Mehera’s

“Mehera’s” is what I call this style of scarves:

They are knit double stranded with one variegated and one very soft yarn,

needles # US 13, with 18 or 20 or 22 sts, in rib 1:1,

and knit one below, which makes them wonderful and soft.

It takes a little planing in advance (to learn more look at Laura Bryant about yarn repetitions),

but after that it’s just knit and see what the yarn is doing.

Hobo 2017

‘Hobo 2017’ is a simple pattern, that is meant mostly for home, as a ‘cover-all’ hat.

It’s knitted double stranded on giant US19 needles.

Start with magic loop, inc in garter st till approx. 30 sts,

then knit to desired height.

They are much fun to knit & wear, soft & cozy!

All of Me, Hats

After adding the scarves of this series on (previous entry), I realized the hats & boxes were not up yet.

There are 2 styles for the hat. The easy one is knit upward, with carried rib to give elasticity:

The other style is more complicated:

The top is knit first, then add sts and knit the other 4 symbols downward.

Both hats can be done in double knit, this one is cotton:

All of Me, scarf

‘All of Me’ is the name I give the projects containing Meher Baba’s symbols. Apart for the box and hats, here are some scarves versions. The images are simplified versions of Meher Baba Samadi, the threshold, Mastery in servitude, and Baba’s hand writing of the word ‘I’.

I just LOVE knitting these patterns.

Knit-wise: knitted in a mixture of double stranded, st.st, and double knit. I use needles # 13US, and let the sts be very loose. The scarves are very big, almost a mini blanket.

Knitting the air/the in-between

Sometimes I like to knit not the object itself, but just the air around it.

Below is a ‘treeless’ rendering (left side) of the tree on the right. I avoided knitting the branches, and just knit the shapes around them (much as possible).

The two bellow are done with a similar idea, treating the shapes as abstract and mixing the negative and positive images:

 

Back to the top of the page, these are 2 scarves with Meher Baba’s signature:

I used 2 colors, one for the shapes created below the signature, and one for ‘the air above it’. This is about how His signature cuts the space. The scarf starts with the M itself as part of the inc.
