Jordan’s Pink Angels Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Notes
Pink Yarn for Beanie Hat and I used it for J as seen in picture above- (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will do)
Red yarn for heart
White Yarn for angel wings
“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)
sctog – single crochet two st together
dc – double crochet
hdc – half double crochet
*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.
Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice. Once finished put it to the side until you are ready to attach applique.
Heart : Using Red (or other color you want for heart) yarn with “J” crochet hook
The heart I made by this tutorial for Medium sized heart (2 rounds) by HeloiseV Crochet.
(Note: Make sure you leave an extra long tail at the end. This will be used in finishing steps below.)
Angel Wings (Make 2) : Using white yarn with “J” crochet hook
Round 1: Chain 9. Sc in second chain from hook and continue making one sc per chain until end. Ch 2 and turn. (8 sc)
Round 2: For this row, dc once in first two st, hdc in next 3 st, sc in next st and sctog last two st. Ch 1 and turn. (7 st total).
Round 3: For this row, sc in first two st, hdc in next 3 st, dc in last two st. Ch 3 and turn. (7 st total)
Round 4: Sl st in first st, *ch 3 then sl st in next st* repeat * until at end of starting corner. Ch 1 and rotate piece so you are working at back end of Round 1.
Round 5: (Note: This is an optional round. I like the more finished look with my wings.) Sc in first sc and each sc across (8 sc). Pull through.
(Tip: Make sure you leave an extra long tail at the end. This will be used in finishing steps below.)
Letter J or whatever letter you choose (in matching main color to beanie base – in my case hot pink). For my “J” I just single crocheted a chain the approximate length I wanted to make the J on the heart. For this one shown in pictures it was a chain of 9.
Then just use your tapestry (large eye yarn) needle to secure it in the finished place on top of the heart. This is an optional step that you can exclude from your project if so desired.
To attach the wings to the heart, overlap them slightly behind heart before using needle to pull through and make a few stitches with your starting tail. It doesn’t have to be much or long as it is just to keep them about where you want them to attach to hat.
Tip: If your wings seem to be too tall or fat, pull on outermost corner, diagonally. This will stretch out the wings making them shorter and longer.
Now place your appliques on top of the beanie where you want them to be on the finished project.
Tip: If you want to, you can use clothing pins or safety pins to hold them in place during your stitching. I tend to pin mine in place with some straight pins on to my Styrofoam model head. I’m a bit of a planner..
Taking your end tail from one wing, work on sewing a simple stitch around the perimeter of the wing through the beanie with your tapestry needle. Pull end through and finish off.
Using tail end from other wing duplicate what is done in first wing but in a mirror image of the location of the first one with tapestry needle. This is where using those pins can come in handy so they don’t move about on you. 😉 Pull end through and finish off.
Taking the last end tail hanging from your applique, for the heart, thread tapestry needle and secure heart in place on to beanie.
Just finish off and cut off extra lengths. You are ready to go!
