thank you so much for the sweater love . i'm happy that the pockets were liked. if you'd like to try adding pockets to your knits too, here is a photo tutorial of how i've done it. ready? here we go... here is what you'll need to make your pocket(s). i've used contrasting color wool for the inside, but if you'd rather keep to all one color, then disregard the second color. for demonstration purposes i've made a swatch. before cutting into your sweater, i would suggest always making a swatch to practice on first, you'll want to determine where the pocket should be, then find the center on the sweater (swatch). it's easy to just look, but if you like you can add pins to mark the placement
First, I wanted to go over "Multiple of x stitches, plus x". This isn't an abbreviation, however it is frequently seen with stitch patterns. For example, Bee Stitch is worked over a Multiple of 2 stitches, Plus 1. So how many stitches does this mean to cast on?
This stitch pattern calls for a wide cozy wrap scarf. Almost reversible it looks good on both right and wrong sides. Yarn shown in this swatch: Knitca Lovely 100% superwash merino yarn, color 0464 Bronze . Needles: US size 6 (4 mm) . Cast on a multiple of 6 stitches. Add 2 more selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.

I like to draw schematics from an overhead flat shot of the garment.
One of the many jobs that I've done while working on A Stitch in Time 2 is drawing schematics for each of the garments. I thought it might be helpful to do a quick run-down on drawing these, as it seems to be a question that pops up from time to time on designer blogs and in the designer's group on Ravelry . I am using Adobe ® Creative Suite 5 ® (CS5) and my copy of Illustrator ® is version 15.0.0.
Today's post covers refining your outline shape - adding curves and details - as well as adding measurements and aligning. This completes the series on using Illustrator to draw knitwear schematics. The first two posts in this series covered setting up preferences and layers in Illustrator , and drawing basic outline shapes .
How to buy enough yarn using the Wraps Per Inch method Ahhh, you're looking at a fine skein of yarn, and don't yet have a pattern or design. It's on sale, it's calling your name.
I have some good news. And, I have some bad news. Good news first: there is no one right way to weave in your ends. So, chances are, you haven't been doing it wrong!
If you're looking to do some major spring stash cleaning, try making some of these easy ruffles. This tutorial will show you a few easy methods, each resulting with a slightly different look. You can make single ruffles, or get a little daring and add layers of them. Use them as an embellishment, or incorporate them into a simple scarflette to create a look that's uniquely yours.
One of my favorite designs from the new winter collection is Grettir – a unisex Icelandic yoked pullover that I designed late last summer, after returning from my first-ever trip to beautiful Iceland.
