Robin Pattern (Red Robin, Tim Drake)

18 Dec

So I made a Robin for my friend Glenn for Christmas. I had him pick out his favorite costume for Robin, and he chose a red costume- the Tim Drake Robin. I couldn’t find a pattern, so I had to make up my own (again). It was kind of a pain in the ass, but I really like how it turned out. (Even if Robin has some birthing hips.) This pattern could easily be altered using different colors to make different super heroes. I plan to test this theory out over time.

I’ve uploaded the pattern to my Ravelry account as a PDF and I’ll also add it after the jump here for those of you who don’t use Ravelry. And, if you don’t, I highly suggest that you start. It’s the best free knitting site I have ever found. There are so many patterns to choose from it is ridiculous. And a large amount of them are free, too. They also have crochet patterns for those of you who prefer one needle to two needles.

It’s a quick knit because I did it in garter stitch all the way up. The part that takes longest is putting it together and stuffing it. At least, that was how it felt to me!
