Title: Knitty´s "Exchequered" ... a little modified
Post by: designingermany on November 21, 2006 02:23:37 AM
Hi everybody, finally, I made a scarf, too ... sometimes it´s fun to do a project that´s finished very quick. I made this scarf for my boyfriend´s birthday and added a skull on one side, as he loves that very much. The pattern is awesome, I think! I´m in love with double-knitting now... and so I decided to give a pullover to my boyfriend this christmas in matching coulours but with "Spaceinvaders" (remeber the game?)-pattern ...
hope you like it!





Thank you for looking!  ;D

Wow, that rocks! I have that pattern on my future knitting projects list, but adding the skulls is a stroke of genius, I might just steal that idea ...  ::)

I love your version and that is the best skull pattern I have ever seen done as a knitting chart.  Will you share it with me?

very nice!!! I tryed double knitting but i got bored with it. I tryed the Star scraf  pattern on here and I did about 4 stars on it and gave up, I messed up on all but one of the stars. maybe i'll try it again someday.

I'm working on this scarf RIGHT NOW! Well, not RIGHT now, since I'm typing, but you know what I mean. The skull is an awesome addition!

I think it's really fun to knit. I'm not actually following the pattern anymore, just making up the square placement as I go along. Everyone at school is muy impressed. Great design, Alice!
