To create a carrick knot, take one of your long, taped pieces of cord and make a loop with the masking taped end on the underside, pointing upwards. Blue Garter » Patterns. We rescued this hat from the sad fate of abandonment on a sidewalk during a week of solid rain — we let it sit for a few hours after we first saw it in case the owners were backtracking for it, but it was only getting more and more sodden and forlorn.

I hope we’ll run into another young family in the neighborhood who will say, “Oh, we had that same hat, but we lost it!” And I’ll be able to give it back. Meanwhile, it’s having a happy second life warming my big girl’s big head. Want an easy-peasy thumbless mitten recipe for a baby in your life?

Rowan Creative Focus. I started a tradition one year ago I am determined to continue this year: knitting Mr. Joseph a new scarf. As someone who’s dating (and living – aka putting up with) a knitter, I know sometimes he feels like he defaults to the bottom of my knitting priority list. Generally, I’ve been okay with this for two reasons. First, he sees me knitting constantly: I knit while I watch television, get a few rows done while food is simmering on the stove, in bed while watching more television, in the car – even if it’s just a trip down the street for a bottle of wine or cup of coffee – and even, once, while in the bathroom (it was just to gauge swatch while I was applying a hair gloss- yarn that has witnessed something this intimate can never be allowed to make its way into a finished garment – I don’t need fiber spreading my beauty secrets).

Because I’m knitting practically all the time, I’m always talking about who the item is for, why I’m giving it to them, asking his opinion on a pattern, etc. Winter bis 2011.

DROPS Vidéos Techniques Nous vous montrons ci-dessous comment transformer un écheveau de laine en une pelote sans utiliser une pelotonneuse.

Défaites l'écheveau et mettez le en rond avec « l'intérieur » vers le haut. Veillez à ce que tous les fils soient placés correctement en rond sans qu'ils ne se croisent. L'écheveau est habituellement fixé avec quelques fils autour pour tout maintenir, ces fils doivent être coupés et retirés avant de commencer à défaire l'écheveau. Commencez à enrouler le fil autour de vos doigts et formez une pelote, quand la pelote devient plus grande, continuez à faire tourner la pelote au fur et à mesure que vous enroulez le fil pour former une jolie pelote ronde.

I took a cue from a Lisa Stickley design to make the yellow pattern (also similar to an older Denyse Schmidt print, and a new large scale print by Lotta Jansdotter).

Other inspiration: Elfin Hats. While I've not inspected one personally and cannot confirm it, I imagine the tall, conical hats of elves are chock full of secrets and stories from centuries past. In hopes of harnessing this intrigue, I've made these Elfin Hats using a technique as ancient as elves themselves. Twined Knitting employs two strands of yarn that wrap around one another. The process is simple, but the results are as fascinating. Twined Knitting's fabric is dense and warm but also friendly and supple, and both sides of the knit fabric have a distinct texture and character… which means, two hats in one! For the main yarn in this pattern I used Purl Soho's incredibly soft Alpaca Pure, and for the contrasting colors I pulled from our palette of Worsted Twist and Worsted Twist Heather merinos.

Together, these yarns create a very cozy hat, perfect for little winterland elves! -Laura Materials MC: Alpaca Pure in the color Heirloom WhiteCC: 1 skein Worsted Twist in the color Ochre Yellow Gauge Sizes Baby (Toddler, Kid) Diagonal Pinstripe Scarf. I've written several books with the words "Last-Minute" in the title, so you can imagine that I occasionally relish the exact opposite! Especially in the depths of winter, I love to sink my teeth into a project whose gratification may not be immediate but whose pleasure is deeply satisfying. My Diagonal Pinstripe Scarf is just that! Not only does this scarf represent a month or two of on-again-off-again knitting, but its pinstripes actually serve as a record of my production. I wanted the stripes to be syncopated and unexpected, but have you ever tried to be intentionally random? It's hard! So instead, I devised a rule that would ensure arbitrary line-placement: If I put the project down for more than eight hours I would start the next knitting session with a stripe.

For a three-season decandently soft scarf, I used our very own Line Weight. For long-term knitting, I almost always choose garter stitch. Materials Gauge 7 1/2 stitches = 1 inch in garter stitch Size Note Pattern Increase Section. Moonstone Wrap. When I was at art school in Chicago one of my favorite escapes was to the Grainger Hall of Gems at the Field Museum of Natural History. Anytime I felt bogged down or stressed out, I would steal away to the gem room and feel instantly calmed in the presence of such incredible beauty. Purl Soho’s gorgeous new Silk Alpaca Alloy transports me back to that time and space.

Every inch of this chunky yarn glows, and like a crystal, Silk Alpaca Alloy is a marvel of construction with a glimmering silk net delicately encasing a fluffy alpaca center. Warm and light with a metallic shimmer and a comforting softness, Silk Alpaca Alloy is as unfathomable as earth’s creations. Knowing I would want to wear this yarn constantly, I used Silk Alpaca Alloy to whip up this Moonstone Wrap in my current favorite shape, the triangle. Materials 3 skeins Purl Soho’s Silk Alpaca Alloy, 60% Baby Alpaca, 40% Mulberry Silk. Gauge 2 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette stitch Size Note Pattern Cast on 135 stitches. Mistake Rib Scarf in Mulberry Merino. There are people and cultures all over the world that not only abide by mistakes in their handcrafts, they cherish them. We love that the Mistake Rib embraces this philosophy.

By the simple "mistake" of casting on one stitch too few, a basic 2 x 2 rib takes on depth and complexity beyond our expectations. To catch the magic of this stitch, we used Purl Soho's new Mulberry Merino. A blend of mulberry silk and extra fine merino, this latest addition to the Purl Soho yarn collection is especially beautiful with its rich color and gentle luster. All this talk brings to mind the old adage, "If you don't make a mistake, you don't make anything!

" Materials 4 skeins of Purl Soho’s Mulberry Merino, 80% extra fine merino and 20% mulberry silk. Note: Each skein yields approximately 20 inches of scarf, so for a 60-inch scarf, you'd only need 3 skeins.
