The Incredible, Custom-fit Raglan Sweater

The Incredible, Custom-fit Raglan Sweater
A simple, fill-in-the-blanks method for making the incredible, custom-fit raglan--the sweater that is knit from the neck down in one piece, to fit anybody! By Pamela Costello, St. Paul, Minnesota Introduction The incredible, custom-fit raglan is a sweater knit from the neck down in a single piece on circular needles, and it can be made to fit any size from infant to adult. This form of raglan sweater is not my original idea. This worksheet will take you through the steps required to design and knit the custom-fit raglan. Materials The materials needed to design and knit this sweater are: What kind of yarn? This is your sweater, so choose any yarn you darn well please! How much yarn? It is impossible to calculate in advance the exact amount of yarn needed. This chart also gives approximations of the raglan measurements for each standard size. Measurements The following measurements are needed: Neck-size:_______ (measure snugly around the neck, or use an appropriate man's collar size) Casting on Related:  Things to MakeHobby : Knitting Supplies, Knitting Yarn, Books, Patterns, Needles & Accessories WIP Insanity: Ribbing in double knitting, part 2 This is the continuation of Ribbing in double knitting, part 1, which is itself sort of a sequel to About double knitting. In this blog entry, I'm going to cover the four ways to do ribbing in double knitting that I discussed last time, with pictures showing you what each type looks like. Before we begin, though, I need to define my terms. Obviously, because double knitting is reversible, there really is no such thing as a "right side" and a "wrong side" of the work. The instructions for how to do knits and purls are presented in table form. So if, for example, you wanted to do K2-P2 ribbing, first, you would choose which of the four types of double knitted ribbing you want to do, and then on the right side, follow the instructions for a knit stitch of that type twice, then follow the instructions for a purl stitch of that type twice. One colour on each side, with the two layers ribbing in opposite directions from each other right side: wrong side: both sides look like this:

nitsirk Tuto : un pull en bottom up et Grafting - Le blog de Systemeb Voici un tuto pour faire des pulls ou des gilets en bottum up. ( il s'agit d'une version remise partiellement à jour car j'ai perdu les photos et je fais les tutoriels en fonction des ouvrages que je tricote. Je remplis donc les photos manquantes au fur et à mesure. Merci donc de votre patience ) En terme clair, c'est tricoter un pull en rond, sans couture, de bas en haut en y ajoutant les manches, pour finir vers le col. Il existe des modèles qui se tricotent directement comme cela mais vous pouvez tout aussi créer un modèle personnel ou adapter un modèle existant Voici donc le principe : On tricote d'abord le devant et le dos ensembles. Arrivé à l'emmanchure, on met en attente et on va prendre une nouvelle pelote, remonter des mailles et tricoter les manches en partant là aussi du bas. Ceci revient à avoir 3 tubes avec les mailles du haut en attente. Il faut ensuite remettre les 3 tubes sur une seule aiguille circulaire avant de tricoter le haut Voici de plus près Voici le trou initial

Love is actually all around Cowl : Knitty Winter 2012 Tubular Cast On Hold two needles together. Make a slip knot with both yarns and place on the upper needle. This will not count as a stitch.

Tubular Bind Off Using two needles, separate the front and back sides of the fabric as follows: [Slip k st to needle 1, slip p st to needle 2] around. Using MC, purl one round on just the back side fabric (the sts on needle 2). Cut MC and weave in end between fabrics.

My So Called Life And Other Lies Faire sa dentellière : Tuto pour des châles au tricot avec (ou sans) dentelle - Le blog de systemeb 15 janvier 2012 7 15 /01 /janvier /2012 10:08 Il m'a semblé utile de faire un petit récapitulatif de ce que je sais sur les châles. Je vais essayer d'être très simple et claire sur les différentes étapes et je vous donnerais mes petits trucs. Les photos sont ceux de mes châles sauf lorsque je le précise Plusieurs étapes sont nécessaires pour bien comprendre : Comprendre comment se tricotent la plupart des châles ? La plupart des châles sont triangulaires mais ne se tricotent pas tous de la même manière On appelle le haut du châle la partie la plus large ( celle qui se pose sur les épaules ) et le bas du châle la pointe châle Haruni d'Emily Ross, en angalis sur ravelry, là : link modèle traduit en français par Christine73, là : link Si vous observez bien le châle vous voyez qu'il est symétrique, le long d'une ligne verticale centrale. Ainsi on tricote à partir d'un petit nombre de mailles depuis la nuque. si on tricote 6 rangs, on relèvera 3 mailles, cela en fera 9m sur l'aiguille pour débuter

Cap Sleeve Lattice Top | Purl Soho - Create I can remember lying for hours under the pergola in my grandmother’s yard. In the fall I’d watch the grid-like shadows shift across the grass as the sun moved across the sky. And in the spring I’d stare up, tracking the path of the vines weaving in and out of the lattice work structure. Empty or abundant, I loved the woven wood overhead. My fondness towards this geometric patterning does not stop at the garden wall. It carries over to painted kitchen floors, pie crusts and, as you see here, knits! I made this Cap Sleeve Lattice Top with one of our newest (and most favorite!) Watching the sparce grid of the pergola become overrun with wisteria and roses was a sure sign of the hot summer days to come. For the main color: 2 (2, 3) skeins of Madeline Tosh’s Sport, 100% superwash merino wool. Gauge 6 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette stitch on larger needles Sizes Small (Medium, Large) Note To alter the size be sure to cast on an odd number that is a multiple of 3 plus 1.
