Pattern

With H hook (G if you crochet loosely)

Rnd 1: Ch 3, 7 hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Join with sl st. (8 hdc the first 2 chains count as the first hdc of the rnd)

Rnd 2: Ch 2, hdc in same st. 2 hdc in each st around, join. (16 hdc)

Rnd 3: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next st. (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st) around, join. (24 hdc)

Rnd 5: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 3 sts. (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 3 sts) around, join. (40 hdc)

Rnd 6: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 4 sts. (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 4 sts) around, join. (48 hdc)

Rnd 7: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 5 sts. (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 5 sts) around, join. (56 hdc)

Rnd 8: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 6 sts. (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 6 sts) around, join. (64 hdc)

Rnd 9- 17: Ch 2, hdc in next st. Hdc in each st around, join. (64 hdc)


First earflap:

Row 1: Sc in same st as join. Sc in next 12 sts. Ch 1, turn. (13 sc)

Row 2: Sc2tog over the first 2 sts, sc in each st across. Ch 1, turn. (12 sc)

Row 3: Repeat row 2, until 1 st remains. Finish off.

Second earflap

Row 1: Skip next 21 sts and attach with sl st in the next st. Ch 1 and sc in the same st and in next 12 sts, Ch 1, turn (13 sc)

Row 2: Sc2tog over the first 2 sts. Sc across. (12 sc)

Row 3: Repeat row 2 until 1 st remains. Ch 1 and do not finish off.

Work a round of sc around the hat, placing 3 sc in the point of each earflap. Finish off
Leaving approximately 12 inches of tail, attach Red to one of the earflaps. Work a round of sc around the edge, leaving a finishing tail long enough to use in the braid. I start and finish with long tails so I can use them to braid with and won’t have to weave them into the hat.

You'll notice that the earflaps are not totally centered. The front of the hat is the side where there is more space between earflaps. Make sure you take note of this when you begin sewing your eyes, nose, ears, and bow onto the hat.

Eyes (G hook)

With Black, Ch 5
2 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc in the next 2 chs. 3 sc in last ch. Do not turn. You will work in the opposite side of the ch. Sc in next 2 chs. Sc in last ch which is the first ch. (10 sc)
Don’t fret too much over the eyes and nose…They do not have to be exact, just small ovals.

Nose (G hook)

With Yellow Ch 4

2 Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next st, 3 sc in last ch. Do not turn. Work in the opposite side of the ch. Sc in next ch, sc in next st. Sc in same chain as the first sc worked. You’ll end with a small oval shape. (8 sc)


Ears (G hook) and holding 2 strands of yarn together
With White Ch 3
Row 1: 7 Hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Ch 1, turn (7 hdc)

Row 2: 2 sc in first st. sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, 2 dc in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st, 2 sc in last st. (12 sts) Finish off.


Bow

With Red Ch 11

Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Hdc in each st across. Ch 2, turn. (10 hdc)

Rows 2- 10: Hdc in each st. Finish off

Take a long strand of Red and wrap around the middle of the bow to draw it in. Wrap several times. Tie the ends in the back of the bow. Using the yarn needle weave the ends into the bow to hide then use these same ends to sew onto the hat. Sew the middle of the bow and bottom of the bow onto the hat. I found that if you do not sew the bottom of the bow to the hat, it will curl up.


Whiskers

Use a yarn needle to embroider the whiskers. They will be straight if you work into the stitches and not in-between them.


Braids
I used only the red, but you can make them however you wish. I used 15 strips for each earflap.

Sew the eyes and nose onto the hat. Do not sew the eyes too close together. Mine may be a little too far apart. I used a picture to go by.
