Rochelle’s Pretty Purple Chick Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern  

This hat was designed for one of amazing Juvenile Arthritis kids mother, Rochelle, who also has Autoimmune Arthritis. When she heard I was making our walk team Chick hats to wear she was a bit bummed as she is a part of her son’s arthritis walk team Parker’s Purple Playas.  So this pretty purple chick designed was created to bring together the RA Chicks chick idea with Parker’s purple. I even topped her off with an arthritis awareness blue bow. Of course you can feel free to switch up the colors to whatever you like but I had to share the instruction for arthritis awareness since I’m a health activist for Autoimmune Arthritis. :)

Rochelle’s Pretty Purple Chick Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Profile

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 Peas Pre-Teen / Teen / Women Double Crochet Beanie Pattern, which you can find  here as a foundation for the projectWant 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: in main color purple yarn
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 pretty purple chick hat. :)
First we are going to add a simple lighter purple contrast trim to the beanie base. Taking your contrast color yarn, attach with a sl st where you left off at last round of your beanie.  Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each st around.  Sl st in top of 1st st in round and fasten off.

Feathered Hair on top of hat: using lighter purple yarn 
Ch 10, sl st in to last ch from hook. Ch 15, sl st back in to the ch you just worked ch from. Ch 10 and sl st back into starting ch.
Leave a long enough tail to secure your hair feathers on top of the beanie during assembly, before cutting yarn and pulling through. Now place this to the side until finishing steps.

Eye Pupils (Make 2): using black yarn
Round 1:  In magic circle, ch 2 before placing  8 hdc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed. Sl st in to the top of 1st st in round. (8 hdc)
Leave a long enough yarn tail to be able to sew your eye pupil in place on eye white during finishing steps before cutting yarn. Sit to side until needed.
Repeat process for second eye pupil.

This eye pupil will work well on toddler to adult sized hats. For newborn to 12 month sized hats, your pupil will be as follows instead of Round 1 above:
Round 1:  In magic circle, ch 1 before placing 4 sc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed. Sl st in to the top of 1st st in round. (4 sc)

Eye Whites (Make 2): using white yarn
Round 1:  In magic circle, ch 2 before placing  12 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed. Sl st in to the top of 1st st in round. (12 dc)
Leave a long enough yarn tail to be able to sew your eye whites directly on to the beanie during hat assembly.
Repeat process for second eye.

This eye white design will work well on toddler to adult sized beanie hats. For newborn to 12 month sized hats, you will work 10 hdc instead of 12 dc in to your circle in Round 1.

Beak: using orange yarn
Round 1:  In magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 hdc in circle. Pull circle closed and sl st in top of 1st st in round. (10 hdc)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 2nd st, leaving 1st st unworked, place 1 sc in next 3 st, sl st in next st, stopping here and leaving rest of st unworked. (4 sc)
Make sure you leave a yarn tail long enough to be able to sew your beak in place on beanie before cutting yarn, pulling through and putting to side until needed in assembly stage.

This beak will work on toddler through adult sized hats.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, do the following:
Round 1:  In magic circle, ch 1 before placing 8 sc in circle. Pull circle closed and sl st in top of 1st st in round. (8 sc)
Round 2: Sl st in 2nd st, leaving 1st st unworked, ch 1 place 1 sc in next  st, ch 1 before sl st in next st, stopping here and leaving rest of st unworked.

Bow:  using arthritis awareness blue yarn
Row 1: Ch 14, work 1 dc in the 3rd ch from hook (first 2 ch does not count as st throughout pattern) and place 1 dc in each of the following 11 ch.  Ch 2 and turn. (12 dc)
Row 2: Make 1 dc in 1st st and place 1 dc in each of the following 11 st across. Ch 2 and turn. (12 dc)
Row 3: Make 1 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in each of the following st across. Ch 1 and turn. (12 dc)
Row 4: Work a round of 1 sc in each st, 3 sc in each corner to give a more rounded appearance, completely around the perimeter of your bow piece. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st once you have worked it all the way around.
Make sure you leave a long enough tail to secure your bow in place on the beanie hat during finishing off steps.

This size bow will work great on toddler through adult sized hats.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, do the following:
 Row 1: Ch 10, work 1 hdc in the 3rd ch from hook (first 2 ch does not count as st throughout pattern) and place 1 hdc in each of the following 7 ch.  Ch 2 and turn. (8 hdc)
Row 2: Make 1 hdc in 1st st and place 1 hdc in each of the following 7 st across. Ch 2 and turn. (8 hdc)
Row 3: Make 1 hdc in 1st st and 1 hdc in each of the following st across. Ch 1 and turn. (8 hdc)

Row 4: Work a round of 1 sc in each st, 3 sc in each corner to give a more rounded appearance, completely around the perimeter of your bow piece. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st once you have worked it all the way around. 

Rochelle's Pretty Purple Chick Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Closeup on feature details

Finishing off:
Starting from the bottom up, use the tail left on the orange beak and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew your Chick’s beak in place on beanie hat.  You can reference my pictures on how I placed mine. Once your beak is fully secured,  pull your yarn to inside of hat before finishing off.
Using tail on one black eye pupil and needle, sew it in place securely on top of an eye white.  Once secure, pull yarn to back of eye then fasten off.  Repeat this process for second eye.
Now you want to use the tail from one assembled eye and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew one eye in to the proper place on beanie. You can reference my pictures as to where I placed them on my hat.  Once sewn on, pull yarn to inside of hat and finish off.  Now go ahead and repeat this process for second eye.
Next take the tail left on your blue hairbow for Chick hat and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew in to your desired location 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.
Using tail left on your feathered “hair” you made earlier, secure it in to place on the top of your chick hat.  I centered mine on the center of the original round on the beanie but feel free to play around with where you want to place yours.  Once you have sewn it in place, pull yarn to inside of beanie and fasten off.
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.

Here are some pictures to show how the completed Purple Chick hat looks like worn from different angles once you are all done:

Chococat the Black Cat Character Hat Crochet Pattern

I made up this crochet pattern for my future stepdaughter.  This is Chococat from Hello Kitty’s world, Sanrio.  I think this kitty translated pretty well to crochet. I almost didn’t want to let this black cat hat go.. My friends all raved over how it turned out and I’ve had several requests to make additional copies for them so I will take that as a good sign.  It’s a fun but quick crochet project that can be done in one afternoon.  Learn more about the character Chococat here.

  Chibi Baby Girl Panda Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Profile Picture

I fell in love with this sweet baby girl panda hat as I crocheted the pieces and assembled it.  I think it is just downright adorable but I could be a bit biased on that. 😉  What is more cute than a panda? A baby panda!  My soon to be stepdaughter adores pandas so I’m sure she will try to steal this one but it will be hard to let it go.  Maybe I will make up a second one for myself once I finish all my works in progress.

Chibi Baby Girl Panda Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Closeup on Face Features

Finishing off:
Starting from the bottom up, use the tail left on your nose and Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew your nose in place on beanie hat. Use extra tail length to freehand stitch on a mouth one nose is secure. You can reference my pictures on how I placed mine. Once mouth is complete, pull your yarn to inside of hat before finishing off.
Next take the tail left over from one of the blush circles and sew it in place on either side of the mouth near bottom of panda hat. Once securely in place, pull yarn to inside before fastening off. Now repeat this process for the second blush circle.
Using tail on one eye pupil, sew it in place securely on top of an eye white.  I centered mine on the eye white. Once secure, pull yarn to back of eye then fasten off.  Repeat this process for second eye.
Once you have the previous step done for the eye whites and pupil, you are ready to attach the eyes on to the black eye area ovals. Use the white yarn tail left from the eye white and Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew them on to the black eye area.  You can see my pictures to see how I placed mine but feel free to mix it up.  Repeat this process for second eye.
Now you want to use the tail from one assembled eye (which should be long black yarn tail from your black eye area) and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew one eye in to the proper place on beanie. You can reference my pictures as to where I placed them on my chibi panda hat.   Once sewn on, pull yarn to inside of hat and finish off.  Now go ahead and repeat this process for second eye.
Next using the tail left behind on one of the panda ears, use your 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.)  Once you have it in place, pull your yarn in to the inside of the beanie before finishing off any extra length.  Repeat this process for the second ear.
Taking the long tail from your bow circle, sew it in place on center of your bow base.  You will then use extra length to sew your assembled bow directly on to your beanie hat.  Once secure pull your yarn to inside of hat before fastening off.
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.

I absolutely adore this chibi panda hat I made up one afternoon.  Normally I make hats with a certain person or requested character.  This one just came to me while working on another hat and I had to make it.  Just like many of my projects I fell in love with it during assembly process. <3 Happy crafting!

Here are some of the pictures I took to show how this Chibi Baby Girl Panda hat looks from different directions when completed:

Cinnamoroll Cinnamon the Puppy Character Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern laying flat profile pattern view

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!

Fasten off and put down until ready to attach to ear back.

Ear Back (Make 2): using white main color yarn
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.
Fasten off once one round is completed and sl st to beginning st.

Attach “cinnamon” colored yarn to the mouth with a sl st in a st.  Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in each st but place 3 sc in the top two corners of mouth and in bottom dc st in curve to give it a more rounded appearance if desired.

Finishing off:
Starting from the bottom up, use the tail left on your mouth and Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew your mouth on the beanie hat.  Once your mouth piece is secured, pull yarn to inside of hat before finishing off.
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.

Here are some of the pictures I took to show how my Cinnamoroll “Cinnamon” the Puppy Character Beanie Hat looks like from different directions when completed:

Easy Anime Inspired Bunny Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Face Close Up

Finishing off:

Tip: 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.

You are now going to use this the tail left on your nose from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the nose into the desired place on the white face area.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.) Once you have secured it into place, bring the yarn into the back side of the face area before finishing off.
Next we will attach the face area to your beanie hat. Using the tail left on the face area circle and yarn needle secure the face area in place on to the beanie hat.  Pull yarn in to the inside of beanie once sewn on and fasten off.
Next we will work on the eyes.  Take the yarn tail left from one eye and sew it into place on to the hat using yarn needle.   Once it’s sewn in place, pull yarn in to the inside of the hat before finishing off. Repeat for second eye.
Using the tail left behind on one of the ears, use your needle to secure the ear to the top of the beanie in desired location with the contrast white yarn (or desired color) facing forward on hat.  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.  I would love to see your version of my anime inspired bunny hat if you make one, just drop me a link. :)

Skippyjon Jones Book Character Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Laying Flat

When I started making hats for my mother’s classroom, Skippyjon Jones was brought up a few dozen times at least. Apparently he is a very popular children’s book character and my nephew was horrified that I did not know who he was. lol So I ended up making up this guy for my nephew and  one in adult size for the auction at my mother’s school to raise funds.  I donated this in addition to a Winnie the pooh hat, a Keroppi hat, and a Diary of a Wimpy Kid hat.   I was shocked to find out about the bidding war going over these character hats.  Almost all sold for $50 to $60 each!  So many people were unhappy that they did not win, they begged my mother for me to make more for them to purchase.  I guess you can say I now have been recruited to make an entire army of SkippyJon Jones hats..

Make sure you leave a long enough tail to be able to sew your face area once assembled in place on the beanie hat before cutting yarn and pulling through.
For infant through 12 months sizes, skip Row 6 and 7 increases for face area. This means you will sl st in the first 5 st in Row 8 instead of 7.

For infant through 12 months sizes, make start with a chain of 12 and work hdc stitches instead of dc throughout ear front.

Ear Back (Make 2): using darkest brown yarn
Leave a long enough yarn tail to secure ear when finished at start of your ear backs. I tend to estimate roughly 3 to 4 times the length I will be stitching to be on the safe side.
Starting off leaving the tail, repeat rows 1-7 from Ear Fronts in previous step but do not fasten off at the end of Row 7.  Ch 1 and turn.  Place a completed ear front in front of the ear back you are working on, lining up the stitches.
Row 8: With the lighter colored ear front facing you, work 2 sc in to the top st of both pieces, work 1 sc in each st down side of ear pieces, working 3 sc in each of the bottom corners. Continue working 1 sc in each side stitch of ears up to 1st st. Place 1 sc in same sp as 1st st in round. Sl st and fasten off.

Skippyjon Jones Book Character Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Zoom In on Face Details

Finishing off:
You are now going to use this the tail left on your finished nose from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the nose on to the face area piece into 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, use remaining tail to freehand stitch your mouth lines from bottom of nose (see picture above) before bringing the yarn to the back of the face area and finish off.
Now you have a completed face area piece, so using the tail left on your face area from before, sew your face area securely in place on your beanie hat.  I normally start mine at the bottom roughly 1 dc round up from bottom of the beanie but feel free to play around with it.
Next we will work on Skippyjon Jones’ eyes.  Take the yarn tail left from one eye pupil and sew it into place on to blue eye color piece .  Once it’s sewn on, pull yarn in to the inside of the hat before finishing off. Repeat for second eye.
You should now have two completed eyes and each should still have a long blue yarn tail. You want to use this and your darning / tapestry needle now to sew them in place on each side of the narrow nose color from face area on to beanie hat.  Once secure, pull yarn to inside of beanie before fastening off.
Now all that is left is to attach Skippyjon’s ears on to the beanie.  Sew each of the ears in place by using the leftover yarn tail from your assembled ears you crocheted before directly on to the top sides of the beanie in your desired position.  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 completed

Here are some of the pictures I took to show how this Skippyjon Jones hat looks worn and from different directions when completed:

Black Yarn for eye pupil and smile
Pink Yarn for blush circles
White Yarn for eye whites
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends
Small amount of fiberfill stuffing

Abbreviations used in this pattern:

ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
sctog – single crochet two st together (US)
dc – double crochet  (US)
hdc – half double crochet (US)

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  Pre-Teen / Teen / Women Double Crochet Beanie 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: in main color yarn
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 Keroppi the Frog hat!

 Note: If you are going to do this in newborn / infant/ up to 1 year old sizes, switch to a G hook for the features instead of the J to scale them down in size or eliminate one increase row from each feature worked in the round.

Eyes back piece (Make 2):  in white yarn (optional)

Note:  This is an optional step but I do recommend doing this step as it keeps your stuffing in the snout and now falling through the stitches when the hat is worn since they stretch to conform to head.

Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and in each of the following 9 st. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Pull yarn through and fasten off.  Put to side until needed in eye assembly.
Repeat for second eye.

Eyes (Make 2): Using white yarn
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and in each of the following 9 st. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in first st and in each of the following 19 st. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Before you cut your yarn make sure you leave a tail long enough sew your eyes on to your beanie hat and attach the eyes back if you choose to do this optional step.
Repeat for second eye.

Eye Pupil (Make 2): using black yarn
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing  8 dc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (8 dc)
Cut your yarn making sure you leave a tail long enough  to sew the eye pupils on to Keroppi’s eyes.
Repeat for second eye.

Blush Circles (Make 2): using pink yarn
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing  10 dc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (10 dc)
Make sure you leave a tail long enough sew the blush circle in place on to your beanie hat.
Repeat for second blush circle.

Smile: Using black yarn
Make 1 chain of  9 ch and leave tail to sew this chain into  a v shaped smile like in pictures.

Finishing off:
Since I like to start adding my features from the bottom up we will start with Keroppi’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.You are now going to use this the tail left for the smile chain from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the main smile piece into the desired place on the hat in a “v” shape.  (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.
Next we will work on attaching the pink blush circles. These should be located on each side of smile on face near bottom of where you plan to attach the eyes.  Using the tail on one circle and needle secure Keroppi’s blush circle in place on to the beanie hat.  Pull yarn in to the inside of beanie once sewn on and fasten off. Repeat with second blush circle.
Next we will work on his eyes.  Take the yarn tail left from one assembled eye and sew it into place on to the hat.   Once it’s sewn on, pull yarn in to the inside of the hat before finishing off. Repeat for second eye.
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. :)  You have one easy but fun Keroppi hat to wear. I’m completely in love with this little hat and will have to make one of my own to keep since this one is headed to an auction to benefit a school. I would love to see your version if you make one, just drop me a link. :)

Here are some of the pictures I took to show how it looks worn and from different directions when completed:

Repeat rounds 1-3 of Ear Fronts in previous step but do not fasten off at end of round 3.  Placing one ear front in front of your ear back you are working on, continue working the following through both pieces at same time.
Round 4: Ch 1 before working 1 sc in first 6 st, then alternate 1 sc then 2 sc repeatedly until back at first st in round. Sl st in to top of 1st st in round.
Leave a long enough tail to be able to sew your ear in place on the beanie hat before cutting yarn and pulling through.

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.
You are now going to use this the tail left on the large smile chain from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the main smile piece into 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.
Next we will work on attaching the nose/snout that was assembled previously.  Use the tail left behind and needle to secure the nose/snout piece in place on to the beanie hat.  Pull yarn in to the inside of beanie once sewn on and fasten off.
Next we will work on the Winnie’s eyes.  Take the yarn tail left from one eye and sew it into place on to the hat. Note that you want the oval of yes to have the narrow sides on top and bottom whereas the long ends facing sides.  Once it’s sewn on, pull yarn in to the inside of the hat before finishing off. Repeat for second eye.
Next we will work on the Winnie’s eyebrows.  Take the yarn tail left from one eyebrow chain and sew it into place on to the hat above the eyes you just attached.  Once it’s sewn on, pull yarn in to the inside of the hat before finishing off.   Repeat for second eyebrow.
Now all that is left is to attach Pooh’s ears on to the beanie.  Sew each of the ears in place by using the leftover yarn tail from when you crocheted the ears before directly on to the top sides of the beanie in your desired position.  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 completed Pooh Bear hat! Enjoy your crocheted creation.
All done!  You have one easy Winnie the Pooh Bear Beanie Hat to show off.  I’ve gotten such great responses from my completed one so far. I would love to see your version if you make one, just drop me a link. :)

This baby wolf crochet hat was another one of my project hats my mother, who is a teacher, requested for the children to wear in classroom play. The play is a mash up of different fairy tales together. This character is on a quest to find a teddy bear.  I also made a Mother Wolf hat you can get here for free too!  I’m partial to this little guy though.  He makes a great children’s hat. :)

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:

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 baby wolf  cub crochet hat!

 If you are going to do this in newborn / infant/ up to 1 year old sizes, switch to a G hook for the features instead of the J to scale them down in size.

Nose back:  in main color yarn
This is an optional step but I do recommend doing this step as it keeps your stuffing in the snout and now falling through the stitches when the hat is worn since they stretch to conform to head.
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing 12 dc. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (12 dc)
Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and in each of the following 11 st. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (24 dc)
Pull yarn through and fasten off.  Put to side until needed in nose assembly.

Nose / Snout: in main color yarn and white yarn as specified
Round 1:  In a magic circle, starting with gray yarn ch 2 before placing 6 dc. Pick up white yarn and make 2 dc in white. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (8 dc)
Round 2:  Pick up gray yarn, ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and in each of the following 5 st. Pick up white yarn and place 2 dc in next 2 st. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (16 dc)
Round 3: Pick up gray yarn, ch 2 before placing *2 dc in first st, 1 dc  in next st* repeat until you have 19 dc in gray. Pick up white yarn to finish rest of st in pattern.  Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in the round. (24 dc)
Before cutting yarn make sure you leave a long enough tail to secure the nose back to end of the snout and then attach it to the beanie hat during assembly.  Put to side for moment.

Nose Tip: in black yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 8 sc. Sl st to top of 1st st in round. (8 sc)
Leave long enough tail to sew on to the nose/snout front during next steps before cutting yarn and pulling through.

Nose Assembly:
Starting with Nose Tip from previous step, use the tail and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure your nose tip into position on front of the Nose/ Snout.  I then used the extra length of the tail to freehand stitch on the mouth lines directly on to the nose front.  Once you have done this pull yarn through to inside of snout once fully attached and fasten off.
Next line your Nose Back up to the opening of the Nose/ Snout piece. Using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and tail from nose/snout, begin sewing the two together to make one complete piece.  You want to stop about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way to lightly stuff the snout with some fiberfill stuffing (or chosen filler) to maintain the shape desired.  Finish sewing the two pieces together and place to the side leaving remaining tail on piece to secure to hat during finishing off process.

Ear Front: (Make 2) in pink yarn
Round 1:  Ch 10 before placing 1 dc in 3rd ch from hook and 1 dc in next 7 ch. Ch 2 and turn. (Note: beginning ch at start of round does not count as a stitch throughout these rounds) (8 dc)
Round 2:  Place 1 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in following 7 st. Ch 2 and turn. (8 dc)
Round 3:  Dctog 1st and 2nd together. 1 dc in next 4 st, and dctog the last 2 st. Ch 2 and turn. (6 dc)
Round 4:  Dctog 1st and 2nd together. 1 dc in next 2 st, and dctog the last 2 st. Ch 2 and turn. (4 dc)
Cut yarn, pull through and fasten off.
Repeat for second ear.

Ear Back and Assembly: (Make 2) in main color yarn
Rounds 1-4:  Repeat rounds 1-6 of ear front but do not fasten off at end of round 4. Place ear front (Pink) in front of the ear back (Gray).
Round 5: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in each st around the perimeter of the ear working through both ear pieces (front and back) at once. To make more rounded ear like in pictures, place 2 sc in each of the 5  stitches at top of ear curve. Sl st to bottom corner.
Cut yarn making sure you leave a long enough tail of yarn to sew the ears on to beanie hat during final assembly. Put to side until assembly steps.
Repeat for second ear.

Eye Pupil:in black yarn
Round 1:  In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 6 sc. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (6 sc)
Cut yarn leaving long enough of a yarn tail to sew pupil on to eye during assembly. Put to side until assembly steps.

Eye Color: in light blue yarn or desired eye color
Round 1:  In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing  10 dc. Do not pull tightly closed. We want a loose circle to expand the color the right amount. Just pull the circle closed enough that the last and first st are touching. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (10 dc)
Cut yarn leaving long enough of a yarn tail to sew pupil on to eye during assembly. Put to side until assembly steps.

Eye White:
Round 1:  In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (10 dc)
Round 2:  Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in 1st st and each of the following 9 st.  Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 1. Place 1 sc in each st around starting with 1st st. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (20 sc)
Cut yarn leaving long enough of a yarn tail to sew on eye to hat during assembly and pull through to back. Put to side until assembly steps.

Eye Assembly:
Starting with your eye color, use yarn needle and tail to sew it on to the eye white in the position you desire. You can refer to my pictures to see how I placed mine. Once secure, pull yarn through back and fasten off.
Now using the tail from the eye pupil, attach the pupil in front of the eye color attached in previous step.  Pull yarn through to back side and fasten off.

Finishing off hat steps:

Since I like to start adding my features from the bottom up we will start with the nose/snout pieces of the mother wolf.  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.
You are now going to use this the tail left on the nose/ snout and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it into place on the hat.  Once you have secured it into place, bring the yarn into the inside of the beanie hat and finish off.
Next we will work on the baby wolf cub’s eyes.  Take the white yarn tail left from one assembled eye and sew it into place on to the hat. Once it’s all sewn on, pull yarn in to the inside of the hat before finishing off.   I attached mine in a tighter stitch to give it more of a domed appearance to the eye.  You can exaggerate this domed appearance by adding a pinch of fiberfill stuffing if desired or just simply sew them on flat.  Repeat for second eye.
Now all that is left is to attach the baby wolf cub’s ear on to the beanie.  Sew each of the ears in place by using the leftover yarn tail from when you crocheted the ears with the pink yarn facing forwards on the hat.  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 completed little Baby Wolf Cub hat! Enjoy your crocheted creation.

Here are pictures to show how it looks worn and from different directions when completed:
