I've been wanting to share an add on alternative for my Turtle Pattern for a long time.
( I know many of you already have the pattern but if you don't you can purchase it in my Ravelry shop) 

I've had so many people ask to make it a Ninja Turtle. 

A Special thanks to Jennifer Neerhof for the idea & pattern for the wristlets and this awesome picture of the ones she made. You can check out her Etsy shop here

**Size (NB -3 mo ) -Easily adjustable for older toddlers or children See - option #2 below

Row 4 -  sl st up the side of the mask to row 1, ch 16, turn
Row 5- sc in 2nd ch from hook, and in each chain across, join with sl st to mask, fasten off and weave in ends. You’ll need a to sew the other end shut with the black yarn and tapestry needle. 
Option #1 - Slide the mask onto the hat for embellishment or you can use it on a baby with out the hat
Option #2 - Making ties -  Substitute this for Row 4 & 5 instead 

Row 4 -  sl st up the side of the mask to row 1, ch 25, turn
Row 5- sc in 2nd ch from hook, and in each chain across, join with sl st to mask, sl st across the top of row 1 to opposite corner, ch 22, sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, and in each chain across, sl st back to mask, fasten off and weave in ends. 

This is pictured on my 3rd old ;) 

Option #3 - on Row 4 instead of ch 16 you could do a sc chain-less foundation chain in place of row 4 & 5 plus it will give you more stretch around. I have a link on my blog how to do a chain-less foundation

Can you substitute a bulky yarn instead of 2 strands of worsted weight?
