1  Urban Outfitters scarf- deciphering the stitch pattern! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by vpop on: October 23, 2007 05:58:03 PM
I was at Urban Outfitters today, and saw this scarf.

I stared at awhile, trying to see if I could figure out the pattern just by looking at it, but I just couldn't figure it out.  Anyone have any ideas of what this stitch pattern is?  All I can tell you is that the yarn was worked double, and the back of it looked vaguely like the wrong side of stockinette stitch. Here's a close up of it:


Thanks in advance, guys!

2  Felted Triangle Bag- yay! in Knitting: Completed Projects by vpop on: September 01, 2006 04:51:57 PM
Just finished this one up!



For scale, so you can see how big it is:



Pattern used: Pick Up Sticks Triangle Bag, purchased at Jimmy Beans
Yarn used: Cascade 220, Charcoal and Ballerina Pink, 2 skeins each

I only had a few issues with it, the first being that it took 4 or 5 (I lost count) times through the wash for the pink part to lose its stitch definition.  The grey part was nice and fuzzy by the second cycle, and actually was getting icky and sheddy the more times I ran it through the wash.  You can actually still see some stitch definition in the pink part, but I just lost my patience and thought, "eh, good enough."  I think that it could've taken so long because it was a light color and light colors take longer to felt, or it was because it was knit relatively tightly (2 strands on size 10 needles).

The second issue I had was doing the decorative stitching- running a tapestry needle through thick, felted fabric hurt my fingers after awhile!  I had to take a break inbetween doing the band and straps because I think my fingers developed calluses from all the tugging and pushing.  Tongue

All in all, it was an easy and straightforward pattern, and I'm pleased with how it turned out!

(Edited to fix the weird proportions of the 2nd pic)

Hey all!  I know I may be a bit late joining in on the fun, but I just stumbled on this thread two weeks ago and it started my obsession with all things perler! 

Here's what I've made so far:


The Ice Climbers, the ubiquitous Bob-omb, Bubble Bobble, Moogle, Starfi, Kirby, Hamtaro, and Tanooki Mario!

When I was hunting around my local craft stores to find supplies, they only had the huge buckets of assorted beads.  I knew that everyone on this thread recommended not getting the assortment and get the individual packets instead, but I was too impatient to wait to order individual color packets online; I wanted to start projects NOW.  So I was like, "hey, I have a high threshhold for mundane tasks, I can *totally* sort through this bucket of 6000 beads."  Um yeah, I didn't feel that way by the time I got to the bottom of the bucket, hours and hours later.  So after that, I decided that it was best for my sanity (and strained neck) to order individual colors.  You guys were right, it's SO worth it.  Cheesy

Well, after a quick wash with Eucalan, my yarn didn't smell vinegary anymore, and I was ready to knit!  Here's my first project!  The pattern can be found here.





Made with 1 skein of "Sealing Wax".  It's super soft and not at all scratchy.  In fact, this is the very first wool I can wear without my skin getting irritated (and I'm pretty sensitive!).
