StashBuster ideas


#141

Maybe you could contact the designer. Otherrwise you could maybe study the gauge and figure out how many inches the hat is around compared to what a preemie hat would be, and then try to figure out how many stitches that would take.

hmmmm good idea! maybe i can get around to figure it out if i’m not too lazy like usual hehe :teehee:

double knit hat: http://alison.knitsmiths.us/pattern_double_knit_cap.html

alright everyone, your next mission is to find something that is double knit–to eat up all of the yarn!


#144

do you mean knit with two strands at the same time? if so, here is a pattern i have posted somewhere else in this forum that is great:

#145

never mind… yep its double knit :slight_smile:


#146

Using 2 strands at once would be a good way to use up that stuff…of you can just send it to me. :happydance:

LOL!

I just posted something on another post I saw on Edith Eig’s show a while back, it’s on using 2 to make a nice blended look: Adding and Blending

double knitting is basically reversible knitting. amy has a tutorial for it here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/free_patterns/heart-dk-hot-pad.php

so no, that pattern you posted is not double knitted, but its ok its still a good stash-busting project! :cheering: :slight_smile:


#148

oopsie! sorry, my mistake! :doh: hehe but woah! i’ve never heard of knitting doubled before… sounds cool! :slight_smile:

Stash building tips, lol. its almost like u’re asking me how to get fat: just eat. if you want to build you stash, buy yarn. :teehee:

i can relate with the MMmm thing though, i haven’t tried it either. the one skein of alpaca that my swap pal sent me is the only “high-end” yarn i’ve ever used. :shrug:

Skully Keychain

I can’t wait to make these. They are so cute! :wink:


#156

I like those…and skulls normally aren’t my “style”. :heart:


#157

One of those cute cell phone caddies would be cute. I made a simple navy one for my mom with an adorable ladybug button for close. But I like ones with some fun fur on it, etc.

(challenge accepted TJ! )

Here´s a pattern for a stole/shawl that seems to need bits of “embellishment” yarn and another at the same time. Might be good for bits!
