Mustaa villaa: Three reasons to love Garter Stripe Beanies Three reasons to love Garter Stripe Beanies 1. The colours.I really, really love knitting with colours.

How to Get a Straighter Seam Working HDC in the Round | Charmed By Ewe When making a hat my preferred stitch is the half double crochet; the only problem with working hdc in the round is the running or diagonal seam that is created when rounds are joined. I’ve been playing around with stitch placement on the last few hats I’ve made and I think the resulting straighter seam is much neater looking. *NOTE* – The method described below will only work if the starting chain of each round does not count as a stitch. I have written up a Basic HDC Beanie pattern specifically for this technique that can be found HERE. There are two steps to getting a straighter seam on a crochet HDC hat. {make 2 hdc in first stitch, hdc in next stitch} repeat around Since the HDC naturally slants to the right, working increases at the beginning of the set is going to accentuate the slant, so you will want to reverse the instructions, placing the increase at the end of the set like this: {hdc in first stitch, make 2 hdc in next stitch} repeat around Here are the 2 rounds to alternate:

Atomic Spectra Scarf Pattern Generator What does it do? Suitable for knitting scarves, beading necklaces, etc, etc. Originally I was going to write something more, but there's not really that much more to say. Tips The human visual range is roughly 3900 to 7500 ångströms. Similarly, to cut down on colour variety, I have not directly modeled line intensity. Catie suggests a good rule of thumb for calculating yarn usage per row is to multiply the width of the scarf by 3, then by two again if it's a tube scarf.

Crochet Curly Cue Sampler - How to Choose the Best Curl As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve been on a bit of a blog break lately. Mostly because I traveled overseas with LM, and came back with a bad case of the jet lags. After that, it’s just taken me a while to get going again, but hopefully, I’ll find my groove in time for spring! This is a quickie post. I started out all of them by crocheting 23 chains. 23 you say? As you can see in the photos above and below, increasing the number of stitches in each chain tightens the curl. Here’s 3 curls in the following order: 2 single crochet in each chain across, 2 hdc in each chain across, 2 dc in each chain across. This set below is: 3 sc in each ch across, 3 hdc in each ch across and 3 dc in each ch across. And following the same pattern, below is: 4 sc in each ch across, 4 hdc in each ch across, and 4 dc in each chain across. I honestly don’t remember how long my 23 chains were, but the final curly cues are all in the 4 to 5 inch range, depending on how scrunched up you want them to be.

Digital Resources from the Knitting Reference Library WSA :: Library Richard Rutt is a scholar and former bishop who is widely known for his classic book 'A history of hand knitting', published by Batsford in 1987. Rutt’s library of books, journals, magazines, patterns and cuttings specifically on knitting is held at Winchester School of Art Library. This follows his wish to donate his library to the University of Southampton in order to join it with Montse Stanley’s Knitting Collections as an acknowledgement of their shared interest in knitting and their consequent long standing friendship. A particular distinction and strength of his collection is the range and number of nineteenth century knitting books which commenced publication in the 1830s. In addition, his library includes a comprehensive run of the knitting magazine Stitchcraft dating from the 1930s to the 1980s which richly illustrates the changing graphic image and layout of knitting patterns through the decades of the twentieth century.

Catwoman returns Catwoman returns is a hat for a child, for a head circumference of about 52-56 cm [20-22 in.], leaving room to wear a merino wool balaclava underneath. This is a quick knit: start by making two ear flaps, continue with a seed stitch edge, then work in stockinette stitch until desired length and add ears with short rows, finishing with a three needle bind off.

Bobble Blocks Baby Blanket _ Yarn _ Free Knitting Patterns _ Crochet Patterns _ Yarnspirations.pdf Baby T-topper _ Yarn _ Free Knitting Patterns _ Crochet Patterns _ Yarnspirations.pdf Issue81 The Story: It’s a 3-year tradition now that I knit a sweater for my granddaughter when I begin my cross-country journey home from our January trade show. This year, I used Summer Sox for two reasons: Charlotte loves stripes, and she doesn’t like bulky sweaters (in fact, she’d rather go without any sleeves, summer or winter). I pulled out Ann Budd’s The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns as a starting point. It’s a wonderful guide for sizing and shaping. Because I thought I’d be bored with plain stockinette stitch—even though I knew I’d love watching the self-striping yarn generate bands of colors—I added two little cable panels to the back, and mimicked them on the fronts. The next big decision was how many buttons. The Yarns: Summer Sox 40% cotton, 40% superwash merino, 20% nylon Summer Sox is a great all-season sock yarn, but it’s also good for kid’s garments. In addition to the color shown in the sweater, here are some of our favorite Summer Sox self-striping colors. more photos
