Finger Puppet Pals Crochet Patterns

Over the holidays, my daughter received finger puppets as a gift from her cousin.  She absolutely loves them, and talks to them, kisses them, and makes them talk to her other toys!  (She's 18 months old)  This inspired me to look for crochet patterns so that I could give her some more finger pals.  

So today, I am bringing you not one pattern, but several!  There are too many cute designs, I couldn't just choose one!

G Square Cap and Bill Crochet Hat

I love crochet hats!  Here’s a very simple way to play with Granny Squares to create your very own groovy billed cap!  

Designed By:  Farrah for 365 Crochet Skill Level:  Easy
Yarn:  Bernat Softee Chunky Size 5, approx. 100yds. Hook:  G/4.0mm Gauge:  14 sts x 12 rows = 4” Size:  Adult head, approx 21 inch circumference. (stretchy)

Please do not copy or sell my pattern!  You may link to it, you may sell the finished product, I don't mind, as I did not "invent" the granny square!  Have fun!
First you must make 5 granny squares in the color(s) of your choice.   I altered the granny square pattern a little bit, and used hdcs instead of dcs, because I didn’t want the squares to be too wide. 
My colors changed on these rnds: Rnd1-Tan, Rnd2-White, Rnd3 and 4-Tan, Rnd 5-White, Rnd6-Tan

The pattern for my granny square is as follows:
Ch5, sl st to 1st ch to form a loop
Rnd 1:  ch4, (counts as 1hdc and ch2sp), *3hdc in loop, ch2* repeat 3 times, 2hdc in loop, sl st to 2nd ch of beg ch4.  Ch4…
