Crochet Bunny Hat

Crochet Bunny Hat

 

Cute and simple this bunny hat is quick to work up and very cute! The pink part of the ears are made with chunky yarn to stiffen the ears so they can stand up on their own. The hat is worked up with double crochet in a way that will create a straight seam and not a slanted one. The bottom is worked with 2 rows of front post double crochet to create a textured look. The face is made with all yarn, no buttons, to keep your little one safe. The free pattern for newborn and toddler sizes are listed below.
