We share a wonderful crochet beret pattern for you. You can browse our website for beautiful crochet patterns.

It’s a classic pink pig! For a variation on this style, crocheted in a uniform colour, you could substitute one ball of yarn for a lighter or darker shade of pink to finish the edging, cords and tassels.

TENSION

METHOD

The ears, snout and main part of the pig hat are worked in rounds of double crochet. The ears are lightly stuff ed and attached to the hat. The fl attened shape of the snout is formed by crocheting into just the back loops of the stitches at the beginning and end rows of the side edges. Buttons are stitched and pulled into the snout to shape it further after stuffi  ng the piece. Button eyes, twisted cords and tassels fi nish the hat.

MAKING UP

Edging

With right side of work facing, using 4mm hook and A, rejoin yarn to the back of the hat by the second earfl ap and follow the edging pattern as for the leopard hat on page 23.

Ears

Stuff  the ears lightly, keeping a fl attened shape. With the long length of yarn left, sew the 15[18] stitches together from each side of the last round of the ears to join, forming a straight edge. Shape the ears by bringing the two corners to the middle and stitch together to hold in place. Sew the ears to the main section of the hat, stitching all around the lower edges to prevent them from fl opping over.

Snout

Stuff  the snout, keeping the front fl at. With the long length of yarn left at the end, run a line of stitches through the last round and pull the yarn to gather the stitches and close the opening before fastening off . Sew the small buttons to the snout, stitching right through to the back of the work and pulling tight on the thread to draw the nostrils in. Attach the snout to the main part of the hat at the centre front, positioning it just above the edging stitches.

Finishing touches

If making a crocheted lining, attach the twisted cords to the hat after inserting the lining. Weave in all yarn ends. Make two twisted cords (see page 154) measuring 8[12]in (20[30]cm) long in A, using 6[8] strands of yarn. Make two tassels (see page 155) measuring 4[5⅛]in (10[13]cm) long in A, and attach each to one end of the cord, then stitch the other end of the cord to the tip of the earfl ap. Place the small black buttons over the larger white buttons and sew in place for the eyes.

LINING

See pages 142–5 for how to make and attach a cosy fleece or crocheted lining.
