Breakfast on Your Head

24 Jun

DONE with Phoenix Comicon, finally. I love helping plans come together, but I don’t get much else done when I do, lol. While relaxing, I found this AWESOME pattern online for a bacon scarf. Instead of a flat ripple, it was all “curly” like real bacon! I was in love. Then a friend said “Now all you need  is a fried egg hat.” My friends are geniuses.

 

Bacon 'n eggs 'n croissant - ON YOUR HEAD!

Since the scarf pattern was free on the internet, I think it’s only fair that the hat is, too. If you’ve ever crocheted a hdc hat before, this will be very, very familiar to you. 🙂

For the hat, I used Caron One Pound in Sunflower and White, and for the scarf I used Vanna’s Choice in Brick and Sand.

Fried Egg Hat

You’ll need:
Sz J (6 mm)  & sz H (5 mm) hooks, worsted weight yarn in egg yellow and off white/aran

Hat is worked in a spiral. If you prefer to join each round, start the next with a ch 1

With J hook:
Round 1: 8 hdc in adjustable loop [8 sts]
R2: 2 hdc in each st around [16 sts]
R3: (2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in the next st) 8x. [24 sts]
R4: (2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in each of the next 2 sts) 8x. [32 sts]
R5: (2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in each of the next 3 sts) 8x.  [40 sts]
R6: (2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in each of the next 4 sts) 8x. [48 sts]
R7: (2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in each of the next 5 sts) 8x. [56 sts]
R8: (2 hdc in 1st st, 1 hdc in each of the next 6 sts) 8x. [64 sts]

Switch to sz H (5 mm) hook and white yarn

FO and weave in ends; leave thread on tip to sew down.

To keep it’s shape, you could roll it up around a pipe cleaner or floral wire. I didn’t because I was sewing the edges to a pat of “butter”. Start from the widest end and roll up; secure with a yarn needle or pin while you sew up the tip. Or glue it, whatever, it’s your food!

Butter:

Ch 6

Rows 1-12: Sc 5 across, ch 1, turn

Fold in half, sl st around all four edges

 

You don’t have to sew them together exactly the way I did, have fun with it. Now all your vegan friends can have bacon as well!
