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.

Instructions:
Cast On 68 Sts (Baris 1- Baris 4 adalah Garter Stitch)
Baris 1 (Right side): Knit hingga akhir baris
Baris 2 (Wrong side): Knit hingga akhir baris
Baris 3: Knit hingga akhir baris
Baris 4: Knit hingga akhir baris

Pembahagian untuk Raglan (increase untuk mendapatkan bahagian lengan):

Baris 5: K11 (bahagian hadapan), pm, K2, pm, K8 (lengan), pm, K2, pm, K22 (bahagian belakang), pm, K2, pm, K8 (lengan), pm, K2, pm, K11 (hadapan)
Baris 6: Kait P sehingga akhir baris.

** Red FONT adalah teknik Increase.

Bahagian Increase bermula:

Baris 7: K11, YO, K2, YO, K8, YO, K2, YO, K22, YO, K2, YO, K8, YO, K2, YO, K11 (menggunakan teknik Yarn Over, kita akan increase 8 stitches sepanjang baris)

Baris 8: Kait P sehingga akhir baris

(Dengan menambah 1 Sts di bahagian baris Right Side sebelum dan selepas K2 dengan menggunakan Yarn Over seperti pada baris 7, teruskan mengait mengikut paten baris 7 dengan terus menambah “increase” pada  setiap baris right side, di mana setiap baris Right Side kita akan akan increase 8 sts, dan kait purl sehingga habis baris pada bahagian Wrong Side, teruskan langkah ini sehingga anda mencapai 180 sts sebelum kita membahagikan bahagian lengan – Untuk ini, jumlah baris anda bermula dari cast on ialah 32 baris.

Pembahagian lengan:

Baris 33: K29, pindahkan 36 sts seterusnya (iaitu sts untuk sleeve) ke stitch holder ataupun tali benang yang tidak digunakan, kemudian, knit 50 sts seterusnya, kemudian, pindahkan lagi 36 sts seterusnya ke stitch holder, dan kemudian knit lagi 29 sts seterusnya sehingga habis baris.

Baris 34: Kait Purl sehingga habis baris (sts yang berada di stitch holder/baki benang kita tinggalkan dahulu)

Bahagian badan (di bahagian badan, sts anda kini berjumlan 108 sts, di mana kita akan mendapat 6 ombak Old Shale – sila lihat gambar untuk mendapatkan gambaran ombak Old Shale):

Sekarang, kita tinggalkan dahulu bahagian sleeves, sambung kait untuk bahagian badan:

Old Shale Pattern Stitch (Gandaan 18 Sts),

Bermula di bahagian Right Side (Odd row), dan Wrong Side (Even row)

Nombor 1:      (K2tog x 3), *[(YO, K1) x 6 kali, (K2tog x 6 times)]* teruskan mengait dari symbol * ke simbol * untuk 5 kali lagi) sehingga tinggal 6 stitches yang terakhir, kait k2tog sebanyak 3 kali (maksudnya, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog). Baris seterusnya,

Nombor 2:      Knit hingga akhir baris, kemudian baris seterusnya

Nombor 3:      Knit hingga akhir baris, kemudian baris seterusnya

Nombor 4:      Purl hingga akhir baris

Teruskan mengait dari nombor 1 hingga  semula dan berulang sehingga panjang yang anda inginkan. Kemudian, knit Nombor 1, baris seterusnya, buat bind off (BO) sehingga akhir baris. Cut yarns, weave off.

Lengan (menggunakan Magic Loop Technique) x buat 2 lengan:

Di bahagian ini, kita akan kait terus bahagian lengan tanpa perlu buat sebarang jahitan ataupun jika ada, sedikit jahitan sahaja. Langkah seterusnya, anda boleh mulakan bahagian kanan ataupun kiri dulu mengikut keselesaan (untuk memahami teknik Pick Up, anda boleh layari youtube.com dan search untuk How To Pick Up Knitting Stitch ataupun klik http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htAHtNnuE7Q )

Menggunakan benang yang sama, pick up 1 Sts  di bawah lengan, pindahkan kesemua 36 Sts tadi ke jarum, kemudian pick up lagi 1 Sts di bawah lengan, kini anda akan mempunyai 38 sts. Bahagikan 38 Sts tadi kepada dua bahagian (18-18).

Bagi memudahkan anda, bolehlah diletakkan “Marker” pada awal stc sebagai tanda “mula”. Knit kesemua sts menggunakan teknik Magic Loop (Magic Loop Tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mqIqRdJc68 atau http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdSpc0EZpnk) sehingga panjang yang anda kehendaki ataupun sebanyak 30 baris. Di bahagian ini anda tidak perlu Purl. Hanya kait Knit sahaja.

Kemudian, sebelum anda Bind Off, bolehlah kait lagi satu baris secara PURL. Setelah Purl semua baris yang terakhir, Bind Off semua sts. Purl di bahagian akhir ini bertujuan untuk memastikan hujung lengan anda tidak bergulung. Ulang langkah di atas untuk lengan yang kedua.

Bahagian Button Band:

Pick Up 32 stitches bermula dari baris Cast On pada hujung bahagian depan, Setelah memperolehi 32 sts, kait Ribbing 2 x 2. Untuk buat lubang butang, buat 4 lubang menggunakan teknik Yarn Over dengan jarak di antara mereka antara 1 atau 1 ½ cm. Buat ribbing sebanyak 8 baris, kemudian Bind Off.

Pick up 32 sts.
Baris 1: (k2, p2) ulang langkah ( ) sehingga habis baris
Baris 2: (K2, p2) ulang langkah ( ) sehingga habis baris
Baris 3: (K2, YO,p2tog, K2, P2, K2, P2) ulang langkah ( ) sehingga habis baris
Baris 4: (k2, p2) ulang langkah ( ) sehingga habis baris
Baris 5: (K2, p2) ulang langkah ( ) sehingga habis baris
Baris 6: (k2, p2) ulang langkah ( ) sehingga habis baris
Baris 7: (K2, p2) ulang langkah ( ) sehingga habis baris
Baris 8: (k2, p2) ulang langkah ( ) sehingga habis baris

Bind off baris seterusnya.

Ulang langkah di atas untuk bahagian sebelah band pula tanpa membuat lubang.

Jahitkan butang kegemaran anda. Kemaskan jahitan. Done! J

Kawaii Ruffle Dress

Blocking! it becomes more softer after washed . This is why I love Nako Hosgeldin!

NOTE: I made for my daughter. Made the measurement. Did it with correct gauge. Somehow I did not check the gauge  after washed and it turns out 1 inch wider than the original size. That, will be in my mind next time!
1526931_663840676972780_174662239_nStill.. i’m very satisfied with my new design 😀 will write down the pattern as soon as possible. I have the draft and will edit soon.

Old Shale Pattern Stitch (Multiple 18 Sts), starting with Right Side (Odd row), and Wrong Side (Even row)
       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.
       Number 2:      Knit
       Number 3:      Knit
       Number 4:.    Purl
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.
Button Band:
Pick Up 32 stitches at the edge of both right front and left front side (from cast on row) by making 2 x 2 ribbing (refer note).  For button hole, make 4 button holes on the left side with 1- 1 ½ cm gap between holes. Continue ribbing until you have 8 rows, then bind off. Below is detail instruction.
Pick up 32 sts ( or you may also pick up from the bottom to cast on row as how you desired but only to make sure that the numbers of your pick up stitch are equal to Ribbing 2 x 2 count).
Row 1: (k2, p2) Repeat ( ) till end.
Row 2: (K2, p2) Repeat ( ) till end.
Row 3: (K2, YO,p2tog, K2, P2, K2, P2) Repeat ( ) till end.

Row 6: (k2, p2) Repeat ( ) till end.

Simply Pretty Baby Dress – First Trial!

dressAlhamdulillah.. I finished this dress within 1 week + (and yes, just now). Oh oh.. I really love how it turns out at the end, though, I kept being hesitated to choose either I should come up with lace or just simple basic knit. I used my daughter’s dress to get the measurement I need for 1 year old size. The ruffle was a trial and error and unexpectedly, it comes out like how I really wish to knit

As I said, I need to make a simple easy raglan cardigan as a Kit (but sorry.. I can not help myself but to knit a dress ) But insya Allah, it will be easy and I will try my best to make it easier for beginner to read and follow.

I’m going to make another one using different yarn (I’m planning to use Nako Luks Minnos) and re-write the pattern again.

Wish me luck again, and hope I can release the pattern by the end of September.

Happy knitting!
