For a recent swap on Ravelry, a popular knitting and crocheting site here in interwebsland, I got partnered up with a very cool woman who loves Nintendo. I thought a lot about what I could make her – and what patterns already exist in the world for Nintendo lovers – and I decided to design Kirby . . . with hats!
He’s so cute with hats, right?! I want hats for days – and that got me thinking. Between us, I bet we could do ALL THE HATS! In fact, I’m sure of it! Hence, I’m launching The Kirby Hat Project.
Here’s my pattern for the Kirby, as well as these two hats you see here: Kirby with Hat_wonderstrange They are worked in the round without joining rows, and I a variety of used worsted weight yarns.
If you design a hat for Kirby, leave a comment below with your designer name (for design credit) and a link to your blog / pattern page. Assuming you follow some VERY basic rules, I will add you to the list below!
Rules? Yup, rules.
- Your hat pattern has to be free.
- Your hat pattern has to produce a hat that fits this Kirby (I realize that seems obvious, but you know, sometimes the obvious needs stating).
- Your hat pattern has to be a proper pattern. I don’t mean that it has to be a PDF with your logo or have 88 pictures; I just mean that for the benefit of everyone, please don’t give us, “Do a few rows of sc, then decrease, then do some cluster stitches – I forget how many.” That’s vague and confusing and makes people sad! We want to be happy! With hats! And clear instructions!
