Iron Man Faceplate Pattern

...somewhere between the stitches...

As promised… Here’s the FREE pattern for the Iron Man hat faceplate. Please keep in mind that this pattern in ONLY for the faceplate. There are many free patterns available online for simple crochet hats. For best results, use a pattern that uses bulky yarn or two strands of worsted weight yarn held together.

Please feel free to make as many Iron Man hats as you’d like with this pattern, but kindly link back to this post/my blog if you post photographs of your Iron Man hats online.

Hope you enjoy!

Chi-Town Crochet Cowl


Chi-Town Crochet Cowl
by Kathy Kelly

Yarn: 1 skein Lamb’s Pride Worsted 190 yards
Size K 6.5 mm hook, or size to achieve a relaxed stitch and flexible fabric, gauge is not important.
darning needle
This pattern uses a multiple of 4 + 1 stitches.
Example is 30” long and 8” wide, joined with a single twist to make a moebius.

Stitch abbreviations U.S. Terminology used
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
sp = space
sk st = skip stitch

Make enough chains so that when the ends are joined it will easily fit over your head. Be sure the final number is a multiple of 4 + 1.  (I chained 81).
Note: When working dc rows do not work into 1st stitch directly underneath turning ch. Ch 3 turning chain counts as a dc throughout.

Row 1: dc in 4th…

Oh, I almost forgot to share this!  I used my EMBELLISH-KNIT!  for the tie.  What a terrific gadget!  Saved me hours!  Anyone else have one?  I love it!

EMBELLISH-KNIT! Not sure where I ordered mine, but here’s the cheapest I found today:–p-21266.aspx
