Mother Wolf Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern

 free crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com

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.

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: 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 own mother wolf 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.
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
Round 1:  In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 12 dc. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (12 dc)
Round 2:  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)
Round 3 – 4: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in first st and in each of the following 23 st around. 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: Ch 4, hdc in 3rd and 4th ch from hook. Ch 2 and turn. (2 hdc)
Round 2: Place 2 hdc in first st and following st. Sl st in to the side of last st. (4 hdc)
Leave long enough tail to sew on to the nose/snout front during next steps.

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 4 before placing 1 dc in 3rd ch from hook , 1 dc in next ch. Ch 2 and turn. (Note: beginning ch at start of round does not count as a stitch throughout these rounds) (2 dc)
Round 2:  Place 2 dc in 1st st and 2 dc in next st. Ch 2 and turn. (4 dc)
Round 3:  Place 2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next two st, and 2 dc in the last st. Ch 2 and turn. (6 dc)
Round 4:  Place 2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next 4 st, and 2 dc in the last st. Ch 2 and turn. (8 dc)
Round 5: Place 2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next 6 st, and 2 dc in the last st. Ch 2 and turn. (10 dc)
Round 6:Place 1 dc in each st across. Ch 2 and turn. (10 dc
Cut yarn, pull through and fasten off.
Repeat for second ear.

Ear Back and Assembly: (Make 2) in main color yarn
Rounds 1-6:  Repeat rounds 1-6 of ear front but do not fasten off at end of round 6. Place ear front in front of the ear back.
Round 7: 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 3 sc in each of the bottom 2 corner and topmost st in ear point.
Round 8: Ch 1 before working 1 sc in each st around the sides and top of ear, leaving bottom st unworked, sl st into corner
Cut yarn leaving long enough of a yarn tail 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 5 dc. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (5 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 Color: in light blue yarn or desired eye color
Round 1:  In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing  8 hdc. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (8  hdc)
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:  Place 2 dc in 1st st and each of the following 9 st.  Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round.
Cut yarn leaving long enough of a yarn tail to sew pupil on to eye 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.

Eyelids: in main color yarn
Round 1: Ch 10, sc in 2nd ch from hook, place 1 hdc in next 2 ch, 1 dc in next 3 ch, 1 hdc in next 2 ch, 1 sc in last ch. Ch 1 and turn. (9 st total)
Round 2:  Sc in 2nd st skipping 1st st, 1 hdc in next 2 st, 1 dc in next, 1 hdc in next 2 st, sctog last two st.
Leaving a tail long enough to secure to the eye once eyelashes are attached and cut yarn.

Eye lashes: in black yarn
For the eyelashes, I just freehand stitched the eyelashes on to the eyelid directly with black yarn and my Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle.  Just cut a length of yarn and stitch them in as you desire.  I just did some thick over exaggerated eyelashes but you can make them thin and more abundant. Whatever you feel like doing to make your mother wolf. :)
Once your eyelashes are in place, pull yarn to back of eyelid and fasten off. Put to side for until ready in assembly.

Finishing off:
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 mother wolf’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 by adding a pinch of fiberfill stuffing if desired or just simply sew them on flat.  Repeat for second eye.
Now take the yarn tail from a finished eyelid and sew it in place on top of eye. Pull yarn through to inside of hat before fastening it off.  Repeat for the second eye.
Now all that is left is to attach the mother wolf’s ear on to the beanie hat.  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 Mother Wolf Beanie hat! Enjoy your crocheted creation.

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