Turtle Hat



Sorry it took me so long to write another pattern! The holidays were hectic and I'm pregnant now so I've been pretty busy. :D Anyway, I couldn't find an adult sized pattern for a turtle hat so here is a new one! The mohawk isn't included in the pattern, it was just an add-on for a friend.


Hook: 1/9 or 5.5 mm, F/5 or 3.75
Yarn: Worsted weight in two colors. (Color change is optional)
Ch 2 counts as dc. Do not turn unless specified. Change color after every second row.
Bobble: (Yo and draw up a loop, yo and draw through two loops) five times, yo and draw through all six loops.
Gauge: First two rows of hat should measure two inches across. If it measures a little less that is okay, but any larger and you should probably use a smaller hook.
