how to make an intarsia pattern larger?
Hello everyone, I need help

I am making a sweater for my 1 year old niece. I want to make a "snoopy" design in the back which I found in
http://www.jessica-tromp.nl/disneywa...ttinggifts.htm

But I need to enlarge it, and I have no idea how to do that. Some attempts I made created some weird looking Snoopies... Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, Maria

Thanks Ingrid.
I have not figure out how to use KnitPro yet, but I emailed them to ask for instructions. Hopefully it will work... otherwise I will just kave to start my own line of Snoopies.
Any other ideas?

Here are some more.

To use the KnitPro site, down load a picture to your computer and then choose the size you want and click on the Browse button and find your pic and upload it.

The images don't come out exact, but you can color them in.

Another idea is to get knitter's graph paper in the size you want and photocopy a picture of snoopy onto it if you have a copier available to you.

If you feel like a little work, you could just treat each square as four squares, thus doubling the number of rows and columns. Not sure how much bigger you want to go.

Whatever way you go, make sure that the squares you draw Snoopy onto as graph paper or a graph image of squares on your computer are not actually squares. Knit stitches are not square, but rectangular, so if you draw a Snoopy onto graph paper of squares and treat each square as a knit stitch, your knitted Snoopy will be distorted - kind of squashed or flattened. Google knitter's graph paper and you will get better graph paper of rectangles more like how stitches end up in practice. If you can't find someone to help you with Knitpro use knitter's graph paper and trace a Snoopy onto it and colour in each stitch the appropriate colour. Remember that if you do this your Snoopy will turn out not necessarily the same size as your drawn snoopy, but the same number of stitches wide. If your stitches are very small and your graph rectangles are medium-sized to give a Snoopy of 1 foot wide on paper, smaller real stitches will give you a smaller Snoopy (sorry if this sounds obvious and I'm being condescending but just want to be as clear as possible).

Thanks Ingrid,
I am not sure if I will end up with the image from Knitpro, but it was great to learn how to use it! I am somewhat computer challenged...
I am sure I will use it again and again. Thanks, Maria

Thanks Sarah,
I am transfering the image from Knitpro onto the graph paper I got from http://www.tata-tatao.to/knit/matrix/e-index.html like you suggested. I think it is going to look great. Thanks again, Maria
