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. 


This is so cute!

That is so adorable! I don't think I've ever seen a hat like this before :) You should consider putting that second image first, you can really see the pie-y details!
