Dress Form!

So I need to alter my Red Queen skirt that I reconstructed from the bridesmaid dress, but I couldn't very well do it with I was wearing it, and I was afraid I'd screw it up if I just tried to cut it and put in a zipper while it was off. So this happened.

I bought a roll of paper tape, which I used all of, to make a dress form. . . It looks like I'm naked. Or one of those wooden pose-able art dolls. :P

After my boyfriend cut it off me I reinforced it with more tape. I still need to spray paint it, fill it with something, and get a stand for it.

It still works though. ^_^ More pictures when I finish.

  1. You'll have to help me make one, though I was given blocking boards. It'd be so much easier putting it on a Coley shaped dress form and spraying it with water.

Staghorn Scarf Pattern

Staghorn                                  
The yarn you use and needle size probably doesn't make a lick of a difference. I used Vanna White's line of yarn because I loved the color, it was super soft, and cheap. It took 1 1/2 balls of yarn. I used size 10 1/2 needles (6.5 mm).
Abbreviations: k: knit p: purl sl1kw: slip 1st stitch knit-wise sl1pw: slip 1st stitch purl-wise BC: place 2sts on a cable needle in the back, k2, k2 from cable needle FC: place 2sts on a cable needle in the front, k2, k2 from cable needle
Cast on 30 stitches.
Row 1 (WS andall other wrong side rows): sl1pw, k2, p2, k2, p16, k2, p2, k2, p1. Row 2: sl1kw, p2, k2, p2, k4, BC, FC, k4, p2, k2, p2, k1.  Row 4: sl1kw,  p2, k2, p2, k2, BC, k4, FC, k2, p2, k2, p2, k1. Row 6: sl1kw,  p2, k2, p2, BC, k8, FC, p2, k2, p2, k1.
Repeat rows 1-6 until desired length.* Cast off while following the WS of the pattern, it looked most natural casting off after Row 2.
