My crocheted puppy dog hat pattern has been updated.
Changes Made to the Pattern:
- The hook size
- The eye patch has an additional row
- The addition of tassels
- The little black shape on the nose & a tad bit of embroidery
- AND…. the pattern now includes both NB and 0-3 Months
I crocheted the original hat and wrote the pattern about 3 months after crocheting my very first hat and learning to read my first pattern. For so long when I looked at the hat or the pattern I was so proud of myself and couldn’t believe that I was able to figure out how to do that. Back then I had never heard of Etsy or Ravelry and the only place I had ever found patterns online was the Lion Brand website.
All in all the pattern didn’t change much, the hat is still the same number of stitches, the nose is the same pattern and so are the ears. And yes, in that time my skill level has improved but really I think this is more about the yarn than anything. With experience you do gain skill but you also (at least I have) gotten a better feel what yarn is needed for different applications.
