~ Ears ~

Round 1~ Taking your 5.00mm crochet hook and black yarn, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 2 Chains. Crochet 7 Half Double Crochets into the first chain you made. Slip Stitch into the top of chain 2. You should have 8 half double crochets now.

Repeat ear pattern once more to make a pair.
Then, taking your tapestry needle, sew both ears to the top of your hat, making sure they’re evenly spaced out.
Fasten off, and weave in ends.
~ Bow ~

Taking your 5.00mm crochet hook and pink yarn, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 40 Chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2, skip 2 chains from your hook, then crochet Half Double Crochets all across into every chain.
Row 2 – 8 ~ Chain 2, half double crochet into every stitch across.
When you’ve completed all the rows, connect the two ends of the bow band together to create a circle and Slip Stitch them together.
Once you’ve slip stitched the ends together, flip the slip stitched part to the inside and fasten your yarn off. You don’t want to trim your yarn less than 55″/140cm because you need a long enough tail to wrap around your bow.
Start of by slowly yet tightly wrapping the yarn around the center of the bow. You need to wrap it around the bow at least 15 times. When you’ve finished wrapping, knot it to the back of the bow.
Then taking your wool/tapestry needle, work the bow onto the top of your hat, right in the middle.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.
Taking your six white buttons, sew them onto your bow with your snow white yarn and tapestry needle, making sure to space them out evenly. This creates the white polka dots.
~ Braided Tassels ~

Taking your black, white and pink yarn, cut 9 strands of yarn (3 of every colour), each 30 inches long. Then make a simple knot into the bottom of the left ear-flap. Make a loose braid as short or long as you like, (Mine was 8 inches) then tie a knot at the end, and cut of any excess yarn.
Repeat for the right ear-flap.
