HAWAIIAN SHIRT, SUN HAT & CAMERA
Free Crochet Outfit
I’ve made my Adam Gonk using Chunky (US Bulky) weight acrylic yarn and a 6mm hook. You can make your Gonk in any yarn type or weight. Use the same yarn weight and hook size as you use to make your Adam Gonk for the clothing.
You can use any colours you like to make your Tourist Gonk. Keep to the same yarn weight throughout, and try to keep to the same yarn brands for consistency.
Crochet Terms & Techniques Used
For this pattern, we will be using the following US crochet terms and techniques:
(ch) Chain, (sk) Skip, (sl st) Slip Stitch, (sc) Single Crochet, (inc) Increase – 2sc in the same stitch, (hdc) Half Double Crochet, (dc) Double Crochet, (sc2tog) Single Crochet 2 Together.
For a neater finish, use an invisible join technique to fasten off your last rounds. To do this, cut the yarn and pull the end up through the last st, use your yarn needle to thread the end through the second stitch and back into the last st, pull to adjust the loop to mimic the top of the ﬁrst stitch, and weave the end into the back to secure.
Tourist Gonk Base
Work the main body as detailed in the original Santa Gonk pattern from R1. to R7. in your chosen shoe colour. Work R8. & R9. in Skin Tone colour. Work R10. to R15. in your chosen shorts colour and ﬁnish with a round of slip stitches for the waistband. Ignore the slip stitches and work directly into the tops of R15., work R16. to R20. in your chosen vest colour. Work R21. to R30. in your Skin Tone colour for the head.
Work the nose as in the Santa Gonk pattern, and work the arms all in your Skin Tone colour.
Find the position for the nose by lining up the top of the nose under the 8th round from top. Attach the arms on either side under the 10th round from top.
Add hair to the head using the same technique as used for the beard. I have used a blend of Dark and Light Brown yarn, and attached around the top 3 rounds of the Gonk’s head. I have then trimmed the ends into style, making the back a little shorter than the front.
Hawaiian Shirt Crochet Pattern
The main shirt will be worked in rows, adding the collar afterwards, and working on the sleeves in rounds. Beginning ch1s are turning chains only and do not count as stitches.
Using your chosen shirt colour yarn, start with chaining 31,
sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each remaining ch, turn (30)
ch1, sc x2, inc, sc x2, ch5, sk5, sc x2, inc, sc x4, inc, sc x2, ch5, sk5, sc x2, inc, sc x2, turn (34)
ch1, sc x3, inc, sc x2, sc x5 along the ch sts, sc, inc, sc x8, inc, sc, sc x5 along ch sts, sc x2, inc, sc x3, turn (38)
ch1, sc x9, inc, sc x18, inc, sc x9, turn (40)
ch1, sc in each st, turn (40 for 5 rows)
ch1, sc in each st (40) Continue onto the edge and collar.
Edge and Collar
Starting from the same st as last worked into, sc x9 up along row edges of the piece,
now work the following along the opposite side of the original starting chain, [sl st, ch3, 2dc] into the same ﬁrst st, hdc x28, [2dc, ch3, sl st] into the last st,
continue down the other edge with sc x9, sl st to join into the ﬁrst st of R10. to join. Fasten off and weave in ends.
This edging will be worked on the right side of the shirt.
Hold the shirt with the right side facing you and neckline up. The skipped stitches and opposite side of the ch5s, and sc sts on either side made in R2. make the armholes.
Join yarn to the middle (3rd st) of the opposite side of the ch5.
sc in same place as join, sc x2 along opposite side of ch, sc around the side sc post, sc x5 along the skipped stitches of R1., sc around the side sc post, sc x2 along opposite side of ch, sl st into ﬁrst sc to join (12)
ch1, sc in each st, sl st into ﬁrst sc join (12 for 3 rounds) Fasten off and weave in ends.
Repeat for the other armhole.
Embroider some large Hawaiian style ﬂowers onto the shirt, using this diagram as a guide.
I have added 5 ﬂowers across the shirt. You can vary the size of your ﬂowers and add as many as you like.
Start with the Orange centre lines, embroider the yellow lines around them, and add the Green foliage to ﬁll in any larger gaps or wherever you like.
Bucket Hat Crochet Pattern
Work this piece in continuous rounds. When slip stitching to level off, do not pull the slip stitch tight like you would when joining. Keep the stitch even with the other stitches. This levelling slip stitch will become the last stitch of the round, moving the starting position for the next round 1 stitch forward.
Using your chosen hat colour, start with a magic ring,
sc x6 into mr, pull closed (6)
inc x6 (12)
*inc, sc,* repeat between * a total of 6 times (18)
*sc x2, inc,* repeat between * a total of 6 times (24)
*inc, sc x3,* repeat between * a total of 6 times, sl st into the ﬁrst st to level off (30)
work this round in the Back Loops Only,
sc in each BLO (30)
sc in each st (30)
*sc x9, inc,* repeat between * a total of 3 times (33)
sc x5, inc, sc x10, inc, sc x10, inc, sc x5, sl st into the ﬁrst st to level off (36)
work this round in the Front Loops Only,
*sc x5, inc,* repeat between * a total of 6 times (42)
sc x7, inc, sc x13, inc, sc x13, inc, sc x6 (45)
*sc x14, inc,* repeat between * a total of 3 times, sl st into the ﬁrst st to level off (48)
sl st in each st, sl st to join (48) Fasten off and weave in ends.
Add 2 lines of a lighter colour yarn along the base for a little extra detail.

Camera Crochet Pattern
This is modelled on a DSLR style camera, featuring a hand-grip and protruding lens.
Using Black yarn, start with chaining 6,
working from the 2nd chain from hook, sc x4, 3sc in the last ch, rotate to work along the other side of the starting chain, sc x5, sl st into the ﬁrst sc st to join (12)
ch1, sc in each st, sl st into the ﬁrst sc to join (12 for 3 rounds) Lightly stuff the piece with a little Black yarn.
ch1, sc2tog, sc, sc2tog, skip 4, sc x3, sl st into the ﬁrst sc to join (6) Fasten off leaving a long tail.
Use the tail end to sew the top together, ﬂattening and matching the 1st stitch to the 6th, 2nd to the 5th, and 3rd to the 4th. Feed the tail down to the previously skipped 4 sts and ﬂatten to sew these together in the same direction. Pinch the hand-grip into shape. Stitch along the inner edge of the hand-grip area, going through the front and back, to deﬁne and hold the shape. Weave in and trim off the excess tail end.
Using Light Grey yarn, start with a magic ring,
sc x6 into mr, cut yarn and fasten off with an invisible join (pull the end up through the last st, use your yarn needle to thread the end through the second stitch and back into the last st, pull to adjust the loop to mimic the top of the ﬁrst stitch, weave the end into the back to secure) (6)
Hook through the Back Loop Only of any stitch, pull through your Black yarn to join and create a loop on hook. sl st in each BLO, ending with the same stitch as joining, sl st into the ﬁrst sl st to join (6)
Work this round going through the Back Loops Only of the previous Black stitches plus the Back Loops of the Grey stitches of the ﬁrst round as well, ch1, sc in each st, sl st into the ﬁrst st to join (6) Fasten off leaving a long tail.
Tuck the starting tail ends into the lens piece to stuff, trimming off any surplus. Use your yarn needle and tail end to attach the lens onto the camera piece next to the hand-grip.
Strap & Details:
Split a length of Light Grey yarn to use half the thickness. Use your yarn needle to embroider a line across the top for the logo, a small circle at the top of the hand-grip for the shutter button, and add a small stitch to either side as the strap buckles.
For the strap, use Brown yarn and allow a little extra starting tail, make a slip knot and chain 30. Cut yarn and pull the end through the last ch to fasten off. Use your yarn needle to feed both ends into the camera at the side buckles. Fit the camera onto your Gonk and adjust the ends to position the camera strap at the desired length, and weave in the ends to secure.
