American Girl Doll Cocktail Hat with Beads

Difficulty level: *** Intermediate

Free Doll Hat Crochet Pattern

Materials:
Red Heart Fashion Crochet Thread, 93% mercerized cotton/7% metallic 100 yards (91 meters), size 5. Color Gold - 1 ball (shop for this yarn here!)
Beads: Matsuno seed beads size 8 (about 450 beads), organdy ribbon

Hook 1.75mm

Gauge: 12 dc = 2" (5 cm)

Special abbreviation:

bhdc = bead half double crochet. To work this, slide a bead up to the loop on the hook, wrap yarn over the hook, insert the hook into the back of the st, put the yarn over the hook and draw a loop through - you now have 3 loops on the hook. Put the yarn over the hook and draw the yarn through all 3 loops. The bead will be fixed to the back side of the crocheted work.

Directions

Set up: String beads on yarn.

TIP: The best way to string the beads is to cut the end of the thread at an angle (making it pointy) and stiffen it with nail polish or super glue and let dry. Use the stiffened end as a needle.
