Jennifer lives and knits in Montreal, Quebec, where she shares a home with her husband, yarn, 2 sons, needles, nail polish and a cat (not in order of priority). Her adventures in knitting and motherhood while working full time and becoming an optician are blogged about here: http://www.jeloca.com (Warning: she seems to do a lot of intarsia). You can also find her on Ravelry as jenniferlori, and see her other designs at http://www.ravelry.com/designers/jennifer-loriView all patterns by designer (14) »
For all the Montreal Canadians fans out there!
After some inspiration (thanks Maaike!) I have designed these cloths for you to use. The pattern is available in 3 sizes-
small (about 4.5" x 6") - shown
medium (about an inch larger in all directions)
large (another inch larger, plus has the words "GO HABS GO" across the top and bottom)
(The sample was test knit by Maaike. Her blog link is above, her ravelry notebook is here.)
In the sample shown, the chart was not worked as pure intarsia. Maaike did the thick stripes and most of the C in intarsia, and then duplicate-stitched the H in the middle. She also used duplicate stitch to create the points on the open end of the C so she didn't have to carry a blue float behind the red.
You are free to do the same, to use pure intarsia or even to duplicate stitch the whole thing.
The white and blue outlines were done last, once all the ends were woven in, using a slip-stitch crochet chain- first the white, then the blue just outside of the white one.
