4  My Loopy Sweater! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Lara on: January 11, 2005 11:04:31 AM
This is the first sweater i have ever designed, i usually write patterns for baby clothes, but it turned out better than i had expected. I'm not sure why i chose to make the loopy collar, but the idea came to me in the middle of the night, and i decided to try it out. Your input is appreciated.

this is one of me wearing it, stupid idea to try to photograph myself Smiley

an upclose of the collar, although the actual colors of the yarn are much nicer in reality, they're shades of chocolate brown, camel, navy, and blue

i made a similar shrug a while ago, i made the pattern up as i went along, but it was something like this:

i first knit this shape starting at D, i just made it in single crochet stitch

then i joined A to B and C to D, this forms the armholes, then i started crocheting in the round with shell stitch, this forms the collar and the part below the back, so it becomes something like this:

once i finished this part, i crocheted the arms in the round also in shell stitch.

i really hope this helps, i'm not sure whether it's clear or not!!!

6  Tutorial: super simple felt cell phone cozy! NOW with tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Lara on: December 27, 2004 12:03:14 AM
many of my totes don't have a pocket for a cell phone, so i came up with this idea for a cozy, you can hang the handle of the cozy on the handles of the tote which makes it easier to find the phone when it rings! i made this in just half an hour, and i will be posting a tutorial...

the fabric in the tutorial isn't felt, it's denim because i didn't have any felt left, i have also made these from foam and leatherette

1. This is the template for the 2 pieces:

2. cut your fabric according to the template, i used zigzag shears so the fabric won't fray and this way i didn't have to hem the edges.

3. embelish the front according to your taste Smiley you can use beads, felt, sublime stitching, applique... here a few examples:

4. place  the front and back pieces on top of eachother wrong sides facing:

5. attach from 3 sides leaving the top open, i used hand stitching but it would've been neater and faster with a machine

6. attach a snap on the top of the handle from the right side of the fabric, and the other part of the snap to the top right corner of the body of the cozy, i used a snap in the green cosy, and velcro on this one, the button is only decoraive, of course you can use a button or a ribbon as well

7. this is the finished cozy attached to a tote i made

7  my last knitted scarf this winte- NOW with hat!!!!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Lara on: December 26, 2004 11:58:09 PM
since the beginning of the season i have been knitting and crocheting scarves like crazy, mostly as gifts, but i couldn't part with this one once it was finished...

it looks a different shade in the photos, but it's actually a very light pink with pink, blue and yellow spots on it.

the edging is crochet

i had some yarn left so i HAD to make a hat, i have to say these are the first matching hat and scarf i have ever owned Smiley and the first hat i have ever knitted!

8  so i finally gave in to the poncho craze!!!!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Lara on: December 26, 2004 11:54:33 PM
i fell in love with the color of the yarn (it's a bit brighter than in the photos) and i don't know why i decided to make a poncho! this is my first huge knitting project, feel free to tell me what you think...

the line down the middle isn't knit wrong it's just a bit twisted in the photo cause i didn't bother to check in the mirror!

I loved your simple ribbon "wrapping" so much that I "packaged" all of my handmade gifts this way for Christmas.  Yay!  Thanks for the idea!  BTW...your scarf is adorable!

thank you angelwing,
that's really sweet of you, i really like the way you wrapped your gifts as well, i'd love to see what they are, please post pictures.
