Pop-up Elf Hat With Moving Ears

"This fun and silly Christmas crochet elf hat will delight friends and family at holiday celebrations. The clever design uses an air pump to make the elf’s pointy ears move up and down. Inspired by the bunny hat with moving ears that’s been trending on social media, I have created a whole collection of crochet moving ears hats, including this Elf Hat Crochet Pattern. It's cute, silly, and fun for all ages. This Elf Hat Crochet Pattern includes a special air pump feature to make the ears move. To make it even more festive, I’ve added bells to the tips of the ears. So not only do the ears move up and down but they also jingle which will be great for upcoming Christmas Photos for the Christmas Season! The pattern is written in a way that you can easily adjust the pattern for adult sizes, children sizes, or even smaller, although I don’t recommend too small due to the air pump inserts. This pattern is perfect for every member of the family. This pattern will show you how to make your very own crochet elf hat with moving ears!"
