DIY Knitted Tadaa! Scarf Tutorial and Free Pattern from Eilen Tein here. She’s using an extended loop technique which I’ve never done which creates tons of buttonholes to position her buttons in different ways. These were knitted on 7mm needles or around size US 10.5 to 11 US. *There is a translator on site and a pattern in English at the very bottom.

So remember that knitting emergency I had a while back?

I pulled my baby, the very first sweater I ever knitted, out to wear, and found two holes in the back. THE HORROR!! Thanks to some emotional support from all of you and the step by step instructions I found online, I was able to repair the holes!! Hurrah!!!

I actually did it a few weeks ago, but am just getting around to posting the pics, because, you know, midterms.

In the first pic, I stabilized the area with DPNs. Since I didn’t have a darning egg, this was extremely helpful. It kept the stitches from sliding around and getting away from me and making the problem worse.

Then I took a regular needle and thread and stitched all the loose stitches together and sort of drew the edges of the holes together, which is the second pic.

Finally, I took out the DPNs and used my tapestry needle and leftover yarn to duplicate stitch over the whole are and a few rows/stitches on either side. Then I tied off and wove in the ends.

It looks a little messy on the inside of the sweater, but as you can see from the third pic, from the outside, you can’t even tell there was ever a hole there. And no one will see the inside when I’m wearing it, so who cares?

Plus, I feel so proud of myself now :)

Here’s the tutorial I used. It’s from Twist Collective and is amazing - written instructions and pictures for four different darning methods:
