221  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re:SNB with a twist-- personalization & modifications on: February 20, 2004 10:44:41 AM
Whew!  I thought there was something wrong with me!  Ha!  Now I see that I'm just a type!   Kiss  I look at patterns as suggestions rather than directions.  My "Skully", for example, is made from cream colored yarn, with a heart on the sleeve.  Okay, only a teensie variation.  But now I'm working on the cardigan and I'm using mohair for the body and I'm going to make belled sleeves and put a seed stitched heart motif  around one wrist.  I'm going to edge it with a light green rayon.  I think it's going to be lovely.

I'm working on it.  I have the back finished.  I am making the body in a gorgeous mauve-y kind of mohair.  I put two strands together then changed the needle size until I got the gauge.  I am thinking of changing the sleeves though to make them bell rather than straight.  I figured I could just take the general shape from that other mohair sweater and make a few changes to the bottom of the sleeve.  I can't wait to see your pictures.

Hi,

I found a way that seems to work for me.  I made a hat for my boyfriend a few days ago.  I made sure to leave long tails ... like 8 inches.  I threaded each tail onto a tapestry needle (one at a time, of course) and carefully sewed (wove) the ends back and forth.  It was much easier with the needle rather than trying to pull them through with a crochet hook.  And you can't see them at all.

The Skully was my first project as well.  Unfortunately I neglected to check my gauge.  Fortunately I used cheap yarn. Kiss It was a good thing to get my chops back, so to speak, but I definitely check my gauge now, because it's such a cute sweater and I can't wear it.  Instead of doing the skulls I did a heart on the sleeve.  I will most probably make it again because I love the sleeves and the pictures that everyone else is posting of their finished projects. I agree - a second book with more patterns would be great!  I want to make nearly everything in that book.  Right now I'm starting on the cardigan.  But instead of sport yarn I'm making it with two strands of mohair.  I think it's going to look nice.

Knit on.

I have a question about checking one's gauge.  I want to use a yarn other than the one suggested for that cute little cardigan in SNB.  I have a beautiful fingering weight mohair, so I doubled it and made a test swatch using the size 4 needles suggested for the cardigan.  The rows come out right on target, but the width is a little short of 4 inches.  I can stretch it to make 4 inches easily enough.  My question is -- is there a way to cast on that will give me a bit more width?  Is that the way to get around this problem?  Or is there something else that I, as a newbie, just don't know about?  If anybody has run across this problem, I'd love to hear how you solved it because I really want to use this yarn for this sweater.

Thanks!!

Oh of course!  I've just recently started knitting and crocheting again after a bazillion years!  That makes perfect sense to do them first and then incorporate them into the edge of the hat.  

Thanks!

Hi there,

I just found this board today and am trying to resist delving deeper when I should be working.  Anyway ... I was watching the X Games last night and a snow boarder was wearing a crocheted hat with ear flaps.  I have been wanting to make just such a hat but haven't seen a pattern and danged if I can figure out how to make those flaps.  His hat (actually I saw 2 of them) did not look like the flaps were added on, but were done all of a piece.  Maybe I just wasn't seeing the seams.  Anyway, anybody out there have such a pattern?  I would be most grateful.

Thanks
Shelley
