Someone from a different crochet website was looking for a dinosaur hat, so I was inspired to make this crochet dinosaur hat pattern! I can’t wait until my daughter is big enough to wear it, she will look so cute in it. I love how the spikes and the eyes turned out on this dinosaur hat pattern. Crocheting this hat was a lot of fun to create!

Then with blue yarn, I did a dc in each stitch around the edge. sl st, fasten off, or you can add ear flaps.

Ear flaps: If you would like to add ear flaps

Make 2

G hook, green yarn

1st ear flap, you can slip stitch onto the side of the hat with your green yarn, begin the dc stitches, (like to have the seam in the back of the hat, so I do the ear flap on the side of the hat)

2nd flap, fold hat in half and sl st in dc directly across from the last dc from the other ear flap. follow directions below for both ear flaps.

Row 1. ch 2, dc in the next 11 dc stitches, turn. -11 sts
Row 2. ch 2, dc2tog. dc in the next 6 stitches. dc2tog. dc in the last st. turn. -9
Row 3. ch 2, dc2tog, dc in the next 4 stitches. dc2tog. dc in the last st., turn. -7
Row 4. ch 2, dc2tog, dc in the next 2 stitches. dc2tog. dc in the last st. turn. -5
Row 5. ch 2, dc2tog twice, dc in last st. cut yarn and pull through -3

The braid from the center of the ear flap at the bottom, I hook, use blue yarn, with a sl st in the center of the bottom of the ear flap and chain 30, and sl st it off and cut yarn.
Eyes: Make 2, H hook,

black, white and green yarn,

start with black yarn

Rnd 1. ch 2, work 5 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook, sl st. (black will be the pupil)
Now switch to white yarn, sl st with white yarn
Rnd 2. work 2sc in each stitch around, sl st. -10sc
Rnd 3. work 1 sc in the next stitch, 2sc in the next stitch, *repeat around, sl st. -15sc
Rnd 4. sc in each stitch around. sl st. -15sc
The lid of the eyes,
Make 2, H hook, green yarn,
Row 1. ch 12, turn
Row 2. sc in the 2nd chain from the hook and each stitch across, turn -11 sc
Row 3.  2sctog decrease in first two sc, sc in each stitch across, 2sctog in the last two sc, turn -9sc
Row 4. 2sctog decrease, sc in each stitch across, 2sctog in the last two sc, turn -7sc
Row 5. 2sctog decrease, sc in each stitch across, 2sctog in the last two sc, turn -5sc
Row 6. sc in each stitch across, -5sc, fasten off.
With green yarn, sow the longest part (chain 11) of the lid to the white eye, half way above the pupil, (as seen in the picture) Do this for both eyes.
I slightly stuff the eyes with yarn, to give it a 3-d look . Sow the eyes half way in the center of the hat, about 2-3 inches apart
Horns: H and I hook, blue yarn,
Make 2 of each of small and medium horns,
Pattern for Small horns
Rnd 1. ch 2, work 3sc in the 2nd chain from the hook, sl st. -3sc
Rnd 2. 2sc in each stitch around, -6sc
Rnd 3. work 1 sc in the next stitch, 2sc in the next stitch, *repeat around, sl st -9sc
Rnd 4. work 1 sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sc in the next stitch, *repeat around, sl st -12sc
 
 

Rnds 5-6. sc in each stitch around twice -12sc, fasten off.

Medium horns, Make 2.
Blue yarn, I hook
Rnd 1. ch 2, work 5sc in the 2nd chain from the hook, sl st. -5sc
Rnd 2. 2sc in each stitch around, -10sc
Rnd 3. work 1 sc in the next stitch, 2sc in the next stitch, *repeat around, sl st -15sc
Rnd 4. work 1 sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sc in the next stitch, *repeat around, sl st -20sc
Rnds 5-7. sc in each stitch around three times -20, fasten off

You can put the horns on the way you like, I sewed the horns on by sewing the small on in the center middle of the forehead of the dinosaur and then sewed a medium one on about 1.5 inches apart down the back of the head in a straight line, then a small one, then sewed a medium one on for the last one. So I alternated small to big.
