HelenaJane, 1/4 Portuguese, that's great! I'm all Portuguese myself and I didn't get that spicy temper, ehehehe Wink

I just adore it!
I'm making a tube top myself, but I think I should have increased more sts in the boob area.. Are you busty? (lol) I might do one more similar to yours.. I just don't know to do the bobbles, but i'll make something up Wink
Thanks for sharing!

Snowflake, my bag is really small, so it doesn't get too heavy. Also, I used 2 strings of a really thick yarn, so the bag is really.. how should I say.. well, it's not easy to lose shape.
But I know what you mean... I sugest you try two things next time: make the handle thicker, by knitting more rows than the suggested ones in the pattern (I did this in a bigger bag I did for x-mas and it helped) and use a thicker yarn like I did.
I hope it works... but maybe there are more solutions out there Wink
The flowers/stars (the green one really looks like a star), well... I really needed a knit pattern for a flower and I didn't found any I could make. So I made up one. (lol). The.. humm.. (sorry, I'm not a great english speaker!)... petals? were knitted one by one and I think I can explain you the pattern.. let's see:
CO 6 st
k 1 row, p next row (2 times)
on the knit row, k2tog k to the last 2 sts, k2tog (you know have 4 sts)
Continue to do that until you have one st left, and then bind off (bind off is finishing, right?).
I used 9 mm needles for the green one and 6 mm for the blue one, so the bigger the needles are, the bigger will the star/flower thingy be.
You just have to join the petals together by seaming and voil! It's done.
I hope this helped...

Well, I decided to make up a pattern and I'm almost done. I don't know yet if it's going to work, but I'll show you the finished work.
Thank's anyway Tere and HelenaJane, if it doesn't work, I'll consider buying the pattern..
HelenaJane: and what do you think I feel when I see all in inches? Eeheheh.. I even memorized, 1 inch = 2.54 cm. I sugest you convert all to inches before you start your projects like I do, in centimeters Wink

Oh, thanks you all!
The pattern for the scarf I got it from here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/free_patterns/scarves.php
But I knitted 10 rows of garter stitch and one of elongated (thanks for correcting me, ehehe) stitch.  It's really easy and a very quick way to knit a scarf too.

Ohhh... I just love it!
I have one question only, did you made any decreases ou increases for that top? I'm thinking of making up a pattern for something like that, since I'm from Europe and it's very hard to me to understand some patterns..

tinybits: I used the pattern from http://www.knitblog.com/onmymind/Rag%20Bag%20Pattern.gif
It's really very easy and quick! I've made it while I was watching Hulk! (the movie)

Hello everyone!
I've been reading this forum for some time now, and taken some ideas Smiley I'm Portuguese and what you call an advanced begginer Wink
Here you can see the "two hour hat" (but it's too short for me), another hat I've made (the dark green one), a bag, from the rag bag pattern (this is very easy and cute! I use two strings of a thick yarn) and some unfineshed flowers I've made up.

And this scarf I knitted using the allongated stitch:

Thank's for looking Smiley

Hi, this is my first post here Smiley

I've been wanting to do this "boobholder" for a long time, but english is not my first language (I'm from Portugal), so I've some problems with the pattern.
Woul it be possible to do this by knitting 5 pieces (back, 2fronts, 2sleeves) instead of one? If so, how would you do the sleeves to make that effect (sorry, can't remember the right word)?
