12 days of DIY crochet gift giving 2014: Day 2
Originally posted December 2, 20147:04 PM MST
Happy Holidays. Day 2 of DIY gift giving is a fun one.
This hat is my version of a cat ear beanie with some nice texture to give anyone a warm noggin. The pattern is a series of repeats and works up super quick, and would be perfect for last minute gift givers.
For this hat no gauge is given, because it is truly customizable for anyone from a toddler to a child, however the pattern as written should fit a teen to a woman, so about 20’ to 22’. Your foundation chain can be done in any even amount divisible by 4.
This hat should take between 1-2 hours to complete depending on your skill level.
Pattern is written in US crochet terms. This pattern gives you PERMISSION TO SELL your finished items. It is appreciated if you credit the design to Acquanetta Ferguson and to list the pattern link.
