12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / a few things i've made.. [[image heavy]] on: June 07, 2009 03:04:10 AM
since i should be studying for finals..i figured i'd go on craftster instead! haven't posted in a while so i thought i'd post some things i've made this past year or so..

first off my collection from a school fashion show. these are from may '08. the blouses were modifications of burda's JJ blouse. the skirts were my own design. dresses were my own design. the jacket was a trench coat pattern that i shortened and modified to look more like a moto jacket. shorts were based off a pair of shorts i own. and the pants were a woman's pants pattern modified to fit a guy. click for a larger image.



and here are a few random things i made and had on hand to take pictures of..all of them were my own design :]


the most comfortable cardigan in a gray lightweight jersey knit fabric.


made for a guy friend who wants more cardigans. it still needs buttons.


a top i pieced together with scraps of a cream jersey knit fabric.


skirt made from random fabric. it has an elastic waistband and pockets. i'm not a huge fan of the fabric, though.


a simple navy blue skirt w/ small front and back pleats and pockets. it definitely needs to be ironed but i like it :] i kind of messed up on the zipper but i don't think it's too noticeable..

thanks for looking :]

i like this a lot, im actually making two of them right now. but but following your pattern, the edges dont look like yours do in your pictures.

aah! i'm sorry! i realized i wrote the pattern wrong when i was sitting in class today (yeah, weird, i know)!! the 3 stitches on each side are supposed to be garter stitch (thats all knit stitches right?) so all the purl rows should really be:

k3, p9, k3

sorry again  Embarrassed

WOW what a coincidence!!  i bought that same fabric to make myself a hoodie but it's just been sitting around in my fabric stash because i havent been able to decide on what color to use for the ribbing. i think i might use brown tooo if you don't mind  Smiley  great job on the hoodie!!

thanks guys! for the scarf i followed these instructions for the cabling but i didn't follow her exact pattern. this is what i did

co 15 stitches.

row 1. knit
row 2. purl k3 p9 k3
row 3. knit
row 4. purl k3 p9 k3
row 5. k3. sl3 onto double pointed needle or cable needle or pencil, chopstick etc.. and hold in front of work. k3. k3 from other needle. k6.
row 6. purl k3 p9 k3
row 7. knit
row 8. purl k3 p9 k3
row 9. knit
row 10. purl k3 p9 k3
row 11. k6. sl3 onto other needle and hold in back of work. k3. k3 from other needle. k3.

repeat from row 2-11 until you reach your desired length! mine was about 1.5 skeins of wool-ease thick and quick on size 15 needles.

hope that was helpful! it's really simple to do and it was a really easy first cable project!


WOW love the hat !!! were did you get ? fing the pattern
 

it's actually less of a hat and more of a...head band/scarf/thing. but it's from knitty. here's the link. mine's not as wide because i was using leftover yarn  and ran out but i think it's the perfect size for my head!

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / i gave knitting another chance =) [[now w/ scarf pattern]] on: November 22, 2007 01:57:07 PM
after SEVERAL failed attempts to complete a project (i'm incredibly impatient) i put down my knitting needles and picked up a crochet hook. that was working out well until i saw a cabled scarf that i really wanted. so i decided to give knitting another chance, this time w/ super chunky yarn and big needles. after reading through a kajillion cable instructions i finally decided on one to follow which worked out quite well!

so here's my scarf. its wool-ease thick and quick in spice.


here's a closeup of the cables


it was so easy and i was so happy with the results i started one for a friend. here it is




i've also been dying to make knitty's calorimetry for a while but never felt motivated enough to do it. but i managed to get this done in 2 afternoons and i love it!! i cast on 110 stitches which turned out to be too many but i used two buttons instead of one to hold it together which worked out well!

great job on yours!! i hope my pattern made some sense.. i'm curious as to how you made your ears since i can't quite remember how i managed to do mine. if you could post a pattern for it that would be awesome!
19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: hats! on: October 27, 2007 09:08:47 PM
i love the giraffe hat. sadly i can't crochet. i always get confused. my mom is good at it though ;P i'll have to show her your pattern and see if she'll make me one Smiley since you don't remember the ears they look like the ones on a hat my mom made for my cousins baby so i'll get her to use our ear pattern... if she can find it.... Thanks for posting the tut i love it!

oh what kind of yarn did you use on the giraffe hat?

i used wool-ease in gold and i doubled up the yarn to make it a bit thicker.. be sure to post pictures if your mom makes one!!  Smiley

thanks! i'm glad you guys like them =). i basically made all three in the same way but since i used different yarn for all of them it required constantly trying them on. the basic idea i something like...

for the basic dc hat:
row 1: ch4, dc 9 times in first ch, join round, ch3
row 2: 2 dc in each dc around, join round, ch 3
row 3: 2 dc in next dc, *1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, repeat from * until end of round, join round, ch 3
row 4: 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, *1 dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc, repeat form * until end of round, join round, ch 3
row 5: 1 dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc, *1 dc in next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc, repeat from * until end of round, join round, ch 3
row 6: 1 dc in next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc, *1 dc in next 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc, repeat from * until end of round, join round, ch 3
(i usually stop around here or continue in the same manner for a round or 2; it really depends on the yarn and hook so it's more trial and error)

after that point i usually just dc in each dc all around join the round and ch3 and continue in that way until it's the right length. sometimes i throw in some decreases or increases if it doesnt fit correctly.


for ear flaps: after joining the last round chain 3 and dc in the next 15-20 dc then ch 3 and turn and dc across decreasing on both ends and continue doing that until the bottom of the earflap. then i do the same thing on the other side.

for eye masks: you can follow this tutorial.

for horns/ears for the giraffe: for the horns i just chained like 10 or 15 or maybe 20 i can't remember. then i joined the chain. ch3 dc around join row and repeat. then when i got to the top i switched colors made some increases in the first round of brown, dc around for the second round, then decreased for the 3rd round. then i just ran some yarn through to close the tops. for the ears: i do not remember.. but the brown part is separate and i just attached after. i might be making another one of these hats later so i'll post better instructions for the ears if i do..

for batman ears: make 3 triangles and attach..something like that..hopefully i figure it out so i can make the second one..

then you just attach the ears/stalks whatever w/ some yarn!

sorry for such cruddy instructions. i made these up as i went along so i can't really remember how i did it exactly. but good luck if you try it! oh and the yarn is doubled up and i used an I9/5.50mm hook for all three.
