The First of Two Very Weird Hats

 

 

 

 


I decided to make a hat for my 2nd daughter's 'significant other' for Christmas.
This was actually a test.

My boyfriend thought that if hers actually put it on his head...

...he was a keeper.

Well, here you have it...

...photographic proof of his 'worthiness'! Har.

I started with a long pointy resist...

...then added black, grey and yellow fiber.

As it was drying, I 'telescoped' it down into pleats and a 'pointy finger'...

...like something magical in the Harry Potter books!

It had a more 'witch-like' brim when it was first finished...

...but I trimmed that off.

It still looks like something Dr. Seuss would draw...

...but for some reason, I just LOVE this hat!!

Wear it in good health, HB!!
