YouKnits lace example diagonal scarf

March 2011
This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download
This is an example pattern for YouKnits. I **haven't tested it yet**, it's just meant as an inspiration for you! If you have questions or suggestions or want to share your project, please come to the [group unikatissima][2]. You're very welcome! :) As for a **discount** on the prices, please see *discount* further down this page. ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> about YouKnits** Design your own lace by simply combining YouKnits to your personal and probably unique lace pattern. All individual Youknits will always match both horizontally and vertically (although I must admit that some look better near each other than others ;-)). Mostly the patterns will flow into each other and you won't be able to tell where one YouKnit ends and the other starts afterwards :) You can find the [basic set][3] and the [how-to][4] here at ravelry and the patterns by [searching for *YouKnits*][5] or looking at my [ravelry designs page][6] or [ravelry store][7], see also *how to use YouKnits* further down this page. ---------------------------------------------------------------- **>> about the pictures** From top to bottom: - two pictures of this pattern made with YouKnits from the [basic set][8] only (i.e. all YouKnits are for free), - two pictures of this pattern made with different YouKnits (i.e. some YouKnits must be purchased), - a picture of the YouKnits pattern composition for you to use, e.g. in the YouKnits designer *(read more about further down)*. All pictures were made with the [YouKnits designer][9], see also *WYSIWYK - YouKnits designer* further down this page. ***Note:*** about the YouKnits distribution charts: *003c #00* means YouKnit 003 found in set #00 in [YouKnits designer][10]. A set in [YouKnits designer][11] is one of the slides on the right side. ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> about the patterns** The PDF files you can download here are made with the [YouKnits designer][12], see also *WYSIWYK - YouKnits designer* further down this page. ***Note:*** of the YouKnits used for the patterns **some may be for sale**! ---------------------------------------------------------------- **>> about this pattern** This pattern is the scarf (= smaller) version of the [YouKnits lace example diagonal shawl][13]. I admit that the calculation of diagonal patterns like this is a little tricky, but perhaps my [online pythagoras calculator][14] can be of help, where you can enter the length of two sides of a triangle and get the length of the third. ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> try before you buy** To see whether you like/understand my patterns you can download the [basic set][15] for free, containing 8 more square YouKnits and all triangle YouKnits. That's why this example also includes patterns that are made solely with the [basic set][16]. If you have still problems or questions afterwards, see point *questions about (using) the YouKnits* further down on this page. ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> discount** Although you can knit beautiful items with only the use of free patterns of the [basic set][17], it is possible that you want to purchase YouKnits, too. Therefore here how the discount should work: If you have a certain number of **YouKnits in your cart**, the total of the cart should be reduced as follows: - 5 or more Youknits should reduce the total of the YouKnits in the cart by 30%, - 20 or more Youknits should reduce the total of the YouKnits in the cart by 40%, - 50 or more Youknits should reduce the total of the YouKnits in the cart by 50%. This is all very new to me and if you have problems with the discount, please send me a personal message, so that we can find out what happened. Read also about *try before you buy* in the previous paragraph. ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> how to use YouKnits** I offer two instructional files for free: - the [how-to][18], where I tried to describe in full detail how to knit patterns of combined YouKnits and - eine [deutsche Kurzanleitung][19] (a short German how-to). *Before starting* your first personal YouKnits design I suggest strongly that you **read the [how-to][20] until the end**, that will (hopefully!) make a lot of things clear :) Additionally you may also want to download the [basic set][21], which is free, too, because it contains 8 more square YouKnits and all triangle YouKnits, that you would need e.g. when knitting a triangle shawl. You can find the other YouKnits patterns by [searching for *YouKnits*][22] or looking at my [ravelry designs page][23] or [ravelry store][24]. ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> WYSIWYK - YouKnits designer** *(what you see is what you knit ;-))* Because I find it very difficult to imagine how a repeated/combined pattern will look from charts or text instructions, a friend made us the YouKnits designer that you can reach via [][25]. ***Note:*** I purchased the domain [**][26] just now, in the PDF files I still give the address of my website ([][27]). Both addresses are valid, but I find [**][28] easier to memorize ;-) The **use of the [YouKnits designer][29] is free**, it will provide you with a PDF file containing - a picture of your design, - a YouKnits distribution chart of your design and - a list of the individual YouKnits that you've used in your personal design with links to where you can get them and their price. ***Note:*** As for the price information: I've implemented a discount scheme to reduce the total, see point *discount* further up on this page. ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> knit the pattern** Although you can directly start to knit the pattern, I suggest that you knit swatches before and calculate whether you like the size that you would get ;-) Perhaps it would be nicer if you design your own personal patterns, possibly with the help of the [YouKnits designer][30]. In fact, these patterns are just meant as inspiration for you and **I haven't tested them yet**. Be creative! :) ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> what (else) to knit** The swatches that I knitted for the [YouKnits designer][31] were very nearly square, so I browsed the internet for patterns made from squares and devised others myself and that's what I came up with: ***accessories:*** - [YouKnits lace example diagonal scarf][32] - [YouKnits lace example diagonal shawl][33] - [YouKnits lace example shawl][34] - [YouKnits lace example shawl triangle 1][35] - [YouKnits lace example shawl triangle 2][36] ***bags:*** - [YouKnits lace example bag 1][37] - [YouKnits lace example bag 2][38] - [YouKnits lace example bag 3][39] ***garments:*** - [YouKnits lace example sweater 1a][40] - [YouKnits lace example sweater 1b][41] - [YouKnits lace example sweater 2][42] - [YouKnits lace example sweater 3][43] - [YouKnits lace example sweater 4][44] - [YouKnits lace example top with shawl][45] - [YouKnits lace example vest][46] - [YouKnits lace example large vest 1][47] - [YouKnits lace example large vest 2][48] ***homedecor:*** - [YouKnits lace example placemats][49] - [YouKnits lace example pillows][50] *"Where to start? Where to start?"* ;-)) Well, I started with the [YouKnits vest][51] and am now knitting the [YouKnits scarf][52] as a gift. ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> questions about (using) the YouKnits** If you have problems or questions, please look at the [group unikatissima][53] here at ravelry: - either someone else had the same question before, than you will be answered immediately, - or ask your question [there][54], because someone else may have the same problem in the future. But of course you can also send me a personal message :) ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> terms of use** By using my patterns **you agree to my terms of use** which you can find on my [website][55] and in my PDF files (although not in the PDF files provided by the [YouKnits designer][56]!). ***Hinweis für Deutsche***: Für Dich gilt auch: **Du stimmst meinen Nutzungsbedingungen zu**, wenn Du meine Muster nutzt. Ich habe sie auf meiner [Webseite][57] auch auf deutsch hinterlegt. ----------------------------------------------------------------- **>> errata** Well, everything is still brand-new, so there are no errata's yet (March 31, 2011), but although I triple checked everything, I may (*possibly*! ;-)) have made mistakes. - If you find an error, please check the [errata page][58] of the [group unikatissima][59] here at ravelry. - If you are the first to have found it, please be so kind as to send me a personal message. And now I hope that you enjoy designing and knitting with YouKnits :) [1]: [2]: [3]: [4]: [5]: [6]: [7]: [8]: [9]: [10]: [11]: [12]: [13]: [14]: [15]: [16]: [17]: [18]: [19]: [20]: [21]: [22]: [23]: [24]: [25]: [26]: [27]: [28]: [29]: [30]: [31]: [32]: [33]: [34]: [35]: [36]: [37]: [38]: [39]: [40]: [41]: [42]: [43]: [44]: [45]: [46]: [47]: [48]: [49]: [50]: [51]: [52]: [53]: [54]: [55]: [56]: [57]: [58]: [59]:
