We’re all A Little Mad: Crochet Mini Top Hat Pattern

hats2gether

 

Whenever I think of top hats I think of Alice in Wonderland. Who can forget the Mad Hatter and his huge hat? Not to mention the recent Disney remake with Johnny Depp (insert dreamy sigh here) and his character’s dramatic top hat. I love them, they look so fun 🙂

Yesterday I posed a picture of my black hat, (now named Black Cherry), and today I’ve made a shorter hat called Short Cake (get it? Haha puns…). I will be sharing the pattern for both.

Making them is super easy, and they hardly take any time at all.

Needed: 4.5 mm hook, 3.0 mm hook, Size 4 yarn (recommended: Red Heart & Caron Simply Soft), accessories  like buttons/ribbon/lace/feathers/beads. Optional: Head band, hair clips

Abbreviations:
Sc – Single stitch
Sl st – Slip stitch
Dc – Double crochet
2tog – Decrease stitch
Ch – Chain

————————————————————
Yay top hats, now I have two! 🙂 I think I’m either going to attach them to headbands or get a barrett so they stay positioned on my head better. I wish I didn’t make Black Cherry when I was tired, the ribbons came out a little sloppy but that’s what I get for crafting when I’m sleepy!

Speaking of which, I need to go to bed >_< Hope the hats bring a whimsical feel to you all. Thanks for stopping by~

  1. They are adorable, absolutely adorable. If you attach them to clip style barrettes, I imagine you could sell quite a few if you wanted to. So sweet.

  3. Whimsical is the perfect word to describe these hats! They sound really easy to make, too. I’ll have to try them when I finish some of my current projects~
