Hello Rainbows 🌈
We continue this momentum of surprises for my 2 years of activity as a designer behind My Rainbow Crochet with the second pattern of this month (yes others are still waiting for you 👀). If you don’t want to miss the release of the next ones, you can subscribe to my Instagram account!
After the release of the Birthday Unicorn Cupcake, here is a new pattern to complete your outfit for all birthday parties: the party hat.
Very easy to make, to decorate in all the colors you want!
The positive aspect if you crochet this hat is that you can reuse it for several parties, an ecological side compared to cardboard hats which are almost always used only once. In addition to having fun crocheting it of course! 😄
Ready to get into the festive spirit with me? Discover the pattern below 🥳🔽

➡ Cut and tuck the yarn.
▶ Fur Embroidery
Make a slip knot with the fur yarn.
Tuck the hook into a stitch of the 1st white row at the purple border and bring out the fur loop.
Tuck the hook into the next stitch.
To bring out the thread and have two loops on its hook.
Make 1 SlSt with these two loops.
Do the same on this whole row and on the next 3 white rows.
▶ The Pompom
➡ With the pompom maker (I used the 25 mm), make a pompom with the white fur yarn.
➡ You can also use another method than the maker pompom. Several videos on youtube present them like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxd7tlkvkAg
🌟 Assembly and finishes 🌟
▶ The pompom
Either sew the pompom to the top of the hat or glue it on.
▶ The rigid lining of the hat
With thin cardboard or a sheet of stiff paper, draw a circle with a radius of 11 cm (or the height of your hat). Cut a triangle inside.
Roll up the sheet on itself to form a cone and adjust it to the width of the hat by inserting it inside. Stabilize the shape by taping the inside.
Take out the cone, secured with the tape, and apply glue especially around the outside and insert it again in the hat so that it sticks to the wall.
▶ The strings to tie the hat
Cast on a chain of 100 sc.
Slip the hook into 1 stitch from the last row and make 1 SlSt.
Make a second chain and attach it to the opposite side of the first in parallel.
Make a double knot at each end of the chains to secure them and cut the excess thread.
There you go, you’re ready to party with your hat on! 🥳
