Use my sleepy little raccoon hat knitting pattern to knit up an adorable woodland friend hat for your baby or toddler!
I rarely, if ever, google a hat before I make one because I want to make sure I’m coming up with something purely from my imagination and not directly influenced by anyone else’s interpretation.
But this time I did google “raccoon hat” really just to find out if that was something anyone would actually google.
And then, OF COURSE, there were a gazillion entries for coon skin or raccoon tail hats like you see in pioneer movies (or the mean kid from A Christmas Story). Which, duh, Cassie of course that’s what shows up.
So I still don’t know if anyone will actually google “raccoon hat for baby”. I hope so!
Anyway, although in real life they can be troublemakers, I think raccoons are cute. Especially their little hands and how they wash their food. That’s adorable.
So I made a cute little baby raccoon hat and I think Baby V looks super cute in it! And, the added bonus was that I learned some new things and now I know how to make striped ribbing like this which I totally love (the striped ribbing is like the raccoon’s tail…get it?) !
