FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Winter Cat Hat

Christmas may be behind us, but the New Year is just ahead, or, if you live in a climate like mine, it really doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, my Winter Cat Hat is all you need to get through those cold and snowy days!!

This luxuriously cozy hat is not only functional, it is SO CUTE! You will be in style on the slopes or on the go with this fun and furry hat!!

There is no video tutorial to this pattern yet.

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos even if we don’t live together.
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.

Assembly Step: Use extra yarn to shape 2 ears in the top corners of the hat.  I just sewed a piece of yarn to make pointed ears and tied it off and wove in the ends.
