Crochet Tutorial: Owl Be Warm Hat

Crochet Tutorial: Owl Be Warm Hat

The Owl Be Warm Hat is such a fabulous hat for your winter wardrobe!! Use Hygge Yarn from Red Heart Yarns to add mounds of texture to this fluffy piece! Change things up with this hat to make it uniquely your own–Eye color, Pom Poms, and yarn color can give this owl different characteristics! Even if you don’t want the owl look, you can create a plain hat with poms and crocodile stitch earflaps and still have a wonderful hat! This hat is sure to be a real “hoot” in a crowd!!

 

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.

  1. I want to make this for a newborn. One of the yarns used is wool which I know is not recommended for babies. Which yarn would you recommend as a substitution? Thanks
