Basic. Simple. Recycled scarf. 

I found some sale yarn I bought months ago and thought I’d try it on my knitting machine. The result? A great little summer scarf. Here’s a description of the yarn:

A fully recycled DK weight summer yarn with a wonderful rustic tweed effect.

Baby blue machine knit hat

This morning I decided to try and use my brother KX-350 home knitter knitting machine to make a baby blue child’s hat with a pom-pom. I could not find any patterns so I made this one up from looking at various videos online. For this hat I used 70 hooks and for the brim I knitted 50 rows then folded it over onto itself then continued knitting up to 90 rows. For the hat brim I set the tension dial at five then for the rest of the hat I set the tension dial at seven. I still need to work a lot on the seaming part but overall it turned out OK.

Light blue baby blanket

finished this in a couple of weeks 🙂 I used two strands of acrylic yarn in light blue and very light blue in a linen stitch and a size K hook. The border is one row in single crochet then a row of double crochet then a single row of single crochet. 

   
    
    
   

Lamb’s Pride Scarf

I was able to finish this beautiful scarf in only two evenings. I used two skeins of Lamb’s Pride in this wonderful shade of blue. The stitch is a linen stitch.

Newborn hat in blue and green

Here’s a hat I made using a free newborn full length half double crochet pattern from http://oombawkadesigncrochet.com. It was very easy to create and I think will work great for a newborn!

  

Girl’s hat with flower button

This is a girl’s hat for ages 1 to 2 years. I found this great button at Purl’s Yarn Emporium in Asheville. I don’t remember what size crochet hook I used 😦

  

Basket weave baby blanket

It only took me about two months of off and on working on this crib sized baby blanket. I did not use a pattern. Instead, I just used a basic basket weave stitch in basic acrylic yarn. The border is a very light blue in a half double crochet stitch. I hope it lasts for years to come 🙂

Striped scarf

This is a jumble of nylon, silk, cotton, merino wool, and microfiber. It turned very bumpy but soft from the sublime merino wool. See photos for yarns used. I also used a bamboo 8mm hook and the stitches are all half double crochet.
