Turkey Hat Napkin Ring


 A napkin ring or a hat for the Turkey,

This is a scrap yarn busting project. You can make these quirky napkin rings for your Thanksgiving table this year or just make the hat for the bird! The Turkey is a free pattern here

Video Tutorial,
This video starts at row 1 of the hat and was filmed in the following order:
Crochet rows 1-11. How to hide the finishing yarn tail. Crochet a chain and sew it in. How to add the band and buckle. This is a absolute beginner friendly video. I
hope you enjoy!
Scroll down this page for the written pattern.


How to print the pattern,

There is a green print friendly button at the bottom of this page.


This is a free pattern and video tutorial with the option to donate. Donations help keep this blog active. If you can't donate today you can help support my blog in other ways here


Supplies:
worsted weight yarn in any color - 12.5 yards will make 1 hat.
12 inch strand of yellow or gold yarn for the buckle
4mm hook
blunt end yarn needle for sewing
scissors
felt, ribbon or colored construction paper for the belt
glue or needle and thread for attaching the belt

Abbreviations:
st = stitch
sc = single crochet
BLO = back loops only
FLO = front loops only
sl st = slip stitch
f/o = finish off

How to read the rows when working in the round: 
Add a maker at the end of row 2 and move that marker each time you finish a
row. Each row has a sequence. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.

Important notes about this pattern:
I made a couple of the hats minus 1 row of sc which made the hat a little bit shorter. I couldn't decide which height I liked better so decided to leave the option to you. The size difference is shown in the introduction of this video.

Hat: 

1) magic circle or adjustable loop with 7sc (7)
2) 2sc in each st (14)
3) In the BLO 1sc in each loop (14)
4) 1sc in each st for 1 row
5) 1sc in the next 6st then 2sc in the next st (16)
6-7) 1sc in each st  *if you want a shorter hat, skip row 7.
8) 1sc in the next 7st then 2sc in the next st (18)
9) 1sc in each st for 1 row
10) In the FLO 2sc in each loop (36)
11) 1sc in each st for 1 row
sl st next st and f/o weave in yarn tail by pulling the yarn tail through a loop on the inside of the rim, pull slightly but not too tight to alter the shape of the rim. Then carry it out through the top of the hat, wrap over a row on top then bring it out through the side of the hat, pull slightly until the top of the hat is flat. Knot off then bring the yarn tail inside the hat and cut short.

If you are making this hat for the turkey only, do not add the chain (napkin ring)

Napkin Ring: make 1 using the same color as hat
1) ch14. The starting yarn tail needs to be long enough for sewing.
f/o leaving a tail for sewing.

Sew the chain to the hat before adding the felt belt or ribbon:
In the video I do explain how the chain should be positioned and sewn in, please watch at 15:25 if unsure. Bring the one yarn tail inside the hat and come out in between the 3rd and 4th row from the start of the rim. Sew the chain in place, sewing down to the rim, you should be able to add in 3 holding stitches. Bring  the yarn needle through the chain itself each time you go in and out of the hat. Once done, knot off  then weave the yarn tail under the chain inside the hat to keep it from dangling. Cut short. Sew the other yarn tail in the same way, directly across. Be sure the chain is not twisted before you start sewing.

Belt and buckle:
Wrap whatever you have chosen to use as a belt around the hat with the ends overlapping each other. The width of the belt is a bit less than half an inch wide.
Sew in yellow or gold yarn around the belt in the center, front of the hat. Start from the inside. Once done, knot the yarn tails inside and then cut them short. After the buckle is sewn on, glue the 2 ends. You can glue the ends using tacky glue, fabric glue, or hot glue. Or sew the ends using sewing thread and needle.
