Hunger Games Knitting/Crochet Patterns

Like a lot of people right now I’m up to my neck in Hunger Games and I have no particular urge to change that. I adore the characters, even the baddies; they’re twisted and complicated in the best possible ways. Katniss is one of the best characters I’ve read in a long time with her smartness and her capability. She’s great.

While I’m re-reading the books I thought I’d get another one of those fandom knitting pattern pages done.

I’m going to start with the obvious. Anyone with even a vague interest in fibre arts sat up and took notice at Katniss’s cowl in the first scene of Catching Fire. You know the one I’m talking about. That totally awesome one-slee^ed thick-cowled thing that stole the show. Funnily enough there’s a few patterns for your perusal on Ravelry.


 This is the most popular Katniss Cowl on Ravelry and I guess I can see why. It looks like the real deal. I have never seen anything like her cowl but I love the way it’s so… well, impractical, but it still looks like it fits the scene. Strange indeed. This pattern is a paid-for one; click here or on the image to go to it.



I think this is the best pattern. There’s something about the neck that looks right. It doesn’t sit the same way as the original maybe but it’s still pretty close. I would feel totally up to wandering around the woods shooting squirrels through the eyeballs with this. Of course, a bow and arrow might be a bit more useful in that scenario. Click here or on the image to go to the download page; this one is free from Ravelry.

Now on to the other patterns. I found some Katniss amigurumi that I might make one day with that magical free time I get between projects… or I might live vicariously through others who make it.



Isn’t she ADORABLE? No. Because Katniss is not adorable, she is kickass. But this is sort of cute. I’d like to put pipe-cleaners in the limbs and make her do all sorts of kickass poses. TAKE THAT, CATO!

There are all sorts of things of this ilk on Ravelry, I suggest you go take a look. For example, a Mockingjay chart so you can knit your own rebellious fare.

Go on. Stick it to the Capitol. If Johanna Mason can do it, why can’t you?

And may the odds be ever in your favour.
