I’m sure this must’ve come up before but I can’t seem to find anything through the search function. Maybe I’m using the wrong search terms…?
I’m making a hat for a friend and he wanted me to incorporate some graphics. So, I want to chart it out on some graph paper to see what guage I need to knit in in order to get a decent image (as in, how many “pixels per inch” I need for a sharp image to appear).
I remember reading somewhere that the stitch isn’t exactly square so if you graph something onto square graph paper and knit it, it’ll look all squashed.
So, can I get some tips for how y’all go about doing this? Print out your own graph paper with rectangles instead of squares? Is there somewhere I can print out blanks? (I used to be able to print out blank music manuscript paper, so I’m thinking there may be something similar)
