Embellish your new mini top hat with scraps of :

ribbon
feathers
silk flowers
lace
various trims
netting
buttons
bows
rolled shabby flowers
pearls
rhinestones
tulle

Whatever sparks your creativity!

This is an inexpensive fascinator.
It'll cost between $5 - $10 for the supplies.
It can be crocheted in about 30 minutes (or a little more depending on your level of expertise).
They are perfect for party favors too!




This tutorial is for personal use only.
If you do make a fascinator using my tutorial, I would appreciate a link back to this tutorial please!
I always try to give full credit to the creative blogs and people who inspire me - you can see evidence of this all over my blog!
I only ask for the same curtsy in return.

Thank you!


Have fun!

If I want to make it bigger...
do I repeat rows 4 & 5 until it's big enough ? Or else ?
Awesome tutorial by the way n_n

Anita said...

Thank you so much for the pattern!
My son's 16th birthday is coming up and he LOVES Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland! I can't blog about it right now because he'll see it, but I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed the pattern!

I also have to say that your little one is an absolute DOLL! ...of course, you already know that. *Ü*

Thanks again!

Found you via pinterest! Love this hat! Very creative!

Panda8ngel said...

I have some technical questions I am hoping you could help me with.

1. After you join with a slip stitch and then chain one to start the next row, do you start your next sc in the same spot as your sl st or the next one?

2. Does your start stitch move over? I find that my seam starts moving diagonally. Does yours?

Thanks for any help. :)

Angie - treasuresfortots@gmail.com said...

@Panda8angel: I hope this helps!

1. At the end of each round, you'll sl st into a sc. When you start the next round, you'll make your first sc into the one you just joined with a sl st.

2. Are you remembering to turn your work in the same direction after each round? Your seam shouldn't move diagonally.

Hi from England! My Steampunk-loving daughter wanted a hairband with a top hat on it - your pattern did the job! I also wanted to say how cute I thought your daughter's expression was in the first photo - she looks like she'd rather be some where else lol.
