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.

Size: Pattern worked as written,  will fit approximately a 8-15 lb dog.

Ch 3 at the end of each row  counts as dc.
rows are joined with a slst.

Hat - Starting at the top of the hat.
R: 1 - With C1, Ch 4, 4 dc in the 4th ch from the hook, join with a sl st, ch 3. (5dc)

R: 12 - Ruffle Edge party hat -
Change to C-2,
(2 dc, ch 1), in each dc around hat brim, to form the ruffle edge,
tie off and weave in the end.
Brim will sit a little ruffly,

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!
