I'm looking to knit a small gauge cardigan or jacket. All the ones that I like (such as IK's minimalist) are knit with bulky or worsted yarn. I'd really prefer to knit with sock or sport weight. Can anybody help me out?
I'm using cosmic pluto's short-row heel tutorial, and I'm getting confused. I'm about to start the "tricky" part, where you pick up the wraps. I knit back to the last stitch that I wrapped on the RS, and then insert my needle in to the wrap, and then into the stitch. Then I'm supposed to knit the two together somehow, I just don't get how. Can anyone spell it this next step for me?
In my lovely post-finals week free time, I've knit a baby blanket. I've gotten it to about the right size, and I'd like to know how I can put on a lace edging. I'd like something leafy, but I really don't know where to start! Some of the edgings I've seen are made separately then (presumeably) sewn on. I'd prefer not to do this. Does anybody have any tips for edgings, or where I can find something that might work for me? Thanks.
I feel kinda silly asking, but I've looked everywhere I can possibly think of! I saw this hat pattern a while ago. The thing about this hat, it was ridiculously quick to make. You used some obscenely large needles and like 4 strands of worsted. And you only cast on 30 sts. Does anybody know what I'm talking about, or (more importantly) where to find this pattern? Thanks, craftsters!
Our school musical this year is The Pirates of Penzance. (I was cast as Ruth ) Anyway, my director (who knows I knit because I made him a scarf for christmas) asked me to knit something for the production. He told me he wanted one of the pirates to be knitting the whole time. I asked him what he wanted me to knit and he said something colorful and unexpected. I told him that I could do a pirate flag, and the man nearly jumped up and down he was so happy. So one week later, here is my result.
It's still on the circs because it is going to be "worked on" during the performance. I'm really proud of it, and I get my name in the program twice!
I've gotten a drop spindle as a christmas gift, and some roving to go with it. My mom bought this roving, and bless her heart, it's not what I would have chosen to spin with, especially as a beginner. But anyway, it's all I have so I'm trying to work with it. The sheet that came with the roving says "gotland" and after a bit of research I found that gotland is scratchy and rough. I've tried spinning it, and it's really hard to draft. Is this because of the roving, or just a problem that I have? Thanks!
I've been promised a drop spindle for christmas by my parents, but they're leaving the choosing up to me, because they have no knowledge of such things. I've been searching around online, and I was wondering: What's the difference between a Turkish drop spindle, and a regular low whorl spindle?
My friend gave me this great idea. For christmas, I'm going to make my friends' boyfriends mini crochet versions of their girlfriends. Little dolls, modeled after my buddies. I was wondering a few things. Does anybody know of any amigurumi patterns of people? and what is the best way to attach hair? thanks!
I've been asked to make a Harry Potter scarf for a friend, and I want to line it. As in, make the scarf and then put a piece of cloth on the back of it. Has anyone tried this? I'm planning on using Lion Brand Wool-Ease, and would this affect then lining? Thanks for any help.
