CROCHET PATTERN - Dinosaur Spikes

Add these simple dinosaur spikes to your favorite beanie, cap, or ear flap hat.  You could even sew them onto a store-bought hat if you wanted. 

I recommend you work up my Pat Hat Pattern (without the front flap).  Instructions include every size!

Need:  G hook (4.0 mm), some WW (size 4) yarn, yarn needle

Gauge:  Not important.

Note:  I work mine in a continuous spiral, but if you'd rather join at the end of each round, that's fine.

Start with magic ring/sliding loop
Round 1:  Ch 1, 6 SC in loop.
Round 2:  (1 SC in next, 2 SC in next) 3 times  [9 SC]
Round 3:  1 SC in each SC  [9 SC]
Round 4:  (1 SC in next 2, 2 SC in next) 3 times  [12 SC]
Round 5:  1 SC in each SC  [12 SC]
Round 6:  (1 SC in next 3, 2 SC in next) 3 times  [15 SC]
Round 7:  1 SC in each SC  [15 SC]
Round 8:  (1 SC in next 4, 2 SC in next) 3 times  [18 SC]
Round 9:  1 SC in each SC  [18 SC]
Slip stitch into next SC, then fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.

Lay your hat out flat so that you can see the ridge where the spikes should be sewn.  Use bits of yarn as place-markers, or just "eyeball" it if you're confident.  Then use a yarn needle & the long tail to sew the spikes on.  (FYI - the hat in the photo is toddler size & I needed 6 spikes.) Fasten off the tail securely on the inside of the hat & you're done.  Roar!
