Notes:

  • This pattern is written in US terms.
  • Sizing will vary depending on how tightly or loosely you crochet. If you would like to keep the sizing the same, please check your gauge before starting this project.
  • This pattern is worked flat and then seamed at two ends to form the sack hat.
  • Embroidering the face:
    • To embroider the mouth, I basically took my yarn with a yarn needle and made a straight line to create the mouth. I then stitched over it to keep the line in place.
    • To embroider the fangs, I just stitched one line on each side of the mouth.
