Cute and Easy Crochet Cat Hat
Cute and Easy Crochet Cat Hat
This image courtesy of AllFreeCrochet.com

When a standard crochet winter hat just won't do, try working up the Cute and Easy Crochet Cat Hat instead. This crochet hat pattern is worked up in much the same way as a typical hat, but with the extra addition of crochet earflaps that also tie to keep your head and ears super warm against the cold wind. Not only that, it also features little cat ears at the top, giving this hat pattern a youthful, fun vibe. Available in sizes preemie through large adult and worked up in bulky yarn, this easy crochet pattern is an absolute joy to work up. 

Notes:
-The hat is made in the shape of a square and then sewn across the corners to create the ears.
-The beginning chain does not count as a stitch.
-Each round is started in the same stitch as your beginning chain.
-The end of each round is joined by slip stitching in the first stitch of the round, not the beginning chain.
-Instructions for the bow can be found at the end of the file.

    Fasten off.

    Ear Flap #2: Leave 22 stitches unworked across the front of the hat and join in the 23rd stitch. Repeat the instructions from Ear Flap #1 but do not fasten off after the last row; continue working around the hat making 1 sc in each stitch around, including the ends of each Ear Flap row. 
    When you get to the last row of Ear Flap # 1: sc in the first stitch, make 2 sc in the next stitch, sc in the last stitch of the row and continue working around the rest of the hat. Repeat the instructions on the last row of Ear Flap # 2. You should be back at the starting point - join in the first sc and fasten off.
    Cut a piece of yarn that is approximately 24" long. Working diagonally across the corners at the top of the hat, seam the ears. Weave in all ends.

Finishing

  1. Seaming the Top of the Hat 
    Flatten the finished piece so the seam is centered at what will be the back of the hat. Starting at one end, sew the top of the hat closed. I recommend using a whip stitch or mattress stitch; however, you could also slip stitch or SC through both layers instead.

  2. Creating the Ears
    1. Visually divide the hat into three sections (vertical dashed lines)
    2. Starting at the right side of the hat, sew diagonally across the first corner as indicated by the arrow (I used a back stitch)
    3. Weave the yarn through the stitches at the top of the hat (between the dashed lines)
    4. Sew diagonally across the second corner of the hat
