23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / we call them pirates hat on: May 05, 2008 02:12:49 PM
i know this pattern has been around forever and loads of people have done it but I made this hat as a present for my brother i havent got round to sending it to him yet tho. i wanted to make him something good, it was first proper time using DPN's. i used knitpicks swish yarn. it turned out a bit big i think, but i couldn't shrink it using the dryer because its superwash wool! lol! i used that tho so it would be easy for my brother to take care of it.

the pattern is here:




It was my first time doing any kind of 'stranded' knitting. when i'd finished it i took the bottom part of the pattern out to make it a better size. It has the pink details cos my bro's nickname is 'Pinky'   Grin

25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / we call them pirates hat help please? on: March 23, 2008 03:22:35 PM
Ok, so i am sure everyone's seen this pattern before and i know lots of people have made it, so i was wondering if u could help me with a bit of the pattern? so i have knitted all of the hat and am on the lining, and i just read this bit:

'Knit straight in stockinette stitch until lining measures 2.25". Cut yarn and join main colour. Knit one more round in main colour, then cut yarn, leaving a 2 yard tail. Do not bind off. Fold hem up and steam flat with an iron or steamer for sharp fold. With a sharp needle tack each stitch down to the inside of the hat..'

Ok so the bit that confuses me is the 'DO NOT BIND OFF' and then it says 'TACK EACH STITCH DOWN' so i was wondering if it means for me to tack each stitch down one at a time off the needle instead of binding off and then sewing? Also why could i just bind it off then stitch it? does it make for a neater flatter hat?

pattern can be found here..


thanks in advance.
26  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pinkypuss and Shroom! on: March 22, 2008 04:43:51 PM
These are 2 more items i made as gifts for people (i made them in november last year, its just taken me aaaaaaaages to post pics), the shroom was a thanku to a friend who helped us move and the Pinkypuss was an christmas gift for my bro who gets called 'Pinky'.. n he has Ginger hair so thats why i gave the 'Pinkypuss' Orange yarn for hair too! lol!

Thanks for looking.

The pattern for the octopus is on here somewhere:


i think i followed it.. but its dead simple its just 1 ball shape with 8 small ball shapes sewn on for the legs.. that one is cuter than mine, but i think my Pinkypuss has alot of personality! lol!

27  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Fat Penguin and Giraffe on: March 20, 2008 01:31:21 PM
Here are 2 things i made as Christmas gifts for friends.. the first one is the Penguin from the lionbrand website.. i've seen him on here before  but i thought i'd post him anyway..

Penguin pattern: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/70583AD.html

The second is a Giraffe i made for my friend who is Giraffe mad! I kind of made up the pattern for him as i went along.. and then stuck felt on for his markings, and his horns are also rolled up felt. My friend loved him! So that made me happy! i know he's not quite perfect but he's still a cutie! Shame u cant see his hair too well in this pic! but u can see it a bit!

Comments welcome!

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Squatty Sidekick and Skull illusion Scarf on: February 28, 2008 10:06:08 AM
I made these as christmas gifts for a friend of mine who LOVES orange and black! I think they are some of the most simple things to make, but i think they turned out ok. And the recipient liked them.

this scarf was my first attempt at illusion knitting..

And this bag was my 2nd attempt at felting, i made another one of these in a tealish colour for a friend for christmas too!

I made this as a gift for my mother in law for Christmas.. It was done on size 11 needles. It was really quick to make, and its cuddly and warm! I used 2 skiens of Moda Dea Tweedle Dee in the Thunder colour i think.

Pattern is this one..


Comments welcome!

30  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lace Border Baby Blanket on: February 27, 2008 10:31:50 PM
This is the first time i've posted a picture of anything i've made I hope it all works! This is a baby blanket i made for my friends cousin. It was crocheted with a H hook and Knitpicks Swish in the Aloe colour. i think i used about 9 balls of it.

The pictures are before blocking and weaving in the ends but i think i am still happy with it. I haven't been crocheting that long, and this is the first larger item i've made.

The Pattern is from:
