what size kneedles did you use?  i am just about to begin, and the pattern didnt mention that! i am guessing 9 US.  is that true?

i plan to make about three of these for various christmas pressies!



Actually Sister was not sure what size she had used... But I guess US 8-9 needles will be fine!

Beautiful job and thank you for the pattern!  I plan to make it for my mother-in-law for Christmas, but I'm thinking about picking up and adding ribbing along the long edges as well.
That'll make much neater edge.
Maybe I'll try that too when I make mine Smiley

I'd do st st, but last time I did that, it rolled like crazy.  I imagine it wouldn't make much difference when it's only a single stitch, though.

Thanks for the clarification!

I decided g st will be better after all, and updated the pattern.
Thanks for pointing it out Smiley

Great neckwarmer!  I have one question: is there a row of garter stitch on the edges?  The cable is 16 stitches wide. At 3 repeats, that's 48 stitches, but the cast on is 50.

I meant st st, but you can work the edges either in garter st or in st st, whatever way you prefer Smiley

My sister made this neck warmer from the cable chart I made out of this Chloe hooded cardi.
http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/24179

She is an art student in New York and she whipped this up out of necessity, from Rowanspun Aran left over from her previous project and some recycled buttons from an old coat - hence the name in the pattern Tongue

By the way, the cables seem to be have been worked every 6th rows in the original cardi, not 4th rows as I put it.

I myself plan to make a hoodie out of this chart Smiley

We also decided to try publishing the pattern in PDF format - you can download it here Tongue

The file's quite big for its content... we tried to size it down, but for some reason we couldn't.

Anyway, it's my first attempt at writing a pattern and I'm excited!

Edited: You can queue it on Ravelry!

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Ene's Scarf on: October 18, 2007 07:59:20 PM




Knitting this was so fun that I finished it in less than a week!
The yarn is Rowanspun 4 ply in colorway Reed - the yarn screamed to be Ene other than any other lace shawl pattern I had on my mind.
I like the finished product so much and have been wearing it to work everyday since I finished it Grin

By the way, I finally got an invitation to Ravelry a few days ago! I've been hanging around there ever since, and I'm constantly surprised at what it offers!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Provincial Waistcoat on: October 08, 2007 12:01:31 AM


I finished Provincial Waistcoat from IK winter 2006!
The yarn is chunky acrylic/wool blend from Korean yarn market.
I actually tend to think the design looks better in this yarn than in the one used in the book, doesn't it?  Grin

I'm satisfied with the overall fit, but in fact I got the "Cross 2" pattern all wrong. The pattern direction was confusing, and I guess "knit same st" should be "knit same st in the back" instead? It's actually the same pattern with the one used in "my so-called scarf" but they put it the opposite way Sad I didn't find out exactly what I was doing wrong until I got past the armholes, and I chose to continue in the wrong pattern.



Close-up of buttons. Oh, how I love them! Picking the right buttons has never been an easy task for me, and I'm quite proud of myself for picking these out.

My final swatch! I'm so happy with it!

Thanks, superstitch and D.I.Winer!
What you two have said is pretty much what I've thought myself, and I came up with second swatch, which I like much much better. Doing two repeats really helped me get an idea of how the pattern would look on the sweater!

My major problem was that the color choice was very limited for this yarn - about ten colors in all. Given that, I'm pretty satisfied with what I've managed Smiley

I'm thinking of replacing the grey with the beige, and vice versa, to make the brown part of the repeat pop out more. One more swatch, and I'm off to get more yarn!

Here's my first swatch for the sweater. I'm not sure if I like it or not, so I bought a couple more colors to knit some more swatches. What do you think?
