I have a major problem… I want to create a blanket for my boyfriend with the Toronto Police Crest/logo, his badge number and name on it for his graduation this coming Jan. But everyone i speak to gives me differant information.
Some say to use a cross stich pattern designing site, to help me with transfering the logo into graph format but then contradict themselves when they say that its not be the best fit for what i want to do as it will make the picture squished looking. and i also need to pay for this type of service.
its going to be waayyy too difficult and time consuming for me to psycially draw out the pattern onto knitters graph paper.
I found another site that transfers the picture onto knitters graph paper but i dont know if i should use this because another knitter told me that my image will look distorted and that there are too many colours involved in the pattern now … the link is: http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/
I was also told that i should knit this in intarsia. I guess because it will save me in wool.
Another thing is that i dont want the Logo etc. to be some little tiny 8" X 9" picture on a blanket that is ment to be a couch blanket for a man who is 6’6 and 250lbs. it would be really nice to have the image cover 1/2 to 2/3 the blanket.
hopefully someone has some advice for me!
Thanks very much for all your help:-)
