Ok so I kept the flyaway yarn in the bows for two reasons. One: It would have taken way too long to hide them in the actual braid. Two: I thought it looked a lot cooler and added to the rainbow effect.
Enjoy! The hat was a lot harder to make than you would think (mainly the braids since the bows were actually incorporated into the braid). I give credit to Charlotte for the bow pattern and Kelley for the cat ear pattern. I modified the hat(s) from a pattern that I bought and made the bows, eyes, nose, cheeks, and pom poms myself.
If I get enough requests for a combined hat pattern for this I just might give it. Have a wonderfully colorful weekend! I can’t wait to wear this baby places ^3^
