Need a top hat for a fancy Mr. Teddy?
I've got one for you! Done in rounds and single crochet, this simple pattern is easy and fun to do. It only took me about 30 minutes to come up with the pattern, so I'm sure it will take less to only do the crochet part. Best part? It's another free pattern. Have fun! Let me know if you find any inconsistencies.
sl st: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
Toy Top Hat Pattern
Ch 4. Join with a sl st.
R1: sc inc around (8)
R2: sc inc around (16)
R3: (sc inc, sc) around (24)
R4: (sc inc in next 2 st, sc in next 2 st) 6 times (36)
R5: sc around in back loops only (36)
R6-12: sc around, working in front loops again (36) turn
R13: Working in back loops only, (sc inc, 8 sc) 4 times. (40) join first with previous round, then with current round.
R14: Working in front loops again, (sc inc, 9 sc) 4 times (44) join with sl st. tie off.
Alternate Hat Bill/Brim
By doing the previous pattern, the bill or brim of the hat will show the underside of the crochet pattern (because of the turn). If you're using black, this won't be noticeable. If you are using another color and would prefer to have the right side up, here is an alternative:
Crochet rows 1-12. Do not turn after Row 12.
R13: Working in previous round, (sc inc, 8 sc) 4 times (40)
R14: Working in current round again, (sc inc, 9 sc) 4 times (44) join with sl st. tie off.
