Make 2 inner ears with color of your choice
Repeat Outer ears Rows 1-5
Stack ears together and connect with a sc around.
Use a yarn needle to sew on ears. I suggest that you try the hat on the child before attaching the ears so you can get a better idea where to put the ears.

And I have to end this post with a few more pictures of this little cutie in the hat.  Enjoy!

I just finished making this cute little bunny hat. It turned out great. The pattern is very easy, even for a novice like myself. I can't wait to try in on my grandbaby! Thanks for sharing!

Would this hat fit a 7 to 9 month baby? :) if not how should I adjust it?

MissDaisy said...

Love it. I made this hat today. I'm in love with the baby.
I think there is a mistake in the ears, when you wrote "hdc in next 5 ch" instead 4

I saw this on Pinterest and my fiance is called "Rabbit" (he's a baseball player--don't ask) and I would love this for our baby but I'm not gifted in this area. Would anyone be willing to make one of these for me to buy? If so, could you please email me (Alie) at alison.hrabe@gmail.com. Thank you!!!
