Knit Transformer Washcloth

Transformers are all the buzz at our house right now. We're planning a Transformer Birthday Party for my soon to be 5 year old. In the midst of searching for ideas I found this pattern for a Transformer washcloth here. Tested it out and it looks just like the autobot logo. I can envision the squares used to make a blanket. Just a thought.

*row 25 has a misprint in the pattern, should be:MB4, K3, P5, K5, P1, K2, P3, K2, P1, K5, P5, K3, MB4.

That is hilarious! I know my little guy would love that. I just saw that our cupcakes were made it to the finals in the crafty crow funny food contest. Thanks so much for voting for us!

I can't figure out how to find / print out directions! My mom really loves transformers and wants to make this! If you could e-mail them to me that would be awesome! dmbesq@gmail.com
Thanks so much, this looks AWESOME!

This is phenomenal. The comments made me smile as I realized everyone commented on how much children would love these, but I'm going to make some ASAP for my 32 year old boyfriend and his 27 year old brother, who will absolutely love them. Thanks for the post!

I think I would need some getting use to using knitted washcloths but I'll go for the blanket.

Nice one. I made a similar graph myself and used it to make a patch with "illusion knitting" for the front of a sweater for my husband. From straight on it just looks like stripes, but from the side you can see the Autobots face! I call it More than Meets the Eye. The chart's available if you want to have a go at the technique.

Did you do this pattern with purl rather than knit? or did you just photo it the other way round? It looks so much better than mine!! Im thinking of unraveling and starting again. Thanks for the misprint correction by the way!

I photographed it the other way around. That side looked the best to me.

Please excuse me while I do a little shameless self-promotion here, but I thought I'd let you guys know that I designed a companion cloth with the Decepticons logo on it. You can find it here:

Happy Knitting!
