Find an image you like online, and drop it in here:

Their web application will grid it for you. I used this to do a college logo in a baby blanket. It worked perfectly.

For letters, Knitty has a set of washcloths with words on them. You can get an idea of the planning process from their charts: http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/PATTbacktoschool.html

For pictures, this is a breast cancer awareness pattern:

I think that cross stitch patterns will in general be too square for making a knitting pattern. But you can print knitting graph paper that matches your gauge: http://www.tata-tatao.to/knit/matrix/e-index.html

and then just draw/trace/superimpose your design.

Good luck!
