Hat Pattern : Getting Started-
 The first thing you need to do is measure your dog's head according to the picture.

measure loosely, accounting for thickness of hair.
To make the hat larger you can either go up a hook size or two.
or you add additional chs to the ear hole chains.

Ch 2 at the end of each row does not count as a st, it is for ease of turning.
If pattern worked as written, it will fit approximately a 8-12 lb dog.

R : 1 - With C1, Ch 2, 4 dc in the 2nd ch from the hook, join with a sl st, ch 2.

R : 2 - *1 dc in the next st, 2 dc in the next st, repeat from *, join ch 2
R : 3 - Repeat pattern From R : 2

R : 4 - *1 dc in the next 3 sts, 2 dc in the st,, repeat from * around, join, ch 2

R : 5 - Repeat pattern From R :4

R : 6 - Repeat pattern from R : 4

R : 7 - R : 14  -Repeat pattern from R : 4

R : 15 -   -Forming the ear holes, ch 12, skip the next 7 sts,
join ch to the 8th st, with a dc, 1 dc in the next 11 sts, ch 10,
 skip the next 7 sts, join  ch to  8th st with a dc,
1 dc in each of the remaining sts, join to the 2nd ch,  ch 1

R : 16 - 1 dc in each st and in each ch around hat brim, join, ch 2

R : 17 - Change to C-2, In the first dc and in each dc around hat brim,
( 2 dc, ch 1), to form the ruffle edge, tie off and weave in the end.
Brim will sit a little ruffly,  You can block it for a more flat appearance.

 Ties: make 2

With C3, Ch 25, 1 dc in the end of the ch, turn and sl st back up the ch,
 attach tie to the hat, at the center of the ear hole on the underside of the hat brim.

 Pom poms:  Make 3, one in each color.
 With C2 wrap yarn around your 3 middle fingers about 25 times.
With a piece of yarn, lace it through the loops and tie securely.
Trim the loops evenly and  attach the one pompom to the top
of the Hat and the other 2 to the front of the hat.
I think Maximo is done celebrating!
