Happy Saturday! I hope you’ve had a great week so far. Today, I am sharing a crochet Mockingjay Pin (from the Hunger Games books/movies) pattern with you!
The Hunger Games is one of my favourite book series of all time. As a lover of young adult fiction, I can confidently tell you that those books are the best of the best. They are full of now-iconic lines and quotes.
Also, the world building in the books is fantastic, and in the story there are so many items (like the Mockingjay pin) that are very symbolic. So, lots of ideas for crochet patterns!
This Mockingjay Pin would make a great addition to any Katniss costume/cosplay or just a great collectible for any Hunger Games fan.
If you liked this YA-inspired pattern and/or have leftover yellow yarn, you might also like my golden snitch pattern.
Without further ado, here is the pattern!
