I have one more not shown here but I will get a photo of it later. It is a small cord for her angel pendant that I made using my french knitting doll (spool knitter).
Here are the ones I have pictures of:
Using the Manos Del Uruguay Maxima, colorway 6411 Valentine
|This Bobble Hat, adapted from a pattern. |
I figured out how to do a seamless decrease and tailored it to fit her head.
I call this the Bobble-Mesh Scarf
Want the Pattern? Why not, it is Christmas.
This was done with Manos Maxima using a 6.0mm hook
I have UK terms as (UK: )
Puff Stitch: Yarn over (YO), put hook through stitch indicated, YO, pull loop through (3 loops on hook) *YO, put hook through same stitch, YO, pull loop through* x2 (7 stitches now on hook, for a bigger puff do it one more time for a total of 9 stitches on hook), YO, pull loop through all but the last loop (2 loops now on hook), YO, pull through the 2 loops.
Sounds complicated but it is easy when you do it.
- Chain even number of stitches until desired LENGTH. Mine was probably 150 stitches for a nice wrap around scarf. (Foundation row)
- Ch-3, puff stitch in last chain from foundation row (4th ch from hook at this moment), ch-1 *skip 1 ch, puff stitch in next ch, ch 1* repeat until end. TURN.
- Ch-3, dc (UK: tr) into ch-space (chsp), ch-1 *dc (UK: tr) in next chsp, ch-1* repeat until end, then dc (UK: tr) into the chsp at the end (the space created by the ch-3 instead of the top stitch of the ch-3). TURN.
- Repeat Step 3 until desired width.
- Repeat Step 2. Finish off and weave in ends. Fringe is optional but looks nice.
Next is the gift made with Manos Del Uruguay Lace, colorway 8597 Ariel:
This is my ALL THE TECHNIQUES I COULD THINK OF Scarf.
|In this one picture is knitting, lace work knitting, |
tunisian crochet (the top and bottom of the picture in the scarf),
filet crochet (the heart), and crochet half-basket weave
(the bottom near the fringe) and fringe. Phew... a lot of techniques.
|This is a one off. You can see the other filet crochet|
that spells "MOM" and that end attached using a mattress
stitch to the knitted scarf.
Do you want the pattern for this? No... I don't blame you. How about the filet crochet? How hard could it be? I will work on that for a later post!
