Shrek Ear Costume Beanie Hat Free Crochet Pattern long image

I couldn’t resist making this Shrek Ear hat for one of my nephew’s birthday.  It’s a fun and easy beginner friendly crochet project.  I think if I make another I will use less stuffing so they don’t look so full.  I can’t wait to see how he likes this and what it looks like on top of his cute head. :) I may have to make the baby girl ogre in to a hat for my little niece and more of this for my other wonderful nephews.

Shrek Ear Costume Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern

Pattern Instructions:

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my free Easy Peasy Youth Sized (Age 3-10 years old) Double Crochet Beanie  Hat Pattern which you can find  here as a foundation for the project. Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size of the free pattern you want for your project.

Hat Base: using bright green yarn

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice

Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to transform your beanie into an ogre worthy hat. :)

Ear topper (Make 2): using bright green yarn
This part of the feature is attached near the top of the ear during ear process to create a closed pocked for the fiberfill stuffing to keep it from falling out.
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 hdc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 hdc)
Cut yarn, pull through last loop on hook and fasten off.
Repeat above process for second ear topper.

The above feature size works well on toddler to adult male sized hats. For smaller features on toddler hat and all infant sized hats, use the following instructions instead:
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1 before placing 8 sc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (8 sc)
Cut yarn, pull through last loop on hook and fasten off.
Repeat above process for second ear topper.

Ear (Make 2): using bright green yarn and finished ear toppers from previous step
Important note: Since we are working from the bottom up for the ears, you want to start off with a length of yarn being unused at the start of your project so you can sew it in place on the hat to secure it during assembly.
Round 1: After leaving a yarn tail at start of project, in a magic circle ch 2 before placing 10 hdc st in to the circle. Pull the circle tightly closed. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 hdc)
Round 2: For this round you will work BLO (back loops only). Ch 1before placing 1 sc in the BL of 1st st and 1 sc in each of the following 9 st around in BLO. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 sc)
Rounds 3-6: Ch 2 before placing 1 hdc in 1st st and 1 hdc in each of the following 9 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 hdc)
Now take the time to lightly stuff the Shrek ear before you close it off in the next round. You don’t want to overstuff it as it will make the surrounding area sag from the weight or bunch up. I normally just put in enough so it will retain its desired shape but not be heavy.
Rounds 7: Now line up one of your finished ear toppers with opening. For this round you will work through both the stitch from previous round and a matching st from the topper. Ch 1 before working 2 sc in 1st st (through both pieces) and proceed to place 2 sc in each st around in same fashion for following 9 st. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (20 sc)
Round 8: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each of the following 19 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (20 sc)
Fasten off.
Repeat above process for the second Shrek ear.

The above feature size works well on toddler to adult male sized hats. For smaller features on toddler hat and all infant sized hats, use the following instructions instead:
Round 1: After leaving a yarn tail at start of project, in a magic circle ch 1 before placing 8 sc st in to the circle. Pull the circle tightly closed. Sl st in the top of the back loop of 1st st in round. (8 sc)
Round 2: For this round you will work BLO (back loops only). Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in the BL of 1st st and 1 sc in each of the following 7 st around in BLO. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (8 sc)
Rounds 3-4: Ch 2 before placing 1 hdc in 1st st and 1 hdc in each of the following 7 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (8 hdc)
Now take the time to lightly stuff the Shrek ear before you close it off in the next round. You don’t want to overstuff it as it will make the surrounding area sag from the weight or bunch up. I normally just put in enough so it will retain its desired shape but not be heavy.
Rounds 5: Now line up one of your finished ear toppers with opening. For this round you will work through both the stitch from previous round and a matching st from the topper. Ch 1 before working2 sc in 1st st (through both pieces) and proceed to place 2 sc in each st around in same fashion for following 7 st. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (16 sc)
Round 6: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each of the following 15 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (16 sc)
Fasten off.
Repeat above process for the second Shrek ear.

Shrek Ear Costume Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern (2)

Hat Assembly:
Taking the yarn tail from one of the completed shrek ears, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the ear in place on one top side of the beanie hat. You can see my pictures to see where I placed mine if you are looking for some guidance. I tried to make mine as close as possible to Shrek images. Once you have sewn it in place, pull your yarn to the inside of the beanie hat. At this point I normally reinforce any large or upright features for my hats with a second set of stitches on the inside. It’s not a necessary step but I do recommend it. Once you have the ear secure in place, fasten off in the inside of the beanie hat.
Now you will repeat this process with the second Shrek ear making sure you are placing it in a mirror image location of the previous one so they are symmetrical.
Once both ears are attached, double check your work to make sure you don’t have any loose end or tails that you missed during assembly process. If you find any, fasten them off now.
All done! Super easy but fun Shrek hat. I can’t wait to see what my nephews think about them.

Before you cut your yarn, leave a long tail. You are going to use this tail to stitch the antenna into a circular tube which will just be wide enough for a pipe cleaner or two to slip inside to help you hold your form.
You may choose to not use a pipe cleaner and add a little coated wire or stuffing. One way to get the curve of the antenna without using pipe cleaner or wire is to skip a st inbetween sewing together the area you want to curve and pull yarn tight before going to next one. :)

ilomilo's Ilo and Milo Character Hats Crochet Pattern (25)

Finishing off:
Taking the tail on one eye and your yarn needle sew the first eye to bottom right of face area. You can see my pictures on where I placed them on my hats.  Once attached, pull yarn to back of face area and fasten off.
Taking the tail on the second eye and your yarn needle attach it to the bottom left of face area. Again once attached in place, pull yarn to back of face area and fasten off.
Now using the leftover yarn tail on the face area and yarn needle secure the face area directly on to the front of the beanie hat in desired location.  Once securely in place, pull yarn to inside of beanie hat before fastening off.
Using tail on your antenna and your needle, stitch your antennae closed at end you are starting with that has tail at before stitching down your piece forming it in a circular tube around the pipe cleaner (again this is optional but I do recommend it as it helps keep it in an upright curved position). I just did a simple back and forth stitch as my sewing skills are less than stellar. Once you have the tube closed and reached the bottom end, move on to next step.
Using tail left on your antenna from previous step and needle, secure it in place on the top of your beanie hat. Once you have it sewn in your desired place, I centered mine on the first round on hat base, pull yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off.
Now just check for any loose ends or tails you may have missed during assembly and if you find any, do so now.
All done!

Brraiiiinnsss?  I have to admit the gaming geek side of me loves making the characters from various games emerge from the yarn.  I’m pretty sure I gave out a squee when this one was done.  If you are a fan of this game or zombies in general, or maybe just have someone you know that loves them, this makes a fun little project.  Due to the mouth construction and all the little pieces to be sewn on, I would rate this crochet pattern to be advanced beginner and up.  I tried to make it as easy as possible to understand but I am still new to pattern making so please let me know if you have any questions or find anything confused.  I hope you like this cute zombie too. :)

(You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own) Once secure, like before, pull yarn through to the back before fastening off.
Next we are going to do the teeth. I will give them to you in a clockwise circle starting with the top left corner.
For the first tooth, take the tail from your Extra Large Tooth, sew in to the top of the mouth on top and in the center of the upper pink gum area. Once secure pull yarn to back of mouth before fastening off.
For the second tooth, you will use one the Small Sized Teeth, attaching it to the center of the upper mouth area. Once secure pull yarn to back and fasten off.
For the third tooth, you will use one of the Medium Sized Teeth, sewing it in place in the upper right corner, about 2 stitches out from corner. Again sewing securely on before pulling to back and fastening off.
For the fourth tooth, you will use the tail left on second of the Medium Sized Teeth and yarn needle to secure this tooth in the bottom left corner, directly in corner touching left side of mouth. Once attached, pull yarn to back of mouth and fasten off.
For the fifth tooth, you will use the yarn left on the second of the Small Sized Teeth and attach it to the center of the bottom pink gum area on top of it so it looks like your tooth is sticking out of thickest part of gum. Once that is done, pull through and fasten off yarn in back of mouth area.

Finishing off:
I like to start with the bottom when making hats with features so I have plenty of room to work instead of squished up space if I judge wrong when starting at the top. It’s easier that way as you can always move next features up etc.
Now you should have a fully assembled mouth area with one long black mouth tail left. Using your yarn needle and the tail left on your mouth, attach it to your beanie near the center bottom of the front of your beanie. I just centered mine just above the last dc round on my hat. You can reference my pictures to see how I placed mine if you aren’t sure. Once the mouth area is secured in place on your beanie, pull the yarn tail to the inside of the beanie hat before fastening off.
Taking the tail of your larger nostril and yarn needle, sew your larger nostril in place just to the right of the center of the mouth. Pull yarn to back when secure and fasten off.
Now take the tail of the smaller nostril and use your needle to secure it in place just to the left of the center of the mouth area. I lined my nostrils up so they are slightly angled in and the bottoms of each both started at same st line so this one was shorter on top.
Next to assemble the eyes, take one pupil tail and sew in place on eye white in desired location. I wanted mine to look more like character so I didn’t center them or point them in same direction. You can see my pictures of my completed hat or zombie picture from Plants Vs. Zombie’s game art. Now repeat to attach pupil to the second eye.
Now that your eyes are assembled, take the white yarn tail from the larger eye and yarn needle to sew it in place on the right side of face, the same side as your larger nostril. Once you have secured it completely in place, pull your yarn to the inside of the hat before fastening it off.
Now repeat this process with the smaller eye but sew it in place on the left side of the face, the same side as your smaller nostril. One you have sewn it in place, pull yarn to inside of hat and fasten off.
Check over your hat to make sure there aren’t any loose ends or tails you have not woven in and fastened off in your assembly. Do so now if you find any. All done!

Here are some pictures to show how the completed Plants vs. Zombies Zombie Character hat looks like worn from different angles once you are all done:

Arthritis Awareness Blue Curly Pigtail Beanie Hat Free Crochet Pattern long

I decided to make myself some fun hats to wear with or without my newly acquired wigs since I have been losing my hair.  I came up with this idea for a blue curly pigtail hat to wear for World Arthritis Day or just for fun.  I will be making some in different hair colors for some small children as requested by their parents.  I’ve had several adults ask me to make this for them as well. :) Since I really do hate the sewing together part of hats, I designed it so each pigtail is in one piece versus each curl being a separate piece to sew on.  I think it’s a great project for beginners.  It looks a lot more complicated than it actually is to make. Happy crafting!

Leave a long enough tail on your pigtail in order to be able to securely sew it in to place on your beanie hat during assembly before you cut the yarn, pull it through and place it to side until needed.

Repeat process for your second pigtail.

This size pigtail will work great on youth through adult sized hats.  For toddler sized hats, do the following:

For the sixth curl, sl st in next ch before leaving the last ch unworked for now and ch 10.  Make 3 hdc in 3rd ch from your hook, 3 hdc in following 6 ch and 2 hdc in last ch before you sl st back in to foundation chain in ch next on chain.

Leave a long enough tail on your pigtail in order to be able to securely sew it in to place on your beanie hat during assembly before you cut the yarn, pull it through and place it to side until needed.

Repeat process for your second pigtail.

 

Arthritis Awareness Curly Pigtail Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern (3) Finishing off:

Take the tail left on one of your curly pigtails and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it on to the top side of your beanie hat. You can see where I placed my own. If you want your pigtails to hang longer than hat, place lower on hat, if you like it equal or shorter to length of hat, place further towards the top.  Once secure, pull your yarn to the inside of the beanie and fasten off.  Repeat process for the second pigtail.

Next take the tail left on one your purple (or desired color) hair bows and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it to the top of one attached curly pigtails on hat. Again you can reference my pictures on where I placed my own.  I like to fold the center of my bows in half and place a few back / forth stitches to help them retain that shape before sewing it on to my location.  I like how the bows look when narrowed in the center but that is totally optional and up to your own preferences. I like to do this step on top of the pigtails that are already attached to beanie as a double step to secure the pigtails to the hat with the bow. :)

Once you have it sewn in to place, pull your yarn to the inside of hat before fastening off.  Now repeat process for second bow.

Now check over your crochet project for any tails or ends that you may have missed throughout assembly process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.
All done!  Now you have one completed curly pigtail hat!  I love mine. I even wore it to go to the emergency room on Paint the World Blue for Arthritis Day. Boy did it get a lot of attention and kept the smiles going around. :)

Who is Captain America?  If you are a superhero fan or have one in your life then you more than likely know something about good old Captain.  He has been around since the early 1940’s thanks to Marvel comics.  You can learn more about him here.

Make sure you leave an tail long enough to secure the star in place on the logo circle during assembly before you cut yarn and pull through.  I stitched mine around the perimeter of the star and around the main circle in Round 1 so it wouldn’t bubble up in the middle.

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my Easy Peasy Youth Sized (Age 3-10 years old) Double Crochet Beanie  Hat Pattern which you can find  here as a foundation for the project.  Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size you want for your project.

Hat Base:

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice

Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start customizing your own Captain America Superhero hat for the superhero fan in your life. :)

Letter A Logo:  Using White yarn
Row 1: Start off with a chain of  20.  Place 2 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 hdc in the next 6 ch, 3 hdc in next st, 1 hdc in next 2 ch, 3 hdc in following st, 1 hdc in next 6 st, and 2 hdc in last st.  (24 st total)
Row 2:  Ch 1 and rotate so you will be working up the unworked side of the chain. Work 1 sl st into side of last hdc and into first ch (where your hdc was worked from) before placing 1 sl st in each of the next 3 st. In next st, sl st before making a ch of 6, place 1 hdc in the 3rd ch from hook and in each of the next 3 ch. Sl st into the next ch back on A body.  (You should now have a little strap across that will hook into A shape when you sew it on in one piece.) Sl st in next 12 st.  Rotate your A so you will now be working on the outside perimeter. Sl st in side of hdc st and it top of 1st hdc on this side of the A.  Place 1 sl st in the rest of the st around until you reach your 1st sl st in Row 2. Sl st in to the first st.
Leave an extra long yarn tail before cutting it and pulling through. You will need this tail to sew your A logo securely in place during finishing step.

*This size logo will work on toddler, teen, women’s and men’s size hats.  For newborn to 12 month size hats, switch to sc and remove 4 ch from starting ch.  This will allow you to remove 2 sc on each length of the A. Just make sure you remove the same amount on each side of the A or it will end up a bit lopsided.

Finishing off:
Using the tail left on the assembled large letter “A” logo from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle , sew the piece in the desired location on the front of the hat.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.) This is when you will also sew your strap from the inside of the A logo into position.  I like to do that all in one step for less work. 😉  Once secure, pull yarn to the inside of your beanie hat before fastening off.
Check for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any. Then you are all done.

Here are some pictures to show how this Captain America inspired beanie hat looks worn from different directions once finished:

*For sizes newborn to 6 months, leave off Round 3 and 4.

Green Lantern Logo: using Green yarn 
This part of the Logo I made into three simple pieces and just sewed them in place on the logo circle before attaching to hat.

For Circle part of Logo: using Green yarn
Round 1: Starting with beginning chain that will be formed into an open circle, ch 12, then sl st in to the last ch from the hook making sure it is not twisted. You should now have your open circle base.

Green Lantern Superhero Logo Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Closeup

Finishing off:
Before attaching anything to the hat directly we are going to put together the logo in one piece so that when we fasten off any undesirable ends are hidden between logo circle and beanie. :)
Taking the tail left on the green circle part of logo, center it on your white logo circle then use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure it in place.  Once secure pull the yarn through to the back before fastening off.
Next take the tail from one of the green logo stripes and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in place. One should be on the top and the other on the bottom in parallel lines to each other as seen in logo picture and my hat pictures.  As before, once secure, pull yarn to back and fasten off.  Repeat this process for the second stripe.  Once fastened off you should only have one yarn tail left on your assembled logo, a long white one.
Using the tail left on the assembled logo from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle , sew the piece onto the desired place on the front of the hat.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.)
Check for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any. Then you are all done.

Cinnamoroll “Cinnamon” the Puppy Character Beanie Hat Free Crochet Pattern

 

This crochet pattern was inspired by this cute picture of Cinnamoroll the Puppy with the contrast cinnamon colored lines. Even though he is an all white puppy I wanted to see how he would turn out with a bit of cinnamon. :)  So thus this hat was created.  He is a Hello Kitty world friend and adorable of course.  I think he translated pretty well to crochet. Now I have to make an all white true version of him soon!

Repeat Rounds 1-16 from Ear Front step above but do leave a long enough tail of yarn at the beginning of your project to be able to sew your ears once assembled on to the beanie hat. After completing Round 16 fasten off.

Ear Liner: using one ear front, one ear back and cinnamon brown yarn
Round 17: Place one finished Ear Front in front of the Ear Back you are working on. Attach your “cinnamon” yarn to a st at one of the top corners of ears with a sl st before ch 1, then work a round of  1 sc around the perimeter through both pieces until you reach the other top corner.

Taking the tail from one of your blush circles and Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle, sew them in place in desired location on face.  Pull yarn to the inside of your hat when finished sewing before fastening off end.  Repeat this process for the second blush circle.
Next you want to use the tail from one eye and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew one eye in to the proper place. You can reference my pictures as to where I placed them on my own Cinnamoroll hat. Once sewn on, pull yarn to inside of hat and finish off.  Repeat this process for the second eye.
Using the tail left behind on one of the floppy puppy ears, use yourBlunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure the ear to the side top area of the beanie in desired location with the contrast on hat. You can see my pictures for where I placed my own. If you want longer hanging ears place it lower on the hat or higher placement for shorter length of ears hanging down. Once you have it in place, pull your yarn in to the inside of the beanie before finishing off extra length.  Repeat this process for the second ear.
Now check over your crochet project for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.

The children in the play in my mother’s classroom needed three little pig hats. I wanted to make these pigs looking more young and fun versus the adult pig hat I created previously for my mother to wear when reading Three Little Pigs to her class.  I like how the pig(gie)s turned out and find them very cute.  The kids loved them and were so excited to wear them in their play.Make just one hat or crochet the whole set! :)

hdc – half double crochet

Pattern Instructions:

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my Easy Peasy Youth Sized (Age 3-10 years old) Double Crochet Beanie  Hat Pattern which you can find  here as a foundation for the project.  Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size you want for your project.

Hat Base:

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice

Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start on making your own Three Little Pig(gie)s hat.
Starting off we are going to put a simple contrast color band to the bottom of the hat.  For this sl st your darker Pink contrast  yarn to a st on the last round. Ch 1, then work 1 sc in each st around, sl st to top of first st in round before finishing off.

Inner Black Pupil of Eyes: using black yarn
Round 1:  Starting off with your black yarn for the pupils of the eye, ch 2 (does not count as a st throughout pattern) before placing 8 hdc in a magic circle. Pull circle tight before sl st in top of beginning st. (8 hdc)
Cut yarn leaving a long tail in order to sew your pupil in place on your eye white during assembly process. Pull yarn through and put to side until needed.

Outer White Eye: using white yarn
Round 1:  Starting off with your black yarn for the pupils of the eye, ch 2 (does not count as a st throughout pattern) before placing 10 dc in a magic circle. Pull circle tight before sl st in top of beginning st.  (10 dc)
Round 2:  Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and 3 dc in the next 9 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Cut yarn leaving a long tail in order to sew your eye on to the beanie during assembly process. Pull yarn through and put to side until needed.

Nostrils (make 2): using black yarn
Ch 3. Pull yarn through after cutting with a tail long enough to secure nostrils on to the nose front. Put to side until assembly steps.

Nose Front: using darker pink contrast yarn 
Round 1:  Taking the darker pink contrast yarn, ch 2 (does not count as a st throughout pattern) before placing 8 dc in a magic circle. Pull circle tight before sl st in top of beginning st.  (8 dc)
Round 2:  Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in first st and 2 sc in the next 7 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (16 sc)
Round 3:  Ch 1 before placing *2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next st*   repeating * pattern until end of round. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (24 sc)
Fasten off.

Nose back:  using main color  pink yarn – optional step

Note:  This is not a necessary step in making this hat but I highly recommend doing this. Since we are putting fiberfill stuffing inside nose / snout during assembly and the openings between st on beanie expand when worn, this will keep it in the snout and not of the wearers forehead which can get a bit itchy. :)

Round 1:  Starting off with your black yarn for the pupils of the eye, ch 2 (does not count as a st throughout pattern) before placing 12 dc in a magic circle. Pull circle tight before sl st in top of beginning st.  (12 dc)
Round 2:  Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and 3 dc in the next 11 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (24 dc)
Fasten off nose back.

Attaching Nostrils:
Now is a good time to attach your nostrils on to the front of the nose front you have just assembled. Otherwise you have to sew in around the depth of the snout.   So using your yarn needle and the tail left on one nostril, sew it securely on to the front of the Nose Front. (see pictures to see where I placed mine).  Pull yarn through to back of nose front when secure before fastening off.
Repeat process with second nostril.

Nose Snout: using main color  pink yarn
With nose front facing you sl st your main color pink yarn (or desired main color for hats) where you left off in last round in creating the nose snout so that the good side is facing towards you.
Rounds 1-3:  Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in first st and in each of the following 23 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (24 sc)

Attaching Nose Back: *optional*
At this point before cutting yarn if you choose to do the Nose Back (optional step) to keep the stuffing inside the snout, place it against the opening of your snout and do Round 4 like rounds 1-3 but through the st in both pieces at once, securing it in to place.  You want to stop 1/2 to 2/3 of the way around to start stuffing your snout to desired fullness. Once you have reached end of sc round, sl st in top of the 1st st in round.
Cut yarn leaving a long enough tail needed to sew nose in place on your Three Little Pig(gies) hat during finishing off process before pulling through. Put your assembled nose/snout to side for now.

Ear front (Make 2): using darker contrast pink yarn
Round 1: Ch 8. Starting with 3rd ch from hook place 1 dc in this ch and 1 dc in the following 5 ch. Ch 2 and turn. (6 dc)
Round 2: Dc in 2nd st, skipping the 1st st, and place 1 dc in the following 4 st. Ch 2 and turn. (5 dc)
Round 3: Dc in 2nd st, skipping the 1st st, and place 1 dc in the following 3 st. Ch 2 and turn. (4 dc)
Round 4:  Dc in 2nd st, skipping the 1st st, and place 1 dc in the following 2 st. Ch 2 and turn. (3 dc)
Round 5:  Dc in 2nd st, skipping the 1st st, and place 1 dc in the following st. Ch 2 and turn. (2 dc)
Round 6:  Place 1 hdc in the 2nd st, skipping the 1st st. Sl st in to st. (1 hdc)
Cut yarn, pull through and fasten off.
Repeat for second ear front.

Ear back (Make 2): using main color pink yarn
For Ear Backs, repeat Rounds 1-6 from Ear Fronts but do not fasten off at end of Round 6.  You want to leave a long tail at the beginning of this part so you can sew it on to the beanie hat during assembly process.
Round 7:  Place one finished Ear Front in front of your Ear Back you are currently working on.  Ch 1 and place 1 sc in each of the st around.  I place 3 sc in each of the bottom corners and in the top most ear tip st to give it more of a rounded appearance.
Cut yarn, pull through and fasten off. You should still have your main color tail from Round 1 to attach ear during finishing off process. Do not fasten off this tail.

Finishing off:
Since I like to start adding my features from the bottom up we will start with Winnie the Pooh’s smile. I find that by working from bottom up you get a better idea of how much space you have during the process.  Otherwise you may find yourself scrunching up features at the bottom if you haven’t left enough space in your process. By working upwards you always have extra room as you can just move the next feature up a little higher if need be.
Using the tail left on the assembled nose/snout  from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle , sew the piece onto the desired place on the hat.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.) Once you have secured it into place, bring the yarn into the inside of the beanie hat and finish off.
Now we will assemble the pig’s eyes for this hat. Take the yarn tail left from one black eye  pupil and sew it into place onto one eye white.  Once sewn in place, pull yarn to back of eye and fasten off black yarn. Repeat this process for the second eye.
Next we will work on the attaching the pig(gies)’eyes.  Taking the white yarn tail left on your assembled eye sew it in to desired place. You can see my pictures to see where I placed mine on the face.
Once it’s sewn on, pull yarn in to the inside of the hat before finishing off. Repeat for second eye.
Now all that is left is to attach the pig’s ears on to the beanie. Sew each of the ears in place by using the leftover yarn tail (in main color yarn – pink) from when you crocheted the ears before directly on to the top sides of the beanie in your desired position.  You want to attach the ears with the contrast darker pink color facing forwards (your ear front).  Once secure, pull yarn in to inside of your hat before finishing off.  Repeat process for second ear.
Check for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any. Then you are all done. One little pig(gie) hat all ready to wear. Now you just need to repeat process for the other two pig(gies) to have a set. :)

Here are some additional pictures to show how the Three Little Pig(gies) beanie hat looks worn from different directions once crocheted:
