[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="#300090"]I had seen other potholder and dish cloth patterns done using duplicate stitch, stranding, intarsia, and illusion for different images. I though I could easily make a chart from the NC State logo. So there it is! I found the image on the web with google image search, then sized it and applied a grid over the top of it.
I also decided that I wanted to do two handed Fair Isle. Using straight needles, it gets a little tedious to turn the work, move the skeins to the opposite sides and then purl back. So I also have been using left handed knitting to return to the right edge of the right side. (I still have to move the skeins, and that gets confusing).
The more I work with my left hand, the faster I get with my right hand also! I wanted to do a project that taught me something as well as made something. Since I plan on trying to sell this when it becomes a FO I also needed to make my own pattern.
I don't really have a pattern other than the chart. I just figure out what the next fair isle stitch should be as I go along. If I get a long float, I TINK back a stitch or two and fix it.
Now, I just need to get some free time to work on it again. :sad:
