Party hat for amigurumis

I had made the free pig off of the Lion Brand yarn website for a friend’s birthday (you might need to be logged in to see that link, but joining is totally free and totally worth it for all the free patterns).  It worked up fast and easy, looked great, and I knew my friend – who collects pigs – was going to love it.  Then I showed it to my mom, who asked, “where’s it’s party hat?”

Cue me staring at her for a moment, then mentally slamming my head on a table.  OF COURSE!  IT TOTALLY NEEDED A PARTY HAT!

So last night after work I sat down and came up with a super easy pattern for a little party hat for amigurumis.  Someone somewhere has probably already made and shared a pattern, but if they did I couldn’t find it.  So here’s mine!

Party Hat for Amigurumis

You will need:  size G hook, worsted weight yarn, stitch marker to count rounds
Round 1:  Chain 2. 4 sc in first chain.
Round 2:  2sc in first stitch, 1 sc in next stitch.  Repeat to end of round – 6 stitches
Round 3:  sc in each stitch around
Round 4:  2sc in first stitch, 1 sc in next 2 stitches.  Repeat to end of round – 8 stitches
Round 5:  sc in each stitch around
Round 6:  2sc in first stitch, 1 sc in next 3 stitches.  Repeat to end of round – 10 stitches
Round 7:  sc in each stitch around
Round 8:  2sc in first stitch, 1 sc in next 4 stitches.  Repeat to end of round – 12 stitches
Round 9:  sc in each stitch around
Round 10:  2sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 5 stitches.  Repeat to end of round – 14 stitches
Round 11:  sc in each stitch around

(This is where I ended for my hat, but you can keep on increasing in this manner (or knock off rounds) until you have the size you need)

Ruffles:
(Change color if desired)
Chain 1.
In front loops only – 2sc in next stitch, 3sc in next stitch.  Repeat to end of round, join with slip stitch to first sc of round.  Fasten off.  Decorate with surface crochet, beads, sequins, whatever grabs your fancy.  Add stuffing.  Attach hat to amigurumi.  Party on!
