Psychedelic Earflaps November 11, 2007

Posted by merp in FOs, Knitting, Pisco!.


Pattern: Baby Earflap Hat (from Hey Julie)

Yarn: 1 skein of acrylic from Target

Time to finish: about 3 evenings (plus ends woven and ties braided this last[?] Sunday)

Gift for someone’s first birthday, a little generous on the sizing. And her parents aren’t exactly Deadheads. But mom loved it, and says it will go with baby’s winter coat.


Sorry to disappoint with nothing but a butternut squash to stand in for the baby this time, but the session with the live model did not go well.


Sometimes I think the animals don’t like me very much.

A Postscript, from December 2009: For some reason I get an awful lot of hits on this post, so as a tip for all of you looking for a cute earflap hat pattern, Cyn’s Brainmonster solves the curling earflap problem quite well.  Plus, scary teeth!!

More hats on pets! More hats on pets!
If only I could knit, I could really make Ms. Henrietta Pussycat look pretty. I guess I will have to sew her a dress instead. (Good thing I’m learning to sew!)

I love that you’re using a butternut squash as your model. Love it!

…well, it was handy, and didn’t object. Shortly thereafter it became soup, and the rest of it is pulped and in the freezer, waiting to become a Thanksgiving pie.
