Pirate Walrus Hat + Pattern Request

I finished this project a while ago, but only recently got around to loading the photos onto my computer. It was a late birthday present for my boyfriend, who requested a walrus hat with an eye patch.











The stitching for the eye patch string is soooo crooked, but he's happy with it the way it is and I'm honestly too lazy to go back and fix it. I was going to make a tail in the back, but in the end decided that it probably would have some trouble lying flat over his ponytail. This is the second hat that I've made without a pattern (well, other than the basic hat pattern). I'll post the first one eventually, once I fix the brim and put the flaps back on.

Speaking of walruses, does anyone know of a free pattern for a crocheted (or knit, or sewn - I'm not picky!) walrus toy? My boyfriend has said he'd like it if I made one for him, but so far I've only found a couple patterns on Ravelry that are either not free or not to my liking.

Cute hat! What about modifying a seal pattern to have teeth and whiskers? There are lots of free seal patterns, and I have a free seal pattern too.

Love it! That's really cute.
It's amazing what you can do by modifying a hat pattern.

If you want a way to not have interference with a ponytail, you can make a slot in the back to pull the ponytail through.

You could probably modify just about any kind of doll or stuffed animal pattern to make a walrus. You obviously have the imagination for it. What about starting with a basic penguin pattern except instead of a beak, put on whiskers and tusks?

Pirate Walrus FTW! Arrrrh, matey!

There's a great manatee pattern at NeedleNoodles that you might be able to adapt...

This is so cute it hurts hahaha... Is the mesh open enough to see through a little when it's down over the face? This is really a great fun project.
