Technickety: How to unvent a simple cable I had a heap of messages asking where the cable for Jeff's glove came from. It's a fairly generic multi-strand cable; called a "Saxon Braid" (thanks, Purly White!). I see Wendy at wendyknits has used it for a sweater, and I'm sure it's to be found in stitch dictionaries. That said, being able to read an existing cable and knowing how to reconstruct it is a very useful skill. I'm not suggesting, of course, that the following be used in any way that takes credit away from a designer of a garment - rather, this is a reference for understanding how a simple cable works and how to write a chart. ***I should say my intention here isn't to be patronizing at all; I'm sure most of you have been doing this for a long time without this kind of manic detail. According to my definition, a "simple cable": Step by step 2) Identify how many "strands" make up the cable - it might be helpful to draw a line diagram showing the relationships between the strands. See? And there you have it.

How to Cable Without a Cable Needle November 7th, 2011 by Jess Now that you’ve learned to use a cable needle, what do you do if you want to start a cabled project and don’t have a cable needle on hand? Don’t fret; you can cross your stitches without using a separate needle! Here’s how to do it. Now, a few notes on this technique. Crochet DROPS Easter chicken in "Paris" DROPS PARIS UNI COLOUR (50g) 3.35 USD DROPS 152-155 are now available in the stores for $2 per catalog – no yarn purchase required!

CROCHET INFO: MAGIC CIRCLE: When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE: After last sc on the round, continue to next round with 1 sc in next sc (= first sc on next round). WORKING 2 SC TOG: * Insert hook in next st, get yarn *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook © 1982-2014 DROPS Design A/S.

Hobbes - Amigurumi I've finally decided to write up my Hobbes pattern and instead of selling it I'd like to give it to you for free. The reason he is free is because the creator of Calvin and Hobbes, Bill Watterson did not want to commercialize his work so keeping that in mind Please don't sell this pattern and don't sell the completed work. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I originally made this up for my son because of his love for Hobbes (he's 23 now) I armed myself with Watterson's brilliant drawings as a reference. I made this pattern to look as close as possible to the Hobbes' drawings . I realized that Hobbes could be broken down into basic shapes. He also had the muzzle of a cat so I looked to the famous Amineko cat. Once I got the shapes down I worked on size. Until I started making him I never realized how different Hobbes looks from a regular cat. His head and body are a lot longer thanan normal cat plus he has the shortest fattest legs. That caused me problems since tubular legs and arms don't want to bend. Resources:

untitled In my opinion moose is the ultimate Christmas animal, so I thought of making one this season. Unlike most of my other projects that are knitted this toy is crocheted. Crocheting seemed like a logical way of making it since most amigurumi-type toys are crocheted. Yarn and Crochet I had a few skeins of really bulky Gianna yarn (50% soysilk, 50% wool) which would have been perfect for a throw had I about 20 of them. 1 skein of dark brown yarn for antlers and feet (100g/83m)4 skeins of light brown yarn for head, body, and legs (100g/83m)Crochet size 9 (I) Pattern There really is only one type of stitch used for making this moose – a single crochet. Process Feel free to start with any body part that appeals to you. Antlers and Ears Ears are the easiest thing to make: chain 6, turn, and single crochet (sc) 5 remaining stitches. Antlers (work in dark brown) Stuff the antler with stuffing like poly-down (while the hole is still big enough) Round 12 (reduce 4): [skip 1, sc1] 4 times Head Stuff the head.
