Of course, with a name like that, there was no doubt in my mind of the motif for the knitted cover.
Introducing, the beloved Optimus Prime from Transformers - the knitted version! :)
For creating the logo of Optimus I used a nifty pattern generator I found online called Knitpro. It's completely free, and it works well on some things, but not others. You upload an image, and it generates the pattern for you. With a black and white logo like this, it worked really well, and saved me some extra work. It's definitely worth checking out.
Below is the Optimus Prime logo I found on google...
After that it was just to knit away, pretty straight forward. I went over and did some slight tweaking around some of the edges with a needle and yarn, sewing a few stitches to even out some of the lines. I think the result was pretty good.
Here are some close-ups :)
This would work great for a sweater or a cap as well I'm sure, don't you think? :)
