Title: Space Invader Hat
Post by: piratekittie on July 13, 2006 09:34:13 AM
I've been practicing colour work lately (I still suck but I'm working on it) and I happened across these space invader charts and I thought it'd make a sweet hat. They're kind've weird looking, especially the 2 yellow ones but like I said, I'm still working on this whole intarsia thing.





(excuse the tired look. I have a summer class that starts at 8am and it's not fun!)

Suggestions for improvement much appreciated! :)

I got the chart off this website:

Not exactly a knitting chart but they have lots of fun cartoon characters and stuff. I want to make a matching scarf that has the little battleship with 'bullets' coming up the length of the scarf.

I LOVE it, knitting a si hat is still on my *to do list*, and it has been for months now. I should get started before winter comes :)
