So this is the pattern for Fiona’s hair…it’s not much of a pattern and will probably be super hard to follow, but it doesn’t have to be perfect, it’s a cartoon after all!

With J hook and pale yellow yarn

Ch 9, turn and hdc in the 3rd ch from hook and the next 6, ch 6.

Turn and hdc in the 3rd ch from hook and the next 9 stitches. ch 2 and turn.

Hdc in the next 10 stitches and ch 14.

Turn and hdc in the 3rd ch  from hook and the next 21 stitches. Ch 2 and turn.

Hdc in the next 16, ch 2 and turn.

Hdc to the end of the row. FO.

Surface crochet, or sew, the hair on to the square, overlapping the face. Curl the long end a bit when you secure it so it flips out like in the picture. Weave in ends or hide them between the hair piece and the back of the square. And you’re done!

You could also use this for any other bangs you might need.  Thanks for all the views! Don’t forget to follow and comment!

For Fiona’s hair, I free formed it and didn’t write down the pattern so I will have to look at it and figure out what I did. I should have that up soon.

 

I hope you can read this!! I tried to translate it from my pattern scratch but I have the flu so I’m not at my best today, sorry. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me, I will be glad to help!

Also, this pattern is completely of my own creation (though I do not own the characters Finn or Fiona) and is for personal use only. I ask that you do not sell this pattern or the items you make from it. Thank you.

So this past 10 days I was able to meet some relatives of mine for the first time and I really enjoyed it. So much in fact that I had to whip up some early gifts for them while I was in their neck of the woods.

Socks for my Great Aunt, and a hat for my Great Uncle.
