the magazine knit1 is pretty funky... the first 2 issues have lots of cool/punk/rocker type things in them. Also, have you looked in stitch and bitch? there's some cute things in there--just remember to check the website for pattern corrections!!!

Glampyre has a free Felted Bag With Skulls pattern. If you didn't want to knit the whole bag, you could use the skull chart on a smaller project.

It shouldn't be too hard to punk-ify a pattern - that feeling really has a lot to do with colours. You could take a basic sock or mitten and change the whole feel by knitting it with high-contrast stripes of varying lengths and incorporating some bold fair isle/intarsia work.

you could always take a pattern that you like and make it punk. i remember reading an article on knitty about turning an image into a stitch motif using your computer.

Edit: here it is http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/FEATsmartchart.html
