We share a beautiful beret pattern for both adults and children. It will protect your head and ears from the cold in winter. Follow us for Amigurumi leopard beret pattern and more patterns.

This smart zebra hat in monochrome stripes with its matching fringed mane and twisted cords is great fun to wear. The detailed ears and nose with its embroidered nostrils make it especially cute.

2 x black ½[⅝]in (1.25[1.5]cm) diameter buttons

SIZES

To fi t: child, up to 20in (51cm) head circumference [adult, up to 22in (56cm) head circumference]

TENSION

13 sts and 14 rows to 4in (10cm) over double crochet on 6mm hook. Use larger or smaller hook if necessary to obtain correct tension.

METHOD

The stripes are produced by alternating yarns every two rows. The black part of the ears is worked in rounds of double crochet with the white inners worked separately in rows and stitched on. The nose is crocheted using a smaller hook to create a fi rmer fabric and then stuff ed to give it shape and fi nished with embroidered nostrils. A striped band worked in rows of double crochet with a fringe attached to one long edge forms the zebra’s mane, which is stitched to the top and down the back of the hat.

MAKING UP

Edging

With right side of work facing, using 5mm hook and B, rejoin yarn to the back of the hat by the second earfl ap and follow the edging pattern as for the leopard hat on page 23. Fasten off and slip stitch the top edge of the earfl ap facings to the inside of the main piece using yarn A.

Ears

Push a thin layer of stuffi ng into the ears, keeping the shape flat. With the long length of yarn left, sew the stitches from each side of the last round together to join, forming a straight edge. Sew the inner ear to the centre of the ear and aligning the lower edges. Bring each corner of the ear to the middle to shape and stitch together. Sew in place to each side of the head, stitching all around the lower edges to prevent them from fl opping over.

Nose

Stuff the nose lightly to pad it out, keeping a fl attened shape. Sew the stitches from each side of the last round together to form a straight edge. Stitch the nose in place on the front of the hat with the straight edge sitting just above the second row of edging stitches. Using yarn A and a blunt-ended darning needle, embroider the nostrils by working 2 straight stitches (see page 155) for each.

Eyes and mane

Place the small black buttons over the larger white buttons and sew in place for the eyes. To make the fringe of the mane, cut 14[16] sets of three 6in (15cm) lengths in yarn A and 16[18] sets of three lengths in B. Attach to the mane by folding three lengths in half to form a loop, inserting the crochet hook into the fi rst stitch of the fi rst stripe at the long edge and catching the looped yarn (see 1). Pull the loop a little way through, remove the hook and then thread the ends back through the loop, pulling them tight (see 2). Repeat to the end of the mane, attaching one tassel to the edge of each row and matching the colours of the stripes. Trim the ends of the fringe and sew in place, starting at the lower edge of the back, matching the stripes up the centre back of the hat and ending at the second round at the front of the hat.

Finishing touches

If making a crocheted lining, attach the twisted cords to the hat after inserting the lining. Weave in all the yarn ends. Make two 8[12]in (20[30]cm)-long striped twisted cords (see page 154) using 3[4] strands each of yarn A and B. Make two tassels (see page 155) measuring 4[5⅛]in (10[13]cm) long in B, and attach each to one end of the twisted cord, then stitch the other end of the cord to the tip of the earfl ap.

LINING

See pages 142–5 for how to make and attach a cosy fleece or crocheted lining.
