Crochet Kippah (Yarmulka) pattern

STAR OF DAVID KIPPAH DIRECTIONS

1. Using first color, chain 6, slip stitch into first chain to form
circle

2. Chain 3, triple crochet, chain 2, then *triple crochet twice,
chain 2*, five times. Slip stitch into the chain 3 to close circle.

3. Slip stitch into space created by the next chain 2. Chain 3,
triple crochet, chain 2, triple crochet twice, chain 2... This is
all done in space created by the chain 2 of previous row.
*Triple crochet twice, chain 2, triple crochet twice, chain 2*, five
times. Slip stitch into the chain 3 to close circle.

4. Now is you'd like to change to a second color for this row, this
is a good place to do it.
In space between 2 pairs of triple stitches that are stitched into
same space...Chain 3, triple crochet, chain 2, triple crochet twice,
chain 2 Then single crochet in space in between the 2 pairs of
triple crochet and chain 2.
*Triple crochet twice, chain 2, triple crochet twice, chain 2, single
crochet, chain 2*, five times.Slip stitch into first chain 3.

5. Now switch back to first color. In space between 2 pairs of
triple crochet that are stitched into same space...Chain 3 and then
triple crochet 5 times (all into this same space), chain 3.Then
single crochet in space into single crochet from previous row, chain
3.
*Triple crochet 6 times, chain 3, single crochet, chain 3*, six
times.
Slip stitch into first chain 3

6. Chain 1, Single crochet. In next stitch (which is in the middle
of the 6 triple crochet of previous row) do 3 stitches in the
following order: double crochet, triple crochet, double crochet.
Then single crochet in remaining 2 triple crochet from previous row.
Do 4 single crochet in space
created by the chain 3 of previous row, single crochet into single
stitch of previous row, do 4 single crochet in space created by
chain 3 of previous row,
*single crochet in each of first 2 triple crochet of previous
row,increase in the middle of the 6 triple crochet of previous row
as follows: double crochet, triple crochet, double crochet (all in
the same hole), then single crochet in each remaining triple crochet
from previous row (there should
be 2)*, single crochet 4 times in space created by the chain 3 of
previous row, single crochet into single crochet of previous row, do
4 single crochet in space created by chain 3 of previous row, slip
stitch into chain 1 to complete the row.

7. Now change back to second color. Chain 1 and single crochet
entire row EXCEPT in the triple crochet that appears six times in
previous row. This is another chance to increase. Do 3 single
crochet in this particular stitch. Increase like this a total of six
times throughout the row. Slip stitch to end row.

8. Now switch to gold or silver metallic. Chain 1 and single crochet
entire row EXCEPT in the middle single crochet of the 3 single
crochet that appears six times in previous row (where you
increased). This is yet another chance to increase. Do 2 single
crochet in this particular stitch.
Increase like this a total of six times throughout the row. Slip
stitch to end row.

Now you're piece should like like a soft, six-sided star of David.

9. Change back to first color. This is where it gets just a little
tricky. Basically, you need to use different height stitches to make
the entire piece round...using smaller stitches at the points and
larger stitches in between the points. This row will not have, nor
need any increasing. Your
piece should be entirely flat after this row. So...Easiest to start
to stitch one stitch before the absolute height of one of the points.

Chain 1, single crochet twice, double crochet 4 times, triple
crochet 3 times, quadruple crochet 2 times, triple crochet 3 times
and double crochet 4 times.
* Single crochet 3 times, double crochet 4 times, triple crochet 3
times, quadruple crochet 2 times, triple crochet 3 times and double
crochet 4 times*, five times. Slip stitch into chain 1 to end row.

10. Chain 2 and now just double crochet for 3 rows. Increase 3 times
only in each of the rows. I usually spaced them out over every other
point. And changed which point I placed my first increase with each
row. This helps the kippah to start to curve inward slightly. Slip
stitch to end each row.

11. Chain 3, triple crochet, chain 1. * triple crochet twice, chain
1* for entire row. To increase, simply put the 2 triple chains into
the same stitch. I usually did this about 5 times throughout the row
so that you can end the row with the final chain 1 and slip stitch
to end the row.

12. Change to second color. Chain 1and single crochet for entire
row. Increase 3 times during this row (again I use the points to
keep oriented).Slip stitch to end row.

13. Change to metallic color. Chain 1 and single crochet for entire
row. Increase 3 times during this row (again I use the points to
keep oriented and increase in the point areas I didn't increase in
in the previous row). Slip stitch to end row.

14. Change to second color. Chain 1 and single crochet for entire
row. Increase 3 times during this row (again I use the points to
keep oriented).Slip stitch to end row.

15. Change back to first color. Chain 2 and double crochet for
entire row. Increase 3 times during this row (again I use the points
to keep oriented). Slip stitch to end row.

16. Last row: Chain 1 and single crochet for entire row. Increase 3
times during this row (again I use the points to keep oriented).Slip
stitch to end row.

If you'd like to make this kippah more feminine, you can weave a
ribbon in and out of the spaces created by step #11 and end it with
a small flower made out of the same ribbon.

would you mind putting this behhind an lj cut? its kind of long. instructions are in the LJ FAQ if you dont know how to do that.

Also, I'm sure the crochet wouldn't mind seeing this as well.

Not off hand, this pattern didn't come with a guage to set it by, sorry. I wouldn't use a yarn though, perhaps cording maybe.
