TMNT Inspired Gloves


Hey Rockers!

I've got a new pattern for purchase in my Etsy Shop to go with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) Inspired Hat. I designed TMNT Inspired fingerless gloves to match, for purchase listed at $2.99 here.

I originally designed the hat for my sons as both were begging for "turtle masks." The my youngest son pestered me for matching gloves too. The pattern includes sizes Child to Adults...so basically everyone in the whole family can look like an adolescent cartoon/movie fanatic!


If you do purchase the pattern I would love an honest review of the pattern and shop.

In you don't have an Etsy account, and would rather get the pattern at Ravelry...it's listed there too!

Alright. I've plugged my new Etsy shop listing and imposed on your time long enough! Here's the url just in case it's easier for you to find:

Rock the hook,
Tia

TMNT Inspired Hat


Hey Rockers!

I've got a new pattern for purchase in my Etsy Shop and it's getting great reviews! You'll find my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) Inspired Hat for purchase listed at $4.99 here.

I originally designed this hat for my sons as both were begging for "turtle masks." Then, my oldest son said "Why can't you just make it hat that looks like a mask?" Bingo! Inspiration struck. The pattern includes sizes 12 months to Adults...so basically everyone in the whole family can look like an adolescent cartoon/movie fanatic!

If you do purchase the pattern I would love an honest review of the pattern and shop.


If you don't have an Etsy account, or have never shopped on Etsy...

I highly recommend you visit. Soon. Because there are huge amounts of cuteness and unique products just waiting for you. You can find everything from vintage lamps to wooden iPad stands. And everything in between. I also like to lurk on Etsy just to get inspiration for new ideas or designs for my crochet.

Create an adorable candy corn shaped hat for your little one to wear on Halloween, or even for a fun photo shoot prop. This free crochet pattern is adorable for fall, and works up in 1 – 2 hours, depending on your speed. I created a matching pair for my girlfriend’s twin girls and the hats received a sweet response. Trick or treating with your baby, sporting this quirky hat will make for a memorable Halloween. The pattern is laid out for size 3 – 6 months. See my notes at the bottom for making a smaller or larger version.

Add this pattern to your Ravelry Queue.

Size: Baby (3 - 6 months)

Skill Level:  Easy to Intermediate

Materials: Red Heart Yarn, White, Orange, and Yellow

Hook size: H/5.00mm

CC = color change

Gauge: 4 dc = 1 inch

Instructions:
Yellow
Ch 60. Careful not to twist ch, join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1. Sc in each ch around. At end of rnd DO NOT join. Work in continuous rnds. (Do not join at end of rounds throughout pattern.
Rnd 2 – 8: Sc in each st around. (Piece should measure about 2” wide.)

CC = Orange

Rnd 36: Sc 2, sc2tog, sc 2, sc2tog, sc2. (8 sc)
Rnd 37: Sc2tog, sc 2, sc2tog, sc 2. (6 sc) Finish, leave 6 – 8” tail.
Finish the hat point by flattening hat point between your fingers. With yarn needle, thread tail back and forth through last 6 sc (3 on each side when flattened).
Finish, weave ends. (See image)


Optional Edge:
Find starting place on edge of hat. Sl st to join at first ch sp. Sk 1 sp, 5 dc in next sp, sk 1 sp, *sl st to next sp, sk 1 sp, 5 dc in next sp, sk 1 sp, sl st to next sp; repeat from * around 11 times (for a total of 12 shells). Finish, weave ends.


Notes:
To make a smaller hat (0 – 3 months), decrease starting chain to 50 and follow the decreasing pattern beginning with Rnd 9. Your rounds will decrease in scs according to how many times you repeat the decrease. 
To make a larger hat (6 – 12 months), increase starting chain to 70 and follow the decreasing pattern beginning with Rnd 9. Your rounds will decrease in scs according to how many times you repeat the decrease.
For example, in Rnd 9 the decrease pattern repeats 6 times. (60 – 6 = 54 scs) In Rnd 10, it also repeats 6 times, so you should have 6 fewer scs. (54 – 6 = 48 scs)



You are all done. Happy Autumn!

Rock the hook,
