I think it would be pretty easy to recreate; BUT I'd say it has to be done with really fine yarn, like fingering or sport weight to avoid the bulk of a traditional Aran.  Check out a stitch dictionary for some great cable-panel  ideas. 

I loved that dress, too, and am tempted to dare to wear somehting so short!!!
you could wear it with leggings or something?

Yeah, I think I'd make it just a bit longer so that I could do the bare-leg-boots thing it I felt like it.

Hi,

I just saw the trailer for the movie Penelope with Christina Ricci that is coming out this spring. It features a fantastic scarf with a honeycomb pattern. If anyone knows where I can find a pattern for a multicolor scarf like this, I'd be thrilled.

Check it out at:

thanks,

I don't know if this has been mentioned (I'm really not into reading all 49 pages), but Mona Lisa Smile has the best knits. It made me want to knit an old-fashioned letterman sweater.

I watched "Capote" on DVD this weekend. In it Catherine Keener (as Harper Lee) wears a couple of really nice cardigans, kinda boxy with a nice collor and a very textured stitch, kinda like a basket weave or something. They could even be crochet. I looked on imdb for pictures but I couldn't find anything. They were very nice. One in a camel colour and the other a nice green.

It was a good movie by the way.  Cool

That looks like what I have heard called a "honeycomb" stitch. You can find a pattern for it in Mason Dixon Knitting in the pattern for the "Big Dotty Cushion." It's essentially two rows knit in color A (in your pic that would be the black), then you switch colors and slip two stiches every six stitches (*k6, sl2*--this isn't exactly right, but you get the idea). You could probably look this up under slip stich patterns as well.

The only thing about this pattern is that it will only look good on one side. And it reeeeeally needs to be blocked. I did something in this stitch in cotton and I was not very happy with the results. I recommend wool, or something that stretches and blocks well.
Good luck!

Anyone Seen X-Men 3: The Last Stand?  Rogue had a cute scarf on (just before she leaves).  Couldn't get a good look at it to see if it was knit or not.

Thanks - this points me in the right direction. If I ever knit this scarf, I'll be sure to post it here.

cheers,

Hi all!!  I'm sure a whole bunch of people here saw the movie like I did (love love love me some Gael Garcia Bernal).  Apart from him though, did anybody see the dress that Stephanie wears to the bar??  It's like this knitted aran mini and it's freakin GORGEOUS!!  I've been searching the web frantically for pics of it ever since I saw the movie . . . does anybody have any idea?  Holy crap do I want to make one of those so bad!
