I stumbled upon tiptopapplesauce’s shop when searching for the Etsyhooker of the Week. Not only is the photography of her work amazing, but the patterns are just adorable, with many great details. This lovely hat is an example of that attention to detail. She thinks about the backgrounds of her photos as well as thinking about the tiny details in this hat that make it special, like the tassel at the top and the two different color button eyes.
The pattern for this puppy hat could easily be made for a boy or a girl. For a boy, you could just change a color or two and take off the bow. This would be a great idea for use as part of a costume for a party or (thinking ahead) Halloween so that your little one would not need a mask.
