1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with German Pattern? on: September 20, 2012 03:50:21 PM
I would like to make this swan dishcloth, but the pattern's in German.


So far I think I've been able to figure out:

that the pattern doesn't include the border
rechte masche is knit
linke masche is purl
odd rows are knit (maybe?)

This part I can't figure out at all:
A = abwechseld 3R 1 L ( Beispiel: 2A = 3R 1L 3R 1L )
B = abwechseld 2R 1 L ( Beispiel: 2A = 2R 1L 2R 1L )

Any help appreciated!

I just started a new afghan this morning, it's going to be big and I would love some company in the coming weeks! Any ripple pattern you want to use would be fine, I'm using this one:


I nearly went with this one, it's pretty, too! Maybe for the next blanket!


Mine's going to be butter yellow, sage, and tan. I'm halfway into Row 2!  Smiley

(btw, you don't have to download it as pdf, if you scroll down they have the directions printed out lower on the page, too.)

Would there be any interest in starting a new monthly 12" square CAL? I'd be happy to start one on Jan 1 unless someone else had plans to do so. I was thinking of posting only one pattern each month, though. Then you could have the option of doing two the same per month if you had the time/inclination, or you could do one patterned and one plain to alternate, or you could stop at 12 squares and have a lapghan ready by next December. 
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Stuffed Bell Pepper on: December 03, 2007 01:45:19 PM

Knitted stuffed-bell-pepper on the left, actual stuffed-bell-pepper on the right. It amused me that the knitted version happened to turn out the same size as the genuine article.  Cheesy
Made it by starting the Curly Purly Pumpkin pattern in green but casting off earlier than instructed and leaving it open, and then knitting a yellow square for cheese, the red rice is the base part of another pumpkin turned over, and then it was stuffed and all the parts sewn together.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Rose Blanket on: October 28, 2007 01:57:09 PM
I want to crochet this blanket like I've never wanted to crochet anything in my life. 


Might change the background or borders to greens, though. Or maybe do different colors of flowers to keep it interesting. 

I hope I can figure out the pattern.

Thoughts? Color suggestions? Company?

7  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Pumpkin-along on: October 10, 2007 01:05:35 PM
I just tried one of these little pumpkins out and was surprised at how cute and easy and fast it was:

Here's the pattern:

Anyone want to join me while I make some more? It's a great little project for practicing with your dpn's. (or use a different pattern if you want, there's also one on Knitty that uses straights)

*editing to add: I just realized you can make these with straights! Cast on requisite number of stitches, follow the k4, p1 pattern across, then do k1, p4 on the way back, and continue to alternate. Continue with pattern directions, seaming up the side before cinching ends.*

Lots of people have been posting about them ~ I rounded up a few threads in case anyone wanted to look at pictures and variations.

fuzzy pumpkin!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Rose's Scarf in Doctor Who on: September 22, 2007 09:25:39 AM
Has anyone any thoughts about Rose Tyler's scarf? (from the Doctor Who episode Boom Town)

Is this knitted? Crocheted? Felted a bit?
Any ideas for yarn?

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Designing Dishcloths? on: July 11, 2007 08:52:01 AM
I would like to make my own dishcloth pattern and am finding it unexpectedly complicated! I've sketched out my animal shape on knitter's graph paper, I want the animal in garter and the background in stockinette with flat side facing. I'm not sure what's next, though... do I follow the chart back and forth as I see it, as if everything is a right side row ( i.e. Animal boxes would be knit regardless of side, background boxes would be knit on front, purl on back)- or do I only follow it as if they were all even rows and just purl  back plain on odd?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Four Corners Dishcloth on: June 28, 2007 03:21:32 PM

Pattern:4 Corners Dishcloth
Sugar n' Cream in "Strawberry"

This was SO MUCH FUN to knit!  I didn't know how to do the invisible cast on to start it so I just did that method where you make a loop over your thumb, and I didn't know how to do a garter graft to finish it, so again, I winged it, with the tail and a tapestry needle, but I think it turned out fine. It's an ingenious pattern...it did take some counting at first but once I got used to it and figured out what was happening I didn't need to refer to the instructions for every row. I love what it does to variegated yarn, and I want to knit more! (back to the craft store....)
