thanks, crazycatladymel!  it sounds like a good place to start, and i guess once i cast that many stitches on it should give me some indication of whether it will fit.  will post my results hopefully soon.  or not, if it's a total bust Smiley

Wow, i so have to make one in time for the movie (if it gets released here, we still haven't had a confirmed date for Australia, and i'm not holding my breath because the series only showed here at one in the morning).
How many stitches do you think you should cast on for a big fat boofy male head?

Wow, that is so cute.  I want to make one for my niece!

I have been making these for a while now, as the list of friends wanting one keeps growing Smiley.  The pattern is from the book "Knitted Cats" by Joy Gammon, but this is the first one i have knitted in stockinette so i could try to replicate the pattern of the cat who belongs to the person i made it for.
35  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cat Face Afghan on: June 27, 2005 05:12:17 AM
Hi all!
I have just completed the first panel of a catface afghan rug at http://www.acrilan.com/patterns/aug04/catfaceafghan.html

It's going to be a bit of a long term project for me  Wink and this first panel is going to turn out to be the matching cushion as i didn't leave enough wool at the back while changing colours and therefore it's a bit bunched up.
Does anyone have any ideas for what to do with the back of the rug?  I don't really want to have to knit squares for the back of each panel, because frankly i don't have the patience!  Is there a good bit of material one can use, or any other tips?

That is way cute!  The face is embroidered really well - my faces on teddy bears are all really lopsided, but i guess it adds to the charm!  I like the heart as well.

I think the picture makes it look a lot bigger than it actually is!  It its into an A4 frame...

Thanks, everyone!
I was thinking myself it would look good on a library bag or something similar, but i am nowhere near capable of even trying something like a sweater!
All in all, it took about two/three days of knitting, sweating, pulling out of stitches, swearing, and counting until it was complete.  I am thinking of attatching wooden rods at the top and bottom so it can hang like a banner or 'tapestry'.  And am now starting on some to get to fellow Harry fiends in time for the new book... if not they will hopefully get by the time the goblet movie is released!
(And might i say, thank you all for being so welcoming.  Some people i have already come across were agitated by the thought of a male knitter - but after lurking here for quite some time i knew you would be friendly!)

Hi all!
This is my first time posting a project - being a guy, i have hidden my knitting for quite a while, but have decided to get over that.  As a Harry Potter fan i have of course done the obligatory scarf, but wanted to try something new, so here it is:
I used the pattern found at www.wiseneedle.com/images/patterns/liongraph.pdf
Looking forward to sticking around...

When you posted this in the projects section, i added it to my list of things to do.  I just have to figure out how to do the three-needle knit, having only just mastered the two-kneedle knit!   Smiley
