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