I saw the cupcake hat listed last week and remembered how badly I wanted to make one for my niece. I had the idea knocking around in my head for months how I wanted to do it, what yarn I wanted to use... Seeing the other one motivated me to get it done.

I'm not thrilled with the pictures. I'll get some better ones when I can get some better lighting.

Not really. I was loosely basing it off of a knit hat I saw online. I had planned on just making the top a regular sc style, until I made a hat for my daughter a few weeks ago that was made with hdc in back loop only, and spiral. I decided that would be perfect for the top, makes it look like the frosting is swirled. And the bottom was easy too, just sc back loop. When I got the two pieces together though, I realized the border around the frosting, like on her hat, was neccesary.

Funny thing about the sprinkles. They came from a skein of Lion Brand Fancy fur I have. The fur that was wrapped around the little pom-pom type things there was brown, the yarn was hideous. So I pulled the whole skein apart. They worked perfect.

Go ahead and try making it though, once you get started you'll realize it's easy. It came together in half a day, the hardest part was the sprinkles.

Seeing all these cupcake hats makes me want to make some!  I like the swirls on yours, and the sprinkles!  I'd like to make one for my daughter, and for me, so we match.  Yeah, it's lame, poor kid, but she's only two and she'll never remember! LOL!

Love this! I might eventually try to make one for myself, but as I don't crochet past basic rectangles, I'd be sewing.  Cheesy

Thank you very much, everybody! I am definitely going to have to take a pic of her in this hat, it will make the hat so much cuter.

(Please, please, do not profit from my pattern.) Well, i'll try my best to write a pattern for you. I've never wrote a pattern before, nor did I write down the pattern as I worked it, so forgive me if it's hard to follow.

What I did was measure my nieces head around. Then I made a chain as tall as i wanted the bottom to be. Then single crochet back loop only (blo) until it was long enough around, stopping just short of an exact measurement as blo tends to be somewhat stretchy. Sc the two ends together.

Next make the top: chain 4 join into ring, hdc 10 inside ring. Don't join rounds, just mark first stitch of each round, as this is done in a spiral. Do 2 hdc blo in each stitch around second round. Equaling 20 sts **(It was pointed out to me on ravelry "For the pattern, its not really BLO hdc. .Its more like, the loop behind the back loop. Thats what make the swirly design on the top" I hope that this is understood. I didn't realize my instructions didn't reflect properly the design (thanks craftypants!))**  3rd round is hdc blo 1st st, 2 hdc blo next 1 around. The rest of the formula works like this:

4th round 1 hdc blo in next 2 st, 2 hdc blo in next 1.
5th round 1 hdc blo in next 3 st, 2 hdc blo in next 1.
6th round 1 hdc blo in next 4 st, 2 hdc blo in next 1.
and so on, adding one more stitch to the single hdcs you do, and ending with 2 in next one st. The total number of sts in one repeat always equals the round you are on, as in round 6, there are 1 hdc in next 4 stitches, and 2 in next one 1+1+1+1+2=6.

Follow formula until the top is slightly bigger around and slightly longer than it needs to be. Do not fasten off yet.

The next part is somewhat tricky. Connecting the two pieces. As the top and bottom are made seperately, and customized, they will not be the same number of stitches, so we need to do some simple math. As an example, say my bottom is 40 rows long, and my top is 66 stitches around, take the larger number and divide it by the smaller number, in this case 66/40=1.65. So roughly every 11/2-2 stitches we need to sc2tog. How you do this does not need to be exact, just as long as it's mostly even all the way around.

To make the shell border, in the same sts that you just joined the two pieces together, *sc in st dc in same st, then dc in next st and sc in same st. Continue from * around until finished.

To make a pom-pom for the top, i used the instructions on this page: http://skamama.blogspot.com/2007/10/how-to-make-pom-pom-method-ii.html

Use the same string you use to finish up your pom-pom to sew it to the top of your hat.

How you attatch, and what you use for sprinkles is up to you.


I hope you can manage to follow the pattern okay. It really is much easier to make than it sounds.

Someone on ravelry actually pointed out "For the pattern, its not really BLO hdc. Its more like, the loop behind the back loop. Thats what make the swirly design on the top."

I will change the directions to reflect that.
