Animal hats

r-hippo-hat3Hats, hats and (no) more hats!

When I was browsing through this book, Nicholas spotted the Hippo hat right away and requested it (something about hippos lately).  Sabrina saw me working on Nicholas’ hat and browsed through the book and picked out the spotted eye doggy hat for herself.

r-doggy-hat4After working on the Poke hat, these animal hats are much easier (patterns are suited for child size heads).  The finishing reminds me of the finishing work we do on the amigurumi dolls that we crochet.

Thanks to Deanne for showing me this book, Knitted Critters by Jean Adel

      Hi there,
      Sorry for the delay.
      I’ve listed the name of the book in my comments. The book was borrowed from the library when I was working on this project.
