Using the worsted weight grey yarn work up an Anita Toque in the beanie style or the slouch style. Then work up the laser applique as follows:
- SS slipstitch
- CH chain
- HDC half double crochet
- DC double crochet
- BLO back loop
- Invisible Join

Round 1 – CH3, in first ch work 12DC, SS to first dc
Round 2 – all in BLO, CH2, 2DC in each stitch around, SS to first dc
Round 3 – CH1, (HDC, 2HDC) around, SS to first hdc, cut yarn leaving enough to sew onto hat, INVISIBLE JOIN
Using light grey sock yarn, embroider the lines onto the hat and laser.
Start the first line at the bottom of the row before you do the post stitches. I do combo of running stitch and back stitch. In this photo I am doing a back stitch after doing a running stitch.
I move up 3 rows for my second line, and 4 rows for my third line. Make sure to not tighten up your embroidery to much as that will severely impact the fit of the hat.
Next add in the random up & down lines!!
Then embroider your laser. I like to do a star motif in the middle and then do circles. But you could do long lines from the center to the edge as well. Your choice! Then sew on your laser with the long tail over the slight seam of the hat and you’re done!
