Page 18 Elefante The pattern for Elefante is finally here for the taking. This pattern came to be when a knitter emailed me after spying a tiny striped elephant on a shelf in Itty-Bitty Hats on page 18. She wanted to know where to get the pattern. I had no idea where that elephant came from until a friend (thanks Renee) told me about this .

Mack and Mabel: Knitted Flower Tutorial You can crank up the cuteness factor of a simple baby hat in minutes with this quick and easy to make knitted flower. I added one to a hat I made for a friend recently and she said she was forever getting stopped by people asking where she got such a cute hat! I've used it on several of my patterns over on Etsy and they are always good sellers. But you don't need to stop at hats.... add them to cardies, blankets, bags, purses, scarves, mittens... the possibilities are endless. So, let's get started! 5th Row: Knit 1, [cast off (that's bind off in US) 9sts] five times. Cut the yarn, leaving a good length and thread it through the remaining stitches. Still with me? See what I mean... its a teeny, weeny, fiddly little thing that you'll lose down the side of the sofa if you're not careful, but it's gonna make that flower look good! Now, unless you want a very open flower (and that's just fine if you do!) Now you are going to see why I wouldn't let you cut those yarn ends....

Recycle Tutorial – Making Of T-Shirt Yarn Another tutorial to help save our Mother Earth by turning unwanted items into something useful. This is the yarn ball I made out of an old T-shirt which I have been wearing for 10 years day-in day-out, wash-in wash-out. It finally broke down and tore at the collar and sleeves. Waste not, want not, I decided to recycle it. I have finished making the drawstring bag as shown above. {CLICK HERE to get the Recycle Tutorial – Making Of T-Shirt Yarn.} Pages: 1 2 Print / Download PDF Knitting Fool Free knitting stitch library Reversible Stitch Patterns Reversible Stitch PatternsPatterns Box Stitch Multiple of 4 + 2Row 1: k2, *p2, k2*; rep from *Row 2: p2, *k2, p2*; rep from *Row 3: Rep Row 2Row 4: Rep Row 1See Abbreviations Checks & Ridges Multiple of 4 + 2Row 1: KnitRow 2: KnitRow 3: p2, *k2, p2; rep from *Row 4: k2, *p2, k2; rep from * See Abbreviations Close Checks Multiple of 6Rows 1-4: *p3, k3; rep from *Rows 5-8: *k3, p3; rep from * See Abbreviations Condo Stitch Any number of sts for garter or stocking stitch Use any weight yarn and two sizes of needles.

Edge stitches (selvedges) Soooo… you want to be a better knitter? Probably one of the single biggest wholesale improvements you can make to your knitting is: use edge stitches . Unfortunately, this is one of those knitting things that sometimes I hear complaints about: that no one explicitly spells out this for you in a knitting pattern — you’re supposed to somehow just "know" about them, and how to do them. Well, if you really want to be a better knitter, you’ll educate yourself! Read on, sister! Why use edge stitches? Edge stitches, or selvedges, have so many advantages I will probably miss at least one or two — but you are welcome to add anything I miss in the comments. New knitters ask me if one is supposed to "always" use edge sts. Mostly, the advantages of edge stitches far outweigh any potential disadvantages. Advantage #1: Neater edges Edge st techniques are, for the most part, formulated to minimize that "loopy last st" problem — which everyone has, to some degree. Advantage #2: Better finishing
