1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: red TEAM ZISSOU HAT!!! (TUTORIAL!) on: January 20, 2005 06:54:52 AM
Here is my version, knit in the round on size 8 needles, brown sheep worsted, 88 stitches cast on.  Good for mens and Ladies M-L (nice and stretchy).  The guage is about 5 stitches per inch.  I am making others with different tops--this one is flat, and the others I am working on are tapering slowly into a bit of an i-cord top for that 'reservoir tip' thing...Thanks again for the idea ilovegenewilder!!!  The felt patches are so awesome too!!!

I  am working on the hat with Brown Sheep Worsted on a circular size 8, and I put 88 stitches on for a large size---66 seems a bit small, and would probably work for a size small/child.  My guage is 6 stitches/inch in the 2 x 2 rib.  Can't wait to finish it!!!

I have to say, as a beginner, the Pfaff rules!  I bought the Hobby 1016 in August, not knowing I would love to sew and not knowing about accessories for the machine.  The instruction manual was awesome, learned all about the machine and how to troubleshoot.  The 1016 is a very basic machine, for about $120, but a workhorse (my first projects included sewing plastic together for messenger bags).  I purchased it at the Fabric Place in CT(www.fabricplace.com), and they have a deal where you can trade your Pfaff in and get credit for it towards the next model for up to one year--which is what I got a month later!  The Pfaff Hobby 1042 is the last machine I will need (it does some basic serging too!)--the needle moves, there are lots of  feet included (zipper foot, clear foot, buttonhole, etc) with many accessory feet to purchase also.  It also has a one step buttonhole, decorative embroidery stitches--and the list price is about 399.00.  The Pfaff and the book Sew Fast Sew Easy have made me love to sew!!

OOH!  Love it!  and the label too!!   Shocked   Just started sewing, and have completed 2 Amy Butlers---a runway bag and the new swing bag.  Just bought these chelsea bag patterns too---looks a bit complicated for the handles--was it?  Any tips to share?  

I just got some Sublime Stitching patterns too to embellish with--love the mod Eames look--have been using mod fabrics and amy butler fabric so I haven't really embellished yet.  I will try and post pics of my bags when I get home--the runway bag in mod fabric from reprodepot looks like a cousin to this bag.

Thank you so much!  Just what I was looking for!  Didn't want to end up with a totally shapeless sock.  If you have that rockin' LHOP design available, would like to check it.

Hi all,

I would like to make golf club covers (not knit) for a christmas present, but can't find patterns or ideas how to do it.  I am new to sewing but have completed lots of bags, pillows, etc, so I just need some guidance or ideas from folks who may have done something like this before.

Thanks in advance,

I am now sewing and wonder if any one has ideas/patterns for *sewn* golf club covers rather than knit?
