Free Minecraft Creeper Knitting Chart

I’ve been playing a lot of Minecraft. So have my kids, their friends, and my friends’ kids. It’s a really popular game. I made these creeper hats for my friend’s kids for Christmas. These are 84 stitch versions of Cynthia Miller’s Basic Knit hat. It’s a free download on Ravelry.

I posted the chart on my project page on Ravelry, but I thought I’d offer it here, and put it on its own pattern page on Rav as well! It’ll work with anything (hat, mitts/wristers, sweater, socks) that has multiples of 7 stitches across. Carry strands loosely behind and don’t bother crossing them. It’s only 2 colours and nothing carries more than 5 stitches so it’s nice and tidy.

  1. Wanted to thank you for sharing your pattern. I have 4 boys, and they're pretty hard to impress with my knitted projects--and believe me, I try! LOL! I knitted this hat for my son Lars, who is 12, and I got the BEST response I've ever received from any of the boys--he's so very excited about his very nifty hat. Honestly, when he first asked me to make a "Creeper Hat", I had no clue as to what he meant, but I'm so glad I found your pattern! Thanks SO MUCH!!!

    1. R1: *K10, K2tog*
      R2 and all even rows: K around
      R3: *K9, K2tog*
      R5: *k8, K2tog*
      .. continue like so, knitting one fewer at before the decrease each decreasing round until the *k3, K2tog* row. Omit the knit rows and make just the decreasing rows until 7 STS remain.
      Cut yarn, thread it onto a yarn or darning needle and run it through the remaining 7 sts. Weave in your ends.

  10. Hi, I'm being dumb! Where is the actual pattern? Is it just the block image above with the rows or is there an actual knitting hat pattern?

    1. This is the colour chart only. You can apply this chart to any hat pattern with a stitch count divisible by 7.
