Nothing special but the first thing I have completed in ages Grin The pattern is Candlestick. It's a lovely pattern and very easy and quick to knit, although the 18m size just fits him and he only turned 1 yesterday Smiley

2  World Book Day in Costumes: Completed Projects by withoutfear on: March 04, 2011 02:36:17 AM
Has anyone else been making costumes for World book Day this year? My son went as the cat in the hat. It was a lot of fun to make but I wish I hadn't left it 'til the last minute Undecided

I used Mama Lusco's tutorial to make the hat except I topstitched either side of the stripes to give it a more solid, finished look and used extra thick felt for the brim. Sorry about the blur, my phone camera doesn't have a flash and it's impossible to get him to stand still for 5 seconds lol.

7  Re: panta! (from a finnish pattern). in Knitting: Completed Projects by withoutfear on: May 13, 2006 07:55:33 PM
Here's an example that may help.


Excuse the bad photo, I had to sharpen it up a lot. Basically it's just like a rectangle of ribbed knitting and you increase on the wrong side every 2" (if you're knitting a 20" panta). This makes the purl part of the ribbing wider. Does that make any sense? I'm awful at explaining things Tongue I found that the thing that threw me the first time was figuring out which side was the right side.

This was the first thing I ever knit and I can remember how confusing it seemed and how many times I had to rip the f*$&ing thing out. Best advice is just to knit a test one (use chunkier yarn and needles if you don't want to spend too long knitting it) and follow the pattern carefully. Look at how the knit and purl stitches look on the needle as this will help if you get lost in the pattern (knit stitches=scarf, purl stitches=noose).
