1  Re: my first knit pattern: a skirt in Knitting: Completed Projects by emsya on: October 06, 2007 10:40:35 PM

I hope this picture helps to better undestand the 4-panels construction. I am a kind of lazy person, so I choosen a crochet edge (which has a decorative effect too) instead sewing the sides of panels. I picked up sts from top side of panels and after couple forth and back rows withs some decreases I changed the the yarn and the needle size (smaller size for more decreases and a firm fabric). The top edging is folded (over a yo and k2tog row for a picot look) and this was the only time when I did some sewing to prevent sagging. I inserted a zipper too.

I used a very soft blend of 15% mohair and 85% acrylic. The yarn is self striping. This 4 panels construction makes angled stripes and prevents the horizontal stripes (which, in my opinion, makes me faaaaatter).

2  my first knit pattern: a skirt in Knitting: Completed Projects by emsya on: October 06, 2007 08:23:28 AM

This is my first knit pattern. I used to knit patterns from knitty.com or berroco's site till today. The skirt is made from 4 panels. Then I picked sts from top side of each panel and continued to knit back and forth. The balloon shape is given by the increases at lower side and decreases toward waist. I decorated the skirt with a crochet edge.

3  Re: skirt pattern deeply needed-at the end: my first pattern in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by emsya on: October 06, 2007 06:36:18 AM

At the end, this is my first pattern. I didn't knit it in the round. I played with isosceles trapezes which gives a balloon shape. The skirt is formed from 4 panels. One panel consists of 2 trapezes. I embelished the skirt with a crochet edge.

4  skirt pattern deeply needed FINALLY I MADE MY FIRST PATTERN in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by emsya on: September 25, 2007 05:36:16 AM

Today I found in my LYS this gorgeous discounted yarn and bought 7 balls (each ball is 50 gr and 88 yds; 85%acrylic, 15%mohair). I need a skirt but couldn't find a pattern to appeal to me. I would really appreciate if you could recommend a nice FREE skirt pattern. Hope I don't ask too much ...  Wink

5  Latoya summer tank from berroco (FREE pattern link) in Knitting: Completed Projects by emsya on: July 11, 2007 11:18:56 PM

It was a fast and easy knit. The tank is very stretchable. I knit the smallest size and I used YarnArt merino stretch yarn.
The link for this FREE pattern is here.

I finished Latoya summer tank last night. The picture is not good (is was already dark outside and "the photographer" was stubborn enough not to use his spectacles...). I will post another pic soon. Anyway, it was a easy and fast knit. I knit the smallest size, but it's still not very fitted, I think because of the yarn which is so stretchable (YarnArt merino stretch). I can't say I am 100% pleased with this project... Undecided It just didn't click to me.

This is WIP for latoya tank. I was lucky enough to find same blue color yarn but still it's a substitute: I used YarnArt merino stretch. It really looks and feels like a cotton yarn.

9  FO: knitty's coachella in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by emsya on: July 03, 2007 07:41:27 AM
   
S-size, no bust shaping. It took for me 2 days to knit it.
I used 150 gr (1,5 skeins) of Anchor Truva (20%wool, 80%poliacrylic). It's a Turkish yarn. I love the color.

10  Coachella spotted in Istanbul in Knitalongs by emsya on: July 03, 2007 07:39:08 AM
   
It took 2 days for me to knit it. The drape hangs too low in the middle; that's why I am wearing it over a white tank. I knit the S-size without the bust shaping. I used 150 gr (1,5 skeins) of Anchor Truva (20% wool, 80% polyacrylic) (Turkish yarn)
