The Knitting of Strange Objects
Ryan of Mossy Cottage Knits Fame often writes about strange and interesting knitting objects she's found on the Internet. I think my newly created pattern is next for a feature!
I present for you, the knitted Gear Stick Cover! monica, notice the Gu!
And a close-up of this wonder created for my friend Julie after her dog nibbled on her car's gear stick:
Since this is the first pattern I've ever created on my own, I'm quite chuffed!
Here is the pattern for all the other knitters out there lusting after my new yet strange creation!
Needles: US 7
Yarn : Worsted-Weight. I did use Debbie Bliss Casmerino for this one though.
Gauge: No need to worry about gauge here.
CO 34 stitches. Work 2 ½ inches in 1x1 rib. If you want a fold-over look, knit 5 inches in 1x1 rib. Knit next 3 inches in stockinette stitch. Begin decreases. *Knit 2, knit 2 tog* Repeat across row. Purl 1 row. *Knit 1, knit 2 tog* Repeat across row. Purl 1 row. Knit 2 tog across next row. Cut yar, leaving a tail about 12”. Using a tapestry needle, thread tail through remaining 10 stitches. Pull tight closing mitten top and fasten off. Use remainder of tail to sew gear stick cover seam using mattress stitch. Weave in loose ends and Enjoy!
Today I leave you with a gratuitous shot of Destiny looking so cute while sleeping with her paw over her eyes.
