Halloween Costume Idea ~Zombie Lego Man

Halloween Costume Idea ~Zombie Lego Man
Most boys and girls love Lego!
One of my sons asked to be a Lego man for Halloween. He is a huge fan, and has built many sets. His collection is wonderful for an 11 year old boy, with almost every piece in it's place.
So I decided with his age, he has very few years left to enjoy 'trick or treating'. I don't know if I captured the whole Lego Zombie Apocalypse thyme, but I sure tried and my sons smile was all that mattered in the end.

Free Crochet Pattern ~Kaleidoscope Dream Circle Vest

Free Crochet Pattern ~Kaleidoscope Dream Circle Vest

I LOVE THIS YARN! It is called: Bernat Mosaic, the colour is 'Psychedelic'. I love everything about this yarn. I can crochet for hours and feel confident, as it worked perfect with my chosen hook, and in my hands. The colour change was spectacular and kept my eyes dancing as I was able to see clearly each stitch I had previously made.
I loved it so much I even ordered more Bernat Mosaic in other colours.
Note: When fastening off, or tying knots, be sure not to pull too hard as the ends will sometimes break shorter than anticipated, making weaving in ends a bit harder.

I Used:
Yarn: Bernat Mosaic ~Medium 4. Colour 'Psychedelic' (3 balls, approximately 300g).
I purchased this particular yarn here: E-Tent
Hook: 5.5 MM
Ribbon to lace it. You can also attach buttons. Get creative.

Special Abbreviations:
Ch = Chain.
Ss = Slip stitch.
Hdc = Half Double Crochet.
Lhdc = Long half double crochet.
Dc = Double crochet.
