Here we are, back to Zelda, again. My son absolutely loves the games. We recently bought him Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U. He just can’t seem to get enough of it. It has inspired me to revisit the Zelda items on my to do list. I began crocheting him a Toon Link tunic. I’m about 50% done. He has a list of requests a mile long. One at a time.
I’ve decided May will be focused mostly on completing my Zelda requests. I want to make some dolls, some gloves, maybe a new hat for him (maybe this time with pointed ears!). I want to make a few panels for my Legend of Zelda blanket. Don’t forget the placemats to go with the coasters.
Remember Deku Link? I gave him to my oldest son as an early birthday gift last time I saw him. He was so much fun to make. Very easy. The pattern was simple to follow and I vowed to make another one for my other son.
I also have some yardage of Zelda fabric. I may need to make something out of it. A pillow, another apron? Some hot pads would be ideal, but I need to make a trip to Michael’s before I make those. The Etsy shop I purchased it from still has it in stock. I may have to purchase more. She is located right here in Calgary so I can just pick it up and save on shipping!
Here’s a sneak peek of the tunic. It will be Toon Link, so the sleeves will be light green. It will wear more like a sweater, so I don’t know how much use he will get out of it this summer. I’m using Red Heart SS in Paddy Green. I was unsure if I would be able to find the color, since they didn’t have it at Michael’s. Lo and Behold! Walmart came to the rescue. I ended up buying Hunter Green from Michael’s anyway. It will come in handy with all this Zelda Madness!
My project this morning was testing a small graph using single crochet. My graph on the paper is 19×19. The result was a nice coaster sized image. The coaster is 20x20sc after the border (approx. 4″). I used a 4.0mm hook and Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Hunter Green and Yellow.
My result should have been three solid yellow triangles, but I opted for the outline look. I plan on trying more. The next Triforce will be filled in, though. I’m going to dig up some other graphs that are approximately the same size and see what I can create!
Thanks for visiting. Stay tuned as Zelda Madness takes off! Check back often for more fun!
