Row 17: FLO [Inc] 27 times (54 sts)

Rows 18-19: 54 sc (54 sts)


Fasten off, weave in ends.

Stuff the witches hat and insert rattle. Do not stuff too firmly.




Base-


Using black yarn:


Row 1: MR. 6 sc into centre of ring. (6 sts)

Row 2: [Inc] 6 times (12 sts)

Row 3: [Sc, inc] 6 times (18 sts)

Row 4: [2 sc, inc] 6 times (24 sts)


Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.




Strap-


Using purple yarn(or colour of choice):


Leave long starting tail. Ch 26. Pull last ch tightly to fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.




Buckle-


Using yellow yarn:


Ch 6. Sc into 4th ch from hook.

Ch 1, skip 1 ch space, sc into the last ch.


Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.




Assembly-


Thread the strap through the buckle between the last sc and the end ch. You should go up into the buckle on one side and down the other side.




Using the two ends of the strap, insert your hook into the back of the witches hat, row 15/16, pull both ends through the same hole and secure with a double knot.


I also did this for the buckle yarn ends, instead of pulling through the same hole, I pulled one end through a hole below the strap and one above the strap, then secured it with a double knot.


If you wish, you can sew the buckle and strap in place.


Make sure your buckle is at the front of the hat.



Sew the base onto the witches hat, going through the back loops of row 17.

Try to line the buckle up with the middle of the teething ring.


I only skipped 2 sts for where I placed the teething ring to secure it in place. Weave in ends.




This next step is optional.


Cobweb steps:

Using embroidery thread and needle, make 5 long 'stems', coming from the same centre place.

Then come up close to the outer 'stem' approximately 1/3 of the way up, and then go underneath the next 'stem' and wrap the thread around the 'stem' again to create a knot, repeat this until the end. The last 'stem' does not need the knot, just insert the needle very close to the outer edge of it.

Repeat again, approximately 2/3 of the way up.

Weave ends in.

Hopefully, the pictures will help!
