Gobble Gobble!

I don't know about you, but I am ready for some Turkey.  Thanksgiving is still weeks away, so I guess my new Turkey Hat will have to do until then! 
I am super excited about this crochet pattern.  Hope you all love it as much as I do!

Wattle
H hook
Using Red
Ch 21
Sc in 2nd ch from hook, 2 sc in next ch, 2 hdc in next 5 ch’s, 2 dc in each of the remaining ch’s, sl st into last ch and finish off.
When attaching the wattle, attach yarn to the end with the sc’s and attach next to the beak.

Pom pom
Use Red, Yellow, Orange, and Brown
Holding all 4 colors together, wrap around your hand or piece of cardboard until you get the thickness you would like.  I wrapped about 25-30 times.
Carefully slide the yarn off of your hand or cardboard.
Using a length of brown yarn, tie a knot TIGHTLY around the middle of your pom.  You will have two sides of loops once you have tied your brown yarn around the pom
Once you have the pom secured, cut the loops.
Give your pom a haircut to even it out, but DON’T cut the brown yarn you used to secure your pom.  You will use this length of yarn to fasten the pom to the hat.


Braids (make 2)
Using Red, Yellow, Orange, and Brown.
Cut 3 lengths of each color of yarn approx 38 inches long.
Fold the lengths of yarn in half and attach to the bottom of the earflap.
Braid down the length of the yarn and tie a knot at the end.

Using the photo as a guide, sew all the pieces onto the hat.
Weave in all ends.

  1. Thank you for this pattern!!

    I played around with the sizing a bit, and came up with a hat that fitted me, so I now have a really quirky hat to wear once the weather gets colder :D
