Cat's Hat

Jayne of Baby Grace Designs sent another fun set for Zella to model. I just loved The Cat in the Hat theme so much that I knew I had to make a hat to match!

I found the pattern to make it on Etsy by Desert Diamond Crochet. She has a lot of really adorable crochet patterns in her store that you can check out. I altered the pattern just a bit and added an extra row to each red and white stripe. I wanted it to be a bit tall like the original Cat in the Hat. I also used an H hook instead of a G hook that was requested, and instead of red heart yarn, I used Caron simply soft. I think it made it a bit sturdier and gave it more shape.

I looooove Dr Seuss. Cat in the hat was my oldest son's very first Halloween Costume.

I absolutely love the Hat you made. It is incredible.

What would that adorable outfit be, without that incredible hat.
