FO: Dr. Suess Hat - just for fun
When I saw those stocking hats Stonington posted http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...t=stocking+hat I couldn't get a red and white striped version out of my head. I bought the cheapest acrylic yarn I could find but to my surprise my GD wants it and my GS wants a green one. I got the cheapest yarn possible because I was sure nobody would want a Dr. Suess Hat. Silly me. This is just OTN and as my only camera is on my cell phone I took it right outside for a photo op. It was too dark out to take another when I realized the top of the pic was chopped. That's OK because it's just silly, just for fun.


ETA: How cheap was it? 1 1/2 balls of red and 1 of white in Lion Brand Fun Yarn @ $.99 from the local Grocery Outlet. I might win the Grinch Award for Being Cheap!

I think it's cute! I think they would be popular with kids especially.

Thanks, Jan, I think it is impossible to predict what teenagers will or will not like. My DD won't have 2 teens till Sept. next year but my GS (12) could fool us on that one. Some days I think he was born a teenager.

I don't have grandkids, but I remember my own girls that age.

I look forward to seeing your FOs and/or WIPs. Your Mario hat is delightful. After it and the tutu set I can hardly wait to see what you've got next.

That's a nice hat When I saw the title I expected a high head, you know - one that doesn't end in a tip and needs wiring to keep it upright. Not quite how I remember Dr Seuss his hat to be, but this might even be better Definitely easier to wear.

And great that it is such a bargain. Isn't it fun that you don't need to spend that much to get something desirable?

Thanks. Yeah, the Cat in the Hat isn't quite like that, but somehow it seemed like it belongs in a Dr. Seuss book. I'm now working on one in Green Tones for my grandson.

The red and white stripes were kind of like a song that gets stuck in my head and if I can hear the whole thing it sometimes goes away. LOL Now maybe I'm done with red and white striped stocking hats.

Oh that is sooo cool! I love the concept, and I think it was smart to knit the hats inexpensively! Plus, washable hats for kids is the only way to go! Great work!
