Baby Wolf Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern Profile Picture

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. :)

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:

Mother Wolf Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern Picture  This is another crochet hat that I made for the children in my mother’s class she teaches in elementary school to wear during their play.  The mother wolf is a character in their play of a mash up of fairy tale characters.  She is the mother to the Baby Wolf, free pattern available here too.  I wanted to distinguish her from the Baby Wolf so I gave her sharper looking features like her ears and eyelashes. :)  Give her a try.  She’s a lot easier and less complicated than she looks.

Scissors or Yarn Cutter

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  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 you want for your project.

Hat Base:
Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice
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.
Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start on making your own Three Little Pig hat.

Eye Construction (Make 2):  

Inner Black Pupil of Eyes:
Round 1:  Starting off with your black yarn for the pupils of the eye, ch 1 (does not count as a st throughout pattern) before placing 6 sc in a magic circle. Pull circle tight before sl st in top of beginning st. ( 6 sc) Cut yarn leaving long enough tail to sew the pupil on to the eye white during assembly. Pull yarn through and sit to side until ready to assembly hat.
Repeat process for eye number 2.

Outer White Eye:
Round 1: Using white yarn, in a magic circle ch 2 before placing 10 dc. Pull circle closed before making a sl st in to the top of the 1st st from round. (10 dc)
Round 2:  Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st, 2 dc in next 7 st, 1 hdc in last two st. Sl st in to top of first st in round. (18 dc and 2 hdc)
Leave a long enough tail to sew your eyes directly on to the beanie during assembly before cutting your yarn and put to the side for now.
Repeat process for eye number 2.

Nostrils (make 2): Using black yarn
With black yarn, ch 4 before making 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in following ch and sl st into the last ch. Pull yarn through leaving a tail long enough to secure on to nose/snout during assembly. Repeat process for second nostril.

Nose  / Snout:
Round 1:  In magic circle with your contrast pink yarn, ch 1 before placing 6 sc in to circle. Pull circle closed and sl st in to the top of 1st st. (6 sc)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in first st and in each of the following 5 st. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. (12 sc)
Round 3:  Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st st, *place 1 sc in next st, 2 sc in following st* Repeat * around until end of round. Sl st in top of 1st st. (18 sc)
Round 4: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st st, *place 1 sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in following st* Repeat * around until end of round. Sl st in top of 1st st. (24 sc)
Round 5: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st st, *place 1 sc in next 3 st, 2 sc in following st* Repeat * around until end of round. Sl st in top of 1st st. (30 sc)
Cut yarn, pull through and fasten off.
This is a good time to pick up your nostrils you made before and sew them in place on the front of the nose.  Once you secure them, pull yarn through to inside/ back of nose and finish off.
Now switch to main color pink yarn, attach to where you left off on round 5 with a sl st.
Round 6-7: Ch 1 placing 1 sc in first st and each st around. Sl st in top of 1st st of round. (30 sc)
Round 8: Ch 1 placing 1 sc in first st and each st around. Sl st in top of 1st st of round. (30 sc)
Cut yarn leaving a long enough tail to attach nose back (optional step below) and nose/snout on to the beanie hat.

Nose back:  
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. :)
Repeat round 1-5 of nose front. Cut yarn and finish off.

Ear front (Make 2): Using darker pink contrast yarn and “H” hook
Round 1:  With your contrast pink yarn, ch 9. Starting in 4th ch from hook (first 3 ch counts as a dc in the ears), place 1 dc in 4th chain and each of the following 5 ch. Ch 3 and turn. (7 dc)
Round 2:  Dc in second st skipping 1st st, 1 dc in next 4 st. Ch 3 and turn. (6 dc)
Round 3:  Dc in 2nd st skipping 1st st, 1 dc in next 3 st. Ch 3 and turn. (5 dc)
Round 4:  Dc in 2nd st skipping 1st st, 1 dc in next 2 st. Ch 3 and turn. (4 dc)
Round 5:  Dc in 2nd st skipping 1st st, 1 dc in next st. (3 dc)
Cut yarn, pull through and fasten off.
Repeat process for second Ear.

Ear back (Make 2):
Repeat rounds 1-5 from ear front above but do not finish off after 5th round.

Ear assembly:
Round 6:  Place one ear front in front of the ear back you are working on. Ch 1 before working a round of sc around the perimeter of both in the color of your ear back to show a contrast ear trim in front.  I tend to put 2 sc in the side of dc st and 3 sc in tip plus corners.  Sl st back in to your first st. You can choose to fasten off here and reattach yarn to bottom corner to sew ear on to beanie or just work down one side to a corner with sl st down in each sc.  Leave long enough tail to be able to fix securely on to the beanie hat.

Finishing off:
Since I like to start adding my features from the bottom up we will start with the nose/snout pieces of the pig.  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.
Take the nose back and place it on top of the opening at the end of the snout / nose piece.  Using the tail you left in your previous steps for the nose, sew the nose back to close the opening. You will want to stop 1/2 to 2/3 of the way around in order to fill your snout with your fiberfill stuffing.  You don’t need much or it will end up giving the nose front a really rounded dome appearance instead of flat.  Do not cut off extra yarn from tail once sewed on!  You are now going to use this 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 pig’s eyes.  Take the tail from one black eye pupil and sew it into place on top of one of the outer eye whites. Once secure, pull yarn through to back and finish off.   Repeat process with other pupil and eye white.   Now take the white yarn tail 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.  Repeat for second eye.
Now all that is left is to attach the pig’s ear on to the beanie hat.  Sew each on by using the leftover yarn tail from when you crocheted the ears with the contrast dark pink yarn facing forwards on the hat.  Once secure, pull yarn in to inside of your hat before finishing 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. :) One crocheted Three Little Pigs beanie all ready to wear for storytime, costume or just everyday fun. Oink oink!

When my mother asked me to help out by making some hat and headwear costumes for her little students doing a class play on a mash up of fairy tale characters I couldn’t resist saying yes as I have so much fun making character hats.  I couldn’t find a pattern online that wasn’t too complicated or ornate. I just wanted a fast and easy hood to work up since I was doing so many of the costumed pieces in a short amount of time.  So I decided to wing it and I thought it turned out pretty okay so I wrote down the pattern in case anyone ever needs a Little Red Riding Hood hood. You never know right? 😉  This crochet pattern will work on Youth sized (3 -10 yrs), preteen, young adult, and adult women.   You can easily tailor it down in size for younger wearers or add some additional stitches to fit a larger woman or adult male.  Just make sure you increase or decrease stitches in multiples of 2.

Little Red Riding Hood’s Crocheted Hood Crochet Pattern for Classroom Play Notes

Project requires:

Red Colored Yarn for Hood – the brighter the better :)
(I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will be fine)
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern:

ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet 

Pattern Instructions:

Crochet Hood:

Starting with a foundation chain of 28.

Round 1: Dc in third ch from hook (First 2 ch does not counts as first dc the first dc worked in first st is 1st in round throughout pattern). Work 1 dc in each of the following ch across until end. Ch 2 and turn. (26 dc)

Round 2-39: Dc in first st and each of the following 25 st across until end. Ch 2 and turn. (26 dc)

Round 40: Dc in first st and each of the next 25 st across until end. Ch 1 and turn. (26 dc)

Round 41: Fold your hood in half so that you can make seam for the back of the hood. You should have 20 rows on each side above / below your fold. Ch 1 and slip st through both pieces in first st and each st until the corner. Slip st back into last st, pull yarn through and fasten off

Front Trim and Ties:

Chain 40.  Sl st to bottom right corner of hood front.  This will be your first tie. Ch 2 and work 1 dc in each st around the front part of hood to bottom left corner. Sl st down side of last dc worked before ch 40 for last tie.

Cut yarn, pull through and fasten it off. Now you have one quick and easy Little Red Riding Hood’s crocheted hood. :) In this case it is for Kindergarten class play but it can easily be used for a costume, part of a cosplay outfit or to use as a pattern for a hood to add to other projects.

If you are interested in adding a capelet or cape to the hood, just work a circle type of increase all the bottom back and forth until width of shoulders. Then just work 1 dc in each round until length desired. I may even give this a shot for next year’s class or Halloween even :)

Grandma's Kerchief Crochet Pattern Picture

When my mother asked me to help out by making some hat costumes for her little ones doing a class play on a mash up of fairy tale characters I couldn’t say no.  I made this pattern up to whip something up quickly for Little Red Riding Hood’s Grandma to wear in the class play. This Kerchief crochet pattern will work on Youth sized (3 -10 yrs) as a larger cover for the head but normal fit for preteen, young adult, and adult women.  Even though this was created as a costume piece it can definitely be used as a normal head covering and would look amazing in some vibrant colors too.  So here it  is:

Grandma’s Large and Fast Kerchief Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:

Main Colored Yarn for Kerchief
(I use a lot of Red Heart saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will be fine)
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern:

ch – chain
ch-1 sp  – chain 1 space in between stitches
ch-3 sp -chain 3 space in between stitches
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet 

Pattern Instructions:

Starting with a foundation chain of 41.
Round 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, *ch 1, skip next st, sc in following st* continue until the end. Ch 4 and turn.
Round 2: Work 1 dc in first ch-1 sp,  *ch 3, work 1 dc in next ch-1 sp* repeat * until end of row. Sl st into the last ch-3 sp created, ch 4 and turn.
Round 3 – 20: Work 1 dc in to the first ch-3 sp, *ch 3, work 1 dc in next ch-3 sp* repeat * until end of row. Sl st into the last ch-3 sp created, ch 4 and turn.  You will notice that in each round your kerchief will be getting one ch-3 sp smaller than previous round. This will give it the nice triangular shape. Repeat round 3 until you finish last round leaving 1 ch-3 sp. In Round 20, dc in last sp as previous rounds. Sl st into the side of ch 3 sp you just created. Ch 1 and turn.
Round 21: Turn piece so you are now working counter clockwise from where you left out.  Place 2 sc in the side of each ch -3 space until you reach the right top corner. Place 2 sc in corner. Chain 41. Work 1 sc in second ch from hook and each of the following 39 st. Sl st back into st you started ch from. Continue working to the left putting 1 sc in each st across to the left corner. Sl st in to corner before making a chain of 41. Like before starting at 2nd ch from hook work 1 sc in each st back down to corner, sl st into st before placing two sc.  Turn piece so you are working last side of the triangle placing 2 sc in the side of each ch-3 sp until you are back at the beginning of round. Sl st to first st in round.

Cut yarn, pull through and fasten off.  All done!

Want a bit of a color pop to add to your crocheted kerchief?  Try doing that round with ties in a contrasting shade of yarn. :)
