How to Crochet a Puppy Dog Hat Pattern

Crochet Puppy Dog Child Hat

These puppy dog hats are so cute to make and see on children. My daughter loves dogs and our family dog is a yellow lab! So she wanted me to make a yellow hat to match her dog. I really love how the ears turned out on this puppy dog hat. It is so cute to see the ears flop up and down when she wears this hat!
