A friend saw picture of our FSM with his new pink hat and asked me to make her an adult version.
I have used worsted weight yarn and wrote the pattern for this very simple, yet versatile pattern named Nine Lives. The hat is worked in the rounds, the stitches for the ears are picked up directly on the hat.
The pattern is free, and available to download by clicking on this button:
