Extra Toppings! How to Make Your Pizza Slouchy Hat into an “Everything” Pizza
Due to popular demand, I am finally releasing patterns for EXTRA pizza toppings for my Pizza Slouchy Hat! When I first released the pattern for my pizza hat in August, I was so happy to see how well received it was! Pizza and crocheting are two of my absolute favorite things, so combining the two is a lifelong dream for me! Along with all the love the hat received, I also got lots of great ideas for extra toppings I could add to the hat – everything from sausage to peppers to pineapple! And, just to be extra controversial, I’ve even decided to add an anchovy pattern here! Rejoice, lovers of anchovies on pizza! To anyone who doesn’t like anchovies on their pizza, feel free to “pick” that topping off your hat (i.e, don’t sew it on)!
The patterns below are for peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives, ham, sausage, anchovies, pineapple, and tomatoes. Do you have ideas for other toppings? Let me know!
I decided to make five to six of the smaller toppings (peppers, onions, etc.), two to four of the larger toppings (pineapple, sausage) and only two of the really large tomato slices. But the great thing about crocheting is that you can get creative and make as many toppings as you’d like, and arrange them to your liking, as well!
