How to Crochet a Horse a Hat Free Crochet Pattern

DIY Crochet Horse Hat Pattern Yes you read that right. 

crochet horse hat pattern free- Santa Crochet Hat for a HORSE


How to Crochet your HORSE a HAT complete with Pom Pom! 
FREE Written Crochet Pattern.

I've included some photos to help you along the way and how to measure your horse for his own hat.

To Crochet, this hat for an AVERAGE horse (Thoroughbred size ) 
I used a Double Knit yarn and a 5.00mm hook.

I am an extremely loose crocheter my gauge/tension was 12DC to 4 inches, so adjust if needed. 

This will make it fit an average horse please remember.

I wrote the original pattern to fit my 2-year-old Clydesdale whose head is still a lot bigger than most horses' heads.
 And it also fitted/stretched to fit my 6-year-old.

SO please check your measurements and adjust. I have included general horses' sizes to help you.

I have added The Orange and Green photos to help you size for a HORSE.

I just love that my 2 hobbies have come together Crochet and Horses.

I had a beautiful crochet Fly bonnet for the boys and wondered how easy it would be to crochet them a hat complete with POM POM

Luckily my little Clydesdale horse is such a sweetheart 
he would stand all day to be fussed over.

To help you make custom fit you will need  

Size between his ears 

And the measurement from below his ear to the top of his eyebrow. 

NOTE: This pattern IS a guesstimate as I have not actually found a solid measurement guide so if anyone could help that'd be fantastic. 

I would love to see what you've made so please tag me #LisaAuchCrochet if you post it online

but I can assure you that is farthest from the truth EVER!
