Thanks but no, it's not "Purl." It's all black and it looks like the person that drew it never lifted the pen at all, like it's all one line. Except for the curly cue hair and the pink yarn.

This pic is sort of the same style but the one I'm looking for doesn't have a lot of color like this one.

I totally thought it was Val Kilmer from The Doors too!

I want to make one with Clive Owen on it. This is the pic I'm going to use:

134  Help with spiral hat pattern? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Lilyvanilli on: November 15, 2004 06:35:13 PM
So I'm knitting this hat here:



and I've run into a problem. The pattern has you knit 7 rows of each color and you increase at the beginning of every other row (1, 3, 5) and decrease at the beginning of every other row (2, 4, 6) so it comes out to be a sort of parallelogram. You bind off and then pick up 3 stitches in each stripe along one of the long ends (42 sts total) and then the next 2 rows are decrease rows for head shaping. The only problem I have is that the pattern doesn't tell you which color to use to pick up these 42 sts and knit these 2 decrease rows. I started the parallelogram with white and ended it with blue. I'm going to do the cuff in white but these 42 sts are totally seperate from that. Help? Please? Here's the pattern:

 
Materials:
Use No. 8 knitting needles
Any worsted weight yarn (2 coordinating colors). 2 oz. of each color will make a cap.

Cast on 30 stitches. Knit 6 rows, increasing one stitch at the beginning of every odd row and decreasing one stitch at the beginning of every even row. (Inc. rows 1, 3, 5 and Dec. rows 2, 4, 6).

Row 7: Change yarn and knit rows 1, 3, 5; purl rows 2, 4, 6 doing increases on knit rows and decreases on purl rows.
Continue pattern until 7 stripes of each color are done. Cast off.

On one long edge, pick up and knit 3 stitches in each stripe (42 stitches).
Row 1: Knit 1, Knit 2 tog. across row.
Row 2: Knit 2 tog. across row. Cut yarn and thread thru needle. Pull yarn thru remaining stitches and fasten off.

Cuff: On other long edge, pick up and knit 6 stitches in each stripe (84 stitches). Knit 1, Purl 1 for 2-3 inches. Bind off.

Sew side seam and make pompom for top and attach to hat.

** The size of this cap changes according to needle size and yarn.


What color would you use?

 Huh

135  Hooded Poncho Help in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Lilyvanilli on: October 15, 2004 10:50:45 PM
I saw a lady wearing this poncho today and I fell in love with it but I have no idea how I would go about knitting it. So I was wondering if anyone of you could give me some help with figuring out a pattern. Here's the pic:



Thank you!

I just finished the Chinese Charm bag. I used a multi-colored Red Heart yarn instead of the yarn the pattern called for and I added a little heart charm (which you can't really see because my cell phone camera sucks) with my friend's name on it (I made the bag for her). Here's the pics:

It's probably more like what you are looking for. Sorry for the last reply.

The best I could find was this: http://www.yarnforward.com/bomber.html



You could make it shorter, add cables along the side, and turn the collar into a hood. That's a bit of improvising but as long as you know you're basics and incorporate some other patterns into it you should be fine.

Here's a pattern with a hood: http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/lionbrand/index.fcgi?page=http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/khs-hoodsweater.html

And here's one with cables: http://www.vintageous.com/knit1.htm

I hope this helps. Smiley

I like Frill, Bad Penny, and the apron. I wish they would have included the pattern for this poncho instead of the handbag:
