Attach Bulky weight yarn and SC around the edge of entire goggle, fasten off and weave in ends.


Now you will want to Surface Slip Stitch the circles to make the "eye holes."  Surface slip stitch along the the same place as your single crochets that were made around the edge of the goggles. 



Sew the goggles on to the front of the hat. With your tapestry needle, sew just under the top of the SC stitches around the edge of your goggles.


Attach bulky yarn one more time to make the "strap." Begin in the middle edge on one side of the goggles and surface slip stitch around the hat the other side of the goggles. Follow along one row of DC's to make sure your line is consistent.



Now you are ready to take flight!

  14. First of all I would like to start with I love your patterns and they are so easy to follow, I have been happy with all the hats I have made from your website but I have a quick question......I was wondering how come the child pattern for this hat only goes to row 15 but if you make the child minion it goes to 20. Is there some reason why different child hats have different row counts? Thank You again for sharing all your wonderful patterns :-)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi Barbara, the Minion hat is worked in HDC and this hat is DC. So you don't need as many rows to achieve the length. Thanks for the compliments! Glad you are enjoying my patterns!

  32. This is adorable. Thanks for the pattern (especially in the varying sizes)!. I made one for my nephew's 2nd birthday, it turned out great! I had some extra white yarn that is bubbly/varying thickness, sort of like Lion Brand's "homespun" yarns.. I used that on the bottom edge and it looks even more like a woolly "lambskin" lining!
