4. Quick and Simple Cat Hat

One trick to getting the hat to stay on your cat’s head is using smart shaping that sits around the ears. Another trick: incorporate a tie that attached around the head/ neck. This hat pattern uses both of those tricks to create a cute hat that your cat won’t want to (or, wont’ be able to) take off.
