Crochet Cat-Ear Hat Pattern

If you're new to crochet (or just like crocheting at all for that matter) and you're looking for something new, this hat is a great project.

It can be adapted to different yarns, hooks, and head sizes, all the while looking super cute.

And with basic stitches and absolutely no cinch circles, it's easier than most beginner hats I've seen!

CROCHET CAT-EAR HAT PATTERN
SUPPLIES:
  • Yarn (any kind, machine washable preferable)
  • Hook that works with yarn
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors

ABBREVIATIONS:
  • ch: chain
  • sl st: slip stitch
  • st: stitch
  • sc: single crochet

PATTERN:
ch until length fits well around head, sl st to first st to join
Odd rows: ch 1, *sc, ch1*, repeat from *to* around, sl st to join
Even rows: ch 2, *sc, ch1*, repeat from *to* around, sc in last st, sl st join
Repeat odd and even rows until the tube (pinched together at top) fits head
With yarn needle, sew the top together
Sew an angle on the top corners, where the ears would go, if you want (see note below)
Weave in and trim any ends

Note: on the blog Persia Lou, she sewed the top corners (where the ears naturally form). I sewed the corner, too, but I didn't pull it so tight. You can try one of these methods, or not sew it at all. It's up to you!
