1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / What I finished this week! ***Now with Big Fat Cable Scarf Tute*** on: October 23, 2007 07:25:30 PM
Here's a better pic of the BR hat from metaphysical muse's fabulous pattern:

Hat was cascade lanawool, and the button is hand hammered copper that I got at the antique store.

1 skein cascade magnum + size 35 needles + 3 hours =

SnB go everywhere cardigan. I couldn't get a decent action shot of this, so here it is laid out on the rug, at the mercy of Owen Meany...

Thanks for Looking!

ETA: I realized that what I wrote in the post later on was a little difficult to follow, since I don't really use patterns, so here's a nice shiny pattern for you for the Big Fat Cable Scarf...

Cascade Magnum - 1 skein
Size 35 Needles
Gauge is around 2st. per inch, not that it matters.

CO 12 St using knitted cast on (make a slip knot, knit this stitch onto the right  needle, then pass it back to the left needle. Knit into the space between those two stitches, then pass that stitch back onto the left needle etc. until you have 12)

Row 1: K1, P1, K1, K6, K1, P1, K1
Row 2: K1, P1, K1, P6, K1, P1, K1
Row 3, 5: Rep. row 1
Row 4, 6: Rep. row 2
Row 7: K1, P1, K1, Slip next 3 purlwise onto dpn or cable needle and move to front of work, K3, K3 from cable needle in the same order that they were slipped, K1, P1, K1
Row 8: Rep. row 2

Repeat these 8 rows until you're finished with the skein, ending on a row 6, then BO all stitches.

Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions, since this is the first pattern I've ever written out.

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Fast and easy santa hat? on: November 18, 2005 09:14:37 PM
Hi There!
I'm new to the board, but I thought I'd jump right in with a plea for help.  I need to make about 50 santa hats for my roller derby league.  THey need to be hot pink with black fur trim.  Can someone point me in the direction of a pattern or specs of some sort?  I'm assuming i'll make them out of felt, since it will probably be fastest and cheapest.  Any other thoughts and/or help would be apreciated.
