Here's the first intarsia design I made myself. I took some Beetlejuice lineart, elongated it (as a knitted image tends to squash) and used PC Stitch to make it into a graph. I then knitted it on my Bond Sweater Machine with the intarsia plate. This is actually the second time I knitted Beetlejuice, when I did the first one I used a pretty bad sweater pattern (its nice and big though). I later made another from a better pattern and added a hood. A friend of mine has it now.  Grin

Fantastic work!  I love the detail of the spider on the back!  I'm glad that this ended up in a good home.

Thanks guys. Smiley The spider is hanging from a web, the web is covered up in the photo by the hood.

edit: Removing link to the page on my site with the patterns on it because it also contains a link to a page where I sell things, to adhere to the rules here. So here instead is the relevant paragraph from that page including direct links:

If you want to make your own, you can get the design patterns here: front, back. You can view them by downloading PCStitch's Pattern Viewer for free. Designs are pre-reversed as one would need them if using a Bond machine. Ignore the neckline in favor of your chosen sweater pattern's neckline (as well as the design length, you may need to shorten it). The design is elongated vertically because otherwise it would look squashed, as I used Keyplate #2 and that is a tight gauge

OH MAN this is some epic Intarsia. Does the Intarsia keyplate make it easier to do?

I used to be such a fan of this cartoon...  Smiley

I guess its possible to do intarsia without the plate but I wouldn't want to try it lol. If you want to do intarsia on the Bond you really ought to get it, yes.

This is a very annoying pattern btw. I have done it twice now and people keep asking me to make them one and I keep saying no because it is soooooo annoying.  Tongue
