Hello Kitty Character Beanie Hat Free Crochet Pattern

Hello Kitty is just so darn cute and hard to resist.  I can’t help but be drawn to anything and everything HK.  I designed this pattern originally for a gift and at a request for an easy pattern for a beginner to be able to make her beloved Hello Kitty in to a character hat.  I loved it so much I made up my own to wear. :)  You will be surprised at how easy this actually is to make.  If you know how to work in the round, you can make us this beanie hat of Hello Kitty in a short amount of time.  It makes a fun hat to wear or a perfect gift for the Hello Kitty fan in your life.  I have a feeling this is going to be a highly requested gift for the holidays this year from my own family.

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 desired place long lengthwise, with each hdc and dc end of oval facing left /right.  Once secured, pull yarn to inside of hat before finishing off.
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.  You want these to have the long side facing up/down on your oval shaped eyes.  Once sewn on, pull yarn to inside of hat and finish off.  Repeat this process for second eye.
Now using the tail left behind on one of Hello Kitty’s ears, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure the ear to the side top area of the beanie in desired location. 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 extra length. Repeat this process for the second ear.
Next take the tail left on your bow center and use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure it in place on top of your bow main piece. Once firmly attached, use remaining tail and needle to sew your assembled bow directly on to your beanie hat in desired place. Normally you find it placed with the hat facing you in the top right just in front of ear in Hello Kitty images. Once you have secured your bow in place, pull yarn to inside and fasten 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.
All done! One Hello Kitty character hat crocheted and ready to wear! :)
This was a fun and quick hat project that I can’t wait to wear myself. It will make a great gift for Hello Kitty fans or for sweet crocheted baby hats. Happy crafting!
