Super Mario Bros Knit Patterns by colormist Super Mario Bros Knit Patterns by colormist
Couldn't decide if this was digital work or fiber art. It's meant to be used for a fiber art application, so more people would look here rather than in the digital section. -- Moved to the tutorial section/artisan crafts. :)

First installment of several. Backgrounds of the pieces can be whatever color you choose. I think my backgrounds are going to be grey or blue.

I'm making a super mario bros. blanket and thought I should share. ;)

Super Mario Bros (c) Nintendo & et. al.

OMG! Thanks so much for sharing!! I had no idea if my patterns would actually work (as I had no time to test them). I am so happy to see the end results!! I'm going to share it with all my friends! :D

How do I get knitting patterns for Mario characters

This is just a knitting chart. You have to know how to read them and be able to apply them to your sweater/scarf/hat/etc appropriately. I made the above patterns using sprites

Here's a link to get you started: [link]

Sure, so long as you provide a link back. I also have the patterns on Ravelry (same account name), if that's easier for you. :)

I never understood how to read these patterns. Is one small square inside the larger squares a single stitch?

I do believe so. I actually have not tried to knit this and it was my first attempt at making a pattern. O_O I have yet to see any results from people knitting with this pattern. I don't think that's a good sign. :(

I'm in the midst of a scarf right now. I'll whip out my yarn for this project and try one next. Then we'll have a definite example. :D I'll be sure to post the example in my gallery and link in the comments of the patterns.

Hi i LOVE these patterns!!! I found them through Ravelry.com and my son started begging me to make them into a blanket for him. I know you were talking about mabey using Fair Isle or Intarsia but i am almost done with the ghost block and i used Tunisian Crochet. It is turning out really nice. (a bit smaller than i thought i need to go up in needle size.) I just wanted to tell you and say thanks for sharing. Rachel

Yay! I'm glad someone finally made them. I never thought of using crochet (as I hadn't crocheted in decades when I made this pattern), but just recently started crocheting a blanket, so I might have to try that instead.

Did you post the results on Ravelry or DA? I would love to see pictures. :)

Would you be able to recommend any other tutorials on how to read these patterns? I'm only a basic knitter atm but would like to be able to attempt this awesomeness xD

colormist Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2010  Professional Interface Designer
There are two ways to implement this pattern: intarsia and fair isle.

I tried fair isle and failed horribly (on the simplest block pattern), so I'm going to recommend intarsia. This tutorial looks pretty simple and straight forward: [link]

I have not tried intarsia yet, so I'm not sure how easy it is to do. :\

Good luck and let me know how it works!

I just randomly found this on a google search looking at knit patterns. I couldn't believe this when I saw it. I'm currently working on a Super Smash Bros Brawl blanket for my boyfriend who loves the game to death. I'm making the roster with all 35 characters. I have two left to make and then I'll be working on the name tags and then sewing it all together. I'll have to put a picture of my finished product up once I'm done. Otherwise you can check out my knitting blog: [link]
I haven't put up any other photos than the ones I have on there now. I will eventually though.

Awesome! I made these patterns a long time ago and have yet to knit it all up (to even see if it'll work). The worst part so far was finding the appropriate yarn colors.

I'd love to see your final version when you're finished. :D

:D These guys are next in my knitting queue. Totally not looking forward to the second attempt at making them. My first attempt was a complete failure. :(

I'm glad you can find some use from them! That's why I posted them. :)

I am hoping to convert them to bead patterns eventually. They give me a really great starting point.

Hey (: I'm actually working on one of these right now - I'm doing the red mushroom ^.^ It's fun...

Although I know how to both knit and crochet, I thought I'd try crochetting this and it's turning out pretty cool =) I hope you work on your blanket soon!

Awesome! Please send me photos when you get one done. I tried making the brick block, but I didn't read up fully on how to do intarsia and was accidentally doing fair-aisle. Needless to say, it was puckering all over the place, so I ripped everything out and gave up. >_<

Yay! Color charts! I think my boys would love it if I made them a blankie with these on them...

The big decision, though, is should I crochet it or knit it? ;P

. o O (and will I get it finished while they are still young enough to appreciate it? ;D)

"and will I get it finished while they are still young enough to appreciate it?"

That being the MAIN issue. ;)

My friend who's doing a knit-along with me on this one is also making a tetris blanket out of granny squares. It pretty much rocks. I don't think this one would work with granny squares, though. :\

Hehe, yes. With all the WIPs & UFOs I've got lying around this place, that is a huge issue! ;)

I've always loved the versatility of the humble Granny Square! :nod:

I've been wanting to do something similar for a Mario Bros. themed hat series, but I wasn't planning on nearly as much detail/shading as you have here. Really, the quality of these is stunning! I can't wait to see that blanket =D

Hopefully it'll turn out alright. I'm more worried about the shape of my stitching and how the colors of yarn I've chosen for the patterns work together. It might just turn out that I have to drop a few colors to save my sanity on a couple of the characters --cough--PrincessPeach--cough-cough

flutterbyfae Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I haven't tried intarsia yet, but the patterns seem to show that the colors will work together. And yes, Peach is super detailed, lol. Whatever you decide, I think it'll look great--can you really go wrong with combining two awesome things like yarn and Mario? ;)

I'm half curious how this would come out in crochet, since I can't knit. I might give it a try.

Awesome patterns though. Nice work!

HA! Yours were the inspiration! I just looked through your gallery to see what patterns you had designed. (Hmmm..That's why I recognized your avatar... >_>; ) I saw your mushroom pattern and thought it would look nice with some shading--a la Super Mario World. I don't know what you were doing with your square, but I thought it might be cool to make a blanket out of a bunch of squares. :)

I started out trying to edit your pattern, but figured it would be easier to just use pixel sprites as the base for the pattern. :)
