I love all the animal-themed children’s hats I see on the Web these days. They’re not only fun to make, I’m sure any kid will tell you that they’re also fun to wear.
I fell in love with the Piggy Hat crochet pattern at http://kandjdolls.blogspot.com/2011/10/free-piggy-hat-crochet-pattern.html and so I made one. But I did change it up a little by using plain pink worsted weight yarn, and edging it in a simple single crochet stitch instead of using the recommended crab stitch. I also added a pink ribbon to each ear to make it clear that she’s a little girl piggy!
I had so much fun making the piggy hat that I ended up making a bunch of different hats for the children of my nieces and nephews. I handed them out at the family picnic and you can see pictures below of everyone wearing their hats.
