11  very slouchy cabled beret in Crochet: Completed Projects by cynalune on: November 03, 2008 07:06:48 AM
Now that I think about it, I wouldn't have made it so slouchy. But I like it all the same  Smiley
I've just learnt crochet cables.

12  My first attempt at freeform (armwarmers) huge pics in Crochet: Completed Projects by cynalune on: October 29, 2008 04:10:54 PM
I think I like this technic, it's very liberating. Next time I'll try it with several colours and with seed beads.  Smiley

What do you think?

is anyone still making sweaters ? I'm late Grin

I have two WIPs. The first is my main project, a sweater in tweed :

I love it but it's demanding all my concentration. I'm making the sleeves before the body because I'm not sure whether I have enough yarn or not.

I have another simpler project that I knit while watching TV :

This one is made with cheaper acrylic. There is eyelets in the back, because I want to add a ribbon.

That's easier than you think. You just switch to the contrasting colour on the cable and go back to the main colour for the background. I'm unable to do fair isle and even I can use this technique, though my result is not as nice as your pic :

15  Marquise Shrug in Crochet: Completed Projects by cynalune on: August 14, 2007 06:16:31 AM
Here is a shrug I've just made :

(I'm sorry by the way. I learned from this pic my top is sheer Shocked )

The body is double crochet, the ruffles are knit cables (I know you can crochet cables but I haven't mastered the technique yet ) with a crochet edging.

16  I need yarn in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by cynalune on: August 08, 2007 05:19:02 PM
So I want to make a marilyn collar sweater with this motif and a few cables :

Problem is, I don't know what yarn to choose. I need something with good stitch definition to show off the cables, but I'd prefer something relatively soft, too,  since I won't be able to wear a shirt underneath because of the wide collar. Right now I can buy Debbie Bliss, Rowan and most of the french brands. Money is no problem, I want to splurge for my belated birthday Grin
I thought I could use some cashmerino, but I heard horror stories about its tendency to stretch and pill so I'm a bit affraid of this yarn.

Thanks for your help  Smiley

17  stupid problem : I don't know where to stop ! in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by cynalune on: August 07, 2007 03:55:05 AM
I apologize if it's not the right board, but since my sweater is both crocheted and knitted, I didn't know where my post should go.

Here is my problem : I'm making a crochet sweater with a ribbed waist band and I don't know if I should stop right now or if I should go on till it reaches my navel. Here it is :

Is it an OK cropped sweater or should I go on ? I must say I hope this length is OK because the crochet part was fun whereas the knit part is so boring.
Also, should I add black crocheted lace on the collar and sleeves or would it be overkill ? or should I add just ribbing on the sleeves ?

Edited to add :
Thank you for all your input Smiley

I decided to let it cropped for the moment, since I can always add some inches later.

And I gave up the idea of the black lace; I made an edging in the same color instead.

Here it is :

The ribbon was a try but I'll remove it.

Thank you again Smiley

Thanks  Smiley

ariaya : the end is its ugly part, I'm affraid; here it is :

Its length is about 1,80m ( an online  converter tells me its 5.9ft) and it took a bit more than one skein of Phildar Prface; I used a 2.5mm hook (ravelry tells me it's between a B and a C hook)

19  skinny grey scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by cynalune on: July 19, 2007 03:13:47 AM
It's a scan of my new scarf. I'm sorry I can't make a better pic of it, as I don't have any camera at the moment.

It's inspired by Luna Lovegood's scarf in the Order of the Phoenix (I want it sooooo much but I can't see enough details on the movie stills) and by the one skein scarf in the Happy Hooker.

Edited to add a quick diagram of the half of the scarf. When you've completed it you just turn, return to the starting chain and do the other half. Cheesy

E.T.A.#2 : SKerri13 was kind enough to make the translation I wasn't able to do. It's on page 4 Smiley

Here's mine. It's Kidsilk Haze in a beige shade :

I seem to make about 1 repeat per day, so I'll knit it in two weeks ...if I don't tire of it before, as I'm the queen of abandoned projects  Roll Eyes
