The Justice League: The Flash – Crochet Pattern

The Flash - Free Crochet PatternMy son’s favorite superhero is The Flash. He’s only 5 and The Flash has been his favorite superhero for a couple years now, which I think is pretty amazing since The Flash isn’t a mainstream superhero. He’s gaining some popularity lately, but he still takes a back burner to other superheroes like Batman, Superman, Spiderman, etc. And at 5, kids tend to follow what everyone else is doing or likes, so I found his interest in The Flash pretty awesome! Of course, that meant I had to create him a crocheted version of The Flash, especially since The Flash is really hard to find in retail stores. So, I introduce to you, my version of The Flash crochet pattern. Enjoy!
