Ms Jewell of Blackburn wants to knit a jumper with butterflies on it. Well, I've looked and can't find anything suitable - so why not design and knit your own? Use graph paper and draw out two wing shapes - you could even make them circles. Place them side by side and fit them on to the front of a jumper. Knit them in a contrasting colour. When finished, the body - which connects the two wings - may be embroidered on. And there you have it! more > Diversions 610 Reviews 620 LITTLEWOODS GROUP SUPERSAVERS p185 Reviews Your Money Adverts A-Z Index

She says she's knitted my Turtle designs and her three boys loved them. Mickey Mouse is not a pattern available in the shops, but I do think he appeared in a book called Disney Knits by Melinda Cross. Try asking in your local library or woolshop. It's a hardback with loads of Disney character knitting patterns for you to try. more > Diversions 610 Reviews 620 Reviews Your Money Adverts A-Z Index

The problem is though, the finished garment has a severe twist in it, due to the twist given to the yarn when manufactured. How can she solve this? I think it can be done by knitting with two cones of yarn and knitting two rows from yarn one, followed by two from yarn two. Alternatively, use one or two strands with a conventional yarn. more > Diversions 610 Reviews 620 Reviews Your Money Adverts A-Z Index
