1  Heel-less Sleeping Socks from Nancy Bush in Knitting: Completed Projects by rhiandmoi on: March 16, 2008 02:43:46 PM

These socks are super fast and easy tube socks. This pair I actually switched out the knits for the purls (so I k3 p1, instead of p3 k1). If you are loving sock yarns, but don't want to mess around with heels and shaping and what if it's not the right size issues, this is a terrific sock. It is basically a very long, very skinny hat. So if you can knit a hat, you can knit this sock.
Pattern:Heel-less Sleeping Socks, from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush
Yarn:UYC Ditto, Colorway Purple Cascades #4803
Needles:Addi Lace Turbo US Size 4, I think 48 inches
Circular Style:2 socks by Magic Loop.

2  Summery Tank, or the first half of a twin-set in Knitting: Completed Projects by rhiandmoi on: April 11, 2007 11:41:04 AM
I am calling this tank "Liberal Bias". Overall I am pleased with how it came out, but there are a few things I would do differently if I did this again. First I would make the whole thing longer, it is a smidge short. I thought the cotton would grow slightly more than it actually did. And secondly I would put a purl ridge in for the rolled edge. But overall I think this came out pretty close to what I had in my mind.

This is the sketch I started with:

I think there is a turning row missing. I think you work color #1 ending on a purl row, then purl one more row in color #1, then switch to color #2 begining with a purl row, and work color #2 in stockinette.

Edit - I mean to say that the random purl row is actually the turning row.

I did some swatches to show you what I am talking about:

Top as you described it earlier, purl with the new color one row then begin stockinette with the new color.
Bottom as I described above, purl with the old color then begin stockinette with the new color, starting with a purl row.

After turning to make the flap

Since that is such a deep cowl I think it is one really wide rectangle that is not to high. Like this:

5  Top Down Raglan in Knitting: Completed Projects by rhiandmoi on: April 04, 2006 01:09:18 PM
I used a top down raglan calculator to make this sweater. For a little bit of detail I did a panel of reverse stockinette with 3 ribs down the center, and 2 ribs down the sleeves. I used Knit Picks Merino Style in Hollyberry.

I highly reccomend using the raglan calculator. Or you can use Lucia's raglan generator. It is not a top down raglan(it's bottom up) but still a great sweater.

Hello everyone Smiley I think I might join this here knitalong, with a few modifications to the pattern. First I have some questions:

1. If I wanted to have it come down to the hip area, I would knit the rectangles longer, right? But then I'd sew up the parts that I added that were longer than the F to F area in the pattern, so that I didn't end up with some kind of crazy-huge armholes.

2. If I wanted there to be more overlap in front and/or a lower button/pin point, I would make the ribbing longer, right?

3. In the pics, after sewing, when it's circular and laid out, the center bits look like they foomp out some - are they loose in the back, when worn, or do they conform to your shape more?

4. If I wanted to add sleeves, I would just pick up the stitches in the area between the two F's, and just go wacky with 'em?

I'll be honest with ya, I'm trying to recreate something that's a lot like this:


Different stitchpatterns, but the same shaping Smiley Do you think that's possible with this pattern?

That sweater that you linked to is knit as a T and then seamed up to make it a sweater. It is 2x2 ribbing in the body to give you the stretch. I don't know what the lace edging is exactly in that pattern, but you can use any you want.
If you wanted to do it in pieces you would knit the back, with the short rows for extra length in the back and then add the sleeves by knitting a tube, or a rectangle and make a tube, and then just seam them to the body of the sweater. Knitting the sleeves as rectangles is probably easier to add the lace edging to.

9  Pirate scarf and hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by rhiandmoi on: October 17, 2005 11:59:22 AM
This was my first adventure into double knitting. I watched the video on knittinghelp.com a couple of times and then I went for it. The trickiest part is castng on which is not on the video, and I actually made a smal boo boo and twisted my strands while doing it. But oh well, this is a gift for a guy friend and he wouldn't recognize that as a boo boo even if he saw it. Then I tried using the same jolly roger chart to make a hat, with  limited success. I was doing it round instead of flat so my tension on the white part is all wonky. If I were to do it again I would knit the hat flat.

10  Fun Hats now with Mohawk Beanie Pattern Link & Diamond Earflap Hat Pattern Link in Knitting: Completed Projects by rhiandmoi on: September 19, 2005 09:44:31 PM
These are some fun hats I have been knitting up.

This is a modification of the Nautilis Hat. I started it, but I forgot to print the pattern directions so when I got to the  Row 1: *K2tog, K7(8, 9), YO* around; Row 2: K, I didn't know what to do. I improvised a couple of rows, but it didn't look very good so I just worked a K1P1 rib for a few inches. I think it sort of looks like a cupcake. I did an invisible rib bind off though which was fun.

These two are mohawk beanies. I knit the beige one in the round, then the blue one I knit flat. The Boyfriend thinks they look sort of like Trojan helmets. I am working on writing out the pattern for these.
Edit: Here they are!
Pattern for knitting in the round
Pattern for knitting the hat flat

This hat looks like intarsia, but the inside looks like a crazy spiderweb because I just used 2 balls and didn't wind up a jillion bobbins. This was a stash buster so I was just sort of winging it. On the inside I sort of tacked down the crossover strings. This hat features my first pompom, my first earflaps and my first I-Cord. I need to practice making pom poms.
