Crochet Finn hat

I love Adventure Time! I felt the need to make a Finn hat. I made my nephew a hat for his birthday back in May and never got around to blogging about it. I finally got some time and made a hat for myself and this is what I did.

Size J hook
I work in continuous rounds

Ch 3, sl st first chain to join

Row 1- 6 SC in center of the circle
Row 2- 2 DC in in each stitch (12)
Row 3- 2 DC in each stitch (24)
Row 4- 2 DC in each stitch (48)
Row 5-15- 1 DC in each stitch
On the last row, sl st in 2nd stitch to even off the round.

For the ear flaps

You are going to continue from the last round

Row 16- Ch 3, 1 DC in the next 12 stitches, ch 3, turn
Row 17- 1 DC in each stitch, ch 3, turn
Row 18- DC 2 together, 1 DC in the next 8, DC 2 together, ch 3, turn (10)
Row 19- DC 2 together, 1 DC in the next 6, DC 2 together, ch 3, turn (8)
Row 20- DC 2 together, 1 DC in the next 4, DC 2 together, ch 3, turn (6)
Row 21- 1 DC in each stitch, tie off and leave a long tail and sew through the bottom to tighten up.

For the other flap attach the yarn where you want the other flap to start and do the exact same thing on that side.

For the ears
I'm still using a size J hook.

Ch 3, sl st to join
Row 1- 6 SC in center of the circle
Row 2- 2 SC in each stitch (12)
Row 3-5- 1 SC in each stitch
Stuff with poly fiber fill and attach to the hat as you see fit.



I kind of think the hat looks like a polar bear hat but to any Adventure Time fan, they will know that it's a Finn hat. ^_^
