11  "Carry Me" crochet bag with FREE PATTERN in Crochet: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: May 17, 2009 02:22:25 PM
I made this bag so I would have something to carry my yarn in for knitting on the go. You could whip this up in an hour. I made an I-cord strap but you could make a crochet one if you dont know how Smiley.



Materials

Size F/5 3.75mm crochet hook

2 size 6 double pointed needles

1 skein Patons Silk Bamboo in "Sea"

Pattern

Chain 4, join with slip stitch to form a ring.

1. Ch1, 1 sc in the same loop, 2 sc in each of the next 3 sc, sl st in ch1 to join.

2. Ch1, 2 sc in each sc around, sl st in ch1 to join.

3. Ch1 *sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

4. Ch1 *sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

5. Ch1 *sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

6. Ch1 *sc in next 4sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

7. Ch1 *sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

8. Ch1 *sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

9. Ch1 *sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

10. Ch1 *sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

11. Ch1, sc around, sl st to ch1 to join.

Repeat row 11 20 times.

Buttonhole Row

Ch1, sc in next 14 sc, ch 10, skip next 3 sc, sc in 4th sc and all remaining sc around, sl st in ch1 to join.

Sl st next round to finish.

I-Cord Strap

Cast on 4sts using double pointed needles.

Knit, don't turn.

Slip the sts back to the beginning of the needle and k the row again.

Continue in this manner until you have a short length of knitting, pull down on the cord and the gap at the back will close.

Continue until your cord measure approximately 4 feet. If you are tall you may want to make yours longer, I dont need a long strap because I'm only 5 foot 1

Finishing

Slip the end of each side of your I-cord through the bag from the inside out about 1/2 an inch from the top of the bag and tie a knot an inch from the end of the cord.

Add a button of your choosing.

12  Striped Raglan Sweater (finished forever ago) in Knitting: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: April 15, 2009 11:24:08 AM
But I am just now getting around to posting about it.

I was inspired by a striped sweater that I saw on Brooklyn Tweeds blog. I used some cheap wool-ease yarn so its a little scratchy but all in all I like it. If there were one thing that I could change I would have used a smaller needle because When I wear a shirt underneath this sweater you can see through it.

Ok I figured out the placement and I decided to add something. I am going to get it on the inner part of my ankle and Im going to get this tattoo (see below)on the other ankle so I will have two tattoos facing each other.

This tattoo is for my cat Buttercup who I love very much. The strawberry ice cream doesn't mean anything but I made the heart purple cause thats my moms favorite color.

Im going to ask a friend of mine if he can redraw my tattoos for me cause Im not the best artist, lol.

I drew up another one that I think I like a little more.



This is the cartoon version


I am not sure with the placement. I was thinking the foot, my side, my inner arm I guess I'll figure that out later on.

Hey everyone this is my first time posting in this thread. I have posted a few times in the finished tattoos though. I have an idea for a tattoo that I've been thinking about for awhile now. I have a major sweet tooth but diabetes runs in my family so Im really not supposed to eat alot of it so I wanted to get a sweet treat tattooed on me to show my love for sweets. Tell me what you think I'd love some feedback so I can continue to get ideas on how to make it better.



Here it is with a cartoon effect. I like it like this.



I like the picture with the tootsie pop better but I think I should have drawn it smaller.

Before done by a female tattoo artist at ink n at tattooin Penn Hills PA. I hated it and one was darker than the other. You can also see them in my thumbnail pic.


Redone by a female tattoo artist at Southside Tattoo on the Southside in PA. I love it now. All the white that she mixed in with the pink has since faded away. My skin does not hold white. It still looks really good and the color shows up really well on my skin.

Using a size G crochet hook do single crochet around the entire edge that you just finished binding off. Do two more rows of single crochet. Cut the yarn and slide it through the loop and pull tightly.

Sleeves
Simply remove your stitch holder and place the live sts as evenly as possible between 3 of your double pointed needles. You will also need to pick up one sts where your armpit will be. This is done so there wont be a big hole there. I have added a photo so you can better understand what I mean.




Simply Knit around in stockinette stitch until the sleeves measure 6(6.5)(6.5)(7)(7)(7.5) inches. Bind Off.
Do three rows of single crochet just as you did for the bottom waist.

Weave in all ends

Blocking
Blocking this garment is simple. Place it in warm, slightly soapy water. Then squeeze out all of the water being careful not to distort the shape. Lay it flat, do not stretch it. The main area that will need to be blocked is the lace neckline. Once you have it laid neatly, place a warm iron on it for just a second and continue to do that for the entire cowl neck area.

20  Finished Lace Panel Raglan in Knitting: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: October 18, 2007 05:22:36 AM




I just finished this sweater the other day. I used wool ease yarn and I think that yarn works well for this sweater. I knit it using size 7 circular needles and size 7 dpn for the arms and neck. It fits perfectly. I am working on a tutorial for this sweater so you can make your own if you want Smiley. You can see more pics on my blog, I will post action shots when I post the tutorial which I hope to finish over the weekend.

Heres the tutorial, sorry so long.



This is not a step by step pattern but a basic tutorial. You can easily modify my instructions and make the sweater look however you desire. Be sure to study all directions before beginning.


Materials
I used 5 skeins of lionbrands woolease and made the size small


1 size 7, 29 inch circular needle


1 size 7, 16 inch circular needle


10 stitch markers(they don't need to all be the same)

Sizes
small(medium)(large)(x-large)(xx-large)

Step one- Cast on 98 stitches on smaller circular needle and place a marker, join being careful not to twist your stitches.

Step two- Work 1 inch of k1 p1 ribbing



Step three- k 16, YO, place marker, k1, place marker, YO (raglan increase), k 16, YO, place marker, k1, place marker, YO, place marker, work row 1 of lace panel, place marker, YO,place marker, k1, place marker, YO, k16, YO, place marker, k1, place marker, YO, k 15

Row 4 and all even rows will be knit.

From here on you will work all raglan increases as follows: YO, slip marker, k1, slip marker, YO. You will continue working rows 1-12 of the lace pattern inside the lace panel. When your work measures approximately 6.5 (7.5)(8.5)(9.5)(10.5) inches.

When work gets to big to fit on your needle switch to the larger circular needle.

End with and odd row.

This next row you will be seperating the sleeves from the body. Knit until you reach the first stitch marker, remove the marker and place all of the stitches between here and the next marker on a stitch holder(this is your first sleeve). Continue to knit until you reace the next armhole increase, remove the markers and place all the stitches between here and the next markers on a stitch holder(this is your second sleeve)knit to the end.

Now all the stitches you have on your circular needle will be used to knit the remainder of the body.The body has no shaping, you will simply work all stitches in stockinette stitch EXCEPT the lace panel stitches. For the lace panel stitches you will continue to work in lace pattern.

When body reaches approximately 16(17)(18)(19)(20) inches from top you will begin to work in k1 p1 ribbing for 1.5 inches and then bind off loosely.

The sleeves will be worked on a smaller circular needle and will be worked completely in stockinette stitch until they reach 24(25)(26)(27)(28) inches in length. Work 1.5 inches in k1 p1 ribbing. Bind off loosely.

This sweater is meant to fit loosely.
