Cabbage Patch Hat, Again!

I was commissioned to make another cabbage patch doll hat, this time for a 6 month old, and with loose pigtails, fringe bangs, in blonde!

Cabbage Patch Doll Hat
Hook: Size H crochet hook, my go-to size!
Yarn: Vanna’s Choice Soft, Duckie color

Size 6 Month
Round 1: ch 3, join to form loop, dc 10, join to first dc
Round 2: Ch 2, 2 dc each dc around. Place a “marker yarn” of a different color to keep track of rounds.
Round 3: *2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc, repeat from * around.
Round 4: *2 dc in next dc, dc in next 2 dc, repeat from * around.
Round 5-11: dc in next dc around.
Round: sc in each dc around.
Round: slip st in each sc around.

For the fringe bangs, cut strands of yarn 5 inches long. Tie two at a time to the front 16 stiches, and a few stiches sporadically underneath to add depth. (Do a loop tie, by halving the yarn, using a crochet hook to pull the loop through, and drawing the two loose ends through the loop.)

For the pigtails, cut 30 strands of yarn, 12 inches long. Tie a string in the middle of the strands, use the string ends to join between rows 3 and 4, about 3 stiches back from the last bang stiches. Use a few of the other strands to secure the pigtail well. Tie a 12 inch long ribbon bow over the mess you made in joining. Repeat for the other side!
