This is the first piece of clothing I made. I really liked the pattern and found it pretty simple to follow although I didn’t follow it completely. I was really happy with how the blouse came out. The yarn is also very nice and soft, comfort to knit with and to wear. Ideally I should have used this project to learn to swatch and calculate for designing patterns but instead I just knit, tried it on and if it didn’t fit I unraveled and started again. I am really happy with how the blouse came out but this doesn’t help me make clothes for other people because I wouldn’t know how to size it properly.

Allena Silk of Heaven Yarn

I made this to use up some of my stash yarn. It came out pretty well. I made a loop for elastic to avoid any accidents. It came out a little short though.

Maharaja Silk Lace Yarn

Silk Yarn

2 ply / Lace Weight

3 mm Knitting Needles

I made this following a pattern for a dishcloth. I made the neck a bit small but otherwise it’s really nice.

Instructions:

Cast on 4 stitches

Row 1: Knit 4

Row 2: Knit 2, yarn over, knit across the row.

Repeat Row 2 until you have 44 stitches on the needle.

Row 3: Knit 1, Knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to the end of the row.

Repeat Row 3 until you have 4 stitches on the needle.

You can now either bind off or do a round or single crochet and make a little loop of chain stitches in one corner so you can hang the cloth to dry when you are finished using it.

I made this to help with nursing my baby but it came out really heavy and very hot so didn’t get a chance to use it. May be with the next baby.

Anchor Knitting Cotton Yarn

Cotton Yarn

Thread Weight

3 mm Knitting Needles

I made this to learn entrelac knitting and to use it for nursing since I couldn’t use the other one. This helped quite a bit and I can probably use it during the next pregnancy too.
