Ninja Turtle Mask



Crochet Ninja Mask

During this last week I have tried and tested countless crochet masks. My goal was to make 4 ninja masks in the theme of the TMNT. 9 masks later I finally got it! I love the technique of making this mask and am very proud to say I came up with it. Now that I have made so many (using this pattern I have written out for you) I already have many more ideas for masks that I plan to test out in the upcoming weeks. So find a ninja or super hero near you and create them a mask of their own!

Row 2: (working on other side of the CH)  SC in same CH and next 47 CH. CH 8. Skip 8 stitches. SC in next 3 CH. CH 8, skip 8 stitches. SC in next 48 CH. CH 1, turn.

Row 3: SC in same stitch and next 37, HDC in next stitch, DC in next 9 stitches, DC into next CH. 2 DC in next 2 CH. 3 DC in next CH. 2 DC in next CH. HDC in next CH. 2 HDC in next CH.

Row 4: CH 1, SC around the entire piece. Join to first SC.

Now you need to weave in  your ends. Lay the piece on a flat surface and kill the acrylic yarn! To do this you will need to lay a wet washcloth or towel over the piece and iron it. For a “How to kill acrylic yarn”check out Moogly’s tutorial! *tip* killing and letting it air dry will help the fit

    “2 HDC in next CH. HDC 3 together. 2 HDC in next CH.” When you say HDC 3 together? Do you mean do 3 HDC in only one then do “2HDC in next chain?”

    I am not sure what I keep doing wrong….:(
    When I try to get to the end of the 2nd row where I am I do the last 48 it seems I need 10 more stitches before I get to MY end.

  2. Beverly Graham says

    And how do you print or save this? Not being able to makes the pattern useless to me as I cannot tie up my television for that long. My family would kill meas we do not have cable.

  3. Sally says

    Maybe it’s just me, but the mask seems to fold in half when it’s tied so it makes it difficult to see out of. Any suggestions? I’m thinking some kind of reinforcing stitch on one side, but I’d like your input! My kid loves this thing (he just can’t see out of it!), thank you!

  4. Sue-Ellen says

    I have made 2 of these. Is there a row missing? If I make it the way the pattern dictates it appears there is a row missing on the bottom of the mask. Geeze am I missing something or is the pattern incorrect?????

  5. Pam says

    I just finished one up and it was extremely easy to make. I am attaching it to a hat for my grandson. I know the rest of the family will also want one. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Krystal Garcia says

    Hello. Is this one size fits all? I want to make one for a 3 year old. How would I go about adjusting the size? Thank you so much.

    • CorinaCorina says

      My daughter wore the pink one at 3 years old… but I bet if you use a size smaller hook and maybe caron simply soft yarn… it would be a better fit.

  7. Christina says

    Just made a red one…super easy and fast…love the patten….I used an H hooker like suggested’ my son who is eight and bigger then most 8 yr olds can’t really see out the eyes and I did kill the acrylic.. so I’m wondering if I used a hook size larger would that fix that problem!!! Love the patteren.. thanks for sharing…God bless

  8. breee says

    Hi! I love this pattern. I am wondering if you mind if i sell these? If i do it online i would link back here. I plan on making a bunch up for a market i am doing next month. Thank you. Bree

  9. Lisa D says

    I’ve flogged 3 times but it still won’t lay flat for me. Did you have trouble with this before killing the acrylic? I’m dying to give a set to my grandson for him and his friends to play with!

  10. Norma Jean says

    I love these. I showed them to my son’s Sifu and am now selling them to all the students as part of the school’s campaign to help St. Jude Children’s Research hospital kick juvenile cancer’s butt!

  11. alicia says

    thank you for the free pattern :) I’m a bit confused. .on the 3rd row I have 7 stitches left stitch counts per row are row 1-116 row 2-122 row 3-115..what am I doing wrong? :(

    • CorinaCorina says

      With row one you start with 116 chain. You wont have the same about of stitches as chain due to the increases and decreases.

  12. Dianne says

    Had to keep starting over because I kept ending up with the extra stitches, like some of the other comments stated. I finally read your directions in the parentheses and walla, I am now having fun making them.

  13. Vivienne says

    These are great! This is my first time *killing* and I’m waiting for it top finish air drying right now.

    Question: I noticed someone else already asked, but I wanted to double check… mind if I make these to sell? I’ll include a link back to this page :)

  14. Jenni says

    Do you have a video tutorial for this somewhere? This is by far the best pattern I have seen but I am still a beginner and I can never seem to figure out how to “work on the other side of the chain…” If you could help me, I would really appreciate it!

    • CorinaCorina says

      Towards the top of the post there is a list of stitches used. There should be a video linked to how to make a HDC DEC/ HDC 2 Tog

  15. shweta says

    Hi. I absolutely loved your pattern. But when I made it for my 7 year old son, he’s not able to open his eyes properly. Is there a way we can adjust this for older kids. I used a 5 mm hook.

    • CorinaCorina says

      Without seeing your project it’s hard to say. My guesses are either you have 2 too many starting chains, or are you doing the decrease stitches?

  16. Mariela says

    Hola me interesa mucho aprender de tu patrón, pero no se ingles y el traductor de google es muy robotico, así que quería pedirte el favor si lo puedes traducir al español.

    Felicidades y gracias por el lindo antifaz

    • CorinaCorina says

      Estoy utilizando el traductor de google para responder . jaja. Pero , siento tener que decir que no sé mucho español aparte de contar hasta diez y diciendo las patatas fritas. Algún día espero que contratar a alguien para traducir mis patrones .. pero hasta que ponga más ingresos , no puedo pagar.

  17. Jen Munro says

    Hi, what a wonderful pattern! My question is if you killed the acrylic on the ties as well as the mask? I wasn’t sure if it mattered if the ties lost some of their stretch. Thanks!

  18. Callie says

    Hi, thanks for sharing your pattern!! I’ve had trouble making the eyes “match”. I was writing out your pattern and saw that in row 1 it’s 2hdc in next, hdc 3 tog, then 2hdc in next. Makes sense but on row 3 it’s 2hdc in next, HDC IN NEXT, then hdc 3 tog. Is this meant to have that extra hdc?
    Sorry if this is a dumb question, still kinda new at this but loving it!
