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.

Feel free to share this around. Enjoy!


  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!!!

  2. Super excited to make this for my #3 son! He is going to love it!

  3. Hi, i am going to knit these for my boys for christmas, and wondered if you could give me some help to modify this for a single logo on the hat as apposed to multiples. Thanks! I will be using the basic hat pattern for young boys size,

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your minecraft pattern! I made a hat for my grandson.
