A while back I posted a picture of an "Angry Birds" hat that I made for my son L. He loves it and several people have requested the pattern so I decided to go ahead and write it down. I'm sure that it isn't without issues. Again, I'm new at writing down my crazy, spur of the moment, "I can make that!" moments! If you have problems, please message me and let me know so that I can correct the pattern. As always, thanks for visiting my blog, and Happy Hooking!!
Angry Birds Hat
Size I hook and a yarn needle
Small amount of stuffing
*PSM – Place Stitch Marker* (I recommend moving a stitch marker up as you go, you can use an actual stitch marker or a safety pin or a small length of yarn. )
Basic HDC Beanie with 4 rows of White, 7 rows of Red and then basic decrease and top closure. The beanie can be made any size, so alter it to fit anyone you like! If you have trouble, just message me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can alter it together! The Angry Bird’s face will be great no matter the hat size!
