Free Retro Robot & Pony Hat Patterns©

"Free Retro Robot & Pony Hat Patterns©"
By Connie Hughes Designs©
Here are two more hat patterns...with the cold and wet weather we've been 
having here it just makes you want to curl up and make a hat...and I
just love making things for kids...so here's a
Toddler size Robot Hat and a Child size Pony Hat! 
The Robot Hat can be for a boy or girl...the Pony Hat is perfect
if you have a My Little Pony fan, if so they'll love this hat! 


Both hats are easy to make and fun for the kids to wear! 
 I really enjoyed making the Pony Hat...I remember buying these
for my girls when they were little...I guess a good toy
never goes out of style!
 
I chose to make the rainbow colored pony because
of the of mane, it is so pretty!
I made 5 rows...the mane takes a while to make...so
I put on a movie and by the time
the it was over I was done...well I had 3 done!
This 1950's Toy Robot was my inspiration for the Retro
Robot Hat Below...I did change the color of the nose to white
because you just couldn't see it with the red...I personally
love the old classic toys...they were made to last...these
robots were heavy and made out of metal, although they were
probably painted with lead paint...but the quality and durablity
of these toys were outstanding!
The pattern for each hat is down below the Pony's in Blue and the Robots in Red!
I hope you enjoy making them...it's the perfect time to add some new
hats to the kids wardrobe!
