Stitch Instructions and Definitions

Working between a stitch is inserting the hook in the space between each stitch.

Single Crochet Decrease
Insert the hook through the first stitch, wrap the yarn over and pull through, there are 2 loops on the hook, insert the hook through the next stitch, wrap the yarn over and pull through, there are 3 loops on the hook, wrap the yarn over and pull through all 3 loops to complete the single crochet decrease.

Hat Side (CupCake Paper)
Row 1: Work 14 Foundation Half Double Crochet

Row 2-46: HDC in the loop below the top of the stitch (this creates the rib effect) in each stitch across. Work the last HDC below the two loops on the last stitch of the edge. This will create a solid edge.

Sew the two edges together working through the same loop that was used to create the rib stitch on one side and through the top stitches on the opposite side. This will push the stitches to the front.

Hat Top (Frosting)
Note: You will ignore instructions to "CH 1" and "join with the beginning stitch" if you choose to use the continual round.
Chain 4, join.

Round 1: CH 1, Work 10 HDC through the loop, join with the beginning stitch. At this point you can use joined rounds or work in a continual round. If you choose a continual round, you will want to use a yarn marker. (10 HDC total)

Round 2: CH 1, work 2 DC between each stitch around, join with the beginning stitch. (20 HDC total)

Round 3: Ch 1, *work 1 HDC between ea space, work 2 HDC between ea space. Continue around from * join with the beginning stitch. (30 HDC total)

Round 4: Ch 1, *work 1 HDC between ea space around, join with the beginning stitch. (30 HDC total)

Round 5: Ch 1, *work 1 HDC between ea space, work 2 HDC between ea space. Continue around from * join with the beginning stitch. (45 HDC total)

Round 6: Ch 1, *work 1 HDC between ea space around. Continue around from * join with the beginning stitch. (45 HDC total)

Round 7: Ch 1, *work 1 HDC between ea of the next 2 stitches, work 2 HDC between the next stitch. Continue around from * join with the beginning stitch. (60 HDC total)

Round 8: Ch 1, *work 1 HDC between ea stitch around, Continue around from * join with the beginning stitch. (60 HDC total)

Round 9-18: Ch 1, *work 1 HDC between ea stitch around, Continue around from * join with the beginning stitch. (60 HDC total)

If you worked in the continual round, skip 1 stitch and work a slip stitch in the next. This will even off the round so there is not a ridge.

Edging - Scallop
Working between the stitches, work 1 SC, skip 2 spaces, *work 5 triple crochet in the next space. Work a single crochet in the same space as the triple crochet. (this is folding 5 triple crochet to the back creating a 3D raised effect) skip 2 spaces. Repeat around from *. Join with the beginning SC.

Cherry
CH 3, join with the beginning chain.

Round 1: CH, Work 6 SC through the chain. Work in a continual round. (6 single crochet)

Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around. (12 single crochet)

Round 3-4: 1 SC in each stitch around (12 single crochet)

Round 5: Work 7 Single Crochet Decrease. See stitch definitions above. Fill with stuff after the 3rd SC DEC and continue around. Secure the stitch and sew the top shut. Pull a loop up with the crochet hook and chain 4. Slip stitch back down the chain 3. Slip stitch and secure. Knot and Sew in the tail.
