Stormy Seas Crochet Triangle Shawl I have been loving making shawls at the moment! And when I came across this colour way in the Caron Big Cakes, I couldn’t resist grabbing it for this triangle shawl crochet pattern. I never thought of myself as a shawl person, but this past winter I loved having one hanging around my reading and crochet chair. Blue Dress Those posts on all the decades were fun, but I felt before I delve into it next week that I would complete a dress I had planned on finishing for the Kids Clothes Week on Elsie Marley (but never did). I used Dana’s tutorial from MADE for the Shirt Dress. I liked it so much that I already have a dress shirt ready to cut up from the thrift store. I didn’t use a shirt, but just cut out some favorite fabric I had.

Knitting Skills: Knitting with Circular Needles Circular needles are a lot of fun to work with. They allow you to make bags and sweaters without seams, as well as other fun projects. But most patterns assume that people know how to work with circular needles, which can be intimidating for people who don't. What Are Circular Needles? Circular knitting needles can be made of most of the materials that straight knitting needles are made of: bamboo, metal, plastic and resin are the most popular materials.

Knitting in the Round with 1 Circular Needle - How to Knit Tutorials from KnitPicks Let’s talk about working a tubular piece of knitting on a single circular needle. You will often hear this technique referred to as knitting in the round. This is an alternative to using 2 straight needles and having to sew a seam, or to using double pointed needles. Some of the benefits of using a single circular needle for round knitting are that you do not have to worry about misplacing one of your needles, you have fewer needle tips to keep track of, no seam to sew, and it is easier to handle a larger tube of knitting such as a sleeve, hat or body of a garment.

Using a bulky yarn, this project works up quickly. The perfect fashion accessory to wear on a cool afternoon walk in your garden! Quick Tip: 1/4" Double-Turn Clean Finished Corner - Sew4Home Finishing the corners when you're making a narrow hem can be a challenge. Making a perfect 90˚ fold at each corner is one option, and often will work just fine. However, it can be tough to keep your raw edges tucked in, and bulky or slippery fabrics can cause you fits. Instead, try our Quick Tip: nine, simple steps to a clean finished corner. This sample was made for a napkin project, but you can use it anytime you need a narrow hemmed corner. Along all edges, turn right side under 1/4" and press well.Turn another 1/4" all around and press well.Unfold both 1/4" turns so your fabric lays flat.

How to knit with one circular Topics on this page: How to knit with a circular needle: in the round Why does my stockinette stitch now look like garter stitch? How to knit with a circular needle: flat How to knit a faux in-the-round swatch Butterfly Shawl Crochet Pattern - Butterfly Ripple Shawl – Crochet Shawl - Free Crochet Pattern - Meladora's Creations This Butterfly Shawl really looks like a Butterfly! If I only knew that this Yarn Cake was going to crochet out like this, I would have used it much earlier! Wow the colors of this Yarn Cake really gives it more of that Butterfly look and feel. Don’t you think? The idea behind this design was from the fact that I like ripple stitches and I thought it would be awesome to have a Butterfly Shawl using smaller more defined ripples,but it kept changing the shape of the shawl to much away from a Butterfly, so I scraped it. Then I thought maybe I could use the stitches themselves to make it look like a ripple without actually changing the shape and this is what I came up with.
