11  Cabled Turtleneck in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitchick2 on: October 17, 2006 04:36:57 AM
This pattern was from Rebecca 28.  I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky and size 10.75 needles.  Thanks to those Craftsters who helped me out with that dumb cable chart back in August!  I finally knit a sweater I'll actually wear!  Smiley

12  Cable Chart Confusion in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by knitchick2 on: August 19, 2006 08:23:42 AM
I'm working on a cabled sweater from Rebecca 28.  Something's funky with the cable chart.  Or maybe something's funky with me.  (It's definitely possible!)  Here's the chart.  Why are there chunks missing? I wasn't supposed to do any decreases that would eliminate 8 stitches on either side of the chart.

So I thought maybe I was supposed to just continue with the same knits and purls that are above and below the missing chunks of the chart, but then I'm not going to get the small basic cables that are shown on the sides of the cable pattern in the picture, I'll just get a big rib.

I'm wondering if I should modify the pattern myself to make it look more like the photo or if I'm making some kind of bonehead mistake. Help!

13  Lace Panel Jacket/Cardi - with link to TUTORIAL in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitchick2 on: August 17, 2006 08:37:24 AM
It's only sort of self-designed.  I used a top-down pattern and included lace panels on the front and back.  It's knit with Cotton Angora on size 8 needles.  Links to my resource patterns are on my blog...

I've also added a tutorial http://knits-and-pieces.blogspot.com/2006/08/lace-panel-jacket.html

Finished.  I'll take it for a test drive this weekend to see how much I like it.


Sorry the pics are a little blurry.

Getting there...

A few hours at knitting club tonight should get me kinda close to the end...depending on the ratio of knitting to eating/drinking/chatting, of course!

Anyone still working on this?  I finally got the back piece done.

The triangle shaping was much easier than I thought it would be.  Although I'm not sure that I did the ssp decreases correctly.  But I was so excited to finish the back that I was actually motivated to start the front piece right away!

17  Twisty Vest in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitchick2 on: June 08, 2006 09:19:46 AM
Here's my twisty scalloped vest-ish sweater.

Twisty Vest - close by small::bird, on Flickr

The pattern is from Vogue Knitting from last Spring/Summer '05.  (And that's how long I've been working on it!)  The pattern included short sleeves, but I decided to leave them off, because 1.) I wasn't loving the short sleeved look so much anymore, and 2.) I had to FINISH this thing!!

19  Re: Circular Shrug / Vest - Scale Model - TUTORIAL in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitchick2 on: October 24, 2005 04:51:28 PM
Whew!  Finally done.  My gauge was 8 st/1", so I cast on 318 stitches, and used size 8 needles.  I used 5 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease, and I knit the entire 20 inches of mock rib.  As you can see, the evil marketing geniuses at Urban Outfitters subliminally convinced me that I would, in fact, need to wear some kind of flowered long-underwear-type shirt underneath, just like the blonde model.  So I obeyed.

20  Shrug with a TWIST! (now with tutorial!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitchick2 on: June 09, 2005 06:27:55 AM
This shrug was originally based on the "Hug" pattern form MagKnits, but I altered it to use stockinette stitch rather than ribbing, not decrease the back, and include a cable.

The front view gives me a bit of a linebacker quality, but I guess it's still wearable! That is, as soon as the temperature in Western New York drops below 88 degrees!  (Um...WAY below 88, this thing is WARM!!)
