Meow! This adorable Kitty Cat Hat is too cute for words. Plus, it's super easy to crochet and quick to work up using Bernat Softee Baby yarn. This free crochet hat pattern is not only fun to wear, but also easy to wash. The ears are crocheted separately and then later sewn onto the hat. If you have kids in your life, this cute hat is definitely a must-do crochet pattern to complete.

NOTE per Yarnspirations:

This pattern comes in 3 sizes, the 5th row is where you start to work for the different sizes.
I know it seems strange but it does work.  
The smallest 6month size you will work 1 hdc in each of the next 11 hdc.
Size 12 months you will work 1 hdc in each of the next 3 hdc.
Size 18/24 month you will work 1 hdc in each of the next 2 hdc.

We are currently looking into this pattern and have contacted the company. Thank you for your patience.

Wish I could understand your shorthand within the instructions. After resding other folks questions No one bothers to answer will look elsewhere

Not would be nice if someone answered the posts! I am in the process of making this and question directions same as the others.

I'm busy making this but don't understand the (3-2) in the 5th row. Also it mentions that different sizes are colour coded yet when I printed it it was all in black so could you help pls. Thank You

Did you figure it out?

I love the simple look of this animal hat. Some are far too busy. I am a seasoned crocheter and found the "join with s sl st to the RST hdc" confusing until I did some investigating using every resource material I could find. I believe it is just a typo and should have read fiRST. Bernat, it would be nice if you addressed this for other who are confused. I intend to do it this way and will soon find out if I am right. Thanks for the great pattern.

This is so cute! I love it!

I think this is an adorable pattern...I am going to make it today...but just wish the pattern was easier to print. Would make things so much easier. Thanks!!

I understand what joining with a slip stitch is, but what is 'join with sl st to rst hdc'. What is rst

Rst means first stitch its a typo error
