    What an absolutely smashing top hat you have there my good man! Tally Ho!

    (I say, I do wish my own top hat was as spiffing as that)

    OOPS – Found a typo on row 5 of the pattern (now corrected on post) – last instruction was for “1 sc” – that should have been ” ch 1″. Sorry if that messed anyone up.

    Thanks for the pattern. I’m confused about row 4: 2 sc, 2 sc inc around (24 sts) I’m lost. what does it mean? I thought maybe you meant exactly as row 3 (1 sc, 2 sc inc) but that will be 27 sts not 24. and if it means 2 sc in each sc around that also won’t equal 24 sts but 36. Please help?

      Hi Zahra – Sorry for the confusion, I’m new to pattern writing and it’s a challenge to explain some details. That row means to do 2 sc (each in their own stitch) and then in the next/third stitch, do 2sc in the same stitch thus making an increase. So, another way to write that would be: 1 sc, 1 sc, 2sc in the same stitch, and repeat across the row. I hope that’s more clear. If not, let me know and I’ll try again! =) ~Kristen

    […] truly classy. If I’d had time to find a monocle and cane, I would have added those, too. The top hat pattern is an original from Monkey Waffles and, like the wings, I just want to make dozens and put them on […]
