santa hat

November 23rd, 2009

I think it’s pretty easy to go crochet crazy. I had a great aunt who crocheted anything and everything: toilet paper cozies, sombreros for the tabasco sauce, ear cozies–not ear muffs, just two circles that fit around your ears! And now I see how you can go down that road. It’s just so easy to make up shapes as you go with crochet, increasing and decreasing wherever you choose and if you need to rip it out, it’s no big deal because it comes together so fast anyway. Which is why after only a few weeks after learning, I can crochet on the fly. This super ridiculous santa hat is a mash up of two other crocheted hats: the pointy hat I made for my daughter and the mustache hat on instructables. I can write up a pattern if there is enough interest, but really, if you can crochet you can probably just wing it.  Ho! Ho! Ho!

    My grandmother made not only the toilet paper holders, but also the tabasco sauce sombrero.

    That is really adorable! And practical as well, seems as though the beard could serve as a sort of scarf.

    oh my goodness – that is too funny! what a great hat!

    crochet was the only thing the women in my family did, and with abandon. no surface was safe. i think that is why i took up knitting, but for some reason i find it easier. go figure.

    Oh, this is FABULOUS! I know how to crochet but only scarves, LOL, I’ve never done increasing or decreasing. I might have to learn so I can figure this out! :)

    Okay. That is pretty darn cute.

    But if you get the urge to whip up sombreros for the tabasco, we’ll stage an intervention. :-)

  15. You absolutely have to write up a pattern! I am a beginner crocheter and need to make this for my goddaughter. No pressure….
