Cheshire cat hat

cheshire cat 1

So a friend told me that she found a great crochet Cheshire cat beanie but was very sad that she couldn’t buy it because it only came in child size. I think that may have been a hint. So I took that hint and ran with it. I hope this is what she had in mind πŸ™‚

This pattern is written in American crochet notation and uses a 4mm hook and purple, pink, white and black 8ply wool.
