I can't believe more people haven't commented on this yet. What a great idea! Nice job.
I wish there was an Ikea near me...

Nice job! I like the way you stitched around the trim, rather than making the trim another color.
I'm working on this sweater right now. (I'm due Dec. 27th  Grin) The people at my lys seemed a bit horrified when I told them I was putting skulls on a baby sweater. Smiley

I saw Weezer in Detroit a couple of weeks ago! They're been my favorite band since I was in 8th grade (circa 1994)! Great job on the shirt!

When I did this scarf I couldn't figure out how to get it to work from the top of the skull down either. So I just knit another skull from the bottom up and attached it to the rest of the scarf using a three needle bind off.
Hope that helps.

Ahhh!!! I absolutely love it. Scrabble is my all time favorite game, but I can never get anyone to play it with me. Maybe now I can just make myself a Scrabble pillow to comfort myself when no one will play  Wink

that really is cool. Did you draw the design out in color first?

No, I just sketched out the basic shapes and went from there. I had these beads lying around for a while and knew that those were the colors I wanted to use. I had a pretty strong picture of it in my head so I didn't feel like I needed to draw it in color first.  Smiley

Hi everybody- thanks for the comments. I know it's hard to see the details of a black sweater very well in photos, especially when I wear a black shirt underneath, duh on my part.  Tongue

I think this pattern is a pretty good choice for a first sweater. Good luck to everyone who is thinking of trying it! Be sure to post photos when you're done.

And as for blocking- I think I will try soaking it and then re-shaping it. But even if doesn't make much difference it's still wearable.

So I took the leap and made my first sweater. The pattern is from knitty.com and it's called Sitcom Chic. It's nothing spectacular but I think it's pretty respectable for a first try. And I even changed the patten a little bit- it had a row of eyelets across the chest and shoulders but I didn't like it so I just knit a couple of purl rows on the knit side to make a decorative "ridge".

Here it is lying flat

And here I am wearing it (I actually wore it out in public today!)

And I have a question for you guys-- what's the best way to block a garment that's made out of cotton yarn? I steam blocked this sweater and it really didn't seem to do much... I was hoping I would be able to even out the structure a bit more. Any suggestions?
