Crochet Cow Hat Pattern


I love this little moo cow crochet hat :) I think it is actually my new favorite! I made this one very gender neutral but I plan on making another one with a pink snout, ears, and a little crochet bow for my baby girl. You could really customize this cow hat just by using different colors of yarn.


Materials:
- Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn in white, black, and beige.
- Size H Crochet Hook
- Tapestry needle
- Stitch marker
- Small amount of poly-fil or extra yarn scraps to fill the horns.
- 1 black button and 1 white button

SC = Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
SC decrease = Single Crochet decrease

  12. When you join to the DC do you start the next row in the same stitch that you join in?

    ReplyDelete
  13. ohhh it is fantastic, I like it. Thank you

  14. Thank you so much for the cute hat pattern! I've made it all the way to the snout and I am having difficulty getting it to work with the stitch counts as written. Is there supposed to be 2 sc in both ends of the rows? Thanks so much! :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Summerysmile, i think the pattern reads 2sc, 1 in next and then repeat to end. if you just did 2sc in the first and last stitch you would only have 8 sc. so row two would be 2sc in first stitch and then 1sc in next two, repeat that pattern to end of row. I hope I explained it right. I was having the same thought you did.

  19. Can anyone help me? Do I need to ch2 after magic ring before i begin 11 DC in magic ring? :( I'm new to Crochet and i found out that some pattern has ch2 after magic ring, and some don't...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ivy; After closing the ring with a slip stitch you will chain 2, same with every round. Unless the pattern states that the ch2 counts as a stitch, I don't count it in my round.

    And I LOVED this pattern. Super easy to follow and my hat came out cute as heck!
