super cute and warm hat perfect for dalmatian lover
My 7 years old boy asked me to make him a dalmatian puppy hat.

Its really warm and can be worn outside even in very cold weather.

I ended up making this one to big so I kept it for myself and made him a smaller hat.

if you forget the mountain of spots you can use this tutorial as a base for any hats just change the shape of the ears if you want a bunny or a kitty or remove them if you dont want any

    sew the bottom part whit the top, you wanna make sure when you wear it the stitch are between the top and the bottom part and not under where you can see it , many many people myself included make the stitch on the wrong side the first time they make a hat
