OK, I'm wanting to make my brother a scarf with a picture on the end of it. He's trying to start up a dog training business and he's based the logo on one of the dogs he used to have. I've been trying to get a graph right for this for 2 weeks now and I'm having no success. I think the curves are throwing me off. Can anybody help me? Are there any graphing gurus out there?... Here's the logo if that helps.

I'd use knitpro. I tested the image and it works better if it's jsut two colors but here's the link:

If it comes out to big (each square is a stitch) resize the original image and do the process again. Smiley

The logo is so curvy, you might be better off with an applique. Ultrasuede would work.

I was using knitpro befor but haveing no luck, So I tried again and Opened up paint and a graph paper image and this is what I've got.

I think, I might need to fiddle with the top right side some though.

If you have any graph paper I'd take what you have and fill in the squares on it. I had to play quite a bit to get the one graph I've done to work.
