FREE Pokemon Pikachu Inspired Hat Crochet Pattern

Pokemon Inspired Pikachu Hat (Cont.)

crown

Again, this particular pattern is for 22” circumference which will measure (top) approx 7” depending on the tension of your stitches) Your increases end after you’ve reached this measurement, or the one you need for your size, then you will start to grow your beanie towards the ears. I hope that makes sense.

Starting with the beanie, the hat itself (Yellow yarn):

  1. mc, ch3, dc 11 stitches into the loop, join (12)
  2. ch3, dc in same st as ch, inc in remaining stitches around, join (24)
  3. ch3, dc in same st, *dc in next st, inc in next*, repeat, join (36)
  4. ch3, dc in same st, *dc in nxt 2 st, inc in next*, repeat, join (48)
  5. ch3, dc in same st, *dc in nxt 3 st, inc in next*, repeat, join (60)
  6. ch3, dc in same st, *dc in nxt 4 st, inc in next*, repeat, join (72)

*NOTE* after measuring the circumference of the head and using the formula noted above the start of the pattern, you will know if you need to make your hat smaller or larger than the pattern I have posted. If you need to make it smaller, you will most likely eliminate 1 or 2 of the rows listed above, if you need to make it larger, you will add another increase row, or however many rows necessary. If adding on, your next row would be (ch3, dc in same st, *dc in nxt 5 st, inc in nxt*, repeat, join (84)), and so on. Measure frequently to ensure proper sizing.

Continuing from row 7 above:

Rows 7 – 17:

Ch3, dc in next st & ea of the following stitches around, join (72) 

(You want the length of the hat to end just above the ears. The flaps will cover the ears, so make adjustments to height as necessary by either adding or subtracting rows & by using the sizing chart above). 

Row 18:

Ch1, work either 1 sc or slip stitch into each stitch around, FO.

Ear Flaps (Make 2)

The ear flaps are made with the Tunisian stitch. There is a video tutorial for this stitch if you are not familiar with it. If for any reason you are struggling with this stitch, I am including an alternate pattern just below the Tunisian that will also work.

With yellow yarn using size I Tunisian hook. If all you have is a smaller or larger size Tunisian hook, simply adjust the number of stitches. Your final measurements on the ear flaps should be approximately 5” wide x 5” long. 

  1. Ch17, work the Tunisian crochet stitch for approximately 16-18 rows or until the above noted measurements are met.
  2. at final Tunisian stitch row, work a sl stitch into every stitch around entire square, FO. 

*Alternate method for ear flaps* 

  1. Ch 17, sc into 2nd chain from hook & every stitch after to end, turn (16)
  2. Ch1, sc in ea st to end, turn, ch1 & repeat until piece measures 5×5 approx. 

I don’t have a very good way at directing, in writing, how to perform the Tunisian stitch, so I have created the video to better explain. If you are unfamiliar or do not have internet access I CAN do my best at trying to walk you through it via our facebook page if you absolutely want to try but can’t watch the video, but it might not be pretty! Lol =)
