Crochet Pigtail Hat Tutorial with Video

My daughter loves to wear pigtails so I made her this hat so she can wear a hat and have pigtails! I made it with a H hook and medium worsted yarn. This crochet hat can be done in all sizes, just adjust the hook size and length accordingly. If you need more assistance I uploaded an easy to follow along video!

H Hook

Pigtail Hat Tutorial

sl st=slip stitch
sc=single crochet
dc=double crochet
If you make this for a larger or smaller hat then go by how long the inches are above with the hook size. For example if you make it for a larger hat then you may need to add an extra round of just dc or so to make it long enough or you may need to omit a dc round for a smaller hat, so it's not too big. 
I made this child 3-10 yrs, head cir., 19"-20 1/2 "", hat length= 7.5"=H hook, Adjust the hook size for different sizes.

I made two of these for my 3 yr old twin granddaughters. Very easy, basic pattern. I added eyelash yarn as trim around the pony holes and in the band. My granddaughters loved them! Thanks so much for sharing!

Hello! I have a Caron Chunky Cupcake that I'd like to use to make this, so the yarn is size 5. The yarn label recommends a K hook. I want to make this pattern for a child, what size hook would you recommend so I can use the larger yarn? Thank you!

I'd like to make this with a Caron Chunky Cake (size 5) yarn, for a child. What size hook would you recommend to make the pattern work with a slightly larger yarn? Thank you!

I used a H hook for this pattern for a child with medium worsted yarn, I would maybe go up a one hook size, so an I hook
