Angry bird bomber hat

013

Notes:
*whenever you do applique or specialty work try to use the smallest tapestry hook possible for all weaving and sewing for a neater look
*for a seamless look on your hat follow one of the seamless methods found here

Materials:
4.0mm hook for appliques
5.0mm hook for hat
Vanna’s choice yarn in yellow or gold, white, black, grey and cranberry
or any worsted weight (Red Heart is a good inexpensive alternative) in the same colors
embroidery needle for weaving in ends and attaching appliques

To cre8te the hat:

  1. Mc 6sc join with sl st, do not pull center tight
  2. 8sc around
  3. 8sc around
  4. 8sc around, pull up on loop to make larger and remove hook, turn piece inside out (you want the “wrong” side to show) and pull tail through center hole, pull tight and fasten off tail of mc (if you don’t do this now you won’t be able to get to it later)

  5. Insert hook back into loop going the normal right way and sc once around <8> join with sl st and cut yarn long enough to change color and weave in later
  6. Change color by picking up black yarn and pulling through yellow yarn, pull tail of yellow yarn tight so that only black yarn shows and hdc around <8> do not sl st to finish round yet * work over tails but leave out enough to weave them back in the opposite direction.  At this point pull up on loop and lengthen, remove hook for easier working and weave yellow and black tails securely in opposite directions, be sure to pull tight enough so that no seem or step in row color shows.  Sl st to join.
