I really didnt want to make an identical hat to the one I had made for @SumoChewie --- first off, that was made just for her... it was my going-away gift to her. And then there is copy-right issues...
So I asked Mike what kind of other ideas he had for a hat... turns out, he likes giraffes... so much so that I know he has a giraffe tattoo!
Well, the thought of a giraffe hat tickled me ... kind of like the Chemo hat i made for my cousin, Lisa. (She mentioned "eyes in the back of her head", and that got my noggin gears turning!) I am weird, what can i say? LOL
crochet giraffe hat:" and then "giraffe" --- and then, I got to hooking! :-)
I chose Toffee and Mustard ... i ended up using 2 skeins of the mustard and 1 of the toffee. I am not sure what brand the eyes are made from... some leftover acrylic stash.
I probably could have gotten by with a skein of each (there was a little left over) but because of the soft-sculptured horns, i wanted to make sure that the base of the hat was sturdy enough... so i ended up piecing together a liner for it.
<--- i really love how the free-hooked spot came out!
I cant wait to see a pic of him perched atop @MikeDistracted's head! :-)
