Angry Bird Pig Hat

Angry Bird Pig Hat - CarlI can’t believe how popular the Angry Bird Hats have been, and now I’ve received a request for a Angry Bird Pig version.  What I find very entertaining is that the majority of these hats are not for children, but for the men.  Maybe that means they really are for the children….just the grown up version!

Below is the pattern.  You can download a printable version here: Angry Bird Pig Hat
