Donguri hat

Added Dec 26, 2008

by verypurplepe...

Tokyo, Japan






The pattern is actually for a hat with earflaps. But as it was being crocheted, the hat slowly turned to the shape of donguri (acorn) in my eyes, so I decided not to make the flaps and put some chained strings instead. I also added a chained loop on top of the hat.

Material Notes

chunky wool yarn





LuvCrochet for the lovely pattern, Ravelry (where I found the pattern).

    I agree. Has there ever been a more adorable crocheted hat? No, I don’t think there has. I’ve never loved a yarn hat or cap in my life, but I’m nuts about this one.
