St. Patrick’s Day Top Hats


My Hat (the one that started it all!!!)

NEW PICTURES!!!


I love to make novelty hats, and so I came up with this version of a top hat. The hat on the right (I'm the one in the middle!)is two-toned with buckle and shamrock. See below for pattern change. I made mine in 1 day!
Correction made to "Next 10 rows" and “ Rnds 8-10 of For two-toned hat” should have read to "ch2" not Dc2.
Materials List: Worsted weight yarn. 1 1/2 oz Green, 1/2 oz Black (for two toned hat) Small amounts of yarn for decorations. Size G hook, shamrock, buttons, ribbon, and yellow pipe cleaner for buckle.

Finished Size: One size fits all

Gauge: none

Notes: Pattern for small shamrock I used is from "Wrights.com".
