391  disk one of heroes hat (cabled and bulky) in Knitting: Completed Projects by loudxmouse on: December 15, 2008 03:39:34 PM
during my 1st ever episodes of heroes, which my friend molly forced on me, I whipped up this cabled hat.

Needles: 13 16" circs, DPNs or circ big enough to magic loop
yarn: 6WPI, super bulky. I used vintage yarn from my grandma's stash, so I have no idea what this was besides wool and very bulky.


Directions:
-CO 40 st onto size 13 needles
-k1p1 for three rows
-at the beginning of next row K2  and purl 4st and knit the rest of the row.
you will be cabling over these 4 sts with cable needle hanging inside work. Basically you are knitting reverse stockinette and cabling on the inside of your work. I worked four rows and then did the cable twist.
-rep  the cable 4-5 times
-k8 ssk2tog
-k7 ssk2tog
-repeat in this pattern until you are knitting 2tog and keep cabling as long as you can until the cable-stitches are encroached on.
-draw yarn through live stitches or kitchener shut.
-weave in ends, block and all that jazz!

took an old prom dress, an ugly dress and lots of ribbons and this is what i got!
I sewed loops into the back of the dress where the zipper was and laced it up (since it didn't zip up over my ribs anymore) with a velvet ribbon. The over dress was an ugly dress that overdyed, added a clasp and cinched up all bustley-like. i chopped the sleeves and added lace and bows. TADA


hair and makeup. the hair took me a TON of time as my hair color and length are usually like thishttp://farm4.static.flickr.com/3181/3028445419_f8d3292247.jpg
