Pattern Description:

This is pattern set oen of two animal earflap zoos. Theses animals are all the ones you'd find at your local zoo. A Walrus, Lion, Kolar bear, Monkey and Penguin.

This is a beginner level 5-in-1 crocheted animal hat pattern. Why go to the zoo, when you can crochet these yourself in a few hours?

Pattern is sized toddler to teen. This is a great stash buster project. The hat requires ~165 yards or 75gms of the main color (worsted weight), all the facial features are done with stash yarn
