Namaskaram - salutations

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

Thank You

Aakash Kandil - tutorial

Hi friends - when I posted my aaksh kandil , I said I would post the tutorial also.Hence presenting this for your reference.Please note that this is a knitted project.

1. First knit 4 squares .colors can be your choice. I chose , brown, yellow,purple and green.These will be titled into a diamond shape.

2.Create 4 triangles with colors of your choice. I knitted blue,grey,red and lemon yellow.

3. Create  4 I- cords with any colors. This will act as a rope.

Now comes the assembly part. You will need to stitch first the squares and the triangles.
a. one square and a triangle

now attach another set- 2 sets stitched

3 sets stitched

and finally the 4 th set being attached

Now stitch the first square and the last triangle. You will get a round object like this

Now attach the I-cord accordingly. one attached

Now all the 4 I-cords have been attached.

Take the ends of all the 4 I-cords and make a simple knot. This knot can function as an hanger.Now your Aakash kandil is ready to be hung any where you desire.

Hope this tutorial was helpful. This can be created with paper also.
