Free Crochet Pattern - Amigurumi hat and bow

Any yarn and hook you desire. I used a 4mm metal hook and stylecraft DK acrylic yarn to achieve a hat measuring 5.5 cm or 2.5 inches in height and 4cm or 1.5 inches wide. 
Bare in mind smaller hook and yarn smaller hat, likewise bigger hook and yarn, bigger hat 😉
If you wish to make the hat larger add more increasing rounds at the top BEFORE crocheting in the back loops. This will give the hat a wider circumference. 
Pattern Notes
Written in UK terms
It is recommended that a stitch marker is used to mark the beginning of each new round. Hat is made in the traditional amigurumi method, do not join after each round.
Dc - double crochet
Sl st - slip stitch
(1) - number of stitches you should have at the end of each round
** - repeat the instruction in between the stars around
Blo - crochet in the back loops only
Flo - crochet in the front loops only
Inc - increase
Any problems please do leave me a comment, or contact me on social media.
Okay let's hook and roll!
  1. 6 dc in a magic ring, pull the ring closed (6)
  2. Increase around 2dc in every stitch (12)
  3. *1 dc, inc* around (18)
  4. Blo - 1 dc in each stitch (18)
  5. In both loops - 1 dc in each stitch (18)
 6-15. Repeat round 5 (18)
  1. Flo - 1 dc in each stitch (18)
  2. In both loops - 1 dc around (18)
  3. *2 dc, inc* around (24)
  4. 1 dc in each stitch (24) fasten off.
Et voila your hat is complete.
I stuffed mine to attach it to my kitty, but it's really up to you how you style it out.

For kitty's bow I simply did the following;
Chain 7 turn
1 dc in second chain from the hook to the end, chain 1, turn (6)
1 dc in each stitch, chain 1, turn (6)
Repeat once more. Fasten off
Tie a long piece of yarn around the middle of the length of crochet to make a bow shape and sew in place.
My daughter says he looks like a circus cat 🤔 not the look I was going for but I'll take it 🤣 she thought he was very cute.

I hope you enjoy styling up your amigurumis. The kitty pattern i used is from the super talented Sarah Sloyer at Critterbeans you can visit her on Ravelry here. Happy hooking from down the rabbit hole x
