Okay, so I'm working on my quillow still and am getting the creative bug :happydance: to make this a fun blanket by knitting squars with a chart. I have two ideas to bring before you guys, and want your advice and help in finding or creating my own chart for this.
ONE: I love pigs, LOVE EM! I don't even eat pork because I like them so much, so one idea was to make a chart of a pig to knit in each square. I wanted to a simple pig face, nothing too cartoony.
TWO: I'm getting married on the 6th of March. My fiance is a Rebublican, and I'm a Democrat. We joke about our differences all the time so I was thinking of making one square a donkey, then the other an elephant and alterating. And then on the pillow face of the quillow embroidering our names and wedding date. I think that would be a fun, personal, and cute way to make a joke that would mean something to only us. But how do I make a pattern? I've been reading on stitching them, and I'm getting so good at purling and knitting that I think I'm ready for the challenge, but next I need the chart.
I would LOVE any help you could give me, and I'm very very excited about the donkey elephant one. It just popped into my head and would be hilarious!
