Skills

This is an intermediate crochet skill level pattern that requires a general understanding of crochet in the round, increases, and decreases. You will also need a basic knowledge of sewing or embroidery to put the hat pieces together.

Care

Since the red yarn can bleed into the white eyes when wet, it’s best to surface wash this hat or hand-wash while keeping the eyes dry. Lay flat to dry.
