Children have undeniably the cutest hairstyles out there. But when you combine an adorable kid with an even cuter handmade hat, you hit the jackpot! Try to make this cabbage patch croquet hat, decorated with pig tails and bright pink removable bows. Make sure you have these materials and follow the instructions:
• 6mm crochet hook;
• some ribbon;
• a pair of scissors;
• a bunch of safety pins;
First, fashion a basic beanie as the base for the cabbage patch croquet hat. Then, make the bangs, by using a loop stitch for three rows on the beanie’s bottom. Now the hat is basically finished. Move on to the pigtails. Cut 16”-long pieces of yarn. You will need 9 pieces for each braid. Half-fold the pieces and make a knot in the center. Divide the yarn into threes. Start the braiding process, using a small piece of yarn in order to tie off the bottom of the braid. Do the same for each of the braids. Finish by stitching them to the beanie. Make sure they are positioned evenly. After this, add a ribbon bow atop each of the pigtails. Done!
