Row 2: 2 HDC in each stitch around. (16)
Row 3: *HDC, 2 HDC in next stitch* around. (24)

Row 7-14: HDC around. (44) SS in first stitch from previous round. Finish off and weave in ends.
You will use slip stitching to complete both the frosting ring and mouth.
For the white frosting ring around the bottom, join white yarn to back of hat at row 13. SS around. Finish off and weave in ends.
With red yarn, chain 2, 6 SC in second chain from hook. 2 SC in each stitch around. SS in first stitch of row. Finish off, leaving a tail for sewing.
With white yarn, chain 2, 6 SC in second chain from hook. SS in first stitch of row. Finish off, leaving a tail for sewing.
The mouth is slip stitched onto the hat using white yarn. Join at row 10, slip stitch to create a half circle. Finish off and weave in ends. Once the mouth is finished, sew on cheeks and eyes.
For the girl version, tie some ribbon into a bow around a stitch near the top of the hat.
