Describe "beaver hat". Need more information. A hat made from beaver yarn? A knitted hat that looks like a beaver?

Do you crochet at all? this is a very simple pattern I made for my great-granddaughter because she hates Justin Bieber. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/justin-beaver

That is a very nice hat. Can you share the pattern? I was thinking a beaver hat was something like a "top hat" only not as tall. Usually made out of beaver.

Oh, when she said it had a tail I thought she mixed it up with the coonskin hat. Never heard of a beaver hat. :oops:

Forgot about the "tail". Glydia may have been talking about the coon kin hat. There is a beaver hat I believe it is made from beaver pelts (no tail). It is, I believe more of a dress hat from years past. Site search coming up. Ok did a search and a beaver hat is a hat made from beaver pelt and the top hat is one of those. Popular from the 1500's through the 1800's. Several styles were made from the beaver pelt and they all appeared to be a "dress" hat of one kind or another. :-D

...sort've like the one Lincoln wore (stove pipe hat) only shorter I guess. Have to wait for glydia's response to see which it is.

How do i get the pattern to print from Raverly? I think the coon skin hat is so cute. My one great niece will be 3 in Dec. and going to have a new little sister in August. I thought about making them in pink or purple fun fur.Thanks for any help.

No but thanks, I am really looking for a pattern with ear flaps, and a hat that represents a beaver. I would love to knit or crochet one for my brother

Think you have to get the book to get the pattern on Ravelry - or you could try the Knitty pattern
