Crochet Iron Man Arc ‘Light’

May 14, 2010

Last weekend we watched ‘Iron Man 2’ which was an awesome movie. Of course, being a comic book geek, I have enjoyed the majority of movies based on comic books. I also love Robert Downey, Jr. and am so happy that he is Iron Man. In the movie at the Stark Expo, The audience had on flashlights on their hands that resembled Iron Man’s weapon. I thought it’d be cute to crochet it.

I wished I had some glow in the dark yarn because that would have been super cute for the center. Instead, I used some sparkle yarn I bought last Christmas. When I was making this, I used my hand as my guide but as you can see, it’s a little big for a child. Here is the pattern –

If you have any questions, please leave a comment as I haven’t written that many patterns.

I’m thinking this would be a cute center to fingerless gloves or even gloves. Anyway, my model likes it but she seems to live everything I crochet – which only encourages me to crochet more.
