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
