Scitchet Knits (and everything else)

This is good. :-) Personally, I ignore the ratings and just read the pattern, but I love his suggestions!

I want to knit a shawl, but all of the patterns I’ve found are for super pretty/lacey/girly designs. Nothing wrong with that, but it’s really not my style.

There’s a tragic lack of “shawl you would wear while fighting an evil dragon” patterns on ravelry.

Have you seen the…

How about The Age of Brass and Steam? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-age-of-brass-and-steam-kerchief

Or the Boneyard Shawl? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/boneyard-shawl

Or Black Death? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/black-death

Good luck and happy knitting!

Oh, I’ve done the Age of Brass and Steam one many times. It has a little bit of lace, but not too much.

That is a good pattern. It is also easy to adapt it for any gauge and change the size.

Have you seen the Danish tie shawl? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/danish-tie-shawl-str01-bindetuch

It was also published in Spin Off.

Basically, you are just doing garter stitch with increases in the middle and on the ends. There is an edging in the pattern that I left out. It makes a nice everyday shawl.

Icon Dress 

This has jumped so high up in my queue, I really need this in my life!

Everything about this is amazing.

I really want to knit a dress.  However, I don’t have the patience for a sweater…

This pattern is absolutely lovely.

This is the second swatch I’m doing for my leafy lacy thing.  I took a bunch of uncharted lace patterns and charted them by hand.  I am then using http://chartgen.orangellous.com/index.php#chart to chart them out into the swatches I want to try.  This will be a hand towel that hangs in the kitchen.

I really like http://chartgen.orangellous.com/index.php#chart  It did everything I wanted.  I highly suggest that if you are doing anything big, that you type it out in a word processing file first and copy and paste it.  The site lets you preview your charts, so you can find whatever mistakes you made (I only made one mistake in 55 stitches and 20 rows) and you can fix them in the file and re-paste them into the site.  The window that you have to work in on the site is small, making it hard to find what you are looking for if it is a big chart.

Edit:  I realized after this posted that I had put in the wrong chart (all of the even numbered rows were backward, I forgot to check the box), but now the correct one is there.  Odd rows read left to right, even row read right to left.

This sweater pattern got scrapped before it was written out because it seemed to colorful for something so big.

I’m thinking of going back to my notes and redoing something with this cozy shape that has a nice stitch pattern instead of stripes, what do all you tmblr knitters think of the cocoon-y shape? Would you wear it in a nice drapey DK weight yarn?

I like the shaping and the stripes.  I also like that it doesn’t butt hug.  It is hard to find a comfy sweater that doesn’t butt hug.

Feather Flame Pattern

Feather Flame is a chevron patterned scarf knit on the bias. It has a scalloped edge and a slight curve that makes it easy to wear. The stitch pattern can be scaled to fit any gauge and yarn weight. Self striping sock yarn gives definition to the waves of the flame stitch pattern.

I love this pattern.  I will be buying it.

The Knitty Ditty: How about a rather "shitty" pattern?!

theknittyditty:

See what I did there?

You’ll Need a tapestry needle and toy stuffing.

Gauge is unimportant, as is yarn weight. I used 2 different shades of brown DK and 5mm/US 8 DPNs

Whatever type of yarn you use, use a needle size smaller for that yarn so the stuffing doesn’t show through.

Cast on 15 stitches, spread across 3 DPNs (5 per needle)

Join in the round, careful not to twist! (Always wanted to say that!)

Knit approx 5 rows, enough for some wiggle room and sew up the bottom hole using cast on tail.

Keep knitting, stuffing as you go, for as long as you want. My poo was 10 or so inches long before decreasing. I wouldn’t suggest any shorter than 10 inches though. The longer the knitting, the bigger the poo!

Decreases:

Row 1: *K2tog, k3* across all needles (12 stitches)
Row 2 and 3: Knit all stitches

Row 4: *K2tog, K2* across all needles (9 stitches)
Row 5 and 6: Knit all stitches

Row 7: *K2tog, K1* across all stitches (6 stitches)
Row 8 and 9: Knit all stitches

Row 10: *K2tog* across all stitches (3 stitches)

cut a long tail. Thread a tapestry needle and slip remaining 3 stitches. Pull stitches closed. tie a small knot then twist your poo into shape. Pull the tapestry needle through to bottom of poo. Make small stitches around to secure the poo and shape it.

Sew the cast on edge so the bottom lays flat.

You now have a decorative poo! You can decorate it with a fly, or a smiley face or even bits of corn if you really want to go there! I’m going to be knitting a fly for my poo!

Happy shitting!

I will be making one for my brother, my husband, my dad, my mom, my nephews…  Do I have enough brown yarn?!?!?!?!
