I had my birthday last week, and since the weather's thankfully getting cold enough for hats, I thought I'd make this as a birthday present to myself :D I've been seeing a few owl hats around lately, and I think they're adorable, so I was inspired.
The pattern I used is this one. I did the teen/adult size, which ended up being a little big for me (or maybe I just like my hats a little snug, I don't know).
I also made a few modifications to the pattern - made the earflaps longer and a bit rounder, changed the nose a bit, and I also added a pom pom at the top and a single crochet edge using all the colors. I used two buttons for the eyes.
I'm really pleased with it. I always wanted a hat with earflaps!
