Scrappy Mohawk Hat


  
Hello CKC friends!  Kristi here with a super fun crochet project that you can create with all of those leftover scraps!  We all have them cluttering up our work area…let’s make something that’s a design all of your own!





What you’ll need:
Scraps of yarn, ribbon, tulle, fabric, etc.
Crochet I-hook
Scissors


STEP 1 – Crochet the Base Hat
Follow the crochet pattern listed below, making sure to use a new color of yarn (perfect for those yarn scraps) for every round.  And if you get halfway through a round and run out of that color, just switch to a new one!  The crazier the colors, the better!




Child Size Beanie Pattern
Working in rounds:

Round 1 - Ch 3, 8 hdc in first ch  (8 st)  Join with a sl st to first hdc.
Round 2 - Ch 2, 2 hdc in each st around.  (16 st)  Join with a sl st to first hdc.
Round 3 - Ch 2, hdc in first st, 2 hdc in next, *hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st*
                                Repeat from * around.  (24 st)  Join with a sl st to first hdc.
Round 4 - Ch 2, hdc in first 2 st, 2 hdc in next, *hdc in next 2 st, 2 hdc in next st*
                                Repeat from * around.  (32 st)  Join with a sl st to first hdc.
Round 5 - Ch 2, hdc in first 3 st, 2 hdc in next, *hdc in next 3 st, 2 hdc in next st*
                                Repeat from * around.  (40 st)  Join with a sl st to first hdc.
Round 6 - Ch 2, hdc in first 4 st, 2 hdc in next, *hdc in next 4 st, 2 hdc in next st*
                                Repeat from * around.  (48 st)  Join with a sl st to first hdc.
Round 7 - Ch 2, hdc in first 5 st, 2 hdc in next, *hdc in next 5 st, 2 hdc in next st*
                                Repeat from * around.  (56 st)  Join with a sl st to first hdc.
Round 8 - Ch 2, hdc in first 13 st, 2 hdc in next, *hdc in next 13 st, 2 hdc in next st*
                                Repeat from * around.  (60 st)  Join with a sl st to first hdc.
Round 9 - Ch 2, hdc in each st around.  (60 st)  Join with a sl st to first hdc.
Rounds 10-17 - Repeat Round 9.
Round 18 - Ch 1, sc in each st around.  (60 st)  Join with a sl st to first sc.

Finish off.

STEP 2 – Marking the Hat for the Mohawk
Once your beanie is finished, you can now mark the stitches for the mohawk.  Your mohawk will be four-five stitches wide.  Pick any stitch of the last round to start and mark the two stitches on either side of it with stitch markers or pieces of yarn.  Find the very top of your hat and mark the two stitches on either side of that also.  Now mark the stitches in line with the marks.  Repeat this on the back of your hat.





STEP 3 – Cutting the Scraps
The best part about this project is…you can use any scraps you want!  Use all yarn, all fabric…or mix and match!  Don’t forget tulle and ribbons and feathers and lace!  Anything goes! 
*Bonus if you can get happy helpers to do the scrap-cutting!* 

Using a pinking shears, cut pieces of fabric 1” x 7”
Cut ribbon, lace and yarn 7” long
Cut tulle 3” x 6”



  
STEP 4 – Tying the Scraps
Once you have a big pile of scraps cut, you can start tying them randomly on the hat, making sure to stay in-between the stitch markers.  There’s no right or wrong way, any certain order, or how many you need to use!  Have fun with it!
 If you are unsure the best way to tie the scraps, I took these photos to show how I make the knots.  I find this way makes the ties stand up a little better!





Once you go all the way down the hat, you’re finished! 
This project is great for kids and adults!  Crochet the hat and hand it to your son or daughter to finish it up with scraps!  How fun is it to make something together?





Happy Hooking,
Kristi
