Zelda Triforce Hat Free Pattern

Ok so I am a HUGE Geek! LOL My Husband is an even bigger one though ;) I made this hat for him. I am getting sick of modeling the hats so I might invest in a mannequin head *sigh* I was going to have my husband model it but he is at work and I couldn't wait ;D Instead I had my daughter wear it so I could get a picture of the top.


The cool thing is it looks all normal from the front but the top... hehe.


*****UPDATE*****
I finally got him to model YAY!

So awesome! I was just wondering what to make my brother for Christmas this year, and I saw your tutorial. The Zelda triforce symbol is tattooed on his arm. I think we have a winner!

Excellent design for Zelda-ites! I have an adult daughter who is obsessed with the everything Zelda & triforce, so I need to dust off my crochet hook or adapt it to my knitting looms. I really enjoy your creations.

I have to say you made an stupendous job. This hat is simply perfect and I know he must be so proud of you. I don't know why my sister don't spend her time doing something like this instead of buying Viagra without a prescription online.

Amber said...

I don't play Zelda but I'm making this for my bf who felt the need to inform me that the center of the triforce is black. Lol.

Helen Crosby said...

I made this hat for my son for his 24th birthday. He was a little concerned it would be geeky but actually loved it. Thankyou x

I want to make it a bit slouchier because my boyfriend doesn't really like fitted hats like this. What would you recommend? just adding more rows or what?

Catfewd27 said...

Ok, so I got it to be slouchier. I just switched to Double crochet instead and its turning out great actually!
