KatAutumn...

The Sugar n Cream one will totally work.  I made one out of the Bernat equivalent to that yarn.  It's great for greasy hair days!  However, be prepared to wash and dry it with every wear, because the cotton doesn't spring back at ALL, despite the ribbing.

have you guys found that 1 skein of patons sws is enough?

this is my first time knitting with this yarn! i'm excited!

the first one i made was with SWS in Natural Pink and i made it following the pattern exactly... it used up almost the entire skein! just had a tiny little ball of scrap left. but it came out the size of a 1972 Buick!!!!! i ended up felting it to get to be small enough to fit my head. now it's just right, but won't cover my ears... and now i misplaced it (pity too, b/c it was so pretty!... my mom probably hid it somewhere)

but i would recommend using size 8s and CO 100 sts as 120 is too big!! (and i found out that for my head, 90 is too small)
and rep row 5, 9x as 15x makes it too wide.

good to know!!! i'm planning on making one out of Red Heart Casual Cot'n. it's a cotton blend but the yarn has almost no stretch. maybe i should just make it a bit tight and let it stretch out.

thanks for the tip!

i have some moda dea cache that i want to make a cal with...how should i alter the pattern?
Snappity-Snap, my 2nd cal was knit in this exact yarn (did you get it on sale at Michael's?)

My noggin is a bigg'n at 24".  This is how I made my cal (which I'm wearing right now!) from this yarn:
1.  CO 100 stitches on size 8 needles
2.  Followed pattern up to Row 5
3.  Row 5: only 7 repeats
4.  Followed rest of pattern till there were 2 stitches on either side  of markers

The size came out perfectly for me (not too wide).  A photo is posted a few pages prior to this one.  Good luck!

P.S.  I love, LOVE your knitted kitty!!   Grin

g.23, it looks great, nice and cozy. Your mom is gonna love it,  Now I wish I had learned short row knitting :-/


If a very newbie knitter like me can do it (and I have made six so far!), than ANYONE can do it!! I used curtain rings as markers since I didn't have any official knitting markers, but it worked just fine!

I have used every type of yarn and find that with a few minor adjustments, they all seem to work best for me when I cast on 88 stitches on size 7 needles....I tried using 9 with thicker yarn--ick--too big so I frogged it and did it the "normal" way--YAY--I still want to try the ribbon

Did you see moonlightbliss in the IYP thread?--she made one for a swap using only garter stitches and ties!!  I like it, also!

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and knitted my calorimetry last night!   I used Rowan Tapestry, can't remember what the color is called.  I held two strands together, and I didn't bother to match the colors together , I just held two random pieces.  I was sort of scared how it would turn out, but it actually turned out beautiful I think.  The way the striping went turned out pretty symmetrical so I'm very pleased! Oh, and I didn't knit it as wide as the pattern calls for.  I wanted it to be a little more like a headband.  Anyway, here you go..
