Koala Bear Crochet Hat Pattern


Seriously, who doesn't love Koala Bears?  I always thought that I would like one as a pet... until I saw one wet and snarling. Seriously, google it. It is a terrifying image. So instead of indulging that childhood dream, I decided to make a free Koala Bear crochet hat pattern. The good thing about this little Koala Bear Crochet Hat is that it will never snarl, even if its soaking wet (I make no guarantees concerning the wearer). Plus, it will look twice as cute on your little one:)
You can buy it HERE from my etsy shop.
OR if you want to make it yourself,  here is the free pattern.

Finishing Touches
 I put a little tuft of yarn hair at the top. (I used 8-10 strands about 6 inches long)
SC around the entire base in an accent color. (This is, of course, optional. But I think the Koala needed some color)
Add Tassels. I love braided tassels. And they add more color! Win win.

Enjoy!
