Hey all! I really need your help, my friend saw this hat on Flickr and would love to have one for herself to wear and I have no clue how to go about making it. I can get the basic hat part, but how would I do the chocolate and whippped cream and such? Any help is great appreciated~! <333

Well, you saud "any help" and I am not a "seasoned crocheter" by any means, but I'm bored and hopefully I can help a little!!!

The chocolate looks like a blob. Literally. Ummm... ch 2 , 2 sc into first ch, turn, 1 sc in each st, ch1 turn, *2sc in first st, 1 sc in remaining st, ch 1 turn. Repeat from the * until it is the width you like, then stop adding the extra stitch in eah row and continue up until you have the length you want. Looks like a couple of those triangle-type shapes would make good chocolate sauce. Because they are under the whipped cream, i would be very concerned about making it one solid piece.

The whipped cream looks like a frilly-edged circle... So, I guess the same way you would start the hat, a circle, and then do some edging to make it frill. I think putting three stitches in each st around would work. (Does that makes any sense?)

And the cherry is a little amigurimi ball. With a tail left out and tied in a knot.

(And if you wanna get really freaky about it, I am sure a better hooker will point out that it seems to be crocheted from the cherry, down... but I don't know the beginning of how that would be done Huh)

Hopefully that helps s little!!

I know melbangel is a designer who sells on etsy.  Maybe she's selling the pattern?

It would have to be sized up considerably since the OP wants a human-sized one instead of the Blythe hat designed by melbangel . I'm not sure how much help the Blythe pattern would be in that circumstance.

To my way of thinking, and I certainly could be mistaken and often have been in the past, making a person hat inspired by a doll hat is a different thing entirely and not ripping off the designer. Trying to make my own doll hat just like it, however, would be.

Melbangel's design is very cute.
