Here are the Wonder Woman gauntlets I made for my best friend (done in Wool-ease on size 6 needles). I modified a mitten pattern for the charted work, and just kind of winged the wristband pattern. I think she liked them.

Too bad I can't find any charted BSG designs. ::sigh::

ETA: I cast on 31 stitches on size 6 straights, knitted about an inch of ribbing, then 2 rows of garter, then pattern, then 2 rows of garter, then an inch of rib. After I was done, I seamed the back and wove in the ends.

Pattern: I used the logo portion of this mitten pattern, modifying it slightly. At the edges, I made the red/yellow/red lines reflect one another, and then added two yellow stitches on each end.

Awesome! I'll link this post in the archive :D

(And btw, I've recently gotten into BSG and I think I'll end up charting the main BSG symbol at some point...)

Ooooo. I tried fiddling with it, but I really suck at that sort of thing. ::chuckle::

there are just so few knitted items in the show, it's difficult to find something plausible. The first thing that comes to mind is something from Roslin's wardrobe.

If anyone knits any part of the colonial fleet uniform, I'll cry.
