Baby Bunny Crochet Hat Pattern (3-6 months)



Springtime is just about here, which means Easter is coming! A photographer asked me to make her a little bunny hat, and I was thrilled with her request. I have a soft spot for all those cuddly looking baby animals :) Anyway, here's what I came up with.

Materials:
  • Size I crochet hook
  • Bulky Weight Yarn (I used Lion Brand Jiffy Yarn in Fisherman)
  • Sport Weight Yarn (I used Patons Beehive Baby Sport Yarn in Precious Pink. I opted to go with sport weight yarn for the inner ear so that the ear wouldn't turn out as thick.)
  • Tapestry Needle
Notes:
  • This pattern is for size 3-6 months
  • Ch 2 does NOT count as a stitch.
  • Don't join rounds to top of ch 2. Instead, join the rounds to the 1st DC. 
  • You are welcome to make and sell products from this pattern but please link back to this post. Please do not copy this pattern and claim it as your own. Please do not republish any of my photos as your own.

Pattern: (3-6 months)

Round 1: Magic Ring, ch 2, DC 10, pull ring nice and tight, join to first DC, ch 2
Round 2: 2 DC in each DC around, join, ch 2. (20 DC)
Round 3: 
DC in first, DC in next DC, repeat  around, ch 2. (30 DC)
Round 4: 
DC in first, DC in next 2 DC, repeat around, join, ch 2.  (40 DC) 
Round 5-8: DC in each stitch around, join, ch 2 (On round 8, finish with a ch 1)
Round 9: SC in each around, join, ch 2
Round 10: Sl St in next stitch, ch 2. Repeat around, join, finish off. 

Outer Ears: (Make 2)

Ch 30, sl st in 4th ch from hook. Ch 3, skip one ch, sl st in next stitch, repeat across. Working on the opposite side of row, ch 3, skip one ch, sl st in next stitch, repeat across. Now continue to crochet in this manner around and around until desire outer ear width is reached. I made mine just until 3 inches wide.


Inner ears: (Make 2)

Ch 36, sl st in 4th ch from hook. Ch 3, skip one ch, sl st in next stitch, repeat across. Working on the opposite side of row, ch 3, skip one ch, sl st in next stitch, repeat across. Now continue to crochet in this manner around and around until slightly less wide than outer ears. Leave a long tail for sewing inner and outer ears together.

Finishing:

Sew each inner ear to each outer ear. Then position ears onto the sides of the hat and sew on. Weave in all loose ends.
