How To Crochet A New Year's Hat: Free Pattern!
Have a cute souvenir from New Year's Eve?
Cool! Did you just get a hat or glasses, or did you get a stuffed animal too? If you got the stuffed animal, chances are that the hat you wore is too big for it! Here's a simple and FREE hat crochet pattern for you!
I used size G hook, with light blue yarn to represent New Year's, but purple, white, and silver will also suffice. Also, the yarn is a heavier weight than what I used for the toy top hat, so I think that's why it looks stiffer. I would suggest a thicker yarn for you if you want the same result. Good luck and have fun! =) Done in single crochet.
This pattern is just as simple as my toy top hat! Easy to do and only in single crochet. Enjoy and have fun!

New Year's Hat Accessories
I single crocheted the year 2012 into the front of the hat for more decoration. I did not, however, write down any instructions as I did it. To be honest, I didn't think it would turn out so well! If you want directions for the numbers, let me know. I'm sure I can go back and count for you.
That is tin foil sticking out of the top of the hat. I did not have any shiny streamers, colored tinsel, or glittery anything, so I cut strips of tin foil, twisted them together on one end, and then stuck it through the top of the hat. A simple stitch or two will keep it in place, or even a strategically placed staple will do the same. =)
