1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: touque question on: November 04, 2007 06:09:53 PM
I don't know what kind I did.. I knit two onto the left needle, then put the right needle inbetween the two stitches, not just thru the last one, and knit the next on.
I'll take another look thru knittinghelp.com and try out 1x1 ribbing that alternating cast-on..
Thanks for the help Smiley

Lol. Sorry.. Miss Violaceous is right, a toque is the Canadian equivilant of a beanie.

caclark4: It's Patons Canadiana yarn... I've never blocked before so I dont know what the options are with this yarn? its just a worsted weight acryrlic.

I was thinking about the crocheted edge, but the touque is for someone else (commissioned by a co-worker), and he wanted just a very plain hat - no colour changes, pom poms, ear flaps, designs, nothing - which is why I agreed to do it for him, figured it's a good begininer project. Kinda worried the crochet may complicate it too much for him. Also another reason I can't just knit some extra rows to incorporate the roll..

I liked how it looked with the cable cast on edge.. made a very clean line, but i dont want to spend all this time finishing it, and then either ruining it by attempting to block it, or just have to start all over again cuz of the edge. Thanks for the suggestion, but I think I'll just frog it all and start over, including some ribbing.

Any hints for ribbing?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / touque question on: November 04, 2007 10:09:04 AM
I'm new to knitting.. I've done scarves and other veriations of flat rectangles/squares, but am trying a touque now.
I finished a practice run through of the pattern... simple stockinette stitch, no cables or ribs or anything, on circs and dpns.. I've got the tension even, I can do the decreases with little confusion and even found that I like working with dpns... only problem is the rim rolls up.
From various knitting websites and here, I understand that the roll with just straight stockinette is unavoidable, but that different cast on methods might help.
Working the actual touque now, I used cable cast on, but its still rolling. No where near as much as it did with a knit cast on, but still.
My question is is there anything I can do to reduce the roll? Blocking maybe? Or should i rip it all out and start over with a couple rows of ribbing? Any suggestions?

Hi.....I still just love your Master Shake...I think I've already gushed on and on about it.   Cheesy   But I stumbled across a photo of all three characters done in crochet I think on craftgrrl.  I think she said that she crocheted around drinking straws for the fries?  I think that's right anyway.  If you want, I can try to find you the link.  I need to get on that ATHF crochet....just too awesome for words. Smiley


id love to see the pics if you still have a link! haven't started frylock or meatwad yet -- its been a busy month!

I've been trying to figure out a frylock pattern...cant quite decide how to do it tho...
My plan is to make just the empty french fry box, then crochet little french fries to go in it (its going to take forever!)
Can't figure out the box tho.. should i do it the same as Shake - one solid piece, but in an oval shape (and if so, how do i do that?) or make each side of the box separate and piece them together after?
Any suggestions?

Thanks everyone Smiley

spurtiic - It said I couldn't use the [ img ] thing because I had to make 10 posts to the board first to prove that I'm not spamming... but thanks for posting the pic for me Smiley I planned on eventually making a boxy brown eventually too.. but Carl... I dunno if I could figure out a pattern for him...

I tried writting down what I did as I went along, but I'm not sure how accurate it is now.. I'll look over it again and try to post a pattern..

Crocheted this for my boyfriend..

I'm extra proud of it becuase its the first thing I've ever crocheted (besides a basic scarf or afghan) without following someone elses pattern Smiley

My boyfriend requested a Frylock and Meatwad to go with it, so there will be more pics soon..
