Hmph! Not 5 minutes later he calls me to his computer screen to say "Is this what you need Mum?", showing me a charted Assassins Creed logo.
Actually this is another case of more stitches than those that show. Since I took this photo yesterday I knitted up another dozen or more rounds, only to discover the changeover from intarsia to swiss darning would not go smoothly. Oh well, it's a learning curve. Now I've frogged all the extra rows and a few more. Now I'm going to try knitting the beanie in plain stocking stitch, then swiss darning the top half of the logo. I just hope that where I have done intarsia, the red carried behind doesn't show through too much. Like I said, it's a learning curve, and who better to practise on than teenage boys that hopefully won't be as picky as I on the finer points of intarsia.
