Is anyone interested in doing the Paris Loop pattern or similar Paris Loop inspired garment with me? I've seen a couple of lovely ones out there but I know lots of you have it on a to do list somewhere. I'm a nursing Mama and this pattern looks super baby friendly  Wink I'm going to use some soft boucle wool in multi shades of blue that I recycled from a thrift store jersey. I think its double knitting but who knows! C'mon folks you dont need the fancy wool for this, surely.

I'll do it with you Cheesy, what needles are you planning on using?  *I'd need to get mine* Let me know.... Wink

Yay you mommalion!! Grin

This is me radiating enthusiasm . I'm embarrassed to say that I'm not sure about needle size. I'll need to check the pattern again and find my conversion tables ... hopefully the round needles I  own will match  Wink 'cos I'm sure not buying more. I'll check it out tonight and get back to you, tomorrow (baby willing). Thanks so much for keeping me company in this. BTW how many cubs?

What is the "Paris Loop" pattern?  I haven't heard of it.

Its here annalou
I just checked out th needle size conversion....12.75mm! Is she high!  Shocked
I wonder if I could get aqay with wrapping the wool 3 times round a 4mm and dropping the 2 extra loops next row. Hmm, must try a tension square. Undecided

I am thinking about doing this pattern as well (after I finish the Salt Peanuts one), but I am going to use 11, 13, and 15 needles since that is the largest size that comes in the Denise needle kit and I am not buying any more needles. What kind of yarn are you using?

I have two .  A 3 yr and 1 1/2 yr.  They keep me busy... Wink

I have my yarn picked out....i've had it since before my son was born(almost 4 yrs).  It's this great colorful multi colored yarn!!!

I'm game for making either the loop or an inspiration.  I know I have up to size 21 in straight needles, but I'm not sure what I have for circulars.  Good chance to use my recent organization o' the needles.  Plus, I've been promising myself I'd use up some of that yarn stash.

      i've been playing and have establised 3 things
1  My chosen recycled varigated blue boucle will need to be doubled for this project.  no problem.
2  Winding 3x round a 4mm needle gives very strange, not 12mm.
3  My circular needles only go up to 5mm.
     So, I will be knitting on 12mm straight needles, 8mm straight needles (unless I have 9mms somewhere and find them in time) and 5mm circular needles and using doubled mystery blue wool boucle. I'll cast on using a mutant 3/4 inch needle I found (so its not too tight) and add a few more stitches (10-20). Strangely enough I was already using the 12mm needles to knit up a capeish thing our of brown feathers type acrylic. I might just shift it up to the 8mm and try knitting both projects together (in a kind of relay).
mommalion your yarn sounds nice. Do you know what the fibre is?
What are you using annalou?
