Knit logos? Answered
I'm trying to knit a scarf for my boyfriend. I had an idea of knitting a Boston Celtics clover into it. His school colors are green, and he's a big fan of the Celtics, so the scarf is already green. I don't want to knit it using two colors, I'd rather alternate between knitting and purling so that its just a change in texture and its subtle. I've already found a great chart, but I'm not sure if it would work, like if the logo would come across well, or if it would look lie i just messed up the scarf. It would be fantastic if someone could tell me if this is a valid idea or even try it out.
I've included the pattern below, as well as one that i drafted up (its pretty much the same, but i shrunk the original so that it wasn't as tall or wide, but kept the same proportions)
I'm using Yarn Bee; Effervesce in Forest, with a gauge of 18stsx24R for a 4" square (package says using size 8 USA [5mm] needles, but I'm using 5s to get a tighter stitch)
