Funny how my february contest entry two years in a row now have won first price and a DD now :3 Guess I'm extra super creative in february?
I don't mind that!
For the february contest at
The theme was "comic". And I won first price!
When they announced the contest my mind just said click and this idea was born! I just knew I had to make a fair-isle sweater with Batman symbols all over it. After a yarn round, I started this sweater on the 5th of february and finished it up, washed and blocked it at the 15th of february! New personal record for adult fair-isle sweater.
I half followed the pattern for a standar sweater, mixed in my own measurements and did some changes here and there to make it fit as perfectly as possible. The fair-isle is based off the traditional Marius pattern for round yokes, just to make it easier for myself without having to do all the calculations and numbers, and I decided to keep some of the Marius parts in there since I do love that pattern so much. So please, do not copy or alter this in any way.
Batman is my favorite comicbook hero, hands down. I grew up watching Batman Forever with my oldest brother and we had Batman comic books at our cabin. Around the age of 12-13 I discovered Michael Keaton Batman and I really fell in love and to this day, he's my favorite Batman and Jack Nicholson is the ultimate Joker. So ofcourse I had to use the classic Batman logo and also put "Joker" into the pattern.
