FREE CROCHET PATTERN: Pigtails hat

This hat was an order from my friend for her 1yo daughter!

I am so happy I could turn this idea into reality! I hope you like it as much as I do! 🙂

So, if you are ready, LET’S START! 🙂

Row 3: Ch 2, 1 hdc in the same hdc that you made slst, 2 hdc in next stitch, *1 hdc in next, 2 hdc in next (repeat from * around), slst in the 1st hdc from beginning.

Row 4: Ch 2, 1 hdc in the same hdc that you made slst, 1 hdc in next, 2 hdc in next stitch, *1 hdc in next 2 stitches, 2 hdc in next (repeat from * around), slst in the 1st hdc from beginning.

Row 8-14: Repeat row 7.

 

 

Row 15: Ch 2, 1 hdc in every hdc to the end but through the 3rd loop of hdc stitch from previous row, slst in the first hdc.

If you turn your work a little you will see that third loop.

It is time to make the pigtails holding one strand of yarn and with 4 mm crochet hook.

 

Make 2 longer: Ch 80, 3 hdc in 3rd chain from the hook, 3 hdc in every chain to the end, fasten off.

And 4 shorter: Ch 60, 3 hdc in 3rd chain from the hook, 3 hdc in every chain to the end, fasten off.

 

 

Tie 1 longer and 2 shorter on one side of the hat, and other 3 on the other side of the hat with a piece of satin ribbon. You can also make a string of chains with yarn instead of satin ribbon if you want.

 

 

Wave in all ends and you’re DONE!!! 🙂
