Row1:Hold the hat with the top of the hat pointing to the ground. On the right side of one of your ear holes insert your hook into one of the stitches and pull up loop, sc x 9 (9) (See photo below)
Row2:Turn, ch1, invdec, sc x 5, invdec (7)

Repeat Row1-6 for second Ear Flap, but DO NOT fo. Now sc around the entire piece x 60, fo (60)

Cut strips of yarn 22 inches long. Fold in half (you will pull the yarn through at this fold). Insert hook into the middle st on one of your ear flaps. Pull through yarn.
Now pull yarn ends through the loop.
And tighten. Now braid your tassel, or leave the strands loose.
I gave the hats a frilly trim. To do this insert your hook into one of the posts on the last round of your hat.
Pull up loop, ch3 and sc in same st. Now sc, ch3, sc in every post around the entire hat, fo. Your trim should look like this.
Now weave in all your ends, and your done! Now put it on your little one!
Here are my little girls wearing there hats...

      No, I'm sorry this hat was made for a chihuahua so a smaller breed dog.

  4. Could you put up a pattern for a hat with a flatter top??

    1. Hello,

      Sorry, I just have the one dog hat pattern right now.

  5. Please give measurements for finished hat.

    1. Hello,

      From the top of the hat to the brim is just over 5.5 inches :)

    2. Thank you very much!
      Merry Christmas!

  6. Do you make the top n the round with a stitch marker? This is so Chihuahua will LOVE it

    1. Hello Tina,

      Yes, the top of the hat is worked in the round with a stitch marker. And I hope you enjoy the pattern :)

  7. I made a red hat and modified it without the earflaps and did the last couple of rows in a fluffy white yarn and now Spike has a Santa hat!
    I am now working on a sombrero.

  12. How do you add the little bobbles of color? I finished the hat, but that part was missing. Thank you and I love it! Your directions were so clear even for a beginner like me!
