Martin has made the mistake of requesting novelty hats...........he will regret it

An owl hat was posted last week (which I forget to photograph ) and a panda is winging it's way to Switzerland as we speak.....

....he will be begging for me to stop before too long


Just had to say that I love it !  really made me smile  

Evidently there is no such thing as too many hats!!! Especially the cute ones you're making!  Please keep posting photos here!

It's a free download from the Ravelry site - you will probably have to join to view the link.

I have never tried intarsia before so it was another new technique.
I always adapt patterns so I used double black thread for the eyes to make them bolder and double black for the ears so that I didn't have to stuff them. Next time I would use a smaller size needle for the rib

Here are a few of the other hats that I have done in the past.....

The original owl hat that started it all off..

A pumpkin hat...

and one of my favourites and knitted many times....a Dead Fish Hat


Love them all especially the dead fish  

      love them thank you

I love wish I could knit. The owl is amazing aslo love the fish.

Love the dead fish too! (As well as the colours/design of the patterns on it). Those have to be a ton of fun to make!!

They're fave is the dead fish too .....I can't knit to a pattern to or well at all come to that

Here is the Ravelry link for the Deaf Fish hat - you can vary the pattern as you please

Hey Karen, its blinking cold here today, where's the bob hat draw been moved to ? I definitely need one.
