Glam Black Cat Hat

Glam Black Cat Hat

One of the most popular Halloween costumes for girls is being a cat. Help her be one this year by working up the Glam Black Cat Hat. Not only is it the perfect accessory to a homemade Halloween costume, but it can also be worn later in the year as it stays rather chilly outside. In fact, the best part about this Halloween crochet pattern is that it uses reflective yarn. You can have no worries sending your kids door to door knowing that people will still see them in their costume while it's dark outside.

Notes

Directions are for size Small. Changes for sizes Medium and Large are in parentheses. Special Technique Adjustable-ring method = Wrap yarn in a ring, ensuring that the tail falls behind the working yarn. Grip ring and tail firmly between middle finger and thumb. Insert hook through center of ring, yarn over (with working yarn) and draw up a loop. Work stitches of first round in the ring, working over both strands (the tail and the ring). After the first round of stitches is worked, pull gently, but firmly, on tail to tighten ring. Notes 1. Hat is worked in joined rounds with right side facing. Cats ears and flower are made separately and sewn to hat. 2. Ch 1 at beginning of rounds does not count as a stitch. 3. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Cut old color.

I normally stick with conventional yarns, but I have a special young friend in mind for this hat, and shes well worth splurging on specialty yarn. Her church youth group is having a costume party and they dont want scary or gory costumes. Alex has lots of kitties at her house, so I know shell be thrilled with this idea. Ive already run it past her mom and she agrees, too.
