Since I had nothing better to do, I decided to create some intarsia patterns using Monroe Dingbat font I dowloaded back in 2000.  Here's the first one I've completed:



and the knitted sample.



I cheated a bit b/c I carried the yarn behind my work instead of having blocks of color for each section as you can see below:




There's more to come in upcoming weeks so I'll post them as soon as I'm done.

Coming along nicely! I had no idea there was a Monroe dingbats font. Are you going to do it like in patches, and make a blanket or something! I'll definitely be checking back on your progress... well done!

Thanks!  At the time I found the font at dingbatpages.com but now it's housed at www.dingbatdepot.com

I was planning to use the best chart to create the punk rock backpack from stitch 'n bitch and some arm warmers but I might use my samples for a patchwork blanket.  Since I just finished the second chart I have to start knitting it soon.  I'm currently working on my mom's birthday present. Wink

The graphs were made using an online knitting graph paper generator I found in stitch 'n bitch. The I used photoshop and took the font to the biggest size photoshop would allow and printed it onto the graph paper.  But I used a very light gray because I didn't want the graph lines to get lost.  Then I just colored in the blocks that were full or more than half full with the light gray to come up with the pattern.

I made it monochromatic so I wouldn't get confused.

Gnar - I wouldn't use it, but that's a great technique.

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
