21  Re: Christmas scarves (or whatnot) in Knitalongs by wizkid on: December 04, 2004 09:48:53 AM
I, too, am a poor college student looking to hand made gifts to save money.

Right now I am knitting a scarf for my aunt.

It's garter stitch with two lines of knit overs going down the sides. It's knit in Lion Brand's Landscapes yarn, which is AWESOME. I love it.

Also on the list:

Possibly one cabled scarf for my uncle, beer cozies for my brother, and a knit bikini for my brother's wife.

23  Girly Skirt from Men's Dress Pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by wizkid on: May 29, 2004 08:13:48 PM
I made this skirt awhile ago, but I am just now getting around to posting it. I call it my "audition" skirt, as I made it especially for my audition for "Into the Woods." It served me well!

I made it out of a pair of men's dress pants that were like a dollar at a thirft store. I really wanted to find a good pair of pinstriped pants for the project, but couldn't find any that were anywhere close to fitting. Now everytime I go thrifting I keep seeing cool patterns that would make awesome skirts!

Depending on how large the drapes are, you could make clothes out of them. I made this dress out of drapes!

I also made a little lace-up top thing, there was so much fabric. I probably have enough to make a matching pantsuit!

25  Re:Puffed sleeves? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by wizkid on: February 26, 2004 08:56:55 PM
Ok, I shall try to explain this the best I can online.

You start with your pattern, and cut it in a line from the place where it starts to fan out into the round part of the sleeve. From there, cut four lines from the outer edge of the sleeve to the line.

The right hand picture shows the cut lines.

Then you spread the four parts of the sleeve apart, keeping the bottom corners together. There should be triangle-shapes in between each one. Retrace the pattern, and this will be your final pattern.

The red outline is the final pattern.

From here, to set the sleeve in-

Sew two lines of basting stitches on the rounded edge of the sleeve. Then pull on the top threads to scrunch it up. Scrunch it until it fits the sleeve hole, and pin it in place. Then sew it in!

Hopefully that made sense, pm me if you have any other questions!

26  Knit Cuff in Knitting: Completed Projects by wizkid on: February 26, 2004 08:18:11 PM
So I made this using some left-over yarn, mostly second hand stuff. I knit it with size 5 needles, with a 1 x 1 rib.
