I know the very basics of kippah crocheting, but I really want to try to make a Dark Side of the Moon kippah for my boyfriend. Does anyone know any good sites where I might learn how to make something like this?:



Excuse the terrible illustration. I made it in about five minutes in MS paint. In the real version, the rainbow stripes would all be touching and actually look like, well, a rainbow.

Any help at all would be fantastic! Smiley

That's a very cool idea! I can't offer you much guidance, but my first thought is that you'd have to use really thin thread to get that much detail in. Am I kind of right in thinking that they'd normally be made with only about 15 rounds? I think you'd be hard pressed to get that much detail into such a small space...

There must be resources somewhere on the net for generating circular stitch grids... The closest I found is Knitpro's image generator, but that only works for rectangular grids...

Good luck!

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

Hmm, thanks.
I'm pretty sure it's more than 15 rounds. They're supposed to be big enough so that when you fold them in quarters, they cover at least three of your knuckles. If I can't find anyone to teach me how to crochet the pattern, I might try crocheting a plain black one and embroidering the design on, though I'd rather crochet the whole thing. Smiley
