Rajut Free Knitting Pattern : Simple Baby pants and boxing mitten

Today I less and less doing knitting 100% from free patterns. But I definitely still seek inspirations from many free patterns that being shared by so many kind knitters out there.

and here i am, knitting a baby pants and baby mitten that inspired from crocheted pieces which had similar form.

And here where i got inspirations from =

short pants = Braided Longies free knitting pattern by Raya Budrevich
I only change the pattern into more simple one by turn the cable part into stockinette and made it into shorts. After i finished the piece, i knit two simple i-cord which then i seamed to both side of the pants to add a nice texture.

This mitten already had an interesting shape. But thank God, I kind of person who like to see the samples of finished project when i browse a pattern on Ravelry, there i found one thumb modification of this pattern! And yes this modification is not written by the creator for you to read, but you can recreate it by see her progress photo.

Overall, you have to be an intermediate knitter to knit these patterns. Either for follow it as the pattern wrote it, or to doing your modification as i did. But, just dare yourself I think ;)

Happy Knitting!!

Book Review : Woodland Knits

author : Stephanie Dosen
Publisher : Quadrille Publishing 2013

I first interested in this book, because at that time I browsed at online book store, I want to make something unusual. And you can see, just from the cover, you will may make deer antlers and deer ears!
And (as always) after i peeking some of the inside pages by browsing at Google image, I decided to buy this book.

I quite happy with the book. It has nice layout design.. And the feeling i got was like peeking to somebody personal project diary. Someone who like something unique and like fairy tale and woods so much. And like earth color also so much. :D
see how beautiful the pages... like open your own diary!
Maybe I will not knit some of the designs in this book, since I live in tropical country (which make me do not need any thick and warm sweater), but I will like to try some of these unique designs. I found that her explanation very easy to follow and very clear. I already tried Mr. Fox Stole My Heart knitting pattern, and want to make again!

Happy Knitting! :D

my version of "Mr.Fox stole my heart"

*book review i made at this blog are not for promoting the book. I made simply because i like it and i actually have a copy of it at my hand :)
