Mario Kart Power Ups

Mario! Mario! Mario! Knitted Mario Items FTW!

I love Mario Kart! Geeky gaming things work so well with knitting!! I started this project in February 2010 but I didn't get very far. As soon as I found out my brother and sister in law were expecting their first child I dropped everything to make baby things!!! I have picked this back up now.

I am aiming to make knitted versions of all of the items from the item boxes:

I have managed to make teeny tiny versions of a lot of the items (max. size a couple of inches), but I really want to make larger 'stuffed toy' versions.

I have come across some problems with the mushrooms; I can't get the increases right. /Cry

There are patterns available for the Invincibility Star, Shell and the Bullet. Click on the picture for the pattern. I'm not entirely happy with the bullet, and am in the process of rewriting it. The original pattern is still available on my old blog tho. They are also available to link on ravelry.
