Sweet tooth anyone? This hat is super adorable!!!! My grandmother-in-law asked me to make one for her friend’s baby and it is just too stinking cute! >.< The design is by Repeat Crafter Me but sadly she only has a pattern for size 0-3 month available on her site. I’ll share the one I made for my daughter. She’s over one years old but she’s got a tiny head and is still wearing size 6-12 months hats.
Repeat Crafter Me lists the materials, gauge, and abbreviations on her pattern. I basically built on it to make it fit size 6-12 months. SO here is how the hat pattern will look like for a 6-12 month baby:
Size: 6-12 months
Magic Ring, chain 1, 9 HDC in ring, join, chain 1
Round 2: Work 2 HDC into each st around, join, chain 1 (18 HDC)
Round 3: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in next, Repeat around, join, chain 1 (27 HDC)
Round 4: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 2, Repeat around, join, chain 1 (36 HDC)
Round 5: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 3, Repeat around, join, chain 1 (45 HDC)
Round 6: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 4, Repeat around, join, chain 1 (54 HDC)
Round 7 -12: HDC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (chain 3 at the end of round 12) (54 HDC)
Now you are going to make the shell edge…
Round 13: Make 4 DC in the same stitch as your chain 3, skip 2 stitches, SC, skip 2 stitches, *make 5 DC’s all in one stitch, skip 2 stitches, SC, skip 2 stitches, repeat from * the rest of the way around. Join to top of chain 3. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Round 14: Now it gets a little complicated. You are going to want to switch colors to brown (or whatever you are using for the base of the cupcake) and join the yarn to round 12 (not the shell edge). You will have to flip the shell edge up and look for the row of stitches from round 12. Chain 1 and HDC in each stitch around, join, chain 1.
Round 15-17: FPHDC in first stitch, BPHDC in next, repeat around, join.
F/O and weave in ends.
You would then go on to see her pattern about ear flaps and how to sew in the sprinkles. 🙂
