Reindeer Hat With Moving Ears
"This fun and silly crochet reindeer hat will generate smiles at holiday parties! It uses a set of air pumps to make the reindeer’s ears move up and down. Add a blinking red reindeer nose to make it extra merry and bright. This crochet reindeer hat with moving ears makes a special gift for kids, or really any fun-loving family members. Thanks to air pumps hidden in his dangling arms, the reindeer’s ears flap up and down. And of course, no crochet Rudolph hat would be complete without his blinking red nose. I’ll tell you where to get all the supplies on my blog. And although there are many components to this reindeer hat pattern, it’s actually relatively quick and easy to make. The pattern includes a full video tutorial to help you along. The pattern is written for an adult medium, but I’ve also included a reference chart so you can make it in a child size or any other size you like."
