Arrr Matey! I Need a Crocheted Eye Patch!

Finishing

Cut a length of Round Cord Elastic.  Measure the circumference of the head and cut the elastic 1-inch shorter. For Darla’s and Drew’s the elastic measured 19-inches in length.

Thread one end on a yarn needle and attach it to the eye patch as follows.

Eyepatch 1

Eye Patch 2

Eyepatch 3

Eyepatch 4

Then take the two ends and knot them simply like this:

Eye Patch 5

Pull to tighten.

Eye Patch Knot 1

If the front buckles slightly, don’t worry! Just pull the elastic slightly in between the stitches to give it a bit more slack and it will flatten back out easily 🙂
