Mini Tophat Crochet Video Tutorial

Hello peeps!

I had hoped to have this up earlier in the day, but well. It was a royal pain in the behind to edit, merge and then upload. All 6.9GIG of it :O

Anyway, this is indeed my very first vid tut for a cute mini tophat, crocheted. I hope you all enjoy it. Ill add a typed version  to Ravelry tomorrow so you can download it, and add project pages, because I just love seeing what everyone creates. I'm pretty proud of this, both the pattern and the tutorial. So many possibilities with them too!

Hmm . I am not sure how to insert a video here, so we'll suffice with a photo and a link!

UPDATE: 19th Feb 2012
Here is the written pattern. I am sorry it took so long, I was just disheartened because someone decided to write it down exactly and profit from the pattern as their own on another site. Shame on you.
joins at the end are done into the chain that started the row.


To start : chain 4 and join to form a ring.

Row 1 : chain 3, then work 10 dc's into the ring.

Row 2: ch3, dc in same spot. 2dc in each st around, join

Row 3: ch3, dc in same st. *dc, dc, 2dc same* repeat round, join

Row 4: ch3, dc in each dc round, BACK LOOP ONLY, join

Row 5:-6: dc in each st around, join

Row 7: ch3, dc2tg, *4dc, dc2tg* around, join

Row 8: ch3, dc in each st around, join

Row 9: ch2, 2hd into the front loop of each st around

Row 10: ch2, hdc same, hdc 2 times *2hdc same, hdc, hdc* repeat around, join. Finish off, weave in ends.

Ive decorated these in many ways, bows and ribbons, flowers, chains, go nuts with them. Please tho, do share a picture on Ravelry, I love seeing how people make things!

  3. Because I simply have not had the time to get it done yet. Not to mention someone pretty much copied my tutorial, put it in written form and is selling it as a pattern, doesnt make me feel much like doing it. Sorry guys, Ill get a typed copy when I can.

    1. Unfortunately it happens more then you would think. People will grab whatever they can to make a quick buck. Oh well, I think mine comes out looking nicer anyway.

  6. Thank you for sharing YOUR pattern for this darling hat! I hate that discouraged feeling after someone snitches your idea and takes all the credit. :( It's like a punch to the gut.
