Thanks, everyone!

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply, I've been travelling.

I made up the pattern on my own. I used double pointed needles, which any good sock book can teach you how to use.  I used US size 5 needles and crappy acrylic worsted weight yarn.  This made the stitches tight, but there aren't any gaps between the stitches.  I believe it is 44 stitches around and it is a little loose, so you might try decreasing the stitches to 40.

The pattern is as follows (top down):
Cast on 44 stitches, divide onto 3 dpn
Rows 1-9) *k2, p2*
Rows 10-42) knit
Row 43) *k3 k2tog*
Row 44)knit
Row 45) *k2 k2tog*
Row 46) knit
Row 47) *k1 k2tog*

break off the yarn and thread it through the remaining stitches.  Place on the cozy on the fourty and pull the end of the yarn until it looks the the cozy fits right (I had a hole on the bottom about as big as a quarter).  Weave in the yarn.

Happy knitting,
-j

OE is his favorite!  And he was only slightly thrown by opening the gift in front of my parents.  heh.

i've found a beer can (or soda) cozy in a kid's knitting book.  it's a green book that i think is titled, "teach me to knit."  my sister got it at hobby lobby and one of my friends found it at michael's.  i can try to snag the pattern from one of them and add it to this thread.

sneeg, do you have a link to the galaga pattern?  i haven't tried intarsia yet but i'm collecting ideas when i get brave enough.  galaga rocks!

Hey femiknit!

I actually just took a picture of a galaga that I found online  (there is a good picture of all the ships here: http://www.skytowergames.net/resources/rm2k/charset/galaga.png ), saved it into  picture editing software, and zoomed in a lot.  When you zoom in far enough for the ships to be about two or three inches tall, it is really easy to see the grid of colored squares that makes up the image.  I wrote the color grid down onto graph paper and used that as my pattern.  This sort of approach should work for most old games where the graphics are really pixelated.

Good luck!

Hey sneeg--
I tried your 40 oz cozy, and it turned out very cute!! But I am stupid and put it on upside down... doh! So now is will be religated to my bottle of peche lambic.... Also stiched a crappy looking skull on it, so it looks kind of silly (a small rip-off of one I saw online and fell in love with...).
