Mia’s Toddler Ponytail Hat

I made a messy bun hat for one of the cutest little girls I know. Toddlers don’t always have enough hair to make a messy bun, so I’m calling it a ponytail hat. Isn’t it cute? Ok, Mia definitely helps with that precious face and gorgeous curls.

I’m sharing my pattern with you for free! You can also add it to your Ravelry queue. Enjoy <3 Hannah

Queen Cupcake Shopkins Hat Crochet Pattern

Crochet Pattern for Queen Cupcake Hat

I received an order for a Queen Cupcake Shopkins hat but wanted something different than what I found online. I also didn’t want a slouch beanie or a bunch of stuffing piled on top of a 7 year old head. This is what I came up with. Cute but still comfortable! I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did!

Skill Level: Intermediate

Material: crochet or yarn needles (I used crochet dude needles which really helped with the small details), small detail scissors, measuring tape

Yarn: *substitute any worsted weight yarn

  • ¼ skein Red Heart Super Saver Turqua*
  • ¼ skein Red Heart Super Saver Perfect Pink*
  • ¼ skein yellow yarn similar to Red Heart Super Saver*

I used what I had on hand for the yellow but I was the same weight and feel as red heart super saver. For the facial features, I used scrap yarn and here is what I know about those:

  • Caron Super Soft Black*
  • Impeccable White (has glitter in it)*
  • Scrap cross stitch thread in a dark brown

Notes: I used invisible joins. You may use any method you are comfortable with.

Abbreviations:
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
fpdc – front post double crochet
MR – magic ring
sp – space
slst – slip stitch
crab stitch – reverse single crochet
picot – ch 3, sc in first ch (3rd from hook)
fsc – foundation single crochet
inv – invisible
*…* around – repeat instructions in between the *’s to the end of the round
clean turn – remove hook from loop, insert hook back into loop from the opposite side so that hook faces direction of work after turning; this is optional but makes it easier for sewing and adding trim to uneven edges

Abbreviations / stitches in between commas go in a single stitch.

Hooks: C, D, F, K

Frosting: Hook F, Blue Yarn, Gauge 4” = R1-R5 (approximately)

I took inspiration from the Divine Hat Pattern found on Ravelry but made adjustments for a frosted cupcake look:

R1: ch 2 (does not count as dc here or throughout), 15 dc in MR, inv join (15)

R2: ch 2, fpdc around every dc around, inv join around first fpdc (15)

R3: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, dc between fpdc’s, *fpdc around fpdc from previous row, dc in between fpdc’s* around, inv join (15 fpdc + 15 dc)

R4: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc, *fpdc around next fpdc, dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc* around, inv join (15 fpdc, 15 dc)

R5-R6: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, 2 dc in first sp between fpdc and dc, *fpdc around next fpdc, 2 dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc* around, inv join (15 fpdc, 30 dc) check gauge

R7-R8: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, 3 dc in first sp between fpdc and dc, *fpdc around next fpdc, 3 dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc* around, inv join (15 fpdc, 45 dc)

R9-R10: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, 4 dc in first sp between fpdc and dc, *fpdc around next fpdc, 4 dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc* around, inv join (15 fpdc, 60 dc)

R11-R12: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, 5 dc in first sp between fpdc and dc, *fpdc around next fpdc, 5 dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc* around, inv join, fasten off with long tail, tighten tail left from MR and weave in. (15 fpdc, 75 dc)

Cupcake Wrapper: Hook K, Yellow Yarn, Gauge 4” = 4.5 rows (without stretch)

R0: ch 15, turn

R2: sc across chain, turn (14)

R3-R46: ch 1, sc in back loop, turn (14) check gauge after row 5

Fasten off with long tail. Sew ends together. Weave in both tails.

Using tail from frosting piece, weave down to row 11. Attach cupcake wrapper to frosting top by sewing 3 rows of wrapper to each shell except for every 5th shell where you will sew 4 rows to the shell. (15 shells x 3=45 rows + 1 row every 5th shell = another 3 rows for a total of 48 rows sewn evenly to 15 shells)

Cupcake Wrapper Bottom Edge: Hook K, Yellow Yarn

R1: Attach yellow yarn to bottom edge, ch 1, sc at the bottom of each row, join (48)

R2: ch 1, crab stitch around, fasten off
