To boldly go where some, (but not many), (well, ok, a few), crocheters have gone before...

Tadaa,...old-school Spock! (a.k.a. Leonard Nimoy).

For this afghan I used a pumpkin carving stencil from a site called Pink Raygun.
I would give the link but I'm not sure that's allowed.
But just google it. They have free pumpkin stencils for the whole original cast.

I then graphed it at Microrevot's knitpro graphing page. (Also free).

This is the back of the afghan.

It's not a very large afghan or anything. It's about the size of a beach towel.
(I really don't want to dig out my tape measure but I will if I have to.) LOL!!!

I used Red Heart yarn in black, Caron One Pounder yarn in white, and Peacock Blue in I Love This Yarn. (I know. Spock's uniform is more blue than that. I wanted an electric blue. But I gave up. I wish they'd make yarn in pop-art, day-glow kinds of colors. I'd be all over them. And not any fancy-schmancy yarns. Just normal, regular, every-day use, how many more ways can I say the same thing- type yarn. LOL

I was thinking this afghan would look cool mounted on a wall with a black light shining on it. Spock would glow because he's so white-faced.

Live long and prosper! crochet!

You did an amazing job Smiley

Yes, it's tunisian crocheted with a size J cabled afghan hook.
Then I single crocheted around it with a regular J hook about 6 times to try and stop that curl.

Awesome afghan!

And thanks for the KnitPro link.  Jeez, you saved me from hours of coloring in graph paper like an idiot.  Roll Eyes

P.S.  Caron Simply Soft has some pretty day-glo type colors.  I think the line is called Bright or Brights or something like that Brites.

Hell yes! I should use this method to make a Data or Tuvok version. Yours looks pretty neat and tidy, I'm not sure my 'intarsia' skills are that good yet.
