Blooming Flower Cushion Here is my tutorial showing how to construct this wonderful layered flower and then make it into a Blooming Flower cushion/pillow. First of all I would like to say that this pattern is not my own. I found it via Two Butterflies blog. In this blog post, Jennifer shows her own creation and gives a link to the original pattern which is actually a vintage potholder design from the 1940's. The original pattern is short and sweet and written in US terms. The directions re how to increase in each round are vague and took me a fair amount of trial and error before I got it sussed.
There were two ideas for this mat. First, an extention of the flower in the corner. Second, I was looking at the lace for study website and saw a Bucks point design which used honeycomb rather than Bucks point net as ground, which I liked. This mat is worked a sixth at a time, then rotate the pillow for the next sixth, as usual. Umaro pattern by Jared Flood The Umaro blanket combines a little bit of everything — cables, lace, and knit-purl patterns — to create a veritable symphony of texture that is every bit as soothing to knit as it is inviting to curl up under. Yarnovers and directional decreases grow into and out of staggered cables to form an allover pattern of intricate diamonds, while seed stitch around the blanket and within the geometric motifs serves as a soft and pebbly contrast. With instructions to knit a range of sizes using Arbor, Shelter, or Quarry, Umaro boasts versatile possibilities for decorating your home and for making heirloom pieces for every member of your family.

This is why one of the most amazing gifts any well-wisher can offer a baby or toddler of any age is a stunningly beautiful handmade baby blanket – a genuine one-of-a-kind never to be repeated.

What you’re looking at here is a wholly unique 6 petal puff flower baby blanket, which is less a useful accessory and more a work of art in its own right! Any parent in the world would be blown-away to receive one of these as a gift and any baby would be lucky to have one to snuggle up with.
Matching Thread size and pricking HomePage§Allhallows§Weddings§ThreadsforLace§Painting&Drawing§FamilyHistory§Terry'sPage§Holidays Thread Sizes and Pricking Many lacemakers find it difficult to choose an appropriate thickness thread for a given pattern. Whilst personal preferences as to the closeness or airiness of the finished lace does play a part in the choice of thread thickness, if the lace is to work up well the thread size does need to match the scale of the pricking. A thread which is too thick for a pattern will usually become obvious quite quickly if it is used; the lace will look crowded and any cloth stitch will "twipper".
Jirachi pullover: Knitty Spring+Summer 2013 It is more important to match the designated stitch gauge since this determines the size of the garment. You can adjust the length of the garment by knitting additional or fewer vertical pattern repeats. I recommend using interchangeable needles, or two circular needles, to knit the front and back sections as it makes it easier to join together the front and back sections and start knitting in the round. For the cabled cross over at the end of rnd 21 of Jirachi Chart B, you will hold the last 3 sts of this rnd to the back, remove the marker, knit the first two sts of rnd 22 FOR THIS REP ONLY, purl the last CN st, replace the marker, and knit the remaining CN sts, which become sts 1 and 2 going forward.
page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks. Placeholders special enough for the books that are special enough to remain in your culled-out-of-spacial-necessity collection.
