Frog Princess & Prince Hats

December 2014
Aran (8 wpi) ?
Hat measures 171⁄4 (19, 201⁄2, 213⁄4, 23)" (44 [48.5, 52, 55, 58.5] cm) in circumference. Because this hat has a lining and is extra thick, you should allow for the outer circumference to be 1–2" (2.5–5 cm) larger than the circumference of your head.

You know the story—a frog sweet-talks the princess into kissing him. Just how did that happen? Confidence! There’s something very attractive about those who believe in themselves. Wear this hat and be your own prince (or princess) of potential!

There is a mistake in the lining directions for sizes M, L, and XL, round 16(17, 18) should read: Esc in next 2 sts, esc2tog over next 2 sts, rep from around- 24 sts.

Sizes I/9 (5.5 mm) large hook; H/8 (5 mm) medium hook; and F/6 (4 mm) small hook. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

First 5 rnds of Hat = 41⁄4” (11 cm) in diameter. With largest hook, 121⁄2 sts and 12 rnds in esc pattern = 4” (10 cm).

Stitch markers.
Yarn needle.
Quilting pins (large heads).
30 mm (11⁄8”) split pupil safety eyes in gold or color of your choice.
Small amount of polyester fiberfill to stuff eyes.
