Welcome!

I've been knitting for over 6 years now, and I've gotten pretty good at it. I don't have much time for big projects, and instant gratification tries to run my life. Many of my smaller projects don't get posted because I forget, or I give the items away before a picture can be taken. Rest assured, I am always knitting something.

Legend of Zelda Scarf

I knit this on size 8 wooden circulars, CO between 60-70 stitches, not 100% sure how many, but Link is almost 30 stitches, so at minimum it's 60. I knit the scarf to about 70", and then duplicate stitched the images on. As seen from the previous post, I very heavily modified a couple charts, and I made up the Navi chart. The triforce is everywhere, so I don't feel I owe any one person credit. This was incredibly fun, and I think it turned out really good. My only real complaint is my own guage issue; otherwise, I love it and plan on wearing it all winter!






ETA January 2014: Here are several more iterations I've done of this scarf - I've improved upon the images and each is unique:






And finally, a custom LoZ from a geekster who purchased the original last year!:

good job, that take alot of time to have the pattern of the pics set up just right to match up. I can't do those I always screw up so then the pic looks wrong. Good job again.

This is amazing ^__^ I recently started to knit and I can’t wait to mix pixel art love with knitting. Could you publish the charts somewhere? —Éric
