Learning intarsia with the Punisher

Two of my favorite things are crocheting and comic books. I never really thought to try to crochet anything from the comics I read before. But, while taking to a friend, it hit me. I could crochet that! That being the Punisher's logo:

First, I had to grid it and work out how to do intarsia crochet. Grid was finished this morning, a quick try or two on the intarsia process and I got started.

I ended up with this:

Not the best, but pretty good for a first try. I think it would have been better had my printer not flaked out on me and not wanted to print black ink. Hard to do a black and white grid in shades of gray. I'm going to try again, different Punisher logo just because the he has the best logo out there.

Nice work! My friend has requested that I make him a hat w/this logo on it & I was wondering if you would be willing to post the pattern grid?
