As you all know by now, I LOVE Halloween! A couple weeks ago, I shared my Cheshire Cat Costume with you guys. You all seemed to really like it so I thought it would be fun to share another Cheshire Cat inspired costume using the colors from the newer version of Alice In Wonderland. Enjoy!

Hat

Follow pattern for my other Cheshire Cat hat but make these changes:

- Use Turqua & Gray yarn and switch colors every three rounds

- Do not make the ear flaps. Instead, for your last round you will ch 1, sc in each st, join and fasten off.

- The ears are the same but I did not use the slicker brush to make the ears on the newer version look furry.

- Attach a piece of each color yarn to the tip of the ear. Tie and trim the yarn (see picture below).

And you're done! Let me know how you like my pattern. Please tag me on Instagram lovable_loops if you make your own!
