Making the top of the hat
ch 4 and sl st into beginning chain to form a ring. Sc 10 into ring. (10)
sc 2 into first stitch and using your marker, mark this beginning st. Continue to sc 2 in each st around. (20)
sc into each st around (20)
sc 7, then do a dec, sc 7, then do a dec, sc last two sts (18)
sc 6, then do a dec, sc 6 then do a dec, sc last 2 sts (16)
Rounds 6 – 10
sc 1 in all sts around (16)
Dc 3 into all sts around (48) ch 1 cut yarn
Making the Bottom
ch 4, sl st into beginning st to form a ring, ch 1 and sc 10 into ring (10)
sc 2 into all sts (20)
sc 2 in first st, sc 1 in next (sc 2, sc1) repeat to end (30)
sl st into next st and ch 2 (this counts as first dc) dc into same st.
dc 1 into next st, dc 2 into next st (dc 1, dc 2) repeat til end of round (45) ch 1 and leave yourself a LONG tail, because you will be using this tail to sew the bottom to the top and to sew your metal clip barrette to your hat.
Making the Flower
change to your 3.5 mm hook, US E
ch 3, sl st to beginning st to form a ring.
ch 3, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sl st into last ch, then sl st into ring, ch 3 and repeat 4 or 5 more times or as many petals as you like.
Putting it all together
First sew your flower onto your hat. Then stuff your hat.
Then sew the bottom part to the hat using the whip stitch, skipping 2 sts in between, and pulling snug, this will give you a ruffle look to your edge.
Now with the flower facing you, line up your needle to be in the center left and grab your metal barrette. Like picture shows below.
Making sure that the barrette opens to the left, sew your barrette on by first going between the barrette, then into your hat.
After doing this a few times you can wrap your yarn around your barrette a few times before continuing to sew through middle and the hat again.
Make it snug against hat and your done!
TIP: Helps the hat not to droop if you sew the brim together in the middle somewhere next to the barrette, just work a X pattern to make it snug.
