By: Teri Diamond for Diamond Crochet & Crafts © 2012


Abbreviations Used:
CH – Chain
HDC – Half Double Crochet

Tutorials available at www.diamond-crafts.com/crochet_tutorials.htm
Materials Needed:
     Bulky/Super Bulky Yarn – I used Bernat                        Baby’s Breath for the sample
      I Hook
     Yarn Needle
Size: 0-3 Month
Gauge: N/A (not gathered just yet)
Ch 4, sl st into 1st ch.
{The hat is worked in rounds.  It may be a good idea to leave a long enough tail to use as a marker throughout the pattern.}
Rnd 1 – Hdc 9 times in ch 4 circle. (9 hdc) {Place a marker to show where the round will end}
Rnd 2 – 2 hdc in each st around to marker, place marker (18 hdc)
Rnd 3 – Hdc in each st around, place marker. (18 hdc)
Rnd 4 – Repeat row 2 (36 hdc)
Rnd 5-11 – Hdc in each st around, place marker. (36 hdc)
Rnd 12 – Hdc in each st around to marker, sc in next st, sl st in next st, tie off and weave in ends.

Ears (Make 2):
Ch 4, sl st in 1st ch
Row 1 – 7 hdc in ch 4 sp, ch 1, turn
Row 2 – 0-3 Month - Sc in each st around, tie off
*Do NOT weave in ends, you will use them to attach the ears to the hat*

Attaching Ears:
Lie the hat flat and position ears so that the top of the ear is at about the bottom of round 2 and the bottom of the ear is at about the bottom of round 5.  Attach the ears by tying the two strands (one from the beginning of the ch for the ears and the other is the ending tail) together, sewing the remaining end of the ear down and weaving the ends in on the INSIDE of the hat.

Next Pattern... Hmmmm

So I have been playing with patterns and am totally stuck between these two beanie hats for the next pattern!

Butterfly Kisses Beanie
Both a relatively simple and work up super fast with little yarn usage so they are great for leftovers!

Breast Feeding Boob Beanie
Let me know what YOU want to see!  You post the pattern name that YOU would like posted for FREE and I will post the hat with the MOST VOTES tomorrow night!

Happy Crafting!
