Dinosaur Hat

Round Knifty Knitter loom in the prefered size for your hat
Flower loom
Worsted weight yarn in white
Worsted weight yarn in color of choice
2 black buttons

  1. Knit a basic roll brim hat following these instructions: Roll Brim Hat
  2. Rather than letting the brim roll, fold the brim up around 1 1/2 inches and use a yarn needle and thread to stitch the brim into place. Stitch from the inside of the hat, ensuring that the stitches tacking the brim into place are discreet.
  1. Use the flower loom for each eye. Hold two white yarns together as one, begin with the draw string cast on.
  2. Knit them using the two over two stitch. 
  3. After 12 rows, change colors to the same color yarn as used for the hat. Using the same 2 over 2 stitch, knit 8 more rows.
  4. Cut the working yarn to approximately 1 10 inches.
  5. Sew through each loop on the flower loom to cast off.
  6. Stuff the eye with Poly-fil.
  7. Pull the working yarn tight to close the top of the eye.
  8. Finish the eye by adding a black button.
  1. You will be making 3 triangle shaped spikes to line up down the back of the hat. You can use the same color as the hat itself, or a contrasting color of your choice.
  2. Begin by wrapping only one. You will still be holding 2 yarns as one.
  3. Increase stitch by wrapping an extra peg on each side of the peg wrapped in the previous row.
  4. You will now have 1 peg with 2 loops on it and 2 pegs with only one loop. Knit on the peg that has 2 loops in the one over one fashion.
  5. Wrap the next row using an increase (wrap and extra peg on each side of the previous row.) Knit all the pegs that have 2 loops. 
  6. Repeat step 5 until you have knit 11 rows. 
  7. Crochet cast off.
  8. This is your first triangle. You will make 6 of them.
  9. Sew 2 of the triangles together along 2 edges by sewing through each set of loops around the perimeter. Leave one side of the triangle open. Stuff with Poly-fil. 
  10. After stuffing, sew the open edge of the triangle to the hat using a yarn needle and thread. This is your first spike. Continue until you have 3 spikes down the back of the hat in a straight line.
