1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / 8-bit Headache on: September 29, 2011 08:32:12 PM
Hello all!

I'm new here, so I'm hoping you'll all be gentle  Cheesy

Anyways, to the subject of the thread. I've been crocheting for over two years and it's high time I start working on developing my own pattern!
Here is the subject of my crochet devotion http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/nyan-cat-pop-tart-cat, Nyan Cat.
I began looking for a pattern for a Nyan cat scarf a few weeks ago and found a few decent ones, the most notable being Kelley Freeman's on ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/nyan-poptart-cat-scarf
However, I would much rather have Nyan cat captured in its original, 8-bit form. I mean, that's the cat I fell in love with.
Steps taken so far:
1. Obtained graph version from angeldeathwarrior's deviantart: http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2011/220/1/e/nyan_cat_by_angeldeathwarrior-d45umtq.jpg
2. Enlarged it in Excel, 1 pixel = a 4x4 sc square

I'm having issues with the method, however. I'm not quite sure how to work the increases and decreases.
With a normal inc/dec, you get an edge that looks sloped:
 ____
        \
          \______

But nyan cat is not slope-y! I need a way to make it go more like a block:
____
      |
      |________
       

Here's a method for dec in filet crochet that may work: http://www.smart-knit-crocheting.com/filet-crocheting.html (Example #1)
I haven't found a viable method for inc yet.
What do you all think would be best?
