Parkers Purple Monster Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern

This hat was designed for one of amazing Juvenile Arthritis kid heroes of mine named Parker. Parker just loves the color Purple so I had to make him up his own special purple hat to wear during the Arthritis Foundation walk we had last month.  I even gave him some arthritis awareness blue colored horns on top of his head to go with the day’s activities. :)

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 free Easy Peas Pre-Teen / Teen / Women Double Crochet Beanie Pattern, which you can find  here as a foundation for the projectWant it in another size? 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 purple (or your own desired color)
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 own cool purple monster hat. :)

Tooth: using white yarn
Round 1:  Ch 3 before placing 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and place 1 sc next st. Ch 1 and turn. (2 sc)
Round 2: Place 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in next. Ch 1 and turn. ( 2 sc)
Round 3: Place 1 sc in 2nd st leaving 1st st unworked. Sl st back in to same st. Continuing counter clockwise around the tooth, work 1 sl st in each st around to give it a more defined edge, sl st back in to 1st st in round when you reach it.
Leave a long enough tail to be able to sew your tooth in place on your beanie hat during assembly. Cut yarn, pull tail through and place to side until needed during assembly.

This feature will work well on toddler to adult male sized hats as pattern calls for.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, do the following instead of above steps:
Round 1:  Ch 3 before placing 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and place 1 sc next st. Ch 2 and turn. (2 sc)
Round 2: Place 1 sc in 2nd st leaving 1st st unworked. Sl st back in to same st. Continuing counter clockwise around the tooth, work 1 sl st in each st around to give it a more defined edge, sl st back in to 1st st in round when you reach it.

Main smile: using black yarn
Make a ch of 20 to 22 depending on how loose of a chain you create.  Make sure you leave a long enough tail to be able to secure your smile in place on the beanie hat during finishing off steps before cutting yarn. Put to side until needed in later steps.

This feature will work well on toddler to adult male sized hats as pattern calls for.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, make a ch of  12 to 16 instead.

Smile sides (Make 2): using black yarn
Make  a ch of 4 to 5.  Make sure you leave a long enough tail to be able to secure the sides of your monster’s smile in place on the beanie hat during finishing off steps before cutting yarn. Put to side until needed in later steps. Repeat for second side of smile.

This feature will work well on toddler to adult male sized hats as pattern calls for.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, make a ch of  2 to 3 instead of 5.

This feature will work well on toddler to adult male sized hats as pattern calls for.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, do the following steps instead of those above:

Round 2: (back loops only)  Attach blue yarn where you left off in previous round with a sl st.  Ch 2 before placing 2 hdc in 1st st and 2 hdc in each st around working in back loops only to give a more clean looking transition. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. (16 hdc ) Fasten off blue.

Monster Horns (Make 3): using arthritis blue yarn (or your desired color)
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1 before placing 6 sc in circle. Pull circle closed and sl st in top of 1st st in round. (6 sc)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st st and 2 sc in each st around. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. (12 sc )

Round 4-6: Ch 1 and place 1 sc in each st around. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (18 sc)
Make sure you leave a long enough tail to be able to secure the monster horn bottom (optional if choose to do) and sew the assembled horn in place on the top of the monster hat.

This feature will work well on toddler to adult male sized hats as pattern calls for.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, do the following instead of horn instructions above:
Round 1:  You will start with black yarn to make the pupil of the eye. In magic circle, ch 1 before placing 6 sc in circle. Pull circle closed and sl st in top of 1st st in round. (6 sc)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st st and 2 sc in each st around. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. (12 sc )
Round 3-5: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in each st around. Sl st in to top of 1st st in round. (12 sc)

*Monster Horn Bottom (Make 3): using blue yarn (or desired color)*
*This is an optional step but one I highly recommend. Why? It prevents the stuffing from oozing out and itching foreheads when hats are worn as the stitches stretch out.  I like to do this on the back of stuffed features so that doesn’t happen and they keep their desired shape. *
Round 1:  In a magic circle, ch 1 before placing 6 sc in circle. Pull circle closed and sl st in top of 1st st in round. (6 sc)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st st and 2 sc in each st around. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. (12 sc )
Round 3: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st st, *make 1 sc in next st, 2 sc in following st *  repeating * until back at start of round. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (18 sc) fasten off.

Round 1:  You will start with black yarn to make the pupil of the eye. In magic circle, ch 1 before placing 6 sc in circle. Pull circle closed and sl st in top of 1st st in round. (6 sc)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st st and 2 sc in each st around. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. (12 sc ) Fasten off.

Finishing off:
Starting from the bottom up, use tail left on your monster’s eye and Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in place securely on beanie hat.  Once secure, pull yarn inside hat before fastening off.
For the lopsided smile, use your tail and yarn needle to sew the smile chain in desired position near the bottom of the beanie hat.  Once you have it in place, pull yarn to inside of your hat and fasten off.
Now that your smile is in place, take the tail from one smile side and use your needle to sew on one side of the smile. Once secure pull yarn to inside of hat and fasten off.  Repeat for second smile side.
Using the tail left on your white tooth and needle, sew it in desired location on smile you created on previous step.  You can reference the pictures with the pattern to see how I placed my own.  Once in place, pull yarn to inside of hat and fasten off.
*optional step for those who made horn bottoms in previous steps* Taking the tail left on one horn and and horn bottom, line the stitches up with horn bottom covering opening on horn.  Now stitch through both pieces for each stitch around. You will want to stop about 2/3 of the way to stuff your horn to desired fill.  I have a bad habit of over stuffing my features and it makes them bubble on the bottom so I try to do a little less than what I think looks good to compensate for the curve of the fitted hat when worn.  Once you have stitched all around perimeter, securing the bottom in place, keep the leftover tail to use in following step.  Repeat this process for the other 2 horns for your hat.
Taking the yarn tail left on one of your monster’s horns and your yarn needle, sew the horn securely on place on top of the beanie hat.  I started with the middle one and centered it on top of the hat before placing the other two on each side equal distance apart from middle horn but feel free to play around with it.   Once it is attached, pull your yarn to the inside and fasten off.  Now repeat the process for the other horns.
Now check over your crochet project for any tails or ends that you may have missed throughout assembly process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.
