31  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Not so babyish Baby hat - tutorial on: February 02, 2007 06:44:17 AM
My sister is having baby this month so I decided to knit her a little hat since she lives in Finland and it will be cold when the baby arrives.

I'm not a big fan of baby colours so I decided to make it red, because she doesn't know if the baby is a boy or a girl. The ribbon is removable. I am knitting a onsie to go with it.

I didn't use a pattern I just knit it up quickly, this is what I did:

It is knit on size 5  DPN.
it is chunky weight cotton yarn.
CO 54 sts, divide between 3 needles.
K 4 rows.
Row 5 - *K5, slip 1, K1, slip 1* repeat to end of row
Row 6 - K3, CO2 *K 5, CO2* repeat to end of row (Knit the CO sts)
Row 7 - K all sts.
Knit 12 rows even.
Row 19 - *K8, K2tog*Repeat to end of row
Row 20 - K all sts
Row 21 - *K7, K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 22 - K all sts
Row 23 - *K6, K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 24 - K all sts
Row 25 - *K5, K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 26 - K all sts
Row 27 - *K4, K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 28- *K3, K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row29 - *K2, K2tog* repeat to end of row
row 30 - *K1, K2tog* repeat to end.
Draw yarn through all sts and fasten.
Thread ribbon through holes (for a girl) leave empty (for a boy)

The bear is modeling the hat since the baby isn't here yet!

32  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Yarn Sub for Sweater in SnB on: January 30, 2007 12:46:14 PM
I was thinking about knitting the kool-aid dyed sweater in the SnB knitting book, it's the green and yellow one. Does anyone know what type of yarn can be substituted for what it's made with. I am a college student and can't afford anything expensive, but I really want to make it. What weight is the yarn?
33  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Picture Board on: January 30, 2007 07:42:03 AM
This is my first post. I was hoping it would be in the knitting or crochet section, but alas I have nothing finished right now and everything I have completed is given away.

This little project was on my mind for a LONG time and I finally got around to completing it. It is a board for holding pictures, it's especially good for all those little wallet pictures people give you.

It is made out of a piece of stiff cardboard, fabric, quilt batting, ribbon and buttons (or flowers in my case).
I didn't have a pattern, I just made it how I thought it would be made! Smiley

Hope this works
