Introduction: Baby Pie Hat

A less messy way for a baby to wear their pie.  This hat has a hat crown diameter of 5 inches and a height of 7 inches. It should fit a baby around 5-6 months. 
Stitches- double crochet, chain, bobble, slip stitch, joining colors
Size hook- 5.50 mm 
Yarn colors- red and light brown
Other- scissors and a yarn needle. 

Step 1: Making the Ring

With the red yarn: Chain 4 and then slip stitch in the first chain to make a circle.

Step 2: Beginning the Rows

Row 1: Chain 3 and then double crochet 10 stitches into the ring.

Step 3: Row 2

Row 2:Chain 3, bobble stitch, chain 1, dc 2 in next stitch, bobble stitch, chain 1, dc 2 in the next stitch, etc.

Step 4: Row 3

Row 3: Chain 3, bobble stitch, 1 chain, 1 dc, bobble, 1 chain, 1 dc, etc.

Step 5: Row 4

Row 4: Chain 3, dc, dc, bobble stitch, chain 1, dc, dc, etc.

Step 6: Measuring Hat Crown

Hat should measure 5 inches.

Step 7: Joining Colors

Join colors, chain 3 and crochet 1 dc in every stitch making a slip stitch at the end of each row and beginning each row with a chain of 3 until you get your desired length.  I stopped at 7 inches.

Step 8: Making the Pie Crust

Chain a chain long enough to fit the circumference of your hat and chain a few extra stitches.   At the end of your chain turn and bobble stitch in every stitch.  

Chain about 8 more chains that are about  5-6 inches long.

Step 9: Final Touches

Sew in the chains to make it look like a lattice crust.  after sewing in the chains sew in the bobble stitched chain right underneath where the red stitches ended to make it look like the crust.
