Crochet Newborn Cabbage Patch Kid Ponytail
Crochet Newborn Cabbage Patch Kid Ponytail is the same pattern as my Crochet Cabbage Patch Kid Newborn Beanie.
I got the idea last night to to make a Crochet Newborn Cabbage Patch Kid Ponytail Beanie! At first I thought that I could add the hair like you would add yarn to a latch hook project but I did not like the results that I was getting.
I decided to try something a little different. Securing the yarn was not completely necessary as it would stay in place once put into a pony tail. Here is what I came up with.

Yarn: Bernat Satin Yarn Sea Shell - You will need a 100g (3.5oz) ball to make this beanie.
- US H8/5.00mm - Used to attach ponytail hair
- No Pull Hair Elastic (Or just a reg elastic)
- Ribbon - Optional
Notes: To work up the Cabbage Patch Kid Beanie you will need to follow the pattern HERE. Below are the instructions to add the ponytail hair.
Adding the ponytail hair..
Cut strips of yarn between 28-30" long. I cut 144 strips.
To attach strips of yarn to hat, insert your hook from the top of the hat towards the opening of the hat in between the hdc stitches above your loop stitches as shown below.
Place 3 strips of yarn an your hook and draw up a loop as shown below.
Holding onto one side of the strip continue drawing up the other side making sure they are evenly centered.
Once you've added all your strips of yarn, lay your hat flat and trim ends so they are all even.
To add the elastic, turn your hat upside down so all your strips are hanging down to the ground. (I had to have someone hold the hat for me) Take your no pull hair elastic and place it around your ponytail.
Add ribbon by making a bow to hide your elastic.
