My sister and I decided to knit my mom a sweater for Christmas.  We were discussing what to put on the sweater and came up with silhouettes of our faces.  I knit the front and the one arm.  My sister knit the back and the other arm. 

I first took our pictures then printed them out two pages high.  And then cut them out.

I knit a little bit of dark grey at the bottom and measured my stitches.  I came up with 4 stitches per inch across and 6 stitches per inch high. 

I then used this website to create graph paper with boxes 1/6 in X 1/4 in so that each box was the same size as one stitch.

I then traced our cut out faces onto the graph paper and there was my chart that I knit from! 

I'm sure there might be a program out there or something to create charts with but I thought this was an nice easy way.  And it actually worked out!!
