I love this fleece hat with horns.  Such an easy sewing DIY.  Great idea for a fun hat for kids to wear.  Love that there is a video tutorial too!You can make a fleece or knit hat with horns.  The perfect hat for your little monster.
You will need the following:

A printed out version of the Free Fleece Fun Basic hat pattern PDF. You can get it here.
1/3 yard fleece (you could actually make several from this)
A few scraps of contrasting fleece for the horns 8″by”8 will cover it

Video tutorial here, written below:

1 – Cut out the Horn patterns

You will cut out two pieces of left and right horn.  Pin right sides together of each individual horn (I.E. both left together, both right together).

2 – Sew the horns

Sew each horn together.  For Baby hats use a .5 inch seam.  For children and adult hats use a .25 inch seam.  Sew two sides of the horn, leaving the straight side (bottom of horn) open for turning.

3 – Turn the horns

Trim with scissors close to the top point of the horn (this will give it a nice point then turned).  Invert the fabric by pushing it through right side out so you will have a nice point at the top of your horn.

4 – Place horns and make the hat

Place horns on right side of fabric as pictured.  Pin in place.  Put the second basic hat pattern (right side facing down) on top making a sandwich.  Follow the remaining steps as described on the basic hat page here.

  1. SO I took this basic hat and made an acorn hat for my daughter’s halloween costume, she’s going to be Autumn. I just printed two of the patterns and only used about half of the length of the pattern to create the top, added a stuffed stem sewed in at the top. When I constructed it, I treated the acorn top part and the full hat as one piece of fabric, sewed it up and bam done. I also lined it with more brown. It turned out cute, I only wish I had put in a pipe cleaner in the stem so it would stand up better.
