Base Fleece Hat Tutorial --> [link]
If you want to wire your ears so they stand up: [link]
Part 2 of making a Typhlosion hat and the patterns for this: [link]

So this is actually part one of three tutorials centered on this new Typhlosion hat I made, and now you can learn to make it too. :)

Don't feel limited to ears either, this can be used for anything that you want to put through a seam!

Bonus tip: If you're using a sewing machine, use your reverse function to sew back first and then forward. This will keep your stitches from unraveling.

Tutorial (c) ~clearkid Please don't re-post this anywhere, kindly leave a link instead.

For the glory of God!

If you have any questions, feel free to post them below.

If you sew across the bottom edge of the ears, which closes them, how can you put wire into them?

You can slip the wire in between the stitches. :)

Now, when it comes to using wiring to keep long/skinny ears do you avoid the uncomfortable half circle wiring in the back? could i completely avoid this and only put the wiring in the ears without putting wiring in any other part of the hat? Do you get what I'm saying..?

When I added the wolf ears, they won't stay stand still. They keep falling back and forth. Any advice?

Okay, I am working on the Toothless hat and I don't know how to do the two bottom fins? Do I just add another seam in the rectangle?

I plan to make a jester's hat with only two points. How would I add those in, since they'll be a bit of an awkward shape? :} I only have a week to make this hat perfectly, so I'd love some advice! <3

I'm wondering, how would this work to add Jester...flaps? I'd like to make a Jester hat, with only two points, not three. I know how to sew the dangly parts together, I'm just wary of attaching it to a hat. :} The hanging parts will be much longer than ears, etc, and I don't want to mess up, I only have a week to make this hat perfect! <3

I'm confused.

So if I wanted to make a pony hat with ears, do you think I should make the seams on the sides of the head and add the ears a bit further down? Probably the best course of action? And if I wanted to maybe add a mane, do you think it'd be best to sew it into the center seam?

Yep. A tip, if you add the ears wider apart, you need to give the ears a serious angle at the bottom so they'll stand up straight against the curve of the hat.

So, let's say I'm making a pony hat. Would it be best to orient the seams so they go along the sides of the hat and then add the ears further down?
