  Charlie Brown's Snoopy the Dog Character Hat Crochet Pattern

When making hats for my mother to wear during storytime in her classroom I had to make her a Snoopy hat just because who doesn’t like Snoopy? 😉  He is one of my favorite cartoon characters from my youth and I wanted to see how he would turn out in a crochet character hat. I’m pretty happy with how he turned out and I can’t wait for the the school year to start back up so that the kids can see the Snoopy hat.  I have a list that will keep me busy of book characters my Mom would love to have hats of for reading time so good thing I have a little bit of summer left to catch up!  Before we know it school will be back in session and I will be neck deep in holiday gift projects. :)

I hope you like my interpretation of Snoopy into a crochet character hat.  This is a beginner friendly pattern  and up so if you are new to making crochet character hats or crochet in general give it a try.  All you need to know is how to work in the round for the majority of this project.  You will be required to use a large blunt -eye yarn darning needle to sew the features on to the hat once crocheted.  If you have any questions, please let me know.  Happy crafting!

P.S. Here is the Snoopy picture I used for inspiration while designing this hat pattern.  I found it uplifting as well. :)

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 white yarn 

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start creating your beanie into a Snoopy hat. :)

Snout back *optional*: using white yarn
Note: This step is an optional step but one I highly recommend as it will prevent stuffing from slipping between stitches on to the wearers head when wearing hat as it stretches when worn. It can make it a bit itchy so I take this extra step to keep it where the stuffing belongs. :) 
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc in to the circle. Pull the circle closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in 1st st and 2 dc in each of the following 9 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next st* repeating * process for following 18 st around. Sl st in top of 1st st. (30 dc)
Fasten off and place to side until needed in assembly.

The above feature works great on youth, teen / preteen, womens and men sized hats.  For toddler sized hats I recommend scaling down the features by using a G or H hook instead or following infant sized hats instructions.  For infant sized hats (newborn to 12 months), instead of the instructions above, do the following steps instead:
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 hdc in to the circle. Pull the circle closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 hdc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 hdc in 1st st and 2 hdc in each of the following 9 st. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (20 hdc)

Round 3: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next st* repeating * process for following 18 st around. Sl st in top of 1st st. (30 dc)
Rounds 4-5: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in each of the following 29 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (30 dc)
Round 6: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each of the following 29 st around. Sl st in top of the 1st st in round. (30 sc)
Leave a long enough yarn tail to sew your snout on to the beanie hat during assembly *and* if you choose to do the snout back to sew the snout back on the snout opening before attaching to hat. Cut yarn once you measure out length, pull tail through last loop on hook and place to side until needed.

Ear Backs and Assembly (Make 2): using black yarn and completed ear fronts from previous steps
Repeat Rows 1-10 from Ear fronts but do not fasten off at end of Row 6 as you have with the ear fronts. Ch 1 and turn. Place one completed ear front in front of the ear back you are working on, lining up the stitches.
Row 11: 1 sc in each st around placing (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in both top corners of ears and 2 sc in the bottom 5 st to round out ear bottoms.
Leave a long yarn tail that will be used to sew your ear on to the Snoopy hat and secure it in place before you cut yarn. Pull yarn through loop on hook and place to side until needed in assembly.
Repeat process for second ear.

Eyebrows (Make 2): using black yarn
Make a chain of 5. Leave a tail long enough to sew these chains in to eyebrow arches above eyes on beanie hat (I normally guesstimate 2 to 3 times the length of chain I am sewing on) before cutting yarn and pulling through last loop on hook. Place to side until needed in assembly.
Repeat process for second eyebrow.

Smile: using black yarn
Make a chain of 25. Leaving a length of yarn at the end of the chain long enough to sew it in place on hat (I normally guesstimate 2 to 3 times the length of chain I am sewing on) before cutting yarn, pulling through last loop on the hook and place to side until needed.

The above feature works great on youth, teen / preteen, womens and men sized hats.  For toddler sized hats I recommend scaling down the features by using a G or H hook instead or following infant sized hats instructions.  For infant sized hats (newborn to 12 months), instead of the instructions above, do the following steps instead:  Make a chain of 16 instead of 25 as steps above call for.

Finishing off steps:
The following steps require that you have assembled all the above mentioned pieces. You should have
1- beanie hat
2- eyes
2 – eyebrows
1 – snout piece
1 – snout back (optional)
1 – black nose
2 – assembled ears
1 – shining light spot on nose

Charlie Brown's Snoopy the Dog Character Hat Crochet Patterm

Starting off with the nose/snout assembly, take the white yarn tail from the shining light spot and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it in place on to the black nose piece. No worries on where exactly to put it as it changes in Snoopy’s images based on how his head is tilted, facing etc. You can see in the pictures with this pattern where I place the shining light spot on my Snoopy hat. Once you have it secured in place, pull yarn to the back side of the nose and fasten off.
Next take the yarn tail from your black nose and use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the nose in desired place on front of nose/snout piece. I placed mine in the center top area so that when it’s stuffed it will be on the end of the snout but near the top like I saw in pictures of Snoopy online. Once you have it secured in place, pull yarn to the back side of the nose/snout piece and fasten off.
Now we are ready to put together the nose/snout piece. If you decided to do the optional snout back, use these instructions. If you chose not to do this feature part, skip to the next paragraph for instructions. Taking the tail left on your nose/snout piece, use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the snout back piece over the opening on your snout piece. I just line up my stitches before stitching back and forth until around the whole circle. You want to stop about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way around to stuff your snout piece. Do not overstuff as this will weigh it down too much causing sagging in surrounding area of beanie or bubble up the back making it awkward to attach or wear. Once you have it stuffed to your liking, finish sewing the opening closed. Now you are going to use the remaining yarn tail to attach the fully assembled nose/snout piece on to the beanie hat near the bottom of the front of your beanie. Once you have secured his snout in place, pull the yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off.
Taking the yarn tail left on one of his eyes, use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the eye in desired location above the attached snout. Once secure, pull yarn to the inside of the hat and fasten off. Repeat process with second eye.
Now Taking the yarn tail left on one of his eyebrows, use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the eye in desired location above one eye in an upside down curve. You can see my pictures on how I placed my own. Once secure, pull yarn to the inside of the hat and fasten off. Repeat process with second eyebrow.
Next up take the tail of the chain you made for his smile and using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle stitch his giant grin in place. You don’t have to center it like mine as he is often also seen with an off center grin so you can do that to if you like. Once secure, pull yarn to inside of the hat and fasten off.
Taking the yarn tail from one of his assembled ears, use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle  to sew the ear in place on the side of the hat. I made mine a little lower so they would hang just past hat, but if you want them shorter you can place them higher so there is not an overhang. It’s all in personal preference. On features like this, I tend to run another set of stitches on the inside to reinforce joining but it isn’t necessary to the hat’s function. I just get paranoid about things coming apart. Once you have secured it in place, pull the yarn to the inside of the beanie hat and fasten off.
Take the time now to double check your hat for any loose ends or tails that you might have missed during the assembly process. If you find any weave in and fasten off. All done!

Here are some additional pictures I had taken to show how this Snoopy the dog hat looks worn once it is completed from different angles:
