  • Mood:

a newfound love of my journal!

I've started knitting. Legwarmers. And a hat last night. I'm so happy!! Tomorrow (or maybe later today) I'm going to create a bag for keeping/carrying my knitting. Oh JOY! Crafster is just awesome (thanks Davin!) and has many ideas/patterns. OMG...I love the internet!! And I am some day going to have that cheshire kitty hat!!

This is a pattern that I also want to try.
(1 inch is 2.5cm)

Finished length, before sewing: 48 cm
2 needles, size 5
50 grams of Wool compatible with the needle

(This pattern is knit flat, remember of do the opposite on the wrong side. i.e., change the purl to knit and vice versa.)

Cast on 19 stitches

First row: k1, *p2 k2* x 5 times, 3p

Or else: p3 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 + p2 + k1 (=19 st)

Continue until your piece measures 8 centimeters

Increase 1 stitch (k) in each column of knitting:
p1, *p2 k2* x 5 , p2, p1 (=24 st)

When your piece measures 14cm
Increase the knit columns by one: p1, *p2 k3* 5 times, p3 (=29 st)

Continue until your piece measures 18 cm

Again increase the knit portions by 1 stitch:
p1, *p2 k4* x 5, p3 (=34 st)

Continue until your piece measure 21 cm

Increase the knit columns by one: p1 + *p2 k5* x5x, p3 (=39 st)

Continue until your piece measures 24 cm (You are 50% done!)

Place a stitch marker and begin the rest of the piece

Continue in the same pattern for another 3 cm, then decrease the number of knit stitches in each column by one

Continue until you are 6m from the marker, than decrease the number of knit stitches in each column by one.

Continue until you are 10 cm from the marker and decrease the number of knit stitches in each column by one.

Continue until you are 16cm from the marker and then decrease the number of knit stitches by one.

When the piece measures 24 cm from the marker you are done

Sew the two ends together.

(And then by the pictures, it looks like it's worn wrong side out.) And the link to the kitty hat pattern. There shall be pictures when I complete the hat! Hopefully paired with my adorable new eskimo type boots! HURRAH!!
