2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Really Warm Hat in twinkle soft chunky (free pattern link) on: January 27, 2008 04:34:16 PM

I was trying to think of something to make with my lone skein of Twinkle Soft Chunky and came up with this simple hat yesterday. It only took about 2 hours and used less than 1 skein of this super bulky yarn on us15 needles. I wrote up a simple pattern that can be found on my blog here: http://www.knittingschooldropout.com/2008/01/a_quick_one.htm
I love this yarn, it's ridiculously warm and soft.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / stella's hat on: December 11, 2007 05:59:11 PM
i've been attempting to recreate the hat that my now 94-year old great aunt has been making for 40 years. hers was knit flat and seamed, with a neat flat top. i knit my best approximation in the round out of some gorgeous malabrigo, but was never really happy with the top. well, the other day, i set out to make another, and this time i'm very happy.

pattern: stella's hat (my own) the pdf link can be found in this blog post:

yarn: nature wool chunky, 1 skein (i've also knit one out of malabrigo)

needles: 5mm, us8 16" circular and 5mm dpns

it's a simple pattern. you'll only need to know how to knit, purl, k2tog and work in the round.

you should definitely try knitting from the book, a lot of the things look advanced, but aren't too bad.

for the bubble pullover, you only need to know how to knit, purl, ssk ,k2tog and pick up stitches. i was surprised how easy the pentagons were. the hardest part for me was sewing in the sleeves. seaming has always been my weak point.

thanks everyone!

i just finished the bubble pullover from the book knitting nature by norah gaughan. i am so thrilled with this knit, i've been wearing it all day!

i used less than 6 balls of rowan yorkshire tweed aran and knit the smallest size on us6 and us7 needles. i shortened the collar considerably because i just loved the way it was coming out as i was knitting it.

this is officially my favorite sweater now. i really enjoyed knitting it, especially the body, which is comprised of knitted pentagons.

a full blog post with too many pictures can be found here.

it came out great! i made this too and found the pattern errata on the berroco website here: http://www.berroco.com/ng1/ng1_corrections.html

the sleeves are actually knit on us10 (6mm) needles, according to the corrections. this info was missing in the original pattern.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / norah gaughan's anais on: September 15, 2007 06:50:37 AM
i just finished anais from norah gaughan vol. 1 , the berroco booklet available here: http://www.berroco.com/ng1/ng1_photoview_pv.html

the pattern was easy to knit, and i love the finished item. unfortunately i discovered i was allergic to alpaca while knitting it, so i'll never get to wear it. i'm planning on making this one again, next time in 100% wool.

i used the recommended yarn, berroco ultra alpaca light and it took just under 4 skeins to make the 34" size.
