Rat Hat

I have a friend. Well, I have several, but this particular friend recently had a birthday. And because she is a special friend I felt that she was knitworthy. Hmm, I wondered, what would she like? Oh, I know, she has asked me a few times about making a black fuzzy hat (apparently she had one 20 years ago and loved it). I’m not a huge fan of fun fur (is anyone?) (actually, I’ve never knit with it before…), but a fuzzy hat requires fun fur. So I bought some fun fur and knit it together with some superwash wool.

The result was surprisingly respectable (and the fun fur was not as hard to work with as I thought it would be).

My friend loves her hat. Her face lit up when I gave it to her.

It was totally worth it.
