Sorry for the blog layout that changed so often

Maybe no one noticed, but if you are a regular visitor to this blog, i deeply sorry if you found i changed the blog layout so often lately.. My excuse, i try to find the most eye-friendly's layout but without using plain white background and monochrome color. (I ended up using my self-made background wallpaper which i pulled out from my private photo stash)

I hope you will bear with me if you still see some change to this blog layout in the future.

Recently, I (at last) join Bloglovin too as one of some ways to easier everyone follow my blogs. No exception for this blog. :)

Knitter : Arne & Carlos

Yeah, who didn't know these knitters?

(c) from ArneCarlos blog
I first find Arne and Carlos when i browsed knitting books and find their book, Knitted Dolls. With their doll version of faces as the front cover! (And i love that i had a copy of this book for my knitting's book collection :D )

I suddenly intrigued to find some more about them. And really strange that this time wikipedia didn't help much.

But, what fascinating me is if you search their name at google images, you can see their wonderful works. Exclusive wearable all in intarsia/stranded knitting!

From their blog, you can see they held a mini summer workshop in Norway. Looks like it became annual too.

You can follow them at their Facebook Page. And see their works at their Ravelry page.

Happy Knitting!!

Book Review : Knitting On The Edge

I do not have any knitting stitch patterns guide's book. I only have this book, Knitting on the Edge by Nicky Epstein.

Author = Nicky Epstein
Page = 172
Language = english
Publisher = Sixth and Spring Books

Knitting in written pattern.

It already help me many times!
I always open this whenever i need some inspiration about any knitting pattern when i want make something new without already existing pattern and want to challenge my imagination.

It's written pattern, with instruction to knit in back and forth. Every pattern tell you how many stitch you have to cast on to make one repetition of the pattern. The pictures of knitting pattern's finished sample so beautifully arranged.

Beside, for the book this thick, it come in very affordable price (especially the paperback issue)!
Love it!
Adding the opportunity to everyone can have one copy to their library.

Rajut Free Knitting pattern : Baby Pom-pom Fisherman's Hat

I only tested this pattern once - and it while i wrote it! So please inform me if you find any errata to add :)

This pattern is so simple, even it made me feel guilty to write it, because i wrote the introduction longer than the pattern itself.

Since the gauge measured in stst and we knit in fisherman's rib, i consider that the gauge i wrote not so important for the pattern. I think it will safer to adjust your gauge to the finished size.

Needle             = 5.5 mm SPN
Yarn sugested  = about 80 gr of any lightweight yarn that suitable for the needle. (chunky)
- i used JPS yarn from Poyeng -
Gauge              = 10 cm = 15 sts/22 rows (in stst)
Finished size    = (before folding) 8 inches x 14 inches
 -baby up to 6 months old size after you fold it into a hat-

Fisherman's rib pattern=
Row 1 = [K1,P1] repeat
Row 2 = [K1, YO, Sl1] repeat
Row 3 = [(K2Tog on YO & slip st), YO, Sl1] repeat
Row 4 = Row 3
Repeat last row to end
note = Before you BO, do [(K2Tog on YO & slip st), P1] for 1 row

Picot edging =
[CO 3 sts with any simplest method you know, BO 9 sts, move remain 1 sts from Right Needle to Left Needle] repeat

Pattern =
  • CO = 26 sts (If you want to change the cast on, do it in multiple of two)
  • Do fisherman's rib pattern until 14 inches
  • BO
  • Fold the piece, seam both side.
  • Pick up all stitch along the new hat edge, do picot edging loosely.
  • Add big pom-pom at both top edging.

for the mitten, you can find the free knitting pattern at Spud&Chloe blog
I pick the pattern for the socks from Kristin Spurkland's book

* feel free to comment, you may use this pattern for free, but please read the intellectual property at this blog. thank you :)

Happy Knitting!!
