I come to you beloved Craftster knitters on bent knee. I need help.
My cousin has enlisted me to knit her a school sweater, she would be satisfied with a regular pullover, but of course, being the insane person I am I really want it to be cooler than that. I want retro varsity sweater.
I haven't been able to find a pattern, unless my cousin was a dog, in which case I would be set. So, since cousin is human I'm struggling.
Has anyone found a pattern similar to the pics below in a book or perhaps online? I would shower you with praise if that was the case.
Wow. Thanks for all the great comments guys, *huggles craftster*
I'll gladly post my charts...however...I have to redraw them, as I was having problems with them fitting on the sweater and not being all wonky so I was constantly redrawing them. You will not be able to understand my charts, serious.
But I'll redraw next week when I'm on Reading Week and post them!
As a child, I was slightly obsessed with Nintendo Duck Hunt. It was fantastic.
Years later, I used my new obsession, knitting, to relive my Dunt Hunt days.
Here's the results, enjoy!!
Notes: -sweater took just over a month of off and on knitting -used old sweater pattern, drew up charts myself (minus the dog, which I found online) -first time knitting with colour - intarsia AND stranded! wooo!
Instead of writing my essay, I stenciled a shirt. Perfect use of my time!
I got the stencil by Googling "Lily Stencil", and I'm pretty sure it's copyrighted...*insert collar tug*. I used the freezer paper method and my usual stenciling method (stencil black outline, hand paint details).
