1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Modified Who? Hat on: January 07, 2010 05:18:05 PM
gorgeous! the colour is beautiful, your version looks even nicer than the others. how did you modify it, did you make the cables longer?

Thanks! Sorry for the late response!
Basically, after the ribbing, I added on half the amount that was cast on (K2, M1, repeat); so from the original 112 stitches, you get 168. The original repeating owl pattern is 11 stitches (8 for the owl, and 3 purled to separate from next owl); I switched that to 14 stitches (8 for owl, and 6 purled) because I didn't want too many owls. Then, after the owls, I just continued K8, P6 until the hat measured about 6.5 inches. Decreased by K2tog, then K a round, and repeated that until eventually I just kept decreasing to the end.

I kind of wished now that I had purled after the owls to show them off more, then work actual cables afterward, but whatevs! :>

Exactly what the title says.
(recently posted by goodtimegirl: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=332489.0)

Needed a hat... so I made one.





Wayyyy too lazy to even out the stitches at the center of the hat right now. :>

Yes! Those mistakes were definately (valuable) learning experiences!
I used regular embroidery thread....I think. It's just doubled?
(The thread's pretty cool because it changes shades of color like from pink to dark red, but I chose using just the red part.)

Reconstructed from Estee Lauder's latest free gift tote, which looks like:



Made into this using my mom's fabric leftovers and every part of the old tote bag excluding the rope things. (The canvas stripey thing was used as interfacing!)




Accidentally burnt the side while ironing...


Back: (majorly screwed up on...oh well)

Lots of mistakes but oh well, I'm happy.
Comments, criticisms all appreciated much.

OH MAN! THAT IS AWESOME. --> POCKETS! Smiley


I had originally wanted pockets in my dress, too! (refers to purple dress posted days ago) Instead, I had to go out and buy a clutch. D:

Shocked

woah! that was awesome! very inspirational, how long did it take?


I'd say a day of work over the course of 4 days. (My mom is busy as well when I have school.) The bodice took my mom the longest simply because the pleating was hard.

Mom made this dress many years ago (this is why it's not under reconstruction?)
[edit] SHOOT! Credit to where it's due -- my mom made the new dress for me, too! I had accidentally closed the window on my first post so I got lazy when I redid this post. Sorry!

Thanks for viewing! Comments are cool.


[edit] Just got home from prom 2 hours ago. MAN, IT WAS AWESOME DANCING IN THIS DRESS! I'M DEFINATELY GOING TO MAKE MY OWN DRESS FOR SENIOR BALL (I'M LEARNING HOW TO SEW THIS SUMMER). I think I'm gonna make a dress just labout 6in. longer --- close to make ankles. I ... don't know how I'd do in a gown. D:

Fabric R Us still exists at the corner of Berryessa Rd. and Lundy Ave. They have expanded their fabric inventory so that they have two stores in the same little plaza now! You can tell that they are open if:
1) their doors are open, and
2) they have rolls of fabric outside to buy as well.
My mom goes there for all of her fabric needs. We used to go to Hancock's by Mckee's until it closed down. I don't know what the variety and quality of their fabrics are. I'm sorry I can't be of any more help and that I couldn't get this reply back to you sooner.
