Row 8: P all sts

(By adding 1 Sts every right side row before and after K2 with yarn over as how Row 7, continue knitting in this manner by increasing 8 Sts on the right side, and purl all stitches on the wrong side, until you get 180 sts as total before dividing for sleeves – As total, you will get 32 rows from cast on.

Dividing for sleeves:
Row 33: K29, move the next 36 stitches for sleeves onto stitch holder, continue knitting 50 sts, again move the next 36 sts for second sleeves onto stitch holder, knit the next last 29 sts.   Turn, Purl all stitches..

 

Body (you will have 108 stitches, 6 waves):

       Number 1:      (K2tog x 3), *[(YO, K1) x 6 times, (K2tog x 6 times)]* continue * to * for 5 times more) until the last 6 stitches, k2tog x 3 times.

Continue knitting no. 1-4 repeatedly until your desired length (or until you have 11-13 ridges), then knit No1, turn, bind off (BO). ***You can also repeat 3-4 one more time if you want the old shale stitch to look a bit bigger.
Sleeves (using Magic Loop Technique) x make 2 ( You may place a marker to point your start at the beginning of your row):
Pick up 1 Sts under armhole, move all 36 Sts to needles, pick up another 1 Sts under armhole, you will have 38 sts as total. Divide 38 Sts into two sections (18-18), knit all stitches using magic loop technique until your desired length or at least about 30 rows. Then, on the last round, PURL all the stitches, then Bind Off. This is to ensure that the sleeve doesn’t roll up. Repeat for second sleeve.

Continue ribbing until you have 8 rows, then bind off. Below is detail instruction.

Berry Kufi a.k.a Kopiah Berry! ~~

Slide1Alhamdulillah.. siap juga akhirnya kopiah pertama designed by me 🙂 Simple tetapi agak menarik bagi saya. Saya namakannya Berry sebab rupanya macam berry pula di mata saya. Apa pendapat anda pula? Saya ambil masa lebih kurang 3 jam lebih untuk menghasilkan design ini termasuk draft pattern-nya sekali. Insya Allah, saya akan tulis pattern ini dengan lengkap secara instruction dan akan dibuka untuk jualan di Ravelry Store saya 🙂

**

Alhamdulillah.. After 3-hours, i finally accomplished my mission to write down the draft of this pattern, designed by me. What do you think? I named it Berry Kufi cause the stitch looks like berry for me 😛 Insya Allah, the pattern will be opened for sale in my Ravelry Store once I properly record the pattern soon. The pattern will be in written instruction, USA terms.

Any comments/suggestions are welcome!

p/s: Model is my youngest brother 🙂

My Flowery Hat – Trial and error.. :)

Alhamdulillah.. after being inspired by lots of flower hats I saw in the internet, I decided to make one for myself.. and yes! I did it 🙂 Simple yet cute i think lol..  Things that really catch my eyes is the flower with 3 layers that I just crochet without a pattern, and can’t believe it worked!

I love the flower.. the blue colour was a good choice and I really think it does makes the combination of the colour look sweet. (Correct me if i am wrong ya!)

I am planning to make more of this. More to baby size so  that I can put more stuffs in the shop hihi.. I am using 4 colours from the Nako Baby Luks Minnos yarns. One thing for sure, I’m going to collect more of these yarns again with bonus of adding more colours in my collection. Besides, plain colours are perfect for designing your own project  and now I understand why knitters/crocheters always prefer plain colours when starting a project. hence..  we will bring more plain colours soon in store, insyaAllah.. may Allah swt make it easier for all of us.. amin amin amin ya rabbal’alamin. <3

Thank you for hopping by!
