Puppy Dog Hat Pattern
I was inspired to make this hat since my daughter, Audrey loves animals, especially dogs. Ever since she was a baby she loved our Labrador dog! She told me to make the doggy hat yellow to match our dog. She loves to wear this hat all the time! This puppy dog hat is an easy to follow pattern and it’s so much fun to create. I really like how the ears turned out.
