Make them say "awwww" when you give marshmallows wearing hats


Tiered tray and three crocheted hats on marshmallow mugs.

Have you seen these adorable marshmallow mugs that are just everywhere?! They are just the cutest darn things! People are finding ways to add seasonal details to them and use them as décor which I love.


I like to put up new decorations in my house every month, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel each time. I love having a set like this that I can switch out for instant holiday cuteness. Here is a free January hat pattern and once you pop one on top the mugs fit fantastically on a tiered tray or as a standalone decoration!


I've created an entire year's worth of crocheted hat patterns to fit the mugs which makes for a wonderful gift for yourself or someone else. Because they are so small they whip up fast and are very fun to make! You could even put candy or a gift card inside a mug and with a hat on top they are ready to give away. I'm going to roll out a new pattern at the end of each month so you can have one ready to go when a new month begins!

The second row of stitches can be hard to see. Use the "spike of color" from row 20 as a marker for where to put the next stitches.

row 22 - hdc in each around (40)

Using the end of the Bernat Pipsqueak yarn to cover the gap between rows on a crocheted hat that fits a marshmallow mug.

Finish off. You can use one of the Pipsqueak yarn ends to stitch over the transition from worsted to the Pipsqueak and hide it.

Sewing the top of a crocheted hat to the side of the hat so it will stay in place on top of a marshmallow mug.

Use a piece of yarn to stitch the top of the hat to the side of the hat in a matching color so it will not show.


Attach pompom.


*For a pink hat - sew on button using needle and matching thread.


Pattern for the striped hat:

Carrying yarn up the back of a striped crochet mug hat that fits on a marshmallow mug.

Note – After row five, when working final stitch in each row, yarn over, go under loops AND under the two working strands of the colors you are not currently using, pull up a loop and finish stitch. If changing colors, finish stitch with the new color.


Also after row 5 - tie off starting ends of yarn, weave in, and cut off to reduce the number of strings.

Start with Royal yarn

row 1 – 4 hdc in magic circle. Pull yarn tail to close circle. (4)

row 2 – hdc in each around (4)

Change to White yarn

row 3 – 2 hdc in each around (8)

Change to Stonewash yarn

row 4 – hdc in each around (8)

row 5 – (hdc in first, 2 hdc in next) repeat 4 times (12)

Change to White yarn

*This is a good time to tie off the starting ends of yarn, weave them in and cut them off. This reduces the mess on the inside that you have to work around.

row 6 – hdc in each around (12)

Change to Royal yarn

row 7 – (hdc in first two, 2 hdc in next) repeat 4 times (16)

row 8 – hdc in each around (16)

Change to White yarn

Change to Royal yarn

row 13 – (hdc in first 5, 2 hdc in next) repeat 4 times (28)

row 14 - hdc in each around (28)

Change to White yarn

row 15– (hdc in first 6, 2 hdc in next) repeat 4 times (32)

Change to Stonewash yarn

row 16 - hdc in each around (32)

row 20 - hdc in each around (40)

Change to Pipsqueak yarn

row 21 – hdc in each around (40)

The second row of stitches can be hard to see. Use the "spike of color" from row 20 as a marker for where to put the next stitches.

row 22 - hdc in each around (40)


Finish off. You can use one of the Pipsqueak yarn ends to stitch over the transition from worsted to the Pipsqueak and hide it.
