1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ideas on knitting a cigarette box and lighter cozie? on: June 29, 2009 01:48:20 PM
i think that's a cute idea. my BF smokes and i said one day i would make a cozy for the cig box AND each cig. lol.

anyway, if i were you i'd just use a pattern for an ipod sock like this: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/miscipod.htm to put the cigarette box in, and the lighter would just need a smaller version. I'm not sure how much he'd use the cozies but i'm sure it'd at least amuse him and he'd like the gift.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Want help with sizing on: January 12, 2009 02:08:29 PM
the best way to find out is to make a little "swatch".
Take the hook and the type of yarn that you want to use for your blanket, then chain 25-30 , then continue on and crochet a little square in the stitch that you'll want to use for the blanket. After you've got your square, measure how many stitches you've got per inch in width, and then how many stitches you have vertically as well.

then you will measure your bed and decide how many inches wide and tall you'll want the blanket to be and you'll use the numbers from your swatch to figure it out.

For example, if in your swatch you had 3 stitches per inch wide and 2 stitches per inch tall and you want your blanket to be 45 inches wide and 60 inches tall:   45 inches x 3 (stitches per inch) = 135 stitches (how many you'll chain and how many stitches wide the blanket will be) 60 inches x 2 (stitches per inch)= 120 rows = how many rows you'll crochet on the blanket.

But, the height of the blanket is much easier to do than the width, because after you'e started it you can just keep measuring it or placing it on the bed to see if it's the length you want.

here's a link http://ezinearticles.com/?Gauge-Crochet&id=85870 about swatches.

i am assuming it means that between rounds 3 and 8 make a total of 6 increases (so you will have 6 more stitches on round 9 than you did on round 2) they're just not telling you where to do the increases exactly. i hate it when patterns do that. i don't like to think, or figure things out :/

unless you mean it says "inc 6 sc evenly spaced" on every round from 3 through 8?

hopefully someone else chimes in to clear this up!

I save all my yarn ends too. it does seem like a waste. my idea is to use as trim on little cowl projects maybe, or something similar.

you can look into this web program that can convert an image into knitting graph- then you use different yarn color than the background  to make the words, http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro.htm

you can look into knitting intarsia http://www.purlbee.com/intarsia-knitting-tutorial/2008/6/30/intarsia-tutorial.html
or knitting fair isle : http://www.sheeweknits.com/fair_isle_101.htm

sometimes picking up stitches in the place where the hole would be helps

(you may have to decrease back down to the appropriate # of stitches after you pick up new stitches)
