Transformers Toque Pattern

IMG_0522

I sat down today and wrote out the pattern for the toque. I've put together a .pdf file with the instructions, pictures and charts. I'm trying out a file hosting site, so let's see how that works out...

Transformers Toque Pattern Please let me know if this link isn't working. This is my first time using this hosting site and I'm not sure how well it will work yet.

Disclaimer: This pattern has not been test-knit. I wrote it up after the fact from memory, but I'm pretty sure it's accurate.

Please let me know if you knit one! I would love to see them.

I told the boy about posting the pictures and the response here and on Craftster and his big concern was that he wouldn't have a unique toque anymore. So I explained that each person will interpret the pattern/charts in their own way and each will be different. He still was concerned (jokingly so, I hope) so I assured him that NONE of the commenters would be from the Calgary area... Boys. So, dear friends, when you make your own Transformers toque, if you happen to be in the Calgary area, if you see the boy in the black & orange Transformers toque and you are wearing your own Transformers toque, do me a favor and hide yours? K? And tell him you like his...

Please feel free to email me at subloke AT hotmail DOT com if you have any questions about the pattern or have difficulty with my instructions...

  3. I love that toque - I followed you here because it is featured on Craftster today. And I am in Calgary but it is beyond my skill set so if I see him I will just run up and gush over how cool his toque is while my husband stands jealously by and wishes he had a toque just like it.

    Thank you for sharing this pattern. I just finished one up for my nephew. I had to shrink the chart a bit for a smaller head but it still looks great. Up next is one for my husband!

  6. Eeeee!

    My husband and I are huge Transformers fans, and I was hoping that maybe you might have the Decepticon insignia pattern as well, or tips on making one? I'd adore to adorn my knits with a pattern of these insignia, albeit a bit smaller. I'm thinking a scarf, or mittens, or maybe a snuggly throw for he, I, and the cats.

    Anywho, thanks for sharing this pattern! Glee!

  8. Thanks for the pattern! I'm working on one for myself*, and I've got one in the works for my brother, but instead of the charts you provided, I'm using a chart I have for his school's logo, and a supportive phrase. I just hope he appreciates the work that has gone into it so far, and the work that will go into it!

    I'll probably wind up having to make one for my friend Melz as well, but knowing her, she'll pick out purple and black, whereas I'm going with red and white...>.< Why must I be friends with a fragging 'Con?! *laughs*

  13. Just wanted to say thanks for the pattern. My son was sitting with me as I was looking for a new test knit and someone had recently finished this pattern. My son was so excited! He asked for a black and red one. I can't wait to go get the yarn. Don't worry we're moving to Germany but I'm sure your son has outgrown the hat anyway!

  17. I made this one last year and I loved making it! I did one little change, I made two, one with autobots on both side in blue and red and one with decepticons on both sides in black and purple! Gave the autobots to my husband and the decepticons to my brother and they both LOVE them!! Everywhere they go in the winter time they get lots of compliments :)

  19. I made this for my Son and he flipped out...the fact that it could
    Transform (turn it inside out) was too cool. I am now making one for the Soldier we adopted, he loves Transformers too. Thanks again for the great pattern.
