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.
