Last week I was contacted on Ravelry by a knitter named Becky. She told me that she wanted to make a fingerless glove for her husband, preferably with my Seattle pattern using ARAN weight yarn. Since my original Seattle gloves are knitted with US#3, and Becky wants to make them with ARAN weight yarn, re-calculations and ultimately re-writing the whole pattern are in order. Instead of just re-calculate/re-write the existing pattern, I want to show you what it entails to do this. It's a lot of work! What happens if... Question: Let's say Becky would have printed out my original...
NOTE ADDED ON OCTOBER 21, 2010: YIKES I FOUND A TYPO IN ROW 3.... I am so sorry folks! I have corrected it in the pdf. If you have downloaded the pdf before or on Oct. 21, 2010, delete it and download the pattern again. If you have downloaded the pattern AFTER Oct. 21, 2010 you are fine! Special thanks to Ravelry member Ruthieless for inserting my images in the pdf file. The Vanessa headband is very cozy for those cold winter days when you need some protection for your head and ears. If you wish, you can also wear your Vanessa headband as a cowl. Very versatile little knitted piece!...
Note added 01-04-2011: **This pattern calls for 160 yards of worsted weight yarn, but if you have a skein of only 150 yards (such as 6-ply Mongolian Cashmere from Jade Sapphire) just SKIP STEP 6 in the pattern and you will be fine!** These long fingerless gloves made out of Cascade Venezia will make any girl feel feminine and a bit naughty. Knitted straight and then later seamed. These are similar to the Adrienne Gloves but have a smoother appearance. Go to the Adrienne Glove page to see a general picture tutorial on how to seam your glove and were to place thumb...
Inspired by the Felicity Hat designed by Brooklyn based crafty queen Wanett Clyde, I am presenting to you the Nettie Hat. Special thanks to Wanett Clyde for granting me permission to publish the Nettie Hat for free here on Getting Purly With It.

(Scroll all the way down to get to PDF files.) Nettie Hat Version 1 is knit in the round using US5 and US7 circular 16" (yarn used in this picture Malabrigo Silk/...

When I was a very new knitter I only knew how to do the knit stitch. So like many new knitters, I made a scarf entirely made with the knit stitch. I learned quickly that using only knit stitch in a garment, is called "Garter Stitch". Other than in my very first scarf, I never ever used the Garter Stitch again. That is, until recently when a lady walked into the yarnstore with the most beautiful and luscious scarf. I was simply captured by it and was surprised when I found out it was made with merely Garter Stitch! I could not stop thinking about that scarf and just had to make it...
I was playing around with some huge yarn called Colinette Point 5 and needle size US#19 and showed it to my co-worker Adrienne. She was immediately interested in the yarn, purchased some and two days later she presented me her version which you can see in the pictures. Sweet! Unlike me, Adrienne chose to work with needle size #17 because she wanted a more dense and closer knit cowl. Seeing her cowl made me change to needle #17 too! Allthough this very thick and thin yarn is totally out of my comfort zone, I have to admit that I really like it. The seed stitch gives it a very...
I was planning on writing a pdf.file for the pattern and to make some nice photographs on these long scalloped gloves but alas, I am running out of time. Several people have been asking me to please please post the pattern soon because it would make such a nice Christmas gift. Pdf.file will follow soon, for now you will have to do with this posting, aight? Long Fingerless Glove "Adrienne" This long fingerless glove is named after a beautiful and tall woman called Adrienne, who happens to be my friend! First I will give you sort of a picture tutorial and the entire pattern is written out...
A few months after I first learned how to do a knit stitch and a purl stitch, I was ready to venture out to lace. I was in awe of those knitters who could do lace and would browse the knitting forums and lurk in every thread were lace was discussed. One day, I stumbled across a lace thread over at Knittinghelp.com. The knitters were discussing a lace pattern called "Dayflower" and one knitter in particular wanted to double this pattern but did know how to. Other knitters came to the rescue and at the end of the thread somebody wrote out the whole 16 row repeat pattern and doubled it! I...
