1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: please help me remember this pattern... on: December 20, 2006 12:59:31 PM
Thanks for all of the suggestions!

The garn studio pattern was exactly the one that I was thinking of, it's very similar to the No Knit Cravat.

I spend so much time browsing through patterns online and I always think I'll be able to find them again when I need them....

Anyway, this is what I'm going to attempt to knit tonight.

Thanks again!

Actually, it was more of a large leaf shape at the end, or an upside-down heart shape.  After the leaf shape, the scarf narrows slightly.  I'm pretty sure that you cross the scarf at this narrow area in order to fasten it around your neck. 

It's really hard to explain because I can't remember it well, just that it would be perfect for auntie....

Any other pattern suggestions along the neck-warmer lines would be appreciated!

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to make a short scarf/neckwarmer for my aunt for the winter. 

There is a pattern I remember thinking would be perfect for her, but now I can't find it!

It was a short scarf pattern that had a large leaf at each end and sort of folded or maybe one end inserted into the other to fasten.

Can anyone suggest a pattern that sounds something like this one, I think it's fairly popular.

Hi traceypoo,

I actually just finished the "funnel neck tunic multi" last night!  I made some changes to the pattern though; I made mine with a boat neckline and I could not figure out part of the sleeve pattern. 

The pattern for it is VOGUEknitting Holiday 2005.

It worked up VERY quickly because I three strands of wool are held together and it is knit on huge needles (you're right, it's just a big tube done on circs with a little bit of shaping)

However, it doesn't give very good instructions for finishing the pockets.

Also, a quick question, for interests sake, does anyone know how to "cast on 14 sts and p these new sts" then continue on with the row.  It seems to me that to purl the newly casted on stitches you would have to turn the work and purl back.  I just ignored it and it worked out fine, but I was wondering if this was a technique that i just don't know about?

Hi GirlyGirlBags,

The actual pieces of the double helix are appliqued onto the base piece.  I made the large rectangle part like a quilt one would piece together.  Then, I had cut out all of the other pieces and put them together like a puzzle and used a whole lot of pins to hold them all together as I stitched them in place.  I had left a small seam allowance around the edge, so I turned it under as I sewed each piece in place.

The word along the bottom edge is embroidered with blue wool.  That was the hardest part.  Denim is definitely difficult to work with at times!

To everyone else, thanks for all of the compliments!

Hey huongandmatthew,

Excellent construction on your skirt! I love to sew without a pattern.  That turned out really well!

Hey KatieJoy,

Your bag reconstrution turned out really well!

My friend and I make bags just like that to sell at farmer's markets in the summer.  It's one of my favourite projects.

Hi KatieJoy!

It's 70 cm by 60 cm...I meant to add that in the original post!

(I'm a huge science geek too....I guess I"ve already made that obvious)

Thanks! cas

Hi all,

I came across craftster awhile ago, but haven't posted anything yet.  One day while exploring, I came across Craft Challenge 6 and decided that I really wanted to get involved.

This project is something that I dreamed up one day and have thought about making for awhile now.  Obviously, this challenge inspired me to actually pull it off.  All of the pieces of the double helix are appliqued to the base and the word "jeanome" at the bottom is embroidered on.

I've been trying to resize my pictures, but I haven't quite got it yet.  Hopefully these show up, but in case they don't I'll include the links.

Blue Jeanome Project

Thanks a lot for looking, and thanks for all the inspiration! I hope to keep posting in the future.


edited to add: Well, I guess I should say exactly what my project IS.  It's a wallhanging; a random piece of art that's a play-on-words as well.  ooooo, I feel so new at this. c.
