Pit Bull hat

Pickles is my other foster dog, she too is up for adoption through Bully Buddies.

I’m taking her and Boo to an adoption event on the weekend. I figured since Boo will wear her hats, Pickles shouldn’t be left out so I made her a simple earflap hat with a big pom pom on the top. It matches her hot pink Thundershirt that she’ll be wearing also. Credit for the pom pom actually goes to my husband, he did most of it, I just trimmed it and sewed it on.

Irresist-a-bull! I just adore her! I wish I was in a position where I could adopt her myself.

Sorry, no pattern. I was in a rush to get it done and didn’t take any notes.

I made another dishcloth yesterday – SHARK! I used up the last little bit of cotton scraps I had. Yay! It feels good to stay on top of my scraps plus one can never have enough dishcloths.

Pattern for the shark dishcloth is again by Mamafri/CreaWelten on Ravelry


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


Worsted weight yarn (horn color)
4 mm crochet hook
Darning needle
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.
