Called Rat Hat because I couldn’t resist the sound of it, but really it is a Rodent Hat being a pattern for a mouse, or a dormouse, or a rat, or a – well, anything with big round ears…
Pattern has 3 sizes for ears and 2 for noses.
There’s a pattern for a bonus bow as well.
This is an easy knit for beginners.

Have fun with it – I hope your little rug-rats like it!
