Do you have a dog? Do you want to make it look silly? Then this is the hat for you! Crazy colors and a simple design make this an easy but fun project, and your dog will sure look dapper while frantically trying to take this off its head!

For this project, you will need two different colors of worsted-weight yarn. It’s not a very large project, so you won’t need much yarn. I just used some leftovers I had in my stash from previous projects!

This hat was designed specifically for my dog Jameson, a border collie. His head and neck are both about 16” around, and I knit with a very loose gauge. If your dog is bigger, you will probably have to add some more stitches when you cast on (in multiples of 4 so it works with the ribbing!), or use a larger needle. If your dog is smaller, knit this pattern tightly, use a smaller needle, or subtract some stitches when casting on!
