This is something that I really want to make, but probably won't be able to start until next year.

I'm taking longer than I thought too. I was originally planning to use some leftover Cascade 220 in red, but I ran out of yarn halfway through. So I restarted with some mystery wool that I had laying around. I should finish today though, hopefully.

I'm definitely making this! Right now I'm stuck in two long projects that I don't want to work on so knitting Flora will give me a nice break. I may even finish this by tonight!

This is very cool looking. Most stashbusting scraves I've seen just have stripes of different yarns but I really like how yours has a main yarn with stripes of the others throughout it. I may have to steal this idea  Wink

Thank you for all the nice comments! I loved making this sweater and I think I will make all my next sweaters using this top down method. I'd highly recommed it to anyone considering trying it out.

Thanks for all the nice comments!

thisonegoesupto11 - I used Cascade 128 Chunky which is really nice to knit with but probably isn't the best felting yarn

aduaidh - My cat normally doesn't like beds but he loves to sit on my knitted items when I'm blocking them and they're still wet. So I actually gave him the bed before it was completely dry (and still smelled like wet wool) so he loved it right away, but this is probably why the sides fold in too.

In terms of the pattern can somebody help me with what she labels RT and LT. I'm having a bit of trouble with them. Meaning I need an explanation as simple as possible, I keep getting a purl accidentally for one  of stitches.

For RT (right twist) keep the yarn in back (like during a knit stitch) and knit into the second stitch, but don't slip it off and then knit into the first stitch and slip both of them off together.
LT (left twist) - keep the yarn in back and knit into the second stitch through the back loop (don't slip it) and then knit into the first stitch and slip both of them off together.
I hope that helps.

 I just finished knitting all the individual pieces. I attempted grafting the two body halves and came out with a very obvious seam so I'll guess I'll have redo it. I'll practice on a little before I attempt again.

Oh wow! That is some really impressive intarsia work and I love the idea of making knitted "pictures" to frame.

I made the kitty pi from this site: http://wendyknits.net/knit/kittybed.htm. It was fun to make and my cat really likes it. Since I'm new to felting I don't think I felted it enough or dried it right so the sides of the bed kind of fold in, but he likes it anyway.
Here is Scorpius posing for the camera:

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Top down raglan with skulls on: September 04, 2005 09:27:48 PM
I was inspired to make a sweater with skulls like "Skully" from SnB, but more fitted. I followed the insctructions for making a top down raglan from glampyre's site here: http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id44.html. Doing sweater's top down is great because you can try it on as you knit so you know it will fit and best of all there is no seaming  Cheesy. The chart for the skulls is also on glampyre's site. Anyway, here it is!

and a closeup of the skulls
