Four Free Hat Patterns For Blythe From Lisa Bunting Thoms of Q.D. Patooties

I thought you might all like to know that Lisa Bunting Thoms of Q.D. Patooties has four wonderful free patterns to share for making 3 crocheted and 1 sewn hat for BLYTHE. I hope you enjoy making all of Blythe's hats.


Cloche Hat (Crochet)
Copyright © 2008-2009 - All Rights Reserved - Lisa Bunting Thoms of Q.D. Patooties

Here's the instructions and what Lisa had to say about her clothe hat:  This is a very easy beginners FREE crochet pattern that whips up in just over an hour. Since I have been bitten by the "Blythe Bug" as I mentioned yesterday, it was only a matter of time before I started creating things for her and this just happens to be the first of probably many patterns. 

Materials:
Patons "Classic Wool" Merino, 100% Wool, 3 1/2 oz. (100g) in Blue Marl (variegated white/blue)

Size D/3 (3.25mm) Crochet Hook
Directions:

To Begin, Ch10 and join the first and last stitches to form a loop.
Rd. 1: Ch 3 and then 15 DC inside the loop.

Rd. 2: Ch 3 and then 1 DC inside the first DC followed by a SC all the way around. So you should have a stitch followed by a hole.

Rd. 3: Ch 3 and then in the new hole that you’ve made do 2 DC followed by 1 SC then 2 DC in the next followed by 2 SC. It will start to look almost like a lace doily.

Rd. 4: Ch 3 and then in the first that you’ve made do 3 DC followed by 1 SC then 3 DC in the next followed by 2 SC .

Rd. 5 - 6: Ch3 and then in the first stitch that you’ve made do 3 DC followed by 2 SC all the way around. You’re gradually “increasing” the size of your doll’s hat.

Rd. 7 - 10: Rd. 4: Ch 3 and then in the first stitch that you’ve made do 3 DC followed by 1 SC then 3 DC in the next followed by 2 SC.

Rd. 11: For the shell trim, SC in the first stitch, HDC in the second stitch, 1 DC, 1 TDC, 1 DC in the third stitch, HDC in the fourth stitch and a SC in the fifth stitch. Repeat all the way around the rim of the hat.
Since this hat is "lacy" and has some holes, you can weave some coordinating ribbon through the openings and tie it in a bow to add a little decorative touch. Enjoy!

Here's the instructions and what Lisa had to say about her kisses from elvish beret:   Here's a little beret I just finished for my Blythes. It kind of looks like a little Hershey's Kiss Elf hat so of course the name "Kisses from Elvish" seemed appropriate.

Spidey Hat (Sewing) 
Copyright © 2008-2009 - All Rights Reserved - Lisa Bunting Thoms of Q.D. Patooties


Here's the instructions and what Lisa had to say about her Spidey Hat: For this project, you'll need a pair of one size fits all knit gloves and a single mitten from a one size fits all set of knit mittens. The gloves will serve as the "body" of your spider and then the mitten will be the lining of your hat. I found my gloves and mitten sets at Target. They are $1.49 and you get two pairs so you'll be able to make two complete hats for your Blythe dolls for less than $5.00. Other supplies you'll need include a some sharp scissors, some clear drying tacky or fabric glue, two 1-inch Pom-Poms for eyeballs, two 1/2-inch Pom-Poms for pupils, a small amount of Polyfil stuffing, a needle, some thread, embroidery floss, and a stuffing stick. If you'd like to use your sewing machine, you can use that too. This project is small enough though that it can be completed quickly in under an hour without a sewing machine. So, it's up to you.

1)  Cut the cuffs off of your gloves as well as the thumb (sorry I didn't show that step) and then cut the top off of your mitten (almost down to the thumb joint on the mitten). As I mentioned, the gloves will be the body of your spider and the mitten top will be the liner of your hat.

2)  With right sides together, sew your gloves up the center seam to form your spider body.

3)  Then, turn your spider body inside out and insert your mitten top as shown in the photo above. Sew all the way around leaving about an 1 1/2 opening so you can turn your hat.

4)  When you turn your hat, it should look like the photo above. It almost looks like an octopus instead of a spider! But that might be another tutorial (heh, heh, heh). Using your stuffing stick, go through the small hole you left to turn your spider and fill his "legs" with a small amount of Polyfil. You don't want to stuff them too much or they won't stand up right. Also, the white stuffing will show through your knit fabric. Then, ladder stitch your hole shut.

5)  Using some embroidery floss, make a silly grin on your spider's face. Glue together the eyes and let them dry so you can glue them on top of your hat.

6)  One you glue the eyes on top of your hat and they dry, it will be ready to wear. Enjoy!
