Top Hat and Bows Pattern

Ok here's the patterns for the top hat and the bows the octopuses were wearing lol. Got them written out and stuff. Gonna start with the top hat, there's two ways you can do it, one color and two colors.

  • Small amount of yarn (2 colors if you want the stripe)
  • G Hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Enough 3/8" ribbon to wrap around the hat and overlap just a tiny bit (Feel free to experiment with the ribbon size)
  • Place Marker

Gauge isn't important 

(Btw, if you want the stripe, change to CC on round 7, then back to MC on round 9 :D)

Rnd 1:  6 sc in magic ring
Rnd 2:  2 sc in each st around
Rnd 3:  *2 sc in next st, sc in next st* around
Rnd 4:  In BLO, sc around
Rnds 5-8:  Sc around
Rnd 9:  In FLO, sc around
Rnd 10:  *2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts* around
Sl st in next sc, FO, Weave in ends.

If you want the ribbon strip, take your ribbon and glue/sew it around...about round 8 (Right before the FL round, right  before it flares out.) If its just not staying, feel free to spray with some fabric stiffener!

Wow this pic is just terrible, I apologize lol
Ok, now on to the bows! Hook size...gauge not mattering...its all the same as the top hat, just no ribbon and place marker lol.

Small Bow
Row 1:  Ch8, sc across, turn

Rows 2 & 3: Ch1, sc across, turn
Row 4: Ch1, sc across, FO

Strip that wraps around the bow
Row 1: Ch7, sc across, FO, leaving a long enough tail to sew

Big Bow
Row 1:  Ch12, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across, turn
Rows 2-5: Ch1, sc across, turn
Row 6: Ch1, sc across, FO

Strip that wraps around the bow

Row 1:  Ch9, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across, turn
Row 2:  Ch1, sc across, FO leaving a tail long enough to sew

Pinch the center of the bow, wrap some yarn around a few times to hold in place. If you can weave some yarn or thread in the middle, that's great but that didn't work for me. Make sure its looking good, then wrap the strip around the middle to hide the yarn or thread, then sew the strip together. Weave in ends and you're done!


  1. Hello, Rydia!
    I loved your blog, I'm following, ok?
    I am Brazilian and I am beginning to
    make amigurumi.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great! I'm happy you like it, I was a little scared to put the patterns up lol. I'm just starting out but I'm hoping to have lots of patterns up here! And if you have any questions feel free to ask, I'm still pretty new at writing patterns, but I don't think there's any problems in it!

    Thanks so much! <3

  3. um can you tell me what each acronym means like BLO or FLO

  4. I can Teehee! BLO: back loops only, FLO: front loops only, SC: single crochet, CH: chain, ST: stitch, MC: main color, CC: contrasting color, FO: finish off.

    I think that's all I used, but if you have any more questions, feel free to ask!
