Mario and Luigi Beanie Hats 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!

Mario and Luigi Beanie Hats Crochet Pattern

Mario and Luigi Beanie Hats Crochet Pattern Notes

 

Project requires:
Red Yarn for Beanie Hat (Mario main color)-  (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will do)
Green Yarn for Beanie Hat (Luigi main color)
White Yarn for Logo Circle
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern:
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet 
hdc – half double crochet (for smaller sizes only)

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.

Mario Hat Base: using red yarn for main color and white yarn for contrast trim
Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice
Once you have completed your beanie for the red hat base you are ready to start your Mario hat.
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.

Luigi Hat Base: using green yarn for main color and white yarn for contrast trim
Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice
Once you have completed your beanie for the green hat base you are ready to start your Luigi hat.
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 1:  Ch 2 (does not count as a st throughout pattern) before placing 10 dc in a magic circle. Pull circle tight before sl st in top of beginning st.  (10 dc)
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.
For toddler sized hats, make a ch of 10 instead of 12.
For newborn to 12 month sized hats, make a ch of 8 instead of 12.

Finishing off:

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.

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!
