View Full Version : My Christmas FO's

Here's some projects that I recently finished. Emmy's scarf is my first ever attempt at intarsia and after a couple of tries, I got the hang of it and was quite impressed with myself! I used Bernat Softee Chunky for the scarf, hat, and leg warmers. All the patterns came from last winter's Knit Simple. I adapted the hat and leg warmers to work in the round, just so I wouldn't have to seam. :teehee: I did notice on the scarf though, that my red stitches are upside down on one side, it's not that noticeable with the other colours, but I think that's only because I had to flip the pattern over and work backwards, is that right?
Hanna's set was knit with Bernat Satin and goodness gracious, I love how the scarf turned, but oh the ends I had to weave in! I got that pattern from Scarf Style, the hat is just a basic hat pattern and the leg warmers are from the Bernat website.
Both the girls really loved their presents.
Jenn's set was knit with Joann's Sensations Bellisimo. Not a big fan of using this yarn for a hat, it took three attempts and going down needle sizes to make it so it wasn't huge! I liked using it for the scarf though, which is just stockinette with a garter edge on the sides and a ruffled edge at the ends. Hopefully, Jenn will like hers, we haven't gotten together for our Christmas yet.
And the last is a hat I made for myself, my first fair isle. I love doing fair isle and figured out how to do it using both my hands. I used Plymouth Encore DK.

Hi mystery, I got the hat pattern from here (http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/hats/ladys-fairisle-hat.htm).
It was the first fair isle I've ever done and it was super easy!
