Crocheted Adult Flamingo Hat - Free Crochet Pattern

 I decided to offer this pattern for free on the blog instead of selling it in my ravelry store or on etsy

I've made 4 in total and they are pretty fun
If you decide to work this up for yourself or a loved one, I'm sure they'll have a great time with it too ;).

***1.3.14 Update***
I received and email today that AllFreeCrochet.com is now offering this pattern on their site!

Welcome All Free Crochet members! 

As AllFreeCrochet mentioned this hat would be neat as a penguin hat too! :) Using a different variety of colors of course ;). If I make one for a friend or one is requested I will share it with you! :) Happy Crafting!

Ear Flap Braids:

Cut 12 lengths of 36 inch yarn. Follow pictures here to add thread. You can leave them hanging free or braid them to your liking! 



 Since there are now 12 ends to work with on either side of the ear flap you can braid them holding 4 lengths of thread knot the ends with an overhand knot

EYES: Make 2

Using Black Yarn

ROUND 1: Chain 4 into a magic circle to count as the first  Trc. Work 15 more Trc in the ring;  join with a Slst to the top of beginning of chain 4. (16 trc). Fasten off – leave a length of 24 inch thread for sewing these onto the hat.

Sew onto hat between rows 10 – 13 about  9 – 10 stiches apart.
