Penguin Hat

Penguin Hat

SEPTEMBER 22, 2018

NoteI recently decided to revisit my basic beanie/hat pattern.  After designing my Candy Corn and Scarecrow hats using an I 5.5mm crochet hook, I found that I really liked the size and closeness of the stitches. I will be transitioning all of my hat and wig patterns over to my new Basic Beanie pattern beginning on Monday, October 22nd. 

I started this cute little guy while we were at the beach this summer but when we got home, the craziness of the beginning of the school year took over and then I got distracted with fall and Halloween things.  I'm happy to finally be able to share this penguin hat pattern with you. Enjoy!

You might notice that my hat pattern has changed a bit. After I designed my Scarecrow Hat and Candy Corn Hat using an I 5.5mm crochet hook, I decided to revisit my measurement charts and I redesigned my basic beanie pattern. Look for a post coming soon that goes into more detail.
