Stab In The Art











{September 15, 2010}   Must be almost Christmas!

Not really, but I got some Christmas Knitting patterns from Spotlight and made a Santa. Yay. He’s so cute, although he’s a bit skinny, but it’s cool. I was thinking of trying the Reindeer next.

There was a couple of problems with the pattern though.

After waist shaping, it says for Mrs. Claus knit 7 rows of white in stocking st, but then goes straight on to neck shaping, Leaving out Poor Santa’s whole torso. So basing on the picture, I added two rows of black, and four rows of Red before neck shaping.

The other problem was with the hat. It says:

Shape Top: (K2, K2Tog) to end…21sts
Work 3 Rows of Stocking St.
K2Tog to end…7sts.
Work 5 rows

Now, anyone who passes maths should know that half of 21 isn’t 7, so I added another decrease row after 3 rows of the 5 rows.

Hope this helps, If anyone needs it.
