2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / :: Habu Kusha Kusha Scarf :: on: April 25, 2007 04:21:45 PM
It' comes as a kit from habu textiles, but one can also buy just yarn: silk wrapped stainless steel(A-20) and fine merino(A-33) and just knit it in a rectangle, thanks to stainless steel you can give it any shape when it's finished.
This is a kit from Habu Textiles http://www.habutextiles.com/webfile/kit-78.html

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / :: Finished outfit, knit skirt :: on: March 21, 2007 03:38:01 PM

Urchin Beret aka Transformer Hat (My free pattern http://www.olgajazzy.com/blog/fo/transformerhat.pdf ): Handknit by me from Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky Naturals yarn in Lynx color couple months back.
Chanel cashmere sweater : a gift from a friend when I was leaving FL.
Unknown suede belt: from Loehmann's.
Skirt: Handknit by me from Blue Sky Alpacas pattern and Debbie Bliss Alpaca DK yarn in 03/Sage (scored a bag from Stitches East last October, used only 6 skeins for the skirt)
It has been knit on US 2 (3 mm) Addi Turbo Circulars, takes time, but that way the skirt doesn't sag at your bottom when you sit down. Took about a month to make as my "take to movies" project and in between other commitments.
Leggins: Target
Boots: Nine West

update: Here is the pattern. Enjoy!

Transformer Hat
One size fits most
Materials:
2 skeins of Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky Naturals (color Lynx), 50% wool, 50% alpaca
US 15 and US 17 Addi Turbo Circular needles
If you have those sizes in DPN they would work even better!
Weight: 100 grams
Approx: 45 yards / 41 meters
Gauge: 2 sts per inch

With US 15 needles cast on 48 sts. Join them in a round carefully not to twist and start knitting in:  purl 1, knit 1 ribbing. At the joint place a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each row.  After 1st round is complete switch to the US 17 needles and proceed in the same manner.
When the worked rounds reach 27 (inc. the cast on row), start the decrease row next for the top of the hat.
For Mushroom Effect with bigger curled brims outside I suggest to work the hat 5 rounds more and then start the decrease round.
Decrease round1: *k2tog, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1* repeat ** throughout the row. In the last repeat in this row do not knit the last k1 stitch. It is the part of the next rounds k2tog.
Decrease round 2: *k2tog, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1* throughout the row. In the last repeat in this row do not knit the last p1 stitch. It is the part of the next rounds k2tog
Decrease round 3: *k2tog, p1, k1, p1, k1* throughout the row. In the last repeat in this row do not knit the last k1 stitch. It is the part of the next rounds k2tog
Decrease round4: *k2tog, p1, k1, p1* throughout the row. In the last repeat in this row do not knit the last p1 stitch. It is the part of the next rounds k2tog
Decrease round5: *k2tog, p1, k1* throughout the row. In the last repeat in this row do not knit the last k1 stitch. It is the part of the next rounds k2tog
Decrease round6:*k2tog, p1* throughout the row. In the last repeat in this row do not knit the last p1 stitch. It is the part of the next rounds k2tog
Decrease round7:   *k2tog* all row.
You should have 6 sts left. Pull yarn through them, tie and secure them inside.
Weave in the cast on tail. I suggest to gentle hand wash in warm water and lay flat to dry.
