Beatles Photo and Link to Make a Chart
Well, since a few of you have been asking, this is the best I can do to offer up the Beatles chart for you.
First. Copy this photo to your computer.
Then go to this site..http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/and upload the photo. I used the middle grid size option - Big (96w x 120h) for the crochet section.
And push the submit button.Hopefully you have Adobe or some other pdf file reader so that you can see your new chart. Then just print it out.
I don't have "pdf-to-html" conversion hardware or else I'd just post the grid right here. I also have no idea how to post a pdf file. I admit it. I'm a lame-oid when it comes to computers. I'm just glad I'm able to post anything at all on here
I used a Flexible Susan Bates Silvalume size J hook to crochet the blanket. It looks like a J hook with a long cable attached to the end with a "stopper" at the other end of the cable. This allows you to load up the cable with all your stitches and the "plug" prevents your stitches from slipping off the end. It's the greatest invention ever. Well, ok this and perhaps the wheel. Oh, and fire. Is fire an invention? No, I think that's a discovery. Now I'm having a bit of a silly conversation with myself so I think I'll just stop here..
Good luck to all of you!
Star of Gryffindor
I made this last week. I had the idea after seeing the Beth's Little Star pattern. I'm not sure I started the pattern correctly as it was a bit difficult to understand. But I made it work! Here's a couple more shots. (All images are clickable to enlarge) I wanted it to resemble the House scarves everybody makes. The center has 6 rows of claret red, (7 if you count the 5-"spoked" beginning), 2 rows of Poppy (it's really a gold color), 2 rows of red, 2 rows of gold, 6 red, then 2-2-2 again, then 4 rows of red. I edged it using a shell stitch of 6 clusters each, (with 8 clusters at the star tips). There are a total of nine shells along each star's "arms". Hope you all understand that. I thought of adding tassels to the tips. Maybe I still will. I always seem to go over the top. LOL!!!! I'd like to do one star for each House eventually.
I'm not even sure what Ravenclaw's colors are.
