All effort was made to ensure there are no problems with the pattern. If you find one please let me know.

Hat

 using cream, start by forming a magic ring

1. ch 2. 11 dc in ring. join to top of ch 2 (12 sts)

2.ch2. dc in same dc as ch 2.  2dc in each dc (24 st) join every round unless otherwise noted

3.ch 2  dc in same dc as ch 2. (2dc in next dc, dc in next dc) around (36 sts)

4.ch2, dc in same dc as ch 2 (2dc in next st, dc in next two sts) around (48 sts)

5.ch2 dc in same dc as ch 2 (2dc in next st, dc in next three sts) around (60 sts)

6. ch 2. dc in same st, dc all the way around. (60 sts each row) Continue in pattern until 9 rows of dc are done, OR until a hat height of 7.5" is achieved.
break off yarn using invisible knot.

Earflap: (make 2)

start by attaching cream yarn to hat, ch2 (counts as first stitch)

(I fold the hat in half so that the front is showing. I then count in 5 sts from each side and place a stitch marker. This is where I start my earflaps and I work toward the back of the hat where the joining "seam" is.)

1.dc 10, ch 2 turn

2.dc2tog, dc in next 7 st dc2tog ch 2 turn

3.dc2tog, dc in next 5 st, dc2 tog ch 2 turn

4.dc2tog, dc in nex 3 st, dc2tog ch 2 turn

5.dc2tog,  dc in nex st, dc2tog ch 2 turn

6.dc2tog twice. break off yarn.


Edging:

with OUTSIDE of hat facing you, attach variegated yarn to back of hat and ch 1. sc in each st around, working sc evenly over sides of earflaps. fasten off, tie in all loose ends.


Puppy ears (make 2)

using variegated yarn, start with magic ring

1. ch 2 in ring, 6 dc in  ring, join to top of ch 2. pull tail to close.

2. ch 2, dc in same st as ch 2. 2 dc in each st around. join to top of ch 2. ( 12sts. )

3. *ch 2, dc in same st as ch 2. 1 dc in each st around. Join to top of ch 2 (12 sts)**

4 - 8. repeat from * to **. break yarn leaving long tail for sewing.

Attach ears to sides of hat.

Puppy eye patch make 1

using cream yarn start with magic ring

ch 2, 11 dc in ring. pull tail closed. (12 sts)

this next part is a bit confusing. Basically you want one part of the circle to be thicker around the cream than the other part.

attach variegated yarn. ch 1 sc in same st as ch 1. 2 sc in each of the next 2 sts. sc in next st. hdc in same st as last sc. 2hdc in next st. 2hdc in next st.  hdc in next st. dc in same st as last hdc. 2 dc in next st. 2 dc in next st. 2 dc in next st. dc in next st. hdc in same st. hdc in next st. sc in same st. (24 sts). fasten off yarn, leaving long tail for sewing.


Puppy nose


 using cream, start by forming a magic ring

1. ch 2. 9 dc in ring. join to top of ch 2 (10 sts)

2.ch2. dc in same dc as ch 2.  2dc in each dc (20 st)

fasten off leaving long tail for sewing.

take brown or black yarn and ch 5. sc in second ch from hook. hdc in next st. dc in next st. trc in next st. fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing. (this will be shaped like a triangle)

sew onto cream circle, using long tail to sew a mouth onto the puppy by using back stitches. 



pin all parts onto hat, (ears, eyes, eye patch, and nose) sew all pieces on, taking extra care to securely fasten any buttons as these can pose a choking hazard. 

enjoy the puppy hat!
