CROCHET PATTERN - Ted's Spiral Beanie

This is Ted's 4th year with our family, and his 3rd hat.  This year, Ted brought a note asking me to make him a new hat because it was a cold trip to and from the North Pole.  You can dress up your “Elf on the Shelf” in a cute, little beanie, too!

Materials:  F/5 (3.75mm) crochet hook, yarn needle, scissors

Yarn:  2 colors of fingering weight yarn, approximately 10 yds each.  Sample shown using Knit Picks Stroll Glimmer in Peacock (A) and Chrome (B).

Sizes:  Fits standard Elf on the Shelf dolls

Gauge:  6 HDC and 4 Rows = 1”

Difficulty:  Easy

Stitch Guide:  BL - back loop, CH - chain , HDC - half double crochet , SC - single crochet, SL ST - slip stitch, ST(S) - stitch(es)

Notes
  1. Count your STS as you go along to make sure you do the HDC and SC stitches in the correct places.
  2. Pattern indicates to work 2-3 SC for the spirals. If you can’t get good spirals with 2 SC in each CH, work 3 instead.
  3. Don’t fasten off at each color change. Carry the yarn along loosely.


With A, ch 12, turn.

Row 1: HDC in 2nd CH from hook and in each ST across, ch 8, turn — 11 HDC and 8 CH.

Row 2: Work 2-3 SC in 2nd CH from hook and in next 6 CH (spiral made), HDC in BL of each HDC across, Change Color, CH 1, turn — 11 HDC and SC spiral.

Row 3: HDC in BL of each HDC across, CH 8, turn — 11 HDC and 8 CH.

Row 4: Work 2-3 SC in 2nd CH from hook and in next 6 CH (spiral made), HDC in BL of each HDC across, Change Color, CH 1, turn — 11 HDC and SC spiral.

Repeat Rows 3 and 4 until 16 Rows (8 stripes) have been completed, CH 1, turn.

Join end-to-end, SL ST down entire length of hat through both layers, fasten off leaving a 9” tail. Turn hat right-side-out.

Using tail & yarn needle, weave in and out of the topmost HDC stitches evenly around the top of the hat, then cinch the hat closed so that the spirals form a “bouquet”. Fasten off long tail. SC evenly around edge of cuff to hide color changes.

Weave in all ends. Fold up cuff & Enjoy!

Other Suggestions...
  1. Work the entire hat in a solid, variegated, or self-striping yarn.
  2. Work every 2 rows using a different color. Use up your scraps!

CROCHET PATTERN - Excellent Chinstrap Hat

 
This excellent chinstrap hat is intended as a newborn photography prop, and the pattern only comes with newborn instructions.
Materials:  K (6.5 mm) crochet hook, yarn needle, scissors, ¾” button

Yarn:  Approximately 100 yards of bulky/handspun yarn  (Handspun yarns vary; choose one that is 5-6 WPI or 2-3 sts per inch.)

Size:  Newborn only

Gauge:  6 DC and 3.5 rows = 2”

Difficulty:  Very Easy

Stitch Guide:  CH - chain, DC - double crochet, HDC - half double crochet, SC - single crochet, SL ST - slip stitch, ST(S) - stitch(es)

Notes  
  1. The CH-1 or CH-2 at the beginning of each round does NOT count as a stitch.  Join the last stitch to the top of the first stitch.
  2. I recommend using a textured, thick/thin, or fuzzy yarn to hide the seam of the hat.



Start with Magic Ring.  
Round 1:  CH 2, 9 DC in ring, join to top of 1st DC.  [9 DC]
Round 2:  CH 2, 2 DC in each ST around, join.  [18 DC]
Round 3:  CH 2, (1 DC in next ST, 2 DC in next ST) around, join.  [27 DC]
Round 4:  CH 2, (1 DC in next 2 STS, 2 DC in next ST) around, join.  [36 DC]
Rounds 5–7:  CH 2, 1 DC in each ST around, join.  [36 DC]
Round 8:  CH 2, 1 HDC in each DC around, join.  [36 HDC]
Round 9:  CH 1, SC in each HDC around, join, DO NOT fasten off.  [36 SC]

Strap  
CH 18 loosely, HDC in 2nd CH from hook, SC in remaining 16 CHs, SL ST into 1st ST from Round 9.  
Fasten off & weave in ends.
Sew button to the end of the right side of the strap.
Fasten button in between stitches of Round 8 from inside of the hat.  
Hat can be worn with the button on left or right.

Other Suggestions
  • Yarns that work well:  Joann Sensations Angel Hair, Loops & Threads Charisma, Lion Brand Tweed Stripes
  • Add bear ears or a pom pom to the top of the hat.
  • Leave off the chinstrap for a perfect newborn beanie.
