Crochet Cabbage Patch Kid Newborn Beanie
Crochet Cabbage Patch Kid Newborn Beanie was a request from a friend. She asked me if I could make one and I accepted the challenge.
For this pattern you will need to know how to work up the loop stitch (lp st). You can find a great video tutorial for this stitch from Planet June on YouTube HERE. My loops were made by wrapping the yarn around my index finger just as shown in the video tutorial.

You will need 6 scrap strips about 8″ long, these strips will be used to tie the pig tails together. (You will only need 4 if you are braiding your ties.
Cut strips 18″ long. I cut 40 strips for each side. Take your 40 strips and find the center, using one of your scrap strips, tie it around the center of your strips in a double knot making sure your scrap strip has long enough tails to use to attach the pig tails to the hat. To attach the pig tails to the hat, lay your hat flat and mark on each side of the fold where you would like your braids. Use the scrap ties you tied around the center of your pig tails to attach them by tying them around the post of a hdc stitch on the hat.
Tie one of your scrap strips around the center of the pig tail and one at the bottom on both sides making sure that both sides are done even or you can braid the ties and use a strip to tie the braids off at the end.
Add ribbon bows around the top of pig tails.
