Cat Ear Hat [knitting pattern]

October 15, 2014

One of my most popular knitting patterns has been this cat ear hat inspired by Eugenia Kim I made a while back. I guess you guys are as crazy about cats as I am! This time I decided to create a pattern that was in heavier yarn with more pronounced ears. I hope you like it!
Size US 13 knitting needles
Yarn- Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in grey marble (1 Skein)
Cast on 48 stitches
Rows 1-26: Work 26 rows in k2, p2 Rib.
Row 27 (Dec Row): *K2, p2, k2, p2tog; rep from * across row  Row 28: *K1, p2, k2, p2; rep from * across row.
Row 29 (Dec Row): *k2, p2tog, k2, p1; rep from * across row Row 30: *K1, p2; rep from * across row.
Row 31: *K1, k2tog; rep from * across row Cut yarn, leaving an 8 in. tail. Thread tail through stitches of last row and pull to secure. Use the tail to sew the side seam together.
Ears (make 4) 
Ears are knit in Garter Stitch. Cast on 5 sts. Increase 1 stitch each row (on the same side) until you have 10 stitches. Knit 2 rows. Decrease 1 stitch (on the same side as the increase sts.) until you are left with 5 sts. Bind off. Sew 2 ears together at the sides and then sew on to the top of the hat.

    I love this pattern and made my daughter one — a really fast knit. I'd love to make one for my 21/2 year old granddaughter. Is there a child pattern that is similar

    I love this pattern. I made it for my daughter – now my 21/2 year old granddaughter wants one too — is there a child version?

      Thank you! I've received a lot of requests for a child's size. I will post the pattern this Friday.
