This pattern is for a worsted weight version of my popular Triceratops Bomber Hat (bulky weight) that was featured in Inc. Magazine. It is perfect for everyday, but also makes a great photo prop or costume. I designed this hat to be seamless so it looks great from all angles. The earflaps are designed to look like legs so that the whole hat looks like a triceratops. This pattern is made with worsted weight yarn and contains six sizes.
