Crochet Tutorial: Ninja Turtle Hat

One of my most popular videos has always been this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle beanie hat. It is a very easy to follow and very adaptable pattern. Seriously, if you know basic crochet, you can increase or decrease to make any size. I do have a written pattern for six different sizes though, if you wish to follow along. It is a paid pattern available on my Etsy Shop.
