When I was a little girl, I LOVED Ninja Turtles! I had all the action figures, and even dressed up as one for Halloween (my mom made the coolest costumes!). I think it’s awesome that they’ve made a comeback, but I’m not too happy with their new look 😕. Anyways, I decided I had to crochet a hat, but couldn’t find a free pattern online. So I made up my own, and now I’m sharing with you! I hope you enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions!
P.S. I’d love to see your finished hats!
If you’d love to buy this awesome hat, head over to my shop
You may sell what you make from this pattern, but please do not sell the pattern itself! If you sell items online, I ask that you please link back to the pattern🙂
Worsted weight yarn in green and any color you want for the mask
Small amount of white and black yarn for the eyes
H hook for toddler size (18-20 inches)
I hook for child size (19-20 1/2 inches)
Yarn needle for attaching eyes and weaving in the ends
***UPDATED May 2014***
I have had a few comments (and even some complaints!) about the size. I adjusted the pattern so hopefully that won’t be a problem. You can also use any basic beanie pattern and change colors when needed to make the mask. I am more than willing to help those who need it in the best way I can.
