Mickey and Minnie Mouse Crochet Hat Pattern


Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is my 3 year olds new favorite show and the inspiration for these crochet hats! I am sharing the pattern for newborn size, but will give you tips on how to make them in larger sizes.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse Crochet Hats
Size: Newborn

Materials:
- Medium worsted weight yarn in black, red and pink
- Size H (5.0) Crochet Hook
- Tapestry Needle
- Two 1" white buttons for Mickey hat, 1/2" or 1/4" white buttons for Minnie hat and bow.

Hat Pattern:
Note: Always begin your round in same stitch as your joining chain
Magic Ring, chain 1
10 HDC in magic ring, join to first HDC, ch 1
Round 2: 2 HDC in each around (20 HDC), join, chain 1
Round 3: 2 HDC, HDC in next, repeat around (30 HDC), join, chain 1
Round 4: 2 HDC, HDC in next 2, repeat around (40 HDC), join, chain 1
Round 5-9: HDC in each around (40 HDC)
Round 10-14: HDC in each around with red yarn for Mickey or pink for Minnie (40 HDC), fasten off, weave in ends.

Sew on two white buttons for Mickey Hat and smaller 1/4-1/2 inch white buttons to create polkadots for Minnie hat. I used six 1/4" buttons for Minnie's bow and nine 1/2" buttons for the bottom of the Minnie hat.



Ears (make 2):
Magic ring, chain 1
12 HDC in magic ring, pull tight, join to first HDC, chain 1
Round 2: 2 HDC in each stitch around (24 HDC), join, chain 1
Round 3: 2 SC, SC in next, repeat around (36 SC), fasten off but leave long tail for sewing onto hat
Sew ears between rows 3 and 6
*Make two ears and sew together for thicker, sturdier ears. I did this with the Mickey hat, but not for Minnie.




Minnie's Bow:
Chain 16,
Row 1: HDC in second chain from hook, SC in next 14, chain 1, turn
Row 2-5: HDC across (15 HDC)
At the end of row 5, do not turn, continue to SC around edges, join to first SC in row 5. Faston off, weave in ends.
- Scrunch the middle of the bow accordion style  and with a tapestry needle, sew yarn through the middle. - With long tail, wrap yarn the middle approx. 10-15 times. Tie off, but leave a tail for sewing onto hat.
I sewed the middle of the bow to the top center of the hat and also sewed the bow to the ears.



For bigger sizes:
Note: I have not tested the bigger patterns but it is what I use for basic increases. 

0-3 Months: 
Follow instructions above till Round 4
Round 5: 2 HDC, HDC in next 7, repeat around (45 HDC)
Round 6-14: HDC in each around (45 HDC)

3-6 Months:
Follow instructions above till Round 4
Round 5: 2 HDC, HDC in next 3, repeat around (50 HDC)
Round 6-15: HDC in each around (50 HDC)

6-9 Months:
Follow instructions above till Round 4
Round 5: 2 HDC, HDC in next 3, repeat around (50 HDC)
Round 6: 2 HDC, HDC in next 9, repeat around (55 HDC)
Round 7-16: HDC in each around (55 HDC)


To increase ear size, continue with Round 3 of the ear pattern above until they look proportional to the hat.
To increase bow size, increase the number of starting chains until length desired and then continue with rows of HDC's until it is as big as you would like it.

  29. Has this pattern been tested before? By row 5, when I fold it in half, it looks like a half folded circle that keeps getting bigger and bigger.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello! The hat should start to curve down by round 5. Although, it is possible that it may appear to be flat if you lay it down and spread it out. I have had at least 15 people e-mail me with pictures and notes saying the pattern works great. Did you end up continuing past round 5? If so, I am curious to hear if it turned out ok. Let me know where you think you are getting hung up and maybe I can help :o) -Sarah

    I am your newest follower.
    Beautiful surprise to see these two cute MMouse beanies are also a tutorial...thanks so much as they are perfect for a little gift I have to do for a friends new grand-daughter that will be arriving soon, very soon.
    I'm off to have a look around your blog now but for starters this is amazing.

    Keep well

    Amanda :-)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ahhh!! I have all the parts completed perfectly (to the one with a flat circle when folded...have u checked ur stitch count and made sure ur not stitching too loose? I had to add a round or four lol. I am a tight stitcher. I just counted around smd made sure to keep the increase to 10 stitches perr round as the original pattern suggested. I added started right before the heck in every stitch instructions and did 2hdc in next stitch, 1hdc in next three* repeat around and u can just add a hdc more between each 2hdc to keep enlarging)
    my problem now is?!?? I dint know how to attach ears properly!! Its been 20 years since I last hooked until I ran across some old yarn bagged up a few weeks ago. It was sellnit on ebay or make something. :) now I'm ADDING to my stash and hubby is shaking his head :)
    So. Ive never done ears and there are no instructions :(

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh wow. I just scrolled and noticed the size increase!!! Good to know my instincts were spot on!!! Darn these ears though!! Lol. (Tip: I sprayed s little starch on mine. The circle is so well designed its a stand on its own ANYWAY but not knowing how they will act once I figure out how to attach instiffened them a tad)

  40. Sarah,

    1. just get any plain hat pattern for the bigger sizes that you want, its not difficult a pattern to rescale, its just black with a few pink rows at the bottom! I have only been crocheting for a few months and i figured it out pretty easy as it only uses one stitch and it is a simple yet effective pattern! I have made several of these for people, the youngest being a 2 yr old and everyone including me loves them! :-)

I really want the Minnie one in a size 0-3 for my sister's soon-to-be daughter and don't know the first thing about knitting or crocheting!

  70. Thank you for this pattern. It is by far the best of any I have looked at. I have used this pattern to create a variety of hats for my granddaughter who is 3 months, including the Minnie hat, but the best of all was a baby goose hat that is the sweetest thing ever. Her father calls her "Little Goose" so I had to make something. I wish I knew how to send you a pic of it. BTW, I have never responded in a comment ever to anyone before but I could not resist sending to you. Thanks again. My next hat using your pattern is going to be an owl hat with a sleeping owl on one side and an awake eyed owl on the other.

  71. I'm sorry if I missed this tip somewhere in the comments; I skimmed through them and didn't see it. I made the Mickey Mouse hat for my nephew, and I noticed that if you just do each of the 4 ears to Round 2, and then stitch Round 3 with 2 ears together (to make them doubled up) it works great!

    Thanks so much for the pattern! :)

    1. I found this site a few months ago and it has the pattern on it for a larger size. It's very easy too! I made it for my 5yr old, whose head measures 19 inches, and it's slightly big on her. You could use the same pattern, but crochet a slightly tighter stitch to make it smaller.

  76. I made this for my 4 month old and my 3 year old. For the 3 year old, I took the 6-9 month pattern and used a larger hook then just measured for size. It was so much easier than many of the other hats I have made. They love them. Thanks so much!!

  77. I'm new at this, I don't understand in the pattern it says for round 4:2HDC,HDC in next2, repeat around. So do you do the same as in round 3 I guess I don't know want in next 2 means Janet

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Next two means the next 2 stitches, so it would be Round 4: 2 HDC in first stitch, HDC in 2nd & 3rd stitches, 2HDC in 4th, HDC in 5th&6th, repeating around the hat.

  78. HELP! I have been crocheting since I was in 3rd grade, and am now 50, but I haven't figured this out jusing half double crochets. The way I am doing it, just keeps adding loops on my hook. I was thinking maybe it is supposed to be regular double crochets. any help?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. to make a hdc you do a yarn over, then insert your hook into the specified stitch, pull up a loop, then yarn over again and pull through all of the loops on your hook.

  79. Hi y'all! Well, I was fine up until I had to make the ears! When I get to row 3 I am doing 2 SC in one st, then a SC in the next st, then 2 SC in the st after that, then 1 and so on until I get to 36 SC which is fine, but somehow when I repeat for row 4 I am coming up with way more than 36 SC's and for the life of me I can't figure out why. Also, I have no idea how to attach the ears onto the hat. Are their directions for that? Do you hook them on, crochet them on or sew them on using your tail and a tapestry needle? Thanks for the pattern!

  83. I have crocheted the mickey and minnie hats and they turned out adorable. My only problem is the ears do not stand up on the mickey hat, they flop down. The minnie hat ears stand up because of the bow reinforcing. What should I do about mickey's?

  86. I don't know if this will help anyone. I have been crocheting for 20 years and all I did to make the pattern for a 2-3 year old is use a size K hook and did it following the 6-9 pattern (loosely, very loosely!) On the ears I did the 3 rows and with the row with sc i did that row holding the 2 ear pieces back to back. I could not get mine to stand up so I left that open for 4 stitches to have more to sew onto the hat. I also did not add buttons, cause a mom of 5 I dont like choking hazards, I just made a magic circle with 8 sc done tightly. Anyway super cute pattern, Hope that helps.

  115. Just recently finished a mickey and minnie hat for my niece's kids!! I LOVED them. She LOVED them!.. And now I've posted them. I kept the buttons off, for fear of choking; and I changed up the bottom edge a bit, because I was not able to fit them personally. I had to mail the hats to them, and just prayed they would fit!... But if you want to take a peek, I just posted the pics today! Thanks so much for sharing your pattern! ~tina

  125. This is so cute! Just a question when making larger sizes, for eg the 6-9mo size. The last instruction is round 7-16, do I do all those rounds in black, then add the the pink/red, or do I do the black up to round 11 and then add the colour up to round 16?
    I'm a new crocheter so not sure what to do, thanks :) love your blog!

  137. I was wondering what the magic ring is. I tried to click on the link but all links on this page redirects me to a page "for security scan". Thought maybe I had a virus so ran a complete scan myself and showed nothing, had my computer expert son look at it, and he said not my computer. Anyway, I still need to know what a magic ring is. I want to make these for my grandbabies.

  138. Hi there. Super cute pattern!! I was wondering how you get the ears to stick up on the hat and not just flop over where they have been sewn on? If anyone has any suggestions that would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance!

    1. I think she said that she sewed two ears together to make it sturdier. Also, someone said on the last row, they crocheted around a pipe cleaner to add extra reenforcement. Hope this helps!

  147. This is just absolutely adorable. I made Minnie for my two year old great grand daughter and everyone just loved it. I want to thank you sooooooooooooo much for the magic circle beginning. In all my nearly 70 years of crocheting I had not heard of the magic circle. So much of my crocheting is just looking at something or a very basic pattern that I will modify & adjust to what I want. I showed my grand daughter-in-law the magic circle and she was so excited like me. Thank you thank you so much for the pattern and especially the magic circle. I'll be watching for more from you.

  151. I loved these hats.. soo cute. I'm not a big follower of patterns. I tend to "follow the picture" and make it from there. Thats what I djd did with these. I used a Tunisia simple stitch in the round and changed colors half way. Then started to decrease by twos as I went around. Then either deceased till no stitches left or single stitched closed at top. I then made half circles for ears. That was the hardest part...stupid ears..lol... then did the buttons. Thanks sooo much for the inspiration.
