Hammer Bros Crochet Tutorial

Happy Sunday!

Better late than never. But I am glad that I have the rest of the month to focus on my upcoming releases. This pattern marks the end of all my Phase 3 characters. Next up in Phase 4 will be eight main character patterns such as Yoshi, Mario, Luigi, Bowser, etc.

This Hammer Bro pattern is very similar to Koopa Troopa and in the beginning, I even contemplated putting the two patterns together.  However, in the end, I opted not to because ultimately after some investigation I decided that the Hammer Bro pattern would be made so that it is slightly bigger than the Koopa Troopa.

 

The approximate measurements using DK yarn and 3mm hook are 9 inches height, 6 inches width (arm span) and 5 inches length/depth.

Although the pictures are of Ice Bro, if you just change the main colour you can get all the different versions, i.e. hammer, ice, fire, etc. Just scroll for the pattern below…

I hope that this tutorial was easy to follow and he turned out as expected.

With the end of my super Mario series coming to an end I’ve been thinking to myself “What series should I do next?” When my son saw me finishing off Ice Bro he asked if when I have finished with Super Mario if I could start making Pokemon!!! I think that if I ever started making Pokemon I wouldn’t know where to end because there are just so many! If I started making them I could possibly spend the next 10 years making Pokemon.

If you have any suggestions for what my next series of crochet patterns should be please let me know. I am open to all ideas. Once I  have a shortlist of ideas I might create a poll on my Instagram page and put it to a vote.

Until the next post, happy crocheting!

      • Hi, I did not see this comment until months later but I am still interested in the pattern, however I am still unable to join, will this open back up?
