What perfume am I wearing? It's called Febreze.

One of my best friends just turned 33, and I felt it was about time he replaced his much loved, long lost, wonder woman outfit from his childhood...

so, behold,

and, some action shots (with a quite bad phone cam!):
trying to not look too gleeful, and failing!

you will tell all with my lasso of truth!

there may have been vodka...

It was stupidly easy, but I'm really quite pleased with how it turned out!  Oh, and all my friends seem to be complete wonder woman geeks!  Cheesy


I used very cheap DK acrylic (stylecraft) in yellowy-orange, held double for the crown/tiara, and some left over burgundy for the stars.  I also used needles 2 sizes smaller than recommended, the yarn said 4mm, and I used 3mm

Crown/tiara - Cast on 150 (for an adult, this will allow enough space for velro to be attached), k2p2 rib for 7 rows.  cast off 50, k2p2 50 , cast off 50.  break yarn. 
rejoin yarn and decrease as follows:
*k, ssk, k to last 3, k2tog, k
k2, p to last 2, k2*
repeat until 4 stitches left
ssk, k2tog. 
break yarn and thread through

for the wrist warmers I cast on 45, did 3 rows of 2x2 rib, stst for 2 rows, then used the star chart from "stitch n bitch", and then finished with another 2 stst rows, and 2x2 rib for 3 rows.

The star on the tiara was the trickiest bit, i spent more time trying to draw a 5 pointed start than knitting the damned set!  apparently it's much easier if you have a set of compasses and a protractor! (a quick google search gives you a couple of methods if you have them...), once i'd managed to get a decent start, I pinned the paper template to the knitting and did a loose running stitch around the outside (kinda of an outline, with the only points actually going through being the points/indents of the star), so I would fill the middle in and removed the outline later... I think that makes sense...  If you look closely at the first picture you can see that I just did rows of sewing next to each other to fill (I'm sure there's an actual term for it, but I'm certainly not an embroiderer!)

If anyone happens to make it, or something similar, I'd love to see! (and let me know if there's anything I didn't make very clear...)

That lasso of truth pic is the funniest thing i've seen all week. I love the Tiara and it looks so natural on him.

Thanks guys  Grin

The pattern's currently on a post-it (that's how simple it is!), but I'll try and make sense of it later and post here
