Knit a ChemKnits Logo!



Do you love the new design of ChemKnits as much as I do? Well now you can knit your own ChemKnits logo!

Chart - 49 sts x 10 rows

The Pattern
  • Caston 59 stitches
  • Knit in stockinette for 4 rows (K right side rows, P wrong side rows)
  • Knit 5 stitches, work 49 sts of the first row of the chart, K 5 stitches (The chart is worked from bottom up, right to left on right side rows, left to right on wrong side rows)
  • P 5 sts, work the second row of the chart, P 5 stiches
  • Continue until all 10 rows of the chart have been knit.
  • Knit 4 rows of stockinette. (K right side rows, P wrong side rows)
  • Bind off K wise.

I hope that you like the new design of the site! There are a few other components (such as the Free Patterns by ChemKnits button) that still need to be redone, but I know I like the new look!



Thank you Little Cotton Rabbits for the C and K of the logo.

    1. Hi Glitter Mama! It is great to hear from you again.

      I know that you are familiar with making your own knitting charts. I drew my chart in Microsoft Excel (see link for part 1 of the tutorial), and then knit it following the above pattern. I am not sure what information I could share in a video that isn't in either of those posts. (Not to mention that I am not sure how I would film working on my computer... :))

      Search around for fun alphabet knitting charts and then start doodling. Before you know it you will be knitting up your very own logo!

      Best of luck,
      Rebecca
