Before you read the pattern please note that although I am not new to crocheting I am absolutely new to pattern writing. If you have any questions please let me know and I'll do the best I can to help out!
Adaptions (Size shown is 3-6 months)
I used an I hook
At the beginning of the pattern I wanted a pointier tip.
-3 hdc, sl st
-Ch1, 2 hdc in each st, sl st
-Ch 1, 2 hdc, hdc, 2 hdc, 1 hdc, 2 hdc, 2 hdc (Yes you read that right, you need your total to be 10)From here you pick up where the pattern starts for round 1 and work until the last row of hdc.
I skip the sc rows and instead add two rows of fphdc and bphdc and alternate around.
Add two Xs to each side and viola! Link Hat! If you want the ears that pattern is free...I wrote it ;) It can be found here.
