Monsters Inc. Baby Hat

By:

2 Comments

The only thing better than regular crochet baby hat patterns is Mike Wazowski-themed hat patterns. This Monsters Inc. Baby Hat is so easy to make and will quickly become a family favorite. Kids will love channeling their favorite characters everywhere they go. This hat is light enough to wear in the spring and fall but heavy enough to keep on in the winter. This is a great baby shower or birthday gift, so take one to your next party.

P.S. I have not heard of 8 ply yarn. Do you mean 2 strands of 4-ply used together, or am I really behind the times??? Please advise. Thanks. MN from MN

I LOVE the hat, but would like to make it for a toddler and am not good enough to make the increases without directions. Is there any chance you would be able to make a new pattern OR make increases and add them in parantheses in the original pattern? Would appreciate it. IF YOU DO, it would be GREAT if FaveCrafts would list it again. Thanks. MN from MN

I would love this pattern if available in bigger sizes. Any additional instructions to make it for a 3 year old? Thanks!
