Hello!
I’m tickled…a purple-ish pink to be a part of Delia’s “Color my Summer” event. I’ve only started following blogs a little while ago and Delia’s blog (Delia Creates) was one of my firsts. I’m always inspired by her awesome photo’s and projects. I especially love her sweet, cheery spirit that shines through all her posts. Thank you so much Delia for including me! 

This awesome event is going on from May 3 to May 26 with new colorful and fun projects posted almost daily at both Delia Creates and Kojodesigns. Be sure to check out each blog because they each post a different project.

I love all crafts but I really lean toward crocheting as a favorite. I always find myself looking at things and asking myself…”could I crochet that?”

So today, I’m happy to show you the “Purple Crocheted Party Hat”. I had so much fun making these and I look forward to having these around forever. The crochet really brings an extra special and unique look to a party hat. I’d really like to make a super colorful, “It’s my birthday” party hat for all the kids to wear on their birthdays. 

Materials:
*Purple Worsted Weight Yarn
*G hook
*Stitch Marker
*Yarn Needle
*Scissors
*Stapler
*Some Cardstock Paper
*Hot glue

After your done with your crocheted party hat, it’s time to make your paper insert for some extra structural support.  
Step 1) Get  your supplies ready. Take your cardstock and fold into a cone.

 Step 2) Use your crocheted party hat to figure the size you’ll need, staple cone closed and cut off excess cardstock.

Step 3) Take your cone and hole puncher and punch two holes on either side of your cone for your elastic party hat strap.


Step 4) Cut about a 19″ piece of elastic and put each end through your holes, tie a knot to secure.

Step 5) I also super glued the extra elastic up the side of my cone for extra hold and to keep it out of the way.


Step 6) Now you just need to add your crocheted party hat to your paper cone and hot glue it on. I stretch the crocheted party hat down over the cone so that about 1/4″ of the crocheted hat is pulled past the paper cone. 

 

Step 7) Enjoy!

    Excellent hat. I would like to make it with out the paper cone to fit larger sizes for a cancer camp from Valarie’s House. The theme this year is circus animals and Stars. I can do it as a clown hat as well as a hat covered with stars. Thank for sharing

    I just made this hat in two days. If I would have just sat and crocheted it, I would have been done yesterday. I love it. I needed to make a party hat for one of my groups that I just joined for International Crochet Month! I love it and it was so easy to make!!

      it means the number of stitches you should have after you have increased them per the other instructions like if you have 6 stiches in one row and it says to add 2 increases to the next row then you would have 8 stitches does that make sense
