Chibi Ninja Hat Crochet Pattern Notes

Chibi Ninja Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern

Project requires:
Yarn for main color (I used black in picture)-  (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will do)
Contrast color of your choice for Ninja’s face/skin tone ( I used a light tan color)
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern (US crochet stitches):
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet (US) 

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 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 you want for your project.

Hat Base:

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice

One you fasten off your beanie hat, you are ready to start working on your Chibi Ninja face! :)

Chibi Ninja face area:
Round 1:  Starting with a foundation chain of 19 ch,  make 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each of the following 16 ch and 2 sc in last st of chain. Turning so you are working on back side of foundation chain to create more of  a circle, work 2 sc in first ch, sc in each  of the 16 ch working back to beginning in circular fashion until last st, place 2 sc in last st.  Sl st to top of first st.
Round 2-4: Continue working in rounds similar to above with 1 sc in each st but 2 sc in each of the four corners around your face to start  forming the rectangle shape . Sl st into first st to complete each round. Continue until you are the final size you want. For my Chibi Ninja in picture for this crochet pattern I made 4 rounds total.Pull yarn through leaving enough tail to sew on face to secure to doll later when cutting. Put Ninja face area to side until needed.

Ninja eyes:
Using black yarn and leaving a bit of a tail for sewing eye in place when done, chain 8. Dc in third ch from hook and each of following 5 ch. (6 dc)
Pull yarn through and cut yarn. Using large blunt eye needle, sew eye into position you want it to be in. I sometimes pin my in place to make sure I have them even or it drives me nuts.  Finish off yarn from eyes behind face.

Finishing off hat:
Now that your Ninja’s face and your hat base is complete, use the yarn tail from your face area to secure it into the finished place with the large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle.  I find that if I use the pins to hold it in place I can keep it even and not crooked instead of moving about.  Apparently without them my sewing skills are close to none…   Once you’ve sewn it into place, Finish off yarn behind face.
There you go. Your own Chibi Ninja beanie crocheted hat! :)  It’ s a really fun but quick project.  You can choose to put the eyes in all kinds of positions like:   \ / or / \ or _ _  or even > < with small v’s instead of eye strip used above.

This is a good time to put the legs on before closing two rounds. By placing them facing forward and more to sides it allows the doll to sit up when not being cuddled.  Make sure you fill up the Ninja Doll to the size, squeezability you desire with your fiberfill stuffing. I prefer mine not to hard stuffed but strong enough to hold shape and some weight to them.
Round 26: Ch 1, sctog first two st, sctog next two st continuing sctog around. Sl st to top of first st. (6 sc)
27: Ch 1, sctog first two st, sctog next two st continuing sctog around. (3 sc)

Easy Baby Bib with Contrast Trim Crochet Pattern

Easy Baby Bib with Contrast Trim Crochet Pattern

free crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com

This free crochet pattern is for an easy baby bib that even advanced beginners can make!  I was struggling to find out what to make for all the new little ones in my family for this past Christmas holiday when I stumbled across a cute cupcake bib made of fabric and thought it might turn out cute in crochet. You can never go wrong with cupcakes. 😉  I’m so glad I did. I ended up making sixteen bibs for gifts. Yes sixteen but they whipped up so fast I was surprised, so here is what I did to make them.   There are links for applique patterns I used from other places for the cupcake, car and snowman at end of pattern if you want to try them too.

Easy Peasy Youth Sized (Age 3-10) Free Double Crochet Beanie Hat Base Pattern (Based on standard US sizing, this pattern is made to fit most three to ten year old children)

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic circle ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 (does not count as a dc throughout pattern as I use this to make a more seamless appearance in my hats) before placing 12 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed. Join with sl st in the top of beginning st. (12 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before making 2 dc in 1st st and 2 dc in each of the following 11 st around. Join with sl st to top of 1st st. (24 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before making *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next st.* Repeating * pattern for next 22 st around. Join with sl st to top of 1 st st. (36 dc)
Round 4: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next 2 st. Repeating * pattern for next 33 st around.  Join with sl st to top of 1st st. (48 dc)
Round 5 -11: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in each of the remaining 47 st around. Join with sl st to top of 1st st. (48 dc)
Round 12: Ch 1 before making 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each of the remaining 47 st around. Join with sl st to top of 1st st. (48 sc)

Cut yarn leaving a short tail to finish off the project. Pull tail through and weave in ends with your large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle before cutting off any extra length left behind to fasten off hat.

All done!

Want a trim or contrast color?You can easily add a contrast trim by adding an additional round of sc to end of hat in new yarn color or for a wider trim, subtract one dc round from Round 5-11 then add that to the end after in between sc rows in contrast color.
