Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know how to work in the round and increase/decrease.
  • Basic knitting for crochet/knit version - working in the round on dpns/circular needles. Although this is not required as there is a crocheted bottom option included in the pattern as well.

Pattern Description:

Looks good enough to eat, right? I think so. First I created this cupcake with a crocheted top and a knitted bottom - then decided I'd include an all crochet version for those who don't knit or would prefer it. This hat is loads of fun to make - I'm guessing you won't be able to make just one!

You will receive directions to make this hat how you wish - BOTH the all-crochet and the crochet/knit versions are included in this pattern.
