The Andy Hat and Big Mac Mitts
Back in January I was flipping through the Sky Mall and saw a photo of my favorite android, Andy. I decided to make a hat that looked like Andy, so I give you the Andy hat!
Also around the same time I fell in love with Twinkie Chan's Burger mitts. Since I'm a huge fan of the Big Mac, this is my homage...I'm still trying to find the right color orange for the special sauce, but so far they're Two all beef patties, lettuce, cheese, pickles onions on a sesame seed bun!
I didn't make up a pattern for the mitts but here's my pattern for the hat.
The Andy Hat
Pattern notes. I made this using a K sized hook. I have a pretty large head and this hat was even a wee bit loose on me so if I were to make it again I might either move down to a J sized hook or skip the last set of increases and add an extra row (60 sts)...that might be a bit small for me personally though, so you just have to pay attention as you crochet. Also in order to make it more snug I really tightened my stitches on the last three or for rows.
R1-Ch 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook
R2-2 sc in each sc around (12 sts)
R3 2 sc in each around (24 sts)
R4- sc 1 in ea (24 sts)
R5-*Sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat 12 times (36 sts)
R6- sc 1 in ea (36 sts)
R7-*sc 2, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat 12 times (48 sts)
R8- sc 1 in ea (48 sts)
R9-*sc 3, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat 12 times (60 sts)
R10-sc 1 in ea (60 sts)
R11-*sc 4, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat 12 times (72 sts)
R12-20sc 1 in ea (72 sts)
R1-ch 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook
R2-5 sc 6, bind off leaving tail for sewing
Sew the antenna on and use two buttons for eyes, I chose white, but black might also have been nice...since Andy's eyes are basically holes that go all the way through, you'd want to pick whatever you'd think would be in the background :)
