Turkey Hat {FREE PATTERN}

I haven't really had time to write up patterns lately. I've been so busy with pre-K, soccer, karate, and dance, while also trying to get Halloween and turkey hat orders out in time for the holidays. Here's a quicky pattern. It's really very easy if you understand crochet patterns and do not need pictures of each step. If you have any questions, jusk ask. Enjoy!
 
As always, please link back to this post or my Facebook page if you post your hat for sale. Please be sure to credit me for the pattern. Thanks!
 
 
Turkey Hat Pattern by 4Hankins Crochet
To order a turkey hat, click here.
 
Materials: Worsted weight yarn in brown (A), white, black, orange, red, and yellow
H hook unless otherwise noted (4+ size uses G) 
Sizes: premie, 0-6mos, 6-24mos, 2-4, child, adult
Note: Ch 1 does NOT count as a stitch.
 
Each of the curly things is: Chain 21, sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 19. (It will start curling on its own and you can curl it better with your finger.) I did 4 of these for the top. For the one hanging from the nose I did the same thing, but used hdc.
You'll sew the sc curlies to the top of the hat and the hdc curly beside the nose, after the nose is sewn on.
  
Eyes (make 2):
The black center (make 2): Ch 2, work 5sc in the 1st ch. Join w/ slst to the 1st sc.
The white eye: Chain 3, join w/ slst to 1st ch. Ch 1, work 10 hdc in circle. Join with slst to first hdc. Ch 1, work 2 hdc in each around (20), join with slst to first hdc.
Sew the black part to the white part, and when your hat is finished, sew the eyes to the hat.
  
Nose:
Chain 3, join w/ slst to 1st ch. Ch 1, work 5sc in circle, join to first sc with slst. Ch 1, work 2sc in each sc around (10), join. Ch 1, sc in each around (10), join. Ch 1,*sc, 2sc* around (15), join. Ch 1, sc in each around (15).
You'll sew the nose onto the hat under the eyes.

For the braids (I used orange, brown, and yellow), do this twice: Cut 9 pieces of yarn about 30" yarn. Fold it in half and feed the folded part through the bottom of the flap (between the last two hdc2tog). Pull the tails through the loop created. Pull tight to secure and then braid. Knot at the end.

How did you attach you nose? It doesn't look like just the flat circle.

Kristin Hankins said...

Hi Melissa! You just sew the base onto the hat. I try to loop through each stitch. :) (It's a 3 dimensional nose.)

Tamara at Moogly said...

Super cute! Thanks so much for sharing the pattern! I linked to it on my blog this morning - www.mooglyblog.com

Just Call Me A said...

Can anyone please explain what "Join A" means?? I've gotten all the way through and am stuck here. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Kristin Hankins said...

Sorry, I forgot to label the colors. "A" would be your main color yarn, which is brown.

Kristin Hankins said...

Thanks for linking up, Tamara! Cute blog!

Just Call Me A said...

Sorry if this seems dumb but am I fastening off at the end of the first ear flap and then starting on the other side?

Kristin Hankins said...

Yes ma'am. :)

Just Call Me A said...

Thank you very much!! And thank you for sharing this pattern. I looked everywhere for a cute pattern and could not find one!!

Holly said...

So cute! I have a question on the eyes. Do you make the black parts separate from the white part? I don't see anywhere where it says to join the white to the black. And if they are separate, do you just attach the black on top of the white?

Kristin Hankins said...

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

Holly- Yes, attach the black to the white and then attach the eyes to the hat. I will edit now. :)

I just made this for my 7mo old. Thank you so much. I love it!

Is this in British terms? I started making it in US terms and it is way too small...
Can't wait to finish it, though! Super cute!

Kristin Hankins said...

No, this is in US terms. Are you doing the beanie in hdc? What size? It should not be too small. I've had it tested dozens of times. ;)

Nichole said...

Mine turned out too small too. :p My daughter is 12 mths and the 6-24 mths doesn't fit her. Seems like it would fit a 6 mth max..maybe 6-9. I feel like I might be a tight stitcher, but I crochet a lot and the h hook is my most comfortable. I'm considering going to the next size up or going up a couple hook sizes on that one. 6-24 mths seems like a big age group for one hat though. Anyways..the hat is super cute! ^_^ Thanx for the post!

Nichole said...

Nevermine...seems like it might fit my 12 mth ok. :)) Not sure about any bigger than that though..but yay! My little turkey..hehe

Nichole said...

mind* ugh...drives me crazy I can't edit my comments..lol. Sorry. . :p
