11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First Quilt: Citrus Baby Quilt on: June 06, 2006 10:00:35 AM
Here's a quilt I made with an assortment of fat quarters I had around.  It's not perfect but considering I was winging it I think it came out nice.

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Hats... Patterns Added on: February 03, 2006 04:26:36 PM
I made this one for my little one who really does not need another hat.

And this one is for a friend's baby.  He's not here yet but I'm sure he'll need a hat.

Here it is being modled by my boy for full effect.

Please let me know what you think.  I always appreciate feedback.


Spiral Rib Hat (Blue)

This one uses sport weight yarn held double and US #8 needles but I've also used worsted weight yarn and #7 needles.  The hat is knitted in the round; I like to use dpn's but that's just me. This is a super stretchy hat good for the lumpy, bumpy heads of newborns; because it's sooo stretchy gauge doesn't need to be exact. For the record mine was about three and a half stitches per inch.

CO 64 st, join, and place marker to begin.

Rounds 1 thru 4: k2, p2 to end
Rounds 5 thru 8: p1, *k2, p2* repeat between * to last stitch, p1
Rounds 9 thru 12: p2 k2 to end
Rounds 13 thru 16: k1 *p2 k2* repeat beteen * to last stich, k1
Repeat rounds 1 thru 16 a secound time (32 rounds) then begin decreases.

Round 1: k2, p2tog to end
Round 2: k2tog, p1 to end
Round 3: k1, p1 to end
Round 4: k2tog to end
Round 5: k to end
Round 6: k2tog to end

Break yarn leaving a 6 inch tail, using a yarn needle draw the tail thru all remaining stiches to finish

Earflap Hat (Green)
I knit this in the round on #7 dpn's using worsted weight yarn.  Gauge is 4 st per inch

Earflaps, make 2
Cast on 3 st
kfb in first st of each row and knit remainder of st until you have 15 st.
Leave a 12 in tail and place on holder or dpn

With working yarn purl across first earflap begining at opposite end as tail.  With the tail in front and working yarn to the back cast on 13 st using long tail method.  Now, purl across second earflap as done with the first one.  Cast on 21 st as before.
Join and work three rounds in garter st.  switch to St st and work until hat measures 5 in.

Round 1: K6, k2tog
Round 2 and all even rows: K
Round 3: K5, k2tog
Round 5: K4, k2tog
Continue in this manner until you have 4 st remaining, k one round.  Break yarn leaving a 6 inch tail, using a yarn needle draw the tail thru all remaining stiches to finish.

Please let me know if you have any issues with either of the patterns!
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Short Row Hat: Pattern Added on: January 17, 2006 09:20:24 AM
Here's my most recent FO.

I thought the vertical stripes created by short rows would be an interesting way to use self striping yarn.


Gauge 17 st and 24 rows equals 4 inches

Cast on 40 st
Row 1 and all odd rows: k to end
Row 2: p 39 wrap and turn (RS)
Row 4: p 38 wrap and turn
Row 6: p 37 wrap and turn
Row 8: p 36 wrap and turn
Row 10: p 35 wrap and turn
Row 12: p 34 wrap and turn
Row 14: p 33 wrap and turn
Row 16: p 32 wrap and turn
Row 18: p 31 wrap and turn
Row 20: p 30 wrap and turn
Row 22: p 29 wrap and turn
Row 24: p 28 wrap and turn
Row 26: p to end
Repeat rows 1 thru 26 4 more times bind off and seam, or use 3 needle bind off.
You should have 5 wedges.

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / rockin' baby sweater on: January 14, 2006 04:04:58 PM
This is my first post but I've been lurking for a while now.

I knit this for my little guy.  The pattern is from Debbie Bliss' The Knitted Baby Book; I added the skull and crossbones from SNBN.  It took 2 days of nap time knitting to finish.  Let me know what you think.
