I had no idea what I was getting into. First, find picture of Bat symbol online somewhere and print it. Second, put said symbol under graph paper, tape to sliding glass door and trace. Third, color in Bat symbol on the graph paper so that you have a new and blocky symbol. Fourth, get empty graph paper pages. Fifth, color in Bat symbol on graph paper only use every fourth row. Sixth, color in third row on graph paper (and then every fourth row after that) with the negative image. Voila, you have your pattern.
Then knit. And purl And keep knitting and purling. In fact, knit or purl 28,800 stitches. Then bind off and add fringe. SO easy! ;) Actually, it was fairly easy, just time consuming. I'm glad that I gave myself three months to do it because it meant that I didn't have to totally rush and did get to work on - and finish, a number of projects while I had this one on the needles.
Just before I finished it I had Rob take a picture of me working on it while wearing it. It's long. Oh yeah. Long. But, you know, it will keep her really warm. 100% wool. Really, really warm. Now, the picture of me isn't the greatest. Almost so not the greatest that I hesitated to even let anyone see it, but that's beside the point. Just wanted you to know that I know that, yeah, I look really bad in that photo. But the scarf looks great. See, you can't see the Bat symbol AT ALL.
In the next photo with it laid out on the table you can kind of see the symbol because the light coming in the window at it sideways like that makes it show up a little. But in the last photo, taken from the side - KAPOW! There it is in all it's glory.
And I can post about this FINALLY since I was able to give it to Jessa for her birthday over the weekend.
