DK – Cat Hat

I was asked to design and knit a Cat hat, that gave me the opportunity to write a knitting pattern for a Cat hat as well.

Looking at images of a cat’s head the mouth area needed 2 small defined cheeks, a triangular nose and whiskers.  I couldn’t think of a material I could use to make the whiskers without them sticking into the head wearing the hat, or stay sticking out after the hat had been washed.  So I sewed the whiskers on.

I could use the ears I had designed previously for the cat hooded scarf

I tried the hat with black eyes, like my other animal head hats.  It made the cat look very scary, so I went for a button with a hint of red and clear so you could see the colour of the wool through the button.

The knitting pattern for the cat hat is already on ebay.
