Santa Crochet Hat for a HORSE 

How to Crochet your HORSE a HAT complete with Pom Pom! 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 your horse (TB) 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.

Size between his ears 

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

 This 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

I have NOT charged for this pattern, most people think if we own horses we are rich, 

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

So Please support my website by sharing the pattern amongst your friends and family who may be interested

 in my many free crochet patterns 

 If you have a horse available to measure it Does make it easier to find a fit. I have added in several measurements to help you croche the horse hat, but these are AVERAGES I have taken from bridle sizes. 

To make a custom fit crochet for a horse you will need 3 measurements 

BROWBAND (start to measure from the back of ear around and across the front of ears

 to the back of the other ear) 

Loose enough to get 2 fingers to sit comfortably. 

Small Pony -12'
