Namaskaram - salutations I dedicate my blog to the enormous art lovers across the globe I love knitting so much that I have started a blog for knitting.Knitting is a job that I will like to go on.Through knitting I breathe life into many people's life. It is knitting time. When I want to relax I do it with knitting. I am a knitting buff.I love to do knitting on various topics. There is no way that you can stop me doing knitting.I am born with a flare for knitting.My face brightens once I touch the knitting needs.The electronic media has helped knitting to travel across the world.Every stitch made will talk about how knitting has influenced people.I have done some and would like to share it with you. Some patterns have been taken from free knitting sites. Some designs have been created by me. Many a times I have modified the patterns to suite my requirements. Finally I can say that I breathe knitting, I talk knitting, I walk knitting - a total knitaholic

Kadamba maalai [ Mixed garland]

Hi friends , please do look at my new creation - kadamba maalai. This maalai can adore any idol or deity/photo of your choice.

Yarns: 2 mts in each shade of white, red, yellow, purple and green and 1 mts each for pompoms
French knitter set by Pony - 1 set

Pompom set by Pony

1. Tie 1 mts yarns together and make a small ball with colors of your choice. I followed this sequence- white[ malli poo], red [rose or aralli], yellow [ chamandi or thazampoo], purple [ vaada malli] and green [ maruvu or marichozhundu]
2. Cast on 4 stitches with the white yarn on to the French knitter and knit all the colors and bind off. This will have the apperance similar to I-cord

3. Make a colored pompom using the big [yellow] pompom ring. Ensure that you cover all color yarns . This will be used as a center piece
4. Make small pompoms using 2 colors in the small pompom[blue] ring. This will be used between two colors.
5. Take the begining and end of the cord/rope and tie it together. Make sure it is secured properly. Then attach the big pompom to the centre.This will become the centre of the garland.
5. Now you can tie all the small pompom to the intersection[between] two colors in the cord.
This will look like as per below. Now you have a beautiful garland.
