Crochet Bunny Hat Patterns

My girls love to wear hats, so last week I searched for a free crochet bunny hat pattern. I found two that I liked, this one from Red Heart;

and The Floppy Bunny Hat from Mama G's Big Crafty Blog.

It turns out that I don't like to follow patterns.  I never have the right yarn on hand, so I improvise :)  For my first white bunny hat I used Light & Lofty yarn and my classic hat pattern, then added a scallop edge and some ears that I improvised.  For the pink bunny hat, I followed the Red Heart pattern above, using two strands of sports-weight yarn, then my ears again.  Mally wore hers to church and town - they love them!  Please send me pictures if you use one of these patterns...I'd love to see your little bunnies!

Here is the pattern I used for the ears:
