My niece loves Hello Kitty, and my nephew loves Spiderman. So they wanted me to make them hats they could wear all the time. Of course there is no pattern for any of them so I made them up as I went along.
Hello Kitty hat was pretty easy. I made a kid's hat in white, crocheted 2 black and 1 yellow ovals for the eyes and the nose. Two small triangles made the ears and for the ribbon I crocheted a straight piece, folded it in half and wrapped some yarn around the middle.
Spiderman was more difficult. I held the two colors together and just used the black where it seemed right. I also crocheted some rows in black to give it the right look.
Then I made two triangles in white and sewed them on (pretty wonky I know
Here are the action photos:
They seem pretty happy, don't they?
And I think the basic pattern I came up with was something like this. You may need to adjust for size, sorry I didn't write the pattern down while working on them. But this will give you an idea:
1: Ch 4, sl st tog to form a ring. Ch 3, 13 dc in the ring
2: Ch 3, dc in same st, 2 dc in each st around
3: Ch 3, dc in the same st, *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st. Repeat from * around
4: Ch 3, dc in the same st, *dc in next 2 stitches, 2 dc in next st. Repeat from * around
5: Ch 3, dc in each st around
6: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in each st around
7-15 repeat round 6
You may need to repeat a few more rows if you want them to be bigger.
Thanks for looking, I hope you like them
