We’ve seen puppy hats and kitty hats. But I’ll bet you’ve really been eager to see the next type of animal hat knitting pattern collection: bunny hats! In my opinion, there are few things cuter than a hat with big bunny ears. I’m not even sure if I enjoy seeing bunny ears hats more on babies and children, or adults!
I was a little concerned when I first began to look for bunny hat patterns, because they all seemed to be for babies, and maybe for children. Happily, as I continued looking, I finally began to see some hats for older people. Because why should the little ones have all the fun?
Knitting Patterns for Bunny Hats — Featuring Ears
Bunny Hat: This is one of the easiest of the bunny ears hats. The ears are super-simple, and the finished hat will look precious on any baby!
Bunny Beanie: This is a little trickier than the previous hat, but not overly so. The ears look so sweet!
Bunny Ears Hat: This hat takes the ears from the preceding pattern and adds them to a fully ribbed beanie, which may help the hat fit better. (I personally LOVE fully ribbed hats.)
Knit Bunny Hat: This might be the easiest of the bunny hats. The only tricky part is the face embroidery (although that is also my favorite part of this adorable hat).
Zookeeper Bunny Hat: This is one of the more complex hat patterns, but it’s also possibly the cutest. And as a bonus, it comes in three sizes, from infant to adult!
Bunny Hat: Now we’re into the adult-sized patterns, and we simply must start with this cutie-patootie hat with a little fuzzy bunny tail. I kind of want to make this for myself!
Fuzzy Bunny Hat: Or maybe I’ll make this one for myself. Look at those adorable floppy ears!
Mutant Bunny Hat: Here’s the perfect hat for someone with a warped sense of humor… or a teenager who is way too cool for a typical cutesy bunny hat!
