I really like the colorwork you did, as well as the style of the mittens themselves! The tops are pointy as well as the thumbs...right on! Smiley

I LOVE this! What a great sweater!

I second Little Vintage...I would definitely wear that!

I'm totally at a loss as to how that could be improved, I think it looks great!! I really like the trim! (Icord?)

That looks a ton better than my first (and only!) dishcloth! What a great idea to use it as part of a spa basket gift Smiley I really like the yarn overs on it, makes it look pretty classy :-D

Thank you!  Grin

This is awesome! I've always been so scared of knitting in two colours, but now I think I'll try it. By the way, I absolutely LOVE all the Legend of Zelda games, especially Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess.

Great job! Cheesy

The great part is that I actually didn't "knit" the yellow triforce...I used the technique duplicate stitch/swiss darning to cover the stitches and make the Triforce! I'm totally sold on this technique! I can't even express how easy it was! I think the "hard" part was designing how the Triforce would look.

Here are a few links that I resourced while doing this project:

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/FEATspr06FK.html (from my awesome Great Fairy!)

I think my favorites would have to be A Link to the Past (classic!), Windwaker (I loved sailing the sea!) and Twilight Princess (so beautiful and great game play!) Also, I really Super Smash because you can play Zelda/Sheik too :-D
1488  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Nintendo DS Cozy: Triforce from LoZ on: October 17, 2008 06:04:12 PM
This is my very first cozy (and you can probably tell, too!). I just knitted it up in Stockinette stitch with a garter stitch border... I don't think I did enough edging so it's still curling...oh well.  This was also the first thing I really had to seam too. The Triforce looks a bit...wide...because I only had so many stitches to work with. But that's ok, the bigger the better Smiley

I used leftover Vanna's choice (linen color) from a scarf I made and I bought some Caron's Simply Soft for the Triforce using duplicate stitch (also my first attempt at that, and it was SUPER EASY and I will definitely be doing that again!) I also used size 8 needles.

I was inspired by Okia419 (thread here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=273371.0). Okia was also the one who mentioned duplicate stitching to me as well. She was very inspiring and I am very thankful!  Grin)

One of these days I will be able to shed my newbie knitter status Wink

Anywho on with the pics..

Hi Wandering Knitter!

I've run into the same sort of problem. So what I do before starting any pattern is to write down the pattern row by row in a notebook and as I complete each row I cross it off. I kind of relate it to swatching...it's annoying and time consuming to do, but it is worth it in the end.


Row 4: CO 2 stitches, knit till end. (18 sts)
Row 5: CO 2 stitches, purl till end. (20 sts)
Row 6: CO 2 stitches, knit till end. (22 sts)
Row 7: CO 2 stitches, purl till end. (24 sts)
Row 8: CO 2 stitches, knit till end. (26 sts)
Row 9: CO 2 stitches, purl till end. (28 sts)
Row 10: CO 2 stitches, knit till end. (30 sts)
Row 11: CO 2 stitches, purl till end. (32 sts)
Row 12: BO 2 stitches, work (knit) to end. (30 sts)
Row 13: BO 2 stitches, work (purl) to end. (28 sts)
Row 14: BO 2 stitches, work (knit) to end. (26 sts)
Row 15: BO 2 stitches, work (purl) to end. (24 sts)
Row 16: BO 2 stitches, work (knit) to end. (22 sts)
Row 17: BO 2 stitches, work (purl) to end. (20 sts)

Viola! Doing this makes it really easy to keep track of where I am in the pattern as well as what I need to do! Hope this is helpful to you! Smiley
