Raaar! It’s a hat!

I picked up crochet at the beginning of the year, and it turns out there is more to make than sweaters and scarves. With such a fantastic community on the interwebs, I’ve found patterns or ideas for everything from cute little animals to a pillow with boobs on it. However, I find myself gravitating towards animal hats; they are so trendy right now as accessories, and quite honestly, they are overwhelmingly adorable. I don’t even think men can resist a stitched hat that looks like a critter.

After looking at some others’ patterns, I decided to try out my own. What I came up with is a tiger beanie with earflaps.


It’s a shame it’s not colder out. With the hot Texas sun in this picture, it doesn’t capture the hat’s coziness. It unfortunately does capture my overgrown grass.


I’m very excited to contribute to the Ravelry community, so I’m working on putting the pattern together. It will be free whenever it is completed. I’d love to hear what y’all think about it.

    A norwegian reader reports for duty! First, don’t be intimidated by the whole Norway as the sacred knitting country’ thing, haha. In the past, it was mostly grandmothers who knitted, but it’s become trendy in the last yeas to knit, so I think it’s kind of a new and exciting journey for many here, I should know as I’m one of them;-)Good luck!
