Mohawk Hat

Tapestry Needle
Any 2 worsted weight yarn

Stitches:

Magic Ring
DC- double crochet
HDC- half double crochet
SC - single crochet
CH- chain
Hdc2tog- half double crochet together
Special Stitch: Loop Stitch: here is a tutorial on how to do this stitch:

Note: Use a stitch marker to marker the beginning of each round.
Double Note: Chain at the beginning of each row counts as a stitch.

Pattern:

Hat:
Using Main Color (A), I Hook, and Magic Ring
Round 1: 6 Dc in the magic ring DO NOT JOIN (Use stitch marker)
Round 2-3: 2 Dc in each stitch around.
Round 4: *1 Dc in first stitch, 2 dc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * around.
Round 5: *1 Dc in each of the next 2 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * around.
Round 6: *1 Dc in each of the next 3 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * around.
Round 7: *1 Dc in each of the next 4 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * around.
You May Continue to Increase Here for a Bigger Hat.
Round 8-18: 1 dc in each stitch around.
Ear Flaps:
Row 19-25: 1 Hdc in each of the next 10 stitches. Chain 2, turn.
Row 26: Hdc2tog, 1 hdc in each of the next 4 stitches. Hdc2tog, 1 hdc in last stitch.
Row 27: 1 Hdc in each stitch across

Finish off and weave in ends.

Row 28: Count out next 20 stitches from the beginning of the ear flap, join and Chain 2. 9 Hdc in each of the next 9 stitches. Chain 2, turn.
Row 29-34: 1 Hdc in each of the next 10 stitches. Chain 2, turn.
Row 35: Same as row 26.
Row 36: Same as row 27.

Finish off and weave in ends.

Mohawk (Loop Stitch):
Depending on the size of the hat, the starting chain may be different. For my hat I did chain 51. What I did is measure from the front to the back of the hat and making a chain accordingly. If you did not increase more during the making of the hat then Chain 51 should work just fine.

Using J hook & Both colors A and B:
Chain 51
Row 1: 1 Loop Stitch in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across. Chain 1, turn.
Row 2: 1 Sc in each stitch across. Chain 1, turn.
Rows 3-6: Repeat rows 1 & 2 twice.

Finish off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Sew on Loop Stitch to the middle of the hat between the ear flaps. Cut the loops.

Braided Tassels:

Take 6 strands of each color, weave into the last row of the each of the ear flaps and braid. Knot at the end.


I understand that this might be a bit confusing so, email me at imanididit@hotmail.com if you have any questions.

*Model for the photos is my brother's punching bag, B.O.B. (Body Opponent Bag).

What This Is

This is where I will be posting all my crochet patterns that I come up with. Lately I haven't been enjoying telling people that the stuff I had crocheted is not my own pattern. This is the only solution.

So bear with me, because I have no idea what I am doing...

Also please do not claim my patterns as your own. Although, you are able to sell the finished product or keep for your self.
