Crochet Tutorial: Gorilla Hat

Whether it’s for a costume, a winter hat, or giving this for a gift, you will go bananas over this fun character hat and find it very a-peel-ing!! There’s a new musical animation film coming out in December. One of the characters from the movie inspired this cute earflap hat. I made this cutie patootie Gorilla Hat just in time for Halloween and the holidays! My nephew is a lil’ gorilla and makes the best model!!
