1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Legwarmers (Highwater Helpers!) on: November 14, 2007 11:13:24 AM
You know how when you pick up a baby its pants inevitably ride up?  And then their little legs are exposed to *gasp* AIR?  This is a winter nightmare for us moms.

I've had this so-called pattern posted on my blog for a while and though I should share with you guys.  These are a quick knit and good for boys and girls.  A great holiday gift.  

Materials
Yarn: Cascade Fixation. Substitute any sock yarn with elastic.
Needle: Size 3 27″ circular for Magic Loop method OR size 3 dpns

Size
6-9 months

Pattern

1. Cast on 40 stitches (inc by 4 st increments for larger legs) using long tail method and divide for magic loop or evenly on 4 dpns
2. knit in 31 rib (k3, p1) for 4 inches and cast off (not too tightly).

A cable cast on can be used for a more flexible opening, but I have found this unnecessary. The elastic in the yarn provides enough ease.

Materials
Yarn: Reynolds Cantata (cotton with memory) or any other to suit gauge.  Choose as many colors as you see fit!
Needles: Size 6 27" circular for magic loop method OR size 6 dpns
Notions: 3 stitch markers (one in a different color), yarn needle

Gauge
24 st/34 rows to 4 inches

Size
Newborn, 14" circumference, will stretch to 16".  length is 13"

Stripes
The striping pattern is meant to be any that you choose, using as many colors as you choose to suit 13 inches of hat.  Save time later by carrying the colors up the inside of the hat rather than cutting and rejoining yarn.

Pattern
  • Cast on 68 stitches
  • Join and place odd color marker one stitch after beginning of round, taking care not to twist work
  • Work even in stockinette for 6 inches
  • Knit one round placing remaining 2 markers after 23rd and 45th stitches
  • K2tog after every marker on every third row until 12 stitches remain

Finishing
Cut yarn and pull through stitches at top of hat, taking care to weave in the same direction as knitting.  Tuck end into top of hat.  
Make tassel using all colors and attach to top of hat.  Allow bottom edge to roll.


Please note that this pattern has only been tested by me.  Please contact me at sassystitchess@greatwhitewong.com with any questions and let me know if you encounter problems with the pattern--i want to be sure I post the correct information!
3  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Baccarat Knitalong on: October 04, 2005 06:12:25 AM
I just started Baccarat Player from MagKnits.  I know a lot of people have this on their knitlist and I wondered if anyone was interested in a knitalong?

Here's the pattern link: http://www.magknits.com/warm05/patterns/baccarat.htm

I've already deviated from the pattern!  I have frogged a misguided use of Classic Elite Inca Alpaca (color 1126, sort of a blue-green).  I am hoping that the fabulous drape of alpaca wool will create the desired effect on the tank!

Since the gauge on that yarn is 5.5 st to the inch (on sz 5), I have modified the pattern.  In addition, I decided to to a half inch of seed stitch around the bottom and am attempting to knit it in the round. I may also do some seed stitch at the edge of the drape... I think it may weight it down more.  I guess I was up for a challenge!

Just putting the feelers out there... hope some of you will join me!
