1  Seraphim shawl in Knitting: Completed Projects by rippedoffknitter on: November 29, 2008 08:30:07 AM
Seraphim shawl from Mimknits, simple and beautiful pattern.

Added beads to the pattern section for some subtle sparkling.

Never thought I'd wear such a lace shawl som much, but it is tucked around my neck a lot, wonderfully warm, soft and light. The yarn is LittleKnits Indie II, which I can't recommend enough!

Wow. Special thanks to those of you who are now inspired to keep knitting just for this. And please, never be afraid to alter patterns, the great thing about knitting is that you can make exactly what you want and what fits you. Take good measurements of yourself and a favourite garment of yours to get hints of fit and ease (go to www.knittingdaily.com for help on how to measure and find your shape).

Most of the mods are briefly described on my blog, length alterations (more repeats of the plain side cable) and i-cord edgings instead of hems. I hope it is ok to post the alterations here since I'm not revealing any of the original pattern, please support designers by buying their patterns!

I haven't received any feedback on this yet and have not tested it myself after writing it down. If any of you use this I'd love to hear from you, please tell me if the instructions make sense and if they are correct. Email: rippedoffknitter(AT)gmail(DOT)com


trp = Twisted raised bar increase: pick up strand between sts (as for m1), twist it to avoid a gap and purl. One stitch increased.

The two rows described here are set-up rows to allow you to repeat a section of chart A for as long as you want.

Finish the 12 first rows of chart A for lower body.
Next row (of chart):
p3, hold 2 sts to front on cable needle(cn), k2, ptbl in 1st cn st, k1 from cn,  trp, p5, trp, 2sts to cn in front, k2, ptbl in 1st cn st, k1 from cn, p3

Next row:
p3, k2, p1, k2, p7, k2, p1, k2, p3

Next row: row 5 of chart A. Continue in chart.

I repeated this once but if you want an even longer lower portion you can repeat everything over again once you've finished row 12 the second time( I think that would be too long though, for reference, I am a tall and lean person and I would not want this longer unless I was making a dress. Each extra repeat adds 10 rows (two set-up rows + row 5-12 in chart A) so your row gauge tells you the length you're adding per repeat.

Happy knitting!

4  Ironwork socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by rippedoffknitter on: September 02, 2008 07:14:30 AM

This pattern has both cables and lace and crazy needle maneuvers and I don't know what, it took a lot of focus an concentraion but it is really well written and the charts are great...and I'm so glad they are finished! Off to a special friend they go.

5  Rogue extended version in Knitting: Completed Projects by rippedoffknitter on: August 28, 2008 02:13:16 PM

One of my favourite projects of all times, both to knit and wear...

I lenthened the body and sleeves quite a bit and changed the bottom cable design to make it more proportional with the length. Also substituted the hems with attached I-cords.

The hood fits so well and I actually use it quite a lot, never thought I would.

More pics and details on my blog, I might post instructions for the cable alterations if I can make any sense of my notes :-D

I finished mine with some minor modifications and it turned out great. And Michela, mine has 3 inches of positive ease which gives room for a layer or two under it.

Seems like I'm not allowed to upload images to Craftster but all the details are here:
