761  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help with Knifty Knitter Scarf on: September 18, 2006 09:14:32 AM
If you make it as a tube and just want to close the tube, you could also end it the same way as making a hat - cut a nice amount of tail of the working yarn, put it into a needle and weave it up through each peg and pull the yarn off, and just pull it tight at the end.

Otherwise, Isela from Decor Accents has a pretty good technique I've used with a bunch of my scarves:

"> Sure thing: Assume I have a panel on 5 pegs. Working yarn is by peg 1.
>
> Step 1: Knit the first two stitches. (Peg 1 & 2)
> Step 2: Move the loop from the 2nd peg over to the 1st peg. Knit over.
> Step 3: Move the loop from the 1st peg onto the empty 2nd peg.
> Step 4: Knit the next stitch (stitch on peg 3).
> Step 5: Move the stitch from peg 3 over to peg 2. Knit over.
> Step 6: Move the stitch from peg 2 to empty peg 3.
> Step 7: Knit the next stitch (stitch on peg 4)
> Step 8: Move the stitch from peg 4 over to peg 3. Knit over.
> Step 9: Move the stitch from peg 3 over to empty peg 4.
> Step 10: Knit the next stitch (stitch on peg 5)
> Step 11: Move the stitch from peg 5 over to peg 4. Knit over.
> Step 12: Cut working yarn, leaving a 5-6" tail.
> Step 13: Wrap the tail around the peg. Knit over. Pull tail through the stitch and secure tightly."

Its from an email from one of the many looming Yahoo groups. Private message me and I can give you some addresses if you're interested.

Nancy,

What size are you looking for? And what loom would you be doing it on? I have a few patterns for smaller pouch style purses, and I can point you to others that would have larger bags/different bags.

Speaking of the Knifty Knitters, has anyone here got the new longer ones? Any projects started yet? I'm thinking shawl/wrap for my first one on them.

I've had friends who made the pumpkins. Essentially, you are making a 2 strand (or 3 depending on your yarn) hat. When you go to close off the "hat" at the bottom, bring the yarn through all your loops like normal, but instead of closing it up on the outside, bring your yarn into the "hat". Then you use the same strand of yarn to pull and close it on the other side, giving it the shape of a pumpkin. *Make sure you stuff it before that step :-)

Essentially, the size is up to you as you can make hundreds of different sized and shaped pumpkins if you like. That's why she doesn't give a number of rows (though I wish she did for the models  Wink .

All of Clella's patterns for the regular KKs are done in a basic figure 8 wrap (aka e-wrap), but you could also use a flat stitch (see Isela's decor accent videos at the link above if you need help with that).

The instructions for the leafs/stems are pretty decent, you can follow those directly. The faces are just glued on, or sewed on if you're handy that way. 

Hopefully this makes sense. There's an awesome Yahoo group called kniftyknitters that can help you as well, if you're inclined to learn more.
