This is a really simple pattern - the whole hat is only eight pieces!
LET THE WILD RUMPUS START!
The pattern is on STEP 2 - scroll down to the bottom of the step and click on the PDF there! If you can't get it that way, I've uploaded it docs.google.com/fileview. :D
p.s. - Please ask if you have any questions!
p.p.s - Someone on craftster made their own version with fuzzy fabric!
Just scroll down a bit and you should see it!
Step 1: What you'll need...
- white polar fleece - 1/2 yd, just in case!
- 24 gauge black plastic coated wire or long black twist-ties for the whiskers
- 24 gauge white plastic coated wire to keep the ears upright
- white thread and a needle and/or a sewing machine
- the pattern, which is attached as a PDF on the next step!
Soak the string in slightly-diluted PVA glue and leave it to dry (If you dry it draped over a pile of scrap plastic bags, it will set in a twiddly shape).
Step 2: Pattern information.
This pattern is tailored to my head size, which is:
21 1/2 inches around, measured right above the ears,
and 13 1/2 inches from center line of head to shoulder.
...but you can easily alter it to fit you if you have a larger/smaller head. I'll go over this in the next two steps. :)
The pattern will print out on five pages. Four of the pages will be the hat, one will be the ear pattern and the test square! The test square should be 4x4 inches when the pattern is printed correctly!
I apologize for the wonky, terrible scans. Both scanners were givin' me lip. I couldn't get them to do anything properly. Some lines will be a little crooked, but that's okay!
