Moi aussi au début, je ne comprenais absolument rien aux explications des modeles Phildar! Surtout les 1x2 ,2x2 trucs comme tu dis. Je me suis pris la tête la premiere fois, et j'ai demandé conseils sur un forum de tricoteuses, heureusement qu'internet existe.
Très joli cette brassiere; bravo!


SO Cute! Gosh, I want one just like it for me to wear! Love the shawl collar. Adorable--well done!


Contente que ce cake t'ait plu (ainsi que bébé !)... Je ne connaissais pas ton blog qui est très sympa ...


Your baby will be such a stylish little one. The toggles are oh-so-trendy. xoxo


Ohhhhh...lemon cake sounds so good right about now!!

He looks so cute! Not only will your baby be stylish, but you'll also be able to save money by making your own clothes. Nice!


Dumpling is so cute!


The sweaters are so pretty!! I love them.


I have become a Phildar junky. I even have gotten to the point where I explain the directions to my mother in law. If you have any questions at all, feel free to e me.

What I found annoying was the right side (endroit) and wrong side (envers) stitches (knit and purl respectively) mixed in with right (endroit) and wrong (envers) sides of what you are actually knitting!

For your readers as you've already figured it out.... :-) Don't think of the x in 1 x 2 as an x, think of it as meaning "fois".

So 1 x 2, is Une fois deux mailles (stitches) that you'll be increasing or decreasing.

Cheers. Loving the baby jumpers!


That cake looks delicious! Is there any chance you could put the directions in English with US measurements?


The cake sounds lovely,and the sweater is divine. I love when little boys look like little men.



Here's the conversion:

Though rough, I rarely use cups anymore as most of the recipes I use are written in grams.

Ingredients :
- 3/4 cups of flour,
- 1/2 cups of butter,
- 1/2 cup of sugar,
- 4 eggs,
- 2 lemons,
- 1 packet of baking powder, I used a little less than 11g which is roughly 2 teaspoons.

Preparation :
1 - Melt butter using a double boiler or the microwave.

2 - Mix the eggs and sugar to until they are mixed well. Then add the flour little by little along with the baking powder. Mix well. Add melted butter. Mix.

3 - Wash lemons and press them complete of their juice and add the juice to the mixture.

4 - Pre-wash the lemon zests and add small pieces to the mixture to taste.

5 - Mix the entire cake mixture well and pour into a non stick cake pan. Bake for 45 minutes in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees Farenheit.
