Ione’s Newborn Baby Hat
pattern graciously donated by Ione M. Hurt, Chippewa Falls, WI.

These should be made in a yarn that will knit up soft. I have used hogartex, sky, star and other baby yarns. Even though it is a yarn that should be knit at about 5-6 or 7, knit it at 8 for stockinet. stitch and 9 for fairisle. This will make it soft as the hospital people do not want a scratchy hat. Symphony is definitely too heavy a yarn. Two strands of 2/24 is ok. Trenzado is a little too heavy, also. Make a couple and you will see what I mean. I use number 276 in stitch world for the tuck hats and start the pattern right after the ribbing. This pattern stretches out nice and will fit even a bigger baby head. Lace makes a cute hat, too. I have finished 51 hats since the seminar (May 4-5). The hat business is good here. Our hospital here sends them to their laundry to be sterilized before sending them to the baby ward. I have been averaging 200 hats a year for 4 years now and this year I have my 200 hats done already,so they will get more this year. It is a fun project for me. If anybody wants more info, you can give them my e-mail if you want boxer@ecol.net.

If you find any small cute stitch patterns that I can use in the fairisle part, let me know. I have lots of them, but get tired of the same ones and like to make something different. I am still looking for a turkey for thanksgiving time. Folks like the holiday ones.

The rib is at T 6 and the body of the hat at T 8, because the hospitals don't want anything too tight on baby's tender head. If your yarn is quite thin or you want a larger hat, use 83 or 85 stitches. Just so you have an odd amount to make sewing up the ribbing look nice.

NEWBORN HAT E-wrap 81 stitches and do 1x1 rib for 7-8-9 rows [depends of how heavy your yarn is, a real thin yarn will need the 9 rows]. Transfer stitches to main bed, add 1 stitch, and at tension 8, knit 49 or 50 rows, ending with the carriage at the left side. [ I usually do 4 or 5 rows of plain knitting and then select needles for fairisle, and turn tension up one more number looser for the fairisle and then back again to regular tension when the fairisle is finished.] After the main part of the hat is done and carriage is now on the left, starting with the second needle on the left, transfer every other stitch to the next needle across the row. Turn tension one whole number tighter and knit 2 rows. Repeat this last line again, leave the tension like it is, you will now have 3 stitches out of work between each needle in work. Your carriage is on the left side now , so take the stitches off on a double eyed needle and gather the top. I pull the yarn tail thru a second time to make it stronger. Make a pom-pom for the top

NEWBORN HAT USING TUCK STITCH

E-wrap 81 stitches and do the 7-8or 9 rows of ribbing like the other hat. Transfer stitches up to main bed and select needles for tuck stitch on the first row. Knit in tuck for 66 rows and then decrease like the other hat. Tuck needs more rows or your hat will be too short.

This pattern could be done in a garter carriage pattern, too. I have made them in stripes,also. Two strands of 2/24 makes a nice hat in just plain stockinette stitch. See what yarn you want to use up and use your imagination.

Easy Puppet

BY LORA KINNAN

Using left over Tamm 3 ply yarn.  Tension 7. 

Row Count 000  E wrap cast on 40 stitches (20 left to 20 right).  Knit 90 rows. 

Carriage On Right, Set hold button.

Place one stitch on the carriage side in hold every row until there are 7 needles still in the “B” position.  Make sure you have knitted one row over these needles as your carriage will be on the left.

Change to red yarn.  Find the needles that are in “E” position and opposite the carriage. Of these needles that are opposite the carriage, push the one that is closest to the carriage  back to “D” position so the latch of the needle just touches the work. Knit one row.  Continue this process of pushing back one needle opposite the carriage but closest to it to “D” position and knitting on row until all needles have been knitting back to “B” and the carriage is on the right. 

Now once again, set the hold button. Place one needle on the carriage side of the work into “E” or hold position every row until there are 7 needles still back in the “B” position. Make sure you have knitted one row over these needles as your carriage will be on the left.  Change back to main color yarn.  Find the needles that are in “E” position and opposite the carriage. Of these needles that are opposite the carriage, push the one that is closest to the carriage  back to “D” position so the latch of the needle just touches the work. Knit one row.  Continue this process of pushing back one needle opposite the carriage but closest to it to “D” position and knitting on row until all needles have been knitting back to “B” and the carriage is on the right. 

Knit 90 rows.  Bind off. Sew side seams. Add embroidered or magic marker eyes and nose.  Best to NOT use buttons as they can come off and be a health hazard for little ones.

Make them out of 2 or 3 strands of 10/2 cotton for bath pals.

Try a tension 7 with 2 strands and tension 10 with 3 strands.

PULL-IT HAT

BY LORA KINNAN

 

Yarn: Tamm 3 ply   Approx. ten 6.. Gauge: 8spi/12rpi.

 

Row Count 000-E wrap cast on 161 stitches on ever other needle 81-80. Knit 50 rows plain.

Row Count 050-Bring remaining needles 81-81 into work position, so that you now have 162 needles in work.  Knit 50 rows plain.  This is the lining of the hat.

Row Count 100-Knit 70 rows of plain stitch.  This is the outside of the hat.  If you have a pattern that you want to use, this is where you want to place it.  No floats will show here.

Row Count 170-Hang Hem on every other needle.  Knit 70 rows plain.  You can continue your pattern here if you want it to go up the entire hat, but the floats will show here.

Row Count 240-Transfer the following stitches onto the needle next to it, to create a hole in the hat-Left 75, 70, 65, 60, 55, 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5, and  Right 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 ,45,50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75. Leave the empty  needles in work  position  so that they will knit on the next carriage pass.  Do Not transferany stitches between  needles L4 and R4.  (You will need this small space to attach the cord for the hat).  Knit 20 rows. Row Count 260-Bind Off.

 

FINISHING-Steam the hat.  I mean really steam it.  It is designed to be flimsy and fall over on the top above the head.  Try  not to widen the hat significantly when steaming it, but make it as long as the yarn will allow.  Next put the two right sides together and seam them right around  to the back.  Once this is done you will knit a cord to tie off the top of the hat.

 

CORD-Knit a standard 3 needle cord (cast on 3 stitches, set carriage to skip in one direction) for  300 rows.  Now without removing the cord from the machine, pickup 3 stitches from the middle, between the holes of the hat. (This is the area you didn’t transfer when making the holes).  Place the 3 stitches on the machine, right on top of the 3 cord stitches.  Make sure these needles are now in “E” position for just one pass.  Knit 300 more rows of cord.  Bind Off. You can then tassel the ends of the cord or hide the ends.  Weave the two ends of the cord separately through the holes you created, toward the right and toward the left, so that the ends meet in the back.  PULL IT together so that the top of the hat closes.

EASY WINTER SCARF

BY Lora Kinnan

This is the one we make for the schools and businesses

 

This is a doubled over scarf to keep you warm in the coldest weather.

The yarn we prefer to use is TAMM Trenzi  yarn knitted at a tension 7.  If you need a lighter weight scarf  Millor Trenzado would work well.

E wrap cast on from needle L 50 to Needle R51, leaving needle # R 1 out of work.

Knit 800 rows, marking every 100th row with a colored thread on the end needles (L50 + R51). Bind off. 

Finishing

Fold in half. (The fold line is the line created from leaving needle # R1 out of work).

With right sides together, bind, sew or otherwise attach the two outside edges together matching the colored threads every 100 rows.  [Use your sewing machine and make it easy on yourself.  Just remember to have as little pressure as possible on the presser foot.]

Fringe both ends.      

Told you it was easy.~Lora

 

 

EASY WINTER SCARF IN FULL NEEDLE RIB

 

Bramwell Duo Magic or Millor Infanta

Cast on in full needle rib from Left 35 to Right 35.

FOR THE PERFECT LOOKING RIBBING

By Lora Kinnan

 

Set needles to be used into work position on both the ribber and the main bed.

Turn tension on both carriages to 0/0

 

Carriages on the right (COR).  Place ravel cord into the carriage and knit 1 row to the left.

 

Carriage on left(COL).  Hang your ribber cast on comb and weights.  Separate the ribber carriage from the  main bed carriage and move it across the ribber bed to the right and back again to the left.  The purpose here is to drop the ribber stitches off the machine.

 

COL. Connect the two carriages and using your main yarn knit one row

to the right forming the ribbing VVVVVVVV stitches.  Check your

book for a guide as to the tensions to use for your yarn. 

 

COR. Knit 2 circular rows.  (setting opposite part buttons on the main

bed and the ribber).

 

COR.  Begin ribbing and knit garment as usual.

 

When ribbing is done and you are going to transfer the ribber stitches to the main bed, lay a second piece of ravel cord across the knitting.  You want to place it in between the main bed gate pegs and the ribber bed gate pegs.  (This is where the cast on comb wire lays when you first put the comb onto the knitting.).  Transfer the stitches from the ribber to the main bed.  These stitches will enclose the second piece of ravel cord.

Remove cast on combs and wires but not the ravel cord.

 

Finishing:

Push the ribbing together using the ravel cord to do so.

 Very gently steam, and let dry...This is what makes the difference.

Remove the ravel cord.

CHERRY’S SURVIVORS HAT

by Lora Kinnan

This pattern is written in honor of Cheryl D. Weekley, who is a cherished friend, fellow knitter and a cancer survivor.  This pattern is free to all who request it and may be copied at will. Please leave this header on any and all copies of the pattern.  The hat itself isn't beautiful but it is functional.  Cherry said that it was great to wear.  This pattern and or the hats knitted from it are not to be used for profit or for sale. Freely you receive, freely give. Thank you Lora Kinnan/Daisy Knits

 Use a yarn that washes easily. Mary Lue's Symphony works well knit at about a tension 8.  6/2 cotton is great. Don't worry about a swatch. Just choose a yarn that knits up around 7 stitches and 10 rows to the inch. This isn't brain surgery so just come close. 
Scrap on with waste yarn from L15 to R 15. Knit about 6 rows in waste. Knit 1 row of ravel cord.  Reset your row counter to 000. Make sure your carriage is on the right  (COR).

TOP OF CAP
Row count 000 (RC)-Using main yarn knit 2 rows.

***RC 002-begin short rowing by setting your machine to hold.  Put needles # L15,14,13, and 12 into hold position (E on brother, D on studio). Knit 1 row.  Carriage on Left (COL).  Place Left needle #11 into hold. Knit 1 row.  COR
Place Left needles #10,9,8 and 7 into hold.  Knit 1 row.   COL
Place Left needle #6 into hold. Knit 1 row.  COR
Place Left needles #5,4,3 and 2 into hold.  Knit 1 row.  COL
Place Left needle #1 into hold. Knit 1.  COR
Place Right needles #1,2,3,and 4 into hold.  Knit 1 row. COL
Place Right needle #5 into hold.  Knit 1 row. COR
Place Right needles #6,7,8,and 9 into hold.  Knit 1 row. COL
Place Right needle #10 into hold.  Knit 1 row. COR
Remove hold button and knit 2 rows across all of the needles.***

Repeat  from *** to *** 5 more times and mark needle # 15 right. This is section 1
Repeat  from *** to *** 6 more times and mark needle # 15 right. This is section 2
Repeat  from *** to *** 6 more times and mark needle # 15 right. This is section 3
Repeat  from *** to *** 6 more times.  This is section 4.

You should now have 24 repeats of the short row pattern completed.  Remove on scrap yarn or garter bar. 

Here is how to put the two ends of this piece together so it goes around the head:  
Turn this piece upside down and place the first row of the main color yarn back on the machine L15-R15, with the right side facing you. (This is right next to the ravel cord).  You will have 1/2 stitch to few because you are turning the work upside down.  Just lay the 1/2 stitch yarn over the farthest right needle. 
Now  hold the scrapped off end with the wrong side facing you  and place the stitches directly on top of the stitches already on the machine.  (Right sides will be together).  Bind off these stitches. Gather the top hole together with a piece of yarn sewn through.  Set aside.

 


CHERRY’S SURVIVORS HAT
PAGE 2 

 

SIDES AND BRIM  In main yarn e wrap cast on from needle L#70-R70 Knit 20 rows of stockingnet stitch. 
RC 20-drop every other needle down on the ribber bed.  Turn tension down by 2 whole numbers or 6 clicks.  Knit 24 rows of rib.

You  can use a garter carriage for this part  by going down 2 whole tensions and  Knitting 28 rows.  You can also use a  mock rib on every other  needle for 24 rows. 

Transfer ribber stitches back to main bed.  Knit 20 rows plain stockingnet.
Remove on waste yarn or garter bar and turn this band piece over (not upside down) so that the right side is facing you and place back on the machine on L#70-R70.

FINISHING
Attaching the top to the band.
Take the top of the hat with the wrong side facing you.  Using your three prong tool, pick up the edge by picking up whole stitches (they are on their sides now) and place one section of the top of the hat on needles R36-R70.  There will be more top than there is band.  Just  space it evenly across the section of the band.  Bind this section off.  Don't break the yarn.

Release this section of the hat from the machine by lifting it off the gate pegs and letting it hang.

The rest of the band is still on the machine.  Pick up the next section of the top of the hat .  Place it on needles R1 to R35 spacing it evenly.  Bind off.  Don't break the yarn.

Release this section of the hat from the machine.  Pick up the 3rd section, place on needles #L1-L35 and bind it off and then the 4th section on the remaining needles and bind it off.  Sew the seam.  Let the edge roll.

Double "e-wrap" those stitches for strength. Hold the knit piece with the knit side facing the machine and the wrong side against you.

Pickup the loops of 8 and 21 stitches onto the last and first needle and knit across = picking up each side for each row while knitting the 30rs. Bind off and a pocket finished (It is really not necessary to add the "e" wrap - but provides strength.)

Now finish the cup container and sew seams. Place a paper napkin in last cup.

This is a great camping caddy for paper cups ---- or for club members.

HEAD BAND WITH EAR FLAPS

© Thelma Buckley 12/1991

It is getting to be close to needing these time.

STANDARD MACHINE

Wool - Brown sheep or Bendigo used. == or any Acylic 3 ply.
Brown sheep at T 7. Gauge 8.5 Sts and 10 Rs. = 1"
This makes a tighter band than bulky -and most prefer it.

A measurement is always recommended - == Measure back of heat at neck, around over ear to forehead and then to back of neck again for each band. Divide this into 3 sections. (An 18" headband is 6" each section for normal adult size - child use a T smaller - larger adult a T higher.

For a 18" Headband:
CO 72 (36-36) needles on WY and Ravel Cord.
Place Machine and Carr for any design in Stitch World pattern book fairisle.

Knit 61 Rs including the row that sets-up pattern.

Bind off 11 stitches.on Each side of CARR (Bind off the first side same side of carr K 1 R. Bind off other side)
K 62 Rs "E" wrap to increase for those 11 stitches each side of carr.(same way)

Knit 60 rs. Shut off pattern and set pattern for Stockinette.

Knit 1 Row 1T. Higher.

RC 159 Use Garter Bar or WY to turn to right side facing. Push stitches behind the latches.
Hang sttiches of the WY from CO row, Keep these stitches in front of the latches. Two stitches on each needle one in front of latch - one in back of latch. Hand knit those stitches back . And Bind off with latch tool.
Fold band in half lengh wise - lining up the "U" of the band and mattress stitch around to finish . Give some at the corners.
Note : An avid skier would rather have it done in cotton with a lycra yarn included in the yarn as knitting. Hang lycra with the loosest tension of the tension bar.
If making this for a specific individual I cannot stress enough the idea to make measurements. Because the ski-band stretches. I presume the skier I mentioned above noticed this and preferred the cotton as it gave a bit to his head but did not stretch too much and also did not make him perspire too much.

This pattern has been published in early editions of both Machine Knitters Source and News & Views and sent by this designer.

    "e" wrap cast on from needle #7L to needle #8R on every other needle. Tension 3, knit 10 rows. Hang Hem on empty needles. This is mock rib.

    Tension 6, Knit 6 rows. Put needles #7L to #5R into hold position (E on brother, D on Studio). Set machine to hold. Knit 6 rows on #6R-#8R.

    Hang a hem from the beginning of these six rows on these three needles, [to do this you leave the stitches on the three needles and pick up the three stitches that were there before you knit the six rows and put them on these same needles. So you have two stitches on each of these 3 needles].

    Carriage on the right (COR). Remove the hold button. Knit 11 rows across all 15 needles. Transfer every other stitch to the needle next to it. [#6 left onto #5 left, #4 left onto #3 left, #2 left onto #1 left, #1 right onto #2 right, #3 R onto #4 R , #5 R onto #6 R, #7 R onto #8 R].

    Knit 1 row. Break yarn leaving a 12 inch piece. Thread yarn needle and gather off pulling the stitches together tightly. Sew side seam. Hide ends.

    TEENY TINY HAT-make 1.

    "e" wrap cast on from needle #13 Left to #14 right on every other needle. Tension 3, Knit 4 rows. Hang a hem onto empty needles. Tension 8, on all needles #13L-#14R, knit 13 rows.

    Transfer every other stitch to every other needle. #12 left to #11 left etc. Knit one row. Break yarn leaving about 12 inches of tail. Use this to gather off pulling the stitches together tightly. Sew side seam. Hide ends.

    FINISHING Thread a needle using a piece of yarn about 10 inches long. Go into the hat from the bottom (the mock rib end) and up through the little hole at the top of the hat (the hole you would cover with a pom pom.) Then go over one of the stitches up there and come back down through the inside of the hat. The idea is to have both ends of this piece of yarn hanging out at the bottom of the hat. Attach the each mitten to one end of the yarn. Put a store bought pin on the back of the hat and a little pom pom on the top.

    HINT- give one of these to your favorite high school student done in their school colors and be prepared to make many more.

    PATRIOTIC DOOR HANG converted for machine Knit from Knitter's Digest hand knitting magazine July 2001.  Door hang is about 8"X8" with streamers about 10 " - Dowel about 11" and a twist of yarn for hang.   5 pointed Stars (3" from top point to middle of two points at bottom) are cut of wood and painted white a small hole is drilled at the base of top point (just above where it joins at the center). Nylon Thread is used doubled to put into the hole and attach as a "V" over the star point and tied in back. Recommend to use at end of each streamer and see note #1 below.


    Machine Standard ---- Yarn is 3/15 or two strands of 2/17 acrylic. Tension 7
    Colors are MC royal blue and CC white in Fairisle Streamers - 2 White and 2 Red.

    A twist of yarn is made of all 3 colors as thick as desired and tied to dowel each end for hanging.
    CO with WY.and ravel cord.C. 60 stitches (30-30) .Knit the programming row in T 9. Change to T 7 Knit in Fairisle of flag (see Gini Woodward's diskette for Holiday Wind Socks.) For 88 Rs, then 1 R T 10. Chg to T 7 K RC to 177. This makes it double in length (16" - with a turning row of T 10 = RC 89.

    Take off onto a garter bar to turn. After hanging the G. Bar stitches hang the streamers across filling in and leaving 2 stitches between each streamer. Hang the CO row and hand knit together. Take off WY and ravel cord.. Latch off machine. Stuff with a square of batting cut 8X8 inches. A dowel can be placed under this bind off before seaming the sides together. Twist is tied onto the dowel for hanging.

    (I made my streamers first) Make 4 streamers -- about 10 " each. Sample done with design Stitchworld III book # 45 using 2 color G. Carriage = but same color in each of holes of 2-color G carriage.. FNR can be used also with ribber. CO double "e" Wrap 14 Sts. Knit to RC 100 If FNR is being used = place 14 stitches on MB and 13 on Ribber. Knit to RC 100 Transfer stitches from ribber to main bed and latch off.

    Note #1. Magazine mentioned above does not use a fairisle design, If this is your choice just use two stars in the center of the door hang (made of felt or wood).

    Note #2 - after the 89th row, use variation button for upside down before knitting the rest of RC.

    To make a perfect 5 pointed star - go to <www/ushistory.org/betsy/flagstar> Also see how Betsy Ross overruled George Washington's suggestion of a 6 pointed star because he said it easier to make. She proved her points!!!

    LACE BABY BONNET
    BY LORA KINNAN

    Preferred Yarn. Tamm 3 ply or any that gets 7 stitches and 12 rows per inch.

    Row Count 000- e wrap cast on every other needle from 38 left to 37 right for a small and 50 left to 49 right for a large. All large directions will be given in parenthesis.
    With weaving brushes in the WT position knit 10 rows.

    RC010-bring remaining in-between needles from 38 left to 38 right (50 left to 50 right) into work so that you are working on all of the needles from 38L-38R (50L-50R). Knits 12 rows on these needles (12 rows) . Hang a hem on every other needle. Put on cast on comb and 2 claw weights. Knit 2 rows (2 rows).

    RC024-reset row counter to 000. Carriage is on the right.

    RC000-read your favorite lace pattern using you lace carriage. Knit to RC60 {5 inches} for small, RC86 {7 inches).

    RC060-(86)-transfer every other stitch onto the needle next to it, leaving the empty needle out of work. You should have only every other needle in work and those needles that are in work have two stitches each on them. Knit one row. Place scrap yarn in the feeder and knit 6 rows of scrap yarn onto your hat.

    Remove from the machine. Pick up the last row of main color stitches on the hat and place them back onto the machine on every needle i.e...right next to each other. This will gather your hat together here. Using your main color knit one row and bind off.

    Finishing:  With the wrong side of the hat facing you re hang the sides of the hat onto the machine(do not hang front picot hem). The left side of the hat goes on needles 35-1 Left (50-1 Left) and the right side of the hat goes on needles 1-35 Right (1-50 Right). Pull every other needle out into the "E" position. Push in your part buttons on the carriage. Knit 1 row. {This is a marker row so that you can more easily hang a hem later.) Release the part buttons. Knit 8 rows of stockingnette stitch. Transfer every other stitch to every other needle, leaving the empty needles in work. Knit 6 rows. Hang a hem on every other needle from the marker row knitted earlier. Bind Off.

    You can knit two 3 stitch cords for 150 rows and attach one to each side of the front corners of the hat between the front picot hem and the side picot hem or you can attach a ribbon.

    KITCHEN CURTAINS

    BY LORA KINNAN

    This isn’t a pattern.  It is just a guide to help you determine how to make your own kitchen or other curtains.  I knit my kitchen curtains out of 2 strands of 10/2 cotton.  I chose the 10/2 cotton because it was inexpensive and would wash well.  The curtains were washed frequently in cold water and then hung to dry.  You will have to knit a swatch if you want them to fit the window. You may also need some sew on fabric tape to form the rod pocket.

    Here are some ideas.

    If you are putting just 1 curtain on a window then take the measurement from the width of the window and multiply it times 1 2/3 (1.67)  to 1 3/4  (1.75) depending on how much gathering you want that curtain to do when it is up.  If your window measures 30 inches across then multiply that times 1.67 and knit a piece that is 50 inches wide.  If you want to have a set of curtains that have a middle opening then do the same thing but divide that number in half and knit two panels that are 25 inches each.  If you want more gathers on the rod then multiply by 1.75. This is just a guide.  You may want to do something else.

    If you swatch measures 7 stitches and 10 rows per inch then you would need 175 stitches to knit one 25 inch panel of your curtains.

    If you want curtains that are 31 inches long then you will be knitting 310 rows.

    Those 310 rows will be divided into 5 sections.  The hem lining, the hem, the body, the rod area and the top. 

    The hem and hem lining.  The hem can be as long or short as you want it.  An area that is 2 – 4 inches usually looks pretty good.  The hem lining is knit to cover the hem and should be the same length as the hem.  Try casting on and knitting it on every other needle.  Don’t forget that the hem lining covers the hem and is not part of the 31 inches that you need.  So once you knit the hem lining you should turn your row counter back to zero.  Then knit the hem part of the curtain and hang a hem from the beginning of your lining.

    The body.  This is the main part of the curtain.  If using cotton it is a good idea to do a tuck or lace stitch here to help eliminate bias.  The length of the body will be equal to the total length (31 inches) minus the hem, minus the rod area, and minus the top. 

    The rod area.  This is the area where you will slip the rod. Depending on your curtain rods it should be about 1 to 2 inches long.  It is best to knit 2 marker rows at the beginning of this area. Then, knit the rod area and knit 2 more marker rows.  These marker rows will show you where to sew the tape that you buy at the fabric store to make the rod pocket.

    The top.  This area is usually about 2 inches long.  You can finish it by just binding off at the top.  If your curtains roll at the edges you can use some stay tape (either sewn in place or iron on) to firm up the edges.

    BUTTON HOLE DIRECTIONS

     

     

    BUTTON HOLE -If you have never done a button hole or if you just need practice this is the common method of doing them when you are using the knit side of the fabric as the “public” or right side.  You can try one on scrap first.  

     

    RC 000    Cast on from L10 to R10.     Knit 16 rows.

    Take a piece of contrast color yarn and knit off  3 needles L1, R1, and R2.  [Pull the 3 all the way out into “E” position (brother Knit King)  “D” position (Studio, Singer). Place the contrast yarn in the hook of the needle and move the needles back all together so the latches close over the needles. Now pull each needle back to “B” position so that the contrast yarn is on the needle as a stitch.]   Knit 6 rows.

     

    Look at the area that you knitted off with the contrast yarn.   Find the stitches that that you knit off. They are main color stitches. There are three of them. These we will call these the mountains. 

    Find the area above these stitches that look like little clouds looping down. They  are main color upside-down stitches. We will call these the clouds.

     

    Find needle #L1. Move the needle out so that the stitch on the needle is behind the latch.   Take the first cloud on the left  and put it up onto needle L1. Put the cloud in the hook of the needle. Knit it through. Move that stitch from needle #L1 over to needle #R1. #L1 is empty. There are now 2 stitches on the R1 needle.   Move the needle out so that the 2 stitches on the needle are behind the latch.  

     

    Take the second cloud  and put it up onto needle R1. Put the cloud in the hook of the needle. Knit it through. Move that stitch from needle R1 over to R2.  #R1 is now empty and there are now 2 stitches on #R2. Move the needle out so that the 2 stitches on the needle are behind the latch.  

     

    Take the third cloud  and put it up onto needle R2. Put the cloud in the hook of the needle. Knit it through. Move that stitch from needle R2 over to R3.  #R2 is now empty and there are now 2 stitches on R3. Move the needle out so that the 2 stitches on the needle are behind the latch.  

     

    Take the fourth cloud and put it up on needle #R3. Put the cloud in the hook of the needle. Knit it through.

     

    Now find the mountains. Put the three mountains (stitches) up onto the empty needles.

    Knit 16 rows. Take off the machine. Remove the piece of scrap yarn. You have 3 stitch button hole.

     

    I did not invent this.  This is just my description of it.  Lora Kinnan

    LINED CHRISTMAS SOCK

    BY LORA KINNAN

    Preferred Yarn.  Tamm Trenzi  knitted at tension 7 

    THE LINING- ROW COUNT 000 In red or whatever color you want the main body of the sock to be, e wrap cast on upon every other needle (EON) from 44 left to 43 right.  Weaving brushes in WT position.  Knit 80 rows. 

     

    THE CUFF-Row Count 80-Put the remaining needles from #44 left to #44 right into work, (use every needle 44L-44R).  Change to white yarn.  Knit 40 rows.  The carriage is on the right (COR).  This is the inside of the cuff.

    RC 120 Knit 40 more rows.  This is where you put whatever design you want in the cuff.  It must be upside down. 

    RC160 Hang a hem on every other needle (EON) picking up the hem from where you started the white or cuff yarn.  Make sure your weaving brushes are now in the "N" position. Set the row counter to 000 (RC000).

     

    THE BODY-RC000 Change to red yarn.  Knit 5 rows.

    RC005 Knit to row count 82.  It is in these 77 rows that you can put whatever pattern you want in the main body of the sock.  It must be upside down.  I like to put a little rick racky garland boarder at the beginning and again at the bottom of this section It helps to cover seeing the hung hem on the front.

    RC082 Hang a hem on EON from your e wrap cast on edge.  This will cover any floats from the pattern.  Knit 8 rows in red.

     

    THE HEEL- RC090 Carriage is on the right (COR) Put all needles on the 44-1 left into Hold.("E" position on the brother or Knit King machines, "D" position on the Studio/Singer machines).  Set your carriage to Hold ("H" on brother/kk, Russel levers on Singer/Studio).  Carriage on the left (COL). Put needle #44 right into hold.  Knit 1 row.

    RC091-Find the needles that are still in "B" position.  Of these, put the needle closest to the carriage into hold. (Here it is needle #1 right.) Wrap this needle. Knit 1 row. Each time you knit a row, be sure to hold the material that is under the "B" position needles down with your fingers or the stitches will pop off the needles.

    RC92 Again find the needles that are still in "B" position.  Of these put the needle closest to the carriage into hold (now it is needle #43 right).  Knit 1 row.

    Continue putting one needle on the carriage side of the "B" position needles into hold position and knitting 1 row until there are 15 needles still in "B" #15-29right. Make sure you have knit 1 row across these needles as your carriage is on the leftt.

    Begin to increase this area.  Find the needles that are in the "E" position and opposite the carriage.  Of these needles, find the one that is closest to the carriage.  This will be needle #30R.  Move it back so that the latch of the needle just touches the material on the machine.  Knit 1 row.  Continue this process (the next one is #14R) until all the needles on the right side of the machine (1-44) are in "B" and the carriage is on the right.  The heel is finished.

     

    THE FOOT-Set the row Counter to 000.  Release the hold button.  Knit 57 rows across all needles (44-44). COL

     

    THE TOE-RC57-Put all needles on the right side of the machine (1-44) into Hold.  Set carriage to hold.  Put needle #44 left into hold.  Knit 1 row.

    Find the needles that are still in "B" position.  Of these, put the needle closest to the carriage into hold. (Here it is needle #1 left.)  Continue this until there are 15 needles still in "B" (#15-29left). Make sure you have knit 1 row across these needles as your carriage is on the right.  Begin to increase this area.  Find the needles that are in the "E" position and opposite the carriage.  Of these needles, find the one that is closest to the carriage.  This will be needle #30L.  Move it back so that the latch of the needle just touches the material on the machine.  Knit 1 row.  Continue this process (the next one is #14L) until all the needles on the left side of the machine (44-1) are in "B" and the carriage is on the left (COL).  The toe is finished.

     

    FINISHING-Release the hold button and knit 1 row across all the needles.  Scrap off  (knit 4-6 rows of a different color yarn) or garter bar remove from the needles.  Fold in half and place the public sides together so that the stitches 1-44 right are on top of stitches 44-1 left.  Sew or latch tool bind off.  Sew side seam. Put a loop on the sock using a three stitch cord. Try about 40 rows for the loop.

    DOLL DRESS

    BY Lora Kinnan

     

    This pattern is a knock off of one that Uniquely Yours wrote for children.

    This one fits the 18” doll and is meant as a tribute to the Uniquely Yours Gals. 

    Yarn: Bramwell fine 4 ply.  Tension 7 stitches and 11 rows per inch.  Try about tension 7

     Make 2 pieces the same.

     

    Crochet cast on 68 stitches (34L-34R)  Knit one row to the left.   Free pass the carriage to the right. (Pull all needles to the “E” position on Brother or Knit King, “D” position on Silver Reed, Studio, and Artisan.  Set carriage to hold. Knit one row.  Or just take the carriage off the bed and move it to the other side.)

    Do a second  and third row of crochet cast on. .Knit one row to the left. 

     

    Change your Row Count to 000. Knit 81 rows.  (You can put a fairisle pattern in these rows if you want to.)

    Row Count 81.  Bind off 4 stitches on the carriage side.  Knit 1 row.

    Row Count 82.  Bind off 4 stitches on the carriage side.  Knit 1 row.

    Row Count 83.  Transfer every other stitch down onto the ribber for a 1 x 1 rib.

     (If you want to use a garter carriage then set up for a 1 X 1 rib now.)

     

    Rib 40 rows.   Transfer all ribber stitches to the main bed.  Scrap off.  (Knit 6 rows of a contrast color yarn.)  If you used a garter carriage just scrap off. 

     

    Find the top of the ribbing where you just scrapped off.   Use 16 stitches on each side of this scrapped off end as the shoulder stitches.  Use the 28 stitches in the middle as neck stitches.  Decide which piece is the front and which is the back With public sides together join the shoulder stitches of the front and the back.  Fold the neck stitches of the front over to the inside of the garment as if you were creating a facing. Pull the middle of the stitches down about 1 ¼ inch.  Pin them down and then using a separate piece of yarn, tack the stitches down to the garment front.  Do the same with the back., but just turn the stitches down by ½ inch.   Tack these down to the back.  Voila, your done.

     

    For all you crafters, this sells great at craft sales. Get the UY pattern for the little girls jumper and sell them as a matching set.

    ROLLED CABLE V NECK
    by Lora Kinnan

    Note that the number of rows you knit between cabling can vary according to the number of decreases you need to make. Knit the front of the sweater up to one row before you divide the sweater for the neck.  [If you are supposed to knit to row 100 and separate for the V neck, just knit to row count 99].  Then cross needle 1 Left with needle 1 right. Knit 1 row.

    Divide your sweater for the V neck by scrapping off the left side so you are working on the right side needles. Of those needles that you now have in work, move the stitch that is on the 5th needle from the left over to the right  by 1 needle and leave the 5th needle out of work. Knit 6 rows. As you knit the right side of the garment you will be manipulating the right most 9 needles.

    Let's say the you are now working on needles 1Right to 47 Right and needle number 5 right is out of work.  *Cable the second set of 4 stitches. Putting your left hand stitches onto the machine first. (In our example you would do a 2 x 2  cable on needles 6 + 7 and 8 + 9.  You would remove 6 and 7 on a transfer tool, and 8 and 9 on a different transfer tool.  Then 6 and 7 would go onto needles 8 and 9 and those that were on 8 and 9 would go on 6 and 7.  Now,  Move these 4 cabled stitches over to the right 1 needle each.  You should now have needle 5 and 6 empty.  Move the first 4 stitches on the left over by 1 needle each. [Stitches on needles 1 through 4 would move over onto needles 2 through 5].  Needle number 6 should now be empty.   Knit 6 rows or the number of rows that you are supposed to knit to your next neck decrease. *

    Repeat from * to * until you are done with your sweater.
