My daughter loves animals and tigers, so she wanted me to make her this tiger hat. Her school's mascot is the tiger too! So after some trial and error, I made her this hat! She loves wearing it and pretending to be a tiger!

Are you asking for ideas for a hat? What's he into?

Round four is a little confusing. Says dbl in next sts and 2dbl in the next st. Think it should say dbl in next two sts and 2dbl in the next st.
Cute pattern.

I haven't crocheted for 20 years, so I take every little thing literally, as I fumble along. Sometimes I can't tell if it's me or the instructions. It's usually me:) My hat is turning out really cute. Thanks for the pattern.
