Dinosaur Hat

My daughter loved her dinosaur hat so much, that I decided she should have a dinosaur hat to wear on the days that she doesn’t feel like wearing her scarf. She loved that idea so I got to work making one for her.

This pattern is pretty easy and works up quick. I used my easy hat pattern as the base of this hat. The spikes are made the same way as the spikes in my Dinosaur Hooded Scarf. I even used the yarn that I had leftover from making her scarf so the colors in these projects are the exact same.

Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing.  Sew the spikes to the top of the hat in a row going down the back. 

My daughter was so happy when I finished this hat for her. She loves her hooded scarf, but there are some days where she doesn’t want to deal with something that bulky. She loves having this hat as an alternative so she can show off her love of dinosaurs every day.
