How to Spruce Up Your Kufi Crochet Beanie Hat

Spring-Kufi-Beanie


With spring officially here, hats make cute accessories for any little girl's whimsical colorful outfits. Here at the HairBow Center, we offer a variety of hats in child and infant sizes. The amount of different ways you can decorate a beanie is endless; You just have to let your creativity out of the bag and go for it!  In this post I'm going to show you how to create three different looks, all of which are easy and will take no time to make. So let's get started!


Boutique Kufi Crochet Beanie


Supplies:

Kufie Crochet Beanie Hat: Turquoise

40" of 1 1/2" Pearl Pink with White Dots Grosgrain

22" of 1 1/2" Pearl Pink with White Dots Grosgrain

5 1/2" of 7/8" Brown Grosgrain

Light Pink Lined Clip

Two Alligator Clips

Double Sided Sticky Tape, or adhesive of your choice

String

Step-One-Supplies


To begin with, measure out your ribbon, and heat seal the ends. We are going to begin by weaving the forty inches of ribbon around the circumference of the Kufi Beanie. I started my weave in the second row of holes from the bottom of the hat. Make sure that your starting point is where you want your embellishment to go, and that the tag is in the back. Continue weaving until you have completed the circumference of your hat.

Step-one-Weaving


Once the weaving process is complete I stretched the hat a lot. I did this to get the right amount of ribbon in the weave of the hat so that it wont be tight or lose it's bubbly look when it is worn. After you've stretched it a bit, use two alligator clips to hold the ends in place. For this particular look, I knotted the ribbon on the front of the hat and used the knot to put my bow on.

Now we are going to take the 22" section of ribbon and make a boutique bow. Lay your ribbon print side down, and loop one end over and glue it to the center. I folded my ribbon in half and creased it so that I would know where the middle was. Make sure when you are making your loop that the ribbon stays print side down when you glue it. Repeat this process for the other side of the ribbon. If you are using double sided sticky tape like I did, it doesn't take a lot. I used small strips and waited to peel the paper backing off until I knew exactly where I wanted to have my ribbon adhered.

Once both sides are adhered your ribbon should look like it's in the shape of a figure eight. bow-step-two


Next take the top of the loops and glue them in the center.

Once both loops are glued, take and gather the ribbon in the middle, and use your string to tie around and secure the center.

Using your 7/8" ribbon create a knot and glue it around the center of your bow.

Take and apply your adhesive to the lined clip and press it to the back of your bow. Then attach the bow to the knot on the hat and you're done. :)

For the simple daisy hat, repeat the weaving process as that from the above tutorial for the Kufi Hat.


Once you are done weaving take your daisy and cut the long stem off of the back.


flower-one


I applied two strips of Double Sided Tape on either side of the stem, closer the the edge of the greenery. Then I took the felt pad and placed it on the back of the daisy.


flower-two


Take and apply adhesive to your lined clip and attach it to the felt circle.


For this hat I didn't knot the ribbon on the front, I wove the ends through to the inside of the hat and taped the ends loosely together and cut off the extra ribbon.


I then stuck the clip through the hat close to the ribbon. After you have done that you will have a cute Simple Daisy Kufi Hat! :)

Take your Kufi Crochet Beanie Hat and the ribbon and repeat the weaving process from the Boutique Crochet Beanie Hat. Secure the ends with the alligator clips.


Take your brown crochet flower and using the left strand of ribbon go up from the bottom and through the hole closest to the center of the the flower.

Repeat the process with the other side of the flower.


crochet-flower-twoPull the flower snug to the beanie then proceed to tie a loose knot in the center of the flower with your ribbon ends.


chrochet-flower-three


Take the end pointing down and weave it through the hole in the center bottom of the flower and then through the beanie. So in the end you should have the ribbon on the inside of the beanie. Take the ribbon at the top and repeat the same process, go through the top center hole and then through the beanie.


chrochet-flower-four


Once the ribbon is on the inside of the hat, I carefully turned the hat inside out, and wove the ends through the hat and taped the ends to the back of the ribbon that shows on the front of the hat.

After that turn the hat right side out and you are done! :)
