Knitted Alphabet

Here's a knitted alphabet I designed that's sized for mittens, gloves, and socks (looks good at gauge 6-8 st/inch). Probably many have done this before me but I haven't bothered to search the InterWebz...

You can use cross-stitch patterns in a pinch but be aware that the proportions of a knit stitch, unlike a cross stitch, are not square. For alphabets it's not a biggie, but for other designs this is noticeable. Stockinette in sport or fingering yarn has a width::height ratio of 5::4 (it's wider than it is tall).
