31  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What to do with eyelash yarn??? on: January 09, 2006 10:41:35 AM
I got 1 oz. of bright orange eyelash yarn as a gift.  I'm not a fan of orange or eyelash yarn.  Does anyone have any creative knitting ideas to use it for?  I would rather do something other than the traditional hat or scarf.

32  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with Squid hat on: December 21, 2005 08:08:54 AM
I *really* want to make the hat found here: http://www.poormojo.org/cgi-bin/gennie.pl?Squid+232+bi

Only problem.....this is for a baby, and because I am a newbie knitter I don't know how to adjust patterns yet.  Can anyone help me turn this in to an adult size?

33  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / TMBG knitted dolls on: December 20, 2005 07:18:08 AM
Does anyone have a pattern for dolls similar to the ones found here?


34  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Joining? on: December 20, 2005 07:09:10 AM
I've just started knitting in the round and I'm working on my first hat.  How the heck do you join?  I tried my own botched attempt at it, so the band of my hat looks really bad.  www.knitting.com tells how to knit in the round, but not join.  Can anyone point me to a tutorial, or tell me how to join on circular needles?

35  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / t-shirt recon-resizing sleeves? on: December 19, 2005 06:32:11 PM
I searched for tshirt sizing tutorials and found a few good ones.  My question is how do you handle sleeves that are oversized?  I have a few HUGE tshirts and I think I can handle making the body part smaller, but what do you do when the short sleeves are HUGE too???

36  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Large tshirt to small tshirt on: December 19, 2005 12:51:22 PM
Can anyone point me in the direction of a really good tutorial to make a large tshirt a smaller one?  I have a tshirt from my favorite band, back when I used to wear baggy boy tshirts.  Now I want the tshirt to be cute and fitted.  I'm horrible at sewing, but I can have my mom help me with her machine.  I just don't want the tshirt to look all weird when I am done.

37  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / pithy hat questions on: December 02, 2005 08:11:47 PM
Hi everyone, I'm working on the pithy hat pattern on Little Tutle Knits right now and I have some questions (I know many of you have actually made this)  Questions should show up in red.  I would appreciate any help, I love this hat and want to finish it! Smiley

And the revised version for the e-town hat:
using worsted weight yarn and size 5 needles, cast on 68 stitches. Join, work 1 x 1 (knit 1, purl 1) ribbing for 6 rounds.
next round: knit 4 *knit 2, make 1 (use whatever increase method you like best)* to end. Switch to size7 or 8 needles, and work as follows:
round 1-3:*purl 1 (knit 1, purl 1) three times, knit 3; repeat from * to end of round. (I got to this point, can someone tell me what order this goes in? I'm confused as to what I actually do)
round 4: *purl 1 (knit 1, purl 1) three times, cable 3; repeat from * to end of round.

How is the cable pattern made, it doesn't really say here.

if you prefer a bigger cable with smaller sections between, work this instead:
round 1-3:*purl 1 (knit 1, purl 1) two times, knit 5; repeat from * to end of round.
round 4: *purl 1 (knit 1, purl 1) two times, cable5; repeat from * to end of round.

work these two rounds until hat measures 11-12".  (Rounds 1-4 over and over until the hat is 11" long?)
Next round: knit 2 together around.
next round: knit 2 together around.
Cut yarn, leaving a 10" tail, thread tail on yarn needle, weave through stitches on circular and pull to tighten the hole and close top of hat. Weave in ends.

Can anyone direct me to patterns to make the following things I've seen on the delias website?

39  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / raglan top help? on: November 26, 2005 03:08:21 PM
This top was in another post and I would like to try to knit it.  I am a beginning knitter and don't know much about sizes, needles, ect.  How do I make this pattern a size larger?  Does this pattern call to use circular needles???  What length? 

I used 1 balls of Rowan Polar on size 11 needles. (gauge = 12 st and 16 rows over 4)

CO 49 st
1 x 1 rib for 2 inches to create neckline

Raglan Increases: (you will need 4 stitch markers to separate the body into 5 sections: left front, left sleeve, back, right sleeve, right front)

Row 1, RS: k2, p6, yo, pm, p1, yo, p7, yo, pm, p1, yo, p15, yo, pm, p1, yo, p7, yo, pm, p1, yo, p6, k2
Row 2 and all WS rows: knit all stitches
Row 3 and all RS rows: k2, *p to next marker, yo, sl marker, p1, yo* repeat from * 3 more times, p until last 2 st, k2

Continue raglan increases until sleeve measures the circumference of your upper arm. End with a WS row.

Split sleeves and body:
RS: k2, p to 1st marker, move all st from 1st to 2nd marker onto scrap yarn (right sleeve).  P to 3rd marker.  Move all st from 3rd to 4th marker onto another piece of scrap yarn (left sleeve). P to last 2 st, k2.
WS: Knit all st
Continue in reverse stockinette stitch for 4 more rows
Switch to 1 x 1 rib, for 5 rows. BO all st

Pick up all st from scrap yarn.
Work back and forth in 1 x 1 rib for 5 rows. BO all st
Seam ribbing on sleeves

Thats it, youre done!  This is easy, I swear! 
Finish with a pin at the neck, or sew a button on, whatever you want!
The other cool thing about this, is its reversible! I like the reverse st side better, its more vintage looking.

40  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / joining? on: November 21, 2005 11:03:06 AM
I am making a hat right now on circular needles and after the cast on the pattern says "join, k1, p1 for six rows"  What does it mean to "join" and how do I do it?  Is there a video of it anywhere?
