I tested out my pattern notes by making two mini hats for my daughters' Bitty Twins.  They turned out so cute!  The Pastel one is made with Bernat Softee Baby, and the rainbow one is made with Caron Simply Soft.

Pattern at the end of this post!

My daughter needed a quick hat for her school play, so I crocheted all day Tuesday to make her this.  I didn't want her hair to show through the holes, so I crocheted a liner first, then made the rainbow part second.  I crocheted the two together and then made earflaps and added two long braids. It's made with Bernat Softee Chunky yarn and an I hook. It's very soft and very warm--almost too warm for April!



Full costume--I made the tulle tutu for her as well. Smiley

Supplies:
For the mini hats--baby yarn or caron simply soft yarn--even sport weight would work well and an F Hook.
For the bigger hat--Bernat softee chunky yarn or another chunky style yarn and an I hook.

Liner--Use White for this step
1. Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
2. (2 sc in each sc) around (12 sc)
3. (sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (18 sc)
4. (sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24 sc)
5. (sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (30 sc)
6. (sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (36 sc)
7. (sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (42 sc)
8. (sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (48 sc)
9. (sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (54 sc)
10. (sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (60 sc)
11-24. (sc in each sc) around (60 sc)
Finish off, Weave in ends.

Top layer--You can change colors, or you can use the same color throughout (the pastel hat is an example)
1. (color 1--yellow) Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Join with a sl st in first sc.
2. Ch 4, (counts as first dc, ch 1 throughout pattern) 2 dc in same st as join, (ch 1, 3 dc in next sc) 5 times. Sl st in 3rd ch of ch 4. Finish off, or continue on if using only one color throughout pattern. (6 3dc shells)
3. (color 2--orange) (for color change--pull up a loop in any ch 1 space throughout pattern) Ch 4, 2 dc in same sp as join, ch 1, 3 dc in same sp.  (ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 1 sp, ch 1, 3 dc in same sp) in all ch 1 sp around. Sl st in 3rd ch of ch 4, finish off. (12 3dc shells)
4. (color 3--red or bright pink) ch 4, 2 dc in same sp as join. (ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) in next ch 1 sp. (ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 1 sp, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 1 sp) 5 times. Sl st in 3rd ch of ch 4. Finish off. (18 3dc shells)
5. (color 4--purple) ch 4, 2 dc in same sp as join. (ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 1 sp) around. Sl st in 3rd ch of ch 4. Finish off. (18 3dc shells)
6. (color 5--blue) repeat row 5.
7. (color 6--green) repeat row 5.
8. (color 7--blue) repeat row 5.
9. (color 8--purple) repeat row 5.
10. (color 9--red) repeat row 5.
11. (color 10--orange) repeat row 5.
12. (color 11--yellow) sc 60 evenly around.  It is easiest to sc in each dc, and in only in each 3rd ch 1 sp. Sl st in first sc, finish off.
Weave in all ends.

Putting both together:
1. Turn the liner inside out, so that when you crochet the two together, the nice side will show.
2. Put the liner inside the finished top layer.  Match up the bottom edges.
3. Using white yarn again, poke the hook into the top layer sc, then through the sc in the liner.  You will be working through both layers for this row. Sc in each sc around.  Mark last st.
4. Sc in each sc around.  
5. Sc in next 12 sc.
6. Ch 1, turn. sc in each 12 sc across. (12 sc)
7. Ch 1, turn. dec over 2 sc, sc across, dec over the last 2 sc. (10 sc)
8. Ch 1, turn. sc in each sc across. (10 sc)
9. Ch 1, turn. dec over 2 sc, sc across, dec over the last 2 sc. (8 sc)
10. Ch 1, turn. sc in each sc across. (8 sc)
11. Ch 1, turn. dec over 2 sc, sc across, dec over the last 2 sc. (6 sc)
12. Ch 1, turn. sc in each sc across. (6 sc)
13. Ch 1, turn. dec over 2 sc, sc across, dec over the last 2 sc. (4 sc)
14. Ch 1, turn. sc in each sc across. (4 sc)
15. Ch 1, turn. dec over 2 sc twice. Finish off. (2 sc)
16. Count over 18 sc from edge of ear flap on row 4.  Pull up a loop of white and ch 1. Sc in same st and in next 11 sc.
17. Repeat rows 6-15 to complete 2nd ear flap.
18. With color 6, (green) Pull up a loop in any sc of row 4. Sc in each sc, and evenly around each ear flap.  Mark last st.
19. Sc in each sc around. Sl st in next st, Finish off.  Weave in ends.

For braids, cut 9 one yard lengths of yarn.  Poke through the bottom point of the ear flap and make both sides even.  Separate into 6 strands each and braid to desired length. Knot and trim ends.

That's it!  Let me know if there are any typos or other errors.  I had to type this on my kids' computer while the kids were making a LOT of noise and distracting me... Tongue

I absolutely love your hat. The liner idea is brilliant. I hate hair showing through holes. I have a bunch of Bernat Softee Chunky yarn laying around. This would be great to make.

Your daughter is so cute. She's rocking that tutu.  Smiley
