batman cape
I know a little boy that loves batman and wanted to make him a cape...any one have any patterns or suggestions?
I was going to make a huge bib and try to insert the batman bat logo with intarsia; never done it before, no promises. Guess I should do a knit edging and st. stitch for the intarsia, right?

Maybe you can use this program. I have never used it...still new to knitting here..but if you find a picture of batman you could come up with the cape pattern yourself..

Just a thought here.

I'm thinking it may be easier to just sew one. That is if you have a sewing machine. There is also a product out there that you just iron to make seams and to attach other fabric pieces. That would eliminate the need for a machine anyways. I used that for a curtain for a little closet and it worked like a charm.

Too bad, I used to have a cape from my boys when they were smaller. They used to run around the house and jump off the couch to "fly". Goof balls! :D

Hmmm, I should look once, it may still be around. It was from a Halloween costume that my boys outgrew.

I had considered that too, sewing one up, but I already have the black and yellow yarn. Maybe I can trace the batman logo, shrink it and do a hat for him-that was the original plan. Hummmmm. I only have till the end of the month; guess I'd better make up my mind. :thinking:

I googled batman knitting chart, and found this:

I don't know if that's what you had in mind, but it is Batman.

Found it! But I don't know the easiest way to get you to it. I went to yarngrrrl.livejournal.com and then to her entry on June 3, 2006. It's back a page in her journal. Or maybe two pages. Hope this helps!!! :D samm
