By Sheila So, you have a favorite eyeshadow, pressed powder, or blush you absolutely cannot live without. Life happens, and sometimes before you even realize it, you find yourself the owner of your favorite product, smashed into 5 million little pieces. When your powder cosmetics are broken into 5 million pieces, you can always put them in a small container and use as a loose shadow, but you DO have the option of fixing the products so it’s almost as good as new.
This tutorial is an old one of mine that’s too good not to share again. Since posting the first time, I’ve had lots of questions about these buttons which will hopefully be answered in this revised post. Equipment Some handy notes:
Click to zoom Foundation ring: Using A, ch 8, join with ss to form a ring. Round 1 (RS): Ch 4 (counts as first tr), 5 tr into ring, ch 3, [6 tr in ring, ch 3] 3 times, join with ss to top of beg ch-4. (24 tr and 4 ch-3 sp) Round 2: Work beg 5-tr cl, ch 5, skip next ch, ss in next ch, ch 5, * work 6-tr cl, ch 5, skip next ch, ss in next ch, ch 5; rep from * twice more, join with ss to top of beg 5-tr. (4 cl) Fasten off A. Join B with ss at top of any cluster.
Braiding adds another dimension to an otherwise very simple pattern. Choose a soft yarn -- it will follow the curves of the braid better than a stiffer one. Size Width: 4" (10cm)
To knit one pair of fingerless gloves, you will need the following supplies: 1 pair size 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles. (Size 8 will also work) 1 skein Worsted Weight yarn, any color. 1 tapestry needle All these supplies are available in the U.S. at JoAnn Fabrics stores and Michaels Craft stores. Total cost probably will not exceed $10.
If I want to decrease 14 stitches over 6 inches - how many rows should I work between decreases? My pattern needs me to increase 13 stitches evenly over a row - how often do I increase? I want to knit something 13 inches wide - how many stitches do I cast on? I want to knit a piece 22.5 inches long - how many rows do I work?
