1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Felted Paper Crane Pattern Help! on: October 01, 2008 07:04:57 PM
But it says row 6-11 I need to repeat 4 and 5, which has the casting on!

Or is it just row 6 and 11? Then it would be

6 - CO
7 - BO
8 - BO
9 - ?
10 - ?
11 - CO
12 - BO


6 - CO
7 - CO/BO
8 - CO/BO
9 - CO/BO
10 - CO/BO
11 - CO/BO
12 - BO

Maybe I'm thinking too much into this, but I really want to make this pattern for my Christmas present this year! And with 20 people to knit for I need to figure it out soon.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Felted Paper Crane Pattern Help! on: October 01, 2008 06:33:12 PM
I'm not too sure where else to turn to, so I'll ask here. I just picked up  Knitalong and I've fallen in love with a pattern for a felted paper crane. There's just one problem.

I cannot, for the life of me, figure this pattern out.

Everything goes fine and dandy till I get to this point:

Row 4: CO 2 stitches, knit till end. (18 sts)

Row 5: CO 2 stitches, purl till end. (20 sts)

6-11: Repeat rows 4-5. (32 sts)

Easy so far. Then this happens!

Row 7: BO 2 stitches, work to end. (30 sts)

8-12: Repeat Row 7 (20 sts)

So...what the hell do I do? It sounds like for rows 7-11 I CO and BO 2 each time, but that really doesn't seem to make any sense. The numbers wouldn't be decreasing, and I'd just be binding off something I just casted on. And it's not just a sloppy way of saying "For rows 8 AND 12" because then there's nothing for 9 and 10!

It's getting to the point where I'm going to re-write the pattern from scratch.

Anyone have any ideas what to do?  Huh
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HP Knits: Craftster Style! on: May 11, 2007 09:34:32 AM
If you're like me (a hopeless, knitting-addicted nerd) then you've already picked up your copy of Charmed Knits. But let's face it, there's a lot more patterns out there then in the book. Like all of the cool hand-knitted items that have popped up in the movies. So I want people to help me find interesting HP patterns that we can post in this topic. I know there's a few of them on this board!

Like the Ginny hat!


Or the Animal Cracker hat!


With a few color changes this can become Dumbledore!


Add a link and I'll edit my post to include them.

This is perfect!

I've put a bid on it, so let's hope I get it!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / My Brother is WEIRD (Aka: Help me find a Pattern!) on: March 09, 2007 01:13:44 PM
Last Christmas I fell a little short of cash and my dear brother picked up my half of two gift cards for my cousins. I was going to pay him back but instead he asked for a new plushie instead (I've made him two monster plushies so far). The problem is that I can't find a pattern ANYWHERE for what he wants.

He wants a knitted plushie Chicken.

That's right. A chicken.

See, he's a HUGE fan of Good Eats and he wants his own kitchen-chicken like Alton Brown has.

So does anyone out there no where I can find or buy a chicken pattern? Or maybe a bird close to it that I can alter?

YES! Thank you!

Just because I'm curious, does anyone else have any easy stuffed animal patterns? I'm teaching a felting class for my "Disgruntal Monsters" and I could always use some fresh ideas.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Teddy Bear Pattern Search! on: October 23, 2006 07:00:56 AM
Hello there!

I need help finding a pattern I know I saw here! It was a teddy bear that was designed to have as little seeming as possible. Just a whole bunch of increases/decreases/maybe short-rowing to make the shape. All I remember is:

1) The pattern was on a blog

2) The person linked to the pattern made a teddy bear

Any help? I need it for my felting class!

As soon as I'm done with my Christmas knitting (around March, knowing me) I'm going to knit myself a teratoma!

Did anyone else have problems from the book Knitorama? I tried making their garter for a wedding present and I couldn't make heads or tails of it!

And that's a cute apple!  Cheesy

This is perfect!

I clean my family's bathroom and kitchen, and the chemicals always make me sick. I've been toying with a knitted mask for ages, but this one looks a LOT better than my crappy rectangles.
