Hello there Kitty cat
I used Red Heart Yarns throughout. Nothing too fancy. I did, however, take special care with it because I've seen some that just didn't take the cake. It's easy to make things look sloppy on a white crochet hat. The bow was simply a strip of left to right crochet. I suppose about 10 dc back and forth for about 4 inches. I made a small strip for the middle and single crochet them together in the back. I thought that was easier, in case something happens to the bow, it's a simple replacement. Plus it makes the corners stand up well for a good crisp edge. For the ears I did a crab stitch over them.
I looked at a lot of photos via google before I settled on one I liked. Generally I like to find one that I love and mimic it. Be it a hand drawing, a sticker from the 80s or movie poster. If I think I can do it, I do. Or take bits from one or two that I like. It's art. I'm not always perfect with it and don't always think it's a great job but I like to make people happy. The young teen girl was overjoyed with it. I've never met her but her mother says she loves me. :p To make a kiddo that happy with some yarn and knots, makes me incredibly happy. :)
