Crochet baby turkey hat pattern

I am obsessed with making the baby crocheted hats for my new baby. This is my fifth design, and sixth hat since I made one in two different sizes. I saw a turkey hat for sale on Groopdealz and I suddenly had an urge to make one. I looked for a pattern but nothing was exactly what I wanted so I just made one up myself. It was fairly quick and easy and I finished it in two days. I am somewhat obsessed with this silly turkey hat even though he will probably only wear it a couple of times, at least I will get a cute picture out of it :)

I had all these colors already in my stash. I think the hat would also look cute in a light brown color but I had dark brown so that is what I used. Any shade of red, orange and yellow would also work well.

I wrote the pattern for a 0-3 month size but I am going to give a variation for newborn and 3-6 month size as well. I did not test if the face pattern will work or not so it may need to be adjusted if it is too big or small.

Materials:
H hook
Worsted weight yarn in brown, red, orange, gold, white and black. I used a mix of Loops and Thread Impeccable (brown/orange/black) and Red Heart Super Saver (red/gold/white)
Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
HDC- Half Double Crochet
SC- Single Crochet
DC- Double Crochet
SS- Slip Stitch

Earflaps:

Turn, CH 1. SC in next 8 stitches
Turn, CH 1. SC decrease over first two stitches. SC in next 4 stitches, SC decrease over last two stitches.
Turn, CH 1. SC in next 6 stitches
Turn, CH 1.SC decrease over first two stitches. SC in next 2 stitches, SC decrease over last two stitches.

Turn, CH 1.SC decrease over first two stitches, SC decrease over last two stitches.
Turn, CH 1. SC in next 2 stitches. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Repeat on other side.
Join in back and SC around entire hat, putting 2 SC at the base of each side of the earflap.

Eyes- Make 2:
In black: Magic Ring, CH 1. 8 HDC in ring. Join with SS to top of first HDC.
In white: Join, CH 2. 2 DC in each stitch around. Join with SS to top of first DC.
Fasten off. Leave an extra long tail for sewing. Use the tail to put a small stitch in the black part of the eye.

Beak:
In gold: CH 4.
Turn (do not make a CH 1) SC in next 3 stitches.
Turn (do not make a CH 1) SC in next 2 stitches.
Turn (do not make a CH 1) SC in next stitch.
SC around entire piece putting 2 SC in each point of the triangle. ( I found it helpful to put a stitch marker in the first stitch)
Fasten off. Leave an extra long tail for sewing.

Feather Curly Qs:
Make 1 red, 2 orange, 2 gold
CH 18. SC in 2nd CH from hook and each across.
Fasten off. Leave an extra long tail for sewing.
This will curl on it’s own. Use your fingers to help the piece curl more.

Beak Curly Q:
In red
CH 11. SC in 2nd CH from hook and each across.
Fasten off. Leave an extra long tail for sewing.

I find it easiest to sew the beak on the center of the hat first. Then sew the beak curly Q next to it. Sew the eyes above the beak. Sew the Feather Curly Qs to the top of the hat. Use the picture as a guide.

Braids- Make 2:
Use 2 strands each of red, orange and gold.
Cut strands to 24 inches.
Use a crochet hook to pull through bottom of earflap.
Tie a knot, braid to desired length and tie another at the end. (It is easier to start with longer strands and cut shorter if desired after the braid is made.)

You may use any of the patterns I create for personal use. If you would like to make an item to sell with my patterns you must link back to the pattern on my blog. You can not sell my patterns as your own.
