I had a request from a friend to make a hat for her teen age daughter who just got a hamster. I couldn’t find any patterns online for what I was looking for - so I made this one.

I am so happy with how it turned out. And the recipient loved the hat!

I have written this in an adjult size. However, you can make it child sized just by going down one hook size. You could also make it a large adult size by going up one hook size.

I hope you enjoy it!

I don’t have the time right this minute to make a new PDF file - so until I do, please see the below correction for Row 8 of pattern
