New WIP again! Hope-to-be-a-slouchy hat :)

Salam semua! Yang ni latest work in progress saya hari ni.. mula semalam dan harap2.. malam ni boleh siap.. insyaAllah.. Just wanted to make something for my youngest sister, using Nako Yarn (Saten). I really love this yarn’s texture. It is soft and a bit fluffy.. So I am sure she’ll be comfortable wearing it πŸ™‚

Baju Cardi saya still belum buat lengannya lagi.. insyaAllah, esok saya cuba siapkan. Can’t wait to see it done!

Dear daknit readers, I really do apologize for not being able to update my blog as often as I can with new interesting happend inside my knitting/crochet world. Since i’ve changed school, my life is a bit up and down compared to when I was in my old school before. Being in a rural school and city school especially being in a Chinese School is totally totally a new experience for me. But at least πŸ™‚ Alhamdulillah.. I learnt many new things and I know what I need to do with my job as a teacher. Alhamdulillah.. Thank you so much to my family and my husband for always giving me their bestest support and encourage me to believe that there is nothing to worry when you face something new and moreoever, something you can’t never imagine will happen in your life!

Learning new things, having new experiences, really helps me to grow up and see things from different perspectives. So one thing I learntΒ  is that, no matter what, never ever judge things and people because you never know how they are and how they live!Β  πŸ™‚

Alhamdulillah.. syukur pada Allah, walau apa pun hidup ni.. kita harus sentiasa bersyukur dengan apa yang ada. Biasalah dalam hidup kita ni akan sentiasa berhadapan dengan pelbagai ujian.. hanya kita sentiasa perlu berusaha, berdoa, lakukan yang terbaik dan yakin pada setiap apa yang Allah berikan. Berhubung baik sesama manusia.. dengan haiwan.. dengan setiap ciptaan makhluk Allah swt.

Manusia tak akan pernah merasa puas, tapi bersyukurlah dengan kepuasan yang ada.. insyaAllah hidup akan sentiasa diberkati.

Ups.. malalut pula πŸ˜›

Oklah.. Until next time!

Thank you for hopping by and may Allah swt bless us all πŸ™‚ Amin ya rabbal’alamin.

Knitting Hat Tutorial with 2 straight Needles by Da'Knit

Assalamualaikum semua.. alhamdulillah hari ini saya berkesempatan untukΒ  membuat tutorial membuat topi yang paling ringkas dan senang bagi sesiapa yang ingin baru belajar mengait jarum dua. Semoga tutorial ini dapat membantu kita semua insyaAllah. NOTE: Saya menggunakan jarum circular tetapi cara tutorial ini adalah untuk jarum kait dua biasa.

Bahan-bahan yang diperlukan:

1 pasang jarum kait dua (1 pair of knitting needles) saiz 4.5mm

1 buku benang Magic Baby 100gm

1 batang jarum crochet (crochet hook) saiz 3.5mm

Gunting

Pattern:

Stockinette Stitch ( Asas yang perlu diketahui adalah Cast On, Knit, Purl dan Bind Off)

Ribbing ( 2 x 2 RIBBING = *KNiT 2 kali, PURL 2 Kali* ulang dari * ke * )

K2TOG , Knit 2 together (KNiT 2 sts sekali kaitan)

KNIT SIDE (right side)

PURL SIDE (wrong side)

Langkah-langkah:

1. Cast On menggunakan Long Tail Cast On sebanyak 72 sts.

Seperti gambar di atas, pastikan setelah membuat cast on, buat 2 x 2 RIBBING sebanyak 10 baris.

ROW 1 (right side) : *Knit 2, Purl 2* ulang dari * ke * sehingga habis baris pertama.Β  ROW 2 (wrong side) : *Purl 2, Knit 2* ulang dari * ke * sehingga habis baris kedua. ULANG ROW 1- ROW 2 sehingga 10 KALI.

2. Setelah selesai RIBBING, pada baris seterusnya .. kait KNiT sehingga habis baris pada KNiT SIDE. Kemudian, pada baris seterusnya, kait PURL sehingga habis baris pada PURL SIDE. Maksudnya, sebaris KNiT, sebaris PURL.

Teruskan mengait KNiT dan PURL sehingga panjang kaitan anda sekurang-kurangnya 10-15 cm dari Cast On (mengikut panjang yang anda suka)

Setelah itu, DECREASE akan bermula untuk membuat TOP.

Memandangkan bilangan stitches yang digunakan adalah nombor genap, maka kita boleh membuat DECREASE sebanyak 4 kali pada baris RIGHT SIDE. Merujuk pada gambar di atas, 72/4 = 18 sts. Bermakna, setiap sts yangΒ  ke 17 dan 18 kita akan buat K2TOG untuk decrease. K2TOG ialah Knit 2 together. STITCH MARKERS digunakan untuk menanda tempat berlakunya DECREASE. Maka, setiap 18 sts, kita letakkan Stitch Markers.

KNiT 2 TOGETHER pada 2 sts terakhir sebelum STiTCH MARKERS.

3. Seterusnya, pada RIGHT SIDE, lakukan DECREASE (k2tog) pada setiap SEBELUM Stitch Markers.

4. PADA SETIAP WRONG SIDE, kait PURL seperti biasa tanpa decrease.

5. ULANG LANGKAH 3-4 sehingga stitches yang tinggal di atas jarum hanya ada sekurang-kurangnya 8-12 sts. Setelah itu, BIND OFF stitches yang tinggal.

Dah siap BIND OFF…

Setelah itu, gunakan jarum crochet untuk mencantum belahan tadi melalui PURL SIDE.

YAY! Anda berjaya mengait topi πŸ˜€

Thanks to my hubby for willingly to be my hat model πŸ˜›
