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. I had kinda forgotten this, because what I don't love is wearing colours – maybe I should stop knitting for myself? Socks don't count, of course. 2. 3.

nupp, nupp, nupp | pepperknit The Swallowtail Shawl is done! And I wore her to work today (to many wonderful compliments). Pattern: Swallowtail ShawlSource: Interweave KnitsYarn: Shelridge Farm “Soft Touch Lace,” 100% wool, 2-ply laceweightColor: MandarinSkeins: Less than 1; a skein is 500 yardsNeedles: Addi Turbo size 5 circ, then a size 8, then a size 10Preblocking size: 34″ wide by 16″ high at the tipPostblocking size: 54″ wide by 22″ high at the tipStarted: Thursday, May 17 (evening)Finished: Monday, May 28 (evening) Modifications: I chose to make the shawl larger, increasing the number of center back motif (“Budding Lace”) repeats. Now, what I didn’t pay attention to was that the Peaked Edging repeat is 8 stitches wide. Note that the pattern says, “The shawl can be made larger by working it with fingering, sport, or worsted-weight yarn on larger needles.” I’m really happy with the modified size. Now, my decrease modifications. The other decrease modification I made was to the “sk2p” (sl1 kwise, k2tog, psso).

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:

Hema-breiboeken In de jaren zeventig en tachtig van de vorige eeuw waren de Hema-breiboeken razend populair. Eén keer per jaar werd het winter-breiboek uitgegeven door de Hema en later volgden ook de zomer-edities. Binnen de kortste keren waren de boeken na verschijnen uitverkocht. Eind jaren zeventig bereikte de oplage van het breiboek een recordhoogte van 250.000. Zelf truien breien werd nog populairder dan het was. Het modebeeld verschoof en het breiboek hield uiteindelijk op te bestaan. In 2011 heeft de Hema de draad weer opgepakt. Veel breiplezier!! >> Wie op Patronen in de linker zijbalk klikt krijgt een overzicht van de geplaatste patronen.

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.
