The Instructables site have made a cushion using PicsToKnits of their Robot logo. They have done a great job of not only demonstrating how to use this site but also knitting an absolutely fabulous cushion. They went with the classic dimensions of 2×2 squares

The Instructables user KiteWife has included photos of the process of putting together the squares

This is the original image that she used to convert to a knitting pattern. It shows that often simple images work better than photographs as a starting point

And here is the pattern from PicsToKnits that she worked from. Thanks for doing such a great job!

  1. i’m glad i discovered the site and i can’t wait to put it to use, but can’t we have more examples of completed projects? i’m not sure i could ever undertake a project using 32 colors for example.

  3. Thank you so much. I am making a “communication lap afghan” for a friend using your site. I will try to send a photo when it is done. I will definitely give you credit on Knitting Paradise website! Wish you could develop one for crochet.
