I'm kicking myself for not writing the pattern down. Yes, you heard it. I didn't write the pattern down, I just "winged-it"...
Apparently I DID write this pattern down! What a ninny. :) I wrote it on my ravelry project page. Whoohoo. Here it is:
Cotton Bernat yarn for hat
Caron simply soft for bow
Magic circle 8hdc then increase* by 8 each round (no chain one, no sl st, just use a marker to know when a new round is being made)
After initial 8 hdc in magic circle follow the pattern as follows:
Rnd 1:[ 2 hdc in first stitch, hdc in next] Repeat around. (16 hdc)
Rnd 2: [2hdc, hdc, hdc] Repeat (24 hdc)
Rnd 3: [2hdc, hdc, hdc, hdc] Repeat (32 hdc)
Increase to 63 stitches , then decrease* by 8hdc.
Rnd 9: [hdc, hdc, hdc, hdc, hdc, hdc, hdc2tog] Repeat around (56hdc)
Rnd 10: One row of 1hdc in each stitch. (56 hdc)
Rnd 11: Repeat Rnd 9 (decrease round) 48 hdc
Repeat Rnd 10 until the size you want.
I then did three rows of sc with the rose colored yarn.
Lay hat flat.
Right ear: (stitches are worked around the post of hdc’s)
- Refer to my less than stellar artwork for more clarification. ;)
Working on the right edge of the hat:
First: join yarn to the post of hdc (on picture this is labeled as "1"), ch 1
Second: work 10 dc (double crochets) around the post of hdc of the st directly above that same st that you joined. (Labeled "2")
Now work this row across the 10 dc: sc, sc, sc, dc, dc, dc, dc, sc, sc, sc.
The left ear is worked the same as the right ear WITH THE EXCEPTION that you work in the opposite direction. Take note of this on the drawing.
I made the bow by stitching a rectangle using hdc. I sl st around it; Then using a needle, I weaved the yarn down the middle and cinched it. I wrapped yarn around the middle then attached it to the hat near one of the ears.

The scarf is made with hdc and tassels in red and pink. Very basic.
I can almost feel Olivia's sweet snuggle and hear her praise, "Oh Auntie, I'm so proud of you."
She's so stinkin' cute. :)
