Adorable Animal Crochet Hats for Kids: Trend Alert!

Now that the holidays are over, the kids are headed back to school. In addition to backpacks, they all seem to be wearing something in common: crocheted animal hats! It’s certainly a hot new trend for the little ones, as evidenced right here on Craftsy where many of the crafters in our community have been busy crocheting animal hats for children of all ages. We’ve highlighted some of these wonderful crochet kids hats and crochet baby hats below—all of which pay homage to some very cute animals.

Am very interested in making some of these adorable hats for my grandchildren and their friends. They look adorable and easy, however I do need some directions/instructions. Thank you in advance.
