Joey Cook Fan Girl Hat Pattern
Joey Cook Fan Girl Hat – Showing the love!
So there’s this amazingly talented girl on American Idol this year. She may be new to America, but she certainly isn’t new to many of us here in Woodbridge, VA! She attended the same school and participated in the same music program as my son. First time I saw Joey Cook perform on stage at school, I was amazed by her talent. I am no less amazed to see her on AI. She is quirky and fun and her talents command your attention every time she steps on stage. I’m excited to see where her AI journey takes her.
Joey’s blue hair quickly grabbed the attention of many of her fans…both new and old! I couldn’t resist creating something fun…ummm…I was a bit surprised at the interest it generated. Way more than I can keep up with, so I decided it would be best to share the pattern with you all!

Joey Cook Fan Girl Hat
Any worsted weight Black Yarn
(You will need 2 skeins because this is worked in double strand. I made three hats out of 2 skeins)
Worsted Weight Turquoise/ blue yarn for hair Approx. 2 oz.
Tapestry Needle (For weaving in ends.)
4 inches = 10 stitches
4 inches = 6 rows
Work project using double strands of black yarn. Chain 2 does not count as a stitch.
Start: Magic Circle: Chain 2. Work 10 DC into the circle and pull together. Join at the top of the first DC. Chain 2.
Row 1: 2 DC in each stitch around. Join at the top of the first DC. Chain 2. (20)
Row 2: 2 DC in first stitch, 1 DC in next stitch. Repeat around. Join at the top of the first DC. Chain 2. (30)
Row 3: 2 DC in first stitch, 1 DC in next 2 stitches. Repeat around. Join at the top of the first DC. Chain 2. (40)
Row 4: 2 DC in first stitch, 1 DC in next 3 stitches. Repeat around. Join at the top of the first DC. Chain 2. (50)
Row 5: 2 DC in first stitch, 1 DC in next 4 stitches. Repeat around. Join at the top of the first DC. Chain 2. (60)
Row 6-9: 1 DC in each stitch around. (60)
Row 10: (Work this row in front loop only.) 2 DC in first stitch, 1 DC in next 3. Repeat around. (75)
Row 11: 2 DC in first stitch, 1 DC in next 5. Repeat 12 times. 2 DC in next stitch, 1 DC in next 2 stitches. Join at the top of the first DC. Chain 1. (88)
Row 12: 1 SC in each stitch around. Join in the top of the first SC. Fasten and weave in ends. (88)
Cut 176, 18 inch strands of blue yarn. On the back loop of Row10 attach 2 strands at a time to each stitch.
Fold 2 strands in half and slip the loop side through the stitch. Pull the ends through the loop and tighten to create hair.
Once all of the “hair” is attached to the hat, place the hat on a mannequin or a roll of paper towels in a tilted back position like it would set on your head and cut the strands to shape the hair.
Bangs: The first 12 stitches along the front of the hat will be the bangs. (If you place the hat on your head you can get an idea of how long you will want to cut them.
Sides and Back: While the hat is tilted decide on your length. Start in the back and cut a section the length you want. Use that as your guide and cut around to the front on both sides.

I can’t resist sharing this photo of some of Joey’s biggest fans sporting the Fan Girl hats! Joey told us this, ” My grandfather is the reason I kept pursuing music after everyone told me to grow up and get a real job.He’s the reason I auditioned for the show in the first place. Thank you for being the best PePaw in the world “
