Crocheted Owl Hat

Print Friendly and PDF
I know I haven't crafted in  a while, but it's getting to be that chilly time of year, which means, crocheted hats and stuff! =o)
My friend Laura's son's birthday is coming up, and she asked me to make him a hat. I made im a bear hat when he was born, (TWO years ago.. omg..), and obviously he needs a new one.  Lexi has this Owl hat that my friend Janet bought for her for her 2nd birthday, and Lexi is absolutely in love with it! Since Lexi and Brody had matching bear hats, I figured they needed matching Owl hats as well. =o)
So I went online and searched for  a pattern to follow.
This is the one I found. Repeat Crafter Me
It is pretty good because it gives you the pattern for all different sizes. The only thing it that I think my yarn was a little thinner than the one she used, so I had to use a bigger size (child size) and I added more rows. I used Lexi's Owl hat as a guideline as to how big to make it. 
DCH= Double Crochet
Sl St= Slip Stich
Also for the ears, I just made the magic circle and DCH 9, then increased it each row, totaling 4 rows. 
The eyes, I started with a magic circle and DCH 9. Sl St, Changed colors, and crocheted two DCH in each DCH. (18 total DCH). Sl St, Changed colors again and 2 DCH in the first DCH, then 1 DCH in the next, repeat until you reach 27 DCH.

That's pretty much it. =o)

Let me know if you have any questions! =o)
