Thanks so much for the many and varied ideas for hats. Our first model of the day is wearing a little cowboy number (which looks far better off than on!) Thanks Mary Deb for the suggestion.
Next we have a rose as suggested by Giulietta.
And finally Monkee Maker's Cake and lots of little stripey ones.
I also wish to amend my earlier post. The plain hats only 20 mins to make. Honestly. However, the fancy ones can take blinking ages. This is a great way to use up all those scraps of yarn that I have been hording for years - I refuse to throw away anything longer than 12". Is it any wonder I drive my husband nuts?!
I will still peruse the list and see what else I can come up with. Dalek? Oh yes Warren, I think so! (All those fiddly bits - this one could take all evening!)
