022
I shared this adorable bunny hat pattern last year.
I would like to share it again so you have time to make one
 before Easter arrives next month!

This pattern is for sizes:
Newborn: 16 inch & Toddler: 18 inch
I used a size F hook.
Use larger hook for a larger hat
Use your favorite hat pattern....
Below is mine because this hat can easily be made in a couple of hours
I really like to use cotton yarn
Lily Sugar'n Cream Yarn, White
It holds up and washes well
Round 1 Make a Magic Circle or Ch 3 12 dc in 3rd chain from hook. Join with slip stitch in top of first dc [12 dc]
Round 2 Ch 2, 2 dc in each dc around. Join with slip stitch in top of first dc. [24 dc]
Round 3 Ch 2, *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st. Repeat from * around. Join with slip stitch in top of first dc. [36 dc]
Round 4 Ch 2, *dc in next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st. Repeat from * around. Join with slip stitch in top of first dc. [48 dc]
For 16 inch hat, skip to Round 7.
Round 5 Ch 2, *dc in 7 dc, 2 dc in next dc. Repeat from * around. Join with slip stitch in top of first dc. [54 dc]
Round 6 Ch 2, dc in each dc around. Join with slip stitch in top of first dc [54 dc]
Round 7-12 Ch 2, dc in each dc around. Join with slip stitch in top of first dc.
You can add another color in rounds 9 and 11 as shown in picture.
Round 13 you can do a sc in each stitch around
OR
Round 13 Ch 3, dc around the front side of a post then dc around the back side of a post all the way around. Fasten off

Make 2 outer ears using white.
Row 1 Ch 35 or more if you want longer ears
Row 2 Sc in 2nd ch from hook, (sc in next ch, hdc in next 4 ch, dc in next 4 ch, triple crochet in next 15 ch, dc in next 4 ch, hdc in next 4 ch, sc in next 2 ch)
