152  long noro rainbow arm socks...**with added pattern..ish! in Knitting: Completed Projects by spirals420 on: July 25, 2005 07:29:46 AM

these are sooo pretty... they are knit out of noro kureyon i designed them myself... and its a easy eyelet design forming the diagonals.... so yeah on to the pics...

and a close up of the eyelet pattern and ribbing stitches

so what doyou all think?

i got the lace pattern from a wonderful book called99 knit stitches

this is my try at a pattern...
using noro kureyon (worsted weight yarn)
on a set of 4 dpns 4.5mm (7us)
cast on 32 stitches total
cast on 11 stitches on the first needle, 10 on second, and 11 on third
k1,p2,k2,p2,k2,p2 first needle
k2,p2,k2,p2,k2 second
p2,k2,p2,k2,p2,k1 third
this makes for a nice thumbhole (optional)
continue this ribbing for 8 rows
(to work thumbhole) continue ribbing (alternating knits and purls) but instead of knitting in roung just knit like its on 2 needles, back and forth  GOT ME SO FAR?
continue like this for 9 rows (for no thumbholes just continue in round for those 9 rows)
continue the ribbing in the round for 6 more rows after joining in round again
continue ribbing pattern on needles 1 and 3 for needle 2 just do stockingknit
do 2 rows like this
start lace pattern
(it uses 9 stitches so put extra stitch at opposite side as the thumb hole GOT ME?)
ROW 1: k2,YO[slip1,k1,psso], k5
ROW 3: k3,YO,sl1,k1,psso,k4
ROW 5: k4,YO,sl1,k1psso,k3
ROW 7: k5,YO,sl1,k1,psso,k2
ROW 9: (k2,YO,sl1,k1,psso) twice, k1
ROW 11: k1, (YO,sl1,k1,psso) twice, k2, YO,sl1,k1,psso
ROW 13: k2,YO,sl1,k1,psso,k2,k2tog,YO,k1
ROW 15: k5,k2tog,YO,k2
ROW 17: k4, k2tog, YO, k3
ROW 19: k3, k2tog,YO, k4
ROW 21: k2, k2tog, YO, k5
ROW 23: k1, k2tog, YO, k3, YO, slip 1, k1, psso, k1
ROW 25: k2tog, YO, k3,(YO,sl1,k1,psso) twice
ROW 27: K1, YO, sl1, k1, psso, k3, YO, sl1 ,k1, psso, k1
ROW 28: purl accross

Repeat this pattern 3 times

2 rows of ribbing with stocking knit on 2nd needle after all the pattern repeats are finished

10 rows all ribbing on each needle
for second arm sock make thumb hole on opposite side... if you are putting it in..
also i didnt reverse the lace pattern for the other sock but you could...

Thanks to thankyoulocust we now have the reverse lace pattern to add here... thanks a tonne!
ROW 1: k5, k2tog, YO, k2

154  Re: Bernat 'Fur Out' Yarn Recall in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by spirals420 on: April 16, 2005 01:29:20 AM

i sure did make these outta the fur out stuff... (i know i know they are tacky.. but they are supposed to be) they are caterpillar arm socks...

i gave them away to someone before i knew about the recall... i hope shes carefull....

oh and i for got to say that if you wanted to use like the short eyelash yarn maybe that would work.. or the long fun fur and then trim it.. ihavent seen anything else like the fur out stuff tho...

155  my devilish hooded shrug... now with added tutorial ish on pg 2 in Knitting: Completed Projects by spirals420 on: April 15, 2005 11:27:45 AM

it is knit out of bernat chunky softee acrylic yarn and is 3 pieces.. to long rectangle for the arms and a big squarish piece for the hood...
i love the 2 little red devil horns on it... it was super fast to make and soooooooooooo very fun to wear...

let me know what ya think!

EDITED TO ADD--- I have not had time to write an actual pattern for this. I will paste the recipe from page 2 below. The pictures should work now at least. Please still feel free to write me with questions. Thanks

on size 4.5mm(7US)straight needles cast on 32 stitches with whichever color (i used black of course)
then do k2p2 ribbing for 8 rows(or desired length)and then  do stocking knit stich the rest of the way
then switch to size5.5mm(9US i believe) and also switch to other color(i used red)
then alternate color stripes every 4 rows(or whatever you want) 4 is good tho cause you can carry the string up with the other color anything more then that and youd have to cut it and sew in the ends.. YUCK!

i did some basic decreases every few stripes so that it would be semifitted by the wrist.. and then increased up the sleeve of it to componsate for the arm getting bigger... got me??

so basically with these sleeves they are 2 long rectangles that by the end of of they should have been increased to 38 stitches each sleeve...i did 19 stripes of each color to get the desired length i wanted...(not including the ribbed cuff) then i cast off

for the hood i didnt do any shaping to make it not pointy on the back... i like the look of it like this...
so i decided to use a solid color for the hood. you could continue the striping..
so i cast on about 75 stitches..and just did stocking knit stitch until it was big enough to fit my head.... sorry no numbers.... you would have to fit it to your head too... i used the kitchener stitch to bind it off...

then i took the 2 sleeves and overlapped them a little to make a decent sized neck hole.. i also like the effect of the stripes and the sturdyness of the front and back there then i sewwed that together... then i took the hood and whip stitched it on to the new neckhole... i had to overlapp the hood edges alittle but once again it gives it a tighter fit of the hood when its on...

for the horns i placed safety pins marking where i wanted them and in red i used double pointed needles and picked up 2 stiches on eac one in a sorta triangle shape and knit around with some decreases to make them pointy until they were the size i wanted...

i did go around the horns with the red to tie them on a little better and make them a little wider around the bottom... ok... well i think thats about it...

sorry if its too long and sucky... but i basically winged the whole thing...
