How to crochet a dog hat
Crocheting a dog beanie is not very difficult. You will most likely crochet in the rounds and leave holes for the dog ears because you want them to be free.
Unless the pattern does not. If you love pets and are looking to crochet them something then you may love the crochet cat sweater, crochet cat collar and cat scarf.

Best part of this project is, it will not need much yarn. So it is safe to call it a scrap yarn project. dog heads are small, which means, the hat will be small too. Unless you have several dogs, then you might need a bit more yarn.
Red heart super saver yarn can be a great place to start if you are looking for some yarn. If you are looking for a different alternative, then Lion Brand might come to the rescue.

Tips To Crocheting A Dog Hat
As much as it is a simple crochet project, you want to look out for a few things as the dogs are curious animals.
- Do not make the hat too tight for the straps it sits on their neck, assuming the dog hat pattern has straps. If it is too tight, you might choke them
- As dogs move around a lot, you want to use stitches that will not have the dog trapping itself into things, or getting things trapped into its beanie
- Do not make the crochet dog hat too long, unless you are trying to make a slouchy beanie.
