That Knitting Kidd

My sister Wants me to make this object for one of her daughters. Maybe both. Thing is, is that the pattern is pay for - and it mentions some crocheting involved. I’m very hesitant to purchase a pattern that may require skills I do not have.

Has anyone made this before?

Does anyone know of a pattern like this that I could make instead (that doesn’t threaten crochet-related doom)?

I am out at camp for the summer. I will update when/as I can.

knitforlove answered: Have you thought about using the cocoon stitch?

I had not, but it appears to be a little too round. I would like to maintain the rectangle-esque appearance of the original. but that’s a brilliant suggestion I wouldn’t have thought of.

I’m currently working on creating a pattern for Worf’s Baldric, as I cannot find a good one. Hopefully I can get the prototype done before Comic Expo’s end.

This is mainly a texture comparison (and preview). I cannot hope to get the metal round links duplicated in wool, but I can replicate the general idea. Thoughts?

I’ve taken some better pictures of my recently completed Fingerless Mitt.

It’s now up for sale on Etsy. And the pattern should soon be completed and posted (for sale) on Etsy and Ravelry.

I’m working on my own version of the ever present fingerless mitts, working on making these both left and right handed, with some shaping. It’s working very well so far.

These wrist-warmers are currently in construction using some gorgeous yarn that I bought off a dyer (YarnLoftbyJulia) I found in my area through Etsy. Would highly recommend, as the yarn shipped quickly and arrived much faster than I expected (I’ve had this yarn for a whole week already!)

Apparently my lighting dramatically changes depending on the time of day. I should work on my consistency with that. The middle pictures are the closest to true colours.

Just posting a quick photo of my Birthday present for my adorable niece. Was a quick knit, took a handful of hours last night. Made from this pattern (non-Ravelry link).
I quite like how versatile this pattern is. Is very nice.

Pattern now available! You can find it for sale on Etsy and Ravelry.

Alternatively, I am also looking for testers. For the lucky few. Mwahaha.

Currently working on putting a pattern together for this Large Knit Headband, which is now up for sale on my Etsy.

Thought I’d share with you all, because I’m glad it turned out so well. It might have turned out a bit better if I used stripes, so each “large stitch” was a different colour from the previous (to emphasize the pattern).

The pattern is based on what I’ve heard referred to as “Rapunzel stitch”. I used this (German) video to learn it.

New Posting!

I’ve been working on this for ages, so very glad that it’s finally done. It’s a long skinny scarf, inspired by Gru from Despicable Me. Though, it’s still fashionable without the cosplay ;)

The scarf’s 6 2/3 feet long (80 inches, 204 cm) and 2.5 inches wide (6.5 cm).

The repeating pattern is something I especially enjoy. The black stripe is half the length of the grey stripe. Which satisfies something in me, aesthetic-wise.
