1  my messenger... first prototype... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by designingermany on: December 07, 2006 02:44:23 PM
Hello everybody,
I finished this prototype today, I made this for a project at my university. We have to invent a bag ( or some kind of) to give to exchange students who come to our state. It has to be improved, of course, but the dead-line is in February, so... I think there willl be a few more of them until then...
BTW, Im studying Industrial Design - so be kind with me, Im not so familiar with sewing and fabrics  Wink



This is the inside-bag ( the whole messenger consist of 2 pieces which can be used seperately), but theres missing a big red trashy print missing, still...



Now you fix the outer part (which can be used as a pencil oder needle roll) of the bag with snap-fasterners...



...and wrap it around the inner bag ...



then you get this...



...and that



a detail shot

Comments are very appreciated!  Grin

2  Knittys "Exchequered" ... a little modified in Knitting: Completed Projects by designingermany on: November 21, 2006 02:23:37 AM
Hi everybody, finally, I made a scarf, too ... sometimes its fun to do a project thats finished very quick. I made this scarf for my boyfriends birthday and added a skull on one side, as he loves that very much. The pattern is awesome, I think! Im in love with double-knitting now... and so I decided to give a pullover to my boyfriend this christmas in matching coulours but with "Spaceinvaders" (remeber the game?)-pattern ...
hope you like it!





Thank you for looking!  Grin

3  FO: Skully baby hoodie in Knitting: Completed Projects by designingermany on: October 04, 2006 05:04:07 PM
Hi everybody, I just finished this little hoodie for a good friend of mine who will be father soon. He really loves skulls everywhere (his wife does not...) and so I decided he has to show his baby right from the start what his daddy likes...or is like...  Wink

Hope you like it, too! I used a skull chart I found on the web, sorry, I forgot the name of the designer ( if you are the one who made that up, thank you very much!!).

5  FO: Transparent cardigan -->link to free pattern! in Knitting: Completed Projects by designingermany on: August 16, 2006 08:08:59 AM
Hi everybody, I caught a cold and couldnt leave the house for a few days, so I sent my boyfriend to  the store to get some new yarn for me ( it must have been horrible for him to talk about yarn qualities with all the women in this store, as he doesnt know anything about this, but the girls were so impressed that a young man was walking in... :-))), and this is what I made of it: my new transparent cardigan! I really love it, its so soft! And its really light weight: only 125g! Sorry for being so proud of it, but normally I am very critical about the things I make - but with this, for the first time, Im completely satisfied...  Grin







heres the link to the free pattern:

6  Re: Finally, I started to crochet - the inescapable bikini ;-)) in Crochet: Completed Projects by designingermany on: August 06, 2006 02:26:58 AM
Sorry, I think I cant post the pattern here, because its from a magazine and somehow not legal to copy it, I think. But I found a free patternhere --> http://crochic.tripod.com/bikini.htm. The Bra is just the same like mine, I just skipped the border and didnt sew the straps at the lower edges (only at the top) but made a border with holes (sorry, I dont know how its called in English) at the lower edge of the bra, using *dc+ 1 ch*, so I could pull the straps through the holes. For the panties I ch about 50, and worked in sc, decreasing 2 every sec row, until I had only 10 sc left, then began dec 2 in every second until my bootie was covered. It should look like this -->


I hope you can understand, what I mean...  Huh

7  Lacey strapless "somekindof"-tube top, just in time for summer! in Knitting: Completed Projects by designingermany on: August 05, 2006 05:40:33 AM
Hi everybody, I just finished this top, I hope you like it. I made this from a pattern I found in "Sabrina" ( a Germany knitting magazine). Normally they only publish stuff not even my grandma would like to wear, I think this must have been designed by the trainee  Grin...

8  Finally, I started to crochet - the inescapable bikini ;-)) in Crochet: Completed Projects by designingermany on: August 05, 2006 05:34:00 AM
Hi everybody, this is my first post to the crochet-department  Grin, I finished this bikini just yesterday, I made it for a friend who is moving to Sweden in a few weeks. if you are wondering why I made a bikini for Sweden ( seems more obvious to make a scarf...doesnt it?), its a runnig gag - my little cousin went to Sweden once and in fact, it was very hot, they all got sunburned and a hawaiian tan... so every time it was raining after that in Germany, everybody would say "Oh, Id love to be in Greece(Spain/Italy/Turkey...) now..." - but not my cousin, he always said "Mom, cant we go back to Sweden?". So I learned about the swedish beaches. They are there! For this reason, I made this bikini. Il give it to her tonight, Im so excited! I hope shell like it as much as I do.

Hello everybody, I finished this green halter a few days ago and now - its raining all the way here and in fact, now the summer seems to be gone, I realized - I dont like green Huh. I was just in some kinda rush when I went to the shop to buy new yarn and as the colour I wanted wasnt there, I just HAD to buy another colour. Somehow I cant manage my addiction. hhhmmm.
Hope you like it, though.

10  Re: You encouraged me<3 ...pullover/free pattern! in Knitting: Completed Projects by designingermany on: July 14, 2006 08:18:25 AM
Well, now heres the translated pattern, excuse the mistakes Im not a pro in English language... so if somebody cant figure out what these hieroglyphics say ... give me a hint...

ANGORA PULLOVER

SIZE : M (L)
Originally made of Online-wolle Linie 99 Royal (70% angora, 30% lambswool, about 33mtrs/ 10g), I made mine out of Schachenmayr nomottas Rosato (60% cotton, 40% Polyamid, 50g / 85m, needle size 4-5mm), approx. 11 skeins for size M

Gauge:
16 sts/26rows = 10 x 10 cm



BACK:

CO 86 (94) sts,
Row 1:  k1*p1 k2 p1* repeat ** 21 (23) times, k1
Row 2:  k1*k1 p2 k1* repeat ** 21 (23) times, k1
Repeat R1&R2 until your work measures 5 cm.

Then work in stockinette stitch until your work measures 35 (31) cm.

Shape armholes:
BO 4 (5) sts at beg of next 2 rows, then in every 2. row:  k2, ssk, work in patt as set to last 4 sts, k2tog, k2, repeat the dec for 7 times;

Neckline:
When work measures 48 cm BO center 26sts and finish both sides seperately:
BO 1x 4sts, 1x 2sts, 4x 1sts in every 2. row; BO remaining 9 (12) sts when work measures 55cm.

FRONT:

CO 86 (94) sts,
Row 1:  k1*p1 k2 p1* repeat ** 21 (23) times, k1
Row 2:  k1*k1 p2 k1* repeat ** 21 (23) times, k1
Repeat R1&R2 until your work measures 5 cm.

Then work in stockinette stitch until your work measures 15 (15) cm.
Now split your work in the middle of the front and put one half onto a holder as you have to finish both sides seperately.

(Work the decreases for the v-neck using ssk or k2tog), so dec in every 2. row 5x 1sts , in every 4. row 13 x 1sts, in every 6. row 5 x 1sts.

At the same time dont forget the armholes!

When your work measures 35 (31) cm shape armholes:
BO 4 (5) sts at beg of next 2 rows, then in every 2. row:  k2, ssk, work in patt as set to last 4 sts, k2tog, k2, repeat the dec for 7 times.

BO the remaining 9 (12) sts when work measures 55 cm.
SLEEVES:

CO 38(44)
Row 1:  k1*p1 k2 p1* repeat ** 9 (10) times, k1 (p1 k2)
Row 2:  k1*k1 p2 k1* repeat ** 9 (10) times, k1 (k3)
Repeat R1&R2 until your work measures 5 cm.

Then work in stockinette stitch, inc 1sts in every 6. row for 11 times (= 60(66) sts).

When work measures 35(34) cm BO 4 (5) sts at beg of next 2 rows, then in every 2. row BO 1 x 2sts, 16(17)x 1sts, 2x2sts, then BO the remaining sts. ( I did the dec again using ssk & k2tog when there was only 1sts to BO).

Work the 2nd sleeve in the same way.

FINISHING:

Sew the soulder seams.
For the neck edge finishing pick up about 212 sts ( 56 around the back of the neck, 78 around the right and left side of the neck); start in the center of the front and with RS facing you join and * k2, p2 * 1row, be sure that the 2 center sts of the front are knitted, not purled!
In the 2nd row, knit together the right center st and the st before, and slip the left center st over the st after the center sts. Do that in every 2nd row for 8cm. BO all sts but k2tog the purled sts on the back of the next before you BO.

Sew sleeves into armholes then sew side and sleeve seams.
