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!

  10. 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

  11. 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!!!

  14. I don't know how to crochet, but I know a lady who does. I found a diaper cover pattern as well and printed them out and took them to her. Although, I didn't use white and pink yarn, I picked out gray and blue for my baby boy and it turned out super cute! I wish I could share a picture of it. Thanks for sharing!

  16. This pattern is precious. I'd like to make it to give with a blanket I just finished that has filigree bunnies throughout the blanket. I didn't see any mention on what weight yarn you used to get the sizing correct in this project. With a "G" hook it seems it could have been sport,DK or Worsted. Please let me know when you get this so I can get started. Thanks, so much.
