Adventure Time’s Jake the Dog Character Hat Free Crochet Pattern long

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.

Leave a long enough of a yarn tail to attach to hat before cutting yarn and pulling yarn through. Put to side until needed.

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!

Hello Kitty Character Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern (2)

Finishing off:
Starting from the bottom up, use the tail left on your nose and Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew your nose in desired place long lengthwise, with each hdc and dc end of oval facing left /right.  Once secured, pull yarn to inside of hat before finishing off.
Next you want to use the tail from one eye and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew one eye in to the proper place. You can reference my pictures as to where I placed them.  You want these to have the long side facing up/down on your oval shaped eyes.  Once sewn on, pull yarn to inside of hat and finish off.  Repeat this process for second eye.
Now using the tail left behind on one of Hello Kitty’s ears, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure the ear to the side top area of the beanie in desired location. You can see my pictures for where I placed my own.  Once you have it in place, pull your yarn in to the inside of the beanie before finishing off extra length. Repeat this process for the second ear.
Next take the tail left on your bow center and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure it in place on top of your bow main piece. Once firmly attached, use remaining tail and needle to sew your assembled bow directly on to your beanie hat in desired place. Normally you find it placed with the hat facing you in the top right just in front of ear in Hello Kitty images. Once you have secured your bow in place, pull yarn to inside and fasten off.
Now check over your crochet project for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.
All done! One Hello Kitty character hat crocheted and ready to wear! :)
This was a fun and quick hat project that I can’t wait to wear myself. It will make a great gift for Hello Kitty fans or for sweet crocheted baby hats. Happy crafting!

*Note: My beret insert Row 1 gave a flippy look when finished with the lip of the beret sticking out a bit. If you don’t like this look you can make Row 1 just another round of 1 sc each around in front loops only so it will lay more flat. Another option is to just create the beret as a separate piece as above instructions call for and just do one insert row of 1 sc around instead of above before sewing your beret on top of completed beanie.
Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to move on to creating the rest of your Purin hat.

Ch 9. Make a sl st in 2nd ch from and next ch. Ch 6.
Leave a long enough tail to be able to sew the mouth lines in place on your Purin hat during assembly before you cut yarn, pull through. 

Finishing off:
Starting with the nose, take the yarn tail from your nose and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew Purin’s nose in desired location on hat. I made my own just a little under halfway mark of rounds down in cream color, not counting the beret rounds in number but feel free to play around with your own but make sure you will have enough room to add your mouth lines. Once you have secured the nose fully in place, pull yarn to the inside of the beret and fastening off.
Now taking tail left at end of the mouth lines, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the mouth lines in shape of your preference I did the curly “W” shape I found in many of Purin’s pictures (You can see this in my pictures and Purin image near top of pattern for reference). Once you have his mouth secured in place, pull yarn to inside of the beanie and fasten off.
Next up take the tail from one of his eyes and using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle sew the eye to one side of the face area of your beanie. Again once secure, pull yarn to inside of beret before fastening off yarn. Repeat for second eye.
All that is left now is attaching Purin’s assembled ears from pattern instructions above. Using your  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and the tail left on one ear, sew it in desired place on side of beanie a little under the beret. You want to attach it by the / side of the top of the ear created by the st decrease of last few rows attaching it in a vertical manner. This is help your ears keep front facing ear appearance instead of hanging or floppy ears. Once you have the ears sewn in place, pull yarn to inside of hat. I like to reinforce the joining of large features, like ears, with a few more stitches on inside but it’s not necessary. Once done, fasten off. Repeat for the second ear.
Now just take the time to check over your work to see if there are any yarn tails or loose ends you may have missed before.  If you find any, go ahead and fasten them off now.
All done :) One super chibi cute golden retriever puppy named Purin hat ready to wear.

Here are some pictures to show how this Purin character hat looks like when worn from different angles once completed:

Before you cut your yarn, leave a long tail. You are going to use this tail to stitch the antenna into a circular tube which will just be wide enough for a pipe cleaner or two to slip inside to help you hold your form.
You may choose to not use a pipe cleaner and add a little coated wire or stuffing. One way to get the curve of the antenna without using pipe cleaner or wire is to skip a st inbetween sewing together the area you want to curve and pull yarn tight before going to next one. :)

ilomilo's Ilo and Milo Character Hats Crochet Pattern (25)

Finishing off:
Taking the tail on one eye and your yarn needle sew the first eye to bottom right of face area. You can see my pictures on where I placed them on my hats.  Once attached, pull yarn to back of face area and fasten off.
Taking the tail on the second eye and your yarn needle attach it to the bottom left of face area. Again once attached in place, pull yarn to back of face area and fasten off.
Now using the leftover yarn tail on the face area and yarn needle secure the face area directly on to the front of the beanie hat in desired location.  Once securely in place, pull yarn to inside of beanie hat before fastening off.
Using tail on your antenna and your needle, stitch your antennae closed at end you are starting with that has tail at before stitching down your piece forming it in a circular tube around the pipe cleaner (again this is optional but I do recommend it as it helps keep it in an upright curved position). I just did a simple back and forth stitch as my sewing skills are less than stellar. Once you have the tube closed and reached the bottom end, move on to next step.
Using tail left on your antenna from previous step and needle, secure it in place on the top of your beanie hat. Once you have it sewn in your desired place, I centered mine on the first round on hat base, pull yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off.
Now just check for any loose ends or tails you may have missed during assembly and if you find any, do so now.
All done!

Row 2: Place 2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in each of the next 8 st, and 2 hdc in last st in row. Ch 2 and turn. (12 hdc)
Row 3: Place 2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in each of the next 10 st, and 2 hdc in last st in row. Ch 1 and turn. (14 hdc)
Row 4: Work 1 sc in each st across until corner, place *(1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc)* into the corner, proceed around side working counterclockwise working 1 sc in each st and * in each corner until you have reached 1st corner from Row. Sc into corner, ch 1 and sl st in the top of 1st st in round.
Make sure you leave an extra long tail to sew assembled mouth area on to the hat when ready for that step in finishing, before cutting yarn and pulling through. Set to the side until needed to assemble.

*This feature above will work well on toddler to adult male sized hats.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, do following steps instead of above or switch to a G or H hook instead for above:
Row 1:  Ch 9 before placing 1 hdc in 3rd ch from hook and 1 hdc in each of the following 6 ch. Ch 2 and turn. (7 hdc)
Row 2: Place 2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in each of the next 5 st, and 2 hdc in last st in row. Ch 1 and turn. (9 hdc)
Row 3: Work 1 sc in each st across until corner, place *(1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc)* into the corner, proceed around side working counterclockwise working 1 sc in each st and * in each corner until you have reached 1st corner from Row. Sc into corner, ch 1 and sl st in the top of 1st st in round.
Make sure you leave an extra long tail to sew assembled mouth area on to the hat when ready for that step in finishing, before cutting yarn and pulling through. Set to the side until needed to assemble.

Gum areas of mouth (Make 2): using pink yarn
Row 1: Ch 7. Place 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and 1 sc in each of the next 5 ch. Ch 1 and turn. (6 sc)
Row 2: Make 1 sc in 2nd st in row skipping the 1st st, place 1 hdc in next 2 st, and sctog the last two st in row.
Leaving a long enough yarn tail to be able to sew on to mouth area when ready for assembly, cut yarn and pull through. Set to side for now. Repeat process for second gum area.

*This feature above will work well on toddler to adult male sized hats. For newborn to 12 month sized hats, switch to a G or H sized hook or do following steps instead:
Row 1: Ch 4. Place 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and 1 sc in each of the next  2 ch. Ch 1 and turn. (3 sc)
Row 2: Sctog first 2 st in row and sl st in to the last st.
Leaving a long enough yarn tail to be able to sew on to mouth area when ready for assembly, cut yarn and pull through. Set to side for now. Repeat process for second gum area.

Mouth Assembly:
Taking the tail from one gum area and using your yarn needle, sew one of the pink gum areas in to the top left (when facing you) starting with end in corner and along top with curved area facing down. Once secure, pull yarn through to the back before fastening off.
Taking the tail from second pink gum area and needle, sew this part of the gums to the bottom right area of mouth. You will place one end in corner and sew along the bottom. (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own) Once secure, like before, pull yarn through to the back before fastening off.
Next we are going to do the teeth. I will give them to you in a clockwise circle starting with the top left corner.
For the first tooth, take the tail from your Extra Large Tooth, sew in to the top of the mouth on top and in the center of the upper pink gum area. Once secure pull yarn to back of mouth before fastening off.
For the second tooth, you will use one the Small Sized Teeth, attaching it to the center of the upper mouth area. Once secure pull yarn to back and fasten off.
For the third tooth, you will use one of the Medium Sized Teeth, sewing it in place in the upper right corner, about 2 stitches out from corner. Again sewing securely on before pulling to back and fastening off.
For the fourth tooth, you will use the tail left on second of the Medium Sized Teeth and yarn needle to secure this tooth in the bottom left corner, directly in corner touching left side of mouth. Once attached, pull yarn to back of mouth and fasten off.
For the fifth tooth, you will use the yarn left on the second of the Small Sized Teeth and attach it to the center of the bottom pink gum area on top of it so it looks like your tooth is sticking out of thickest part of gum. Once that is done, pull through and fasten off yarn in back of mouth area.

Finishing off:
I like to start with the bottom when making hats with features so I have plenty of room to work instead of squished up space if I judge wrong when starting at the top. It’s easier that way as you can always move next features up etc.
Now you should have a fully assembled mouth area with one long black mouth tail left. Using your yarn needle and the tail left on your mouth, attach it to your beanie near the center bottom of the front of your beanie. I just centered mine just above the last dc round on my hat. You can reference my pictures to see how I placed mine if you aren’t sure. Once the mouth area is secured in place on your beanie, pull the yarn tail to the inside of the beanie hat before fastening off.
Taking the tail of your larger nostril and yarn needle, sew your larger nostril in place just to the right of the center of the mouth. Pull yarn to back when secure and fasten off.
Now take the tail of the smaller nostril and use your needle to secure it in place just to the left of the center of the mouth area. I lined my nostrils up so they are slightly angled in and the bottoms of each both started at same st line so this one was shorter on top.
Next to assemble the eyes, take one pupil tail and sew in place on eye white in desired location. I wanted mine to look more like character so I didn’t center them or point them in same direction. You can see my pictures of my completed hat or zombie picture from Plants Vs. Zombie’s game art. Now repeat to attach pupil to the second eye.
Now that your eyes are assembled, take the white yarn tail from the larger eye and yarn needle to sew it in place on the right side of face, the same side as your larger nostril. Once you have secured it completely in place, pull your yarn to the inside of the hat before fastening it off.
Now repeat this process with the smaller eye but sew it in place on the left side of the face, the same side as your smaller nostril. One you have sewn it in place, pull yarn to inside of hat and fasten off.
Check over your hat to make sure there aren’t any loose ends or tails you have not woven in and fastened off in your assembly. Do so now if you find any. All done!

Here are some pictures to show how the completed Plants vs. Zombies Zombie Character hat looks like worn from different angles once you are all done:

You can reference the picture above to see how I placed my own. It’s kind of a curly “w” shape.

Next you want to use the tail from one blue eye and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew one eye in to the proper place. You can reference my pictures as to where I placed them on my own Cinnamoroll hat. Once sewn on, pull yarn to inside of hat and finish off.  Repeat this process for the second eye.
Using the tail left behind on one of the floppy puppy ears, use yourBlunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure the ear to the side top area of the beanie in desired location with the contrast on hat. You can see my pictures for where I placed my own. If you want longer hanging ears place it lower on the hat or higher placement for shorter length of ears hanging down. Once you have it in place, pull your yarn in to the inside of the beanie before finishing off extra length.  Repeat this process for the second ear.
Now check over your crochet project for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.

Captain America Superhero Shield Logo Inspired Beanie Hat Free Crochet Pattern

 

Who is Captain America?  If you are a superhero fan or have one in your life then you more than likely know something about good old Captain.  He has been around since the early 1940’s thanks to Marvel comics.  You can learn more about him here. I decided to add his shield logo as an over-sized applique to a hat when designing this hat in the superhero hat collection I designed for my nephews. I like how it turned out so here is the pattern if you want to make it as well.  I would say this project is for advanced beginners and up do to color changes and star shape but it is definitely doable even for a first time hat maker. Enjoy!

No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size you want for your project.

Once you have completed your beanie for the red hat base you are ready to start customizing your own Flash Superhero logo hat for the superhero fan in your life. :)

White Logo Circle: using white yarn

Round 3: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in 1st st, *1 dc in next st, 2 dc in following st* repeat * all around. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (30 dc)
Cut yarn leaving a long tail in order to sew your eye on to the beanie during assembly process. Pull yarn through and put to side until needed.
This size of logo circle will work for toddler to adult male size hats. For newborn to 12 month sizes, switch all dc in white logo circle to hdc instead.

Lightning / Thunderbolt: using yellow / gold yarn
Row 1: Ch 5. Place 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 3 ch. Ch 1 and turn. (4 sc)
Row 2:  1 sc in 1st st and following 3 st across. Ch 3 and turn. (4 sc)

*This size lightning / thunderbolt will work from sizes toddler to adult male. For newborn to 12 month sizes, start with a ch of 4 instead of 5, working 3 sc in each row instead of 4 sc plus eliminate Rows 6 and 7.

The Flash Superhero Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern

Finishing off:
Before attaching anything to the hat directly we are going to put together the logo in one piece so that when we fasten off any undesirable ends are hidden between logo circle and beanie. :)
Taking the tail left on the thunderbolt center it on your white logo circle then use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure it in place.  Once secure pull the yarn through to the back before fastening off.  (You can reference the logo picture and pictures of my own completed hat to see where I placed mine.)
Now using the tail left on the assembled logo from step before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle , sew the piece onto the desired location on the front of the hat.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.)
Check for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any. Then you are all done.

Here are some pictures to show how the Flash Superhero beanie hat looks worn from different directions once completed:

Mario and Luigi Beanie Hats Free Crochet Pattern

 

Growing up as a kid in the 80’s (shhh don’t tell anyone how old this geek is getting) I fell in love with the Mario brothers on first sight. I probably spent several hundred hours playing their games as they came out.  It was always a favorite of mine so I thought I would make these Mario and Luigi inspired beanies for my nephews to wear and went on to make a Yoshi hat that I will add to my blog soon for the third nephew to wear to be a part of the fun. :)  These are super easy for beginners to make and a fun but quick project. Go for it!

Taking white yarn, attach to the beanie where you left off in last round of hat pattern with a sl st.  Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each of the following st around. Sl st to the top of the 1st st in round before fastening off.

White Logo Circle (same for both Mario and Luigi hats): using white yarn

Round 2:  Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and 3 dc in the next 9 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 1 before placing *2 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in following st*  repeat the pattern of * around through last st.  Sl st to the top of the 1st st in round. (30 sc)
Cut yarn leaving a long tail in order to sew your eye on to the beanie during assembly process. Pull yarn through and put to side until needed.
*For toddler sized hats, switch round 2 to hdc instead of dc.
*For newborn to 12 month sized hats, switch rounds 1 and 2 to hdc instead of dc.

Mario “M” letter for logo: using red yarn
Make a ch of 24 . Leave a long enough yarn tail to be able to sew this chain on to your logo circle in the shape of the letter “M” during finishing off stage, before cutting yarn and pulling through stitch.
*For toddler sized hats, make a chain of 20 instead of 24.
*For newborn to 12 month sized hats, make a chain of 16 instead of 24.

Luigi “L” letter for logo: using green yarn
Make a ch of 12.  Leave a long enough tail pf yarn to be able to sew this chain on to your logo circle in the shape of the letter “L” before cutting yarn and pulling through stitch.

Finishing off:
Mario Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Closeup View of Details
For Mario Hat:
Using the red yarn tail left on the ch for your letter “M” from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle , sew the piece onto the desired place in the front center of your logo circle in to the shape of the letter “M”.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.) Once secure, pull yarn to the back of your logo circle before fastening off. Skip down to instructions for both hats.

Luigi Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Closeup on Details

For Luigi Hat:
Using the red yarn tail left on the ch for your letter “M” from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle , sew the piece onto the desired place in the front center of your logo circle in to the shape of the letter “M”.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.) Once secure, pull yarn to the back of your logo circle before fastening off. Now work on following pattern directions for both hats.

For Both hats:
Take the tail from your assembled logo in previous steps and your yarn needle to sew the logo on the front of your beanie hat in desired location. You can see where I placed the ones for my hats in the pictures for this post.  I find that leaving one or two of the last rounds of dc in your hat base below the bottom of the logo gives it a nice distance to show off the contrast trim and not be so high up that you can’t see it when looking at it worn straight on. Once you have the logo sew securely in place, pull your yarn to the inside of the beanie behind the logo before fastening off.
Now check for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any. You should be all done now!
