Is it a sheep? Is it a hedgehog? Well the choice is completely yours!

This is a quick, fun hat to knit, and with a wide range of sizes you could make one for every member of your family. Sheep hog is knit from the bottom up, in the round, in one piece except for the optional ears which are knitted separately and then sewn on afterwards.

If you are making this hat for a baby or very young child I recommend embroidering on the eyes rather than using beads or buttons.

This is a written pattern with no charts.
