41  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knifty Knitter? on: November 20, 2005 11:36:53 AM
I just bought a Knifty Knitter (a set of those round looms in various sizes) because it was on sale.  Now that I have it I realize it doesn't have with any patterns and I have no idea what to do with it.  I looked on their website and there are a few ugly patterns.  I was wondering if anyone has any patterns for these knitting looms things (legwarmers would be nice).

Thanks!!
42  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / questions about hat size on: November 18, 2005 08:23:05 AM
I am really new to knitting and still in the "making crappy scarves" stage, but I thought I would try my hand at a hat.  I found a pattern I want to give a shot.  My question....the pattern calls for CO 68 stitches....does this seem small to anyone?  I looked around at other hats and they all say 90-100 stitches.  This is an adult size hat.

Thanks!

EDIT:  Here is the pattern....


using worsted weight yarn and size 5 needles, cast on 68 stitches. Join, work 1 x 1 (knit 1, purl 1) ribbing for 6 rounds.
next round: knit 4 *knit 2, make 1 (use whatever increase method you like best)* to end. Switch to size7 or 8 needles, and work as follows:
round 1-3:*purl 1 (knit 1, purl 1) three times, knit 3; repeat from * to end of round.
round 4: *purl 1 (knit 1, purl 1) three times, cable 3; repeat from * to end of round.

if you prefer a bigger cable with smaller sections between, work this instead:
round 1-3:*purl 1 (knit 1, purl 1) two times, knit 5; repeat from * to end of round.
round 4: *purl 1 (knit 1, purl 1) two times, cable5; repeat from * to end of round.

work these two rounds until hat measures 11-12".
Next round: knit 2 together around.
next round: knit 2 together around.
Cut yarn, leaving a 10" tail, thread tail on yarn needle, weave through stitches on circular and pull to tighten the hole and close top of hat. Weave in ends.

I really want this hat! So any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

44  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need help disecting a pattern on: November 15, 2005 08:35:43 AM
I am VERY new to knitting and have a lot of trouble with patterns.  Can anyone put this pattern in simple terms for me (I'm not sure what "join" means or how the switching of needles works)  and more importantly tell me what needles this requires??  I think rounds..but not completely sure.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

45  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / asking again on: November 14, 2005 04:49:29 PM
Didn't get a response last time, so I'm asking again....


What kind of printer does everyone use, and what kind of contact paper?

I designed my first stencil and fed contact paper through my inkjet to print it, but then I couldn't cut it out because the ink never dries (just smears)

Any suggestions?Huh


Thanks!

I tried printing my stencil on to contact paper, but the ink doesn't dry.  Am I doing something wrong or missing a step?

Thanks!
47  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Kirsten Dundst Hat pattern on: November 12, 2005 01:20:08 AM
I was wondering if anyone could direct me to a pattern for a hat that Kirsten Dundst wore in the movie Elizabethtown.  It's red and kinda looks like a floppy beret worn on the back of her head.  I am a beginner so I'm looking for a simple pattern.


THANKS!!!!!

Hi everyone,
I just bought a tshirt that I want to wear for halloween.  Can anyone offer me some tutorials on ways to deconstruct it?  I really like the look where you cut off the neckline, but I always screw it up so I was looking for some guidance. Oh yeah, I'm new at this.

Thanks in advance!
