We love cats. I mean, c’mon, we work with yarn! We decided to give a swing to create the ultra popular cat ear beanie, and we were surprised to find how easy it was! If you’re looking to crochet a super cute hat, this might just be the cat’s meow!
- 1 Skein of Triple Twist DK Weight Yarn
- 5.00 mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle
- Tape measure
- Stitch markers (optional)
Hats are typically made with a 21 inch circumference - if you have a larger head measurement, you will need a larger foundation chain and an extra skein of yarn!
CO and using the foundation double crochet, creating 56 double crochets in total - or however many dcs you need to make a chain that is 21” long
Join both sides of the fdc.
Row 1: Ch 2 and dc in each st in the row. You can place a stitch marker at the last dc to keep track of where you are in the round, if you don’t want to keep counting after every stitch!
Row 2-16: Repeat row 1
Row 17: Using the remaining yarn, sew the top of the beanie shut with your yarn needle. Your finished beanie will look like a cute little square.
NOTE: The cat ear size will vary depending on the size and shape of your head. The cat ears will form along the sewn edge as the sewn edge will mold to the top of your or the recipient's head.
