You will need
· Worsted weight yarn
· scrap yarn in contrasting colors if you are adding trim, eyes, nose, or ears
· Size K (6.5mm) and size I (5.5 mm) crochet hooks
· Smaller crochet hook or yarn needle to weave in ends.

The photos shown, and pattern was created using

Off White Hat — Red Heart Super Saver in “Soft White”, Cafe for ears and nose and Light Blue for eye patch.

These are heavier worsted weight yarns therefore if you are using a different weight yarn you may need to adjust your hook size and/or number of stitches.

HAT Pattern
Hat is crochet in a spiral (continuous rounds) meaning you will not join at the end of each round.  It is recommended you place a marker to keep track of your last stitch in each round.
Crown  with 6.5 mm (K) hook
Round 1– Chain 2 and double crochet 10 times into 2nd chain from hook or
if you are using magic circle make 10 dc in loop.
Round 2– Make 2 dc’s in each stitch. Place marker on last stitch
made. You should have 20 stitches
Round 3– *1 dc in next stitch, 2 dc in next stitch* repeat from * around (30 stitches total)
Round 4 –*1 dc in each of the next 2 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch* repeat around (40 stitches total)
Round 5–*1 dc in each of the next 4 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch* repeat from * around (48 stitches total).  At the end of this round your circle should measure approximately  6″ across which will give you a hat 18.75 -19.25“
Rounds 6 – 11 (or until hat is approx 6 ½” long when measuring from top center to bottom.) Dc in each stitch around hat making sure to move marker with each completed row.
Leave marker in place –this will be the back center of your hat.
Don’t cut yarn yet.

Directions given are for sewing the embellishments on with yarn and a yarn needle. If a neat appearance on the inside of the hat is a big concern for you, you may find regular sewing thread to be more invisible.

Baby Beanie with Mouse Ears and a Bow

On my favorite animal hats page there is an adorable hat that was decorated up with mouse ears, a bow and polka dots and just screams “Minnie”.  The original pattern for the hat disappeared off the Internet and there are many comments from readers asking how to make one.

Over the weekend I hooked up this basic beanie and added embellishments.  The pattern used is free and Ravelry and she has great videos to help with sewing on the ears so they don’t flop over.

Kitty Cat Baby Hat – Crochet

FREE Kitty Crochet Hat Pattern

Newborn & 0-3 Months
~updated November 1, 2014

kittyhat4wm

You will need:

  • 5 mm (size H)crochet hook
  • Worsted weight yarn in Ivory (about 75 yards)
  • Worsted weight yarn in Pink (less than 50 yards)
  • Small amount of yarn in black, white and red.
  • Yarn needle
  • Ruler or tape measure
  • Scissors
  • Sewing thread and sewing needle

Gauge:  At the end of round 7: Your circle should measure 4” across. Adjust your hook size as needed.

For the hat itself you will use my single crochet baby hat pattern    There is a download link at the end of this pattern that includes the full hat and kitty cat hat pattern.

For the cat’s eyes, nose, and ears use your 5 mm crochet hook

Kitty’s Nose
Ch4
In 2nd ch from hook make 2 TC, slip stitch in next, 2 TC in next.

Fasten off and leave a long tail. Use yarn needle to stitch up to middle of nose and wrap yarn 3 or more times around the center.

Use your tails to sew the nose to the hat. Weave your ends in neatly and hide them behind the nose.

Kitty’s  mouth-
With a strand of red yarn 12” or so, either embroider a small satin stitch mouth shape OR you can tie a knot in the center of the strand, tie another knot directly over that know. Use the tails to sew this to the hat. Weave the tails in well behind the nose making sure they are secured and fasten off.

Kitty’s Eyes
With black yarn, and a long tail, ch2, make sc into 1st ch made. Fasten off and again leave a long tail for sewing and embroidering.

With a strand of white yarn about 6” long and your yarn needle work a single embroidery stitch along the inside of one of the sc’s. Repeat this on the other eye. Fasten your yarn on the wrong side of the eye, weave in the ends so they are hidden and secure.

Sew eyes onto hat using your tails of black yarn. When the eye is secured make two eyelashes on each the top and the bottom of the eye by running a short embroidery stitch diagonally away from your eye. Without pulling too tightly weave your tails in behind the eye so they are hidden and fasten off.

Kitty’s Whiskers
Use a 6” strand of yarn and your yarn needle to make a stitch of either side of the nose with the tails sticking out if the right side of the work. Tie them in a double knot and then a 2nd double knot making sure they are not so tight as to pucker your hat. Trim them to the desired length and then use the point of your yarn needle to separate the strands.

To keep the knots from coming undone (it seems people are drawn to touching the whiskers which doesn’t help them stay tied) I like to run black sewing thread thru the knots a few times. TIP: make sure to tie off and hide the knot from your sewing thread behind the nose.

Cat Ears
Make 2- I made one in pink and one in ivory

With a long tail, chain 5

Rows 1 and 2: Sc 4, ch1, turn (4)

Now we begin decreasing each row to give the ears a triangular shape. This can be done several ways A) By sc2tog at either end of the rows B) by skipping the first sc of each row or C)by skipping the first sc in each row. In this pattern we will use sc2tog but of course you can use any method you are familiar with or prefer.

Row 3: sc2 tog, sc ea of nxt 2, ch1, turn (3)

Row 4: sc2 tog, sc the nxt, ch1, turn (2)

Row 5: sc2 tog, (1)

Fasten off leaving a long tail of 12” or more

Row 6: Attach your contrasting color, ch 1 and sc around the ear making 3 sc in the top of the ear to create a point. Again leave long tails.

With your yarn needle, work the strands of pink into the inside of the hat to get those out of the way. With your MC (Ivory) strands sew the ears to the top of the hat making sure to sew both in both the front and the back of the ear.

Work strands to inside the hat and weave them in.
TIP: When I have a project with this many ends to weave in I like to utilize as many as I can in an effort to keeping the inside of the hat looking as clean as possible. In the photo I have taken the tails from the ears and the tail from the very beginning of the hat and [after weaving them in securely] used the yarn needle to bring them back thru the inside of the first round. To do this just bring them all through, trim to the desired length and use the tip of the yarn needle to slightly separate the strands.

Braided Ties


For the braids in the photos I wrapped both the ivory and pink yarn around the a composition notebook (9.75” tall) 12 times (12 of each color) per earflap.


IMG_6613


Using a crochet hook pull them thru the hole made in the bottom of the earflap by inserting crochet hook from the inside to outside.

Pull ends thru the loop made and gently pull until they are wrapped over the end of the ear flap. See photos below.

Arrange the yarn into three sections and braid. Fasten the braids by tying yarn around them. With a strand of yarn 24” long wrap the tied off spot.

Use your yarn needle to work the two tails under the wrap (see photo)
braids6-pull-tails-under-wrap

Trim your ends to even them up.

Pat yourself on the back–you just made a kitty hat!

Don’t forget to take a picture and post it to your Ravelry projects or the Craftsy project page.
