Moogle Crochet Hat

My husband loves Final Fantasy games so I decided to crochet him this moogle hat. Moogles are so cute :) This hat is more of a guy's hat than a girl's hat. I don't have a guy mannequin head though and the hubby wasn't in the mood to model LOL. What do you think? Here is a pic of what a Moogle looks like for those of you who don't know. This person drew a vary good pic of it. Click Here for Pic Moogles are from the game Final Fantasy :)

Moogle Hat
by: AprilDraven

for personal use only

Gauge: 4 inches = 13 stitches and 14 rows
My head size is 22 and a half inches around so adjust your hook size accordingly. Remember yarn stretches a little bit so this hat will fit inches bigger too.

Yarn: regular 4 ply worsted yarn

H hook

Abbreviations:
Rnd: round
Sc: single crochet
Ss: slip stitch
FO: Fasten off

*NOTE: use a marker and work in rounds*

With Main color ch 1 or form magic circle

Rnd 1: 8 sc in ring
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (16)
Rnd 3: *1 sc, 2 sc in next sc* rep from * to * around (24)
Rnd 4: *2 sc, 2 sc in next sc* rep from * to * around (32)
Rnd 5: *3 sc, 2 sc in next sc* rep from * to * around (40)
Rnd 6: *4 sc, 2 sc in next sc* rep from * to * around (48)
Rnd 7: *5 sc, 2 sc in next sc* rep from * to * around (56)
(In round 8, 27 sc then start the chart or if you want it farther down on the hat wait until Round 12 to start the chart. I wish I would have started on round 12.)

Rnd 8: sc in each sc around
Rnd 9: *6 sc, 2 sc in next sc* rep from * to * around (64)
Rnd 10: sc in each sc around
Rnd 11: *7 sc, 2 sc in next sc* rep from * to * around (72)
RND 12-34: sc in each sc around (19 rounds)
on the 34th round switch to trim color if you want.

*Note: you might have to do a little stretching at the end. to even the hat out. Usually it gets better after it is washed :)*

Thanks! He is great :) He gave the web cam to me early too so I could play with it. Now I just have to get some time where my daughter isn't screaming for something. LOL or just record that too haha

Another great pattern! Sorry 2 hear that your etsy shop isn't doing to well. Have you looked into Artfire.com? It's another storefront site. You can sell stuff for free w/ a basic membership or upgrade to a premium account for $12 a month. That's it. No hidden or listing fees at all. I'm considering it w/ all this crochet stuff I have stockpiled around here. Need to get a mannequin head 1st though!

Thanks I will look into that :)

Loosing Weight is not an easy task. Many people trying to lose weight have been on numerous diets and have tried just about every "fad diet" that has been around.
