Leaf and Knit

Assalamualaikum!

Well,Β  really, how long I have been away from my blog yea? but still, I would like to say thank you, to you who always hop by here.

I just wanted to share this pattern. Looks complicated to knit but yet, very easy πŸ™‚ I’ve been lingering on this pattern for quite long, not last week, not last month but since I learn to knit! and that was like 3-4 years ago. Oh Allah, why didn’t I start this at the first place? Huh! πŸ™‚

This pattern is written by Smariek. Somehow, I feel like I want to use the same stitch pattern for my next design. It’s already inside my head. I only need to start doing it and write it down soon. Perhaps, I’ll also include it in my first coming book insya Allah πŸ™‚

Please look at the Notes at the end of the pattern before starting.
Using WW cotton yarn and US7 (4.5mm) needles, cast on 32 stitches.

Knit 4 rows border.
Row 1 : B3, K2, P10, K2, P10, K2, B3
Row 2 : B3, P2, K6, /2, YO, K1, YO, P2, YO, K1, YO, 2\, K6, P2, B3
Row 3 : B3, K2, P10, K2, P10, K2, B3
Row 4 : B3, P2, K4, /2, K1, YO, K1, YO, K1, P2, K1, YO, K1, YO, K1, 2\, K4, P2, B3
Row 5 : B3, K2, P10, K2, P10, K2, B3
Row 6 : B3, P2, K2, /2, K2, YO, K1, YO, K2, P2, K2, YO, K1, YO, K2, 2\, K2, P2, B3

Row 8 : B3, P2, /2, K3, YO, K1, YO, K3, P2, K3, YO, K1, YO, K3, 2\, P2, B3

Repeat Rows 1 through 8 three more times.

Work one more row : B3, K2, P10, K2, P10, K2, B3
Knit 4 rows border.
Bind off and weave in ends.

Notes:

B3 = 3 stitch side border of your choice (I used K3 for my border in both cloths above)

SSK = slip one stitch, slip another stitch, knit these two slipped stitches together

/2 = Right slanting (double) decrease as follows: SSK, then slip the NEXT stitch over the stitch just made by moving stitches from needle to needle. —– Viz. Slip 1 stitch. Slip another stitch. Knit these 2 (slipped) stitches together. Move this resulting stitch to the left needle. Now use the right needle to pass the NEXT stitch over it (the stitch you just moved to the left needle). Now slip the stitch back to the right needle. —– See below for further clarification & walk through if this still does not make sense.

2\ = Left slanting (double) decrease as follows: Slip 1 stitch, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over. (This is exactly the same as the SK2TP notation I have used in my other patterns)

MORE at: http://smariek.blogspot.com/2006/11/twin-leaf-lace-cloth.html

This is my first time encountered to these term, /2 and \2. It’s confusing at first, reading and understand won’t help much. You need to read and do it at the same time then it will make sense πŸ™‚ trust me!

By the way,

I would like to take this opportunity to inform our lovely customers that on 1 September 2014, we are officially moving to a new store, located in Central Plaza Kota Kinabalu, 2nd Floor πŸ™‚ Do drop by.

Sadly to say, we are no longer operate in Wisma Muis. Bye bye Muis. You will always be remembered in our heart :'( oh so sad!

Love,
Ery Yusof/ Ery EROGLU

4 hours Daisy Crochet Booties :)

1525101_256672914515199_1123057846_n It was Thursday 27 March 2014 I received a message from a first time customer, asking me if I can make a pair of booties before 30 March 2014. In the meantime, I still have ongoing work in progress that I need to complete as well. I put a deep thought about this before agreed to her request. Not that it was difficult to make but the time limit was not in my favor. However after a long talk and discussion as she looks very determine, so I decide to step in and take out the challenge.

As how I thought! I felt no regret at all. I managed to complete the booties before 30 March 2014 and never have I felt this much satisfied towards my own crocheted booties before as how I felt right now after seeing these cute little booties. What a great match, what a nice shape and how neat it is! Oh yes, I am very proud to see my own progress. Alhamdulillah. As wise man said, practice makes perfect <3

So, a little advice to my crocheter/knitter friends, never ever give up and have confident!

Mission accomplished!

Love handmade,
