finding patterns or charts
I'm a big Alabama fan and would love to figure out how to knit letters or an elephant or the Alabama A into something I'm kniting...how does one go about finding a specific knit pattern??

I live FAR from Alabama. But Ravelry came up with a search result:
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...oll-tide-chart

The elephant is in the hat but you can put it into anything. The chart is a free download.
(Ravelry is free to join and use, too. And it is really useful.)

If you have a pattern in mind, you can substitute a picture or letter into a spot that is blank- or knit stockinette. This can either be done by texture by alternating knit and purl or by color... swapping colors when you get to the area needed to be worked differently. For that, you can even use cross stitch charts, if you figure out how many stitches each square will contain.

The method
Hello. As the lovely ladies who posted before me said, there are many patterns available on the web, and you can also improvise the design if you like. The method of knitting that you would be using is called intarsia, so I would include that in your search. I would type something into google along the lines of "Alabama A intarsia knit pattern" or "Alabama Elephant intarsia knit pattern"

Hope I helped Sorry if I didn't
