Crochet Spyro (Skylanders) Adult Sized Hat


For this hat I decided to do my own version of Spyro from Skylanders.  Since I do not own any rights to the likeness of Spyro I am sharing the pattern here for free.  It took me some time to come up with this, so I only ask if you plan on selling this or making your own that you kindly link to this pattern here so I can have some credit :)  This will be my first time sharing a pattern I made, so if anything is confusing, feel free to ask or help correct my pattern! Thanks, Natasha (mnopxs2).



I will have a Youtube tutorial up sometime shortly for this whole pattern as well!

    2. Hey Natasha! I have made both hats and the patterns were very easy to follow and I found no errors! Also, if you ever need a tester for your patterns, I'd be happy to help you out. Also, I will be recording a Cast off Crew video tomorrow and will be showing the beanies. Thanks again for the patterns! Will you be releasing the Blue Tang beanie?

    3. I can't wait for your video!!! I have tomorrow off of work, so that will be fabulous! I may take you up on that offer for help fixing my Singe Pattern so that one day I can share it! I haven't even written down the pattern for the Blue Tang, but maybe I should get that done and have you test that also! Thanks for the support and look forward to your wonderful video!
