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. Arm Knitting Tutorial - How-To Posted on October 11, 2012 by Maggie in DIY Projects, Knit and Crochet As some of you may know I knit and crochet. I am by no means an advanced knitter, I like to keep it simple so I am just trying to perfect my knit stitch and purl stitch, which if you don’t know are the two most basic knitting stitches.

Hobbes - Amigurumi Patterns.net 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 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.

If I’d listened to her at the time, I would have had both patterns ready at the same time! Instead, I spent the last couple of days knitting one up for her, this time out of some lovely The Plucky Knitter Superwash Merino Worsted in Love Letters, and I dropped it off at her house yesterday.
