Charity Hats Made In 2010

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

A baby crawls down the street in that hat; people know he’s not afraid of anything...

Cunning Crochet Baby Jayne Hat –

for the next generation of browncoats.


Materials: Less than a skein each of your favorite sport-weight yarns in yellow, red, and orange.

Hook: F (4.0)

Notions:  I'm thinking you might need a yarn needle and a pom-pom maker (or you can consult any one of the many pom-pom tutorials online.) 

Ch 4, join with a slip stitch to form a circle.

Round 1 – Ch 3, make 6 dc in circle. Join.

Round 2 – Ch 3, make 2 dc in each dc, Join.

Round 3 – Ch 3, make 2 dc in each dc. Join.

Round 4 – Ch 3, make 1 dc in the first dc, then two dc in the next. Repeat to the end. Join.

Round 5 – Ch 3, make 1 dc in the first 2 dc, then 2 dc in the next. Repeat to the end.  Join.

Round 6 – Ch 3, make 1 dc in each dc around.

Round 7 – Repeat Round 6.

Round 8 – Repeat Round 6.

Round 9 – Fasten off yellow, join orange.  Repeat Round 6.

Rounds 10-12 – Repeat round 6.  Fasten Off.


Ear Flaps: 

Leaving a 6 inch tail, Skip the first 5 stitches after the seam and join red in the 6th.  

Row 1 - Ch 3, make 1 dc in each of the next 8 stitches. Turn.

Row 2 – 4 – Repeat Row 1

Row 5 – Ch 3, 2 dctog in first and last two stitches.

Row 6 – 8 – Repeat Row 5.  You should be losing a couple of stitches on each row so the flap comes to a point.

Fasten off. 

Repeat the above on the other side of the seam (You should have 10 unworked orange stitches between the two flaps.)


Make a pom-pom using a small amount of each of the three colors. 


Weave the tail of your red joining thread down the earflap and tie it off with the earflap end. Do not weave in.  Leave them dangling.

 Weave in any yellow or orange ends that might be loafing about the place.

Attach pom-pom to top of cap.

Let me know if you have any questions!  


  1. Can you make that in grown up size? In warm tones? Cuz I like it!

  2. Thanks for the pattern! For future people, would you consider putting the number of stitches at the end of each row? I ended up with 51 at the widest part... not sure if that was the right number or not! ;)

  3. Well, I did it up to the part right before the doing the ear flaps, and it doesn't look like a hat...not sure where it went wrong, but this is not what the picture looks like.

  4. Are you counting the ch 3 as the first dc?
