This hat TOTALLY cracks me up.
From these pics you wouldn't even know that it is a hat.
It looks like a full over the head furry ski-mask.
It is pretty funny!
So, I designed my own pattern for this. I really like it. The hat was super simple--of course knitting with fun fur is a little annoying, but the hat itself is super simple. Then the eyes and nose really threw me. I totally stalled out while contemplating how to do them. My mom crocheted the nose and then she couldn't figure how to do the eyes. I tackled three crochet projects and felt more confident in my crochet skills so I decided to give it a try. I got mad crochet skillz!! Hahaha!! Anyhow, I think it came out great! :)
London totally loves it. He is wearing it right now. Yup . . . July, hot, humid, and super warm hat. He LOVES it! What more could a Mommy ask for??? :)
