Newborn Animal Hat

I have had a lot of requests for these little hats for a few photographers in my area. Decided to write up the pattern as I am making yet another one. Hope you enjoy it.

For one I am using a strand of Caron Simply Soft and a strand of Lion Brand Fun Fur held together as one. For the darker had just one strand of Caron and then for the ears I used the fun furn held together with the Caron and a row of sc added around the bottom of hat. Done with a K hook
