So, I mostly make Amigurumi. Then one day I'm like, wait, if ami's are round....and hats are round....I CAN MAKE HATS. *mind blown*

So I did, lol. Before that though, I came up with a plan for the types of things I wanted to make. I knew it had to be video game related, of course. Problem is, I also wanted my hats/etc. to be really wearable, and not super costume-y so I could use them everyday. And I then decided that the patterns had to be customizable, so they could be turned into non-gaming accessories with a few color changes, or by altering a few lines of the pattern, so that way I would get bang-for-my-buck so to speak. This lead me to making a Legend of Zelda hat to start, since I thought it would be a good beginner project and a lot of people seem to have made them before so why couldn't I?


For it I used an olive yarn instead of a sharp green yarn since I thought it would make for a cool hat in general, not just a cool zelda hat. Plus it looks better on brown hair to me (which I have). Still keeping it with the theme, just in a fashionable way lol. Also it's kinda slouchy. I then took this pattern and used it make a normal purple slouch hat.


For some reason I don't like too much slouch, so it's not super baggy. Also, on both hats I made up this stitch thingy. Is this technically a motif or something else? Here's a pic...



It's that shape above the band. It kinda looked like a temple to me when I made it, like the fpdc's are the columns and the shell at the top is a dome, so I'm calling it my "temple stitch." Has anybody else made up something like this before? If not maybe I should creative commons license it lol!!! I doubt it though, I'm not original at all  Roll Eyes

I also made some LoZ gloves that match the hat and have a triforce on the left hand (just like link does), and some earwarmers designed after Aigis, a robot character from Persona 3.



Thanks for looking!!! Cheesy

Great that you are venturing into crochet clothes. Once you get started there will be no stopping you. And dresses and tops can be worked in the round too.  I like your little motif.  You could have it as a signature motif on whatever you make - then everyone would know it was something you had done.

Wow..sorry I didn't see this sooner.  I love the idea of the "signature motif."  Great work on these accessories! The Zelda hat is my favorite.
