Hey all. Happy Thanksgiving!

I recently got a request from a photographer friend to crochet her some stocking caps for her baby models. Smiley
The sample picture she sent me:

I'm not sure how to go about this.  Do any of you have a pattern/instructions handy?

Well, when you are making a regular hat, you start by crocheting a flat circle until the crown is big enough, and then just add rows until it's long enough.  For a stocking cap, you want to start with a cone instead of a flat circle, so you do fewer increases each row until you have the crown size you want, then add non-increase rows until it's the length you want.  The ribbing on the brim is probably alternating front post dc with back post dc every other stitch.

Here is a pattern for sale on etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62786499/pattern-easy-elf-hat-festive-stocking

And here is a free one: http://web.archive.org/web/20031202150257/http://www.yarncat.com/conehat.html

I haven't made either of these patterns, but they seem kind of like what you are after.
