Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen Inspired Girl On Fire Beanie

Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen inspired Girl On Fire Beanie

(also, I apologize in advance for the horrific pictures of me; it was a stay-in-bed-until-noon kind of day) 


Inspired by Cinna’s many designs (I hope he’d be impressed)

6.00 and 5.50 hooks
Sensations Angel Hair yarn (I think the colour is called Berry?)
                This is more of a colour/yarn-specific pattern, so I highly recommend using the exact yarn

Using 6.00mm hook
Magic circle
1: ch 3, dc 11 in circle (12)
2: 2 dc in each st around (24)
3: *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* around
4: *dc in next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st* around
5: *dc in next 4 sts, 2 dc in next st* around (you’ll find that there won’t be enough stitches for the last few sts, so dc in next 2 sts, then 2 dc in next st)
6 -10: dc around
Switch to 5.50mm hook
11-14: *fphdc in next st, bphdc in next st* around
                To fasten off, skip a st and then slst

And there you have it!

(Not gonna lie, I’m really tempted to use it for part of a Katniss/Peeta Victory Tour cosplay and take pictures, except for the obvious fact that I’d need a Peeta . . .)
