Adorable hats! I can't wait to try the fox one, these would be perfect for an easy Halloween costume for the kids too.

Oh this is so unfair! How can I pick which one to try to make first? I scrolled down the list and started with the first one thinking, ok this is the one, then went down a few more and said that was it. You know you have me into making them all, right? I have four grandkids, an 8 yr old girl, 5 year old boy and a two month old set of twin boys. I have to make one for each or be branded a bad grandma!

Love the animal hat patterns, but how does one print the book? Clicking on the "free e-book" button brings up the Amiguri book, which I have no interest in.

Hi Meglet, There actually isn't a book for the animal crochet hats. This is simply a collection page of our favorite patterns. We apologize for any confusion. --editors of AllFreeCrochet

Adorable hat, scrappy instructions certainly not for a beginner, some abbreviations didn't match any chart.

what does sl st to rst hdc mean?

It means slip stitch to 1 st. half double crochet. (they forgot the "F") or # 1.

What's your favorite animal? Leave a comment and let us know! Mine is a cow, so I would probably make the Crochet Cow Hat first :) -editors of AllFreeCrochet

Tiger! Would love to see that hat!
