This hat is up for auction at HOPE FOR ANTON. The starting bid is $7 - normally priced at $20. I don't have the ability to put in the money I'd like to give right now. But I can make things! So here's just the first of many items I hope to give towards the HOPE FOR ANTON auctions! :)

  1. Hi Susie
    That is a lovely Hat! That is a very good way to help friends out!

    Here's a pattern that you might like

    Cupcake Hat

    You’ll need size 8 circular (16") and double pointed needles.
    Cast on 80 stitches with the yellow yarn.
    Work 2x2 rib for 3 inches.
    Change to pink yarn work *Knit 3, Knit one into front and back* for entire round, ending with 100 stitches. Work until piece measures 5 inches from cast on edge.
    Then you start the decreases.
    *Knit 8, Knit 2 together* for entire round (90)- Knit next round
    *Knit 7, knit 2 together* for a round (80) - Knit next round
    *Knit 6, knit 2 together* for a round (70) - Knit next round
    *Knit 5, knit 2 together* to end (60) - Knit next round
    *Knit 4, Knit 2 together* (50) - knit next round
    Switch to double pointed needles.
    *Knit 3, knit 2 together* for one round (40)- Knit next round
    *Knit 2, knit 2 together* (30) - Knit next round
    *Knit 1, Knit 2 together* (20)
    *Knit 2 together* to end of round (10)
    Break yarn, draw yarn through remaining stitches and secure inside hat. Make a red pompom and attach to top of hat. Ding! The cupcake hat is done!

    God Bless
