1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone have a chart for these characters? on: August 05, 2005 01:30:32 PM
Hello all,
  I have been searching for intarsia charts of Sonic the Hedgehog and or SpongeBob Square pants.
I've searched the web for them and have had no luck.
   Is there is anyone out there that has some places for me to check out, or if you have one you want to share.
  I'd appreciate the help.

YIKES! Atomikpop!  I guess you did say what ya did.  HA!  I suppose I was so caught up in how cool the scarf was.

Atomikpop- this scarf is great! That would make a great gift for my little nephew, I know he would flip if I made him a scarf with your charts.
I just have one question.  What did you do for the underside of the scarf?  Did you do double knit or did you knit it up and then left the back as a back?
You did a great job!
Thanks for posting your charts!

My knitting knights in shining armor!!!!

Thanks so much! It all makes sense to me now.
I'm still getting the hang of knitting.  Everything I have done so far has been on straight needles though.  I haven't done anything in the round yet.  I heard it's loads of fun and easy.

JESSIE- Let me know how your tote comes along.

Do you think knitting on double pointed needles is any different or easier than circular?
Thanks again!

I found a pattern that I want to try out but I am not sure what something means in the directions. Can someone help me?
Also I have never knitted in the round before so maybe this is why I don't understand it.  I would really appreciate it if someone could just explain it to me.

This part I understand!
Cast on 24 sts.
Knit (garter st) 24 rows

This I don't! Do I do all that on the same needles I start on?
Turn and knit one more row, then pick up and knit 12 sts on the short sides of the rectangle, and 24 sts on the cast on edge.  There should be 72 sts on the needles.

PS this pattern is at www.sarahsthreads.com, under crafts and the name for the pattern is Teeny-Tiny Felted Tote.
Incase anyone has done this and has some additional comments as to how to make this.
Thanks a lot!!!

Thanks for all of your compliments, they mean a lot to me!!!!

Puppymama- I used Patons Classic Merino Wool Yarns , I believe the colors used are Chestnut Brown, Worn Denim and I forget the name of the green yarn.

Broadzilla- The inside of the bag came out nice and neat. The pieces of yarn that I wove in at the end of color blocks just melted into the bag.  The only thing that I did mess up on was that I knotted some spots just because I was in a rush to felt it-so you see the knots.  But it's nice....pretty much a complete mirror image of the front with the breaks in the yarn color from where it gets twisted to change colors.  It's kinda cool though, looks like dots outlining the flower.

SewerRat- My bag shrunk more length wise.  The bag was originally about 7 inches wide and 6-61/2 inches long.
After the felting process it now measures 6 1/2 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches long.
I also think that I ran it for too long without checking on it, while it was in the washing machine.  I pretty much tossed it in and left the house.  I think it was in the machine for like 12-15 minutes.
But now I know that I have to make adjustments so I can have a bigger bag.
I'm still very pleased with my mini bag.

I'm going to work on another one soon.  I'll post that as soon as I'm done.

 Here is the link for the one I used for my mini bag.

The one I used is Large Intarsia Flower, then I just looked around and saw other free patterns on bags and roughed it.  The next one I make needs some adjustments so that it is bigger though.

From what I gather it seems easy to design your own pattern. In the questions and answers section of the knit crafters forum there is information on how to download a graph and chart out your own intarisa pattern.

I hope this helps!

Thanks Treasure Cat!  I love the colors of yarn that I used too.  I love the blue against the brown.  I was originally going to use green for the petals but I thought I would experiment with the blue first.  I'm so happy with how it came out especially because it was the first time I ever did intarsia. 
Hopefully I'll crank out another bigger and cuter bag to post soon.

Hi everyone!  I just wanted to share the first thing that I ever made for myself.  I've always made scarves and hats for others but this time I decided to explore intarsia and felting.  I pretty much winged it and came out with this cute mini bag.  I'm going to try to make another one that is bigger now that I know how much my knitted bag will shrink.
I am pretty darn happy with my little gift for myself and just wanted to share my joy.

(This is my first post with a picture so I hope it comes out okay.)

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do I make a design on my knits? on: February 17, 2005 08:53:41 AM
I'm new to knitting and I have been itching to put some images on my knits...can someone tell me how to go about doing this?
I know I have to do my design on a grid but I really don't know how to begin this process.
How do I figure out how big or small the image can be?  I would really appreciate it if any of you have advice for me on how to get started. Thanks!
