Join 2 ears together to help them stand up (you can stuff the ears if you want to but I haven't).
Join the ears to the hat. I find it easier to put the hat flat so you can position them correctly

join the 2 ends together of the middle together. Slip the middle over the bow and place in the middle. you can fasten it to the bow.

Fasten bow onto the hat

I'm trying out your pattern and getting a little confused. (know that I'm new to crochet)

Once I get to about row 5 it started getting bunchy. So I started again to be sure that I was truly counting each stitch properly. I understand that once you finish each stitch in the row there are 40 stitches you have completed. My confusion comes in that if doesn't match up. If each part I repeat only uses 2 previous stitches, it's a total of 14 (2x7). When you add the 4 previous stitches, you have a total of 18. That doesn't add up to the 32 stitches in the previous row. What am I doing wrong? Am I supposed to skip a stitch??

Thank you for your help.

What you need to do on each row is increase by 8 stitches. I find it easier if I make the stitch which you need to join to which is the ch2

You start with 8 stitiches in round 1
The you put 2 stitchs in each stitch which then makes 16
The next round you do 1 stitch and then the next has 2 stitches in this stitch to create the increase. You keep doing that around. So it’s 1 sc, 1 sc increase x 8
You then go up 1 stitch that you only do one stitch in. so the next round you need to do 2 sc, 1 sc increase.
By round 5 you should have 3sc, 1 sc increase. As long as you keep your tention even and the numbers even all the way round it should be ok. If you are still having problems try doing it with a hdc.

For a hdc only do 6 hdc’s in the 2nd ch from the hook. You then increase by 6 each time. If you do it this way only increase to the round where you have 9hdc, 1 hdc increase. Then you do hdc around till round 25 and this should fit.

Any problems let me know.

Hi Susan

How big will the hat be? will it fit 0-3 months or 3-6 months. I want to crochet for my girl 3-6 months, which hook size should I use?
