Thanks for the replies!

The twiggy tweed bag isn't actually made out of the "tweed" yarn the pattern called for. It just looks similar.

The case shield was a last minute idea. The members in my orchestra love it.


The spiral was so unintended in the scarf. I actually was trying to make it look like a scarf in Lion Brand Yarn's "Just Scarves" book. The unique part was supposed to be the rounded ends, but the spiral-ness proved to be more noticeable and cool.

The market bag was supposed to be a purse, but it turned out so floppy. It holds a ton of stuff.

Thanks again I really appreciate the feedback.

Dang, no one has made a dodgy looking fetching as yet. I do like the colour that you've choosen. It's a very merry yellow. I like the fair isle starburst for your mobile cover. Cute. Do you have a (preferably) free pattern? I'd use it for a camera cosy.

You do very nice work. I'm really interested in how you made the market bag. I think it's so cool.

The market bag was made by two different kinds of knitting machines. The only thing hand-knit was the handle.

Each "square" of color was actually a short tube of knitted material pressed at the ends to create a little disk. A 1970s circular knitting machine made the little puff things. They were all sewed together.

The straight knitting machine  (newer) made black side and bottom pannels.


The little pouch is really just the star pattern made twice, along with a little flap. I got the stitch pattern out of a book called "Donna Kooler's Encyclopedia of Knitting."

I couldn't find a chart that matched the star pattern I used. I didn't think scanning a copyright book was a good idea...
So I created a pattern for the little pouch--the only thing used from that book is the stitch pattern.

Here's my attempt at constructing a pattern
two colors A and B
A= background B=star color

US 7 or US 8 needles for worsted weight yarn

CO 25

row one Knit: AA BBBB AA B AAA B AAA B AA BBBB AA
row two Purl: AAA BB AA B AAA B A B AAA B AA BB AAA
row three Knit: B AAAAA B AAA B A B A B AAA B AAAAA B
row four Purl: BB AAA B AAA B A BBB A B AAA B AAA BB
row five Knit: BB AA B AAA B A B A B A B A B AAA B AA BB
row six Purl: B AA B AAA B AAA B A B AAA B AAA B AA B
row seven Knit: AA B AAA B A B AAA B AAA B A B AAA B AA
row eight Purl: A B AAA B AA BB AAAAA BB AA B AAA B A
row nine Knit: B AAA B AAA BBB AAA BBB AAA B AAA B
row ten Purl: AAA B AAAA BBBB A BBBB AAAA B AAA
row eleven Knit: B A B A BBBB A BBB A BBB A BBBB A B A B
row twelve Purl: A B AAA BBBB A BB A BB A BBBB AAA B A
row thirteen Knit: B A B AAA BBBB A B A B A BBBB AAA B A B
row fourteen Purl: A B A B AAA BBBB A B A BBBB AAA B A B A
row fifteen Knit: B A B A B AAAAAA BBB AAAAAA B A B A B
row sixteen Purl: A B A B AAA BBBB A B A BBBB AAA B A B A
row seventeen Knit: B A B AAA BBBB A B A B A BBBB AAA B A B
row eighteen Purl: A B AAA BBBB A BB A BB A BBBB AAA B A
row nineteen Knit: B A B A BBBB A BBB A BBB A BBBB A B A B
row twenty Purl: AAA B AAAA BBBB A BBBB AAAA B AAA
row twenty-one Knit: B AAA B AAA BBB AAA BBB AAA B AAA B
row twenty-two Purl: A B AAA B AA BB AAAAA BB AA B AAA B A
row twenty-three Knit: AA B AAA B A B AAA B AAA B A B AAA B AA
row twenty-four Purl: B AA B AAA B AAA B A B AAA B AAA B AA B
row twenty-five Knit: BB AA B AAA B A B A B A B A B AAA B AA BB
row twenty-six Purl: BB AAA B AAA B A BBB A B AAA B AAA BB
row twenty-seven Knit: B AAAAA B AAA B A B A B AAA B AAAAA B
row twenty-eight Purl: AAA BB AA B AAA B A B AAA B AA BB AAA

repeat these twenty-eight rows once more
 --the following rows are all done in A--
2 rows in stockinette stitch

row -k2tog -knit to last three slip 1, k1, psso, k1

purl row

repeat the last two rows until you have 7 st

BO

fold knitted material in half and sew it so it looks like a pouch. one star should show on the front and the other should show on the back. The top part of the flap (where it meets the star) should match up with the edge of the folded pouch. sew the pouch edges.

add a button and a loop if desired.


it's not the greatest pattern- I hope it made some sense. I'm more of a visual person when it comes to knitting patterns. I'm sorry if there are any errors-- it took me a long time to type out the pattern on my slow computer.
basically if all of the letters in each row add up to 25 and the letters in the sequences can be written backwards and be the same thing, then there are no errors.

If you know what the pattern is supposed to be looking like, that will help to determine if the pattern is working fine.

I hope this helps.
