Sorry I didn't put a link for the skull (beeosh was on top of it)  But there is also a skull pattern in the stitch 'n bitch book for a sweater that could be altered to fit the wrist bands.

Anyone seen any good "flame" charts anywhere? Like the flames you see on sweatshirts and rockabilly shirts lately (at least that's what they seem to be called) I need some for some armwarmer/mitts for my little brother, and am having a rather hard time charting them out!

(figured since we were on the subject of skulls, flames shouldn't be left out!)

I'm not sure if this will help or not.

Here is a link of car flame jobs.
In the section labeled For the Do It Yourselfers there is a link called Printable Practice Flames.

This might give you a foundation for getting the "authentic" flames you desire.  You might be able to transfer that into a pattern.  I don't know.

I'm working on Snowball's Cat Bed right now, its coming along really well. I'll post a pic when its done.  I think I'll make the Cony Island scarf for my sister for Christmas.  I Loved Debbie's book!  I'm also trying to get a Stitch 'N Bitch Houston started up Check out the group page.  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/stitchnbitch-houston/

Right now i'm working on the Coney Island scarf for my niece- in purple fur and cheapo purple & pink varigated Red Heart Kids.  Nestled in a bag are the yarns for the Alien Illusion scarf (for my nephew) and the Umbilical Cord hat (for a friend's new baby). I'm going to add kitty ears to the little hat... though i may nix the cord part, unless it can be convincingly made to look like a kitty tail.

I made the armband, but because I destest swatching (especially for a project so small) I can barley get it over my big man hands. Oh well. It makes a good warmer for the strap on my bag.

I also made the flame hat, but didn't use the colorway in the pattern, I just did stripes. My husband loves it.

The first sweater I will ever make will be the skully sweater. I swear it.

I just finished the Hot Head (I'm wearing it now!) -- I didn't do the colors either, I just did a single yarn.  But what I didn't realize was that the S (M, L) were I guess women's sizes -- I kinda thought it was men's since there was a man in the picture.  So I did the medium for my bf...and well, I'm the one wearing it.  And my gauge exactly on target with what the instructions said.  Oh well, maybe I'll do another for the bf.  I would loooove to do the Skully sweater too -- but I've been working on the same sweater for about a billion years and it'll never get done.  I need to stick to little projects.

I have a question about the Stitch 'n Bitch book:  how explanatory is it?  I can knit and purl, but the only thing I know how to make is a scarf (or anything that starts out flat and can be rolled into a tube, I guess  Wink ).  Does it offer pretty good instructions for the projects, or does it kind of assume a certain level of skill beforehand?  I really want it, but if it means I'm going to have to buy a bunch of other books to learn how to make the things in it, it wouldn't really be worth it...

Hi Bluestar,
I *highly* recommend the book. In fact, I wish I'd had it when I first started. The pix are great and the explanations are really fantastic. I recommend it wholeheartedly!
