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.

I think it is cute! I made one of these for my grandson a couple years ago and had a heck of a time finding a pattern for it. It was either an adult one or for a toddler and nothing inbetween. I stay away from downsizing or upsizing my own patterns. lol

I can usually do it for hats, but something like a sweater...no way. I just go look for something similar in the size I want.

What a great hat! I'm not surprised that it's in demand. And wow, what a bargain yarn. You're good.

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?
