Crochet Lovebot Robot Hat



Apparently a new year brings lots of new ideas because I have been a multi-tasking machine this past weekend! I have lots of new projects to show you, the first being this Lovebot Robot Hat! You can make it a regular robot just by making the heart button eyes circles or make him as I did and gift it for Valentine's Day! Color options for this hat are endless. And I am excited to show you how to make a square hat instead of the normal circle you are used to. Dare I say it's actually easier?!

Materials:
- Worsted Weight Yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Dusty Blue, Scarlet Red, and Silver Blue, and a little bit of White.
- Size H Crochet Hook
- Two Heart Buttons (or round black buttons)
- Tapestry Needle

Abbreviations:
Magic Ring Tutorial
SC = Single Crochet
SC Decrease = Single Crochet Decrease

Earflaps should be centered over side seams/folds. Start with the place where you fastened off. Count 5 stitches over to the right and attach yarn. Do the same on the other side, using the place where the hat folds as your center marker.

Earflaps for 0-3 months - Preschooler
Earflap 1:
Chain 1, SC in next 10, chain 1, turn
Row 2: SC decrease, SC in next 6, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 3: SC across (8 SC)
Row 4: SC decrease, SC in next 4, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 5: SC across ( 6 SC)
Row 6: SC decrease, SC in next 2, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 7: SC across (4 SC)
Row 8: Make 2 SC decreases, chain 1, turn
Row 9: SC decrease, fasten off, weave in ends

Earflap 2:
Chain 1, SC in next 10, chain 1, turn
Row 2: SC decrease, SC in next 6, SC decrease, chain 1, turn

Row 7: SC across (4 SC)

Row 9: SC decrease, fasten off, weave in ends
With accent color (I used dusty blue), attach yarn and SC around the entire bottom edge of the hat (including earflaps). Fasten off and weave in ends. Cut 6 long strands of the same color or varying colors, pull yarn halfway through last loop of the earflaps (you now have 12 strands). Knot, braid and knot again at the end of your braid. Trim ends of braided tails so yarn is even. Do this for both earflaps.
