I can't believe someone hasn't thought of this one yet! Last night on ravelry (I have the same username there) I was looking at all the nerdy projects that people have done, and I got inspired by seeing the triforce on everything from hats to sweaters when I thought it up, why not make it a hair clip as well...

The pattern is actually pretty simple, make three small triangles, sew them together, and attatch it to a bobbie pin or hair clip (or saftey pin for a broach) This took me about 30 or so mintues all together. This project is pretty much instant gaming gratification.

I made my triangle with a 3.50 hook and yellow cotton yarn I had laying around, but I'm sure it would look great with aran yarn. This is probably the first pattern I've ever written (well maybe not "written", I'll say submitted.)

I made mine like this:

-ch 6, sc in 2nd ch and across

-sc2tog at beginning and sc across *do this part on each row until there is only one stitch left, then cut it off *

-Leave a long tail on one of the triangles so you can use it to sew up the triangles in their places.

- sew the corners of the triangles together to get the triforce shape.

-attach clip, pin, or whatever

- enjoy!

I'll totally have to take a picture of me holding it up like Link, lol.
If anybody wants to make this, please feel free to post yours on this thread!

HAH! I am so glad that I am no longer the only person to use "Da-da-da-daaah~!" in a craftster post.  Cheesy And the Zelda get-item fanfare is so appropriate for this project, because you wear it above your head... haha, get it? You don't have to hold it up, it's already above your head...

...ooh, so lame.  BUT! This is a lovely hairclip, and thanks for the pattern!
