Hair Main: Using black fun fur yarn, sl st, then single crochet around the top of the head a few times between the ears until you have a desired main look for your zebra. Use the fun fur yarn down the back of the hat too. Note: Seems the double crochet pattern works best when making color changes.

    I have made 2 attempts so far to make this hat but I think I am missing something. It keeps turning out flat, then hat shaped :-(. Can you provide any suggestions of what I may be doing wrong?
