Okay really is he just not adorable. I first saw this little moose crochet hat on pinterest, but there was no pattern to be found ANYWHERE for him. I searched and searched and searched some more and was so disappointed that not one individual wanted to share there pattern. I would have bought it for a high price as I am a Northerner and these little buggers are our neighborhood pets.
I decided to have a go at it and see if I could duplicate it. After several tries at the ears EUREKA I got it.
The hat is the FREE Aviator hat I found on pinterest over at YARNOVATIONS
Once I had the hat all done I then went to work on getting the ears just right. This step took me several tries to get the ears just right. Below are my instructions I hope you can understand them.

Row 2 - Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each chain across (7sc)
Row 3 - Ch 1 turn and sc in each sc across (7 sc)

Start with a magic circle
Round 1 - ch 1 and work 6 sc in ring
Round 2 - ch 1, 2sc in same as joining, sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc.
