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 . . .)


  1. thank you for the pattern. love the idea of the katniss hat ! great story to choose a pattern to create. hey we are ALL allowed a stay in bed til noon experience...miss those days.

    1. You're welcome. :P The Hunger Games is one of my favourite books so a lot of times, instead of pulling something from thin air I take inspiration from the story (and the movie because the stylistic choices were absolutely brilliant). Haha, thanks but I think it would be more acceptable if I didn't have several of those stay-in-bed days in a row. I'm taking advantage of the opportunity while it lasts. :D

  2. Thanks for the pattern! I added a pompom on top to make it into more of a wintery hat; it turned out very cute! :)


Little Mermaid Costume - Updated

It's finally here. An updated version of my little mermaid costume (with proper math this time). Unfortunately, no adorable baby...
