches
Row 3 and all RS rows: k2, *p to next marker, yo, sl marker, p1, yo* repeat from * 3 more times, p until last 2 st, k2

Continue raglan increases until sleeve measures the circumference of your upper arm. End with a WS row.

Split sleeves and body:
RS: k2, p to 1st marker, move all st from 1st to 2nd marker onto scrap yarn (right sleeve).  P to 3rd marker.  Move all st from 3rd to 4th marker onto another piece of scrap yarn (left sleeve). P to last 2 st, k2.
WS: Knit all st
Continue in reverse stockinette stitch for 4 more rows
Switch to 1 x 1 rib, for 5 rows. BO all st

Sleeves:
Pick up all st from scrap yarn.
Work back and forth in 1 x 1 rib for 5 rows. BO all st
Seam ribbing on sleeves

Thats it, youre done!  This is easy, I swear! 
Finish with a pin at the neck, or sew a button on, whatever you want!
The other cool thing about this, is its reversible! I like the reverse st side better, its more vintage looking.

Here are some detail shots:


Thanks for looking!

Edit: oops...late night stitch counting leaves one (very important one) out...and adds one where it doesn't belong!

10  Re: Phildar Tendances KAL! in Knitalongs by julsey723 on: November 05, 2005 08:14:59 AM
Phildar patterns love to make you multiply!

1 x 1 m = increase (or decrease or bind off depending on the pattern) one stitch once
1 x 2 m = increase/decrease/BO two stitches once
2 x 1 m = increase/decrease/BO one stitch twice

Get the rhythm?  Sometimes that means one stitch at each end of the row - so be careful!



In other news...here's my swatch for tendances!  more to come soon!!!
