1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Daisy Snake-Charmer from Knitty on: July 02, 2006 11:56:11 AM
Hi everyone!

I haven't posted onthis board in ages, but I learned how to knit a few months ago and I'm now addicted to making baby sweaters for all my friends who have babies.
So, I thought I would share my latest creation - the Daisy Snake Charmer sweater. I got the pattern from Knitty.com, and used acrylic yarn that I already had.

I also discovered in the process that those snakes are pretty quick to knit, and the 2 "practice snakes" I made turned out to be great cat toys

because you're creating the yf stitch between stitches, from nothing.

I'm a beginner in the knitting business, so sorry for being a bit slow..  Tongue
How is the YF stitch created form nothing? as far as I know, it's created by passing the yarn forward, then putting your needle in the next stitch, passing the yarn back around the needle and knitting it - so 2 stitches are formed from one. But I would still need this one stitch to make the yf..

man, this is frustrating!

Thanks fozziebear..
I thought about this option too, but in the book, they explain and show how to do the yf (which is exactly the same as yo).. I was hoping that there weren't 2 different meaning of the term yf in the same book.

Besides, if I just passed the yarn to the front, then did the skpo, I would have to pass the slipped stitch over 2 new stitches - and that wouldn't make sense. Or would it?

Has anyone ever knit this dress and can clarify?

Hey everyone!
I'm currently knitting the "Dress with eyelets" from Debbie Bliss "Baby Knits for beginners".

I already made half the back, but I am stuck on this row:

I have 89 sts.
The next row reads: dec row K1, [k2tog, yf, skpo] 22 times. 67 sts.

From this I gather that I'm supposed to K1, then do the k2tog, yf, skpo sequence 22 more times, and the end result is that I'll have 67 sts on the needle.

But this doesn't make sense - it takes 5 stitches to do this sequence (2 for the k2tog, 1 for the yf and 2 for the skpo). 5x22 = 110, and I only have 89 sts!

It would make perfect sense if the sequence only required 4 sts. So I'm assuming I'm doing something wrong.

Does anyone have any idea what?

Thanks much!!

How about painting or decoupaging a dish for Matzos? There's an endless variety of styles you can choose from..
same for painting/embroidering or even knitting an afikoman cover..

Do crafty minds ever go into a relaxation mode? 

Hopefully not  Grin

that is sweet!
I can just imagine it in white with all sorts of different kinds of eys from iron-on transfer paper.. so you can make it vintage or punk (which wouldn't really go that well with the Yoga concept, now that I think about it)
Or iron on the eyes part of Ghandi's face  Roll Eyes

I just close my eyes when it's Yoga relaxation time.. I never knew you should use a pillow. I'll be the envy of my class  Cheesy

 I just throw the old collars out, and with 3 cats in the house, that's a loooot of collars..

How's it holding up?

Those look great!! cool and clever.
If I ever saw them in a store I wouldn't be able to resist them.. and I'd probably buy the whole lot just for the packaging  Grin

way to go!
