Fionna Adventure Time Face Applique Crochet Pattern

As a request due to the popularity of my Adventure Times previous patterns (see here) I came up with the idea for some easy face appliques to apply to different projects instead of making a hundred (okay exaggeration) detailed character hats for the kids in my family and mother’s school.  So that is how this Fionna face applique was born.  Don’t miss out on the Finn face applique previously posted too (Get his free pattern here).  This is a beginner friendly pattern and is worked in the round.

Have you not heard of Fionna or Adventure Time yet?  I guess that’s possible. 😉  If you haven’t and want to learn more, please check out information here.  This is the inspirational picture I used when making this applique.

Fionna Adventure Time Face Applique Crochet Pattern Notes

Colored Face Area: using light tan, beige or pale pink yarn
Round 1: In a magic (adjustable) circle ch 2 before placing the following st in this order in to the circle: (1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 2 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 2 sc). Pull ovalish circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 st total)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st 3 st, 1 hdc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next 3 st and 1 hdc in last 2 st. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (16 st total)
Before cutting yarn measure out a yarn tail length long enough to be able to securely sew the face area in place during assembly steps of the applique. Cut yarn and pull through last loop on hook to secure end. To avoid tangling up of yarn tails until I am ready to sew them in place I just wrap them in little bundles and pull yarn through center but not too tightly or it can be hard to undo if you have it like that for a long length of time. Place to side until needed in finishing steps for assembly.

Head / Hat Applique Base with ears: using white yarn
Round 1: In a magic (adjustable) circle ch 2 before placing the following st in this order in to the circle: (1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 2 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 2 sc). Pull ovalish circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 st total)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st 3 st, 1 hdc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next 3 st and 1 hdc in last 2 st. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (16 st total)

Round 4: Ch 6 before placing 1 sc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 sc in each of the following 2 ch, sl st in last ch, sl st in following st of round, make 1 sl st in each of the following 5 st around, ch 7 before placing 1 sc in 4th ch from hook, 1 sc in each of the following 2 ch, sl st in last ch, sl st in the following st of round, make 1 sl st in each of the following st for the rest of the round. Sl st in the base of the chain st from start of round.
Before cutting yarn measure out a yarn tail length long enough to be able to securely sew the your applique on after assembly. Cut yarn and pull through last loop on hook to secure end. To avoid tangling up of yarn tails until I am ready to attach them to desired project I just wrap them in little bundles and pull yarn through center but not too tightly or it can be hard to undo if you have it like that for a long length of time. Place to side until needed in finishing steps for assembly.

Bangs / Hair on side strand: using golden / yellow yarn
Make a chain of 10. Cut yarn leaving a yarn tail long enough to sew in place on to rim of face area before pulling through last loop on hook. Place to side until ready.

Eyes (Make 2)using black yarn
Cut a short length of black yarn. Make a double knot in center of yarn piece. Double knot around the previous knot. That’s it. That is your eye. Repeat the process for the second eye. Place to side until needed in assembly.

Smile: using black yarn
Cut a short length of black yarn long enough to stitch a smile on to the face area during following steps in assembly. Place to side until steps require this length. I normally cut 3 to 4 times the length I will be stitching since I double stitch everything but whatever you need is fine. :)

Fionna Adventure Time Face Applique Crochet Pattern3

Assembly / Finishing Instructions:

The following steps require these completed crochet features:
1 – Applique  Fionna head base
1 – Colored face area
1 – hair strand piece
2 – eyes
1 – smile
Using the yarn tail on of your eyes you created in previous steps, attach to desired location on colored face area by making a double knot in the back of your project. Weave in ends and cut off extra length in the back. Repeat for second eye.
Taking the yarn tail left on Fionna’s smile and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in desired place near the center bottom of the colored face area.  Once securely in place pull yarn to the backside of the face area and fasten off.
Taking the yarn tail left on Fionna’s bangs / hair strand piece and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in desired place along the top left side of the colored face area.  You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own if you are looking for guidance.  Once securely in place pull yarn to the backside of the face area and fasten off.
Now your colored face area is ready to be sewn on to the applique base of Fionna’s head.  Using your  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and yarn tail left on the face area to sew it securely in place on to the applique base.  You can reference my pictures to see how I placed mine if you are needing any guidance.  Once attached, pull yarn tail to the backside of the applique and fasten off.  You should only have one yarn tail left in white yarn on the applique base. Do not fasten this off as you will use this to attach it to your desired project.
Now that your applique is assembled you are ready to decide what project you want to add it to.  This applique is a super fun but small project that works for most hats, bags, cozies and more!

Ready to attach to your desired project? Move on to next step:
You will use the remaining yarn tail from your Fionna face applique and the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew your finished Adventure Time applique directly on to your desired project.  Once you have secured it in place, pull the yarn to the inside (or backside depending on project) before fastening off.
Now take the time to look over your finished applique to make sure you didn’t miss any loose ends, yarn tails etc.  If you find any, go ahead and fasten them off now.
That’s it. All done! One cool Fionna worthy project. I hope you enjoyed this pattern, if you have any questions please let me know. Happy crafting! :)

Adventure Time's Finn Character Hat Crochet Pattern

This character hat is my crochet interpretation of the character Finn from the popular cartoon series Adventure Time.  I see him everywhere I turn and since my nephew is a giant fan as well as myself, I decided to make Finn plus a Jake hat for him to wear.  I posted it on my personal Facebook account when I finished it a few days ago and you would be surprised by how many adults said they wanted one.  See? Cartoons are not just for kids. Even big kids like myself can enjoy them. 😀  This is actually a lot easier than it may look. If you can work in the round and are an experienced beginner or up, give Finn a try.  It makes a great and fast hat project to gift for a fan or pop on yourself for some fun.  I love wearing my silly hats out in public.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Have you not heard of Finn or Adventure Time yet?  I guess that’s possible. 😉  If you haven’t and want to learn more, please check out information here.

Adventure Time's Finn Character Hat Crochet Pattern (2)

Pattern Instructions:
*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe
The hat in this picture is made with my free Easy Peasy Youth Sized (Age 3-10 years old) Double Crochet Beanie  Hat Pattern which you can find  here as a foundation for the project. Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size of the free pattern you want for your project.

Hat Base: in main color white yarn  Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice

Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start building your Adventure Time Finn character hat. Starting off we are going to add a contrast trim to the bottom of the beanie. This is done in a bright blue to mimic the colors in Finn’s outfit.  No matter what size easy peasy beanie you choose, the instructions are the same.
Taking your bright blue yarn, sl st to attach yarn to last st worked on beanie hat.  Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each st around until you have reached back to beginning of round. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round.  Fasten off.

Hat ears (Make 2): using white yarn
Note: I tend to make my st tight when working pieces that will be stuffed so if you tend to make looser sts with wider gaps, try switching your hook out for a size or two smaller to help keep the st gaps smaller.
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 6 hdc in circle. Pull circle closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (6 hdc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 hdc in 1st st and each of the following 5 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (12 hdc)
Round 3-5: Ch 2 before placing 1 hdc in 1st st and each of the following 11 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (12 hdc)
Round 6: Ch 1 , make 1 hdc in 1st 6 st, 1 sc in next 2 st, sl st in last 4 st. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (6 hdc, 2 sc) This will give you the slanted edge to attach to your rounded beanie so they are pointing up and more upright :)
Leave an extra long tail to attach to hat, cut yarn, pull through yarn and put to side until needed in assembly. If you choose the next optional step for bottoms for this piece, make sure you leave an extra little bit of length to secure it in place during assembly.

This feature will work on toddler, youth, pre-teen, teen, womens and men sized hats very well. For smaller sizes do all st in sc instead of hdc and skip round 4.

Bottom to hat ear piece (Make 2) *optional*: using white yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 12 hdc in circle. Pull circle closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (12 hdc) Fasten off and repeat for second piece.

This feature will work on toddler, youth, pre-teen, teen, womens and men sized hats very well. For smaller sizes do all st in sc instead of hdc as step above calls for.

Colored face area: using tan, dark cream or light peach yarn
Round 1: Ch 12.  Place 1 dc in to the  3rd ch from the hook, make 1 dc  in next  8 ch and 2 dc in last ch. Rotate your piece so you are now working back of foundation chain.  Place 1 dc in 1st ch on this side (same as last used in previous side), 1 dc in next 8 ch and 2 dc in last st (same as 1st worked in round).  Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round.  You will now have your foundation round for your oval worked in the round.  (22 dc)

Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in each of the following 8 st, 2 dc in following 3 st, 1 dc in next 8 st, 2 dc in next 2 st, 1 dc in same st as 1st dc in round worked. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round.  (28 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in 1st, 1 dc in each of the following 8 st, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in following 9 st, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st , 2 dc in next st and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (34 dc)
Round 4: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st, 1 sc in each of the following 8 st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in following 10 st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 2 st,  2 sc in following st and 1 sc in remaining st.  Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. (40 sc)
Leave an extra long yarn tail that is long enough to secure the face area directly on to the beanie hat once assembled during finishing off steps, cut yarn and pull through. Place to side until needed in finishing off stage.

This feature will work on toddler, youth, pre-teen, teen, womens and men sized hats very well. For smaller sizes:
For toddlers you may want to switch to hdc instead of dc throughout this feature if you want to scale it down some.
For 6 months to 12 months sized hats, switch to hdc instead of dc for rounds 1 and 2.  For round 3, make it in sc instead of dc pattern calls for and leave off round 4.
For newborn to 6 months sized hats, make round 1 in hdc, round 2 and 3 in sc.  Leave off round 4. 

Eyes (Make 2): using black yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 6 sc in circle. Pull circle closed. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in the round. (6 sc)
Leave tail long enough to secure on to the face area during assembly, cut yarn and pull through. Place to side until needed in finishing off stage. Repeat for second eye.

This feature will work on toddler, youth, pre-teen, teen, womens and men sized hats very well. For smaller sizes that toddler, newborn to 12 months, make 3 sc in circle instead.

Smile: using black yarn
Make a chain of  8. Leave tail long enough to secure on to the face area during assembly, cut yarn and pull through. Place to side until needed in finishing off stage.

This feature will work on toddler, youth, pre-teen, teen, womens and men sized hats very well. For smaller sizes, newborn to 12 month sizes, make a ch of 5 instead of ch of 8 as step above calls for.

Finishing off:
Starting with your colored face area assembly, use the tail left on your smile ch and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew your smile in desired location on the face area.  You can reference the clipart for Finn above or my pictures to see how I placed my own for this feature.  Once securely in place, pull yarn to back side of face area and fasten off.
Next take the yarn tail left on one of your crocheted eyes using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in place.  Once done, pull yarn to back side of face area before fastening off.  Repeat this process for the second eye.
You now should have one colored face area completely assembled with one extra long yarn tail for attaching this to the front of your beanie. If you see any others on the face area you may have missed during assembly, fasten them off now.   Taking the yarn tail left on  your face area, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to securely fasten it in desired location on front of your beanie hat.  I placed my own just above the last round of dc worked in my own beanie hat but feel free to play around with the placement before attaching your own.   Once you have is secured, pull yarn to inside of beanie hat and fasten off.
Next up is our hat ear assembly.  If you chose to skip the optional step of hat ear base, skip to next paragraph instead.   Taking the white yarn tail left on one hat ear sew around the opening and through lined up ear hat base so that it will cover up your opening with the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle you are using.  Make sure you stop between 2/3 to 3/4 of the way around to stuff small amount of fiberfill stuffing in to the hat ear piece before closing up all the way.  Once closed up, use the remaining yarn tail with your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to attach the assembled hat ear on top of your beanie hat on one top side.  Once securely in place, pull yarn to inside of hat and fasten off.  I like to reinforce large features with a few extra stitches or knots on the inside before fastening off but this isn’t necessary.  Now repeat the process above for the second hat ear.
If you chose to skip the hat ear base, these are your instructions for ear assembly. Take the white yarn tail left on one hat ear and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it securely in desired location on your beanie hat. You want to make sure that you stop between 2/3 to 3/4 of the way around to stuff small amount of fiberfill stuffing in to the hat ear piece before sewing it completely closed flush on the hat. Once closed up, use the remaining yarn tail with your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to attach the assembled hat ear on top of your beanie hat on one top side.  Once securely in place, pull yarn to inside of hat and fasten off.  I like to reinforce large features with a few extra stitches or knots on the inside before fastening off but this isn’t necessary.  Now repeat the process above for the second hat ear.
Tip:  When stuffing the hat ear pieces, just stuff enough to maintain the desired shape of your hat ears so they will stay upright. If you over stuff them it will bubble the bottom and scrunch up surrounding area while wearing it.  It can also cause drooping due to weight.
Now take a few moments to double check over your work for any loose ends or tails you may not of fastened off during assembly of your Finn hat.  If you find any, go ahead and fasten off. All done! One super duper cool Adventure Time Finn character hat. :)
I just know my nephew is going to go crazy over his when I give it to him. I sent a picture to my brother and he said he might steal it to “rock it”. hehe

Adventure Time's Jake the Dog Character Hat Crochet Pattern (2)

This character hat is my crochet interpretation of the character Jake the orange dog from the popular cartoon series Adventure Time. My nephew is a really big fan so I decided to make a crocheted Jake character hat for him.  I have to admit I had never crocheted a curved tube before and it almost drove me nuts before I figured it out but once I did it was pretty smooth sailing.  My only annoyance was that and then trying to sew the snout wrinkle tube on to the hat. I may have overstuffed it just a wee bit.  The is definitely advanced beginner and up.  If you make Amigurumi stuffed animals you will probably find it a lot easier than I did.

Have you not heard of Jake or Adventure Time yet?  I guess that’s possible. 😉  If you haven’t and want to learn more, please check out information here.

Finishing off:
Starting with your snout / mouth pieces, take the tail left on Jake’s black nose and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in desired place on front of the assembled snout wrinkle curved tube.  I made mine so the bottom was hanging a little bit off the tube to look more like the character but feel free to secure the whole thing if you desire.  Once secured in place, pull yarn to back of snout wrinkle piece and fasten off.
Now taking the main color golden yellow yarn tail left on your nose base, stitch it in place on to the back of your nose wrinkle piece.  This will support your nose tube, give you an anchor to attach it to hat in next step and provide the mouth / lip line as seen in pictures.  Once secure do not fasten off.  Keep remaining tail and Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to move on to next step.
Taking the remaining tail from above step and needle, sew your assembled nose/snout/mouth area for Jake on to the beanie hat.  I put mine near the bottom lining up the tube to just above the last round on hat but you can move it up higher or even lower to have hanging piece in front.  It’s your call.  Once it is sewn completely in place, pull your yarn in to the inside of the beanie hat before fastening off.
Next take the tail from one eye white and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it on top of one eye color back (black).  I did mine slightly down and to the inside instead of centering it on the black piece so it looked more like the character in images. You can see image near top of blog or reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.  Once secure, pull yarn to back of the eye color back before fastening off. Repeat process for second eye white.
Now taking the black yarn tail left on one assembled eye, use your  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in place directly on to your Jake beanie hat. I placed mine on each side near the top of the snout piece but you can play around with it and your spacing on your hat. Check out my pictures to see where I placed mine.   Once his eye is attached, pull yarn to inside of beanie and fasten off. Repeat process for second assembled eye.
Next take the tail from one assembled ear and your needle to attach the ear on side of beanie hat.  To be more like the illustrations of Jake the dog, I placed mine just above half way down my hat.  You can see my placement in pictures but feel free to play around with your placement.  I often use safety pins to see how it will look before I attach them.  Once you have stitched on the ear, pull yarn to inside and fasten off. Repeat process for the second ear.
Now just double check your work for any loose ends or extra yarn tails you may have missed during hat assembly. If you find any, go ahead and fasten them off now.
All done. :)  Your Adventure Time Jake the dog character hat is ready to wear or give to a fellow fan. <3  As always if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Happy crafting!
