Just say that if you cut them, they would unravel, and they're waaay toooo beeeeeaaaauutiful for them to just unravel. Tell him she'll wear them as a scarf when it gets cold, and then stick them somewhere deep in a drawer. Or better yet, if your husband is still stationed during the winter, have her put them on for a few minutes and send him some pictures of her in the scarves. I'm sure that would make him happy.

Or, if you really need to make something, take the scarf and sew the opposite ends so you have a big ring. Gather one side, slap some elastic on, and viola, a skirt. Then have her wear it for two minutes, take a photo, send.....heh. Then stick it in a drawer.

What if you bought some satin of a same color as one of the colors in the dress, and widened the cups with strips up both sides? Then, you could continue the strips down over the actual straps. I think it would actually look cute that way, if you make the strips a inch or two wide, they would gather as you crossed them over in the back, and it would make the cups slightly more supportive, too.

Here's a bad MS Paint of what I'm trying to represent:

It's looks similar, but it's a different Barbara Walker lace. I'm not sure of the name, though.

Finished! I posted about it here (http://https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=172182.0[url]) because I was overly excited about my new camera.

As you can see, I didn't include the purl flower motif. I switched it to leaf lace panels from Barbara Walker.

I used < 3 skeins of the new Lion Cotton-Ease in Maize.

The Bag!

A giant seashell, a picture of horseshoe crab eggs, and a chatwin novel. This picture makes me look much cooler than I actually am.

Closeup on the lace

I used some crazy $20 a yard silk I had leftover from a project a long time ago. It was cut into 8 x 8 inch squares, so I had to patch it together and just barely didn't have enough, so you can see I patched in a bit of brown fabric for the bottom.

This is a more accurate representation of the colors:

I just got a new camera and this was my experiment, hence the bunch of pictures. The pattern suggested putting a piece of cardboard in the bottom for stability, but I figured cardboard would deteriorate, so I used the plactic cover of a notebook. Odd, I know, but it has the perfect amount of flexibility.

The inside is shiny and amuses me constantly.

I can't find anything about the patter becuse all the sites are in danish, but it seems like the front is knittied in two pieces on the diagonal, a la the clapotis scarf, decreasing one stitch at the beginning of each row and increasing at the end of each row. Either way, I really want this pattern because trying to make it up as you go would be beyond frustrating.

I've been working on the bag, too, but decided to forgo the big flowers and instead put in a leaf lace panel. For some reason, this feels like it's taking forever to knit. That, and I keep knitting it late at night and messing up the lace pattern.

It's the new lion brand cotton ease in maize. I like it, but you can tell it's a cotton acrylic blend.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Increasing in Daisy Stitch on: May 16, 2007 03:04:22 PM
Egahds, I cannot figure this out.

I'm trying to design a top down raglan sweater with the first few inches of of the collar in daisy stitch. Daisy stitch is as follows:

on multiples of 4, plus 1

row 1 and 3 (rs): K all stitches
row 2 (ws): K1 [p3tog, but do not let stitches drop of left needle, yo, and p same 3 stitches tog, k1] to end
row 4 (ws): K1, p1, K1, [p3tog, but do not let stitches drop of left needle, yo, and p same 3 stitches tog, k1] to last 2 stitches, p1, k1

it creates a flowerish looking stitch in diagonal rows.

What would be a good way to increase for the ragla shaping without disrupting the pattern too much? I've tried a couple of different increasing patterns and nothing seems to keep the daisy pattern.
