Knitting for Confidence #8

As promised, my Knitting for Confidence post!  I finished this little guy a few weeks ago for a classmate, who LOVES it.  Always makes me so happy to hear people appreciate my work.  :)  She first approached me about a month ago, asking if it would be possible to knit the Philidelphia Eagles logo into a hat, and at first I was a little apprehensive about it, but while we were talking, I hopped onto Google search to look for a knitting chart someone might have done.  I couldn't believe it, but I found one.  

It wasn't until after I downloaded it and got a good look at it did I see how big it was.  Something like 75 stitches wide.  I wanted the logo for this hat to be about 30 stitches, so the entire logo would be seen at one glance.  So that meant creating my own chart from scratch.  From a detailed graphic.  Re-enter feeling apprehensive.

But somehow I did it.  It was tedious and a little frustrating at times, but I actually made my own chart from scratch.  And if you forget about how many details get lost in knitting, it actually isn't too shabby!  It also looks better when the real logo isn't right there to compare it to.  ;)   

Have you tried anything adventurous (knitting or otherwise) lately?  xx

currently listening to..// Don't Be a Girl About It - Kelly Clarkson


  1. love this! you're so talented. I wish I would've continued knitting when I was younger :P

  2. Congrats!! I find any kind of color knitting to be difficult (and usually not that fun) but I love the results. I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but there's a free online tool called knitPro that will make any picture into a knitting or crochet pattern (it even adjusts knitting patterns because knit stitches are rectangles rather than squares). The URL is http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro.htm. Keep up the knitting for confidence, I love it!!


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post! I appreciate it more than you know. xx
