Several years ago, when Season Girl Stitches had just began, my oldest was in kindergarten. I wanted to make him a super fun character ear-flap hat that he would actually want to wear to school when it was cold. At the time, he was obsessed with the game Angry Birds so I made him a red hat that looked just like an angry bird. My son thought it was super cool, but when he wore it to school, he was made fun of by other kids. They all said it looked like Elmo. Needless to say, my son and I were upset. I was determined to make him a hat that would definitely not get made fun of. I hopped on Pinterest to look for some inspiration, and stumbled across a hat with spikes on top and that is how the dinosaur ear-flap hat was born. I crocheted the hat using the perfect dinosaur green with bright red spikes. The next morning, he was the coolest kid on the playground and everyone loved it.
My favorite thing about the dinosaur hat is that you can totally customize the colors! That is true about all of my hats, but this one is fun because it has three colors. I have made them using various football team colors. The cutest one has to be a dinosaur hat in size 6-12 months that was Denver Broncos colors. Leave a comment below and let me know what colors/team you would represent with your own custom dinosaur hat. The dinosaur hat is available in my Etsy shop. To customize, please send me a private message before ordering.
