It’s a cliche, but so true… the creative juices have been flowing lately, fired up by the autumnal weather and cool evenings. I had to make an earflap hat, with a big pompom on top and faux thrumming. Oh yes. And I’m so pleased with how it turned out. I even figured out how to do crochet for the edges.
The hat is so named for my kitty Kiki, who helped me pick out the wool for this project. She picked out her very own colours, smart girl.
I have a feeling this is one sample I’ll be wearing around this winter. Now that the obsessive knitting of the last couple days is over, I need to sit down and write up the pattern and send off to the technical editor. And then I promise I’ll post on Ravelry and Etsy.
What do you think? Am I the only sucker for ear flap hats?
