This is for my grandson Evan.My first time with Intarsia and backwards knitting.Thomas the Train needs to have eyes and and port holes and bumpers embroidered yet. I hate to embroider so I might try Puff paint instead.

How cute, my son would love that! He's totally into Thomas...lol...One day I'll get around to knitting him a Thomas hat...Hubby is a graphic designer and he "drew" a pic of Thomas that I uploaded to KnitPro some time ago, to get a chart, I just haven't gotten around to knitting it yet 'cause I don't have the money for new yarn :(

I like hats shaped like that one. The front makes a very nice place to show off Thomas. That will be popular with Evan, and cute on him.

Can I get the pattern on ebay? If so, can you tell me the name of the seller?
You did a wonderful job! I want to make one for my grandson, he is crazy about Thomas!
Thanks,

Hi,
I went to ebay and they have a few thousand things:eyes: for Thomas, but no knitting pattern! I tried Amazon.com too, but they don't have anything...maybe I will try Ravelry!
Thanks,
Jen

I just checked ebay for Thomas the Tank knitting patterns and there were 3. One for a jumper, and 2 for sweaters. I suppose they could be converted to hats.
My nephew is totally into trains and this would be a great gift.
