A Variation of the Devil's Horns Hat

A friend of a friend decided he NEEDED his own devil's horns hat. So what can I say...I made him one, this time it's a beanie.

It's a variation of my Jack Skellington hat from November. I figured if anyone was interested, I'd post this pattern here as well. My friend Nicole supplied the yarn, so I'm listing that as she gave it to me.

G sized hook
H sized hook
Yarn needle
Small amount of Fiber Fill
1 skein Caron One Pounder 100% Acrylic in black (#503)--you won't need anywhere close to 1 pound of yarn; in this case, the color was more important than the type of yarn.
1 skein Lion Brand Suede in Rose (#140)

Hat
With the H hook and working with the black yarn, ch 4, join with sl st to first ch to form ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 2(counts as first dc),9 dc in ring. Join with sl st to top of beginning dc (10 dc).
Rnd 2: Ch 2, hdc in same st, (2 hdc in next st) around. Join (20 hdc).
Rnd 3: Ch 2, 2 hdc in next st, (hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st) around. Join (30 hdc).
Rnd 4: Ch 2, hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st, (hdc in next 2 st, 2 hdc in next st) around. Join (40 hdc).
Rnd 5: Ch 2, hdc in next 2 st, 2 hdc in next st, (hdc in next 3 st, 2 hdc in next st) around. Join (50 hdc).
Rnd 6: Ch 2, hdc in next 3 st, 2 hdc in next st, (hdc in next 4 st, 2 hdc in next st) around. Join (60 hdc).
Rnd 7: Ch 2, hdc in each st around. Join (60 hdc).
Rnd 8: Ch 2, hdc in next 4 st, 2 hdc in next st, (hdc in next 5 st, 2 hdc in next st) around. Join.
Rnd 9-10: Repeat round 7.
Rnd 11: Ch 2, hdc in next 5 st, 2 hdc in next st, (hdc in next 6 st, 2 hdc in next st) around. Join.
Rnd 12: Repeat round 7.
Rnd 13-17: Ch 2, hdc in back loop of next st, (hdc in front loop of next st, hdc in back loop of next st, hdc in both loops) around. Join.
Rnd 18: Ch 2, hdc in each st around. Join.
Rnd 19: Switch to the rose suede and ch 1, hdc in same st as join and in each st around for the trim. Join. Fasten off, weave in ends.

Devil's Horns
Leave a length of several inches of the black before starting (this will be what you use to attach the horn to the hat). With the G hook, chain 12 and form loop with a slip stitch with second chain from hook end. Ch 1. Do not turn.

Row 1-2: Chain 1 SC in each stitch and connect at the end with a slip stitch. Ch 2. Do not turn.

Rows 3-4: Switch to the rose suede. 1 HDC in the front loop of each SC of previous row. Connect at the end with a slip stitch. Ch 2. Do not turn.

Rows 5-8: Repeat the previous row but decrease by 2 HDC (one at the beginning and one at the end). Connect at the end with a slip stitch. Ch 2. Do not turn.

Row 9: Finish off the horn with 2-3 slip stitches (your choice) so the horn is closed at the top point. Finish off yarn. Make 2. Since you’re ending at the tips, use the yarn needle to weave in the loose ends. Any extra yarn doesn’t need to trimmed off: just stuff it back up inside the horn.

Fill each horn with stuffing. To make the horns stand up, pack them tight. You can use the wrong end of a crochet hook to pack it into the tip of the horn. Make them as firm as you want. Using extra black yarn and the needle, attach the horns to the top of the hat.



I realize this isn't the greatest picture in the world, but I was feeling lazy tonight and took this picture with my cell phone instead of dragging out my camera and card reader. I'm still goofing with the horns. If I had made this hat for myself, I probably would have put them closer together, but Nicole told me her friend wanted a hat more like what I had made for her. (They really don't look like small bunny ears in real life!)
