So, despite it being November, I am having to prepare for Christmas. As part of little stocking gifts, I have accumulated some delicious Terry’s Chocolate Oranges. Inspired by various blog posts and Ravelry, I designed my own covers for the little oranges: cute little pompom hats!
These little beauties are great for using up scrap yarn and can be made within about 20-30mins.
FPhdc: hdc around the front of the post of the previous round.
BPhdc: hdc around the back of the post of the previous round.
R1: magic ring, ch2, 11 hdc into ring (12), join with ss
R2: 2 hdc in each stitch, join with ss (24)
R3: *2hdc in first stitch, hdc in next stitch. Repeat from *. Join with ss. (36)
R4-5: hdc in each stitch around. Join with ss (36)
R6: *10 hdc, 2hdctog, repeat from *, join with ss (33)
R7: *9hdc, 2hdctog, repeat from *, join with ss (30)
R8: *8hdc, 2hdctog, repeat from *, join with ss (27)
R9: hdc in each stitch around. Join with ss (27)
R10-11: *FPhdc, BPhdc* repeat around finishing with a FPhdc. Join with ss. Make sure the FPhdc and BPhdc stitches line up to create the ridges.
Fasten off and weave in ends. Make a pompom and sew to top off hat.
(Whilst you are welcome to make and sell items made from this pattern, please credit me for the pattern.)
And there you have it! If you do make your own, please post a picture. It would be lovely to see all the different little hats other people are making!
