Cat Ear Beanie Crochet Pattern

crocheted using 'Alara' Yarn

Do you love the look of the ‘Cat Ear’ Beanie? Below you will find my free pattern and the link to the printable pdf which has some extra tips.

If you would like to make a different size, simply make your starting chain to fit around your head, with a multiple of 2. Add or subtract any number of rows depending on your preferences.

I have made this pattern specifically for an 8ply cotton blend yarn so it will need to be adjusted if you use an acrylic or 100% cotton yarn. As a guide, an all acrylic yarn will have more stretch and an all cotton yarn will have less.
