MK - oversized-er-er sweater pattern - free -

mystery linen yarn - again

I published yesterday a picture of my latest fatigue (literally) on my knitting machine, the "mystery linen yarn {finally finished} turned into an oversized, overseamed sweater.

This yarn is a B***H ! twists like crazy, so I had to make a pattern with some structure to be able to block it and tame it.

Not very visible on the large picture, but better visible on the detailed pics, the pieces are sewn together using the right side and the wrong side of the fabric, creating an even more detail.

Needles to say, my new favorite - at least, for now.

Patten, expressed in schematics, is on my ravelry page, for free.

machine knitted drawstring camisole

happy birthday, Nadia!

I love Pinterest because I can see what my friends like and make them things, always somehow late, for their birthday!

This was the case with the drawstring camisole from Purl soho, I had a gorgeous tweed linen yarn that I knew would be perfect for this summer camisole.

All info about my machine knitted version are on my ravelry  HERE .

I don't have much information about the yarn, purchased last summer... it's a cone with no name, no tags, ... no nothing. All I know it's linen and it's gorgeous!!

Have fun!

turban and infinity scarf

for the turban:

knit a rectangular (in a reversible stitch)
about 5"-5-1/2" wide x 42" long
wrap, twist and pin over your head
sew it
(instructions on how to perfection the wrap & twist are free on Lion Brand)

for the infinity scarf:

knit a rectangular (same reversible stitch, using bigger needles so will be softer)
about 11" wide x 48" long
fold in half, twisting one edge
sew the edges together
(and infographic on how to fold the infinity scarf is here: on Giuliano & Giusy Marelli FB page)

I used three yarn of different shades of blue, twisted together to obtain the heather/tweed look.
big cone - 2/28 cashmere (2 strands) 
small cone 2/30 cashwool (2 strands)
small cake 2/30 cashwool (2 strands)

The stitch that I picked is a  stitch that I really like, and used in the past already, which is worked all rows in the same way, and it's a perfect "no brainer- for traveling" go to stitch:

Multiple of 3 + 2 selvedges
