  7. I love it. I was asked today if I could knit some angry birds for a friend. I follow you and was just catching up on my reading when I noticed your lovely crocheting. Might have to have a go, though I'm a real crochet beginner and am not too sure about reading patterns. Thanks for sharing this though.

  15. OH MY WORD!! I just found your blog tonight when I searched for crochet pumpkins--on row 10 of your adorable pattern right now. But I'm so thrilled I came to your latest post. My son is a HUGE fan of Angry Birds--like completely obsessed. I will be making this for him for Christmas for sure. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern! I feel like I should pay you for it!

  16. Hi Teresa, I love this hat! What size is it? I'd like to make one for my 5 year old son. Thank you!

  17. Hey Teresa,

    This is a question about your crochet hobo bag and not about the angry bird hat. I couldn't find your email address, and I really want your help on this.

    I crochet the bag, but I'm finding that the handles when I connected them to the bag looked kind of puckered and not really smooth. Am I doing something wrong in the connecting part of this? Maybe I'm whip stitching too tightly?

    If you have time to answer this and help me I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks!

  18. Hi! This looks great. Is it for a child or for an adult?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi! This looks great, and seems simple enough. May I ask if the hat is sized for an adult or a child? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Zknitz - I would say that is probably related to pulling the yarn to snug as you are stitching the handles to the bag.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm a teen and loving it! Thank you for sharing this to us! :D

    My brother and I are also a huge fan of Angry Birds! I can't wait to try this out!

    But first, I have to remember the basics and do some of your tutorials. That way, I can have a sense of fulfillment! GOD BLESS AND MORE POWER TO YOU!

    :D

  30. I started the angry bird hat but it is too big even for my adult head. I was planning on making one for a 4 yr old and an 8 yr old. How do I make it smaller especially all the extra parts.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi Teresa, this is a really cool hat and I love it. I want to make it for about 16-19 inch head size (baby 6-12 months old). Can you please please please tell me how to adjust your pattern? Thank you very much. Can't wait for your reply... :)

  34. Teresa,
    Can you make a pattern for a Garfield the cat hat? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  35. I wanted to make a child's size hat. I used a G/6-4.25MM needle instead of an H and it fits my little ones. They are 5, 8, and 10. Hope this helps anyone needing a smaller hat :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is a great pattern thanks. Just finishing up my third one and I used it to do a piggy too. Fun to make and they are very popular. Funny enough all the ones I've made are for adult males. Go figure!

  37. I made one like this last year. Also made a pig and the yellow bird. Just winged it! They turned out so cute.

  38. I made two of these hats [with color and expression variations] for my 6 year old grandsons for Christmas, both of whom are crazy for the Angry Bird games. They love their hats !!! Wearing them to DisneyWorld right after Christmas, people kept stopping and asking to take photos and wondering where the hats might be purchased. The boys proudly told strangers their "meemaw" had made them. Thank you for developing and sharing these darling designs.

    1. How wonderful that they love them. If you or anyone else decide to sell the caps, you may want to consider selling them as "red cardinal" or "Grumpy Bird" caps.

  39. hello teresa. i made this and it turned out great. i want to make a smaller version though. im not too creative so i dont know how that would turn out for me with making everything smaller.
