Pattern Notes: This pattern can be adjusted to be used with any materials you have. You can use any beanie pattern you prefer for this creation. I use my seamless beanie pattern because it is quick & simple. This hat fits standard adult size.
I plan to create lots more cartoon character beanies! Who’s your favorite ninja turtle?

**UPDATE: Child’s Size!
I recently created a ninja turtle beanie for my nephew who is 5 yrs old. I used the exact same pattern for this beanie except for I used a Size G/US 6 (4.0 mm) hook.
Video Tutorial for the child’s size pattern can be found below. This tutorial is much slower and in-depth than my first as well so if you are having trouble check it out!
