Patriotic Decoration

Patriotic Decoration
 Created By: Kathy Underwood
 Time to Do: 16 hours
 Level: Intermediate

1. This pattern takes a long time, but it can be done in steps and it does not seem so long."  Place your finished pieces in a plastic bag to store between seasons and enjoy in the season.
3. This project is knit in the cable stitch where you use a single strand of knitting worsted yarn and put three rows on the looms and then take the bottom row up and over the other 2 rows."  Add one row and take the bottom row over the 2 rows." 
4. Start with the green loom and wrap all of the pegs on the loom, knit 30 rows."  Pull up the loops from the loom as you would if you were making a hat top." 
5. Make sure that you leave a hole in the middle to put over the dowel."  Run a piece of yarn through the beginning stitches and pull them up tight. (leave a hole to put the dowel through).
6. I felt that this would be an easier way to show how to make the rings."  There are 15 knitted disks.
7. Green loom: Claret or red 30 rows. Aren or white 30 rows. Claret or red 27 rows Aren or white 27 rows
8. Red loom: Claret or red 30 rows Aren or white 27 rows Claret or red 24 rows Aren or white 21 rows
9. Blue loom: Claret or red 27 rows Aren or white 24 rows Claret or red 21 rows Aren or white 18 Claret or red 15 Soft navy or Royal Blue 15 rows Soft navy or Royal Blue 13 rows Soft navy or Royal Blue"  11 rows
10. Using the white or aren yarn in the middle of the knitted blue pieces do a cross stitch and a stitch through the middle of the X.
11. Stack the circles in order and top with the wooden star.

Water Wave Shawl

 Created By: Clelle Gustin
 Time to Do: 2 - 2.5 hours
 Level: Intermediate

1. The main part of the knitting is done on every other peg. This makes the scarf very light and airy.
2. Wrap the first three pegs and knit 8 rows, back and forth.
3. Wrap the first three pegs, skip the next peg, and wrap around the next peg, turning back to the first 3 pegs.
4. Knit these loops and when you wrap again, skip the end peg and wrap around the next and turn.
5. Continue adding a stitch on the one side until you have the loom completely filled.
6. Knit these rows even for 18 rows.
7. Decrease one stitch on the right hand side, by turning on the last peg (make this last turning stitch very loose) and knit the next two stitches.
8. Using the crochet hook, take the loop from the turning peg and pull the next loop through the end one.
9. Place the remaining loop back on the same peg. Keep this very loose.
10. Knit even on the last three loops for about 8'? and make a tassel for the end.
11. Sew the small loop on the opposite end to make a loop for the long end to go through.
12. Put fringe on scarf and tie the ends of the yarn so that it can't unravel.
What you will need.
