A friend of mine has found a crochet Dalek (Dr. Who) that she would like me to make her for Christmas.  I have agreed, it seems like an easy enough project, though I have found some mistakes which I have been meaning to bring up with the pattern author.  Even with those mistakes, the pattern is fairly easy to follow.  And now I have begun to consider making other stuffed animals and what not.  🙂

The project page can be found here: Mist Panther’s Dalek 1

Pattern here: (Raverly) A. M. Downs Dalek and here: (Etsy, free) A. M. Downs Dalek

I am currently using Caron Simply Soft Eco color Spring Moss, it’s a grey color with green tint to it.  Pictures will come in time.

Christmas Sweaters

Pattern:  Amused

Source: Raverly

Yarn: Caron Simply Soft, Lavender Blue.  315 yd/skein, 3 skiens

Needles: size 9 circular and 5 size 9 dpn

Size: Small, Medium, and Large

Dates: Lena – Sept 15th to Oct 14th 2010, Janette’s – Oct. 15th to Nov. 6th, 2010, Tina’s – Nov. 7th to Dec. 7th 2010

Modifications:  Collar pattern modified, sleaves are full long sleaves.


The collar patten did this weird thing where the cable went over different stitchs then in the body.  For Janette’s and Tina’s sweater I modified the collar pattern so that the cross was where it should be.  Not certain why the designer did it the way they did, it looks absolutly weird and is unnessary, the modification doesn’t really change all that much, besided how it is written.  The change is simple, instead of crossing a k2, p2 under/over a k2, p2 I cross a p2, k2 with a p2, k2 when the cross is suppose to happen.  This lines everything up correctly.


Row 4: Sl 1 knitwise, K2 [(follow like C8L except p2, k2) (like C8R except p2, k2) p2, k2. repeat 7 times, k1.

If need be I can write out the row fully and correctly.
