Introduction: #Poop HAT
This Hat was one of 3 commissioned by @1cePrime on https://twitch.tv/1ceprime for a charity stream. Two hats were auctioned off (one poop hat and another was a minion inspired hat). Yes, the first Picture is of 1cePrime himself <3 his streaming community and the support they show me!
Step 1: Hat Base-1
The hat Base is started with a basic beanie pattern. I used an I hook and red heart super saver yarn.

sc4 sc2 into one (36)
sc5 sc2 into one (42)
sc6 sc2 into one (48)
sc7 sc 2 into one (54)
sc8 sc2 into one (60)
sc9 sc2 into one (66)
Step 2: HAT BASE-2
Upon reaching 66 to 72 stitches around by increasing, use stitch markers to keep track of starting point and crochet around with HDC until the hat is slightly triple the length you would need for a normal hat. This length will allow you to overlap to make the ridges.
Step 3: HAT BASE-3
Once you have the hat made to length, fold over sections of the hat to make folds. I suggest starting at the top.
Next, take a thread and needle of matching color and stitch the flaps down. and remove pins. make sure all ends are woven in as well.
Step 4: FACE
Now you need to make your face pieces so they can dry while making the topper of the hat.
you can either buy pink felt or you can use all white felt and use some tulip paint to color as i did. (this will make it a little harder to push a needle through, so be careful)
cut out a circle of pink or white felt and t cut out 2 ovals of white felt.
if you use the pink tulip paint, apply a thin coat & remove any extra with a paper towel. set aside to dry.
eyes: carefully draw an oval of black on the white, leaving an edge of white. and design the eyes as you see fit. Keep the black coat thin as well. set aside to dry. Continue on to make the top of the hat.
Step 5: HAT TOP
use an I hook for this as well

Now continue to SC around making a tube. stuff firmly with polyfill fiber as you go.
once you get about 2 feet of length see if you can curl it into a cone shape that will match to the top of the Hat Base. Make longer if needed.
Once tube is long enough to be wrapped into a cone, stitch end shut (this will be the bottom seam)
now, as you re-form the cone shape, pin into shape (safety pins are best for this) Make sure all yarn ends are woven in.
Next, sew together with matching thread.
Step 6: ATTACH FACE & TOP
Pin eyes & nose into place for sewing. Sew them on with matching thread using a quilters stitch.
Then, pin top of hat into place & sew on with matching thread & double check hat to make sure you have removed all pins & everything is attached securely, and all ends are woven in.
Step 7: WEAR
Wear the Hat with Pride or gift it to a friend who could use a #PoopHat or a good laugh!
