I am bringing you something fun and cute – crochet cat hat patterns! Lately, I have been making some for my cats and can not wait to share them with you.

I know the saying goes a dog is man’s best friend. However, I think this definitely applies to cats too! In fact, any pet that is close to your heart can be your best friend.

When it comes to cats, they show so much love! I have been thinking of some cute gifts for them. And this is where the idea has come from – crochet cat hat patterns!

These patterns are quick to make so you get instant satisfaction from completing a project. And the options of personalizing a hat for your furry friend are endless. All you need to do is change colors and add a few different elements and you will have a crochet cat hat for any occasion.

Although these patterns are specifically aimed at cats, there is no reason why you could not adjust the patterns to fit your dog. The patterns I designed are completely adjustable and can be made larger for dogs, ponies, or horses! The possibilities are endless.

As every cat is different in size, the best thing you can do is use a pattern that can be easily adjusted. The easiest patterns to adjust would be patterns that are worked top-down.

These start at the top of the crochet cat hat and incorporate increases into each round. You will follow this pattern until the hat is as wide as the space between your cat’s ears. Once you have reached the width you can stop increasing and add a bit of height if you wish to. This depends on the style of hat you are making.

The alternative is to make holes on your crochet cat hat for the ears to poke through. You would follow the pattern until the desired width of the gap between the ears. Then you would make another round where you chain stitches and miss stitches to create two openings. These then become the ear holes.

Another important thing to think about is the ties. These are essential if you want your cat to wear the crochet hat for more than five seconds. You want to place the ties on either side of the hat and tie it under the chin. Of course not too tight so the cat is still comfortable.
