A member from Massachusetts, wanted to crochet New England Patriots. I suggested she use the afghan stitch and cross stitch the logo on. I decided to try using my cross stitch pattern for the Red Sox and make a graph to knit. I used Excel to make the chart, then used the chart to make the pattern. I have never used a chart before and forgot that the knit row was from right to left, but found out on my 10th knitted row and had to start over again. I am going to make it a pillow and still have to knit the back, and I have to do a little top stitch on the "Socks", but I was real pleased with it. I have great respect for people who develop charts.

I may not be a sports fan, however, your logo is really well done! Looks like it took a lot of patience ;-)

Thanks, I think it took longer to make the cart and written pattern than to knit it, but it was nice to know you can convert a cross stitch pattern to knitting.

If you do a lot of graph work. There is a free program online called knitpro
You select what size and type of needle work ie knitting cross stitch crochet
Upload your pix and it creates a chart for you
You can save any image from the Internet & convert it to a chart

A quick way to create graphs

This link is a blanket I made patching images together ( I created seperate charts for the image, Greek letters, and script and figured out how I wanted to layout for blanket)
