1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Aviator Hat and 2 Scarves (7 pics) on: January 22, 2008 10:44:01 AM
These are great! I especially like the hat... when I saw the first one, I wasn't sure I liked it, but the one you did on smaller needles looks awesome! It fits you just perfectly! I might try to make one of these for myself.

Great work!
When I did the one on size 7 needles I wasn't too happy either, but I couldn't bring myself to frog it! lol

I love that hat!
Thank You! Smiley

What a great first FO!  I really love your color choices for the striped scarf.  I've been looking for neon yellow yarn like that for awhile.  It just looks so bright and happy with the red/pink colorway.
Thanks, I really love the brightness of it, too! Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Aviator Hat and 2 Scarves (7 pics) on: January 19, 2008 04:51:42 AM
Hello Everyone!

I know about a million craftsters have done the aviator cap but I wanted to make it too! Smiley
I actually made this hat about 3 times because the pattern (found here: http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt07.htm) called for size 8 needles which made the hat huge, so I went down to size 7 and then finally size 4 needles. I made it with Red Heart Super Saver Worsted Yarn in Windsor Blue. This was actually my first FO on knitting needles.

Here's the one with the size 7 needles (sorry the picture is so bright):

as you can see it was a little too big one me...

For the one with size 4 needles I added an icord to each flap and two pompoms that I made myself.

And Another View:

The two scarves I did about a year ago on a knitting loom.

The first one I made using two different yarns and I added tassels to the end. I found this one especially handy during my trip to Arizona last Christmas, and since it was made on a loom it didn't take long at all to make. It's actually taller than me at about 6 ft! (I'm short though, 5'0")

On me:

And modeled by our snowman:

The second scarf was made for my sister with some fun yarn. She wanted a skinny scarf so I decided to make her one. I knitted this one on the loom as well, but as a flat panel.

Modeled by my sister:

Hope you guys enjoyed this. Comments are appreciated and thank you for looking! Smiley

Thank you so much! Now I can get on with my project!  Grin

The funny thing is I have that website under my favorites; I had even looked under the increases section but couldn't figure out which one it was!

I'm a newbie knitter so I don't have much experience. My pattern says to:

Inc 1 st (i.e., K1, then K1 into the back loop of the same st)

I don't understand what it means by knitting into the back loop of the same stitch... does it mean the stitch I just knitted or what? If so how would I do this?

Help would be greatly appreciated!

Much thanks,

This is an awesome hat! I would make one, but I just began knitting so I don't think I would be able to do it yet... but I just wanted to tell you that this looks great! Smiley

ha ha gotta love the dog outfits.  i have a baby poodle about your dog's size.  have you ever knitted a dog sweater w/o the loom? (i ask b/c i do not have a loom - just lots and lots of needles and lots and lots and lots xthousands of yarn)

I'm a lil ashamed to admit this but I don't know how to knit without the loom but I'm sure that if you can knit a tube with some holes for the legs, you'll be able to do it! Smiley

Oh how cute!  Did you use a pattern for the doggy sweater, or did you just make it up?
I didn't really use a pattern for her sweater. I basically just made a tube with holes in it for her legs.

Super Job

Lol poor puppy lol
Thank you! I took her outside last weekend and trust me she appreciated it! lol Smiley

Yes they're very warm and toasty and they're also very easy and fast to make! Smiley

I've always wanted wrist warmers and I found this great, easy pattern for making them on a loom here:

So without further ado here they are (sorry if it's a lil blurry)

I also made a sweater for my chihuahua on the loom, as well as a little hat with holes for her ears! She loves it!

and another

Feel free to tell me what y'all think! Smiley

edited to add: doggy sweater

OMG we were forced to watch her in our Humanities class, and I agree with how she would overanalyze everything!

Hilarious quote from her: "It's so big I can't take it all in!"
