Knitting Design for Beginners: Designing Knitwear Patterns; Getting Started. Once you can knit, there is nothing to stop you from designing your own simply shaped garments. This is the first part of a series of articles which will show you how. Knitting is maths; knitwear design even more so. This is a thought that often scares people, but nobody who knits need be afraid of the numbers, as all knitters are already counting and measuring as they go. The mathematical side doesn’t have to be difficult or complex, but it is vital. Designing your own patterns is straightforward and satisfying. Equipment Knitting needles (of course)Yarn – do you have enough? A quick way to compare yarn weights is to check their “wraps per inch” (wpi). Other essentials Tape measurePinsCalculator (unless your mental arithmetic is exceptional)Notepad and pen to mark down your measurements, and write your design.

Grocery Bag “Yarn” | When people see the handbags some of us carry around they never believe that we’ve made them from regular grocery bags. I bet I’ve been asked about 65,000 times in the last few years–”How can you possibly crochet with a grocery bag?” Consequently, this story has been told quite a bit, but never here on the blog. So, for those of you who’d like to know—this is how you do it. Take one innocent looking grocery–the thin, noisy kind–and smooth it out flat. Fold it in half lengthwise and smooth out again. Fold in half again, and smooth out. Cut off the bottom seam, and the handles at the top. Fold in half again. Cut the strip into 1 inch pieces… until you’ve cut the whole strip. Open up the loops… Remember making rubberband chains when you were a kid? Well, it’s like that. Pull one loop through the other until… they knot together. -pretty much like yarn. It’s a great way to recycle those silly bags and make our own teeny tiny dent in the local land fill. And now you know the true secret of the universe.

Home Page - Knitting Yarns | Knitting Accessories - Stash Fine Yarns. January 2011 Archives January 31, 2011 A Small Parade The hunt for unfinished things, and the desire to move them to the other category yielded up a few things in the last few days. The urge to tidy the box holding UFO's didn't go away. It's such and unusual feeling that I thought I might recover from it - the same way you get better from a cold, but nope. I looked to the socks first. I know that picture is blurry, but you have no idea what it took to get a good enough shot of my own feet. My Lenores have been sitting on my desk, waiting only for the ends to be woven in for months. They've finally made it into rotation. Next up, the January socks for this year. Pattern: Basic Sock Recipe from Knitting Rules , and the yarn is a discontinued one from the depths. It's Online Supersocke 100 "Sierra Color" #893... That tidy up meant that the only socks around are the cashmere ones... and I've finished one of the pair there. Tomorrow - finishitupitis and the mitten portion of the basket. Then the sweaters.
