Creeper Knitting Chart

I have been playing a lot of Minecraft lately, and love the pixelated graphics. Why? Well this makes them easy to adapt into knitting charts! I am pleased to share the first free knitting pattern to be hosted on KPOTD, a Creeper Knitting Chart.

10x10 sts

Most of the Minecraft graphics have many different shades in them. In the future characters knitting charts that I will share, I will do my best to minimize the number of colors so you can use as few colors at a time as possible. The creeper would look best (most authentic) if you use a variegated green yarn for the background.

When will you see the other characters? Well I will be publishing 7 other popular Minecraft character knitting charts this week! Who do you think you will see tomorrow?

    1. Amy,

      I am not sure if this is a serious question. If you are wondering why the physical hat itself is round, then my response is ";)". Or to suggest that you try the "Turn A Square" Hat pattern (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/turn-a-square).

      In knitting, like in Minecraft, it is hard to create a circle. But changes in tension can pull a rectangular shape more rounded. If the chart is coming out rounded, could you be pulling too tightly at the edges of your intarsia.

      Good luck! Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    1. I would make multiple creepers around the brim of the hat, each separated by 2 or so stitches.

      For example, use the Generic Skullcap knitting pattern. Cast on in black, knit the ribbing and then 2 rounds stockinette. I would then make stranded creepers as follows: K1 Black, FOLLOW 10 ST CREEPER CHART, K3 black, CREEPER CHART 10 sts, K2 Black, CREEPER CHART 10 sts, K3 black.... etc until you get to the last stitch. (I think the math should work out... you are basically alternating between 2 and 3 sts gaps between the crepers around the brim.)

      Good luck!
