How could I not love Yoshi from Super Mario Brothers?  I think he is adorable so I thought I would try to make him into a crochet hat for my nephews to go with the Mario and Luigi beanie hats I made them previously.  You can see them here. This was a fun project to make for them and I fell in love with the hat by the time it was finished. I have a feeling I will have to make more or the three of them will fight over who can wear Yoshi. :)

Make sure you leave a long enough tail to secure your spike to the crocheted hat when finished!
Leave an extra long tail in order to sew this on very securely so they don’t flop around.

Finishing off:

Nose assembly:
Using your tail left on one of the nostrils and your yarn needle, sew nostril in place on front of the Nose/ Snout front piece. Once secure, pull yarn to inside of snout piece and fasten off.  Repeat process with second nostril. Next use the tail left for your smile chain and needle to sew the smile in place on Nose/Snout front piece in desired location. You can reference my pictures to see where I placed my own.  Once you have it fully sewn in place, pull yarn to inside and fasten off. Now you are going to attach the nose back to nose/snout front piece by lining the nose back up to the opening on the back of the nose / snout.  You want to stop about 2/3 of the way around to stuff with your fiberfill stuffing as you sew it around. Once you have it assembled, use leftover tail from assembled nose/snout to sew in place on front of your beanie hat. Once it is secured, pull yarn to the inside of the beanie and fasten off.

Next you want to use the tail left on on of the white cheek areas and yarn needle to sew white cheek areas in place on each side of attached snout lining up white white contrast trim.  Once in place, pull yarn to inside of beanie hat and finish off.

Eye assembly:
Taking tail on one of the eye pupils, sew pupil directly on to eye white area in desired location. Once the pupil is attached, pull yarn to back of eye before fastening off. Repeat for second pupil.
Now you take the assembled eyes and place them  just above the nose/snout.You can see my pictures to see how I placed mine. I put mine right against the top of the nose/snout.  You will use the white yarn tail left on eye whites with your yarn needle to sew them in to place. Once your eyes are secure, pull yarn to inside of the Yoshi hat and fasten off.

The last step is to attach Yoshi’s red spikes to center of back of the head near the bottom (see pictures for placement of mine) to represent the spikes that run down his back.  To attach them, take your yarn needle and using a tail left on one of the spikes, sew it into desired place.  Once you have it sewn in place, pull yarn to inside of hat before fastening off. Repeat this process for the second spike.
Now take a look over your assembled hat, checking for any loose ends or tails you did not fasten off yet. If you find any go ahead do so now.  All done!

Here are a few of the pictures I took to show how this Yoshi hat looks from different directions when completed:

Chococat the Black Cat Character Hat Crochet Pattern

I made up this crochet pattern for my future stepdaughter.  This is Chococat from Hello Kitty’s world, Sanrio.  I think this kitty translated pretty well to crochet. I almost didn’t want to let this black cat hat go.. My friends all raved over how it turned out and I’ve had several requests to make additional copies for them so I will take that as a good sign.  It’s a fun but quick crochet project that can be done in one afternoon.  Learn more about the character Chococat here.

You can reference my pictures as to where I placed them on my own Chococat hat. Once sewn on, pull yarn to inside of hat and finish off.  Repeat this process for the second eye.
Using the tail left behind on one of the cat ears, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure the ear to the side top area of the beanie in desired location near top of beanie hat. You can see my pictures for where I placed my own. Once you have secured it in place, pull your yarn in to the inside of the beanie before finishing off extra length.  Repeat this process for the second ear.
Now check over your crochet project for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.

Captain America Superhero Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Profile Picture

Who is Captain America?  If you are a superhero fan or have one in your life then you more than likely know something about good old Captain.  He has been around since the early 1940’s thanks to Marvel comics.  You can learn more about him here. This is a fun and quick project to make for a last minute gift or costume.  The A can be a bit tricky for beginners but I tried to make it as clear as possible.  I would recommend for advanced beginner and up but most should be able to do.  This is another one of the hats in my superhero beanie hat collection that I designed and crocheted for my nephews to wear. :)

“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern:
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet 
hdc – half double crochet

Captain America Superhero Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Front View

Pattern Instructions:
*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my Easy Peasy Youth Sized (Age 3-10 years old) Double Crochet Beanie  Hat Pattern which you can find  here as a foundation for the project.  Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size you want for your project.

Hat Base:

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice

Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start customizing your own Captain America Superhero hat for the superhero fan in your life. :)

Letter A Logo:  Using White yarn
Row 1: Start off with a chain of  20.  Place 2 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 hdc in the next 6 ch, 3 hdc in next st, 1 hdc in next 2 ch, 3 hdc in following st, 1 hdc in next 6 st, and 2 hdc in last st.  (24 st total)
Row 2:  Ch 1 and rotate so you will be working up the unworked side of the chain. Work 1 sl st into side of last hdc and into first ch (where your hdc was worked from) before placing 1 sl st in each of the next 3 st. In next st, sl st before making a ch of 6, place 1 hdc in the 3rd ch from hook and in each of the next 3 ch. Sl st into the next ch back on A body.  (You should now have a little strap across that will hook into A shape when you sew it on in one piece.) Sl st in next 12 st.  Rotate your A so you will now be working on the outside perimeter. Sl st in side of hdc st and it top of 1st hdc on this side of the A.  Place 1 sl st in the rest of the st around until you reach your 1st sl st in Row 2. Sl st in to the first st.
Leave an extra long yarn tail before cutting it and pulling through. You will need this tail to sew your A logo securely in place during finishing step.

This size logo will work on toddler, teen, women’s and men’s size hats.  For newborn to 12 month size hats, switch to sc and remove 4 ch from starting ch.  This will allow you to remove 2 sc on each length of the A. Just make sure you remove the same amount on each side of the A or it will end up a bit lopsided.

Finishing off:
Using the tail left on the assembled large letter “A” logo from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle , sew the piece in the desired location on the front of the hat.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.) This is when you will also sew your strap from the inside of the A logo into position.  I like to do that all in one step for less work. 😉  Once secure, pull yarn to the inside of your beanie hat before fastening off.
Check for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any. Then you are all done.

Here are some pictures to show how this Captain America inspired beanie hat looks worn from different directions once finished:

White Logo Circle: using white yarn

For sizes 6 to 12 months, leave off Round 4.
For sizes newborn to 6 months, leave off Round 3 and 4.

Green Lantern Logo: using Green yarn 
This part of the Logo I made into three simple pieces and just sewed them in place on the logo circle before attaching to hat.

For Circle part of Logo: using Green yarn
Round 1: Starting with beginning chain that will be formed into an open circle, ch 12, then sl st in to the last ch from the hook making sure it is not twisted. You should now have your open circle base.
Round 2:  Ch 12 before placing 16 hdc in to the formed circle. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (16 hdc)
Leave  a tail long enough to secure the assembled logo to the beanie hat during assembly process.

Green Lantern Superhero Logo Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Closeup

Finishing off:
Before attaching anything to the hat directly we are going to put together the logo in one piece so that when we fasten off any undesirable ends are hidden between logo circle and beanie. :)
Taking the tail left on the green circle part of logo, center it on your white logo circle then use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure it in place.  Once secure pull the yarn through to the back before fastening off.
Next take the tail from one of the green logo stripes and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in place. One should be on the top and the other on the bottom in parallel lines to each other as seen in logo picture and my hat pictures.  As before, once secure, pull yarn to back and fasten off.  Repeat this process for the second stripe.  Once fastened off you should only have one yarn tail left on your assembled logo, a long white one.
Using the tail left on the assembled logo from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle , sew the piece onto the desired place on the front of the hat.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.)
Check for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any. Then you are all done.

Okay a lot of geek, but proud of it. 😀  I love smiley faces or emoticons and I am mildly obsessed with vampires so it seemed like a good fit to smash them together in one fun hat.  I liked how this turned out so well I made it my official blood draw hat to wear when getting my bloodwork, which happens way too much with my health issues but how can you not smile when you are wearing this hat?

Cinnamoroll Cinnamon the Puppy Character Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern laying flat profile pattern view

This crochet pattern was inspired by this cute picture of Cinnamoroll the Puppy with the contrast cinnamon colored lines. Even though he is an all white puppy I wanted to see how he would turn out with a bit of cinnamon. :)  So thus this hat was created.  He is a Hello Kitty world friend and adorable of course.  I think he translated pretty well to crochet. Now I have to make an all white true version of him soon!

Round 17: Place one finished Ear Front in front of the Ear Back you are working on. Attach your “cinnamon” yarn to a st at one of the top corners of ears with a sl st before ch 1, then work a round of  1 sc around the perimeter through both pieces until you reach the other top corner.

Taking the tail from one of your blush circles and Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle, sew them in place in desired location on face.  Pull yarn to the inside of your hat when finished sewing before fastening off end.  Repeat this process for the second blush circle.
Next you want to use the tail from one eye and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew one eye in to the proper place. You can reference my pictures as to where I placed them on my own Cinnamoroll hat. Once sewn on, pull yarn to inside of hat and finish off.  Repeat this process for the second eye.
Using the tail left behind on one of the floppy puppy ears, use yourBlunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure the ear to the side top area of the beanie in desired location with the contrast on hat. You can see my pictures for where I placed my own. If you want longer hanging ears place it lower on the hat or higher placement for shorter length of ears hanging down. Once you have it in place, pull your yarn in to the inside of the beanie before finishing off extra length.  Repeat this process for the second ear.
Now check over your crochet project for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.

Pattern Instructions:
*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size of the free pattern you want for your project.

Hat Base: in main color yarn
Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice

Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start on making your Keroppi the Frog hat!

 Note: If you are going to do this in newborn / infant/ up to 1 year old sizes, switch to a G hook for the features instead of the J to scale them down in size or eliminate one increase row from each feature worked in the round.

Eyes back piece (Make 2):  in white yarn (optional)

Note:  This is an optional step but I do recommend doing this step as it keeps your stuffing in the snout and now falling through the stitches when the hat is worn since they stretch to conform to head.

Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and in each of the following 9 st. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Pull yarn through and fasten off.  Put to side until needed in eye assembly.
Repeat for second eye.

Eyes (Make 2): Using white yarn
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and in each of the following 9 st. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in first st and in each of the following 19 st. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Before you cut your yarn make sure you leave a tail long enough sew your eyes on to your beanie hat and attach the eyes back if you choose to do this optional step.
Repeat for second eye.

Eye Pupil (Make 2): using black yarn
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing  8 dc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (8 dc)
Cut your yarn making sure you leave a tail long enough  to sew the eye pupils on to Keroppi’s eyes.
Repeat for second eye.

Blush Circles (Make 2): using pink yarn
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing  10 dc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (10 dc)
Make sure you leave a tail long enough sew the blush circle in place on to your beanie hat.
Repeat for second blush circle.

Smile: Using black yarn
Make 1 chain of  9 ch and leave tail to sew this chain into  a v shaped smile like in pictures.

Finishing off:
Since I like to start adding my features from the bottom up we will start with Keroppi’s smile. I find that by working from bottom up you get a better idea of how much space you have during the process.  Otherwise you may find yourself scrunching up features at the bottom if you haven’t left enough space in your process. By working upwards you always have extra room as you can just move the next feature up a little higher if need be.You are now going to use this the tail left for the smile chain from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the main smile piece into the desired place on the hat in a “v” shape.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.) Once you have secured it into place, bring the yarn into the inside of the beanie hat and finish off.
Next we will work on attaching the pink blush circles. These should be located on each side of smile on face near bottom of where you plan to attach the eyes.  Using the tail on one circle and needle secure Keroppi’s blush circle in place on to the beanie hat.  Pull yarn in to the inside of beanie once sewn on and fasten off. Repeat with second blush circle.
Next we will work on his eyes.  Take the yarn tail left from one assembled eye and sew it into place on to the hat.   Once it’s sewn on, pull yarn in to the inside of the hat before finishing off. Repeat for second eye.
Check for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any. Then you are all done. :)  You have one easy but fun Keroppi hat to wear. I’m completely in love with this little hat and will have to make one of my own to keep since this one is headed to an auction to benefit a school. I would love to see your version if you make one, just drop me a link. :)

Here are some of the pictures I took to show how it looks worn and from different directions when completed:

Starting off we are going to put a simple contrast color band to the bottom of the hat.  For this sl st your lighter brown yarn (the same to be used for face area part) to a st on the last round. Ch 1, then work 1 sc in each st around, sl st to top of first st in round before finishing off.

Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start on making your own Curious George hat for reading time, costume or even everyday fun. This one is for my Mom to wear in her classroom and it has been a giant hit with the students. Put it to the side until you are ready to finish off the hat and assemble pieces.

Face Area:

Round 1:  With your contrast lighter brown yarn, ch 15. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each of following 15 ch. Ch 1 and turn. The Ch 1 does not count as a st through this part of pattern. (15 sc)
Round 2:  Place 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next 13 st and 2 sc in last st of round. Ch 1 and turn. (17 sc)
Round 3:  Place 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next 15 st and 2 sc in last st of round. Ch 1 and turn. (19 sc)
Round 4-7:  Place 1 sc in each st across. Ch 1 and turn. (19 sc)
Round 8:  Sctog first two st together, 1 sc in next 15 st and sctog last 2 st of round. Ch 1 and turn. (17 sc)
Round 9:  Sctog first two st together, 1 sc in next 13 st and sctog last 2 st of round. Ch 1 and turn. (15 sc)
Round 10:  Sctog first two st together, 1 sc in next 11 st and sctog last 2 st of round. Ch 1 and turn. (13 sc)
Round 11:  Sctog first two st together, 1 sc in next 9 st and sctog last 2 st of round. Ch 1 and turn. (11 sc)
Round 12:  Sctog first two st together, 1 sc in next 7 st and sctog last 2 st of round. Ch 1 and turn. (9 sc)
Round 13-14:  Place 1 sc in each st across. Ch 1 and turn. (9 sc)
Round 15:  Place 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next 7 st and 2 sc in last st of round. Ch 1 and turn. (11 sc)
Round 16:  Sctog first two st, sc in next 2 st, sl st in each of the next 3 st, sc in next 2 st, sctog last 2 st in round. Ch 1 and turn.  (6 sc)
Round 17:  Sctog first two st, sc in next 2 st, sctog last 2 st. Ch 1 and turn. (4 sc)
Round 18: Work a round of sc around the perimeter of the face area to give it a more well defined and polished look. Sl st in center st between eye indent on top of face area.
Cut yarn leaving a long enough tail to be able to securely sew on your face area on to the beanie hat.  Put face area aside until you are ready to assemble hat.

From now on you will be using the “H” hook to complete your crocheted features.

Eye Whites (Make 2):

Round 1: In magic circle, ch 1 before placing 6 sc in circle.  Pull circle closed and sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. Note: The starting 1 ch in all sc rounds do not count as a stitch. They are used to hide seams better. (6 sc)
Round 2:  Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in first st and each of the following 5 st around. Sl st to top of 1st st in round. (12 sc)
Cut yarn leaving a long enough tail to sew eyes on to face area during assembly time.  I tend to judge about 2 to 2 1/2 times the perimeter of what I want to attach to my hats.  Put eye whites to the side until ready to assemble.

Eye Pupils (Make 2): Use black yarn

Round 1:  In magic circle, ch 1 before placing 4 sc. Pull circle closed and sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (4 sc)
Cut yarn leaving a long enough tail to secure the pupils on to the eye whites during assembly. Put to the side until ready for assembly.

Upper liner to eyes (Make 2): Use black yarn

With black yarn, ch 5. Pull yarn through leaving a long enough tail to sew on with your large blunt eye tapestry / yarn needle before cutting yarn. Put to side until assembly.

Ear Front (Make 2): Use lighter brown contrast yarn for ear fronts

Round 1:   In magic circle, ch 1 before placing 6 sc in circle.  Pull circle closed and sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. Note: The starting 1 ch in all sc rounds do not count as a stitch. They are used to hide seams better. (6 sc)
Round 2:  Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in first st and each of the following 5 st around. Sl st to top of 1st st in round. (12 sc)
Round 3:   Ch 1 before putting 2 sc in first st, *1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next*  Repeat * until you have 2 st left. Sl st in last 2 st. (15 sc)
Round 4:  Ch 1 before putting 2 sc in first st, *1 sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next*  Repeat * until you have 3 st left. Sl st in last 3 st. (18 sc)
Cut yarn, pull through and finish off. No tail needed for ear fronts in assembly so cut off any additional length after finishing off.

Ear Back (Make 2): Use lighter brown contrast yarn for ear backs

Rounds 1-4: Do the same as you just did on ear fronts but do not cut yarn or finish off. Ch 1 and turn.
Round 5-6:  Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in first st and following 17 st. Ch 1 and turn. (18 sc)
Pull yarn through leaving a long enough tail to secure ear to ear front and then sew on to your Curious George crochet hat.

Nose: Use black yarn for nose

Ch 8 before pulling through yarn.  Cut yarn leaving a long enough tail to secure your smile on to George’s face area.

Mouth:  This will require three pieces chain stitches with tails made with the black yarn to sew them in place on the face area.

Main smile piece – With black yarn, ch 15 before pulling through yarn.  Cut yarn leaving a long enough tail to secure your smile on to George’s face area.

Smile sides (Make 2) – With the black yarn, ch 6 before cutting off yarn leaving a long enough tail to sew your smile sides on to the face of Curious George.

Assembly:

A little tip- When sewing on features for a beanie hat, I work from the bottom up.  That way you can judge your space better and don’t end up with a bunch of features squished in the bottom if you run out of room.

I use straight pins to pin my features in place to plan their positions but that is not necessary. You can eyeball it.

Smile assembly:  You are now going to work on the face area starting at the bottom and working up.  Using your blunt eye yarn needle and tail from main smile piece, sew the smile in a curve -like a smile ).  Make sure you leave enough room to attach the sides of the smile next.  Use the ch 8 for the nose, sew nose into place on the face area above the smile in an upside down frowny face like curve. (see pictures below for clarification on this positioning)

Eye assembly: Take the tail from one black eye pupil and use your yarn needle to sew it in place near the bottom of an eye white, not center to get George’s look.  Once attached to eye white, pull yarn through to back and finish off.
Now take the tail from the eye liner ch 5 to sew it along the top rim of eye.  Pull yarn through to back and finish off.
Now that pupil and eye liner have been assembled to an eye, use your needle and tail left on the eye white to securely sew your eye in to desired position onto the face area. (See pictures below to see my placement) Pull yarn to the back of face area before finishing off and cutting off any extra length.
Repeat this process for the second eye.

Your Face Area should now be complete and ready to attach! Line it up on the beanie hat in the position you would like it on the front of your beanie hat. I always put my seam from my crocheted beanie hats to the back of the project but you could use the face area to cover most of seam on front if you choose to do so.    Take your yarn needle and use the tail left previously on face area  to sew it on to the Curious George hat.  Once you have it secured, pull yarn through to inside of hat before finishing off and cutting off any additional tail length if necessary.

Ear assembly:  Place ear front in front of ear back.  Using your large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle and the tail you left on ear back to sew both together all around ear.  Your yarn should now be at back in corner of ear bottom.   Repeat process for second ear.  Then using needle sew the ears into place in the desired location on side of beanie hat.  You can use my pictures below to see where I placed my own.  Cut yarn and finish off.

All done. You now have one completed Curious George crocheted beanie hat ready for story time, costumes or just everyday wearing fun.   You don’t have to be a kid to appreciate how cute this little monkey translates in crochet.  He makes me smile. 😀

Here are some pictures to show how the Curious George story time hat looks worn from different directions when crocheting is completed:

  Gavin's DinoRAWR Spiked Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern

This crochet pattern was designed in honor of and for a little Juvenile Arthritis hero of mine, Gavin.  He is a big dinosaur fan so I figured I would make something special for him.  It turned out to be a pretty easy and quick way to customize a hat for the dinosaur fan in your life. Give is a try. Happy crafting!

Gavin’s DinoRAWR Spiked Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:

Main Colored Yarn for Beanie Hat
(I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will be fine)
Contrast yarn for bottom contrast trim and dinosaur spikes
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern:

ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet 

Pattern Instructions:

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my Easy Peasy  Pre-Teen / Teen / Women Double Crochet Beanie Pattern which you can find here as a foundation for the project.  Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size you want for your project.

Hat Base:

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice
Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to get started on making this a dinoRAWR spiked hat. :)
Taking contrast color yarn, attach to bottom of last round of beanie with a sl st. Ch 1 and work 1 sc in to each st around. Sl st to top of first st in round.
Cut yarn and fasten off.

If you like a wider contrast band or want to make the color contrast pop more, try adding an additional row of sc to the bottom. I sometimes do this when I feel a project needs it but it’s not necessary, just my personal preference. :) 

Dinosaur Spikes (Make 4):
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before making 8 dc into circle. Sl st to top of first st in round.  (8 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2.  Place 3 dc in first st, 1 dc in each of the next 3 st, 3 dc in next st and 1 dc in last st. Sl st to top of first st in round. (12 dc)
Round 3:  Ch 2. 1 dc in 1st, 3 dc in following st, 1 dc in each of the next 5 st, 3 dc in next st, 1 dc in each of last 4 st.  Sl st to top of first st in round. (16 dc)
Round 4: Ch 3. 1 dc in first 2 st, 1 dc in each of the following 7 st, 3 dc in next st, 1 dc in each of last 5 st.  Sl st to top of first st in round. (20 dc)
Round 5:  Sl st in first two st. Fold your spike in half so that you are now working in a corner. Ch 1 before placing 1 sc through both st lined up in fold and in each to the end. (10 sc)
Make sure you leave a long enough tail to secure your spike to the crocheted hat when finished!
Cut yarn and pull through.  Put to side until finished with all 4 spikes (or desired amount if you want more or less)

Finishing off:

At this point you should have your finished crocheted beanie hat base and your finished dinosaur spikes.  For this hat I arranged them evenly from front forehead to back of head by pinning mine in place first with straight pins to make sure placement was okay.  Yes I have a little bit of OCD with my crocheting.  This is not necessary but it’s a good idea to mark your starting or ending points with pins, stitch markers or even a few short scraps of yarn.

Taking your large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle, use tails on spikes to sew them directly on to the beanie hat.  I just did a basic in and out stitch to weave it in securely.  Pull yarn through to inside of hat after spike is attached, perform a double knot (where you pass the yarn through the loop twice before pulling tightly to close). You can do one or two additional knots if you prefer, I often do but it’s because I’m always paranoid of unraveling. I haven’t had that happen since using the double knots though so it will do the job well. :)

One you have all the spikes attached where you want them, fasten off any loose ends, cut additional yarn, weave in and you are all done.

Here are some pictures to show how this hat looks worn and from different angles:
