Little Piggy Hat Pattern Available for Purchase!

Exciting Thursday around Brownie Knits! We are releasing our latest pattern: Little Piggy Hat. This pattern was such fun to create and work up. I let my mind run free to get the three-dimensional elements to the hat. As fun as it was to make, it is even more fun to see it worn. You will love knitting it and they will love wearing it. Perfect for boys and girls of all ages--change up the color to create some different looking piglets!


This super fun pig hat is three-dimensional with raised ears and a stuffed and raised snout. The little tail on the back is a corkscrew and is great fun to make. The eyes can either be created with yarn or buttons. The hat is knitted from the brim up in the round and the ears, tail, and snout are knitted flat and sewn onto the hat. From newborns to adult, all will love this Little Piggy!
