I saw this really great pattern on http://www.domiknitrix.com/knittingpatterns/malcolmx_knittingpattern.cfm so I decided to make it for a friend.

I am going to frame it for them so they can hang it next to their poster of him.
It only took about six days, although i had to backtrack a couple of times because i got distracted by the television and the cat.

Wow, that's really original! I wish that there were more political/historical patterns out there like this!

Wow....  what can I say but.....Wow!

Out of curiousity, how did the intarsia work out for you? (I think I might have tried duplicate stitch/Swiss darning, but I have a secret horror of working in intarsia.)

I'm really impressed at the sensitivity of your drawing!

I saw this too. I'm 8 months pregnant now and we are naming our son Malcolm. I was going to make a scarf with the pattern on it for my husband (he likes big scrafs).
Yours came out so great I really wanted to see a completed version first.
Is theback really messy from the yarn? How wide is it?

Thx

Thats fantastic, what a great idea.

It would look great on a jumper (sweater).

Thanks all!
It's a great pattern, Domiknitrix is extremely talented!
Lisascenic, the intarsia really wasn't that difficult though i am still learning as i go along how much wool to leave at the back so it doesn't scrunch up too much at the front.
Luluclyde, i knitted on 5mm needles and it turned out to be about 30cm wide by 45cm long, and the back is a bit messy from all the changes, so maybe for where the pattern is going to be you could knit an extra length and make a 'pocket' at the back to hide it?

Oh wow! That is some really impressive intarsia work and I love the idea of making knitted "pictures" to frame.
