Leaf and Knit

Assalamualaikum!

Well,  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 🙂 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! 🙂

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 🙂

1900119_781161761907337_7311140613265278162_nThis is before blocking

10600553_781161721907341_6375594358805935876_nAfter blocking! 🙂 Niceeee….

Now.. let’s have a look on its pattern!

Updated:

Saya ada buat tutorial video ringkas (dimana saya menganggap anda sudah tahu asas knitting) untuk pattern Twin Leaf yang saya kongsikan untuk KAL

Di harap videonya membantu ya insya Allah. Kalau nak cuba, mesti kait sama2 ya.

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 7 : B3, K2, P10, K2, P10, K2, 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 🙂 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 🙂 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,

Attach a button and sew it neatly. Please refer picture below.  (25 sts + 10 chain). After done, weave in any left yarn and tidy it nicely :). Tada! Done!

20140503_104106Final touch (this is an optional)
Usually, crocheting/knitting with acrylic yarns will produce fuzzy on the surface of the project. Sometimes the texture comes out a bit stiff and scratchy. This doesn’t mean your project has ruined. With a little technique, we can turn the project into fabulous handmade. So, what I mostly do:
1. After finish, I’ll use lint remover to remove any hairy that looks annoying to me as much as I can do. It is very impossible to remove them completely unless you do the “Killing Acrylic” method, which, useful only on certain projects. And I don’t suggest that!

20140503_1050212. Since I learnt how to “steam blocking”, most of my project will be blocked with steam iron. Steaming and blocking your project especially for someone like me who use acrylic in most of my project, will help the project to be softer, fluffy, and less fuzzy also, not itchy! However, again, make sure you don’t KILL your project or otherwise, it will turn into your worst nightmare! :O

20140503_105739

At last, after blocking and dry, it’s time to wash!

Don’t hesitate to throw your project in the washing machine cause most of acrylic yarns are best to wash with washing machine. I’ll put them inside the net and pour a little softener. Then dry it using a hanger or just dry them flat on the table. Once dry, you will be amazed to see your project turn out just nice and beautiful.

Last but not least, thank you for trying out my pattern. This pattern is very simple, once you do, it will be so addictive to make more! 🙂

Please and do share your project using this pattern with me at my Ravelry = Snowhitery. Let me know how you think! You can also put flowers, button or ribbons to make it looks cuter! Let your imagination run wild <3

****
Note: Please contact me if you found any error with this pattern. I am not responsible for the result you gain by using my pattern if you knit with different yarns. Thank you for trying out this design! You can match the dress with my Ballerina Baby Booties and January Beanie for a set. Do share with me your project using this pattern. Pattern is copyrighted.
