Free pattern: the innocent big knit Pacman ghost hats

Eingestellt von nanaliciouz um 05:39 3 Kommentare

Earlier this year I spotted the super delicious innocent smoothies in our supermarket and I bought one bottle of each flavor. We rarely have fruits at home because of the disgusting fruit flies. These smoothies are the best solution. They last longer than fresh fruits plus thereby I avoid fruit flies in my kitchen. ^_^ v
Since then they are my daily vitamin bombs. Mangoes & passionfruits and Strawberries & bananas are my favorites. They are so yummy and healthy!

But they are not only good for you, they also help charities. Maybe some of you already have heard about "The Big Knit", (German: "Das große Stricken"). It is a yearly campaign since three years which raised money to help the elderly stay warm and healthy over the cold winter months. For every behatted bottle of smoothie sold, innocent donate an amount of money to charities. In Germany the donation will go to the German Red Cross.

This is just a great cause - I absolutely must join! However, since I do not know how to knit, I crochet tiny little hats instead. These hats won't only help the elderly, but can also be used as egg cosies later! So grab your yarn and hook and make the world a little bit better!

Here is my free pattern for all the
hard-working helpers out there: 

  • yarn: pink for Pinky, red for Blinky, blue for Inky and orange for Clyde (I used Wolle Rödel Mille Fili Color-No. rosa 5910, rot 5902, pfefferminz 5918 and orange 5961)
  • 3.50 mm crochet hook
  • small amount of white and black felt
  • fabric glue
  • wool or tapestry needle
  • optional: stitch marker (you can use a bobby pin as a stitch marker, too!)
