That's a smashing idea, except I forgot to mention...she wants her school mascot on the back, and my duplicate stitching kinda sucks.

So I'd really like to knit it from scratch.

Thanks for the idea though!

I come to you beloved Craftster knitters on bent knee. I need help.

My cousin has enlisted me to knit her a school sweater, she would be satisfied with a regular pullover, but of course, being the insane person I am I really want it to be cooler than that. I want retro varsity sweater.

I haven't been able to find a pattern, unless my cousin was a dog, in which case I would be set. So, since cousin is human I'm struggling.

Has anyone found a pattern similar to the pics below in a book or perhaps online? I would shower you with praise if that was the case.

Thanks for any directions and help!

Wow. Thanks for all the great comments guys, *huggles craftster*

I'll gladly post my charts...however...I have to redraw them, as I was having problems with them fitting on the sweater and not being all wonky so I was constantly redrawing them. You will not be able to understand my charts, serious.

But I'll redraw next week when I'm on Reading Week and post them!

Here's where I got the dog:

Which I got from this craftster, check it out, a Duck Hunt quilt!

Thanks again guys!
I'll be back with charts soon!

As a child, I was slightly obsessed with Nintendo Duck Hunt. It was fantastic.

Years later, I used my new obsession, knitting, to relive my Dunt Hunt days.

Here's the results, enjoy!!

-sweater took just over a month of off and on knitting
-used old sweater pattern, drew up charts myself (minus the dog, which I found online)
-first time knitting with colour - intarsia AND stranded! wooo!

Thanks for all the comments! They were pretty fun to make, and they're SO warm! When I tried them on (inside the house) my hands started to sweat. Eek.

The link I used was http://www.yarnforward.com/mitt2n.html But I kinda like the look of the pattern IamSusie posted. I like that the thrums don't line up in every row.

so you knit them flat???
Yep! You knit them flat and then just sew up the seams when you're done! Sorry, I should have taken a picture before I sewed them!

Looking back, the only time consuming part was knitting in the thrums...the mittens were a breeze.

I DID IT! I conquered mittens! They're 2 needle however, so less frightening than DPNs. I'll try that next.

I used the 2 needle thrummed mitten pattern that I found linked on Craftster.

I'm pretty proud of them; I'm a novice knitter and this is my first finished project after my "learning scarf" lol.

They're for my mom but I ended up knitting the men's size because the women's were way too small (and ugly because it was my first attempt...)

Final measurements:
Men's mitten - roughly 26cm.
Women's mitten - roughly 23 cm.
(not that much of a difference but we have long fingers - the picures make the women's mitten look MUCH smaller)

Thanks for looking!

19  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Lily Stencil on: October 07, 2006 07:17:01 PM
Instead of writing my essay, I stenciled a shirt. Perfect use of my time!

I got the stencil by Googling "Lily Stencil", and I'm pretty sure it's copyrighted...*insert collar tug*. I used the freezer paper method and my usual stenciling method (stencil black outline, hand paint details).

I'm rather pleased with how it came out!

Hello fellow knitters,
I have been on a quest, actually the quest of all quests, to find a pattern for a Cowichan style sweater (see attached photo). They were rather popular in the 60s I believe.

I was wondering if any of you could help me locate a book or pattern?

Thanks in advance!!
