I saw this rib pattern in the Passap Club patterns Number 11. It is a beautiful rib. It is made with the needles in a 2by2 rib using AX/N with both arrow keys pushed in: automatic pattern. I used a yarn I had by Bramwell called Hot Pink duo spun. It is a nice light weight acrylic. I decided to make a cowl scarf . I made it 48 inches and it is perfect. I wanted it around the neck for warmth. This is a gift for someone. I will explain the pusher set up and my tensions in the pattern information. This will make a great quick Christmas gift that will not take you longer than an hour to make.

Here are my directions

Snowman Ornament


IMG_20151201_172058789~2My sister is putting a lot of snowmen on her Christmas tree this year. I saw this snowman on Pinterest with just the glass ball and white snow inside and the painted face. Well, I did not have snow so I used salt. Stop laughing!! Then I decided to try knitting a little black top hat. I  think it came out cute. I used 2/24 yarn and I made the brim on the Brother 940 electronic and I hung that on the Passap machine and knitted circular to finish the top part.  It took no time at all. I used a 1&1/2 inch glass ball. I painted the eyes, mouth and nose . If you don’t want to knit circular I have directions for knitting straight on the single bed.Here is how I did it . This is a good lesson for short rowing for beginners.
