DIY: Stuff I’ve made

I’ve been busy making things. Let me show you what’s been happening.

This is for my mom. I’m making one for myself too! It’s the Abbi Cardigan on Ravelry, and I made it with Cascade Eco+ yarn. I sized down to 11 needles, and it took about 400 yards of yarn.

Next up, From Norway with Love mittens (it’s free):

I really loved making these. I knit them with Plymouth Select DK Merino Superwash yarn, and I held the yarn double for the wrist. It’s a really nice DK yarn. I highly recommend it.

I have made this a couple of times. It’s Calorimetry (also free!). My sister asked for a second one, so I made this for her birthday.

I made this with Valley Yarns Superwash DK and I held the yarn double. It’s really bouncy. Michelle loved it. If you are new to short rows, this is a great pattern to start with.

I made some knit bangles for my girlfriend Melissa after seeing some on Pinterest that inspired me. I measured the bracelet, did a gauge swatch and then knit it up. I used size 10 needles and did a provisional cast on with 50 stitches. For the ribbed, it’s 2×2 ribbing, and the stockinette is just that. After knitting each bracelet until it was 2″ wide, I wrapped the knitted swatch around the bracelet and wove a yarn needle though one loop from provisional cast on with one live stitch from needle. That was it!

Ok, finally, here are 2 other bracelets I’ve made. The hex nut one is from Honesty…WTF and the Swarovski stretch bracelet was made simply by stringing beads onto stretch cord and tying it up. I love the crystal one. I’ve been wearing it so much.

Thanks for looking!!

      Thanks so much! The sweater is for my Mum – I hope she likes it! I’m making another one for me, too. This time in a different yarn and in my size. I can’t wait to knit it.
