Being modeled by my 3-yr old daughter. This hat should fit up to 10 years old!

Just recently, I had someone request a crochet pattern for a Draculaura hat for little kids. Well, after spending about a week and a half on it (off and on, of course), I managed to come up with one. I am not too happy with how the eyes have turned out, therefore, I am offering it as a FREE crochet pattern!! This hat should fit any child from 3-years old on up to 10-years old. If you have any questions about this crochet pattern (or any other crochet pattern from me), just shoot me a comment, or an email at FamilyBugs@Gmail.com and I will help you just as soon as I can 🙂

Also: I always take requests for making specific crochet patterns (offered for free, like this one, or at a highly discounted rate), so if there’s something you want, just contact me and I will see what I can do!!

MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Hook Size: J/10-6.00 MM and G/6-4.25MM
  • Yarn Type: Worsted Weight (I use Red Heart Super Saver), in black, white, pink (any shade, I used baby pink) tan, and a purple color

Stitches Used

  • Ss – Slip Stitch
  • Sc – Single Crochet
  • Hdc – Half Double Crochet
  • Dc – Double Crochet
  • Inc – Increase = Work two of the same stitch both into the next stitch
  • Hdc2tog – Half Double Crochet 2 Together – Yarn over hook, Insert hook into first designated stitch. Yarn over hook and pull through stitch. Yarn over hook and insert hook into second designated stitch. Yarn over hook and pull through stitch, Yarn over hook and pull through all 5 loops on hook.
  • Dc2tog – Double Crochet 2 Together – Yarn over hook, insert hook into first designated stitch, Yarn over hook, and pull through stitch, yarn over hook and pull through two loops on hook (half of a double crochet stitch). Yarn over hook and insert hook into second designated stitch, yarn over hook and pull through stitch, yarn over hook and pull through two loops on hook, yarn over hook and pull through remaining loops on hook.
  • Sc2Tog – Single Crochet 2 Together – Insert hook into first available space. Yarn over, pull through. Insert hook into second available space. Yarn over, pull through. Yarn over and pull through all loops on hook (also called an invisible decrease).

Gauge Swatch – This is used to determine if your tension and hook is going to create a similarly sized product at the end.  After completing this, if your swatch measures larger, you might want to choose a smaller hook and complete another gauge swatch.  If your swatch measures smaller, choose a larger hook and try again.

Ch 16
ROW 1: Sc in second ch from hook and all the way across (15) Ch 2, turn.
ROW 2: Dc all the way across (15) Ch 1, turn.
ROWs 3, 5: Repeat Row 1
ROWs 4, 6: Repeat Row 2
Finish off.  Swatch should measure pretty close to 5.5” X 3″

Take some white yarn and stitch in a little bit of a “sparkle” in the center of the eye, making sure that it is the same for both eyes. And voila! Attach the eyes to the tan part of the hat, and attach the pig tails to the back of the hat (making sure that they point outwards and curl in the right direction). And it is finished!!
