I love Legos, but often feel I’m to old to play with them. The next best thing is making Lego creations out of yarn.
This is a pretty easy knit pattern. I hate working in the round unless I use double pointed needles and that can be tedious. It’s made in one piece and seamed in the back. The decorations/face are made in crochet and then sewn on.
Happy Knitting and as always contact me if you have questions.

This is adorable. I will have to try making one!
I would love to see any pictures of any completed projects.
It may be awhile as I have several knitting projects I have to do but I will definitely post a picture if I make one.
you should adapt for bigger babys i have a 1 year old and a 3 year old would love one for either!
Its in my list of things to do, I just haven’t gotten to it yet. I think it would be really cute on a bigger kid.
How about adult size please?
I need to do sizing on all my hats to go up to adult. I hopefully will be able to do that in the next year.
Thank you! I know it’s cheeky but please could you email me when you’re ready?? 🙂
I will as soon as I do. It might be awhile. Shoot me an email at email@example.com so I can tell you.
