Yarn: Karaoke, color #278, Mermaid Mix
Made for my roommate, because she has long curly hair, and she looks like a mermaid. I started off with the pattern they have on the website, same number of stitches and general thumb placement, but I like real cables more than fake cables.



Simple garter stitch scarf with thick and thin yarn. I forget what yarn it is, and I can't find the paper thing. Here's a close up so you can see just how much the thick and thin parts pooled:



Just what I have finished lately. I have a bunch of stuff in the works, I just can't seem to finish them!

Nice stuff. Is that yarn similar to Manos, the yarn you used for the gloves?

It has a similar look to the ply, but it's 50% wool and 50% soy silk, so it feels quite a bit different.

Those gloves are gorgeous!! I have been searching craftster for some classy fingerless gloves, but where is the pattern??

Please, oh, please tell me where to find it (fingers crossed that it's free).

I'm in the midst of making some similar cabled armwarmers! I hope they turn out as nice as yours do, I'm scared about the thumb part. I've adapted Stich and Bitch Nation's armwarmer pattern to just have a simple cable up the sleeve.

How'd you do your thumb??

The colors are very nice too!

I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.

Cables make everything prettier.

They are beautiful, too!!  Please tell me where I can find the pattern.
They are some of the prettiest I've seen so far.

Thanks!

Thank you! I got a pattern free when I bought the yarn, but I didn't like it that much (they used fake cables instead of real cables) so I altered it. There's still pretty much the same amount of rows and placement of thumbhole, but real cables. I could try and re-write it here. I used size 7  DPNs, and it ended up WAY big for my hands, but just right for my roommate. I'd say if you have smallish-medium hands, use 6 or even 5

CO 40
Row 1: *p2 k6 repeat from * 4 more times
Row2-5: repeat row 1
Row6: *p2 c6f repeat from * 4 more times
repeat rows 1-6 two more times
repeat rows 1, 2, & 3
K16, p2, k6, p2, K14 (continuing center cable all the way up the glove)
continue like this (cabling when needed) for 7 more rows
you should be on a cable row, k to 7 before cable, pm, m1, m1, pm, k7, p2, c6f, p2, k14
increase every other row, before and after the markers until 12 stitches are between them.
go one round w/out increasing
BO all stitches in between markers, continue the pattern as-is.
return to the original cable pattern = (p2 k6 all the way around) for 5 rounds
cable round
rows 1,2,&3
BO
for the other hand, just put the thumbhole 7 stitches after the center cable.

Does this make sense? I started to try and write it like a normal pattern, but I'm far too lazy for that. if it doesn't make sense, let me know what I can clear up for you.

Thank you so much! I haven't ventured into cables yet, but I will certainly give it a try. I don't even know what fake cables are.

Thanks again, can't wait to get started.
