FO: Cat and Bear hats
Cat and Bear ears hats to be honest After many attempts to create animal faces, I decided to implement it in a different project. And for now rely on kids imagination and pretend play skills





The pattern is based on this simple but geniuos seamless design. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/kittie-hat

With the right fit it creates details without any additional work I grafted the top and used duplicate stitch and some kind of embroidery stitch for additional colours.

Cool! More animal hats! You could stitch in some whiskers and add buttons for eyes if that will help make these more realistic; however, they're fantastic just the way they are!!

Thanks! You know, I tried buttons and such but none of it made me squeal with delight. And that's the only reaction a cute hat should evoke, in my view

Oh please, those children could not be more adorable! I do see where your inspiration comes from. Lovely work on the hats. It's just enough to suggest the cats and bears.

Aw, thanks! Apparently, it's enough for them too, as soon as we dress to go outside they start growling and meowing
