Toddler Kitty Cat Hat
PINK CAT? I thought to myself “How will I pull this off without her looking like the Pink Panther. Last thing I want is to take her to see the neighbors and everyone upset her by calling her a panther ???? But, after drawing up about 20 cat hats she was really drawn to this one.

Slimer Crochet Hat
With the Ghostbusters anniversary going on and Krispy Kreme making their special Ghostbusters doughnuts, I thought I’d do my own tribute to the classic! This Slimer hat is actually sized to fit an adult, but my three-year-old has a lot of hair, so it fits him perfectly. We both can wear it. The teeth create a nice little brim to keep the sun out of your eyes. I hope you enjoy this free crochet pattern!
