Buffalo Hat

Boo is also known as the “Tiny yellow buffalo” as she’s very much built like one – Giant hairy shoulders, wee tiny waist.

Needless to say, I HAD to make her a buffalo hat. HAD TO.

She’s thrilled with it and so am I 😀

Main part is the same like in the Queen Hat, I just added horns instead of a crown and braids.

Horn Pattern

Material:

Worsted weight yarn (horn color)
4 mm crochet hook
Darning needle
Scissors
Material to stuff the horns (I used the extra yarn I cut off when I made the braids for her Queen hat, nothing gets wasted here :D)

Make 2:

  1. Magic loop, 4 sc into loop (4 st)
  2. 2 sc in each st (8 st)
  3. 1 sc in each st (8 st)
  4. 1 sc in each st (8 st)
  5. 2 sc in first two st, 1 sc in rest of st (10 st)
  6. 1 sc in each st (10 st)
  7. Repeat rows 5 and 6 until you’ve reached the desired length, end off but leave a strand long enough to sew onto hat… weave in beginning end, stuff horn, sew to main part, weave in end.

Again, if you’re going to crochet a hat, please consider making a donation to Boo’s rescue (they spent well over $2500 for her care thus far): Bully Buddies. Thank you!

I have visions of Easter bunny hat, unicorn hat and pig hat (she’s also known as “Trufflepig”) but that will have to wait as I’m about 2/3 done now with my Manta Hueco Zig Zag blanket and hope to finish it within the next two weeks.
