Punky patterns

im trying to find punk (and relatively easy) patterns for anything really. something small like wristbands, hats, socks that have punk styles (think hot topic) i wanna start with my Xmas gifts now n my frinds are punk n goth people. if you know of any, please tell me

Check out the newest www.knitty.com

the magazine knit1 is pretty funky… the first 2 issues have lots of cool/punk/rocker type things in them. Also, have you looked in stitch and bitch? there’s some cute things in there–just remember to check the website for pattern corrections!!!

Glampyre has a free Felted Bag With Skulls pattern. If you didn’t want to knit the whole bag, you could use the skull chart on a smaller project.

It shouldn’t be too hard to punk-ify a pattern - that feeling really has a lot to do with colours. You could take a basic sock or mitten and change the whole feel by knitting it with high-contrast stripes of varying lengths and incorporating some bold fair isle/intarsia work.

you could always take a pattern that you like and make it punk. i remember reading an article on knitty about turning an image into a stitch motif using your computer.
