On Trend: 6 Fun Knit & Crochet Animal Accessories for Kids

There are a few fashion trends happening in knitwear apparel and accessories as of late, and “animal-like” knitwear is one of them. It seems that everywhere I look, whether it be online, in stores, or at street vendor stations – there are accessories with animal faces or ears on them.  The animal scoodies (scarf and hoody combined) and animal hats appear to be the most popular; it’s hard to resist getting these items because they’re so cute.

Lucky for you, since you know how to knit or crochet, you can make your own!  Below, I’ve rounded up a few of our patterns for children that incorporate animal elements for “aww” worthy projects.  If you’re ambitious, maybe you could knit the Bunny Hat and Booties set just in time for Easter!
