The ‘How Many…?’ Knitting Tool

The ‘How Many…?’ Knitting Tool
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? Before you rush screaming for the calculator (or even worse, a paper & pencil), try these tools.

Run and Not Grow Weary: Two Color Brioche Stitch Scarf Pattern I have had tons of hits for this scarf, which I first found here. I got the pattern from Borealis Yarns. When I had a request for the pattern I got their permission to post the pattern. If you have access to it, you might want to check out the article in Spring 2005 Interweave Knits on Brioche Stitch. Right, so I didn’t update again for the whole of October, even after I said I would, and I haven’t shared any projects that were knitted after August. What have I been up to then? Knitting! dinosaur heels Talk about walking with dinosaurs! Kick it really (really) old school with a pair of Dinosaur Heels that look just as good touring Jurassic Park as they do strolling down Park Avenue. These prehistoric pump upgrades are fully functional, the standard heel has been replaced with a steel bolt welded to the sole shank, with hollow dinosaur toys to cover up the hardware.

Bee and Buzz: Free Moss Rib Tea Cosy Pattern Tea Cosy in Moss Rib Stitch moss rib stitch which I love and this is the result. To create Moss Rib Stitch CO: multipes of 4sts + 1 sts to desired size do stuff! & Ten minute no-sew recycled t-shirt bag! - StumbleUpon Tutorial time! I got a gig teaching a recycled t-shirt project at the library a few months ago, with a request for a recycled tee bag – the only bags I’d made from tees in the past had required sturdy sewing, and I didn’t want hand-sewing to be the only thing holding the bottom closed in a class version of the bags, so I started brainstorming about some kind of hand-sewing-friendly or no-sew bag idea…. and here’s what I came up with! The simplest version of these bags is great for smaller tees, or the more light-weight kind of girl-tees – just turn the bottom of the shirt into a drawstring and tie it closed! As you can see, even with a not huge tee, this will still leave a significant hole in the bottom of your bag, but for purposes like grocery shopping, this size hole shouldn’t really matter… But to make smaller holes, just make more than one of them!
