View Full Version : Queen of Hearts pattern

Man, I gotta stop talking to my mom about knitting. She had mentioned that she had made a Queen of Hearts sweater a number of years ago. So I started thinking, ( not necessarily a good thing this late at night, it's about 11:30pm here) Can I design a jacket with the Queen of Hearts playing card on the back? Well I found an image that I could use for the patterning, just have to clean it up a bit. But I am thinking as well to make a Ace of Hearts jacket for myself. (sigh) Guess I'll get to work on hammering out the pattern, thinking possibly about making the heart in a raised stitch, through like cabling and what not. Though before I start crackin' down on doing this, does anybody know of a pattern that exists already?
You know.. on diy's knitty gritty, they did a scarf with the hearts, spades, and so on... here (http://www.diynet.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_3156492,00.html)
If you click on the pdf.. it will open the chart for you with all of the symbols. I know it's not a playing card pattern, but maybe you can work on it from there. Oh! And if you scroll down to the bottom, they even have a link to the graph paper you will need.. so you can print it out and graph it yourself.
Maybe THIS (http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/charts/queen-of-hearts-chart.htm) will help get you started.
check this (http://www.alltangledup.com/movabletype/archives/000047.html) out too. Pic about halfway down.

Thank you, Kemp, that was precisely what I was looking for, that vest is the exact pattern my mom knitted so many years ago. And a thanks to you too, Aby, those patterns will probably help in the design.
