Hockey Helmet

Free Hockey Helmet Pattern
After searching the web for hockey helmets, I decided to give it a try. This free pattern is for size 12 months. In this picture, my daughter is wearing it and she is 15 months old. Since its made from cotton, it stretches real nice.  This is not one of my easiest paterns to follow. So, if anyone has any questions I would be more than happy to help all that I can. Happy crocheting!!

Aaaand my camera died. I really wanted to get pictures of these next couple steps. I am sorry that I cant have them. I would stop and wait to continue until the camera is charged…. but I dont have the patience :) . If you do not understand something  in my directions feel free to contact me or msg me on my facebook fanpage. :)

STEP  7:

Here, I used SC across the front of the hat.  Starting at the start of the chin strap, across the front and down to the end of the chin strap (not actually stitching on the chin strap, just the front of the helmet)

Finish off

 

STEP 8:

SC through round 9  of step 1. To do this I attached the yarn on the back side of the helmet, around the post of the stitch, Then I put the hook under the post and back out the other side of the post, so that the post is over my hook, I wrapped the yarn around the hook, pulled the hook through and did a SC. I continued this around the hat. slip stitch into the first SC, finish off and connect and do the same to round 11 of step one.

Finish off and weave in all your ends. wallah!

Dont ya just love this face :) lol

    Maybe instead of using cotton, use something a little lighter weight than the peaches and creme. And a size or 2 smaller hook. I think Simply soft would work up well.. but I wouldn’t know for sure unless I tried it.
