Show your knitting and crochet

(Brenda Cumming) #1

There doesn’t seem to be a thread for knitting and crochet, so I thought I would start one.
I know there are a lot of you who do both…so please share on this thread…

I will start the thread off with this baby cardigan that I designed and listed this morning. There are many entrelac patterns out there but this one is my own pattern…it took many hours to work it out and for me to be happy with the finished instructions.

Wow that’s amazing Brenda - it looks very complicated but has worked out beautifully!

Almost everything in my shop is crocheted but have chosen this necklace for today.

I have few knitted items like this cushion which I designed for a competition

I love intricate patterns, even though they take ages to knit by hand. Here’s a colourful bobble hat.

I love this pattern I first created it for a scarf/cowl then created it for these fingerless gloves.

(Claire Woodhead) #11

Just about everything in my shop is knitted or crocheted. This is one of my favourites

well done everyone…I just KNEW there would be a “call” for this thread…I wonder why no one has started one before?
Kim…I spent most of my life designing and teaching Machine knitting…you are MORE than welcome.

I also designed many crocheted garments but right now my hands are objecting, so I am hand knitting again…for some reason, hand knitting is ok and not painful to do.
PLEASE everyone, keep showing your work…doesn’t matter how many items we show…we need to get our work noticed and out there !!
It would also be helpful (but not compulsory) for each of us to go and like items in each other’s shops…Help each other to get sales…woohoo !!

(Brenda Cumming) #13

I have been back and “liked” eveyone’s items…
This was me 25 years ago !!!

Thank you Brenda although there’s lots of us that crochet and knit and as diverse and popular as it is, it still doesn’t seem to have the kudos of other crafts i.e. jewellery,textiles,pottery etc.

I LOVE knitting these baby hats, a lot of my knitwear is made in autumnal colours, so it makes a nice change to knit these in bright colours.
