Free Crochet Pattern: Hamburger Hat


For this pattern I played around with different hook sizes and found that simply changing the hook size (but using the same pattern) works perfectly for changing the size of the hat. Listed below is the gauge for each size, please check your gauge as I crochet tightly and you may need to adjust your hook to get the correct gauge. 

Thanks so much for stopping by to check out this pattern!

Toppings:
For these additions, be sure you are using the same size hook as the hat you made.

Tomatoes:
Add as many tomatoes as you like and space them how you wish, I used 3 tomatoes in my example and spaced them roughly 10-15 stitches apart.

Row 1: Using Holly Berry, join with sl st to any hdc post from row 15. Ch 4, sk 3 posts. Around the next post work the following: [tr, ch 3, tr, ch 4], sk 3 posts, sl st to the next post. Turn. (2 tr, 11 ch)
Row 2: Turn, work 5 sc over the ch 4. Sc in top of tr, work 4 sc over the ch 3, sc in top of tr, work 5 sc over the last ch 4. Fasten off and knot these two ends together.

Now sew in your ends under the row of sc's back & forth to help stiffen this edge of the tomato. This will help your tomato keep it's shape.  

Onions:
In my example I used three different size onions, below I'll list each and you can decide which you would like to use. You may place your onions anywhere you please, I placed mine a couple stitches under each tomato so they would look layered.

Large Onion: Using white, join with sl st to any hdc post from row 15. Ch 20, sk 7 posts, sl st to next post. Turn and work 25 sc over your ch. Turn and sl st across each sc. Fasten off. Using the ends, sew the onion edge to the hat and then sew the ends under the row of sc's like you did for the tomato. 

Medium Onion: Using white, join with sl st to any hdc post from row 15. Ch 15, sk 5 posts, sl st to next post. Turn and work 20 sc over your ch. Turn and sl st across each sc. Fasten off. Using the ends, sew the onion edge to the hat and then sew the ends under the row of sc's like you did for the tomato.  

Small Onion: Using white, join with sl st to any hdc post from row 15. Ch 10, sk 4 posts, sl st to next post. Turn and work 15 sc over your ch. Turn and sl st across each sc. Fasten off. Using the ends, sew the onion edge to the hat and then sew the ends under the row of sc's like you did for the tomato.
