I know this is pretty late but I wanted to make sure I finished this post and post it today inshallah! I have made myself a hat, as well as a pillow case, which is a real learning experience that required a lot of improvising, and I have three WIPs that I’ve been working on. So let’s get to it!
What I thought was going to be a really simple project turned into a brain-wreaking experience. If you want to know how I made this pillow case, do tell me. But I am warning you, DO NOT try to make a pillow case for a standard sized pillow with one yard of fabric if you are trying to make a flap to cover the other side of the pillow, like I did. That is what made it really hard to figure out. Now I need to make another pillow case, but I learned my lesson, and this time inshallah I will get more than one yard
I’m not following any kind of pattern, I just cast on – stitches and started knitting. After a few trials and errors, I figured out that it is easier for me to knit with this yarn than to crochet with it. It is so smooth to knit mashallah, and the rows knitted feel so soft! For now, it is just something that I pick up once in a while when I want a change from crocheting, and I’ll have to wait until I decide to be finished with it to decide what to do with it inshallah.
