Hat -- Worshed Weight Yarn
Some times you have to truck along with worshed weight yarn. No shame. Let's make a hat.
Worshed Weight Yarn -- Just a bit. Scrap yarn is fine.
Row 1: Ch 2. Put 4 sc in 2nd ch in hook, do not turn
Row 2: Inc 2 sc in each sc (8 sc), do not turn (actually, never turn -- we're
Row 3: *Sc 1 in 1 sc, inc 2 in next sc* 4 times (12 sc)
Row 4: *sc 1 in next 2 sc, inc 2 in next sc* 4 times (16 sc)
Row 5: *sc 1 in next 3 sc, inc 2 in next sc* 4 times (20 sc)
Now you have a flat circle. Keep crocheting, 1 sc in each sc, making the hat as 'deep' as you need, until it covers your doll's head.
... Now, let's pretend for a moment that you made the top hat of that hat yellow, and the bottom half bright orange.
... And, for fun, what if you made two bright red ear flaps? Like so:
Row 1: Ch 6. Turn, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each sc in row (5 stitches)
Row 2 - 5: *Sc in each sc, ch 1, turn*
Row 6: Dc in next 2 sc, sc, dc in next 2 sc, ch 1, turn (3 stitches)
Row 7: DC over all 3 sc. Tie off, weave in ends.
So. Let's say you sewed those on the hat. Then, you made a pom pom for the top, and tied some yarn on the end of the ear flaps. What would you have?
