Crochet Pattern: Argh Me Matey Pirate Eye Patch

By Erin Burger – 7 Comments

Super fun and super simple, this pirate’s eye patch works up in minutes and is good for hours of play or for a quick ‘costume’ while handing out candy this Trick or Treat.

100% wool yarn isn’t recommended for this pattern because it can irritate the eye. Acrylic, acrylic mix, cotton or cotton mix yarns are recommended to prevent eye irritation and also to keep the eye patches strap from stretching too much!

    Hurray! My ten year old brother wanted a gift he could crochet for his siblings, but he doesn’t have the patience to stick with a project very long. This is SO perfect for him to do. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    My grandson is going to a gun shoot at the gun club. It is an air gun. He has trouble closing his one eye to shoot. I am going to make this in a camo yarn. Thanks !

    How would I do the last part that says “attach a ch on left corner of eye patch w/ sl st, finish off w/ a tight knot to insure strap doesn’t break” that is the only part that is confusing? I have to finish this for my nephew’s birthday party tomorrow, so please help me…

      Hi Jennifer, after you make your long chain, you’ll make a slip stitch into the left corner of the eye patch. That slip stitch will join the end of the chain to the left side.
