So, my circulars came in, and I was REALLY excited to make something, preferably a hat. But every pattern I look up requires DPNs to finish off. Which I don’t have and have never ever tried to use. No matter. I just ordered some. And while I’m waiting for them, I’m going to make THIS cowl. Looks easy, and I love the look!
Meanwhile, I’ve also been working on more crochet lacy fingerless gloves. I love this pattern because its quick and easy, but so elegant and dainty. I thought they’d be perfect for spring, so I’ve been using Springish colors.
Giving up on this one. It’s the Claudia I mentioned in previous posts.
My arms are actually sore from knitting. Is this normal? Hahaha, this never happens with crochet…
Love this pattern, and will definitely be making more!
So, as I said in a previous post, I’m working on a hat, knitted flat: http://smariek.blogspot.com/2006/10/claudia-hat.html
I swear I have followed the directions EXACTLY, but I’m NOT getting the ribbing like it’s supposed to. Instead I just get ziz-zags.
The pattern reads:
Row 1: K3, * P2, K2 *, end with K3
Row 2: P3, * K2, P2 *, end with P3
Row 3: K3, * P2, K2 *, end with K3
Row 4: P3, * K2, P2 *, end with P3
Row 5: K3, * P2, K2 *, end with K3
Row 6: P3, * K2, P2 *, end with P3
And is supposed to look like this:
And I have followed it, no mistakes, and I get this:
The Claudia Hat – Beginner’s Knitting Pattern
While I’m waiting for my circulars to come in, I’m going to practice some new techniques with flat knitting. This hat seem very beginner friendly and it’s such a cute design. I’m going to start on this tomorrow. Tonight I have a terrible spring headache. TERRIBLE. So it’s tylenol and hopefully some reading if my head can stand it.
