1  Re:pattern / problem finishing Adriafil sweater in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by hinke on: April 20, 2004 06:16:41 PM
Thanks a lot for all the advice, but as you can see .. i did it my way Smiley  I've decided to settle with the neck line and weave in the cord front/back/front, under my chest and over my back:

I'm quite pleased with the result since my solution served three goals:

- the neckline looks ok like this - although i'll problably wear a small top underneath or at least a bra when going outside, i'm no hero really when it comes to being sexy in public Grin
- the waist that actually was a little too wide/not shaped enough to my taste, is fine as well now.
-  i made myself happy, since i've been seeing a lot of these tunic-like tops in the stores lately that i really wanted to buy but couldn't afford.

LAWebChick, the yarn i used is Schachenmayr Hair - it's really light and soft, and a bit more fuzzy when you buy it since this is re-used yarn from a frogged cardigan i never wore.

So, i'll have to do the steeking on some other project - i'm dying to cut my scissors through a piece of knitted fabric!

2  pattern / problem finishing Adriafil sweater in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by hinke on: April 17, 2004 02:46:56 PM
Last week I knitted the Adriafill 'Pull Hippy' but now that it's finished and sewn together I'm having a problem with the model;
The neck line of my sweater seems to be different from the sweater the model is wearing on the photo that goes with the pattern:

sweater on Adriafil photo, with straight v-neck:

neckline of my sweater, that doesn't have the same v-shape but is more like a rectangle (?):

I'm sure I knitted the exact same parts as drawn on the chart that goes with the pattern:

I'm supposed to weave a cord (you can see it on my picture) "into the stitches around the neckline" but that doesn't change the rectangular shape of the neckline.
I also tried to think of other manners to sew the parts together but I really don't see any other way than I did.

So I'm not sure... Am I missing something in the pattern (http://www.adriafil.com/html/img/riviste/mag34/modelli/file_istruzioni/uk/11_hippypull.pdf)
or did Adriafil make a mistake or even altered the sweater for the sake of picture?

I'd love to hear your ideas and, hopefully, clues on this problem!

a few years ago I did some kinky crafting as well. This is a crocheted gag (to be used like this) made out of some fuzzy spring green yarn, it has a working crocheted closure too:

never used it though (-:

4  Re:messenger bag with gusset tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by hinke on: March 22, 2004 05:58:09 AM
Last week I made two bags with this tutorial, it's been of great help!

The first one is a small bag for my boyfriend, made of painting canvas and a strap of an old bag I didn't need anymore:

and I made a bigger one for myself, recycling a huge supermarket bag of quite ugly shiny plastic (and waterproof!) canvas.
I cut out the pattern pieces for the messenger bag randomly so the name of the store ('Dirk') is visible but not complete anymore. The lining is made of a stripy cotton with three little pockets of the red plastic.
Since these cheap supermarket bags are sort of hot in my hometown Amsterdam, my messenger bag version of it has a hip feel as well and I'm pretty happy with it:

For both bags I adjusted the pattern a little, by cutting the flap of the bag and the backside as one piece - I did not really see why those two should be separate. I used velcro closures instead, and the red one has an adjustable strap I made with some parts taken of on old bag.

Since it's interesting to see some results, I'll post you a picture of my perky poppy:

This one is 13 cm high - or 5,11811023  inches for you non-Europeans (-;  
So it's quite big and I'm not sure what to do with it yet.  I guess next time I'd knit the heart with black yarn as well to make it look more like a poppy.
