Hi guys...here's a template that might work a little better for ya...

Just fill in the white stitches. It's like doing 8-bit art!

Also...the good folks over at Geeky Jerseys might make these (or some of these) up, if there was enough interest...

So, if you think that you'd like one of these sweaters (and Geeky Jerseys makes a real nice product) go to their Facebook page and "like" this photo...

Thanks.

Almost forget...Here's their link... http://www.geekyjerseys.com/

Do you think you could try and do some NHL teams. That would be sick!

Sparky sent me a template and was able to modify it to 2 colours as a bitmap. Might be useful for those lower tech users that don't have Photobucket and the like.

Looks to be working in Paint.net and MSPaint.

Just use the "Fill with Color" aka "Paint Bucket" to fill.

[Edit: Feb. 1/14 - deleted first image uploaded and uploaded cleaner updated template]

I want that Canada sweater, although I am rooting for Team USA.

I'd be happier if these were being worn over the current Nike disaster.

Too bad you dont do Norway and switzerland

These far outclass the real sweaters.

I hate you Sparky. This stuff is brilliant.

Thanks for the input guys.

Sadly, I won't have the time gesier.

However, It looks like my 'chunky-knit sweater' concepts were on the money...

If they replaced that sweater with that concept the world would be a better place...and I'm not even american

Sparky - if you have any problems with me posting this here, I will gladly remove it.

Just thought it may be better here than starting another thread for this little item.

Recently been rereading George R. R. Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire" series and started watching the Game of Thrones series.

Came up with this over the weekend using my simplified Paint friendly version of Sparky's faux-knit sweater design.

Hope the image on the shoulder is recognizable as a snowflake. Sweater is lacking much colour and is a bit stark ;)

If I ever made a back template, I would probably just put "Winter is Coming" for the nameplate above the back number.

That would be a sweet-lookin' sweater, greyraven. Nice job.

I have no problem at all with you or anyone else posting a sweater concept on this thread.

It'd be kind of interesting to see what can be done using that template.

Thanks g.

Thanks Sparky.

Did a little cutting and pasting along with a little drawing today and converted the front of the jersey into a back template.

Also, made the back of the Stark jersey.
