A Koala Bear


I love making novelty hats.  When I see children in them, it makes me smile.

Inspired by all my Australian customers, I designed a Koala Bear Hat.  The pattern uses worsted weight yarn and an I9/5.50mm hook.  It works up very quickly using single crochet.  The design is in the details!

The pattern has four sizes included: 0 to 6 months, 6-12 months, Toddler and Child.



This hat pattern can be purchased for $4 and delivered via email.  Instant gratification!

Crocheting tip: For inexpensive row markers  use safety pins. I have alot of uses for them. They can mark the begining of rounds when you are working a continuous circle and it can be used to mark different rows that need to be remembered (for example if you are matching fronts and backs, pin the same row on each piece to line it up). If you have trouble keeping track of the first stitch on your rows, put a safety pin on it. It will keep yo,u from accidentally working too many stitches or not enough. Pin one to the front of your work, so you can remember what is the front.

What better way to stay warm in the winter then with a bearded hat?


This is a simple design that uses single and double crochet and decreases and increases for the shaping.  It is great for keeping your face warm just like a boring ski hat does.  My daughters boyfriend wanted one so badly, that I had to put pen to paper.  I wanted to come up with a simple one because that is the way I like my patterns to be.  If you read the pattern carefully, ask questions, even a beginner crocheter can make this.
