1  Does anyone know how to knit a "shawl collar" or have a pattern for one?? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by amobabe on: November 08, 2005 06:25:24 PM
I'd love to make this sweater but am not sure about the "shawl collar" construction. Would I just cast on and increase gradually at the edges?? Do I increase in the middle (of the back) AND the edges or do I just knit up and up..??

Any ideas,hints, or pattern leads close to the picture below would be appreciated. Greatly.

The sweater is from Anthropologie's newest catalog.

I wanted to make something to match a pair of black and white and orange booties for a new baby boy. Here's what I came up with (if anyone wants the pattern, let me know and i'll be happy to type it up):

3  my first intarsia attempt: a sweater from Zoe Mellor's Animal Knits in Knitting: Completed Projects by amobabe on: March 23, 2005 05:42:21 PM
I let my daughter pick out the sweater she wanted from Zoe Mellor's Animal Knits: 26 Fun Handknits for Children and Toddlers. I did a bit of tweaking in the sizing department (making it narrower and longer than the pattern called for due to daughter's enviable proportions from some recessive, elusive gene that must skip many generations). Also changed colors (black instead of navy, just to be cool or maybe because I didn't trust the navy swatch on my monitor). I used merino yarn from knitpicks and, all in all, I'm really pleased with it.The yarn came out to maybe $22 - $24 and I have SOOO much left over: enough for a felted bag for me and a couple of hats.

The yarn is really soft--my daughter hates wool but not this stuff.

I was so nervous about intarsia--thinking I'd have holes everywhere. Happily I didn't. Weaving in all those ends took hours, though.

I don't know if this helps but I made one for my toddler using squares only. Put together, it's basically a diamond shape made up of squares. I left out a square right in the middle for the head/neck.

Here's a photo:

Yet another cat from LMKG. Yes, I followed the directions for the bear but the ears are just not bearlike for some reason. Anyway, here's my daughter clutching the cat for dear life right after I told her the cat was meant for a baby and not for her.

So, I did a "bear" from LMKG but it looks more like a cat. I used wool felt for the eyes and nose and used a super soft alpaca from knitwits.com. Here it is:

I just got a Sulky Iron On transfer pen and it is the coolest thing ever.  So I took my Mr. Show book and lightbox and decided to make Bob and David towels, because why not?

WOW. I am in love with your towels, your idea, your execution, everything. Wow. Wow. Wow.
Big puffy heart to you.

8  newsboy hat in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by amobabe on: January 18, 2005 02:02:28 PM
Here's my first attempt at the newsboy hat. It's adult-sized but my model isn't:


I went the cheap route and used elann wool from my stash. I love it but it's a bit big, next time I'm going to make it a 1 inch smaller around.

Here's my hat from LMKG. I altered the pattern a bit--it was bigger than I needed and the earflaps, as written, were especially large. Come to think of it, they're pretty large w/ my modification too. I used 100% wool from elann, dyed w/ kool aid.

I love the hat but the pom pom looks pretty ridiculous on my silly head.
