Pattern Time! A Fuzzy Cupcake Hat: Newborn Size

Repost: A Fuzzy Cupcake Hat-newborn size
**As it previously appeared on the Wee Little Changes blog**





Materials: J hook, Vanna’s choice in chocolate, White Fun Fur, and off-white or white Red heart worsted weight yarn, ~12 buttons to use for sprinkles, a yarn needle and some scrap yarn for button sewing.



Size: Fits a newborn sized to small infant sized head, approximately 13-15” (give or take) with a note for slightly larger heads after row 9.

Hat:



Row 1: Holding white and white fun fur yarns together (here and throughout top of hat), ch 2. Work 12 dc sts into 2nd ch from hook. Join last st w a sl st to 1st st to create a circle of dc’s, ch 3 and turn (ch 3 counts as 1st st in next row here and throughout unless otherwise noted).

Row 2: Work 1 dc in join sp, then 2 dc in each dc sp around, join, ch 3, and turn. (24)

Row 3: DC around evenly, join, ch 3, and turn. (24)

Row 4: Work 1 dc in join sp, 1 in next dc sp, *2 dc in next sp, 1 in next sp* repeating * to * around; join, ch 3, and turn. (36)

Row 5: DC around evenly, join, ch 3, and turn. (36)

Row 6: Work 1 dc in join sp, 1 in each of next 2 dc sp, *2 dc in next sp, 1 in each of next 2 sp* repeating * to * around; join, ch 3, and turn. (48)

Row 7-9: DC around evenly. Fasten off white and white fun fur. (48)

Row 10: With brown, join to hat where you stopped with the whites to continue to your next row. Decrease by 6 stitches evenly around (every 6th st worked well for me). (42)

**If you’d like this hat to fit a slightly larger head, do not decrease the sts in row 10, but continue to work with 48 sts per row adding 1-2 rows more of rib below bringing the final row count to 15 rather than 13.**

Row 11-13: Rib the hat by repeating 2 FPDC, 2 BPDC around being sure to match the stitches around from the rows above. (42) Fasten off at end of row 13.

Decorations:

Using your yarn needle and spare yarn to match the top of your hat, sew on buttons scattered randomly across the top.
