Do not join rounds. Mark the beginning of each round.

Hat:
White yarn

1. Using magic circle, ch 2 then work 8 sc into ring. Tighten.
2. 2 hdc in each sc around. (16)
3. *hdc in next hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc; repeat from * 7 more times (24)
4. *hdc in next  2hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc; repeat from * 7 more times (32)
5. *hdc in next 3 hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc; repeat from * 7 more times (40)
6. *hdc in next 4 hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc; repeat from * 7 more times (48)

Switch to gold yarn

7. *hdc in next 5 hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc; repeat from * 7 more times (56)
8. *hdc in next 6 hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc; repeat from * 7 more times (64)
9. *hdc in next 7 hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc; repeat from * 7 more times (72)

Rounds 10-20   hdc in each hdc around (be sure to mark rounds) (72)

Switch to gray yarn

21. hdc in each hdc around, sl st to join gray. Cut yarn and weave in ends.

Handle:
Ch 24, turn, sc in each ch. Ch 2, hdc in each sc. Ch  2, hdc in each hdc. Ch 2, hdc in each hdc.

Fold the handle lengthwise and sew together. Sew it to side of hat as shown in photo.

Foam down side of hat: Use white. Sew a few rows back and forth (this yarn is very forgiving as it is so fluffy-just cover up the gold). Or you could crochet it on to the foam from the front of the hat (whichever is easiest for you).

NOTES: The white yarn is so fluffy that it is difficult to see the stitches (I had to tear it out and start over). I am sure this pattern is forgiving enough that if that white isn't exact it won't be a problem. Have fun with it!

  1. I used Red Heart Buttercup white yarn for the foam and Red Heart Supersaver gold yarn for the beer.

    I used a size H/8-5.00 mm crochet hook.

    This is the first pattern I have published, enjoy!

  3. Hi :) LOVE this hat. I am wondering if I can make these to sell and I would certainly link back to you as the designer if you allow that.

    1. Please feel free to make hats for your personal use or gifts.

      Do not sell the pattern and do not sell the hats online (feel free to sell them at local craft fairs-except not in upstate NY as I plan to sell them in that location).

    2. I would love to buy one of these hats already made. Is it possible to buy one from you and have you ship it to me in California?

  4. Would it be possible to explain in more detail how to do the foam?
    Thank You
