HI ! I just finished mine and i LOVE IT!! It was SO easy to do - I used size 11, and double strand of Caron Simply soft in "soft blue" color - 1 1/2 skeins .... Took jsut a few days to work up - pretty warm too! I couldnt wait to wear it today! I am in the middle of my 5th month of pregnancy as you can see and this sweater will be excellent to wear over my tank tops as my belly cont. to grow! I am def. going to make more - thanks for the pattern!!!
Hi - I was out sick last week from work and made 2 sweaters for my little furry girl - The pink one is done from a pattern tear off sheet I got at AC Moore and the Baseball Tee was done from the "Tricksy & Peanut" book on making dog sweaters - Such cute patterns in there! I want to make them all for her! Last is a pic of baby uggs i did for my niece from a pattern here on craftster - Love this website!
Hi - I am 5'8" and I did 7" of the rib and 18" of the mock rib, and i liked the way it came out - however if you want it to be roomy, or if you are more busty then me, then i would totally do 8 or 9" of 2X2....Again, I was using simply soft with a size 9 needle....Here is the photo again if you want to see....
Here is my first 'real" sweater with sleeves - It is a pattern from the sept. Creative Knitting magazine , on page 15. - I used 2.5 balls of Softy Chunky black with a size 10 needle - The pink bow was just some scrap yarn i had - I plan to make many different kinds/colors of bows to switch out through the eyelet round at the top, so that i can have different looks and pic which color I want to change it to - It came out pretty much just the way I wanted, so I am happy :-)
Here is my version of this project! I loved it! I did 222 st. for rib for 7.5" and then 111st for mock rib for 18.5" - I used size 9 circs and 2 skeins of simply soft in this great pumpkin fall color - what do you think? :-)
Hi everyone! Ok - so going away this weekend i needed a new bikini cover up - i made up this pattern using my size 35 needles and then my size 17 to do the waist band... the whole project only took be about 2.5 hrs to make! I got a lot of compliments over the weekend.... i used simple white acrylic and used only a small ammount of yarn -
Here is photos of the skirt, and my friends thought it would look cute as a wrap top too!
It is 3 rows of garter, then one row with Knit one, YO twice, then the next row drop the 2 yo, and knit - then 3 rows garter again! Then change to the smaller needles to do the waist band all in garter.... I cast on 30 st. in all ....
Here is the result of a sweater that i had started for myself, that somehow got off track, so i converted it into a sweater for my little darling Sasha - She is a 1 year old chihuahua who weighs 12lbs! Isnt she super cute? The design of the sweater allows me to attach her leash to her harness - so it is perfect!!
Hey everyone - this is the pattern posted by "Flapperjack" a while ago - I finished the cabled tube top and then made a matching long sleeve shrug to go with it! I got so many compliments when i wore it out that night! Thanks flapperjack - great pattern & easy too! I used 2 Skeins of Lion Jiffy, and a size 9 cir. needle - ( i couldnt find her original post with the pattern, but if anyone has that link, please post it here ) Thanks!
this pattern really is easier then it looks! I dug it up to share with you guys! The eyelash just stays fluffy, while the wool will felt for you! you can make it bigger, but i made the "clutch" version - Anyway - here is the pattern....
With Wool, CO 40 St work in garter ( k all st ) for 7 rows Next row - KNIT 13, BIND OFF 14, KNIT 13 Next row - KNIT 13, CAST ON 14, KNIT 13 Work in garter for 4 rows, wool only Next row - Add funny yarn - work both strands tog. for 20 rows Work 8 rows garter WOOL ONLY for bottom of bag Add funny again and work for 20 rows Work in garter for 4 rows, wool only Next row, KNIT 13, BIND OFF 14, KNIT 13 Next row, KNIT 13, CAST ON 14, KNIT 13 work in garter for 7 rows BIND OFF Fold in half, sew side seams, weave in ends
FELTING - Fill washer to lowest level with hot water let washer agitate in its longest cycle ( dont let water run out, may have to repeat several times ) Check for desired size every 10 min when bag is felted to your satisfaction, Press the water out of bag, and let it spin until the end of the spin cycle Shape bag and let dry - ALL DONE!!! (** I found when felting, next time i would use a garment bag, as it seemed a little rough and i had to re-sew some of my seams... this was my 1st felting project and was fun & easy( once i figured out the tricky cast on for the bag handles...) :-) Have fun making this one & show us all pics when you do!! ~ Sammy
Yes - it is the red heart tear sheet poncho! This is a great pattern if you havent made it yet - Here is a pic of me wearing it! I want to make another maybe with a contrasting color for the bow/pompom part....
