if you don't mind cables, this is a great hat. You can do them without a cable needle.
I have seen a number of questions about "What is the best Provisional Cast-on" There is a question on the Ravelry Men Who Knit forum that I have been reading.
I'm a little confused by the terminology. It lists a "knit one front and back" as the same as a bar increase...? I know the bar as the yarn that runs between stitches, and a "make one" as pulling up that bar, twisting and knitting it (R or L as need be).
It's been quite a fall/early winter and I haven't been on much. At the end of September, I moved back to the US after 14 years in Turkey. I have been knitting here and there though,and as life settles down, I've slowly been getting back into old habits. :) Also enjoying some new ones!
After the challenge from michaelpthompson, I thought hard and long about how to do this. The other night, at 1 am when I sat down to watch "The Interview", I decided to do a sample. Doing it in your head is not always the same as actually doing it on the needles!
As soon as my son and his family left to go home to TN I began the scarf. I am making it for myself. The color is pecan from La Jolla "Baah" Original Hand Painted Yarn 100% Super wash Merino - Fingerling Weight 30 sts +4 inches. I am using Lantern Moon 3.5 mm/US4 sized needles. Jeffrey
Good Morning Guys,
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year. Here's to completing projects, adding to the stash and having a great time with a craft that we all share. Glad for this community of knitting brothers.
Merry Christmas to all,
My next project will be the Socks Appeal Boxers by the Skacel Collection. I just cast on the 56 stitches required for the center back panel. I am using leftover yarn in my stash. Should be fun and easy. Mindless TV knitting while sitting with my wife while she is watching her shows. Hope you've all got your shopping done. JRob
