Note: Hats are worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at


Paint bottom of cork white red with the acrylic paint. I recommend two coats.

Once the paint is dry. Insert screw hook in the top of the cork.

Using the Sliver Sharpie, draw the silver waistband.

Use Black Sharpie to make the Eyes

Use the Pink Sharpie to make the rosy cheeks.
