Amigurumi Top Hat Pattern

The Corpse Groom is shaped the same way as the Corpse Bride. Click here for instructions on how to construct the head and the body of our ghoulish bride and groom!

The only difference is that the Corpse Groom is wearing a top hat, and it’s really easy to make. The top hat can, of course, be used for many other cute amigurumi creations.

Top Hat – Crochet

I used worsted weight yarn and 4.00mm to create the top hat, but depending on what you’re making, you’ll want to match the yarn and gauge accordingly (for example, use the same yarn and needle size that you use for the body of the Corpse Groom).

*Each piece is worked in the round without joining rows. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the row in order to keep track of your rows.*

In order to create a starting circle without a hole in the center, I use the double ring method. Detailed instructions for the double ring method can be found here.


Row 1: 6 sc in double ring. Pull ring closed tightly.

Row 2: 2 sc in each sc – 12 sc.

Row 3: *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc* – 18 sc.

Row 4: *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 2 sc* – 24 sc.

Row 5: *Sc2tog in back loops only. Sc in back loop only of next 6 sc.* Repeat twice – 21 sc.

Row 6-11: Sc around.

Row 12: *2 sc in front loop only of next sc, 1 sc in next sc* – 32 sc. (You will end with a 2 sc in a sc.)

Row 13: *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 2 sc* – 43 sc. (You will end with the first of the 2 sc.) Bind off. You’re done!



  1. I just made this little hat for a octopus that I had made to class him up a bit. It was so simple and cute I love your pattern. :] I hope you do not mind but I put it in a pintrest board of mine for future reference.
