Fishbowl Crochet Hat Pattern {newborn through toddler}

Goldfish Hat Crochet Pattern

You may have seen the fishbowl hat I posted on Saturday. Thanks so much for all the sweet compliments I've received on it. Due to how cute everyone seems to think it is, I have added three more sizes so you can make this adorable little hat for more kiddos in your life. 

If you'd like to make your own, it's easy. The most difficult part will be sewing on all those adorable buttons. 

Materials: 
- Worsted Weight Yarn (turquoise or blue and white) - I used 100% cotton
- small amounts of green and yellow or gold worsted weight yarn
Favorite Findings Buttons (434 - Blue Ocean)
- thread for sewing on buttons
- tapestry needle

Notes: 
Chains do NOT count as the first stitch. 

Make an adorable fishbowl hat from this FREE! crochet pattern. Creative and unique, it's sure to get oohs and ahs from all who see it!

Crochet Fishbow Hat Step-by-step

Finishing Touches:
Goldfish Appliqué
Using the hook specified above and yellow/gold yarn, ch 7 (photo 1).
Row 1: sc in the second ch from hook. hdc in the next, dc in the next 2 stitches, hdc in the next, sc in the next. ch 3. sc in the second ch from hook, hdc in the next. sl st in the same stitch. (Photo 2)
Row 2: ch 3. sc in the second ch from hook, hdc in the next. Sl st in the BACK of the first stitch on the opposite side of the fish (photo 3). hdc in the next stitch, dc in the next 2 stitches, hdc in the next stitch, sc in the next. ch 1, sl st to the first stitch of the previous row. Cut yarn and leave a long tail for sewing on the hat.

Grass Appliqué (see photo 4):
Using green yarn the hook specified above, ch 7 (9 for 1-3 year size).
sl st in the second ch from the hook. sc in the next 5 (7) stitches. Do not cut yarn.
ch 10 (12). sl st in the second ch from hook. sc in the next 8 (10) stitches. Do not cut yarn.
ch 6 (8). sl st in the second ch from hok. sc in the next 4 (6) stitches. Cut yarn leaving a long tail for sewing on the hat. When you're finished you should have three "blades of grass" as shown in photo 4 above.

Braids:
For each side of the hat, cut 9 strands of yarn (I do three strands of 3 different colors) approximately 40 inches long. Fold them in half and pull the "loop" through the hat. Pull the loose ends through the loop to attach the yarn. Separate each color to make three strands. Then braid and knot at the end to secure. Cut yarn to make the ends even.

Once you have your hat made and the grass and goldfish finished, you'll need to sew on your buttons. I suggest placing them on the hat first to see how you're going to want them arranged. After you've sewn on the buttons, use a tapestry needle to sew on the grass and fish. I used a french knot to make the eye on the fish and the bubbles coming up from his mouth. This is a great tutorial on how to make French knots on crocheted or knitted items.

Free Baby Hat Crochet Pattern {Fishbowl Hat Pattern}

This FREE! pattern is available in THREE more sizes here.

Goldfish Hat Crochet Pattern

When my husband and I first got married, I got the "dog itch" pretty quickly. Just as fast, we realized that it definitely wasn't the ideal time for us to get a dog. Not able to get rid of the urge to get a pet, David and I bought a goldfish, some pretty stones, and a plant - his bowl was beautiful and we named our newest family member Elliot. I enjoyed watching him on the counter between the kitchen and the dining room. Several Elliots later, we decided to take a break from pets (after doing some reading, we realized that fishbowls weren't a good environment for goldfish). 

While getting ready for a garage sale, we found Elliot's bowl and rocks. It reminded me of how beautiful it always looked, and I thought it would be super cute to make a hat modeled after that bowl. Of course, I've got to share the adorable pattern with you, just in case someone wants to whip one up.
