I finished my boobholder! Grin
It's super-d-duper!
I decided to make the sleeves 3/4 length and bell them ever so slightly. Turned out awesome.
I used lamb's pride worsted weight yarn.
Hope you like it!

Poster boy is not val kilmer:
I was trying to figure out who to use as my poster boy... Once I saw that the original pattern was bowie. I decided to support the unsung hero of glam rock brian eno. I'm halfway done and will post a pic respectively.

the circumference of my head is about 22".
I just finished the hat on size 6 needles with red heart classic worsted weight acrylic yarn and it fits perfectly. I will post a picture of it in the next few days.
If you are having trouble with increases try this website. Knittinghelp.com . It has video how to's. A true godsend
99  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: My head is too small!! Hat help. on: December 06, 2005 11:31:13 AM
aaarrrrrrgh. The same thing happened to me. next time try using smaller needles. originally with worsted weight yarn I used size 8 needles and it turnd out WAY WAY WAY too big now I'm unravelling and re-knitting on to size 6. Its a lot of work. but the hat looks super cool when you get the gauge and tension right. Hang in there

Yours look amazing, OP! Very beautiful. The comstume is excellent.

I have a question for anyone who has successfully completed this pattern.

I know how to wrap and turn (thanks, www.knittinghelp.com Cheesy), but most instructions begin with stitches still on your left needle. I have none. I have the right amount of stitches according to the pattern, and I followed it exactly.

For Row 2: Inc 1 (i.e. K1 then knit into back of the same stitch), *P2, K2* 8 times, P2, W&T.

So I did just that, and when I purl those last 2, the row is done! How do I do a W&T with no stitch there? Do I just wrap the last purl stitch?

Is that confusing?  Cheesy

Thanks so much, crafters!

If you increase one stitch knitwise at the beginning you will have two knit stitches and then continue with the *p2, K2*.

and since you started with 36st, that increase in the second row will give you 37st. If you continue with the p2, k2 that shouldnt finish with a odd number. the last purl stitch in the sequence should leave you with an extra stitch. If you counted all your stitches I'm not sure what the problem is. Maybe something happened with your increase. nevertheless when you are finished that row it should just look like *k2, p2* 9 times with one extra.

I hope that helps
