I made this to finish the yarn in my stash. This is the first triangle scarf I made and I like it although I haven’t had much chance to use it.

After all the experiments with different stitches from the stitch library I decided to try the regular 2×2 rib, and was fascinated with the results. I made this for my other grandmother.

After all the experiments for my friends it was now time to make something for my boyfriend. Being a devoted Manchester United fan I figured he’d appreciate this. I used KG-Chart program to convert the logo and then spent about 8 hours editing it to have just 3 colours instead of the initial 25 – 30 colours. It took me a month to complete each cross stitch logo which is about 10″x11″ and then I knit the scarf using 6/8 cables. After all that work I decided it was better to put his name on it as well. I used a celtic cross stitch pattern site that I can’t find now. Needless to say he really likes it and I’ve been asked by all the other football fans for one with their team logo. Although I haven’t gotten around to actually doing that yet.

After the success of the previous design I tried again and was happy with the results. This meant that theoretically I can use simple cross stitch patterns in my knitting.

I used excel to put the pattern together. Turns out that excel can be used for both cross stitch and knitting. I was quite impressed with the results.
