Goat Hat

Goat Hat

AUGUST 18, 2018

When my youngest, Mark, was in preschool, I accompanied his class on a field trip to a farm that happened to have baby goats. When I saw the furry little animals hopping around, I instantly fell in love! Not only did they look adorable, but their playful behavior was so incredibly cute!

My husband, Mark, knows how much I love baby goats. While he was out running errands with our two youngest kids, he sent me a picture of this Gabby Goat Beanie Boo thinking it might give me some inspiration for a new crochet animal hat. Well, it sure did! I really enjoyed designing this hat for you guys. I hope you find it as cute as my family does!

Sew the face stripe onto the hat. Make sure it is centered. The sc border should slightly overlap that first round of white you made when you were crocheting the hat. See pictures for reference.

Use a tapestry needle and white yarn to add the "eye sparkle" to the corners of the eyes. I simply threaded the yarn back and forth 2-3 times.

Attach the eyes to the hat to the sides of the face stripe and just above the first round of white yarn. Make sure your eye sparkle is in the correct position. See pictures for reference.

Sew the inner ear onto the outer ear using brown yarn (so you don't see it from the back) through the front loops of the sc border of the outer ear.

Attach ears to sides of hat. See pictures for spacing.

Crochet hook: H 5 mm

  1. First children’s hat that I really like. As a newbie to this crochet lark and a 77 year old male, I am going to have a go at this for my 2 Great Granddaughters aged 2 and 4.
    Just joined my village crochet group. Feel a bit out place among all these women but I think they like the different conversation I bring to them. A great bunch and by the way I am polite.
    Thanks for the pattern.

  5. I am trying to download and copy your Seal, Goat, Moose and Deer hat patterns. I live in Alaska and have begun making Alaskan animal hats for children. I can’t seem to find any way to download them but don’t see anywhere that you charge for them. What do I need to do?

    Hi Lori,

    Wow! That’s so cool that you live in Alaska! My husband has a cousin that lives there. He loves it. All of my patterns are free but unfortunately, at this time, I don’t have them available in a downloadable format. An option would be to copy and paste into a word document and print from there, or, maybe you could print directly from your browser? I’m sorry that I’m not more help with this.
