Does anyone else SQUEAL with excitement after finishing a project? (I hope so, otherwise a lot of people will probably think I’m weird!)
While working on some Valentine’s inspired items I made this simple shelled bonnet in a few different shades of pinks and reds. I found the pattern here: http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2013/10/crochet-pumpkin-pixie-bonnet.html I altered it a little to add ties by chaining 40 and slip stitching back over the chain before attaching each tie to the hat.
When I finished the red one I immediately thought of Little Red Riding Hood.
So, naturally, I HAD TO make a Big Bad Wolf to match! How cute would a pair of twins look in these hats?!
I created my own pattern for this wolf hat and decided to share my pattern! I do ask that you do not attempt to claim this pattern as your own. You are more than welcome to sell your finished product, however I do ask that you give me credit and include a link to my blog. (This will help me be able to share more free patterns!) Thank you!
Oh, and I bought both of these yarns in a clearance-pound!! 😄
Note: I do tend to crochet tightly. For newborn sized wolf hat: Your finished product should be about 6″ by 5.5″ when laid flat.
