Crochet Puppy Hat Pattern


Ask and you shall receive! I've had many requests for a puppy hat from my Facebook readers over the past couple months so this pattern was quickly bumped to the top of the to-do list! I also wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has been so kind and supportive of me and my blog. I've received so many wonderful comments and e-mails lately. Thank You! It really means a lot to me and keeps me motivated to keep on crafting and crocheting!

Before we begin let me remind you of some basic directions you should follow while crocheting my hats:
- Always start your rounds in the same stitch as your chain.
- Always join your rounds to the first DC, NOT the chain.
- Your last stitch should be in the stitch before your chain.
- Do NOT count the chain 2 as a stitch.

(You can find pictures of how to start and join your rounds HERE)


Materials:
- Vanna's Choice yarn: I used Oatmeal for the base of the hat. Rust, Pink and Dusty Blue for accent colors on the hats in the pictures displayed. Chocolate Brown for nose and mouth and White to sew the button eyes on and in the braided tails. All yarn can be purchase at lionbrand.com
- Two 1" brown buttons for eyes
- Crochet hook size H-8 (5.0 mm)
- Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
ch - chain
sl st- slip stitch
SC - Single Crochet
SC Decrease - Single Crochet Decrease
DC - Double Crochet
HDC - Half Double Crochet
Magic Ring - Find a great tutorial including video HERE

Gauge: 2" across = 7 stitches, 2" height = 4 rows

Second earflap placement: Fold hat in half leaving slightly more stitches in the front of the hat than the back. Place the second earflap to line up with the first earflap (between the red arrows in this picture).

Attach yarn at the tip of the earflap and being single crocheting around entire edge of hat


Braided Tails: Cut three 1 yard strands of each color (9 strands total). Pass through last space in earflap. You should now have 18 strands to braid with.
Make knot and braid approx 5.5 inches long, knot, trim ends.
__________________________________________

Ears (make two of each):
Outside of Ears:Chain 6, HDC in 2nd Chain from hook, HDC across, chain 1, turn (5 HDC)
Row 2-6: HDC across (5 HDC), chain 1, turn
(This is where you could continue Making rows of HDC's to make the ear longer. To make the ear wider, start with a longer chain. )
Row 7: HDC decrease, HDC, HDC decrease, continue to SC around and when you get to the top, make two HDC decrease right before Sl St to join, fasten off
Note: It helps to make 2 SC in each bottom corners.

Inside of Ear:
Chain 4, HDC in 2nd Ch from hook, HDC across (3 HDC), chain 1, turn
Row 2-5: HDC across (3 HDC), chain 1, turn
at the end of Row 5, continue to SC around and when you get to the top, make two HDC decrease right before Sl St to join, fasten off

Note: It helps to make 2 SC in each bottom corners.

Sew the inside of the ear to the outside of the ear but be careful to sew only on the inside stitches so the yarn doesn't show through the outer ear.

Sew finished ear to hat. I placed mine at about the 3rd round.



Eye Patch:
Magic Ring, Chain 2 and make 8 HDC in ring, join to first HDC, chain 2
Round 2: 2 HDC in first two stitches, 2 DC in next 4 stitches, 2 HDC in last two stitches, join to first HDC, fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto hat.

To make the eye patch larger, continue with Round 3 by making 2 SC or HDC (depending on how big you want it) in each stitch around.

Want to make a puppy love hat? Crochet a heart instead of a circle for the eye patch. I followed THIS free heart pattern but stopped after round 2.


Nose:
Chain 5, HDC in second chain from hook, HDC in next two stitches, 2 HDC in last stitch,
now working on opposite side of chain, HDC in next 3, 2 HDC in last stitch, fasten off leaving long tail to sew nose onto hat.

    Would you happen to have a good pattern for a brimmed hat? I've really never cared for the brims that I've put on hats, they don't seem to have any body.
    Much appreciated - Ellie

  23. Thank you for the video!! Adorable pattern (as are all of yours), as soon as I showed my 5 yo the picture & told him the pattern was out, he started hopping around the living room "can you make me one?! Can you make me on pleeeeeeeease?!" Of course I started right then. I think I'm a little confused one how to make the outer ear though & which end of it to attach to the hat. I'll do my best to figure it out. Thank you for all the wonderful patterns, I really love them!!

  30. fabulous, and so happy to see that you also do not count the ch2 as a stitch, and don't join to it either, that always makes holes and yet so many patterns still do it that way! Thanks so much for sharing on Craft Schooling sunday!

  31. This is so adorable just all the other ones you posted! I have one question....where did you get the brown buttons? I live in a small town. No craft stores around. Do you get them for a craft store or the internet? I really would appreciate your reply!!!

  39. I love your hat! Thank you for publishing it for us. I do need your help though! I am a new crocheter and still struggling with the basics a bit. I make this hat for my 3 year old son (using the pattern for the preschool) and the hat is almost too big for me! Obviously my gage is out, but how do I know how to fix it? I know I need a smaller needle, but how do I know how small to go?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi. I always know to go up a hook size because I crochet tight. If you hats are coming out too big, try going down a hook size or 2. Once you feel it is at the size it should be then you know how to adjust for patterns. I ALWAYS have to go up a hook size...not just for these patterns. Hope this helps. The preschooler size should fit a 1-3 yr old.

  40. LOVE this!!!! I made this for a friend for her new baby boy arriving in a few weeks, and she just LOVES it. Thank you sooo much for all your free patterns and other crafts. I just love checking to see what is new that you're doing! Really looking forward to the new bunny pattern!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love these! They are awesome! I did find a trick with the heart patch though that I wanted to share. I always found that I ended up with a circle or hole in the middle of my heart that I didn't like. Maybe it is just me, but I couldn't seem to make it go away. What did finally work is I used the magic circle! I chained 3 and then followed the directions only doing the stiches into the magic circle instead of the first of the 4 chains. Works awesome! Flawless heart everytime!

  43. I just finished your puppy dog hat. I had tried the owl and it was so cute I had to try this one. I think it's not too bad for first animal hats. My kids love them. Thanks for putting them on here. I enjoy them.

  44. I have a baby shower to attend in five days and wanted a "little something else" to go with the main present. As we are all waiting until the birth day to find out girl or boy, this hat will make a perfect gift. You are so creative. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Question... At the end of the hat pattern it says to chain 2 and then at the beginning of the ear flap says to chain 1... it left a pretty good sized hole? Should I have skipped chaining 2 if I was making the earflap? Thank you so much the pattern has come along great! :)

  46. Thank you soooo much for this pattern...not to mention the pictures! I have just finished the hat part and am going to start the ears and eyes!

  47. Thank you for the pattern; I just finished a newborn pink puppy and it turned out very cute. I added a bow to the left ear and used Loops & Threads country Loom in a darker pink for the heart eye, nose, and inner ear, also used it for the braids. This yarn gave the hat some dimmension. Thank you again for the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Thank you for all your wonderful patterns. I have made the owl hat several times in all the sizes. This is my first time making the puppy dog pattern and it turned out so cute!

  52. I just made one in a 0-3 month size, it's so cute! I did notice that you don't need as much length (the 1 yard requested) for the braids, but I just cut them down to size for the tiny hat. Thanks for such a fun pattern!

  58. This is a great pattern, thank you. I have a question on the ear flaps, thought I see you didn't answer another great question in the comments (about the ch2 at the end of the pattern) so I'll probably just figure it out.

    It says "Ch1 turn" only at the end of the decreasing rows, but not at the ones that are SC across.... don't I still need to turn at the end of each row?

    Thanks!

  59. I absolutely love these hats. Everyone is going to be getting one or two for Christmas, just might put one in their stockings too..and my kids are 24 & 22.. lol I'm heading to Michael's this weekend for more wool, once I start, I can't stop. I will post some pictures when I have a few done :-) :-) :-)

  60. This pattern is NOT FREE! I'm sorry, but when I gotta put up $8.99 FOR A GUEST PASS, then the pattern, at least as far as I am concerned, is not free at all! That makes this deceitful in my mind. What a horrid way to drive traffic to a 'site'. I will take a pass on it, thank you very much!

  62. Thanks so very much for sharing your patterns, also the tutorial for attaching the nose and eyes. I haven't found a tut for that. I made a sponge bob hat and I wasn't thinking that there was a front and back, and the eyes didn't look like I wanted them to.

    Thanks again Sarah

  81. Hi, I love your sight and find many adorable patterns that I love to create. I am an experienced crocheter, over 25 years; however I do have a problem getting the puppy hat to gauge. I have made several times with different hooks and yarn. Has anyone else had this problem? They always come out to big! I hate when things like this beat me...lol! Any suggestions?
    I have used a pattern called "the easy easy beanie" with no issues. I guess I can use that to make the hats, but like I said it's have this beat me :)
