Penguin Jumper Diagram

Fire up your knitting needles and help baby Penguins stay warm...

 
I was told the baby Penguins are in trouble again, and they really do need those sweaters this time (evidently, there has been much controversy and excitement over it about which I was unaware)... So, I decided that if I was going to jump into the fray and make a few for donation, I'd better get busy and come up with a working diagram first.  Because, I find that visuals are most helpful when knitting and crocheting.  They often make the text more comprehensible, and the process speedier.
 
So there you have it; hope it will be of use to some charitable souls out there who would like to help them out.
 
This links to the latest call for sweaters, complete with cute pictures and easy patterns for the Penguin sweaters.  Always remember to use real wool yarns for them, because living out on those icebergs, they need the very warmest fibers available.  (I'm thinking laundry shrinkage won't ever be an issue for them, so synthetics aren't necessary.)
 
Link to the official pattern.
 
Apparently, this has been an ongoing concern for at least a few years.  I do feel for them; because I can imagine just how difficult it must be, trying to survive in a Global Economy dominated by the Nazi Fascist Corporate State.  I mean, it's even tough for us Human beings (perhaps more so, in many ways)...

American Fascist Dictatorship and the Corporate State, the Beginning of the End of Democracy: George Washington, Cincinnatus, and Mussolini

http://societyofthecincinnati.org/contribute

Although this is now 2014, the Society only has published a list of contributors and patrons from 2011, apparently.  This list includes European nobility, the highest ranking officers in all branches of the US military, Ambassadors, judges, doctors, lawyers -- every type of "professional".  The list also includes "anonymous" and a number of non-profit organizations, family trusts, etc.

Yet with all this money backing them, they still don't seem to have enough -- they continue to solicit more from the general public, which is generally excluded from membership in this particular fraternal organization.  Using the founder of the Society, George Washington, they attempt to play upon American red-blooded patriotism... Yet the Society is about as un-American as imaginable:  it is as much French as it is American, for one thing.  And for another, Cincinnatus was a Roman dictator -- the exact antithesis of freedom and democracy.
 
 
Notice their logo and the significance of blood and eugenics to these people:

    Art Deco Style Shawl Pattern

    I'm making a shawl like an early 1930s vintage one that I saw online; and I have no photos to post, so I present this little diagram to show the general conformation of the pattern that I developed for it:


    The semi-circular, half-moon shaped body of the shawl with eight spokes is done in a close double-crochet mesh -- chain-1s are made only six times on the second row and once at each of the six V-stitch pattern (1 dc, ch-1, 1 dc) increases on those six central 'spokes'.  An increase is also made at both edges of every row, but without the added ch-1.  The ch-1s in the pattern at the six central increases are what form the pretty shape of the shawl.

    After the main body of the shawl is complete, a round of single crochets is made around the entire garment, then a deep ruffle is formed at the lower rounded edge, with three fan-shaped scallops in between each spoke, for a total of 21 scallops, each one comprised of eight rows fanning out and finishing with a more open, lacier seventh row and a final row of dainty picots.

    Depending on the gauge, yarns and hook sizes used for the work, this design could be done in either treble or double crochet (my prototype is in double crochet stitch).  Apparently, with a Bulky weight yarn and treble crochets, one would only need to make about 21 rows for the main body of the shawl.  But I wanted a slightly closer mesh, so used double crochet for my wool shawl (size "I" hook, with a light worsted / aran / dk weight mothproof Tapestry yarn).  I'd probably go with a more open mesh for a Summer shawl, and use cotton, silk, or bamboo fibers.

    My yarns for this project are Brunswick Needlepoint Tapestry yarn, a hand-dyed 100% virgin wool product made in Pickens, South Carolina; and Bernat Tapestria 100% virgin wool from Uxbridge, Massachusetts.  I don't know whether or not these yarns are still available currently, since I found them in a Thrift shop.


    To begin (Row 1):  Chain 3, join to form a circle; then chain 3 and make 8 more dcs in the circle just formed (9 dcs total, counting the beginning ch-3)... turn your work at the end of every row.

    Edited Row 2:  Chain 3 (counts as the first dc of the row) * 1 dc in next stitch, ch-1 * repeat across, six times; ending with 1 dc in the next-to-last stitch plus 1 dc in the top of the beginning ch-3 of first row.  (9 dcs total, counting the beginning ch-3).

    Now you should have six (ch-1) spaces on that row:  the six central spaces where you will begin forming vertical lines of (dc, ch-1, dc) V-stitch pattern increases.

    (You will also work an increase at the beginning and end of every row, by placing 1 dc in between the two 1-dc stitches positioned side-by-side there, and another dc right next to it at the very edge, into the very first and last stitches of each row -- but omitting the ch-1s there, in order to maintain the correctly semi-circular shape.)

    NOTE:  For the rest of the main body of the shawl (i.e. not for the scalloped lace edging), you will work the pattern stitches only into the spaces of the previous rows -- not into the stitches as was done in Row 2 (except, as already mentioned above, for the very first and last 1-dcs of each row, which are worked into the very first and last 1-dc stitches of the previous rows).

    Row 3:  Chain 3 (always counts as the first dc of every row), 1 dc in first space, * 1 dc, ch-1, 1 dc (increase) in next ch-1 space * repeat six times across that row, ending with 1 dc in between the last two dcs plus 1 dc in the last stitch of the row.  Turn.

    (Or alternatively for the last two dcs of every row, you can make them together in the last space of each row -- that's actually how I do it, because it works just as well for shaping and it's a bit faster and easier besides).

    Row 4:  Chain 3, 1 dc in first space between stitches of previous row, * 1 dc in next space between stitches of previous row, 1 dc, ch-1, 1 dc (V-stitch pattern increase) in the next ch-1 space of the previous row * repeat six times; end by working 1 dc into each of the next two spaces between stitches of previous row, and then 1 dc into the last stitch of the row.

    To complete the main body of the shawl, simply repeat Row 4, making additional 1-dc stitches into the extra spaces between stitches as they naturally form in between the six V-stitch increases of every row.  Most experienced crocheters can understand what I mean, with a little help from the diagram above.

    The mesh is formed more closely than most mesh patterns, because you aren't making ch-1s in between every dc (only at the six central spokes, for shaping).  And you aren't working directly into the stitches of the previous rows either, as with typical Filet crochet meshwork (except for the very first and last stitch of every row, of course) -- instead, for this pattern you are working mostly in between the stitches of previous rows.
    (This graphic has been edited since first posting; edited 7/26/2013)

    My admittedly crude diagram for the first five rows.  The Pink lines indicate proper placement of the ch-1 spaces, otherwise it's all dcs.  I didn't bother trying to show where the ch-3 beginning dcs go, since they're always at the beginning of rows anyway (besides, I'm left-handed so crochet in reverse, and that might be too confusing for everyone concerned).

    This pattern produces a fabric that gently ruffles and curves ever-so-slightly toward the front, for a perfectly feminine cape.

    I will add instructions later, for the Scalloped Lace ruffle (haven't gotten that far yet, just wanted to get this much down before I forget -- I'm excited about this pattern, because Art Deco fashion style is one of my many creative passions).  I plan to find (or produce myself) some auxiliary information for this project, hopefully with pictures and diagrams for the basic stitch patterns, too.

    Until then:  au revoir, mes amis qui aiment faire du crochet :)

    My Crocheted Toque Hat Pattern

    I made a lovely hat, shaped like a toque, but have no picture of it to post here.  However, the shape of it is much like this classy little number:

    And mine fits a lot like this one, too.
     
    Anyway, I like the pattern so much that I plan to make more of them in the future, so here it is:
     
    I used two strands of worsted weight wool, for bulk, and a size "K" crochet hook.  It worked up very fast, and I like the earthy-woodsy combination of brown and green wools in mine.  I sparked it up with a lovely shell stitch pattern, too.
     
    Note:  Join every Round w/ slip stitches, but do not turn the work.  Beginning at crown (top center) of hat:
     
    Round 1:  Chain 3, 6 sc in 3rd chain from hook (6 stitches total)
     
    Round 2:  Chain 1, 2 sc in each stitch (increasing to 12 stitches total)
     
    Round 3:  Chain 1,
     
    * 1 sc in first stitch of previous round, 3 dc (shell) in next stitch *
     
    repeat for a total of six 3-dc shells (increasing to 24 stitches)
     
    Round 4:  Chain 3 (counts as first dc of shell)
     
    * make shell of 5 dc in first (sc) stitch of previous row, 1 sc in top center dc of following shell *
     
    repeat for a total of six 5-dc shells (increasing to 36 stitches)
     
    Round 5:  Slip to center of shell from previous row, chain 1,
     
    * 1 sc in top of shell, in next sc st make a shell of 7 dcs this time *
     
    repeat for a total of six 7-dc shells (increasing to 48 stitches)
     
    Round 6:  Chain 3 (counts as 1 dc in top of sc from previous round),
     
    * 1 hdc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 5 sts, 1 hdc in next st, 1 dc in sc st of previous round, 1 hdc in next st *
     
    repeat around.  Join in top of ch-3 (the first dc stitch of that round), for a total of 48 sts
     
    Round 7:  Chain 1, 2 sc (increase) in top of same ch-3 stitch that you just joined from the previous round,
     
    * 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, 2 sc in the 4th st, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, 2 sc in next dc of the previous round, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts *
     
    repeat around (increasing 12 stitches evenly in the round for a total of 60 stitches)
     
    Round 8:  Chain 1, 1 sc in first st of previous round, skip 1 stitch, 3 dc (shell) in next st, skip 1 stitch,
     
    * 1 sc in next st, skip 1 stitch, 3 dc (shell) in next st, skip 1 st *
     
    repeat around and join to first sc of previous round (fifteen 3-dc shells; 60 stitches total)
     
    Round 9:  Chain 3 (counts as first dc of first shell), make a 5-dc shell in the first sc of previous round, 1 sc in top center of next shell of previous round,
     
    * make a 5-dc shell in next sc st, 1 sc in top center of next shell *
     
    repeat around and join to the top chain of the ch-3 at the beginning of the round (fifteen 5-dc shells; 90 stitches total)
     
    Round 10:  Slip stitch to center of beginning shell of previous round, chain 1, 1 sc in top of that same first shell, make a 7-dc shell in next sc st of previous round,
     
    *1 sc in top center of next shell, make a 7-dc shell in next sc st *
     
    repeat around and join to the first sc of the round (fifteen 7-dc shells; 120 stitches total)
     
    Round 11:  Make a round of 5-dc shells this time (decreasing to 90 stitches)
     
    Round 12:  Make a round of 3-dc shells this time (decreasing to 60 stitches)
     
    Rounds 13-17:  Make 5 more rounds of 3-dc shells (maintaining 60 stitches each round)
     
    Round 18:  1 sc in each stitch, working every 9th & 10th stitch together as one (decreasing 6 stitches evenly around, for a total of 54 stitches)
     
    Rounds 19 & 20:  1 sc in each stitch (54 stitches)
     
    Round 21:  Slip stitch in every sc stitch of previous round (54 stitches); join and finish

    Vintage V-Stitch Crocheted Hat

    ~ Vintage V-Stitch Hat ~
     
    From this Volume 1 issue of McCall's Accessories, originally published in 1970
     
    Years ago, I made several of the hats from this McCall's issue.  They are all wonderful patterns and I prize my tattered copy (with a few pages missing, no less) that I found at a yardsale or thrift store, probably.  I love both of the hats shown in this picture; but the one I made for a friend is the one on the right, and it turned out so cute that I would like to make another one -- for me, lol.  It's very simple, yet different too.
     
    SIZE:  Adjustable
     
    MATERIALS:  Knitting worsted [I recommend 8 ounces or two 4-oz skeins for the hat -- and two strands of yarn are worked together for this project]; Crochet hook size "K"
     
    GAUGE:  7 stitches = 3 inches; 3 rows = 2 inches
     
    CUFF:  With 2 strands of [yarn], chain 69 loosely
     
    Row 1:  (right side) YO [yarn over] hook, draw up a loop to measure 3/4" in 4th chain from hook, skip next chain, draw up a loop in next chain, YO and [draw yarn] through all loops on hook, chain 1 (V-stitch made),
     
    * YO hook, draw up a loop in same chain as last stitch, skip next chain, draw up a loop in next chain, YO and [draw yarn] through all loops on hook, chain 1 (V-stitch made), repeat from * across, end dc in last chain -- 32 V-sts [total].  Turn.
     
    Row 2:  ["wrong", or back, side of fabric]  Chain 3 (counts as dc, ch-1), YO hook, insert hook from back to front in first ch-1 space, draw up a loop, insert hook from back to front in next ch-1 space, draw up a loop, YO and [draw yarn] through all loops on hook, chain 1 (reverse V-stitch made),
     
    * YO hook, insert hook from back to front in same ch-1 space as last stitch, draw up a loop, insert hook from back to front in next space, draw up a loop, YO and [draw yarn] through all loops on hook, chain 1 (reverse V-stitch made), repeat from * across, end dc in 2nd chain of turning chain -- 32 reverse V-sts.  Turn.
     
    Row 3:  Chain 3 (counts as dc, ch-1), YO hook, draw up a loop in first ch-1 space, draw up a loop in next ch-1 space, YO hook and [draw yarn] through all loops on hook, chain 1,
     
    * YO hook, draw up a loop in same ch-1 space as last stitch, draw up a loop in next ch-1 space, YO hook and [draw yarn] through all loops on hook, chain 1, repeat from * across, end dc in 2nd chain of turning chain [-- 32 V-sts].
     
    Rows 4 and 5:  Repeat rows 2 and 3.  End off.  Weave back seam.
     
    CROWN:  From wrong side, join 2 strands of [yarn] in seam [of Cuff just completed], chain 3 (counts as sc, ch-1), * sc in ch-1 space, chain 1, repeat from * around, end sc in last dc -- 32 sc.  Do not turn; mark end of round.
     
    Next Round:  * Chain 1, sc in next ch-1 space, repeat from * around...
     
    Repeat last round until piece measures 10 inches from start.
     
    [NOTE:  Although it says to not turn your work at this point, the instructions don't specify whether or not to join each round, but if one is to repeat the last round exactly, one would assume the need to join those rounds each time around.  I suppose however, that one might prefer to work continuously around without joining -- it would probably look nicer that way, in fact.  Just keep marking the ends of each round as you go, so that you can stop after finishing a full round...]
     
    SHAPE TOP:  Next Round:  * Sc in each of next 3 stitches, skip next stitch, repeat from * around -- 48 sc [sts].
     
    Next Round:  Sc in each sc around.
     
    Next Round:  * Skip next stitch, sc in each of next 2 stitches, repeat from * around -- 32 [sc] sts.
     
    Next Round:  Sc in each sc around.
     
    Next Round:  * Skip next stitch, sc in next stitch, repeat from * around -- 16 [sc] sts...
     
    Repeat last 2 rounds once [more] -- 8 [sc] sts.  End off; draw [or gather, remaining 8] stitches together [at center top of crown].  Fasten [yarn end] securely on wrong side [of fabric]...
     
    Steam-press lightly [I never do that, lol; the only time my knitwear garments ever get blocked, is when they are laundered].  Fold cuff to right side.
     
    Finished!  :D
     
    The thick Cuff of this little hat keeps the ears nice and toasty, and lends it a sort of "up-town" style (imho).

    Vintage KNITTED Mushroom Beret Pattern

    Now, for the knitted version of the vintage "Mushroom" Beret.  This cover of Ladies' Home Journal, Fall / Winter 1975 shows the actual beret for this pattern which I will reproduce here because I like it so much. 
     
    Instructions for this beret are given on page 99 of this issue of LHJ
     
    One Size Fits All.

    Row 6:  Knit
     
    Continue to increase 8 stitches by yo [yarn-over] every other row, having 1 knit stitch more between increases until 16 increase rows in all have been worked -- [totaling] 137 stitches [at that point].
     
    Work even in Garter St until 8" from center [measured along the curve from crown to bottom edge]...
     
    Band:  with No. 8 needles, K 1, * K 2 tog [decreasing]; repeat from * -- 69 sts [at this point]...
     
    Work in K 1 / P 1 ribbing for [a total of 6] rows
     
    Bind off in ribbing [pattern]
     
    FINISHING:  Weave [i.e. sew] back seam... Sc [with size "G" crochet hook] over ["large"] plastic ring until completely covered.  [Size of ring is not given, but I assume it is the type of ring used when making crocheted buttons, so I will leave the choice of size up to you -- I would use one no wider than 1 inch in diameter].  Fasten off, leaving a long strand.  Turn outer edge to inside and weave together [forming the crocheted button].  Sew [the crocheted button you just made] to top [center, or crown] of beret.  DO NOT BLOCK OR PRESS.
     
    As you can see, this is a very simple (although plenty charming) hat pattern.  It is worked in rows with a seam at the back -- not rounds -- so you can make it easily on straight knitting needles... The original instructions provide for color changes which would duplicate the hat shown in the photo above, but I left the color choices and stripe patterns up to you.
     
    I feel very fortunate to have found instructions for my favorite type of beret in both, crocheted and knitted techniques.  I have also recorded the crocheted version here, elsewhere in this blog:
