FO stranded Bunny Chullo
I recently shared 2 stranded animal chullos and this is the 3rd in the series. This one is for my little granddaughter who will be 4 next winter. I wanted it to fall over on the top like Mom's hat, but it ended up sticking straight up instead. A look a 4 year old can pull off quite well, luckily.



And here it is worn by my DGD.

Hi Merigold, What a gorgeous knitted hat! It's perfectly beautiful work and makes a great addition to your trio of hats. Your granddaughter is lovely and I wish her many happy times wearing her chula.

Hahah! That is adorable, but totally not what I expected when I read the subject line! I read it as ~stranded as in he's lost somewhere w/o a ride~ kind of thing. I didn't sleep well last night is my only excuse. It's a great hat though, I love it!

Gorgeous knitting! And what an adorable DGD! Wonder why the hat doesn't flop over like the bigger one.

I was trying to scale it down, but I think the problem is that scaling things down doesn't always work the way you might think it should. I think I needed it to be even longer on top to flop over. Maybe its a bit like scaled down people, the proportions are not the same as with grown up people, heads are bigger, arms are shorter, etc.

A longer tassel might make it flop over more, but it looks super cute the way it is and I'm not sure a tassle is a good idea for a kid anyway.
