A little about me:
I’m 29. I’ve been crocheting since I was 11, so this year I have 18 years under my belt! I love to help people, so for 11 years I’ve worked as a CNA. I love cats , so I have 3 of them. My husband and I have 2 sons together. The 3 of them are the lights of my life Now I am lucky enough to run my own business where I design and sell crochet patterns, as well as my finished makes.

R2 – 5: Sc around 
Sl st into the next st, FO, leave a long tail for sewing.
- Start by sewing in your ends on the hat.
- Sew the inner ear onto the ears (make sure not to sew through both sides of the ear)
- Flatten the hat to see where to place the ears best – I like to place mine between rows 5 and 6.
- Sew the horns to the hat just inside the ears – I like to place mine on row 4, then I like
to center the muzzle on the lower rows of the hat and sew it on.
- Finally, I place the eye patch just above the muzzle and on the right side of the hat.
- When all these pieces are sewn down, I weave in all my ends for the ears and horns.
- I use the eye patch tail to sew the buttons on for both eyes, and then use the muzzle tail to sew on both nostrils.
- I place the eyes just on the inside of the middle 8 sts of the muzzle between rows 7 and 8.
- I place the nostrils at either end of rows 1 and 2 of the muzzle.
- Once the eyes and nostrils are sewn in place, I finish weaving in my ends, and we’re done
Enjoy your little one’s new hat.
Thanks so much for completing my pattern 🙂
