Birthday bear hat

The Birthday bear hat was made for my friend’s birthday present. It’s crocheted in brown acrylic yarn for ease of washing (I avoid using 100% natural fibre yarns for gifts, especially since I know most people will toss things into the washing machines and I want to avoid things shrinking down several sizes). I made up the pattern myself. The ears are double layered to help with keeping their shape. They look a little wonky in the photos (the ear on the right looks a little lopsided). This is because my model’s head is not the same shape as a human head, so it doesn’t fill out the hat perfectly – but they’re both non-wonky and stay perfectly (… when on a person’s head).

Model: Elijah
