I learned lots of stitches ^_^ and ways to knit ^_^
one of it is
- Eye of Patridge
- Kitchenette Stitch
- Improving my ssk and k2tog
Sry if it is not smooth still but at least now I know how to knit a sock ^_^
thank you to www.very pink.com
Did not avail the pattern but I watched how on the YouTube ^_^
Entralac beanie style and Garter stitches with fringe style.
The scarf was the easiest way since it's just knitting and purling. The only problem was the time it will consume for the length but it was the easiest way ^_^
Although the beanie consumes lots of time to make, it was the easiest one. why? Hmm could say that when you got a mistake it is easy to reset it ^_^ unlike the cabled knit it is hard for me to reset...
Time ? I did the beanie In the month of November I guess. I didn't had the full time :(
about the scarf I only made it within 3 days got no time also. I am not sure if I can do it for 1 whole day but it took me 3 days to finish it.
I decided to make my 2nd knitted beanie without looking to any pattern, just an imagination of what it would be...
If I would rate my work could say 7/10 why?
I guess the problem would be my stitch marker and my tension in some other parts of the beanie but that is okay since I'm just a beginner and thru failure I could learn my mistakes ^_^
The other problem was the size of it. Although it was perfectly fit on my head and still got spaces, if ever I got a big head lol well I want my next beanie to bigger than that ^_^ so it would look good on me ^_^
As you can see in the pic I can reverse my beanie ^_^
As for the pattern I am not good with it but I'll try.
1 x 1 ribbing (knit, purl, knit, purl)
for how many rows ? Well you have to decide for it ^_^ I made mine 15rows for ribbing
* knitting 1 row
then purling till what you desire
then knit row again
then ribbing ^_^
Decreasing rows: you need to learn how to decrease... Just search it in YouTube ^_^
As for finishing its up to you what kind of finishing you would like to have ^_^
Sorry if I'm not good yet on giving instruction of my pattern hope to be good but as of now I don't know how to call it...
Sept 29- Oct 4 or 5, 2016
That was the date I had made my First Scarf ^_^.
Lot of mistakes had happened T_T so I needed to reset it. As I told you I am a beginner and till now I do not know to fix a cable mistakes ^_^ anyway maybe I will be there in the near future ^_^. As for the drop stitches well I already knew how and I already applied it here. Why do I make mistakes? I guess I wasn't participating enough on my project. I knitted my scarf while watching a movie hehehe and lots of times I am putting it down and I am not familiar with the pattern at that time ^_^
One or two hours of knitting I guess. Can't fully remember. I also used two yarns of 8ply ^_^
I love the color of her yarn ^^ but its not suited for me. So I choose a brown color for my scarf but it turns out that my yarn has a light color in the end T_T lol.
Good luck Knitting a Scarf ^_^
Thank you "The Casting on Couch"
Knitting is a method to create a textile or fabric. If you want to know more you can go to Wikipedia
Knitting may be done by hand or machine.
For Hand Knitting you will need materials depending on what kind of project you will need.
Basic Type of Stitches
The above stitch is the most important thing to know and it will be the base of what you would like to do with your project ^_^. Although some project will no require it but still you have to know what is knit and what is purl stitches.
Those stitches gave me a headache at first because I was a totally noob and I've got no one to ask.
One of the thing I made through knitting and through following the pattern in youtube ^_^ Pattern is available through the channel of "the Casting on Couch". Consisting of Knitting, Purling and using a Cable needle ^_^ although what I have used for the cable needle is just a wooden type needle.
To know more you can click "here"
As I said before this site will be my reference and maybe somehow some of you will also make this site your own reference.
Some of the images that I will post here may or may not be mine and in that case I will try my best to put the link or the name of the image that I'm using or I used.
I am a newbie and still have to learn many things. That is why one of the reason I have made this blog for me to know what project, pattern, style I am doing or I have done. In case I haven't, I will also try to post it here for reference of my future project ^_^.
Since I was a child I am familiar with crochet hook and I do know how to follow the pattern or instruction or I can also provide a good style of my project. I also watched some animes involving knitting but at that time I really do not know what is the name of it and also there are lots of anime that was involving a grandmother holding a 2 wooden hook that is why I thought only grandmother knows how to do it. I also tried to asked my mom but she also didn't know T_T
10 years ago I have received a present "Beanie" which I love so much and still now I'm trying to know how it was done ^_^ since it was knitted perfectly. Maybe next time I'll try to post it here ^_^
Since then I am so curious on how to do it.
Years have passed and finally this year I have found the answers on my questions ^_^ I searched for knitting needle online and some yarns that I could also buy online. I have tried to get some books.
Although some people would say why buy books if you can learn it online. Well, thats definitely true but still having a book will also tell you more than you will know.
I would love to recommend this book (Knitting KNOW-HOW by Dorothy Ratigan and Judith Durant) as a reference ^_^. It helps me a lot ^_^
Happy knitting and I would also try my best to update this blog ^_^
