11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / make your own tapestry yarn needle on: July 22, 2006 08:41:20 PM
This is a pretty simple idea however someone may find it useful:

If you have any extra bamboo/wooden needles which you have made out of chopsticks (or a lone needle), take a small drill and drill a hole through the middle.  Thread your scrap yarn through the hole and now use as an extra large tapestry needle.  This is especially useful, if you are like me and have lost those special tapestry needles to thread scrap yarn onto a project to try on.

this is just another suggestion:  if you are interested in yarn, as in the construction of yarn you could always look into material science (physics and chemistry).  the acrylics and some of the newer yarns made out of soy and corn are created from polymers.  here is a quick link:


I will be continueing my studies in plant science and was thinking of investigating some aspect of  plant fibers.  good luck!

hi, thanks for responding melmelon.  The part I really don't understand is the "continue in established pattern part".  When do I stop doing the wraps/short rows and then just knitting across all stitches?  I wrapped up to 9 stitches on both sides of the middle marker and left one stitch on each side of marker "unwrapped".  But it began looking strange.  Do you know when to stop doing the short rows?  I understand the second part about repeating the pattern but until I know when to stop short rowing I can't do that part.  

I did look at her bra pattern that she said was essentially the same pouch but I found those directions vague also and wasn't sure if that pattern was 100% a derivative of the men's thong pattern.

I am trying to knit this thong and having a lot of trouble with the "pouch" part of the instructions (Beg short rows as follows section).  It's a little vague, especially the "continue in established pattern"  for how long?  Don't quite understand those directions-- arrgh!  Also, the "repeat from * 16 times".  I'm not sure if I need to redo all of the wrap (short rows over in addition of increasing every fourth row).  I have looked all over the internet and found one other person having difficulty with this pattern. 

If anyone has already knitted this or someone can understand the directions better than me, please help me out (as in line by line directions).
