To begin new row, chain 2 (does not count as first stitch).

Round 1: Using magic circle, make 10 DC in loop. Join last stitch to first stitch using slip. (10 stitches)
Round 2: Make 2 DC's in each stitch. (20 stitches)
Round 3: *2 DC's in first stitch, 1 DC in next stitch*, repeat for entire round. (30 stitches)
Round 4: *2 DC's in first stitch, 1 DC in next 2 stitches*, repeat for entire round. (40 stitches)
Round 5: *2 DC's in first stitch, 1 DC in next 3 stitches*, repeat for entire round. (50 stitches)
Round 6: *2 DC's in first stitch, 1 DC in next 4 stitches*, repeat for entire round. (60 stitches)
Rounds 7-16: DC in each stitch, repeat for entire round. (60 stitches)

Eye Pattern (in black, make 2):
Round 1: Using magic circle, make 6 single crochet (SC) in loop. Join last stitch to first stitch using slip. (6 stitches)

Round 3: Make 2 SC's in each stitch. (24 stitches)

The mouth and nostrils were free-form using slip stitch surface crochet, with stitches visible on the inside of the hat. The eyes were sewn through only the front stitch, so those stitches aren't visible on the inside.
