1  Knit Robot in Knitting: Completed Projects by pinkhairedcyn on: November 03, 2005 10:24:23 PM

I knit this with a pattern from the Jess Hutch booklet: "http://www.jesshutch.com/booklet.html"

  I used left over Rowan Kid Classic and size five needles.  I'm a graduate student doing work with social robotics, so I thought that this guy was just the thing I needed hanging out in my office.

Pictures of him having an adventure with my cat are here:

2  SquiPod iPod Cozy - with TUTORIAL/PATTERN in Knitting: Completed Projects by pinkhairedcyn on: June 24, 2005 01:38:30 PM


Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun, color 115 Bit of Blue, less than one skein.  Tiny bit of misc black sport weight yarn for eyes.

Needles: Size 4 dpns

Gauge: 5 stitches per inch


Cast on 32 st.  Join for knitting in the round.  Knit 5 inches of stockinette.

One first round, bind off 16 stitches the stitches on needles 3 & 4.  On  the next round, Cast on 16 stitches to replace the stitches you just bound off.

Switch to the following decrease pattern:

Rnd 1 Needle 1 k1, k2tog, knit to end of needle
     Needle 2 knit to last 3 stitches, ssk, k 1
     Needle 3 k1, k2tog, knit to end of needle
     Needle 4 - knit to last 3 stitches, ssk, k 1

Rnd 2 knit

Repeat rounds 1 and 2 until 8 stitches remain.  Bind off in purl.

Back flap:
Pick up 16 st above where you cast off for the head.  Knit in stockinette for 2 inches.  Bind off.

Sew together the cast-on edge of the body, using back stitch.  Mark with safety pins 4 evenly spaced places on both the back and the front for the legs (8 places total).  At each marker, pick up three stitches and work in I-cord for 2 inches.

For the eyes, I placed the cozy on my iPod, marked the center of the front, and then spaced the eyes so they were each two stitches out from the center.  I duplicate stitched the eyes using the black yarn.  Here is the pattern:

X   X   X
X   X   X


Using sewing thread, sew a snap on the back of the cozy and the wrong side of the back flap, so the cozy can be snapped shut.


I hope people like it!  Please feel free to ask if you have questions about the pattern, and if anyone makes it, I would love to see pictures of how it turns out.

My hair - it's been pink for about six years now.  (Ignore the crazy pose, I'm showing off a shawl I knitted.)

Here are my Hurry Up Spring armwarmers . . . I reversed the chart and lined up the stripes and everything!  Plus, they really did make spring hurry up and come to Philly.

This is my Brioche Stitch Hat.  It was definitely really challenging.  I think that the description of how to do the stitch in the book is not very good, because I had to rip out my first attempt at it about ten rows in.

I just finished Under the Hoodie.  It took me like, four months, but it is definitely my favorite sweater ever.
