Willy warmers galore

Willy warmers seem to be my current Best sellers.

Fine with me. Fun to make and don’t take too long.

Had two Cthulhu and one cigar / boob willy warmer. Fun! 🙂

 

Still working on the second Cthulhu, needed a little break though 🙂

Barefoot sandal, English pattern

From Handmade

Also called ‘Sand Sandals’, ‘Water Sandals’ or ‘Slave Sandals’

I’ve searched ravelry for a pattern, but the only one I could find was this one here.

It was not what I had in mind, so I came up with my own idea.

I used Pearl yarn (Lace weight yarn?) and Needle size 1.5(US) / 2.5mm

(I think, it would work with sock yarn too, maybe you need to adjust the cast on a bit,

less stitches with thicker yarn)

15.03.2013  –  Added another (nicer?) beginning:

Cast on the necessary stitches on 1 two pointed needle

(The necessary stitches depend on how you want to close the sandal around your ankle. I love the metal clasps with easy opening and closing. If you don’t have those, cast on more stitches to tie a knot or even longer to wrap it up around your leg and then tie a knot at your calf)

1Row K2, P2, turn

1Row Knit, turn

1Row K2, yo, K2tog (this would be a good place to add your Bling at the yo), turn

1Row knit, turn

Bind off a quarter of the stitches on one side, finish the row, turn

Bind off a Quarter of the stitches, finish the row
Start the pattern
*Purl 1, Knit 2 together*     3 stitches before end of the row: Purl 1, lift stitch back to left needle, slip 2nd last stitch over it and slip stitch back to right needle, Purl last stitch

Wrong side row: K3 *yo, K2tog*

Repeat pattern until 3st remain

With these 3 stitches knit an I-Cord until you reach the toes,

keep working I-Cord until you can make a loop around your toe,

bind off and sow it together to form a loop

Weave in the ends,

finished 🙂
I put some Clips and a clasp to the two ends, you should be able to get them in any handicraft store.

This makes for much easier putting on / taking off (and looks nicer?)

 

From Handmade

Old pattern / first try:

Cast on 48St

distribute to 4 double pointed needles

Knit 2Rnd

1 Rnd *K2, yo, K2tog* (in this round you can add Bling where you make the Yarnover)

Knit 2Rnd

Cast off / Bind off half the stitches, leave the rest on 1 needle

1 Rnd *K2, yo, K2tog*

(Pattern start)



Purl 1 Rnd (K2tog 2nd and 3rd st & 3st before end of the row: Purl 1, lift stitch back to left needle, slip 2nd last stitch over it and slip stitch back to right needle, Purl last stitch)

1Rnd K3 *yo, K2tog*

Knit in pattern until 3st remain

Stockinette stitch or knit an I-Cord until you reach the toes,

measure in between,

keep working Stockinette stitch or I-Cord until you can make a loop around your toe, fasten with 3 stitches to the main cord (or Cast off and sow it on), Weave in the ends, finished 🙂

My shoe size is a European 39. Increase or decrease the cast on a bit, depending on size and yarn used.
