Nothing puts me in the mood to crochet more than cooler temperatures. Fall is my favorite season and I’m so excited it is finally here! One of the best parts of fall is that it is apple season. To celebrate fall (and a friend’s new baby) I had to make an apple hat from my Versatile Earflap Hat Pattern, of course.
To make an apple hat of your own, simply follow the instructions in my pattern available here, making the entire hat in red. Then follow the instructions below to make a stem and a leaf. Sew the stem and leaf to the top of the hat and add braids to the earflaps. Now you have a sweet apple hat too!
Ch 12. Dc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, sc in next 2 ch, sl st in next 6 ch. Fasten off leaving a long tail to sew the stem to the hat.
Ch 10. Sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, htr (see below) in next 3 ch, dc in next ch, hdc in next ch, sc in last ch. Ch 2, sl st in 2nd ch from hook. Working along the other side of the chain, sc in next ch, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, htr in next 3 ch, dc in next ch, hdc in next ch, sc in last ch. Fasten off leaving a long tail to sew the leaf to the hat.
Htr (half treble crochet): Yarn over 2 times, insert hook in stitch and draw up a loop (4 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 3 loops (1 loop left on hook).
