Hand-knit hoods make wonderful Christmas gifts for friends and family, and can be customized for size so they are also suitable for toddlers, children and adults, and can take the place of both a hat and sweater. If you are adding the hood to a pre-knitted garment, pick up a row of stitches along the sides and back of the garment's neckline.
If you are knitting a hood separately, cast on enough stitches for the desired length of the scarf bottom of the hood. For standalone hoods, continue to knit in garter stitch rows until the scarf is 4 inches wide. Bind off stitches until reaching the place on the length where the edge of the hood will begin, approximately one-third of the way around the garment. Knit across the remainder of the length.
Turn and bind off stitches in the opposite direction until reaching where the opposite edge of the hood will begin. Continue to knit in rows until the hood is the length desired to fit over the head. Bind off stitches. Finish off yarn by weaving it through the last row of stitches.
Turn the hood inside-out. Thread a tapestry needle with yarn and sew a seam across the top of the hood.

As the shy new kid in school, Bella was immediately befriended by a tight-knit group that briefed her on the ins-and-outs of life in Forks, WA and, you know, on that strange and ethereal-looking Cullen family. From Twilight to K-Pop! Of the Forks High grads, Justin Chon has one of the most diverse resumes: he has a degree in Business Administration from USC, co-owns SoCal apparel store Attic , works as an actor and director on a slew of indie projects, and is a serious regular on Dr. Their fanbase is known as the K-Poopers. Not quite the same ring as TwiHards. As of , Kendrick's reign as the only Twilight former cast member to earn an Oscar nom for Up in the Air is still going unchallenged — but K-Stew is getting there, we all know it.
According to Twilight lore, actor Michael Newton also auditioned for the part of Robert Cullen but had to settle for playing Mike Newton much like his character had to settle for being friendzoned by Bella. His current IMDb page is a mix of indie shorts and series one-offs, and his social media feed is a mix of pets, philanthropy and politics.
The ageless, ancient Cullen family somehow managed to"live" a "normal" life by pretending to sleep, eat, attend school and work like regular people. But Twilight never really explained why they chose ho-hum domesticity over… literally anything else. OK sure, they had that really nice house and Dr.

Carlisle stole them blood on the regs but still. As the patriarch and literal-creator of the Cullen family, Carlisle had so much control over his bloodlust that he chose to spend his days in the ER. Kind of a show-off move, right? Alex Karev. When not busy reading in a tree , Lutz can be seen flexing his muscles in macho movies like Tarzan , The Legend of Hercules , and The Expendables 3.
He's also a Coachella regular. Nikki Reed loves that vampire life so much, she married one Ian Somerhalder, of The Vampire Diaries — she and Ian are currently expecting their first child. Along with her acting work, she is devoted animal advocate and environmental activist. She recently teased a sustainable fashion brand , so stay tuned. Even at his Twilight peak, Jackson managed to multitask, playing guitar in the indie funk band Monkeys until , alongside his acting gigs.
I love the movies, but the books are where I fell in love. I like Alice, the hyper, stylish little pixie, but I love Edward! What inspired you to write a book and compile a collection of knitting patterns dedicated to vampires? Twilight inspired me, actually. I just thought the characters were so varied and interesting that they could inspire a lot of creative ideas for knitting projects.

It grew from there, since there are so many vampire stories to draw from. Vampire stories have been around for centuries, as has knitting — they seemed a perfect combination!

- Ravelry: Vampire Knits - patterns.
How did Ravelry. I mentioned my idea in a group on Ravelry and it was met with tons of enthusiasm from fellow knitters.
In a matter of days I had several designers on board and we got to work. I started my own group where we could brainstorm, call for test knitters, bounce ideas off each other, and call for designs. The designers who have contributed patterns to Vampire Knits include all ages and walks of life. How did you find, choose and bring together this diverse group of contributors?
I met most of them on Ravelry. When I called for submissions, they delivered! Oh, gosh! I love the Lore Hoodie by Cirilia Rose. I want to knit it for myself! I also think the Palm Readers are going to be on my Christmas list for friends. Where were the photos shot, and by whom?
