Good morning!!

My kids and I watched a sneak preview of Transformers last night -- Oh. My. Word. That movie was the BEST movie I've seen my entire life!! :woohoo: My boy, a serious Harry Potter fan, said even Harry and Ron would have liked Transformers!! :teehee:

Anyhow .. I was wondering if anyone ever came across a transformers type knitting pattern anywhere? I saw some machine knit caps on eBay, but nothing else so far.

Thanks!!!

I found these charts for decepticon (http://flickr.com/photos/twoonesix/168804084/in/photostream/) and autobot (http://flickr.com/photos/twoonesix/168804079/in/photostream/) awhile back. They have been in my to knit queue for awhile.

Have fun! :)

I think I saw a Transformers hat on Craftster possibly with a pattern. I love Transformers!

I did an illusion scarf with Decepticons on it last summer. see my blog thread for a pic or two. LMK if you have questions. :D

A word of caution if you use these charts.... they are not knitting charts. Knitting charts have something like a 5:7 ratio as where these charts seem to be 1:1. That means that if you go by these exactly, your autobots and decepticons will look kind of squished.

If you have a pic in your computer, you can go here (http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/) and make your own.

Just make sure you click one of the knitting settings. (Preferably portrait, unless your pic is sideways)

I actually find that with stranding, my stitches become fairly square. I can't decide which technique would be better for this yet... but I might make myself one! Maybe an Autobots hat for when I am feeling good and Deceptikons for my naughty days. Te hee. This would make great socks for someone who appreciates such things as knitting and killer robots.

:roflhard: knitting and killer robots :roflhard: Makes me crack up because I brought my Harry Potter PoA scarf (http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=60816) with me to the Transformer movie to knit during the previews :roflhard:

madametj posted this one over in the stashbuster ideas thread. thought i'd post it here in case anyone missed it. it's a really cool dishcloth (http://knittingmemories.blogspot.com/2007/07/transformers-cloth.html). now the question is, how many of these can i make before i'm completely sick of them and never want to look at another transformer again? :knitting: :knitting: :knitting:

If you ladies end up charting out the transformers, would you be so kind to post it? I have NO CLUE how to even work a chart so much less transfer them to the correct format. I would love to make this for my brother, I already have the dishclothes on my my 'deck'.
