Finished this on Sunday (13 Dec), and just wanted to show it off, I'm very happy with the finished result. It took a couple of hours to do the charting, but worth it.

I bought a gift pack with hot chocolate, a mug and a mini hot water bottle, it had a pink cable jumper hot water bottle cover with it as part of it... and then I thought ooo I bet I could make one for my sister, little did I know that my mum had gone to the disney store and bought a night dress and slippers with Jack's head on them.. spooky or wot...lol...!!!!

My sister's gonna love it.. ok less of the gloating and now a pic... its a bit dark, but it adds to the spookiness....

Sorry for the late reply, what with xmas and new year.. I've been super busy!
In answer to ur question Angelwings219... I went on Google and found some cartoony pics of Jack and then used paintbrush to cut off the head and size it and then I used the free KnitPro website to chart it... it took awhile and is a very old school way of doing things.. but it works for me!!!!
