3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Android Hat on: November 04, 2012 07:06:34 PM
Hello! I recently made myself an Android Hat. (I haven't created anything for a long time!)

And here's the very easy pattern!

What you need

4.5mm double pointed & cable knitting needles

Green yarn (TLC cotton plus solid in kiwi)

White yarn (TLC cotton plus solid in white)

stitch marker

some white felt

yarn needle

sewing needle with some white thread


CO 108 stitches on the cable knitting needles, join the round.

Ribbed rows white yarn

knit 2, purl 2 around, repeat till the ribbed rows are about 1 inch

use a stitch marker to mark start of each row.

Stockinette rows green  yarn

switch to green yarn and work in stockinette stitch till the stockinette stitch rows are about 4 inches.

Reducing rows
switch to double pointed needles

After the 4 inches of stockinette rows, start reducing every 12 stitches around

ie. knit 10, knit 2 stitches together, knit the next row

reduce row knit 9, knit 2 together, repeat till end of row, knit the next row

keep reducing every alternate row, ie. reduce row, k8, k2tgo, repeat till end, k next row, k7, k2tgo, repeat till end, k next row, k6, k2tgo etc ..

reduce till you are left with 9 stitches, pull yarn through the remaining 9 stitches and sew ends in.

My gauge is 5 stitches per inch. I have a large head, so the above measurements matches my head! It may be too big for you! Alternatively, you can use any other basic beanie pattern you prefer, in your preferred type of yarn and needle size to fit your head!


pick 3 stitches at 1 side of the yarn, icord for 10 rows, bind off on 11th row

repeat on other side of hat.


cut 2 round circles of white felt and sew onto the hat slightly above the ribbed rows.

Sew in all yarn ends.

I made a couple of amigurumis yesterday. Cheesy An angry bird and a Eeyore! Smiley
Both were quick and fun! Cheesy and are gonna be given to friends!

Angry Bird! (free pattern on ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/angry-birds-cardinal)
So fun to make and so cute! I added a lower beak and tail feathers. Smiley

Eeyore (free pattern on ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/blue-donkey-keychain---free-amigurumi-crochet-pattern)
Very quick project but hate the ears. I hate changing yarn colours. In the end, I just crocheted two "ear-looking pieces in pink and blue and sewed them together). lol

edit: just saw the post on amigurumi thread ... oops.

wow, this is gorgeous!
i wish i was as advanced a knitter!
i'd wear this all spring!
you know, i'm not an advance knitter either! i only know the basics and only attempted lace recently. i haven't even tried cables. it's not a hard pattern. it just keeps changing, just need concentration that's all.  Smiley

It certainly is gorgeous!  Love the color, too--neutral but not boring...shows off your lovely stitches!
Can't believe it is only your second lace project...can't wait to see more!
Thanks for the pattern link...looks like a wonderful spring project!
thank you! SmileySmiley
Excellent work! I love the lattice-style pattern that is right above the edge.
Thanks! that's my favourite part of the pattern as well.
I agree with all the other comments - it looks great. I think I'm going to have to try that pattern next.
Thanks for sharing your blocking method too - I think I'll have to try that sometime Smiley.
i've only blocked my knitted items twice .. the first time the wet block way ... and it was a hassle and took so long to dry. lol. this is my 2nd time blocking my knitted item and this method worked! heheh ... try it and let me know if it works for you too.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / DodododoNuts! on: February 22, 2011 11:05:07 PM
I joined another swap on ravelry and this time, it was doughnuts!
The pattern is free from  here http://doortje-d.blogspot.com/2008/01/doughnut.html

The stripey one looks mouldy Tongue the pink one looks safer to eat. Tongue

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cookie Tape Measure on: February 17, 2011 08:31:18 PM
I joined a donut swap on ravelry and was playing around with cute food ideas and decided to make a cookie tape measure. I've seen tape measure covers like this before, this is my interpretation! I posted the super easy pattern on my blog if you're interested! Smiley
