Knitting Ideas For The Home

hi, guys and welcome to studio knit. today, we are going to knit a soccer ball!goal!!! it is a fun toy for children, or even dogs! i just noticed that the leading knitting websiteravelry is featuring my colorful soccer ball on their home page and blog and it is gettinga lot of love. so, i thought it would be fun to share my process of knitting this plushtoy with you. the materials we will use are:10 grams of yarn, in any colors of your choice 2 size 6 us knitting needlesscissors, a tapestry needle and about 8 ounces of fluffy stuffing!

we will first create twenty individual hexagonknit shapes. mine are white. and twelve pentagons, which i made in variousvibrant colors. this project really familiarizes you withhow a soccer ball is constructed. i never realized it is composed of both hexagons andpentagons. oh, and if you are enjoying learning how toknit a soccer ball, please hit like. let me know you would enjoy seeing more fun ideaslike this! i learned how to make this knit soccer ballfrom the great free pattern at yanaknits. i have the link to the complete pattern inthe description below, including how to make the hexagon and pentagon shapes.

i have created this graphic to help you seehow to knit your shapes together. i�ll include a link to download this graphic in the descriptionbelow, too. once all your knit shapes are ready, startknitting them together, following the chart. this ball is, of course, in 3-d, so the shapeswill connect together in a really cool way. notice how you always have your pentagon encircledwith five hexagons? keeping that in mind will help you as you get closer to wrapping thepiece around to connect all of the sides together. oh, if you would like to add a shaker, getcreative! i took a plastic easter egg, filled it with dried brown rice, and taped it securelyshut. once we have knitted up all but the opening,it is time for the stuffing! i�m placing

we continue decreasing our rows in all theway down until we have knit the last two together. because i cast on 48 stitches, which is 6multiples of 8, i have six stitches remaining. i love the dimensional look of the strawberryhat topper. there are these great ridges and depth. looks like it was way more complicatedto knit than it is! always a plus. now we are ready to begin finishing up withour cute little stem, put on a leaf embellishment, and weaving in our yarn ends, and we are goingto learn how to do all of that in part five of my series. i hope you are inspired to knit up these adorablestrawberry baby hats. to learn how to knit these from start to finish, including a writtenpattern and tutorials on all the knitting

Knitting Ideas For Mother'S Day

a knitted lavender heart sachet [l.o.v.e.l.o.v.e.] hi, guys i’m kristen and welcome to studio knit. i love the sweet, naturalsmell of lavender. research shows the scent lowers heart rate and blood pressure, putting you in a relaxed state. what i love about these knitted lavender heart sachets is thatthe yarn is woven tightly enough to keep your loose lavender inside, but it's porous enough to let all the delicious lavender scent release. i became totally inspired by sarah’s threelavender diys of coral tv from our recent kin community new year new you collaboration. i also love tessa evelegh’s book lavender, as well. it's full of practical inspirationsfor natural gifts, recipes and decorative displays. i’m including the link to bothcoral tvs lavender video and tessa evelegh’s

book in the description below. so from sarah's tutorial, i lit my newly created diy lavender candle and set out to create my very own lavender sachet. a knitted version, of course. and this heart shape is totally perfect for valentine’sday and all year round as a gift to anyone you love! especially yourself!the materials we will use are: worsted or aran weighted yarn, in any colors of yourchoice, size 7 or 8 us knitting needles, a tapestry needle, scissors. oh, and lavender.i found my dried lavender at my local craft store. and for this project, i have designeda really simple knitted puffy heart shape. the links to my free pattern and completeknitting video tutorial for my knitted hearts are in the description below. so, once youhave knitted up your two heart shapes, to

make up the front and back of your sachet,simply tack them together using yarn and your tapestry needle with the right side of yourpieces facing together. turn them inside out. and what i love is that all of our littleyarn ends will be able to just stuff right into our sachet for extra stuffing. and thenadd your loose lavender, and then close up your little hold by finishing the seam. it’sso pretty, smells great, relaxing, and full of love. your friends, family, and loved oneswill cherish this thoughtful handmade gift made especially by you! i hope you give thisfun quick knit project a try. and thank you so much for watching studio knit. when yousubscribe, you will receive a new knitting video every monday. make sure to check outall of my favorite valentine’s day projects

Knitting Ideas For Him

how to make a rose from a necktie.[you mean everything to me] hi, guys, i’m kristen and welcome to studioknit! father’s day is upon us, and i thought it would be really fun to create a twist onthe traditional necktie gift. let’s recycle old neckties from our dad or our local second–handstore and make them into these gorgeous diy fabric flowers. the materials we will use are neckties inany fabric and your color choice is totally optional, a glue gun, measuring tape, andscissors. oh, if you think this would be a fun diy projectto try, please hit like to let me know you would like to see more projects like this!

to begin, first cut off the label. with thebackside of our tie facing us, we start with the narrow tail end of the tie and measure10 inches. i’m marking it off here with a tapestry needle. we just start rolling itup tightly to create the middle of our rose, dabbing a bit of hot glue as we go along.once we reach our marker of ten inches, it is time to start making our rose petals. simplytwist your tie counter-clockwise and secure with hot glue as you go along. you’ll seethat by twisting our tie, the rose petals are formed creating little points along theway. continue rolling up and securing with glue. nearing the end, i like to make useof the decorative tipping area of our tie, which is usually a different pattern or color,to create our roses’ leaf. simply place

along the backside of our rose, glue it downso it is peeking out, and you are done. [who knew we would come so far] thank you so much for watching studio knit!please subscribe and check out my complete father’s day diy gift idea playlist, includinghow to knit a necktie and coming soon, how to bake bacon roses! happy father’s day,everyone! bye!
