  Pompompurin “Purin” the Sanrio Dog Character Hat Free Crochet Pattern

Pompompurin, who is called Purin for short, is a golden retriever dog character first introduced by Sanrio, the creators of Hello Kitty, in 1996 . He is mostly depicted wearing his chocolate brown beret and with a curling smile on his face but you can find tons of images with him having different expressions if you want to change it up for your own beanie. He is also often found with the adorable Muffin (a little hamster friend), Scone ( a little mouse friend) and even a little bird friend. You can learn more about Purin and his friends here.

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 dark cream or light yellow yarn and contrast medium to dark brown colored yarn

Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice

We will start with the contrast medium to dark brown yarn for beginning of hat to create Purin’s beret look:
Beret – make first 4 rounds (first 3 rounds from pattern for newborn to 12 month sizes) in dark brown yarn from Easy Peasy pattern of your desired size as pattern calls for.
Insert Row 1: Insert in to easy peasy pattern 1 round of sc done in stitch pattern that easy peasy pattern calls for following row in front loops only. Fasten off  brown yarn.
Insert Row 2: Now sl st with dark cream or light yellow yarn on unworked back loop from previous row. Work one round of 1 sc in each st around. Sl st to top of 1st st in round.
Now resume pattern as how row 5 (row 4 for infant sizes) calls for from pattern not counting your insert rounds in your round total. Go ahead and work rest of hat as easy peasy pattern calls for in instructions.
Fasten off.
*Note: My beret insert Row 1 gave a flippy look when finished with the lip of the beret sticking out a bit. If you don’t like this look you can make Row 1 just another round of 1 sc each around in front loops only so it will lay more flat. Another option is to just create the beret as a separate piece as above instructions call for and just do one insert row of 1 sc around instead of above before sewing your beret on top of completed beanie.
Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to move on to creating the rest of your Purin hat.

Ch 9. Make a sl st in 2nd ch from and next ch. Ch 6.
Leave a long enough tail to be able to sew the mouth lines in place on your Purin hat during assembly before you cut yarn, pull through. 

Finishing off:
Starting with the nose, take the yarn tail from your nose and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew Purin’s nose in desired location on hat. I made my own just a little under halfway mark of rounds down in cream color, not counting the beret rounds in number but feel free to play around with your own but make sure you will have enough room to add your mouth lines. Once you have secured the nose fully in place, pull yarn to the inside of the beret and fastening off.
Now taking tail left at end of the mouth lines, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the mouth lines in shape of your preference I did the curly “W” shape I found in many of Purin’s pictures (You can see this in my pictures and Purin image near top of pattern for reference). Once you have his mouth secured in place, pull yarn to inside of the beanie and fasten off.
Next up take the tail from one of his eyes and using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle sew the eye to one side of the face area of your beanie. Again once secure, pull yarn to inside of beret before fastening off yarn. Repeat for second eye.
All that is left now is attaching Purin’s assembled ears from pattern instructions above. Using your  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and the tail left on one ear, sew it in desired place on side of beanie a little under the beret. You want to attach it by the / side of the top of the ear created by the st decrease of last few rows attaching it in a vertical manner. This is help your ears keep front facing ear appearance instead of hanging or floppy ears. Once you have the ears sewn in place, pull yarn to inside of hat. I like to reinforce the joining of large features, like ears, with a few more stitches on inside but it’s not necessary. Once done, fasten off. Repeat for the second ear.
Now just take the time to check over your work to see if there are any yarn tails or loose ends you may have missed before.  If you find any, go ahead and fasten them off now.
All done :) One super chibi cute golden retriever puppy named Purin hat ready to wear.
