Darla's Bunny Hat – Multiple Sizes


Rhondda Mol


Here it is! Just in time for Easter 🙂

I have rewritten Darla’s Bunny Hat into the following sizes:

Preemie (11” circumference/4.5” height) 
0-3 month (13.5” circumference/5.25” height) 
3-12 month (15.5” circumference/5.5” height) 
1-5 year (18.5” circumference/7.5” height) 
5-10 year (19.5” circumference/8.25” height) 
adult (size medium/woman’s) (21.25” circumference/8.75” height)

The face details and the ears have also been revised to fit the new hat sizes.

The pattern is quite long because I wrote it in sections based on size for ease of use.

Just a note: 
When the Bernat Softee Chunky “new version” came out the original labels indicated it was a size 5 bulky (it has since been changed – thankfully! to 6).

I did a wpi comparison on the retired Bernat Softee Chunky and the new version Bernat Softee Chunky to allow anyone to replicate the pattern with the yarn of their choice. The retired version was 9 wpi and the new version of the Bernat Softee Chunky is 6 wpi.

Happy Crocheting!
