Easter Prep: Day 1 – Egg Dude Hats

In less than a week it will be Easter and as I always host an Easter family brunch I have to crack on as I’m way behind. It’s because of my book. So sorry to have bugged you with all the book launch stuff, it’s just that I’m utterly excited and like to share everything with you. I hope you don’t mind.

Back to Easter; today I bring you cute dude hats for your eggs. It makes me laugh when I see the eggs all tugged up in their little hats, they look like real cool dudes don’t they?

How to make these hats:

Foundation ring:
Make a magic ring and hdc 6 in the ring, pull tight.

Row 1:
ch 2 (counts as 1 hdc) hdc 1 in the same stitch, hdc 2 in all the next stitches (you multiply)

Row 2:
ch 2 (counts as 1 hdc) hdc 1 in the same stitch, hdc 1 in the next stitch, hdc 2 in the next stitch. Repeat until end.

Row 3-6:
ch2 (counts as 1 hdc) hdc 1 all around, fasten off.

Side bits:
fold the hat in half and mark 5 stitches left and right to add the side bits. Start with either left or right. hdc 5 for the first row, decrease 4 for the second, 3 for the third and two for the fourth row. Fasten off en leave enough yarn to use as a tie. Repeat this for the other side.

Would love to hear more often of your feedback (and not only to tell me off) as it’s much appreciated and I like to be in touch with you. Happy Monday xox

    Oh, my goodness – who knew eggs needed hats, but one look at them, and of course they do! These are ridiculously cute! My nine year old just spied them and said, "Those would be perfect for barbies". Thanks for the tutorial!

    These are the sweetest thing ever. Now I just need to find someone who wants to make me a dozen (I’m hopeless at crocheting and knitting).

    Oh, these make me smile! Reminds me of the little girl in Despicable Me… every egg needs one! I made some striped cosies using your original pattern this year, so maybe next year everyone will get the cool dude cosies

    Could anyone tell me what size hook was used here? Also should I be able to use regular worsted weight yarn? Thank you!! Awesome pattern. Can’t wait to try it out!

      Hello Felice,

      I don’t really understand your question as it’s right there in the pattern. Happy Easter!
