How about a Christmas present for your movie lover friend? :P
Combination of knitting and crocheting--my original pattern which my friend and ex-roommate V.AY suggested.
I forgot to post it, but I had made an original hat which ended up being (surprisingly) like a ...neck warmer combo. I named it Eggnog (well..Brian named it, actually. I'm really bad with names)
This one got sold, so I made another one--this time in gray, with darker wood beads to give a more 'chic' look. I'm thinking of painting my own beads next time..I just got raw wood beads from another etsy page!So here is the second drawstring hat.
Seems like I'm finally completely breaking off from existing patterns. I'm still battling with sizing and all, but I'm getting there. I'm also trying new stitches too--like this one, linen stitch. Half-knit half-weave kind of stitch, and it seems more 'solid' than regular knits. This time the finger opening and the wrist opening (top/bottom) was a bit bigger/looser than I intended. Next time I will try 2x2rib instead of 1x1..
I'm also thinking of making and selling my original patterns too! ...uh..eventually.
(this book helped me, and is gonna help me sooo much!)
